In response to the ground zero Mosque Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld is building a gay bar next door for gay Muslims, This has to stop

Mosque Planned Near Ground Zero

The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations can run bus ads all over the country that opposes radical Islamic influence in the United States

Okay we should put all this too a halt and put an end to what has become a joke: Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld announced on his blog the Daily Gut that he has aims to open a Ground Zero–area gay bar catering to Muslim men in the space next to the proposed mosque. “As you know, the Muslim faith doesn't look kindly upon homosexuality, which is why he's building this bar.

With typical Republican BS he says it is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world,” the Red Eye host wrote “that after all, the belief driving them to open up their center near Ground Zero, is no different than mine.” Ahem. Just imagine that will you! We have to stop this crap. The stuff I have been hearing of late is getting worse and worse.

Gutfeld insists, multiple times, that he is “dead serious on this one,” and announces that he has “spoken to a number of investors” about the project. (For what it’s worth, Red Eye’s Andy Levy corroborates Gutfeld’s earnestness.) Reactions to the proposal have been mixed. Mediaite’s Jon Bershad, for instance, characterized the idea as “brilliant,” explaining, “just because I support Muslim Americans in their fight against anti-Islam prejudice, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get a few dings for their religion’s own prejudice against homosexuals.”

The conservative Hot Air blog, itself against the construction of the Ground Zero mosque, the gay bar is, metaphorically, a mosque equivalent. According to the site, both the bar and the cultural center “needlessly [inflame] cultural tensions in the ostensible service of liberal values” and both “celebrate tolerance regardless of the sensitivities of the surrounding area.” In any event, the stunt will certainly put Gutfeld on the map, if not, necessarily, his Muslim gay bar. Fox News Host Announces Plans for Muslim Gay Bar Next to Ground Zero Mosque

I must admit it is a brilliant idea but how the hell can they say a gay bar and a mosque are equivalent? I have said too many times and for too many years that like it or not this is a war on Islam that is being forced on us from the extremists in the Republican party and the Muslim extremists. The anti Muslim anti Mosque movement is spreading throughout the United States and it is the tea partiers doing it.Far from ground zero, opponents fight new mosques - Yahoo! News

This saber rattling and fear mongering by Republicans in hopes of winning elections in November are out right lies, sick and dangerous to the country. We are screwed if common sensed Democrats to not come out to vote. The fanaticism is frigging outrageous and crazy! What the hell is in Texas water anyway? I heard Texas Representatives Louie Gohmart and Debbie Riddle talking about this fear crap I never heard before.

Texas Representatives Louie Gohmart and Debbie Riddle have created a new weapon of fear mongering called terror babies! They admit they have no evidence of course but just want to promote fear. They say it is happening and the Obama Government is ignoring the fact that terrorists are crossing our border to have anchor babies that will grow up to kill us with dirty bombs. WTF? This has to stop!

Those right wing fear mongers really piss me off. The guy wanting to build it was Bush's representative and he is great. There is already one near by. There are 2 churches, a brothel, and bars closer than that center. I am so sick of this screaming BS just to bring down Obama and get those scum in to finish us off. This has to stop, mature up!

If memory serves correct zoning laws prevent bars from being built right near a churchs.
And as I point out in my latest post this is just another rethuglican distraction.

There was a time when there weren't zoning laws and after hearing all the screwed up businesses there they still sound pretty lax. Like you it pisses me off that the right will scream loud and often as usual to create and issue and division to use in their favor.

Maybe someone should build a "Museum of Unbiased Ethical Journalism" next door to FOX.

Sounds good to me Dave, there idiocy knows no bounds.

If anyone could run a gay bar like a well oiled machine, it would definitely be Republicans.

I can see name up in lights, "Ye Old Log Cabin".

Perhaps the Republicans could launch a franchise of gay bars and put one near every center for worship that speaks out against homosexuality. There's that bigoted Greek Church down on Ground Zero, that is just calling out for Homosexual Republicans to open a bar there out of spite.

Wease you know it really would be a riot we should goad him into making good on the threat!
