Greg Gutfeld: I’m raising money to build a Muslim gay bar next to the Ground Zero mosque

posted at 7:07 pm on August 9, 2010 by Allahpundit

Andy Levy assures me that he’s quite serious. 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 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.

Not an idea that would play well with Christians or Jews vis-a-vis property adjacent to a church or temple, but oh well: If we’re going to celebrate tolerance regardless of the sensitivities of the surrounding area, let’s celebrate! And the best part? Because, as we’ve been assured many times, the “Park51″ cultural center will be a model of moderation, gay Muslim men don’t have to worry about being seen entering Gut’s establishment. Flaunt it all you want, fellas; you’re in Moderate Town, U.S.A., on that block. I look forward to the congratulatory Mike Bloomberg press conference.

Brilliant!

Holger on August 9, 2010 at 7:10 PM

And watch liberal heads explode…..

coyoterex on August 9, 2010 at 7:11 PM

Heh. I was hoping someone would open a pork BBQ joint next door, but this works too.

changer1701 on August 9, 2010 at 7:11 PM

Now that’s funny except for the worry about how extremist Muslims will react :/ I hope if they really do this they have great security measures.

aikidoka on August 9, 2010 at 7:11 PM

You want freedom, you got freedom.

Management Side on August 9, 2010 at 7:11 PM

All your gays are belong to us.

BobMbx on August 9, 2010 at 7:12 PM

H*LL Yeah!
Tolerance goes both ways.

annoyinglittletwerp on August 9, 2010 at 7:12 PM

A strip club that serves pulled pork bbq would be better.

The Ugly American on August 9, 2010 at 7:12 PM

Shoud have been Muslim Pork BBQ Shop.

William Amos on August 9, 2010 at 7:12 PM

Muslim gay bar is OK, pig farm would have been better

Mark1971 on August 9, 2010 at 7:12 PM

Update: So many great minds out there. Numerous readers say they wanted to open a strip club across the street. Others: A pork store (like Satriales in the Sopranos). I for one don’t see why you have to pick just one. A strip club/gay bar with many pork dishes on the menu (and elsewhere) might work just fine. Bonus: They could give away puppies!

Jonah Goldberg from NRO weighs in.

Maybe a Hooters-type restaurant that specialized in pork ribs?

Wethal on August 9, 2010 at 7:12 PM

Awesome.

I’d donate a bit… and I’m not muslim or gay.

Really, this ought to make a few lib heads tweak…

ReformedAndDangerous on August 9, 2010 at 7:12 PM

need a BBQ with massive fans across the sreet too.

unseen on August 9, 2010 at 7:12 PM

Now watch the islamofascists show just how “tolerant” they really are.

you gotta love greg :)

bloomie’s rant should be delicious

Oh but Pork will be on the menu. IYKWIMAITYD.

lorien1973 on August 9, 2010 at 7:13 PM

Let’s pitch in for a Muslim strip club as well.

Topsecretk9 on August 9, 2010 at 7:13 PM

Thats gonna be,a busy bar!!!

canopfor on August 9, 2010 at 7:13 PM

That is just beautiful. Good move, Guts!!

mr.blacksheep on August 9, 2010 at 7:13 PM

Excellent!

That makes equally as much sense as the ‘build the mosque at ground zero’ reasoning.

I’d go for raising money to start a strip club on the other side.

USCitizen on August 9, 2010 at 7:14 PM

wow is this really going to happen??
you’re right, if it was a Christian or Jewish place of worship it would piss people off, but in this particular situation…

CambellBrown on August 9, 2010 at 7:14 PM

Dude is going to wake up one morning in Jahannam if he’s not careful. I love Greg Gutfeld.

Greg is our answer to Stewart; I wish that Fox would put him in a better time slot and promote him as a real competitor to the daily show.

TimTebowSavesAmerica on August 9, 2010 at 7:15 PM

Greg Gutfeld is an evil genius.

MikeknaJ on August 9, 2010 at 7:15 PM

I was thinking a gay bath house instead but I’m pretty sure the Koran forbids the use of soap.

Oh but Pork will be on the menu. IYKWIMAITYD.

lorien1973 on August 9, 2010 at 7:13 PM

Yeah, they should call it “Mohammed’s Pork Sword”.

bopbottle on August 9, 2010 at 7:16 PM

No, but then it’s much less likely the funding for their religious buildings is coming from regions where homosexuals are executed.

Esthier on August 9, 2010 at 7:16 PM

There is a reason that Fox’s 3 a.m. Red Eye beats CNN’s prime-time.

May be during the day, the club can be used by the Ayaan Hirsi Ali Center for Post-Islamic Female Studies.

rickyricardo on August 9, 2010 at 7:19 PM

CambellBrown on August 9, 2010 at 7:14 PM

Perfect screen name.

But I have a hard time believing that if a Christian or Jewish group had done something this provocative that anyone would care if Gutfeld wanted to open up a gay bar next to their religious building.

Imagine that it’s being put next to the Phelp’s church, assuming they have one. Anyone care now?

Esthier on August 9, 2010 at 7:19 PM

We need a synagog and a hog-butcher on that block too.

They had the Half Hour News Hour, but it only lasted a couple of months. The skits where Rush was the President and Ann Coulter was the Vice President were priceless. Also loved all the bikini clad Cabinet Ministers.

Things like this are why Gutfeld pwns John Stewart. Stewart will just ironically make fun of those that don’t want the mosque.

I’ll put money into this project.

Genius, Gut. Pure genius.

MadisonConservative on August 9, 2010 at 7:28 PM

The architects should plan the urinals in the toilet facing Mecca.

carbon_footprint on August 9, 2010 at 7:28 PM

I went to the baths at the Mosque of Paris. It was pretty much a gay scene there. A more cultural sensative approach (and more amusing) would be to build a muslim bath house beside the ground zero mosque.
The Islamic gay bar to which I was dragged by an editor for the New York Times wasn’t that interesting.

thuja on August 9, 2010 at 7:28 PM

The Ground Zero Imam should be quizzed on whether he will perform gay marriages at the mosque.

faraway on August 9, 2010 at 7:29 PM

I hope Greg makes sure that the gay folk’s dogs are welcome too…and that there’s a little poopie relief area right next to the border line of the mosque.
