Homophobic assault, but by whom?

This is another BBC story where what they leave out is more interesting than what they put in:

Dutch men are uploading pictures of themselves holding hands on to social media to stand against homophobia.

The trend was sparked by an alleged attack on two gay men on a street in the Netherlands on Sunday.

Jasper Vernes-Sewratan, 35, and Ronnie Sewratan-Vernes, 31, say they were attacked by a group of men in the early hours of Sunday morning in Arnhem, in the country’s east.

Yeah? Any description of the attackers? Not from the BBC, no. What about here:

All four arrested are from Arnhem, including a 14-year-old and three 16-year-olds. They join two who were held by police right after the attack, another 14-year-old boy and a man, aged 20.

Note the lack of names: possibly because they are underage, but what about the 20 year old? Finally after some digging around I find this:

Jasper wrote on Facebook that the attackers were Moroccan, but he did not say how he knew.

So even LGBQT publications are casting doubt on the victim’s account of who the attackers were, while the mainstream media are simply refusing to report it.

I’ve been saying for a while that gay men are going to get thrown under the bus by the progressive crowd before too long, and it appears that this is already happening. There’s a problem here, and it isn’t one that is going to be solved by Dutch men walking around holding hands with one another. I wonder which way they voted in the last election? And I wonder to whom they will run in future?

  1. I don’t think it will be a conscious ‘thrown under the bus’ by the progressives as such (though true enough everything can be sacrificed for the progress they cannot delineate but so earnestly desire) but more that they have unleashed so many conflicting issues it is all running out of control.

    I have long argued that our so-called leaders cannot control what we have even if they wanted to, so like us all must be swept along by a storm that they helped unleash. They may have the words but not the will, and increasingly the progressives seek to unleash yet more on an already uncontrollable sequence. Putting islamists in among people who want same sex relationships could never end well, no matter how many fine words are spoken about diversity and tolerance. I am sorry to say that the symbolism of men holding hands in ‘solidarity’ with their gay friends comes apart pretty quickly in the face of solid fists.

  2. I don’t think it will be a conscious ‘thrown under the bus’ by the progressives as such

    I do. I think there is a very clear ranking of the Victimhood Poker scores, and Islam comes out on top. Look at the treatment of Ayaan Hirsi Ali: being black and female and the victim of FGM doesn’t stop her being branded a white supremacist and banned from speaking at western universities. I think when the progressives choose who to back they do so very carefully, I don’t think any of this is accidental.

  3. My progressive friends refuse to understand where this is heading.

    ‘Why don’t we try dialogue?’ as if talking is going to achieve something. They do not understand what is coming our way.

  4. In the US the penny is dropping, and LGBTQ etc. people are taking advantage of the 2nd ammendment and arming themselves. See for example the Pink Pistols or Operation Blazing Sword (https://www.facebook.com/OperationBlazingSword/ ) founded by an FB friend of mine.

    It is interesting that said friend, in addition to having taken a BBC journo shooting last year, is now getting contacts from various other places in Europe

    From https://www.facebook.com/erin.palette/posts/10208592536203210

    Two weeks ago, I was contacted by a British journalist wanting info on the rise of gun ownership among LGBTQ people.
    Today, I spoke to a newspaper reporter in Israel about the same thing.
    Also today, I received an email inquiry from a freelance reporter in Sweden, wanting to interview me about Blazing Sword.
    I’m not complaining, but why am I suddenly popular over there?

  5. @FrancisT: The problem with this is that even if you do use self-defence, the State will then turn on you even more ferociously that the original attackers. You’ll be hauled through the courts and ruined.
