Liberals Place Muslims Above Gays in Oppression Hierarchy:
"Last month, when Marine Le Pen refused to put on a headscarf for a meeting with Lebanon's “Grand Mufti,” a friend of mine, whom I'll call Dave, commended her for it on Facebook.
Dave, as it happens, is a Manhattan liberal who voted for Hillary Clinton, despises Donald Trump, and thinks Le Pen is a fascist.
But he's also a gay man who's very clear-eyed about the danger of Islam, especially to gay people, and who is angry at the left, both in the U.S. and Europe, for appeasing the Religion of Peace.
And so he gave Le Pen a thumbs-up for her gutsy action.
Since Dave's own friends list consists almost exclusively of other big-city liberal types, he was immediately savaged for his post on Le Pen.
One of them wrote that just because Muslim women decide to cover their hair or body doesn't mean they're oppressed, and added that Le Pen, by refusing to wear a headscarf, wasn't standing up for women but simply “trying to spread hate” towards Islam.
...Many of Dave's friends were livid at him for even daring to compliment Le Pen and criticize Islam.
...their responses made it clear that they'd fully accepted the current progressive pecking order among officially recognized oppressed groups: gays (especially affluent white gay American males such as Dave) are at the bottom of the ladder; Muslims are at the very top.
Which means that when gays criticize Islam, a decent progressive is supposed to scream “Islamophobe"; but when Muslims drop gays to their deaths off the roofs of buildings, one is expected to look away and change the topic..."
