GLB Hypocrisy

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on April 5, 2008


Jay Leno made a booboo – he asked actor Ryan Phillips to give his “gayest look” on national TV and the Gay Community is up in arms demanding Leno apologize. He did.

At the same time a Trans Man (female to male transsexual) is being referred to as “she” and lambasted as “damaging the GLBT’s chances of having Civil and Equal Rights by going public with being pregnant”, by members of the Gay Community. Here’s a quote that summarize the stance of some:

[I am] “caring deeply about what his act of self promotion has done to my fight for basic civil rights and the perception at large of our community.”

This comment is trans phobic.

Why? Because the the writer fears that the fact that a trans man choosing to become pregnant and going public with it, which might actually be good for other trans people, as well as people not yet aware that they are trans people, will adversely affect how the US public will see him (the Gay writer) and the Gay Community in general. It is fully comparable to a family disowning their Gay son, out of fear of what their neighbors and neighbors’ neighbors will be thinking of THEM. We all say that is homophobic. This Gay Man is doing the same with Thomas Beattie, and it is connected to Thomas being a trans man, pregnant and publicizing it. If he wasn’t there would be no story and no reason for the Gay man in question to fear that he will be perceived adversely by the general Public.

The hypocrisy of Minorities is sad.

Why are members of the GLB Community allowed to be this blatantly trans phobic while at the same time demanding that non-GLB’s apologize for perceived offenses against Gays?

I as a Trans Man have absolutely no difficulty seeing how “give your gayest look…” is offensive to Gays. However Gays apparently have great difficulties seeing that referring to a man as “she” is derogatory, offensive, and in this case trans phobic.

The hypocrisy of the Radical Far Left

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on September 2, 2007


From an earlier post:

They [the radical left] like to make comparisons to South Africa and the Apartheid Regime. I was part of the movement against Apartheid – and let me tell you, not once did I hear anyone call for the obliteration of the white population of South Africa or a call to eradicate South Africa as a State – not once. But I do hear those cries from the Radical Far Left in regards to Jews and Israel.

I have some additional thoughts here.

Just as I did not “hear anyone call for the obliteration of the white population of South Africa or a call to eradicate South Africa as a State – not once…,” nor did I hear anyone suggest that South Africa be usurped by Namibia or Zimbabwe, or that the white population be deported out of Africa all together.

They claim it’s the same, but they are not willing to suggest the same solution. That’s the hypocrisy of the Radical Left on the issue of Israel.

Sanctimonius Bullshit Part 2

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 4, 2007


After I commented on Sanctimonious Bullshit in response to the guy who wrote the original quote, I decided that my response was deserving of a Blog Entry all of its own.

“Thanks for the comment. You made some very interesting assumptions. First of all, I’m not “an adherent of one of the most murderous religions on earth.” No more than I am an adherent for racism, just because many in this nation used to be (and many still are) racists. Do you disown your family because of past mistakes they’ve made? Could Christianity not have changed for the better over the centuries? I denounce the Crusades and other murderous acts of Christians. They were not “of God.” That’s not what Jesus taught. So, no, I won’t be saying that we can’t judge “Xtianism” by a “few bad eggs” during the past 2000 years. I will be saying, “Judge Christianity for what it is TODAY.” No different than you wanting to be judged for who you are today, not in your past.”

Did I say one word about the Crusades? No I did not. Because I am judging Xianism for what it is today – and it is still murderous. It still preaches the Global conversion of Jews, Pagans, Muslims and others, to whom it’s equal to spiritual suicide to convert to a religion not of their ancestors. Unfortunately this command to commit spiritual murder is in the Greek Scriptures, along side a whole lot of other Anti-other-religions speech.

If you believe that Jews, Muslims, Pagans, Hindus, Buddhists and all others who are not Xians should convert to Xianism, then you are an adherent of one of the most murderous religions on earth – TODAY.

I have been trashed by ordinary, non-hostile Xians for using the terms “many Xians” the same way you used many in “So here’s a religion in which many of its followers are seeking to kill Christians” – so somehow it is a generalizing term – besides during the last 6 years to date Xian soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan have killed more Muslims than Muslims have killed Xians in the last 1400 years…

I would not have objected if you had said “Radical Islamists”, but you didn’t – you generalized.

Now, what is good for the goose should be good for the gander, Nuh?

“Will you deny that a growing number of Islamics are extremists who wish to rid this planet of anyone who is not Islamic?”

Actually, I would – I would say that is a fear filled and Islamophobic hyperbole. Why, because the number of Radical Islamists during the last 1400 years have been constant, just as it has been constant when it comes to Radical Xianists. What have changed though is the way we communicate in the World, both Virtually and in 3-D. Before 9/11 the US didn’t bother to monitor the Arab World – but nothing have changed since 9/11 – just the way people get around.

Saying that people are not “of G-d” because they misbehave when it comes to your own religion and not extending the same “excuse” to the “Muslims” that do not represent Islam is sanctimonious.

I will comment more, but now I have to relinquish the computer to my wife -)

next installment:

By the way, how many radicals of 300 million does it take to create a dangerous situation?

Isn’t this just another way of spreading the Islamophobic hyperbole, I think it is – I could counter with saying that a radical fraction of 2 billion Xians is as dangerous – and name those too – the people adhering to the message of the book series “Left Behind”, which among other things teach children to kill non-believers, the members of the American Family Association, and other more or less militant, aggressive Xian Fundamentalist “ministries”. Now, those are Radical Xianists, and by all means let’s not forget the White Supremacist Groups, that also profess to be Xians, and the groups that blow up abortion clinics, murder doctors and nurses that are willing to perform abortions…good Xian kids who go gay-bashing as a weekend pass time – or for that matter people who think like Ann Coulter “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.”

