There is a disturbing trend of violence against gay men and lesbians in the Netherlands, a trend that continues to be ignored by the Left-leaning bureaucrats who naively adhere to their multicultural mantras. Despite the rising number of attacks against members of the gay and lesbian community in Amsterdam, politicians and police there seem to be in a permanent state of denial. Why would a city noted for its openness and tolerance turn a blind eye to such blatant acts of barbarity? Can anyone take an educated guess?
The rising attacks against gays, lesbians, and Jews in Amsterdam are being perpetrated by, yep, you guessed it, Muslim immigrants. And the town fathers and mothers seem not to sense the cultural threat to their permissive paradise. Once proudly hailed as the safe haven hub of an enlightened Europe, Amsterdam is now becoming the Hate Crime Capital of what remains of Western Civilization.
This sad set of circumstances has not gone unchallenged by lesbians and gays in the Netherlands’ well-known city. On Sunday, gay organizations in Amsterdam conducted a demonstration to protest the violence and to urge city administrators to confront it. But during the protest, demonstrators themselves were met with acts of aggression and assault.
A demonstration of two thousand gay and lesbians against anti-gay violence Sunday was ruined by a series of incidents. In one of them a demonstrator was injured at the hands of two women believed to be Moroccan. Afterwards the demonstrator reported the perpetrators to the police. They were both subsequently detained, but set free on Monday….Two boys drove into the crowd several times with their scooter….and a group of lesbians were hit by beer cans that were thrown at their heads, and Right to Feel Safe this morning received four additional reports of verbal abuse and threats.
The only US news outlet that I’m aware of that bothered to publish this story was Andrew Breitbart’s Big Peace. Over at the Advocate, the vigilant voice of the progressive gay community, there was not a peep about the situation in Amsterdam. However, the Gay Gray Lady did cover a news story from the UK about a British gay man attacked by teenagers who spoke with Irish accents. Irish accents? Oh, I get it! It was progressively correct for the Advocate to cover this particular act of anti-gay violence because the perpetrators were presumed white. We must not forget the progressive precept of gerrymandering justice: It’s only a vitriolic hate crime when a gay man or lesbian is bashed by white Europeans. When the mugs are Muslim, well, it’s nothing more than a little multicultural misunderstanding. Kum ba ya anyone?
The Advocate’s message to gay men and women in Amsterdam, a message echoed by all queer quislings who have been co-opted by progressive patronage, is resonating loud and clear as the Gay Gray Lady declares, Bleed on, brothers and sisters, bleed on!
