Because of our political beliefs and unabashed love of America, Dan and I (and probably Nick and John, too) have been called many things here @ GayPatriot and before we launched this blog. A sample is the tired, old epithet: “Gay Republicans are like Jews working for the Nazis”…. you get the idea.
This knee-jerk, simpleton and ignorant attitude comes mostly from hard-core liberal gays who think with one mind and never depart from the Gay Party Line or the Leftist Mantra on any issue. I now have the pleasure to expose hypocritical these people are and how their true colors are quite easy to illustrate.
Thanks to one of our commenters, RightWingProf, for tipping me off to a very interesting exchange of postings between Tim Blair and Cathy Seipp.
Tim Blair picked up on a column Cathy wrote in the LA Times called “The fascists of free speech.” It is similar to the thought behind this posting I did earlier this week. It is a paradox that the charges leveled against President Bush and conservatives are actually committed by those complaining the loudest. Those who scream how Bush is quashing free speech are the very ones who are actually doing it.
Cathy’s money quote that Blair highlights is this:
But let’s also say that one of the great paradoxes of our time is that two groups most endangered by political Islam, gays and women, somehow still find ways to defend it.
Tim Blair adds this gem in his post:
A tip for pro-Islam leftists: when next you feel the need to defend political Islam, just imagine you’re defending anti-gay, anti-abortion, Darwin-opposing southern US creationists. You may be surprised at the change in your thinking.
Let me add a new thought to the dialogue…. before you toss out stupid bumper sticker-like insults and accusations that the Human Rights Campaign creates using your unaccountable money, look in the mirror and ask yourself how our community was better served when Democrats controlled Congress for 40 years and when a Democrat President implemented DADT and signed DOMA in the dark of night.
And how can any self-respecting gay or lesbian American be on any side of the War On Terror except on the side of those of us who want to defeat Islamic fascism that directly murders (not passes legislation against) gays and lesbians.
Paradox check, indeed!
