Anti-Israel gays

Israel is the only country in the Middle East with gay rights. So you would think all western gays would support it, right?

Wrong. For whatever reasons, most gay public figures seem to be anti-Israel.

The reasons why are baffling, but I think they are all to do with western psychology. See why the left is anti-Israel and why the left is sympathetic to Islam. It's all about western psychology, not about the actual reality of these foreign countries.




Global Acceptance of Homosexuality survey, June 2013.
Percentage of population who say homosexuality "should be accepted by society" (for Israel and various Islamic countries): So left-wing western gays ... support the Palestinians!

Gay dhimmi Simon Hughes, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats, gushes at the GPU conference 2008, organised by the Islamist Islam Channel.
He is gay, anti-American, and also a Christian religious nutcase. (Or at least talks like one here.) "Thanks be to Allah!" he shouts. He praises Islam again and again.
Instead of calling for them to learn to tolerate gays, he says: "we want you to participate fully in this country, but not just as voters, we want you to be the leaders. We want you like my .. Muslim friends to .. be standing for parliament .. to be Cabinet Ministers .. to be the Prime Minister ... because we need you. We need you to lead our politics".
He absurdly says that equality - rather than the end of Islamism - is the key to world peace. What an idiot.
Damian Thompson calls it "A sick-making display of Lib Dem opportunism".



Judith Butler deserves some kind of award.
She is gay, and Jewish. And here is what she says about Islamic terrorists who want to liquidate all gay and Jewish people: "Understanding Hamas/Hezbollah as social movements that are progressive, that are on the left, that are part of a global left, is extremely important."

See also Judith Butler at Canary Mission.



Gay, radical left, American Jew Rebecca Pierce ("aptly_engineerd") says that because of the 2015 terrorist attack, Israel is not a haven for gays.
Yes, all that matters is what the 2015 terrorist did. What the laws are, and what the state does, do not matter at all. All that matters is what the 2015 terrorist did.




Peter Tatchell




Peter Tatchell in East London Pride 2011.
What can you say except "Good luck with that!"



Peter Tatchell in Sept 2019, reminding us he is an idiot.



Here's why I say Peter Tatchell is not all bad.
At a debate on "extremism" in Oct 2015, he challenges Anas Altikriti, Mohammed Amin, Fiyaz Mughal, Zara Huda Faris and Hamza Tzortzis to condemn sharia punishments such as death for apostasy.
He just gets evasion.


  

Glenn Greenwald




Gay leftist Glenn Greenwald, July 2011, says Hamas and Hezbollah are "devoted to protecting their citizens against the state of Israel".
He is outraged that it is illegal in the US to help Hamas and Hezbollah.



Gay leftist Glenn Greenwald, July 2011, defends Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki against the US efforts to kill him (later successful).
He says that al-Awlaki is someone "who the US government hates because he speaks effectively to the Muslim world about the violence that the U.S. commits in that part of the world, and the responsibility of Muslims and the need of Muslims to stand up to this violence. And the US hates him because this message is resonating."
Resonating with people like Greenwald, it seems.




Owen Jones

Young gay British leftist Owen Jones attacks Israel, the only Middle Eastern country with gay rights.
  

Gay leftist Owen Jones attacks Israel, Nov 2012.



Greg Gutfeld lays into an anti-American piece by Owen Jones, Aug 2012.
Jones openly admits he is a socialist.



Owen Jones was a total loony when young:
He declares on Marxism discussion group, 8 Aug 2000 (his 16th birthday) that he supports the IRA terrorist group: "I militarily support the IRA against the British State".



Owen Jones is still a total loony today:
He appears at the SF-IRA summer school in July 2015. His "anti-violence" and "anti-war" credentials are clearly bullshit.

  

Owen Jones, June 2020, promotes the lie that the dead in Iraq were killed by the Allies.
He claims that "hundreds of thousands" have died "at the hands of" the UK and US governments.
This is a lie. The insurgents killed them, not the Allies.




Sally Kohn

Gay and Jewish, Sally Kohn should be the last person on earth to criticise Israel, or defend Islam.

But what makes the West so fascinating - and what motivates much of my website - is that people like Sally Kohn exist.



Sally Kohn has a history of attacking Trump (who is pretty dumb himself) with tweets that are 10 times dumber.
Here she is on 24 Dec 2016 with a scorcher of an entry for the stupidest tweet of the year.
She thinks Jews building houses is the main thing preventing peace in Israel!
Imagine her surprise if she discovers the Gaza jihad continued after the Jews left.
Imagine her surprise if she discovers there was jihad against Israel before 1967.



Gay Jew defends Islamic sharia law, 16 Aug 2016. It's not The Onion. It's real life.
She says Muslims who believe in sharia are "progressive" and should be supported!
How can anyone in 2016 be so dumb? See commentary.
She carries on digging a hole rambling about sharia. She obviously has no clue what sharia is.




Groups

"Queers for Palestine". Like Jews for Germany.

  


"Queers for Palestine" is like "Gays for Nazi Germany".
Some such cases did in fact exist.
Ernst Röhm was an early Nazi leader, and a homosexual.
Image from here.
The Nazis of course put homosexuals into death camps.
They started by killing Ernst Röhm in 1934.




"Gay Girl in Damascus"

A pro-gay, leftie westerner hates Israel, and can't stand the fact that gays are free in Israel.





American lesbians dance in hatred of Israel.
If you hate these people then please express your hatred by buying Sabra and Tribe hummus.



Israeli lesbians live in freedom in Israel.
From Tel Aviv Pride 2007.

Banned in Iran: This site is banned in Iran.

Blocked by the regressive left and Islamists on Twitter: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Where to debate? Twitter's best days are over. I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a truly great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Since 2016, Twitter is broken. It is now full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could ever be appealed. It is time to find a better place to debate. I am on Parler at markhumphrys.