“Third, I have read about judging, AND I pray about it. You had no problem quoting Jesus in Matthew 7:1, but you didn’t finish the quote:

“For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged.”

Jesus qualifies our judging. He says that the way we judge others is the way he’s going to judge us.”

Now if we just read it – and not attribute the judging to Yeshu ben Miriam – what do we get? Right – as you judge others you will be judged by them – what goes around comes around – what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

If I’m judged according to my blog statement, I don’t think I have much concern. Praying for a religion that has a growing radical element is NOT judging them.

But you are judging them – by deeming that they need your prayers – how the h-ll do you know that? You don’t. You assume they do, judged by your standards, and your ideas of what Prayer is – of which you can know nothing, neither of us do. The very idea that other people are in need of your prayers is arrogant and presumptious.

It’s praying for them. My prayer for Islamics is that they WILL be a peaceful religion and stop those within their movement who seek to radicalize it.

Well, you sure aren’t helping things by putting out Blog entries that only serve to heat things up, rather than cool them down, through Islamophobic hyperbole and generalizations. On the contrary, you are only adding to ideas like that of Ann Coulter.

By the way, that’s the same prayer I often lift up for Christianity. I wouldn’t call that hypocrisy. I’d call it consistency.

That you can do, but leave the rest of the world alone. Really.

Condemning Antisemitism, applauding Islamophobia…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 2, 2007


Islamophobia – unreasonable or completely justified?

Islamophobia is a fear or prejudice towards Muslims and the religion of Islam.

However, this fear or prejudice is completely and certainly justified.[…]

In Germany, the state of Baden-Württemberg openly discriminates against Muslim immigrants, making Muslims, and only Muslims, take a test of loyalty – answering questions about attitudes to Homosexuality, Dress sense, Domestic violence and religious issues. This has been referred to as Islamophobic and racist.

But this is necessary for this group and in fact should be similarly done in this country. When French Muslims try to burn half of Paris, when British-born Muslims bomb their own subways, when Spanish Muslims destroy their own railways, and NO OTHER GROUP or NATIONALITY does likewise, is it not only prudent but absolutely essential that we question Muslims on loyalty? As to domestic violence, is it not a requirement of their religion to murder their wives or daughters if there has been a perceived ding against their Honor? Aren’t most complaints of servant abuse against Muslim masters who have no respect or regard for women?

Now, compare that to this Blog entry – which the guy used to comment on my Page on Benjamin Freedman’s 1961 Speech: 13 things to blame on the Jews in which he derides people, organizations, Arabs and others for blaming things on the Jews that they are not responsible for.

I’d call this a serious case of hypocrisy and double standard.

This guy doesn’t realize that his reasoning around Muslims is exactly the same as the reasoning Antisemites start out with, BEFORE they start making up things to blame on the Jews.

One part of this Entry is especially chilling and enlightening:

“When French Muslims try to burn half of Paris, when British-born Muslims bomb their own subways, when Spanish Muslims destroy their own railways, and NO OTHER GROUP or NATIONALITY does likewise, is it not only prudent but absolutely essential that we question Muslims on loyalty? – compare to the reasoning in France before and during the Dreyfus-Affair:

Anti-Semitism was pervasive in France during the 1890s. With the formal inception of the French Third Republic in 1871, in the 1880s nationalist politicians such as Georges Boulanger, Edouard Drumont (founder of the Antisemitic League of France) and Paul Déroulède (founder of Ligue des Patriotes) sought to capitalize on the new fervor for a unified Catholic France. French Jews were described by the author George L. Mosse as a “nation within a nation

One of the most common and prevalent accusations against Jews in both Europe and the US, over the time of history, is that of “Dual Loyalty”:

“A classic example of political dual loyalty is a person who is a dual citizen or who is an immigrant living in one country, although the term is sometimes used in connection with people that have religious, cultural or political ties to a political interest other than the country of their primary residence. As opposed to ethical dual loyalty, which is often a self-described situation, political dual loyalty typically appears as an attack or a pejorative accusation designed to target and discredit a particular person or group, and to call into question the loyalty of that group to the country where they reside. As such, the accusation of “dual loyalty” is often used or co-opted by racist or xenophobic groups within a country, regardless of the original intent of the accusation.

What we have here is a guy who is presumably pointing to Antisemitic conspiracy theories and condemning them while at the same time suggesting that Muslims (note the generalization…) are guilty of something traditionally being pinned on the Jews…

Bernie – I am impressed at how you mange to put both your feet in your mouth while having your head up your own ass so far that you must be eating yesterday’s lunch.

Sweaty Feet with a side order of Yesterday’s Lunch.

Bon Appetite!

Sanctimonious Bullshit

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 29, 2007


Prayer For Muslims

This morning, as I was listening to my local Christian radio station, they were announcing the coming of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month. The Christian community was being encouraged to pray for the Muslim people during this time.

That struck me as being very interesting. I understand that many people believe Islam to be a religion of peace, but I do not agree. I think most Muslims want to live at peace with the world, but the growing radical movement wants the destruction of all other religious groups. So here’s a religion in which many of its followers are seeking to kill Christians, but Christians are being asked to pray for them.

Sounds like the upside-down kingdom Christ talked about while on earth. Let’s pray hard!

“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:44)!


*lol*What a load of sanctimonious bullshit! Coming from an adherent of one of the most murderous religions on earth. Next he will be saying that we cannot judge Xtianism by a “few bad eggs” during the last 2000 years – yet that is exactly what he is doing with Islam.He is judging an entire religion and all its adherents as “not peaceful” on account of a fraction of 300 million Muslims…How about reading about not judging instead of praying?“Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. ”
