A nation gone mad
I’m still sitting here shaking my head as I watch and listen to the left react to the Orlando massacre.
If you simply read their screeds you’d have concluded by now that it was the work of a right-wing Christian (or just a plain old “toxic male”) with an AR-15 instead of a Sig wielding Muslim who had pledged allegiance to ISIS in a 911 call prior to the massacre and was a registered Democrat.
In fact, the AR-15 meme has taken on a life of its own with such luminaries of the left as lyin’ Michael Moore and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and some wimpy NYT metrosexual calling for its ban. On what grounds one wonders, but hey, they’re leftists – fantasy is their business if it helps them move their agenda one inch further to fruition. Ignore the facts, full speed ahead. Moore even made up stuff about the round(s) the AR-15 fires claiming they are banned by the Geneva Conventions. Uh, no. Not even close. Pure fiction.
Sally Kohn, a CNN contributor, went on a bigoted anti-Christian rant that attempted, in however a tortured manner, to make a moral equivalence between Christian disapproval of homosexuality and Islam’s death sentence for homosexuals.
Milo Yiannopoulos, a right-wing gay activist, explains the difference for those who lack the ability to discern it:
There are eleven Muslim countries in which I could be killed for being a homosexual. The state penalty is death. One hundred million people live in country where the penalty for homosexuality is death. This is not radical Islam. This is mainstream Muslim society.
And this isn’t some hazy made-up claim like Michael Moore’s, it’s their law. Guess who is taking political donations from those countries?
Instead of facing the truth of Orlando, the left, as usual, has chosen to divert and pretend the problem is on the right. That way, their agenda remains viable and they don’t have to confront nasty little ideological conflicts they’re trying so damn hard to avoid:
“Look what’s happening in Sweden. Look what’s happening anywhere in Germany, anywhere there are large influxes of a Muslim population. Things don’t end well for women and gays. The left has got to make a decision. Either they want female emancipation and it wants gay rights or it wants Islam. It’s got to pick.”
But, at this point, it refuses to do so. It is more afraid of being called Islamaphobic than it is of condemning a religion/ideology that throws gays off of buildings, burns them or hangs them and treats women as chattel.
That’s what the Sally Kohns, Michael Moores and Bill Ayers of the left should be doing. Instead they’re after a weapon that wasn’t even used in the massacre and a Constitutional amendment that gives us the freedom to defend ourselves.
