Mooz-lems Swapping Spit..

Hey guys! Get a tent!
..a little Middle eastern tongue sushi for your viewing pleasure, ladies and gents. (I ain't feelin' too P.C. at the moment.)

Anyway, this is in honor of Greg Gutman's superbly stellar (or is that stellarly superb?) idea to build a gay bar FOR MOOZ-LEMS right next to the proposed mosque at the 9/11 sight.

This idea, like Dustin Hoffman responded to his father in The Graduate, "is completely baked":

I'm announcing tonight, that I am planning to build and open the first gay bar that caters not only to the west, but also Islamic gay men. To best express my sincere desire for dialogue, the bar will be situated next to the mosque Park51, in an available commercial space.

This is not a joke. I've already spoken to a number of investors, who have pledged their support in this bipartisan bid for understanding and tolerance.

As you know, the Muslim faith doesn't look kindly upon homosexuality, which is why I'm building this bar. It is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world.

The goal, however, is not simply to open a typical gay bar, but one friendly to men of Islamic faith. An entire floor, for example, will feature non-alcoholic drinks, since booze is forbidden by the faith. The bar will be open all day and night, to accommodate men who would rather keep their sexuality under wraps - but still want to dance.

Bottom line: I hope that the mosque owners will be as open to the bar, as I am to the new mosque. After all, the belief driving them to open up their center near Ground Zero, is no different than mine.

My place, however, will have better music.

Quotes from around the right-wing blogosphere (Jeez! I hate that word) ripple with the deliciousness of Greg's idea. Nicky Goomba:

Folks, this type of American ingenuity is one more reason why we will dance on the graves of our enemies.

..Allahpundit, tongue planted firmly in cheek:

Media narrative on the GZ mosque: Shining beacon of liberal values bursting through the overcast skies of American intolerance. Media narrative on the GG gay bar: Dangerous provocation that needlessly inflames cultural tensions in the ostensible service of liberal values.

How very insensitive.

I'm off to see how the HillBuzz Boyz will cotton to this idea. And, not, I am not being cynical here; I am dead bang serious. These wonderful guys -- of the gay persuasion who have championed sound conservative causes might like this idea for the reason that many of us do. Not [only] just to jab a thumb in the eye of the hateful strictures of a baleful religion, but to offer those suffering under that hideous oppression some time in the sunlight.

Insensitive, my ruby red ass.

UPDATE: The HillBuzz daily thread is all over this like a cheap suit. God bless 'em and their readers.Some suggestions  for the bar's name:

  • Ram-a-Dam
  • Gee-HOT
  • Suspicious Packages
  • House of Submission
  • Call Me, Ishmael
  • Sin Bad and the Seven Boy Ages
One lady commenter suggests:

The idea was advanced that a bunch of menstruating women should go pee there and “desecrate” the ground.

I’d do it.

We might have a winner here!

Hat tip to Hot Air!, Ace of Spaces, and, of course, the inestimable Nicky Goombah.



  1. They're just checking to see if each other has been dining at Nickie's Rib Joint. It's a holy kiss designed to reinforce discipline within the ranks, and the use of tongues is prohibited in public (for what it's worth).

  2. It looked like there was tongue to me.
