What? Gays should have RIGHTS? Since WHEN!?

Firedoglake's TRex offers the setup:

Late Nite FDL: The Dubious Joys of Right-Wing Infantilism

One of the most disingenuous and, well, insulting tacks on the part of Righty pundits of late has been their sudden concern to the rights of gay Iranians.

And, right on cue, Blogging Tory "Fred" strides briskly into the whirring blades:

Where's the leftist outrage at Ahmadinejad????

You'd think that his comments on gays would have infuriated the left....

If the Blogging Tories were any more predictable, I could write these posts a week ahead of time and only have to change the "post" date.

I think Fred must be incredibly stupid.

Glenn Greenwald had a great post the other day that I believe explains a LOT regarding what motivates Fred and many others on the Right.

Red...Did you read Greenwald's link to the article by Norman Podhoretz?

...The sociopathy of these righties is deep-seated indeed.

Red Tory said...

Yeah I did. It's disturbing stuff. I have this bookmarked. I'll be revisiting it in due course.

I guess we should invade now to save the Gays.

*sigh* Personally I don't give a flying fuck what Ahmadinejad says. He's a nut, yeah, but he's half a world away and has little real power.

Bush on the other hand is a nut in my immediate vicinity with the power to arrest me because my hair is red, lock me in a hole and torture me for the rest of my life without court oversight. He can't say Nu-Cle-ar, but has his hand on the history eraser button and has taken a huge dump on the very document that's given him power. Al the while the right wing nods their heads and beats their drums.

So, why should I be worried about Iran again?
