For years it's been an article of faith on the right that liberals are softening up America for the eventual introduction of sharia law. So you'd think right-wingers would be pleasantly surprised at the fact that Hollywood -- the center of the liberal universe! -- is upset about Tinseltown ties to the government of Brunei, which just came under a very harsh sharia-based legal code, and would be full of praise for the entertainment community:
LOS ANGELES -- The response here to the planned imposition of Islamic law in Brunei, with extreme penalties for adultery and gay sex, has become more pointed in recent days as two Hollywood-related charities moved events from the Beverly Hills Hotel, which is owned by the Brunei Investment Agency.Actually, no, if you have any sense you wouldn't think right-wingers would be pleasantly surprised at this, or that they'd be praising the entertainment community, because you know that right-wingers in America hate Hollywood and liberalism just as much as they hate Muslims. So the Free Republic reaction to this consists mostly of homophobic sneering, along with the suggestion that maybe sharia is appropriate for certain people:
According to the Deadline Hollywood news site, a fund-raiser on Wednesday for the youth organization Teen Line will be moved from the hotel to the Sony lot in Culver City, Calif....
Separately, the Hollywood Reporter wrote that the annual “Night Before the Oscars” fund-raiser for the Motion Picture and Television Fund, usually held at the Beverly Hills Hotel, will now be held elsewhere.
The sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, last week began phasing in a new penal code based on Islamic law, or Shariah, that by 2015 will make gay sex and adultery punishable by stoning to death. The sultan's investment agency owns the Dorchester Collection, which manages a chain of hotels that includes the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Hotel Bel-Air and other luxury hotels....
Last week, the Global Women's Rights Awards, co-chaired by Jay Leno and his wife, Mavis, moved from the Beverly Hills Hotel to another location. On Monday, its sponsor, the Feminist Majority Foundation, staged a protest at the hotel, joined by Mr. Leno. Richard Branson, the entrepreneur; Tim Gill, a social rights advocate; and Ellen DeGeneres are also among those who have voiced support for the boycott....
Dude, it was the anal sex prohibition ...the Hollyweird gay mafia went apoplectic..In an earlier thread, the Freepers can't seem to pick sides in this fight at all:
Nothing brings Hollyweird out like support for anal sex between two men.
BULL! Force Sharia law on Hollyweird. They're at the heart of leftist america so cram it down their throats and let them choke to death on it!
You know...you make a good point. Clooney, Penn, Damon, and Affleck should have to live under it since they seem to love diversity and coddle 0 o much...
Maybe a few public stonings for adulterous relationships in Hollywood, would wake up some of the liberal Hollywood elite.
That plus an "honor killing" or two of promising young starlets, who attend a party at the Playboy mansion, would probably convince folks that Shari law belongs only in 3rd world countries, if anywhere at all.
Big whoop. Islam gets a pass by the Left because of their shared hatred of the West.And over at Glenn Beck's Blaze, the commenters know who the real enemy is in this situation: Obama, of course.
Gala *snort*. Look, Muslims vs Hollywood gays calls for a mega popcorn run.
Yup, let them go m.a.d.: mutually assured destruction.
It would be wonderful if we can get rid of radical islam, hollywood, and homosexuals by pitting themselves against each other.
It would be Reaganesque: We would win the war without firing a shot.
In bed with our enemies.Well, that certainly puts the issue in clear focus, doesn't it?
Remember, barack insane obama bin laden bows to them and says he’s on their side.
I believe Jesus. I believe God's word. The beast is Islam, and it's living prophet is Obama.
this admin has been hostile to Christians and the Judeo/Christian values our country was founded on and are in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood -- who are in Ob's admin and who have the same values as the Sultan of Brunei !!! Our personal freedoms are going away one by one -- EVERY DAY!!
Watch out these are Anti-American Commie Muslim Terrorist Bin Lying Bama's relatives. Anyone wonder why Moosechelle the transvestite hasn't visited an Arab Country yet with her husband. Also you have not seen one photo of an Arab Leader, Bin Lying Bama and Moosechelle here in this country.
