They've Cracked The Code

Wow, Greg Gutfeld is a genius. He announced that he wants to open a gay bar next to the planned Ground Zero Mosque that is especially Muslim-friendly (he's having a contest to name it; right now, the leading candidates seem to be "Turban Cowboy," "Suspicious Packages," "Ji-Hot" or "Ji-Hunk," and "Infidel-icious").

Well, it took some prodding, but Gutfeld finally managed to get the Cordoba House people to respond to his proposal:

You're free to open whatever you like. If you won't consider the sensibilities of Muslims, you're not going to build dialog

Look at that answer. "Build dialog." They've cracked the code. They've learned how to speak like the liberals.

Now, one would think that if the mosque backers were really interested in "building dialogue," they'd have taken the opportunity to talk with those who opposed their plans to build their mosque and community center just around the corner from Ground Zero. But no, they just frittered that opportunity away, and instead called them hateful bigots and tried to claim they were the victims of illegal discrimination and harassment.

But that's what reasonable, honest people would do. Instead, in this case, you're mistaken. You have to understand what "dialogue" means in this context.

One side says "you're a hateful bigot," and you say "I'm sorry. How can I make things right?"

"You can give me this and this and this, for starters."

"Absolutely. And what else can I do to show how sincerely sorry I am?"

"You can stop doing this and this and this, and we'll consider forgiving you."

That's "dialog." Not a frank exchange of ideas, but an adaptation of the mentality Ronald Reagan ascribed to the Soviet Union when it came to arms negotiations: "what's ours is ours; what's yours is negotiable."

Which is entirely appropriate, as we're pretty much talking about the spiritual successors to the Soviet Union -- one in the case of advancing the socialist cause, the other in achieving global domination in the name of their monstrous ideology.

The mosque backers had a chance to have an honest "dialogue" with the people who oppose their plans. They could have chosen to listen to those who find the move grossly offensive and insensitive, to engage them in a discussion and see if they could resolve the tensions beforehand. But they chose not to.

I've been to a gay bar exactly once in my life, and that was an accident. But if Gutfeld pulls this off, and I ever get to New York City, I just might have to check out "You Mecca Me Hot."

For one thing, I bet the decor will be stunning...

simkeith:

How long will it be before one of those "moderate Muslims" issues a fatwa on Greg Gutfeld for "insulting Islam"? This "gay Zionist" has guts but really needs to watch his backside.

For the record, I hope he goes ahead and builds the bar complete with middle east theme.

Actually, based on the "negotiations" the terrorists are having with Israel, they have been dealing this way from the beginning. Actually, they would say, "What is ours is ours, what we talked about at the last meeting is also ours, what we have not yet mentioned is negotiable".

Seems awful judgmental of those Muslims. Don't they believe in practicing tolerance of others. Or is it just that others have to tolerate them?
I can see where they can easily fit in with liberals.

The property on the other side of the mosque should be converted into a restaurant that specializes in all manner of pork, ham, bacon and sausage dishes.

Hell, I'd go see it. If I ever got to New York - which is rather improbable, since I've got no need to go on business and no desire to go just to see big buildings and lots of people crammed into a little area. If I wanted that, I could just gaze at the inside of a can of sardines for a while.

But if they ever come on line and offer, say, gift cards - I'm buying one for my brother. (Who's straight, lives across the country from NY, but appreciates a good joke.)

galoob:

Gutfield is trolling for attention and ratings, good luck to him if he can get the money for the liquor license and the premises.

I was in NYC over the weekend, I heard a radio ad from Republican candidate for governor Carl Palladino.

He said that he would take the mosque by eminent domain.

Now I can't think of anything less conservative than that, if by conservative you mean limited government.

Palladino promises to use the power of the state to confiscate property because he does not like the religion of the property owners.

WTF?

You're right, galoob, that is offensive.

I trust you were equally offended by Obama when he told Joe The Plumber that "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

In that context, he was referring to the government spreading people's wealth around for them, through taxation.

And were you with those of us who were furious at the Kelo decision?

tyree:

Galoob,
The liberal progressive Democrats in MA passed a law requiring a special election if a Senate seat was vacated, because at the time they had a Republican governor who might get an opportunity to fill John Kerry's seat. When Edward Kennedy died, their own law was somehow not suitable for them.
Now you object to a Republican proposing using the same tactic against the "Religion of Peace".

Of course.

galoob:

JT, of course I did not like the Kelo decision.

As to your allusion to taxes being some comparable confiscatory outrage to Kelo or grabbing Muslim property a la Kristallnacht, I have no idea in what context Obama was speaking. We pay taxes for a lot of reasons, including to keep disabled veterans, old people and the retarded from starving. Isn't that "spreading the wealth around?" Maybe he was talking about flat wages when profits are climbing, I dunno.

That one got me too. Did they consider the sensibilities of the families of nearly 3,000 people - or the rest of the American population for that matter?

I didn't think so.
