Musician and television personality Pat Boone asks us: “Have you not seen the awful similarity between what happened in Mumbai and what’s happening right now in our cities?”
He sees the similarity. “What troubles me so deeply, and should trouble all thinking Americans, is that there is a real, unbroken line between the jihadist savagery in Mumbai and the hedonistic, irresponsible, blindly selfish goals and tactics of our homegrown sexual jihadists.”
You may be asking yourself, what the fuck you talking about, Pat? “I refer to California’s Proposition 8.”
Um, could Pat possibly mean the people who voted to deny equal rights to gays? ‘Cause those people are totally mean-spirited. “Oh, I know the homosexual “rights” demonstrations haven’t reached the same level of violence, but I’m referring to the anger, the vehemence, the total disregard for law and order and the supposed rights of their fellow citizens.”
Oh, he means the people whose civil rights got taken away are the ones who are like the Mumbai attackers. Wow, isn’t this taking advantage of a huge tragedy to propel a weird anti-gay agenda? “Hate is hate, no matter where it erupts. And by its very nature, if it’s not held in check, it will escalate into acts vile, violent and destructive.”
Is that a threat, Pat? “In America, at least the America we’ve known till now, rights are earned and won in a deliberative, legal way – at the polls. “
Oh, so the voters get to decide who gets to have rights and who doesn’t. Wait a minute, that doesn’t sound right! “Every homosexual citizen has the same, identical rights as any other American.”
Um, like the right to marry the person you love? Because… gays still don’t have that right, Pat. “Slavery was abolished, blacks and women obtained the rights to vote, and these true rights were not obtained by threats and violent demonstrations and civil disruption (though these things did occur, of course), but by due process, congressional deliberations and appropriate ratification”
And a Civil War, but no biggie.
OH. …Is Pat worried gays are going to start a Gay Civil War? “Are you unaware of the raging demonstrations in our streets, in front of our churches and synagogues, even spilling into these places of worship, and many of these riots turning defamatory and violent?”
Ah ha. He believes they already have. I am shocked at the media cover-up that has prevented dispatches from the Gay Civil War from reaching the news stands. Liberal media, you’ve really done it now!
America: Watch out. Sexual jihadists are right now attending terrorist training camps hosted by the Mumbia attackers in order to start the Gay Civil War!
