Obama, Clinton cheer gay marriage, while forging ties with homophobic Iran

Rebel Staff
 

Only a few years ago, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were opposed to legalizing same-sex marriage.

That's all changed of course, and last week they celebrated the SCOTUS ruling, with Obama going so far as to light up the White House in rainbow colours.

Yet both of these powerful Democratic leaders also support forging stronger ties with Iran, which executes its gay citizens as part of its enforcement of sharia law.

Rick,

If we have a new Prime Minister in the fall – what do you plan to do? Will you be done with Canada?
commented 2015-06-30 15:06:26 -0400
Joan said: “Listen, folks, Canada does not support Iran.” Well, not now anyways. If Trudope or Tommie the Commie makes power in the fall, that could all change very rapidly. Trudope has already said as much.

Peter,

Does that mean that devil has fooled Canada into making gay marriage legal 10 years ago?
commented 2015-06-30 13:06:25 -0400
Absolutely Dr. Jimmy. And I can see he’s got you fooled by your lack of wisdom and your outrageous lies

Listen, folks, Canada does not support Iran. Give us a break. But our very vocal socially conservative right is really hurting the brand with its anti-gay hate rhetoric. First Patrick Brown (see video ad aired before this story) and now right-wing columnist Anthony Furey agree with me: http://www.torontosun.com/2015/06/29/right-must-drop-anti-gay-talk All you devout Christians, your job is to look into your own heart and discipline your own life, not to throw stones.

Peter,

You actually believe that there is a Satan?

Dan,

Yes – I will keep laughing. Especially over the fact that conservatives lost here and now they will have to find something new to bitch about.

I am on the right side of history – because in case you didn’t know, the majority of Americans and Canadians support gay marriage, so the Supreme Court ultimately gave them what they wanted. The fat lady has sung. This will never be reversed – you can’t put the genie back in the bottle. It’s a landmark time in American history and it’s too bad that you are such a bigoted and homophobic fuck.

Um, no gay people didn’t have the rights as everyone else. They couldn’t get married across the board in America. What is so hard to understand here? Do you really hate gay people that much? What impact has gay marriage had on you personally since Canada made it legal 10 years ago?

Jimmy Da Silva;
Keep laughin’ Jimmy. Laughing at the judicial tyranny that forced homosexual marriage sanctioned by the state, and abortion on demand on us. Yeah, ha ha.
Keep laughin’ Jimmy. Laughin’ at the 5 million plus babies murdered in the womb in Canada, 55 million plus babies murdered in the US. Yeah, ha ha.
Keep laughin’ Jimmy. Laughin’ at the LGTBQRST freakshow invading our washrooms and everywhere else. Yeah, ha ha.
Keep laughin’ Jimmy. Laughin’ at the indoctrination of our children in sexual deviancy. Yeah, ha ha.
Keep laughin’ Jimmy. Laughin’ at the theft of our wealth and having it used to steal our rights and oppress us. Yeah, ha ha.
You think you’re on the right side of history do ya Jimmy, well keep laughin’ Jimmy, straight to hell…

Oh, and by the way, homosexuals already have all " the same human rights as everyone else", that’s why they’re called human rights. You and your ilk are demanding extra rights and you are trying to do it on the back of the feminist’s and the black man’s struggle in achieving human rights. That’s BS! You sayin’ the case is closed because some unelected activist judge scum bags acted immorally and illegally, is also BS! And it ain’t over till the fat lady sings…so, enjoy your side of history, Jimmy, Yeah, ha ha…

JIMMY DA SILVA. Hey Jimmy, you ever think. If brain dead, Trud 2 or Dulcare wins the next Election, will not Canada be hanging Gays also. These Guys are your friends, ain’t they. It will not be as bad as you think though. They only hang the Guy who has been penetrated. The Guy who dose the penetration goes Scot Free.

Jason,

Gay people are human beings that deserve the same human rights as everyone else – that’s all they need to make their case, which is why Canada and now America have made gay marriage legal.

Churches shouldn’t have tax exempt status anyway, so I don’t give a fuck about that. Gay marriage is legal and it’s the law of the land – respond accordingly or pay the price. Same as women’s right and the rights of black people. There is no difference – in terms of history, it’s now gay people’s turn for change.

