“Hate” is probably the most misused word in the English language. I used to think it was “Literally,” but I’ve literally changed my mind.
Yesterday, the pandering Hillary Clinton released a Facebook statement about the terror attack in Orlando where she said:
“This was an act of terror” [snip] “this was also an act of hate.”
She must have been super proud of this observation, because she tweeted it out:
An “act of hate?”
And what made this an “act of hate” as far as Hillary was concerned?
“The gunman attacked an LGBT nightclub during Pride Month.”
Oh! I see.
So, if I understand her, Hillary believes that had the victims of this terrorist attack been a bunch of random heterosexuals out dancing on a Saturday night, it would still be an act of terror, but it would not be an “act of hate.” Or, perhaps what made it an “act of hate” was that it happened to gays during Pride Month. Maybe if it had been May instead of June, it wouldn’t have been an “act of hate.”
For Leftists like Hillary, “Hate” has come to describe the motives of anyone who disagrees with the Gay Mafia’s political agenda.
This is why Leftists like Sally Kohn and Amanda Marcotte [in a column in Salon – sorry I don’t link to Salon] were quick to equate Christians and “right-wing conservatives” who oppose gay marriage and men in girls’ bathrooms to this Islamic terrorist who slaughtered dozens at this gay nightclub.
You see, even those who do not want men in girls’ bathrooms are committing an “act of hate.”
Hillary’s insipid statement concluded with this utterly disingenuous sentence:
This is a time to stand together and resolve to do everything we can to defend our communities and country.
If she wants us to stand together, why is she distinguishing between gay and straight? Why is she declaring that, instead of just being a run-of-the-mill act of terror, this terror attack was also an “act of hate” because the targets were gay?
That’s not standing together. Standing together is saying, it doesn’t matter who is targeted by terrorists. If you target a gay nightclub in Florida, you are targeting me. If you are targeting a Synagogue, you are targeting me. If you are targeting a Christmas party, you are targeting me. Because we are all Americans — whether gay, straight, Christian, Jewish, young, old — we are all Americans. That, Hillary, is standing together.
And of course, “standing together” Hillary-style will include vilifying the “gun lobby” and attacking law-abiding citizens who keep and bear arms so they can “defend our communities and country.”
It is clear that this Islamic terrorist hated gays. Reports that have emerged over the last 24 hours have indicated that he had a history of making threats and slurs against gay people. I have no doubt he targeted gays for this act of terror because of that.
But there is no such thing as an act of terror that is an “act of love.”
Islamic radicals hate America. That is why they seek to target us. They. Hate. Us.
But what turns their hatred of America into slaughter is adherence to Sharia.
As Andy McCarthy pointed out in National Review:
The inspiration for Muslims to brutalize and mass murder gay people does not come from ISIS. It is deeply rooted in Islamic law, affirmed by many of Islam’s most renowned scholars. This is why, wherever sharia is the law, homosexuals are persecuted and killed. See, for instance, this 2014 Washington Post report listing ten Muslim countries where homosexuality may be punished by death (Yemen, Iran, Mauritania, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates, and Iraq — notwithstanding its new, U.S.-supported constitution).
Note, again, that Omar Mateen is the American-born son of immigrants from Afghanistan, where homosexuality may also be punished by death — notwithstanding American nation-building efforts there for the last 15 years.
My opposition to the SCOTUS forcing all states to issue marriage licenses to gay couples has nothing to do with “hate.” It has to do with Liberty and the rights of states to determine their own marriage laws. By ruling the way they did, the Supreme Court paved the way for the coercion of churches to participate in gay weddings — regardless of whether they believe such weddings to be wrong. It eroded the First and Tenth Amendment to the Constitution while creating a judicial amending of the Fourteenth Amendment. In other words, I object because it was flat-out unconstitutional.
My outrage over the terrorist attack in Orlando is not greater or lesser because the victims in question were at a gay nightclub. For heaven’s sake. They are Americans whose lives were snuffed out by a barbarian. I don’t run marathons either, but I still was outraged by the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon. The act of the radical Islamic terrorist is what makes this an outrage, not the personal lives of the victims.
But for Hillary, this terror attack is only an “act of hate” because the people killed were gay.
As I have said before, if we continue importing people from cultures that are diametrically opposed to our own, incidences of violence against Jews, Christians and gays are going to increase. In fact, violence against all American citizens will increase.
Hillary Clinton does not want to curb the importation of immigrants from Muslim countries governed by the deadly and violent rule of Sharia. She seeks for Americans to bend over backwards for these migrants and “refugees” who despise our system of government, despise our country and seek to do us harm. She cringes at the concept of “assimilation” which she believes is also an “act of hate.”
I don’t know how many times we conservatives have to say that you cannot coexist with those who wish to kill you. And American citizens who happen to be gay have more to fear from radical Islam infiltrating this country than they do their fellow Americans like me. They have more to fear from Hillary Clinton’s reckless appeasement of radical Islam than they do their fellow Americans who happen to be conservative or Christian.
Which is why this insipid sentence from Hillary’s statement just rings hollow:
To the LGBT community: please know that you have millions of allies across our country. I am one of them.
She is one of them? Really? Then why not recognize that Sharia is incompatible with Liberty? Why is Hillary unwilling to recognize that Sharia law (not just “radicalized” Muslims) advocates for the murder of gays? Why is Hillary hell-bent on rolling out the welcome mat for those who wish to live in America under Sharia rather than under our Constitution?
Unlike folks like me, Sharia doesn’t believe in “live and let live.” Yet Hillary has no problem with the importation of this deadly ideology into the United States. She will set her sights on the NRA, but will give Sharia-adherent immigrants as pass all the while calling it “tolerance.” But you cannot be tolerant of those who not only refuse to “tolerate” you, but seek to kill you.
My gay friends. Hillary is not your ally. She has embraced the political advocacy of the “LGBT community” for her own selfish ends. And at the end of the day, she will choose those who hate you over your freedom to live as you choose. She will embrace those who seek to kill you without any regard for your safety and security.
Frankly, that is an act of hate.
