One of the familiar arguments from the loony right is that there is some sort of liberal-Muslim axis working together to destroy America, which is all the more amusing because the ideology of reactionary Islam that they’re referring to is far less similarly to liberalism than it is to the brand of social conservatism promoted by those who make this moronic argument. In fact, Al Qaeda is now joining those folks in condemning Obama for supporting marriage equality.
Al Qaeda says the United States has another crime to add to its litany of atrocities: support for same-sex marriage.
In the latest issue of Inspire, the Al Qaeda-produced English-language magazine that teaches readers how to cause traffic accidents, torch parked cars, and “make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom,” the terrorist group goes after President Barack Obama for “evolving” on marriage equality. In an infographic titled “The Nation Standing on ‘No Values,” the magazine also goes after “gay congressman” Barney Frank, who is no longer a congressman.
The image in this article is of Obama saying he’s evolving on same-sex marriage and then a picture of Barney Frank actually getting married. Funny, that sounds pretty much exactly like the rhetoric we hear from conservative, doesn’t it?
