In an astonishing article over at the Huffington Post, James Peron attacks the West in the wake of the Islamic attack in Sydney. Hate journalism at its finest.
The Huffington Post unabashedly carries water for the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth, the sharia. The ascension and success of the global jihad is made possible by the sanction and propaganda of the vicious advance men (and women) at the Huffington Post, and has been for some time, but this article reaches a new low — even for these slugs.
Hostage Tori Johnson was a hero in the Sydney siege. Mr Johnson, the cafe manager of two years, tried to wrestle the gun from the jihad hostage-taker and was shot and killed. What difference does it make if this exceptional man was gay? That’s all that matters to the Puff Hos.
The Huffington Post, which does more to advance the jihad cause then even CAIR, has taken an incredible act of heroism during the Islamic siege in Sydney and twisted it to its own depraved ends.
How did the Huffington Post report on the savage jihad in Sydney? By making it about gay marriage. The Puff Hos exploited Tori Johnson’s exceptional act of humanity to attack the West and all Western nations.
“Gay Hero of Sydney Hostage Crisis Died a Second Class Citizen”
Does Huff Po’s James Peron even know what second class citizen means under Islamic law? The dhimmis (religious minorities in Muslim countries under Islamic law) are second “second class citizens” — a sub-class status denied basic human rights. Christians in a Muslim country are sub-class citizens. Women under sharia, whose testimony is worth a fraction of a man’s, are sub-class citizens. Blacks in Mauritania, living as slaves under Muslim slave owners, are sub-class citizens.
Has anyone ever seen an article at the Huffington Post about the vicious sharia? Ever? Has anyone ever read about the daily abuse, torture and death gay people suffer under Islamic law in Muslim countries? Gay marriage? You can’t even have a gay thought in a country under the sharia. In Gaza, gay men have their faces ripped off. In Iran, they are executed. In Egypt, they are jailed, and on and on and on. But the Huffington Post attacks Australia, where Tori Johnson lived free and openly.
This was the Huntington Post’s takeaway from the jihad slaughter in Sydney. If I could have one wish, it would be that the writer James Peron live as a gay man under the sharia in a Muslim country.
Yes, that would be perfect. And if this second-hand hack gets his wish, it could very well happen.
Hostage forced to recite jihad demands in front of Islamic flag — but the Huffington Post is waging its jihad against the West.
This is really sick.
“Gay Hero of Sydney Hostage Crisis Died a Second Class Citizen,” James Peron, President, Moorfield Storey Institute, The Huffington Post, December 15, 2014
Often in times of crisis we find unlikely heroes; individuals who go well beyond the call of duty. Often these people are gay.
In ages past, this fact would be ignored, or not spoken about. It could even be a burden. Oliver Sipple was a Marine who saw combat duty in Vietnam. At home he was in the closet, but in San Francisco he had some chance to live his own life.
He was standing outside the St. Francis Hotel in 1975 where President Gerald Ford was appearing. As Ford left the building, a woman standing next to Sipple raised a pistol at the president. She fired, but not before Sipple saw what was happening and lunged at her, deflecting her arm and causing her to miss.
This act earned him the attention of the media — something he did not want. He didn’t want his name known. But the media was relentless. He asked them to not reveal he was gay, something he hid from his family, but, of course, the story got out — media feeding-frenzies rarely respect people and journalists feel themselves immune from consequences of their actions — after all, they sell a lot of papers and it’s not their lives that are screwed up.
Sipple’s mother did learn her son was gay and she disowned him, precisely what he feared. While he later reconciled with his parents, his mental health deteriorated. He drank heavily, became morbidly obese, and was found dead at the age of 47.
In Sydney, a mentally disturbed man, grabbing hold of religious extremism as his excuse, took customers of a coffee shop hostage. For hours, he threatened and used them as shields. Police negotiations were apparently going nowhere and the siege lingered past human endurance.
This lone man had more than a dozen people in his grip but was getting sleepy. He started nodding off, even though he would try to fight it.
The hostages were tired, but having a shotgun pointed at you has a way of keeping you alert. As the terrorist nodded off, the hostages ran for the door and safety — but not all of them.
One man charged the terrorist. Tori Johnson was 34. He managed the Lindt Chocolate Café for two years. Employees and customers all said he was a good man, a kind man. He was also a gay man.
Johnson tried to take the gun to protect the other hostages as they fled, but he was shot in the attempt. His attack distracted the terrorist. The others escaped and the sound of the gunshot brought in the police, who killed the armed man. Another hostage also died on the scene, but of a heart attack on the way to hospital after being shot.
Tori Johnson never went home that day, he died in hospital. He never again got to tell his partner of 14 years, Thomas Zinn, that he loved him, or that he wanted him to pick up his socks or any of the things one says to another who is the love of their life, with whom they share heart and home.
Tori’s partner Thomas, and his family, issued a statement: “We are so proud of our beautiful boy Tori, gone from this earth but forever in our memories as the most amazing life partner, son and brother we could ever wish for.”
Mark Bingham was a gay man on United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. The plane was in the hands of hijackers. He was rushing home to San Francisco to be an usher at a friend’s wedding. Hijackers took the plane and Bingham and other passengers were herded to the back of the plane. He called his mother and left a message telling her what was happening. Other passengers also called home and learned of the attack on the Twin Towers. Bingham and other passengers decided to rush the cockpit and take the plane back.
They fought the hijackers who lost control of the plane, crashing into an empty field instead heavily populated Washington, DC.
Father Mychal Judge was a priest and the chaplain to the New York Fire Department. When he learned of the attacks in New York he rushed to the Twin Towers and began offering last rites to those who died. He entered the Towers and began helping those who needed it. As the South Tower collapsed debris flew through the windows and he was killed.
His was the first body recovered and taken to the medical examiner, earning him the dubious distinction of “Victim 0001.” Father Judge was also a gay man. He disagreed with Catholic teaching and said, “Is there so much love in the world that we can afford to discriminate against any kind of love?”
Besides their sexual orientation, what Tori Johnson, Oliver Sipple, Mark Bingham and Mychal Judge had in common is that they were heroes, but not by design. Fundamentally they were good men thrust into horrific circumstances who acted in a way consistent with their own moral character. Heroes are good people facing unusual circumstances and remaining true to character.
Yesterday we learned that Tori Johnson was a good man.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott called Tori Johnson, and the other victim “good people.” Yes, Tori was good people, but to Abbott he still wasn’t good enough, at least not when it came to marriage.
Tori and his partner of 14 years, Thomas, could never be married, not in Australia. Tori and Thomas deserved the same rights as other Australians. But that right was denied them, and now, for Tori, it’s too late.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott laid flowers and said nice words but he’s still fighting to deny marriage rights to “good people” such as Tori Johnson.
If Abbot wishes to honor the heroism of Tori Johnson he should push for marriage equality. At the very least, he should get of the way and allow his own party caucus freedom to vote their conscience. For all couples like Tori and Frank it’s time to pass Senator David Leyonhjelm’s marriage legislation.
