I’ll bet you never heard any of this from our news-suppressing media.
Having gone miles out of their way to aid and abet the installation of shari’a-based Islamic fundamentalist regimes in Egypt and in Libya, our State Department has searched out ways to provoke them to violence.
Last summer the American embassy in Pakistan, for reasons that defy analysis, decided to hold a big, splashy, “gay pride” celebration there. Our own media chose not to report this, but the BBC did (see this BBC news article).
The event sparked riots in Islamabad—does the name of Pakistan’s capitol city give you any clue?—and moved Pakistan’s leading Islamic political party to describe the LBGT-etc. wingding as “cultural terrorism.”
To everyone but pinheads in the State Department, Islamist countries are well-known for their hostility to “gay rights.” They just don’t cotton to it. Why, then, would State aggressively rub their noses in it? Surely the word “diplomacy” does not imply a commitment to broadcast contempt for a foreign country’s core beliefs.
More recently, our ambassador to Libya was barbarously murdered by Islamic terrorists, an incident which Our Dear Leader, on “60 Minutes” this weekend, shrugged off as “a bump in the road” (see video here). What are we to make of such an asinine statement?
Suppose a Muslim country were to set up an embassy in New York and then, publicly, for all the world to see, held a special “gay-bashing event” in which embassy staff denounced homosexuals, recommended their extermination, and hanged and burned a few of them in effigy. Would we not consider that a provocation? Would we not consider it the opposite of “diplomacy”? Can you imagine Mayor Bloomberg saying, “Oh, well, diplomats will be diplomats. It’s just another bump in the road”?
Our State Department thinks Egypt and Libya, under frothing-at-the-mouth Islamist rule, will become Western-style democracies, complete with “gay rights” movements of their own, abortion mills, campus speech codes, religion that nobody but the poor old plebs believe in, NPR reruns, and high-speed rail. Feminism will blossom in Benghazi, and they’ll play “The Vagina Monologues” in Tahrir Square.
Are these people quite all there?
Our “president” snubs the traditional White House prayer breakfast but makes a point of attending a Ramadan breakfast; practically cracks his forehead on the floor, bowing to assorted Arab despots; writes off the Fort Hood terrorist massacre as “workplace violence”; proclaims to the world that the United States is “not a Christian country anymore,” but rather one of the world’s great Muslim countries; and waxes poetic about the Muslim call to prayer, which he can imitate to perfection.
At the same time, he and his party, at their national convention, bragged incessantly, “I killed Bin Laden!” as if a politician could have talked the man to death. And now we see that they’ve been strutting and boasting homosexuality throughout the Muslim world.
Talk about a mixed message.
A U.S. embassy represents America on another country’s soil. Legally, embassy grounds are U.S. territory; in that way, the embassy is America. For most of the people of Islamabad, it’s all of America that they will ever see.
They don’t like what they see. And are we positively sure we want our embassies to be part of this administration’s “Gays ‘R’ Us” campaign? Thanks to movies and TV, a lot of people in this world already think America is the land of the freak and the home of the depraved. The goings-on at our embassies—by order of the State Department—are hardly going to convince them otherwise.
Are we really and truly fighting to make the world safe for sodomy, and to spread moral anarchy from pole to pole? Is that now America’s mission in the world?
It is this regime’s stated policy to encourage and support “gay rights” everywhere, whether the host country likes it or not. They wouldn’t dream of supporting Christianity in another country, but they support “gay rights.” Does anyone remember the American people being consulted about this?

If any president ever dared to say his mission was to spread the Christian Gospel everywhere, they’d be clamoring for his head on a pole. But to spread the gospel of Gomorrah everywhere—never mind those little bumps in the road: we always get them when we run over an ambassador’s dead body—we’re all supposed to be okay with that.
Here’s where the media come in. Because they never told us this was being done, we never objected to it. Silence means consent!
It’s dangerous enough, being the evangelists for sodomy in Muslim countries. But we are also shouting from the housetops our rebellion against God and against His moral laws.
We’d better hope America doesn’t badly need His help anytime soon.
