Sometimes, as the organisers of the original London gay pride demonstrations in 1972 and those back in 1960’s New York subjected to aggressive policing discovered, there is a time for taking to the streets to protest an injustice or a danger. Both the first London Gay Pride and the Stonewall Riots were the result of people wanting acceptance and tolerance for a sexual orientation that they didn’t choose to have and kicking out at those who thought they should be oppressed, dead or both.
It’s right that we remember those brave people who stood up and said ‘no’ to a hostile society but it’s also correct that we point out the dangerous hypocrisy of the modern LGB and T Left. The current incarnation of the LGB and T Left is loud, shrill and sometimes violent when it comes to squeezing out and ostracising gay conservatives or gay patriots, but seems to have a worryingly large blind spot and presents us with deafening silence when it comes to hatred of gays that has an Islamic flavour.
A good example of this is the case of the Iranian gay-hate preacher who has inexplicably been allowed to visit the United Kingdom and call for gays to be killed. Where are the likes of Stonewall or Tatchell or any of the other high profile groups and individuals when it comes to those Muslims who don’t just express a negative opinion about the LGB and T lifestyles, but who incite violence? The answer is these Leftist LGB and T activists are nowhere to be seen and hardly ever heard.
The conservative online magazine Brietbart London is carrying the very worrying story of an appearance by an Iranian backed Islamic hate preacher who is being put on by an Iranian group in London. This particular Islamic savage has called for gays to be ‘beheaded, burned and crushed’ yet there seems to be very little fuss made about this savage by the Leftists who now run most of Britain’s LGB and T organisations. Surely those who call for the deaths of LGB and T people should be the first to be protested? But we will probably hear nothing from these often well remunerated ‘community leaders’ of the LGB and T communities. I doubt there will be any protests by angry gays at this centre and neither do I expect them to be taking to the airwaves or the web to say ‘we are not to be killed’.
Here’s part of the Brietbart story on the latest outrageous Islamic savage to ply his stinking trade in the UK.
A Islamic preacher who has referred to non-Muslims as “kuffar” and preached on how to kill homosexuals is due to deliver a set of nightly lectures at an Iranian government-backed organisation in London, Breitbart London can reveal.
Shaykh Hamza Sodagar – who gained notoriety earlier this year for his lecture on “one of five” ways to kill homosexuals – is due to speak at the Islamic Republic of Iran School in north-west London between October 4th – 12th.
“If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above”.
Without a shadow of a doubt this Islamic savage has a penchant for inciting violence. We should also not doubt that this savage has many other Islamic savages who will be quite prepared to act on Sodagar’s words. Therefore Sodagar is someone who is worth protesting whether in person or with words, because he and those like him are a threat. But, there is no protest of any substance about Sodagar’s presence in the UK or his views from the ‘great and the good’ of the UK LGB and T organisations. They are quick enough to whine that there are too few Trans characters in a film or to ban groups like UKIP from marching at London Pride, which are minor matters, but are totally silent when it comes to actual death threats from Islamic savages.
This is dangerous hypocrisy of the highest order. LGB and T groups should be protesting those who want to kill them, should be kicking up a fuss about the likes of Sodagar who incite violence, but they don’t. They seem to be far more comfortable protesting about inconsequential stuff such as bakers who refuse to bake cakes for gay weddings, or which pronoun to use for a particular trans person. LGB and T groups and high profile individuals are nowhere to be seen in situations where they should be protesting such as decrying the presence of this murderous savage Sodgar.
It’s my belief that Britain’s LGB and T organisations are sinking into a cess pit of political hubris and foolishness and are no longer fit to represent or defend even the basic right to life for LGB and T Britons. Such groups have ceased to be relevant to today’s problems and should be seen as part of the Leftist current of political thinking that has gone a long way to help create such problems.
Too many of Britain’s LGB and T people are not politically engaged, and of course that is their right to be if that’s their decision, but it’s criminal to ignore those who want you dead. A great number of Britain’s LGB and T organisations have decided to commit the crime of ignoring Islamic gay hate and that is something that sorely needs to change and change very soon. Britain’s LGB and T people may quite quickly find that they will end up paying the price for the ignorance of the threat of Islam being shown by British LGB and T groups.

Leftist bigotry against UKIP. It’s a shame these groups and individuals cannot reach the same levels of anger when it comes to Muslim’s often murderous attitude to LGB and T people.
