Greg Gutfeld Outlines His Islamic Gay Bar Plans On Last Night’s Red Eye
Mediaite.com ^ | 08/10/2010 | Jon Bershad

Posted on 08/10/2010 11:57:57 AM PDT by OldDeckHand

Yesterday, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld updated The Daily Gut with a slightly different “Gregalogue.” He detailed his plans to open up a gay bar next to the forthcoming “Ground Zero mosque” so as to test the builders claims that the community center is for “outreach.” On last night’s Red Eye, he outlined his plan and discussed it in a typically irreverent style with his guests. While the idea still seems brilliant, the conversation highlighted just how thin a tightrope the satirist is walking here.

Like I said last night, the plan is incredibly clever. However, it is clear that it will only really work if it is seriously about tweaking religious persecution of homosexuals and not just about pissing off a bunch of Muslims. Some of our incredibly astute commenters have pointed out in the still going debate on that post that New York’s gays aren’t going to flock to this bar just to be a part of some Fox News guy’s beef with a mosque no matter how good the music is (and Gutfeld promises it will be great). This is going to have to work as a provocation and a business.

I think he's actually serious. Someone should look into opening up a BBQ PORK Restaurant on the other side of the planned Mosque.

A dog park should work.

Great strategy. Drive a wedge between 2 liberal interest groups while deliciously exposing hypocrisy.

Gutfeld’s 3AM RedEye is one of the happiest shows on TV.

Nurse Bloomberg will see to it that never happens.

Y’all are forgetting about how amazingly the city expedited the permitting process to build the mosque and condemn the historic building that occupies the site.

Bloomberg will make certain that ol’ Greg never gets the permits and licenses he needs to open up a bar anywhere in NYC.

How about a strip joint? Hey, did you read about the strip club that has started protesting outside of a church on Sunday mornings, because the church protests outside of their establishment on Friday nights? The authorities do nothing of course, because of “free speech”.. Well why not spread some of that free speech to the muslims? I think we could measure the level of “outreach” committment by opening a PORK hotdog stand on the sidewalk in front of the mosque and perhaps a dog park in front.

Add pork-based products to the menu, and hand out lots of free towels for use as headwear.

Protect your goats from sexual assault, also....

it amazes me that liberals can support such a closed society as islam..how do they make that rational..

If you really want to help ..put a goat farm next to the mosque. will be a great money maker.

There was a Greek Orthodox church nearby that was destroyed on 9/11, which is still waiting for a permit to rebuild.

Two points:

1) Liberals and leftists love to deride and ridicule religion unless it has the potential to bring bodily harm. Muslims kill people, especially homos.

2) How are you going to get a license for a gay bar right next to a house of worship?

The progressive would point a gun between their eyes & pull the trigger if they thought such an act would outrage middle America.

Say, maybe theres an opportunity for a little reverse psychology here.

Since muzzies take offense at everything under the sun, it should be pretty easy to find something to piss them off.

"2) How are you going to get a license for a gay bar right next to a house of worship? "

I don't have an answer for your first question, because I think if they are successful in opening a gay bar - or any bar - next to the mosque, it's a bombing waiting to happen.

But, you don't get a license for a "gay bar", you just get a license for a bar. This is NYC, not some suburban area. Look at St Pat's Cathedral in NYC. I bet there are 10 bars well-within one block of the Cathedral, and I know that there are several bar/restaurants right across the street in 30 Rock. There's nothing "right next door" to the Cathedral per se, but only because it takes up the entire block.

A Gay Bar is our response? What about a church? What about invitations to the strongest Christians in the country to move there, and make that church their church?

THAT is a real response.

Note the tagline ...

The only thing that would REALLY count would be the approval for a cathedral and a synagogue in Mecca. File the applications with the Saudi government and stand by for fireworks!

2 acme signs pointing to the mosque on either side, one says Jewish temple, the other says Christian worship center, then being that the moose limbs are already all whacked out they will have no choice but to bomb themselves..maybe they will ask themselves if they are converts and have to kill themselves just for the huh wtf of it...

Can somebody please explain the difference between a gay bar and a pork restaurant?

Over at National Review Online, they have a story up that discusses this proposed bar, and they have suggested some possible names...

Gutfeld’s proposal has already gone viral and ideas for names for the bar — conveying the Islamic flavor — have been pouring in from the blogosphere. They include “Al Gayda,” “The Velvet Sword,” “Party Like You’re an Infidel”, “72 Virgins,” and my favorite, “The Ba’ath Party.”

I was thinking they could make a subtle alteration to the iconic "Cheers" sign...

...and simply call it "Queers".

Either that or "Queens in Manhattan".

No, a gay bar is Greg Gutfeld’s response. I don’t support the idea. The enemy of my enemy is not my friend. I won’t promote an agenda that isn’t mine.

Personally, I think the gay bar idea would backfire. These extremists are willing to kill us because they believe we’re morally bankrupt. Proving their point won’t dissuade them.

Might I suggest visiting 7-11 and purchasing lots of fried pork-rines to be liberally scattered on the sidewalks front entrance 5 times a day ?

Maybe a farmer w/ a truck load of unwanted pork parts/blood would be willing to ‘salt’ the site.

They've been falling all over themselves claiming that it is NOT a mosque, or house of worship. It's a CULTURAL center, don't you know!

Well, BBQ pork and gay bars are part of the AMERICAN culture, so the folks who run them will just be doing a little outreach themselves. ;o)
