A simple, if indelicate, question

Amidst all the brouhaha of how awful Putin’s Russia is for not kissing gaydom on the lips, we have this charming example of selective media non-attention to our Muslim brethren.

A Seattle Muslim who tried to burn down a crowded gay nightclub, swearing that all homosexuals should be eliminated, gets nearly no coverage.

As Pamela Geller asked:

Pamela Geller is spot on: “Where are the left wing, the gay and LGBT organizations denouncing the Islamic texts that inspire such mayhem and murder of gays? Where is that fierce gay leadership condemning Muslim oppression of gays under the sharia? Where are those brave activists who rushed to condemn me when I ran an ad campaign highlighting Muslim oppression of gays under the sharia? Gay organizations in America say nothing, but loudly condemned my ad campaign highlighting Muslim oppression of gays under the sharia. Why haven’t we heard from SF City Council, the Human Rights CommissionSFHRC head Theresa Sparks, and the enemedia? They called my ads hate and issued a resolution against my organization for merely quoting Muslim political leaders, spiritual leaders and cultural voices in the Muslim community who call for the torture and death of gay people. I  was denounced by gay and transgender leaders in the US for our work to highlight the Muslim oppression of gays. The San Francisco City council issued a resolution condemning our AFDI ad campaign (the first of its kind) focusing on the vicious oppression and subjugation of gays under Islam.”

The overt political control of what we are expected to get excited about is revealed daily in our media, by what is covered and not covered. Islam = religion of peace. Putin = bad thug because anti-gay. Huh?
