QuAIA's place in the Pride march sends a disturbing message. In good Orwellian fashion, the rights of some in the community apparently trump those of others.Actually, Bernie, Fanny Brice never said it. Bob Merrill wrote it and Barbra Streisand sang it (way to pander to the queer crowd, though). But in good, Orwellian fashion, you've managed to overlook Christians being "trumped" for saying mean things about Muslims and homosexuals, and Richard Warman's painstaking efforts to root out celler-dwelling sieg-Heilers on your behalf. And let's not even get into Salman Hossain of Filthy Jewish Terrorists fame "trumping" the Jews.
Fanny Brice said it best, "Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade."
As Liza Minnelli once said, "Life is a cabaret, old chum, come to the cabaret."
Update: As always, Steyn says it best:
After 40 years of "human rights" fetishization, Jews are more equal than a penniless white supremacist posting to the Internet from his mum's basement. Congratulations, Bernie. That worked out well. Now you're beginning to get the picture, why not get off the book-burning team and stand for real freedom? The Canadian state won't help you against Salman Hossain. Free speech will. Jews prosper when they stand with liberty, not when they form malign alliances with state bullies that always prove short-sighted and self-defeating.As Eliza Doolittle said, "Loverly."
Update: Do you suppose Bernie didn't refer to Barbra by name but used the distancing mechanism of "Fanny Brice" because he didn't want to sound too, you know, gay (the thinking being something like "I'm up for a pander, but let's not get carried away and give people the wrong impression")?
