We are seeing similar homophobic acts from the left here in the States. San Francisco, long thought of as the gay capital of the world, has turned on the gay community to bow and scrape to Islam. Last week I wrote about a group Muslims who shot a gay man in his face. In that piece I noted that the homophobic shooters were not identified as Muslims in the San Francisco Chronicle -- SF Gate. What is not known is that allegedly this was not a decision made by the media, but by the DA.
Worse yet, the story wasn't reported for a full week by the media. There was a concerted effort within the San Francisco police department to bury this story, and it is only because one officer leaked the report to the media that anything was ever reported.
This is was not an exception. This is a trend.
The latest outrage from across the pond. The EDL media reports:
As many of you already know, the EDL has growing gay support comprised of people who are, like the rest of us, proud of our culture and heritage, but also especially concerned about the particularly virulent hatred that the Islamists reserve for gays. Islamic preachers have been filmed here in Britain calling for the execution of homosexuals, yet have faced little of the public outrage that is instead directed towards those who highlight the danger of this intolerance. We only expect our homosexual support to grow, based on the fact that the institutional left seems to be abandoning support for gay rights in the never-ending quest to appease their Islamist allies.
It has long been clear that the left has abandoned the Jews, whose rights they previously fought for, in order to secure support among Europe’s growing and increasingly-radicalised Muslim population, in which anti-Semitism is regrettably mainstream. This was driven home most strikingly when it was revealed that Jews who sought shelter in Sweden after the Second World War are now fleeing again, this time from Islamic attacks aided and abetted by the leftist government.
It now seems that, just like with the Jews, the left is unwilling to confront the fact that the main threat to the rights and freedoms of homosexual Britons comes from the Islamists and the blatantly and violently homophobic Sharia law that they promote. A gay EDL supporter and long-time member of the RMT transport union was threatened with expulsion from his union after writing his Regional Secretary to ask why the RMT played such a role in organising the pro-Islamisation and anti-free speech protests that greeted Geert Wilders’s visit to London and the EDL’s march in support. As the EDL member—who has now resigned in disgust from the RMT—put it:
“The EDL is an organisation opposed to the Islamification of Britain and further introduction of Sharia Law. As a gay man I feel very threatened by certain aspects of Sharia Law, and that's why I fully support the efforts of the EDL.”
In the letter to the Regional Secretary, he also shared his bewilderment over how on earth he could be called a ‘Nazi’ and a “fascist,” as he was on Friday the 5th by people waving the RMT flag, for standing up with fellow Englishmen of all colours and from all walks of life against the far-right Sharia law that threatens his ability to live without fear as a gay man with equal rights.
As the left alienates more and more of their traditional support by making more and more concessions to the intolerance and hatred of the Islamists, they will find that when their Islamist allies eventually turn on them—as in the famous poem—no one will be left to speak up for them.
