Candlelight vigils & Psychobabble: “homophobia cannot be fought with Islamophobia”

One is as fake as the other. And the kumbaya sucks.

The return of the deep thinkers:

Quran Recited During Toronto Vigil for Slaughtered Orlando Gays

The stupid is rich among these people:

Here’s how it went down:

At a vigil, a woman recited the Surah al Fatihah from the Quran
 Premier Kathleen Wynne speaketh:

“What we know is that homophobia cannot be fought with Islamophobia,” Wynne said.

“What happened in Orlando happened to all of us, whatever the motive behind the shooting, the suspected gunman does not speak for his religion.”

Mayor John Tory: “This kind of hate-filled act has no place in the world. Love can conquer all,”– “It (the massacre) must not be placed at the hands of any particular faith or any particular group. This represents no one, this represents no set of values, this represents no faith.”

These dimbulbs will get us all killed.

Scaramouche has their number:

To recap their clueless message: “There’s no jihad/ Islamic supremacism to see here, folks. Y’all best move along now, ‘kay?” (FYI and BTW, the vigil was held at the “Barbara Hall Park.” Hall, as you may recall, used to head up Ontario’s deranged “human rights” commission, and, in her capacity as chief commissar/champion of victim groups and their special status, was far more concerned about Mark Steyn’s “Islamophobia” than she was about preserving free speech, the linchpin of a free society. Holding a vigil for gays massacred by a jihadi in a park named for Babs is thus risible in an especially grim way.)

Why is the Left so intent on ignoring the jihad inherent in Mateen’s bloodbath? Why are they blaming it on–what else?–“guns”? Robert Spencer nails it with this:

The Left has chosen to protect Islam at all costs, even at the expense of its other victim groups.

In other words, Islam trumps gays (except, of course, if you’re Trump). (Not that Trump’s call for a “temporary ban” on letting Muslims into the U.S. is the answer. As the example of Omar Mateen, a jihadi who was born in New York City, demonstrates, the bad guys are already here.)

’50 perverts killed in bar’: Homophobic headline on Turkish newspaper website with strong ties to country’s President Erdogan
  • Yeni Akit is a right-wing Turkish paper which has supported Al-Qaeda
  • It is known for its hate speech against LGBT groups, Jews and Christians
  • Also has strong ties with President Erdogan and his party, the AKP
  • Broke news of Orlando attack with headline: ‘Death toll rises to 50 in bar where perverted homosexuals go!’

A Turkish newspaper with links to the country’s President has published a homophobic headline calling those who died in the Orlando mass shooting ‘perverts’ and ‘deviants’.

Yeni Akit, a right-wing newspaper which has supported the likes of Al-Qaeda in the past, broke news of the attack with the headline: ‘Death toll rises to 50 in bar where perverted homosexuals go!’

The headline has caused a backlash online, where it has been suggested that the exclamation mark indicates that the paper is celebrating the attack, rather than condemning it.

Turkish newspaper Yeni Akit, which has strong ties to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his party, broke news of the Florida attack with the headline: 'Death toll rises to 50 in bar where perverted homosexuals go!'
