Republicans, Clinton and Hezbollah Agree On Gay Hatred

It's funny when the mask of bigotry drops off of various parties' faces and they look so different underneath. In the case of anti-gay bigotry, homophobia has united Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders to oppose a simple gay pride parade in Jerusalem; has united "liberals" and "conservatives" in legislatures all over America to pass anti-gay laws; and now, we find the leaders of various terrorist organizations in the Middle East mouthing the Bush administration doctrine on why gays in the military are a bad idea.

The leader, Abu Oudai, chief rocket coordinator for the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the West Bank, said Hizbullah's "tremendous victory" has emboldened his group and other Palestinian terror organizations to immediately coordinate violence against Israel and to focus their "resistance" on rocket attacks.

"If we do (what Hizbullah accomplished), this Israeli army full of gay soldiers and full of corruption and with old-fashioned war methods can be defeated also in Palestine."

This Libertarian will be doing his utmost to condemn the anti-gay forces in the Republican party with their own rhetoric for "allying with the terrorists" and "covering for the terrorists" and "mouthing the terrorist line in America, damaging our freedoms" the next time a discussion about gays in the military pops up. And when Democrats wax rhapsodic over Bill Clinton -- he of DOMA and Don't Ask, Don't Tell, why not ask why he allied himself with the Republicans and the terrorists on this important issue? I suggest that all liberty-lovers consider a similar strategy.
