Huffpo,Westboro, and the Mosque

Indeed, you just can’t make it up.

Over at the Huffington Post, there is an admiring post from Nicholas Graham. The post is headlined: Westboro Church Protest Against Jews Hilariously Interrupted By Brick Stone (VIDEO). (Viewer warning: the video shown is just a tad on the obscene side.) The video shows an interviewer named “Brick Stone” (Real name? Who knows. But someone has imagination) interviewing members of the Westboro Baptist Church as they protest something or other involving Jews. Westboro Baptist, you will recall, are the charming folks who stand outside military funerals yelling that God hates “f…gts.” They hate Jews and gays, among others. Got it?

On the surface, the interview achieves Brick Stone’s objective: mocking the Westboro Baptist people who are, accurately in my book, described by the HuffPo’s Graham as “loathsome.” The video is something that obviously has Arianna’s crew chortling or they wouldn’t have posted.

But wait a minute.

Westboro Baptist, as far as the rest of us know, simply shows up and shouts offensive things about Jews and gays.

Elsewhere on the HuffoPo, back in April of last year, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf made an appearance. The Imam, you will recall, is the driving force behind the Ground Zero Mosque. In his article praising Sharia Law, among other things, the Imam said that:

Islamic law is about God’s law, and it is not that far from what we read in the Declaration of Independence about “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.”

Really? Sharia and the Declaration philosophical soul mates, eh? Nonie Darwish, the Director of Former Muslims United, has posted a piece explaining exactly what Sharia Law entails. Sharia, she the Cairo-born ex-Muslim says, mandates that “Homosexuality is punishable by death.” And the Imam seems to have trouble opposing Hamas, the lovely people who want to wipe Israel — homeland of the Jews — off the map.

So let’s see. What do we have here?

The HuffPo’s Nicholas Graham finds Brick Stone’s mocking interview with the Westboro Baptist people hilarious. Westboro’s Jewish and gay policy is to yell names. Meanwhile, Imam Rauf graces the pages of the HuffPo advocating Sharia law — which Ms. Darwish pointedly says includes executing gays. And, of course, there is that Hamas thing.

Will Brick Stone have the cojones to show up outside the Mosque site and mock its supporters about executing gays? Will Nicholas Graham tee off on the Imam and his Hamas problem?

What do you think? 

A tour through the liberal mindset is always interesting.
