Muslim Leaders Praise Ugandan Anti-Gay Bill


American progressive love to harp on Uganda’s anti-gay legislation while paying very little attention to Muslim Gambia whose rhetoric is just as bad, never mind Iran or Pakistan. For the same reason, progs focused on Nigeria recently while overlooking the fact that the push for anti-gay measures came from Muslims.

(Ironically, Obama Inc. and progs had insisted that President Goodluck Jonathan needed to fight terrorism by giving Muslims more of a role. And then they got what they wanted.)

Uganda Muslims have welcomed the decision of President Yoweri Museveni to back an anti-gay bill that imposes life sentences for some homosexual acts, risking ties between western donors and the east African country.

“It takes a courageous leader to defy all the western powers who have gone as far a threatening to cut off aid to Uganda incase the president signs the anti-gay bill,” said Hajji Nsereko Mutumba, the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) Public Relations Officer, in statement cited on Wednesday, February 19.

“I would like to commend President Museveni for his decision to sign the anti-gay bill,” Mutumba said.

Appreciating Museveni’s decision, the Muslim Council has urged a national support for the president.

It is now the duty of all Ugandans to rally behind the President because “the coming days, weeks, months and years may not be easy for the country,” UMSC’s Public Relations Officer urged.

Look for Western progressives to ignore this while they continue lambasting Uganda, while ignoring the fact that the most dangerous countries in the world for homosexuals are Muslim countries.

    A popular progressive blog has covered Nigeria’s gay plight 20 times. This year it has been mentioned 9 times.

    One of the stories mention Muslim once. It sort of had to mention Muslims because it mentioned sharia courts. The tags for the stories do not include Islam or or Muslim.

    The stories feature a Roman Catholic Cardinal at least twice and President Goodluck. No Muslim clergy or Lawmaker is singled out with a picture or a cover story.

    The blog does mention Christianists, which is no surprise since they have been calling certain people teabaggers as have prominent national level politicians of the Democrat party. Teabagger is a tag word for the blog.

    “In Jonathan Alter’s “The Promise: President Obama, Year One,” President Obama is quoted in an November 30, 2009, interview saying that the unanimous vote of House Republicans vote against the stimulus bills “set the tenor for the whole year … That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans.”

    ““I… appreciate your concern about the toxic political environment right now. I do have to challenge you, though, on the notion that any citizen that disagrees with me has been ‘targeted and ridiculed’ or that I have ‘made fun’ of tea-baggers.”” – Obama (in a written ‘off the cuff’ remark)

    Looks like Uganda is another country that Clare Underwood’s Clean Water Initiative (“House of Cards”) could set up shop in. In Season 1 of the TV series she had to resort to “back door” diplomacy with the Muslim government to get things going and her stuff out of Sudanese customs. Poor baby.

    progs – great and highly descriptive word. A type of pre-amphibian life form; the frog is a noble animal in comparison. Hope it catches on.

    I’m entirely unable to understand the fascination every scribe, bureaucrat, useless eater seems to have w/ a bunch of disease ridden & deranged homosexuals & pedophiles. Please explain this obsession.