You have lost – move on. The genie ain’t going back in the bottle.
commented 2015-06-29 18:17:07 -0400
Gays want us to celebrate, not just tolerate, or else. Jimmy, Christians as a minority are going to be persecuted as the Justice Department said it would do. Any church preaching against homosexuality will lose its charitable and tax exempt status. Not to mention that the judiciary just stomped over state rights. No amendment in the constitution speaks to sexual proclivity as a protected part of society; therefore anything not mentioned as a power to the federal government belongs with the STATES.
commented 2015-06-29 16:01:51 -0400
Dan,

I promise you everything will be OK. Years from now, everyone will be laughing that this was such a big issue. Just like we do in Canada, when Canadians say that we did this 10 years ago and it’s all good.
commented 2015-06-29 15:26:33 -0400
I’m a little confused. First, years ago, the gay community just wanted to be treated as equals in society, and I didn’t have an issue with that. Then they, less than 10% of the overall population, wanted “gayness”, if that’s even a word, to be treated as “normal” (the word “normal” being very fluid and ambiguous at the best of times). And, at least in Ontario, they now want to dictate how “gayness” should be taught in schools.

Whatever happened to their original goal? They claim discrimination, as in the case of caterers or bakers who, for reasons of conscience, decline service, and now want to rewrite the definition of marriage (in the US, at least)? They demand tolerance, but don’t seem to give the same tolerance to the 90% of the population that is not gay.

I’m reminded of a line in a movie, where the leading character is warning one of his subordinates to not give ground:
“What happens when you give a mouse a cookie?” “He’s going to want a glass of milk.”

Where do we draw the “equality” line?

Dan,

Are you actually serious or is this sarcastic hyperbole? I can never tell with conservatives. If you are serious – I am here to comfort you and let you know that the west will be fine. Just like it has been fine for the last 10 years when Canada made gay marriage legal.

Why is it all you churchy conservatives claim that the end of the world is coming? Meanwhile nobody else gives a shit what you have to say because such claims are laughable. Don’t worry – North America will be just fine now that gay marriage is legal.

Considering the divorce rate is near 50%. Straight people have done more damage to “marriage” than gay marriage ever could.

Is it not obvious the Shrillary Clintons and the FUBARack Obamas and fellow travelers of the world are liars, hypocrites and scoundrels, their hidden agenda is to destroy the West, starting with America. They are in the employ/under the control of the One Worlders. Their agenda of destruction is almost complete, so I don’t think there is anything we can do to reverse the damage done and damage coming. More than the puppets and the puppeteers, I blame THE PEOPLE. The people let it happen out of their own narcissism, laziness and foolhardy willful ignorance.
With the action of those five traitorous criminal scum on the SCotUS, our fate is now sealed. The end of life as we know it is now upon us. We were warned, and warned, and warned. We did not heed the warnings. Now it’s time to pay the piper because the SHTF now…

Liberalism is a mental disorder. Most leftists are too clueless and have such tunnel vision that they don’t see the contradiction.

This isn’t new. Both Reagan and Nixon sought closer ties to their foe, communist China—even visited them—while rightly upholding capitalism, freedom, and democracy in the States and around the world. Much of the West, including the States, has also held close ties to numerous regimes which violated human rights, suppressed its population, and committed atrocities within their own borders. Saudi Arabia is the first nation which comes to mind, but there are many others which haven’t softened their positions in decades, yet we maintain our ties.

Working with countries which don’t share our values smacks of double-standards, certainly, but this is the nature of world politics. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”, and in this case the enemies are Iran and ISIS, respectively. Would Ezra prefer Obama only work with countries which support gay rights? That would be a fairly short list, although it would give Ezra plenty of headlines: “Obama stubbornly refuses to import Saudi oil because they don’t agree with him on gay rights!”

Ken Hedger, they are interchangeable. I’ve said before that Obama and Trudeau are two peas in a pod, it is like they call and check with each other before they spew their BS.
commented 2015-06-29 11:29:25 -0400
Obama is so two faced. I get confused, is he America’s Justin Trudeau or is Trudeau Canada’s Obama ?
