Columnist in false equivalence shocker

Islam does have a problem with homosexuality. But so do western conservatives
TIM STANLEY

Err, yeah.

It’s almost exactly two centuries since Britain executed more people for homosexual acts (being homosexual has never been a crime) than it did for murder in the one year. Probably shouldn’t have done that back then but we’re certainly not going to so that now, are we? As opposed to Isis throwing people off buildings……

The definition of “problem” is doing a lot of work there, isn’t it?

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    Tim Stanley – Tory intellectual:

    Since 2011, Stanley has been a regular blogger and occasional columnist for the Daily Telegraph,[5] reporting on American politics and culture, particularly the 2012 Republican primaries. He contributes to History Today,[6] and has written pieces for CNN,[7] The Guardian[8] and The Spectator.[9]
    ….
    Stanley joined the British Labour Party at the age of 15.[citation needed] He was Chair of Cambridge University Labour Club in 2003-4, and stood as the Labour candidate for his home constituency of Sevenoaks at the 2005 general election, where he came third. He has since distanced himself from the Labour Party,[12] and has been arguing in support of the US Republican Party.[13][14] He is widely seen[by whom?] as being a supporter of David Cameron’s post-2005 Conservative party.

    Bet he isn’t arguing in support of the Republicans now.

  2. What’s the ‘false equivalence’? Trump supporters in the US have already been saying how ambivalent they are about the atrocity. They’re torn between their twin hatreds of ‘Muslims’ and ‘gays’.

    Just look at the usual closet cases here, and their reactions.

    Dave – “What’s the ‘false equivalence’? Trump supporters in the US have already been saying how ambivalent they are about the atrocity. They’re torn between their twin hatreds of ‘Muslims’ and ‘gays’.”

    Name three. Also, of course, even if a single Trump supporter felt ambivalent, feeling ambivalent is not equivalent to actually murdering people.

  4. I’m sure there are some people in the US who ‘hate’ ‘gays’, and I’m sure they’re more likely to support Trump than Hillary. But to suggest that Trump supporters in general are ambivalent about the atrocity requires some evidence. Do you have any?

    Those on the left OTOH have a terrible problem deciding whether they should support oppressed Muslims or oppressed gays – cf Owen Jones’s head exploding live on Sky.

  5. The anti-white gang are the senior branch of CM. After all the whole Circus of Shite got its start from the “anti-waycist” song and dance.

    Build up a huge head of steam as to how racism is the worst thing ever to have existed –like ever– ( no–socialism is far worse) and let the boiling pot of childish emotion spill over to as many other groups as possible. The stew–or more properly spew–is getting a little thin as it spreads out–TS’ers being the present outer limit.

    Have no doubt hatred of white people is the senior line though and all other groups will go under the bus to preserve that narrative. Hence the femmi-skanks silence about RoPrape–or indeed attempts to discredit female victims of Cologne as “unreliable witnesses”.
