In response to the recent approval of an Islamic center near 2 blocks away, in fact the World Trade Center, Fox News host Greg Gutfeld made headlines by suggesting that he was planning to open an "Islam-friendly gay bar" near the new Mosque. The host of Red Eye sarcastically wrote, "As you know, the Muslim faith doesn't look kindly upon homosexuality, which is why I'm building this bar. It is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world.
No, this is not a joke. In fact, it is instead one of the most brilliant pieces of provocations in recent years. To make matters worse better?
Fag Head. And be realistic: This is exactly the type of name Greg would use. The Gutter.
To best express my sincere desire for dialogue, the bar will be situated next to the mosque Park51, in an available commercial space. It is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world. The same people who signed off on a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero will have fits over drinking and dancing. Whoever said anything about that?
It is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world. The goal, however, is not simply to open a typical gay bar, but one friendly to men of Islamic faith. An entire floor, for example, will feature non-alcoholic drinks, since booze is forbidden by the faith.
Adding fuel to the controversy over the proposed Ground Zero mosque, mischievous Fox News host Greg Gutfeld has declared his own plan to build a gay bar catering to Muslims next to the Islamic center. Gutfeld claims he's opening the night spot to "reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world," and hopes the mosque's supporters will show the same tolerance toward his bar that they've demanded from their critics, who say the mosque's location is insensitive to victims of the attacks. Crass publicity stunt — or is Gutfeld making a legitimate point?
This is a rush transcript from "Glenn Beck," August 10, This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated. There's another building that has been proposed to be built next to the World Trade Center site.
I am hoping that at least one person will attempt to explain why we should support the mosque near Ground Zero, but not the gay bar next to the mosque near Ground Zero. I would find that very entertaining. The law might not take that into account, but as ordinary human beings surely we can.
Video below the fold. As we noted in this morning's Open ThreadGreg Gutfeld is planning on building the first gay bar catered to Muslim men next to the impending "Ground Zero Mosque. Gutfeld wrote at his blogthe Daily Gut, that he has "already spoken to a number of investors, who have pledged their support in this bipartisan bid for understanding and tolerance.
Fox News' Red Eye host this week announced he wants to open a gay bar near the proposed Islamic Center in downtown Manhattan, the one that has so many right-wingers unhinged and inspired one Andrew Breitbart blogger this week to accuse New York City's Jewish mayor of acting like a Nazi collaborator because he supports the Islamic Center. But of course the p. The gay bar shtick only works if Gutfeld can get Muslim leaders to take the bait and go off on tangents about how a gay bar placed near the Islamic Center is offensive and that Gutfeld must move the location!
