- When I previously said the Left should have no problem with Gutfeld opening up a gay bar next to the 9/11 mosque I was operating under the assumption that Leftism was an ideology possessed of an internal logic and coherence, and not merely an emotional and reactionary response to all things “the Right.” Forgive me.
So during “Greg’sGayBarGate,” there’s been the usual piffle from the humorless left – all who accuse me of provocation. The best, of course, arrive from Media Matters – home to lonely, middle-aged men who still write “FAIL” in their tweets.
Here’s Simon Maloy, a senior associate master fellow emeritus:
Make no mistake — Gutfeld’s motives are offensive. He thinks the way to justify his own religious intolerance and that of his conservative cohorts is to mock Muslims and gay people.
Of course, he offers no evidence of said religious intolerance.
(seriously, Simon, dad had bigger dreams for you.) Anyway, when half-wits are half-right, does that make them a quarter- cretinous? Perhaps. But hey, they are correct that my Islamic gay bar is a provocation. But it wasn’t directed at Muslims (for them, it’s actually a sincere gesture).
It was a provocation toward ignorant cowards like Maloy who – rather than condemn real homophobia in the world, prefer to focus their wet, lefty whine on righties who are far more enlightened than they could ever be. In fact, their accusations of Islamophobia are meant to hide their cowardice concerning gay rights. Think about it – I’m putting gay rights front and center, before an ideology that condemns homosexuality. No one on the left has the balls to do that. That’s why I make them look pathetic.
So, why would they call me a bigot, yet remain silent when faced with a gay-hating ideology? Why would you side with those who would kill you – instead of a guy who just wants to open a gay bar? Is it because, for them, politics means more than preservation? Well, when my bar opens, maybe they can stop by and explain it to me. The first round is on me. Expect tiny umbrellas.
