Video: How gay is the Taliban?

posted at 7:22 pm on August 23, 2007 by Allahpundit

Find someone calling his ideological opponents gay these days and it’s a safe bet he’s a leftist. This time is no exception.

Which isn’t to say they’re wrong, but still. So the jihadis are into eyeliner and having their picture taken. I ask you — does that make them any gayer than, say, Poison?

Actually, maybe that’s not the best example.

So the taliban is into taliwackers ?

William Amos on August 23, 2007 at 7:28 PM

The currupt Taliban being currupted? There is a God!

leanright on August 23, 2007 at 7:34 PM

Sorry, should have been corrupt. My bad, did not preveiw.

leanright on August 23, 2007 at 7:37 PM

Maybe they would like W and Tony better if they watched this

400lb Gorilla on August 23, 2007 at 7:37 PM

AP. Snoozer. Sorry.

Time for some football, anyways.

When a crow flies over Kandahar it only flaps with one wing, the other it uses to cover it tail….Doh….

doriangrey on August 23, 2007 at 7:44 PM

That is the gayest thing I ever saw in my life. And that includes a LOT of gay porn.

logis on August 23, 2007 at 7:49 PM

When a crow flies over Kandahar…

The Taliban version of “White Cliffs of Dover”?

Wow. Just… wow.

That’s really interesting.
Oddly enough I’ve never seen that stuff reported.

go figure.

Love your fellow man, beat your fellow woman.

It’s not the gun, it’s the size of his barrel

Kini on August 23, 2007 at 8:28 PM

I think one of those guys is Bobby Brown

400lb Gorilla on August 23, 2007 at 8:33 PM

The Taliban are all about “Man-Love Thursdays”.

PBoilermaker on August 23, 2007 at 9:02 PM

How Gay are the Jihadi’s?

–Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Does this AK-47 make me look fat?

infidel4life on August 23, 2007 at 9:25 PM

Their leaders decree that all women should cover themselves head to toe and they keep themselves segregated from all women except those in their immediate families. How could they not turn to each other for “companionship”?

NoSquids on August 23, 2007 at 9:30 PM

I thought it was common knowledge that Arab and Afghan men liked to take it up Kandahar highway, if you know what I mean. wink wink nudge nudge say no more.
I traveled a good bit in the middle east and that was always my impression and the impression of those who knew.

TheSitRep on August 23, 2007 at 9:44 PM

That was gayer than Liberace dryhumping Andy Dick.

Thomas the Wraith on August 23, 2007 at 9:50 PM

Tali me Bananna.

Dork B. on August 23, 2007 at 9:57 PM

I didn’t know the photographer from Saturday Night Live was Taliban! Holy CRAP!

robblefarian on August 23, 2007 at 10:01 PM

That was gayer than Liberace dryhumping Andy Dick.

Thomas the Wraith on August 23, 2007 at 9:50 PM

And gayer than 9 guys servicing 11 other guys.

But still not as gay as these guys

Schweggie on August 23, 2007 at 10:21 PM

and the video of the day a couple days ago…the stoopid jihadi mortar?

That guy was coming out….but not now….hehe.

Their version of gay pride is keep it quiet, or else.

OR, maybe he said Blow m….never mind.

oh… man. that’s great.

BadgerHawk on August 23, 2007 at 10:57 PM

James Michener talks about this in Caravans and it’s also in Charlie Wilson’s War.

It’s a Pashtun thing to have khol-eyed “girlfriends” with flowers in their hair, who keep the warriors company.

It is in bizarre and stunning juxtaposition to how they treat real women, who aren’t allowed to prance around with flowers in their hair but have to hide under chaderis, and are stoned to death for indiscretions.

Buy Danish on August 23, 2007 at 11:15 PM

I think I understand why Rosie is “confused” about who the terrorirists are now. They’re her people.

PowWow on August 24, 2007 at 12:31 AM

Fascinating.

Though I must say that, in regards to the male affection quotient, these are very reminiscent of portraits made during the U.S. Civil War

In other words, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re *all* Friends of Dorothy ; )

The Ugly American on August 24, 2007 at 12:37 AM

I didn’t know the photographer from Saturday Night Live was Taliban!

Well, that certainly explains why these look so familiar.

LOL…..

The Ugly American on August 24, 2007 at 12:42 AM

Hah! Slow news days are actually pretty damn funny news days I guess.

Watching that I kept thinking that Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure was at play—apparently they went back to 7th century Afghanistan, loaded a bunch of Taliban into their time travelling phone booth, then brought them back to a 21st century Olan Mills Photography studio run by Big Gay Al.

Montana on August 24, 2007 at 12:54 AM

Absolutely fabulous!

Rode Werk on August 24, 2007 at 2:00 AM

To think, I got in trouble once for calling them faggots…

Tim Burton on August 24, 2007 at 2:35 AM

The more they’re planting each other the less they’re planting IED’s.

infidelforlife-

Does this AK47 suicide vest make me look fat?

Fixed it for you.

profitsbeard on August 24, 2007 at 3:00 AM

Is this a case of “Don’t need to ask, can already tell”?

As far as the focus on flora component, Soldier of Fortune magazine ran dozens of pro mujahidin stories during the Soviet occupation.

There were almost always pictures of Kalishnikovs decorated with flower decals.

soundingboard on August 24, 2007 at 3:29 AM

Now you know why I call their leader “osama ben dover.”

Texas Nick 77 on August 24, 2007 at 6:07 AM

I notice the gay community is pretty quiet about the fringe lefts’ new heroes. How many gays haven’t heard that Muslims kill homosexuals out of righteousness?

And then along comes this article. Real life slaps art.

Coronagold on August 24, 2007 at 6:43 AM

No wonder they won’t let women wear make-up. They need it all for dress up.

“Ahmed, is that an RPG rocket in your pocket or did you just watch a video of John Edwards?”

Many of the posers appear to have violated a major tenet by becoming a part of the great washed, vice living a life of being unwashed by anything-especially soap and water.

What about this?

Miss_Anthrope on August 24, 2007 at 10:27 AM

I hear talk about how Islamics are torn between their own beliefs and liberal Western culture. But now after watching this video, I know the basis of their discontent……. they covet our music.

GAWD their CRAP music is terrible.

Ernest on August 24, 2007 at 11:08 AM

So the jihadis are into eyeliner and having their picture taken.

They were also holding hands, which is a little gay for guys.

It wouldn’t make me jump to that conclusion, but for such a repressive organization, it sends off a specific message.

Esthier on August 24, 2007 at 11:44 AM

Slightly off topic
About 8 years ago, I regularly used a laundromat that shared a building with a bar. It was almost impossible to get a parking space close to the building in the evening, especially when there was a live band playing next door. My brother’s band played there a couple of times and we had to park way down the street.

One night I went to do my laundry and the parking lot was basically vacant. I parked right in front of the door, went in, started my laundry, and moved to the billiard room. A few minutes later “talk dirty to me” began playing loudly thru the wall. It was followed by another Poison song, then another, and another. The whole time I was thinking, “Poison’s career is over. Why would someone try to make it as a Poison cover band now? Idiots!”
When I left, I checked the marquis to see the name of the band. What I saw made me laugh so hard I cried – the band was Poison.

Wingo on August 24, 2007 at 1:28 PM

now we know why they treat their women the way the do.

Now if H & K would do a Hello Kitty themed 416, I would so hafta have one.

Wait…were those guys a Singapore SWAT team who showed up late?
