Some more quotations reflecting on the “progressive” responses to the Orlando massacre – emphasis added by me, four items in total…
“An oppressed Muslim has done bad things to people who matter – not worthless ”white trash” girls in Rotherham, but precious members of the LGBTQ community… How could this happen? How could one liberal pet turn on another like that? In Guardianista (The Guardian newspaper -JG) hagiology, the LGBTQ community and the Muslim community are even more sacred than the left-wing cartoonists who died at Charlie Hebdo who, after all, were mainly White.” – Tobias Langdon, the Occidental Observer – “Sunshine hate: Liberal responses to the Orlando vibrancy” June 16th, 2016.
“The unspoken truth is that while Christians in the West, often accused of homophobia, view homosexuality as a sin, many if not most do not condemn the sinner. In the Arab world, homosexuality is viewed as a sin punishable by death… One wonders if this Islamist intolerance and homophobic slaughter of gays will be noticed by the politically correct left who repeatedly say, as they did after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris in which a Jewish deli was deliberately targeted, that this massacre or that massacre by someone shouting “Allahu Akbhar” has nothing to do with Islam. They see homophobia only when American citizens try to exercise their religious liberty and not cater a gay wedding.” – Daniel John Sobieski, American Thinker, “Islamist homophobia: The unspoken truth about Orlando”, June 15th, 2016.
“In the hours after the shooting, ACLU attorney Chase Strangio skewered those who offered their ‘thoughts and prayers’ for the victims and their families. ‘You know what is gross – your thoughts and prayers and Islamophobia after you created this anti-queer climate’… He continued by lambasting ‘the Christian right’ for pushing legislation to protect the conscience rights of individuals and business owners. ‘The Christian Right has introduced 200 anti-LGBT bills in the last six months and people blaming Islam for this. No’.” – ACLU attorney Chase Strangio quoted by Matt Hadro in “ACLU lawyers say Christians caused the Orlando shooting” – Catholic News Agency, June 13th, 2016.
“Orlando? So what else is new? Why the excitement? I am puzzled that everyone is distraught over a perfectly ordinary act of terrorism by a perfectly ordinary Muslim terrorist. We have seen these attacks before and will see them again. They grow monotonous, like car crashes. They are as interesting as a commercial break… Why the surprise? We know Muslims kill Christians. We know they stone adulteresses to death. We know they drive airplanes into buildings. We know they mutilate women. We know they bomb airliners. We know they destroy historic monuments. We know they kill their daughters for losing their virginity. We know they kill homosexuals. We know they make coordinated mass attacks on cities. We know they are incompatible with societies of the First World. We know they have no respect for our laws. We know they hate us.” – Fred Reed, “Fred On Everything” – “Hussein Obama, 50; America, 0: More adventures in multiculturalism”, June 16th, 2016.
