So a fundamentalist Muslim kills 50 gay people with a gun (edit), five months before the most divisive election in American history in a swing state that takes two months to figure out who won their electoral votes. This should end well.
If you come to America from a country where homosexuality is against the law, then you are not allowed here unless you publicly denounce it and show your support for the right to be who you are. That’s Turtleboy’s basic take from the awful terrorist attack in Orlando last night, in which at least 50 people were murdered in cold blood by a radical Muslim extremist who couldn’t get over the fact that the saw two gay dudes kissing.
This had nothing to do with religion. Right.
First let me say that I realize he is an American citizen. We can’t do much about American citizens who feel this way. However, we should be trying to make sure that people who come into this country don’t feel the same way as him. Agreed? Good.
I’m not here to bash on Islam. I know there are millions of Muslims who will condemn this act of terror, and I know that most Muslims are regular people who just wanna go about their lives and are embarrassed by this. However, we can control who is and who isn’t allowed within our borders (at least we should be able to). Here is a link to a map of all the countries in the world where homosexuality is illegal. The countries in the darkest red allow the death penalty for homosexuals. Regular red is life in prison, which is basically the same thing. Orange allows imprisonment for getting caught in the act of being gay. As you can see, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Sudan, and most of Syria allow the death penalty. Pakistan, Thailand, Bangladesh, and Tanzania allow life in prison. India, some of the Stans, and a whole bunch of countries in Africa allow imprisonment:
New rule: you cannot come here from a country where it’s illegal to be gay, unless you publicly denounce the country you came from. The same people who have been shitting on Charlie Baker and Donald Trump for being hesitant about opening the doors for Syrian refugees are the same people who claim to care about gay rights. Newsflash – the people you are opening your arms to are coming from a country where you get killed if you’re gay. Not saying all Syrians feel this way. Just saying that at the very least the left should be loudly saying that any Syrian who has a problem with homosexuality cannot come to America.
You get to live in the greatest country on earth, and as a price for that you have to put up with the fact that dudes kiss dudes here. Get over it. If you don’t have it in you to admit that you come from a backwards country where people are living in the 12th century, then you don’t get the privilege of living in the greatest country on earth.
The reaction from the left has been insanely idiotic. And this is coming from a guy who voted for Obama twice. They’re saying that Christianity is just as dangerous for gay people, which is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Hardcore Christians are not down with homosexuality. But there’s a huge difference between not wanting to bake a gay wedding cake and throwing someone off a fucking building for being who they are.
And of course they’re blaming guns. Turtleboy is a reasonable guy who favors reasonable gun control. But the gun didn’t plant the idea in his head that you must die if you’re gay. That’s the reason 50 human beings are dead right now.
I will say this thought about guns – people who are being watched by the FBI can’t buy them. That should be a common sense belief that any rational person would agree with. Apparently the terrorist was being watched by the FBI, was an American citizen, and still bought the gun legally. That simply cannot happen.
Gonna end this rant by linking this article from Dianne Williamson, which we’ve linked several times before. It was in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack in France, in which employees of the controversial magazine were murdered because they drew a cartoon making fun of the prophet Mohammad. It’s something that every single American should condemn, with NO JUSTIFICATION whatsoever. No ifs, buts, or coconuts. It’s wrong. End of story. Instead when Dianne interviewed a leader at the Worcester Islamic Center, this is what happened:
Wednesday, Tahir Ali of the Worcester Islamic Center said his “knee-jerk reaction” is “to condemn the killing of innocent lives.” But when asked if Charlie Hebdo bears some responsibility for the slaughter, his answer was indicative of the intolerance expressed even by Muslim non-extremists.
“Yes, of course,” he said. “Look at the history of the (magazine). It has been warned by officials not to (publish the cartoons) because it is provoking the sentiments of the Muslim community. There are 1.3 billion Muslims in the world. To them, the Prophet Muhammad is the one they love the most … Some of them are going to be angry enough to carry out these acts of aggression. Journalism is supposed to be a very responsible profession.”
People like Tahir Ali cannot live in America. We gladly welcome peaceful Muslims who wish to assimilate into our culture. And part of that culture is the acceptance of freedom. Freedom to say what you want and sleep with consenting adults of your choice. If you think that it is EVER the fault of cartoonists or gay people for “provoking the sentiments of the Muslim community,” then you’re not welcome here. Because America is the land of the free. We have a right to draw cartoons, make out with whoever we want, and speak our minds freely. Don’t like it? Cool Go to a country where tolerance is frowned upon. Like Saudi Arabia or Syria.
