George Clooney is calling for a boycott of Brunei-owned luxury hotels because that nation has an anti-gay death penalty. Did I miss all the protests against Iran for having similar laws? Nope, Hollywood, almost all the media and other Democrats actively supported Barack Obama when he and his administration gave Iran hundreds of billions while they continually pledge death to America.
Why aren’t Clooney and other Democrats supporting Trump for his boycotts and sanctions of Iran instead of condemning him for pulling out if they are so concerned about LBGT rights?
Homosexuality is against the law in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Sharia, the Islamic legal system, condemns homosexuality as a crime worthy of death. The Iranian criminal threatens gay individuals with lashes and the death penalty. Men always face the death penalty if they were the “passive” partner in a homosexual act. According to the underlying logic, such men behave like women, making them all the more unnatural. The “active” partner faces the death penalty under certain conditions, and otherwise receive 100 lashes. Women receive a sentence of 100 lashes in all cases.
After President Obama issued executive orders forcing schools to allow boys and men to invade girls’ and women’s safe space, North Carolina passed sensible bathroom laws that most Americans would support. Democrats throughout the U.S. protested and demanded boycotts. Somehow, they didn’t also boycott Iran, Cuba and other countries that would never allow same sex bathrooms.
