Seriously! (I think!) The Red Eye host says:
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.
I think it’s a brilliant idea. It’ll bring both sides of the Ground Zero mosque together in protest, and inevitably a few of them will wander inside to see what all the fuss is about and learn something new about themselves. Meanwhile, Bloomberg’s head will implode as he tries to figure out who to scold. It’ll be beautiful.
In other news about guys who have similar ideas to my own but do a much better job of expressing them, please read Iowahawk’s “Undocumented Imam’s Refusal to Perform Interracial Gay Handicapped Wedding Leads to Charges of Racism.”
P.S. Hot new Twitter hashtag: #GutfeldGayBarNames. My suggestion: Explosions.
