Gutfeld's Stunt: A Ground Zero Gay Bar

However, just because I support Muslim Americans in their fight against anti-Islam prejudice, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get a few dings for their religion’s own prejudice against homosexuals… Still though, the only thing that would make this plan perfect would be if Gutfeld created a chain of gay bars and plopped them down next to churches and synagogues since it’s not like those religions have been super open-minded.

That, pretty much. Underscored. I really do understand the reason this bar is being done where it’s being done, and it’s a shitty shitty reason, and is being done to offend and provoke. But I’m also not going to whitewash religious prejudice against homosexuals for any religion, and I don’t feel it’s incredibly important to be sensitive about the irrational hatred so many share about homosexuals.

You know, why not set up KKK headquarters near Ground Zero, and maybe a Scientology gift center? Let’s pimp that area out with all the diversity that can be found across America, and let these people go at each other’s throats. Let’s show the world what an open minded society we are, and how all these niches receive the same protection and freedoms.

And at some point, maybe someone will pick up on the irony that since 2001 our country could not get its shit together enough to put up a decent memorial to all those who lost their lives in NYC on 9/11, while every other special interest - no matter how unwelcome or freaky - was able to get funding, and get something built “in the shadow” of a building that doesn’t even exist yet.
