Lapin: Gay Men Attracted to Manly, Rugged Muslim Terrorists

Daniel Lapin is the Christian right’s favorite rabbi. Where most Jewish people would be appalled by views that can only be described with the phrase “you gotta be fucking kidding me,” the Christian fundamentalists love him for espousing those very same views. Like this steaming pile of stupid:

Asked by host Tony Perkins why “the left” favors Islam, Rabbi Daniel Lapin explained there is a sexual dimension to it which, in turn, explains why young women are drawn to terrorist organizations like ISIS.

In audio captured by Right Wing Watch, Lapin began by explaining traditional gender roles, before stating that “There are countless studies showing that feminine-type behavior produces an excess of estrogen in men and vice versa.”

He then explained how “leftism” has feminized America.

“Today, after a 30- or 40-year epidemic of leftism that has swept its sordid stain across America, we’ve become much more feminized and we are attracted to the masculine strength and brutality of Islam,” he said. “This is the girl in the high school being attracted to the bad, tough guy and that’s really what’s happening.”

Calling it irrational, Lapin continued, “When people are sexually attracted you see irrational behavior. On a spiritual level, the feminized American left, show business, politicians, particularly academia, all the people who love Islam, when Christianity and Judaism are exactly the reverse.”

He referred to other people as irrational. That’s the fucking punchline.

    So, why isn’t the left attracted to the masculine strength of the Christian right? Is it because all those men spouting how it’s the man’s role to lead his wife and family and run the country are really pussy whipped wimps?

  • ambassadorfromverdammt

    Kind of makes one wonder what kind of creature Lapin is sexually attracted to, doesn’t it.

  • dugglebogey

    When men start giving lectures on whom other men are attracted, I figure it’s because they have intimate knowledge. Obviously gay if that’s what you spend your time thinking about.

    ” “…we are attracted to the masculine strength and brutality of Islam,” he said.”

    What’s this ‘we’ shit, exactly? Someone’s making a lot of claims about what other people agree with him on.

  • http://en.uncyclopedia.co/wiki/User:Modusoperandi Modusoperandi

    Yeah! He’s right! Wusses love Islam for it’s masculine strength and brutality! Real Men love Christianity and Judaism for their feminine weakness and gentleness!

    Wait, that didn’t come out right.

     

    In any event, we need to make America manly again, so that people will flock back to the feminine girlishness of Christianity and Judaism.

    Wait, that didn’t come out right.

    Asked by host Tony Perkins why “the left” favors Islam….

    Because wanting all people’s equal rights and liberties to be respected is “favoring” Islam. As well as persecuting Christians.

    Daniel Lapin is the Christian right’s favorite rabbi.

    So he’s the token “Judeo” in “Judeo-Christianity”?

    I’ve heard people in bear communities joke about an interest in Turkish oil wrestling, but not muslim terrorists. “Gays like muslim terrorists” comes from the same clowns who say “liberal fascism” and “atheist satanists”.

    ““Today, after a 30- or 40-year epidemic of leftism that has swept its sordid stain across America”

    Seems more as though we’ve had a 30-year epidemic of Reaganomics staining America, dumbass.

    “When people are sexually attracted right-wing fundamentalists you see irrational behavior.”

    “all the people who love Islam, when Christianity and Judaism are exactly the reverse.”

    Oh, by all means, tell me what I believe. I’ll tell you; I don’t like beliefs that condemn people to eternal suffering. There are people in all three religions who believe that; then there are some people in all three religions who explicitly do not believe that.

    Lapin:

    Guy can’t even count to zero. How sad is that?

  • busterggi

    Rabbi Lapin clearly has not heard the enrapt gushing of the Christian right over Putin.

  • mudskipper

    So does this mean Christianity and Judaism are femine? And if so, why aren’t they swooning over that manly Islam?

    I’m so confused.

  • Synfandel

    Daniel Lapin is the Christian right’s favorite rabbi.

    I had to read that twice. I subconsciously translated “lapin” from French and ended up with “Daniel Lapin is the Christian right’s favorite rabbit.”

  • Synfandel

    Isn’t Islam Arabic for submission, as in “voluntary submission to the will of God?” That doesn’t sound all testosterony. It’s more yin than yang.

    Don’t scoff! RWW lost half its Special Ops team bringing in that audio, not counting the interrogator who had two fingers bitten off setting up the waterboarding!

  • Marie the Bookwyrm

    So, was it the left that was swooning over ‘manly, rugged’ Vladimir Putin? I don’t think so.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    Today, after a 30- or 40-year epidemic of leftism that has swept its sordid stain across America, …

    So this epidemic may have begun while Ronald Raygun was president? Interesting.

    @3: “When men start giving lectures on whom other men are attracted”…. *Facepalm*. From the link (my emphasis)”…Rabbi Daniel Lapin explained there is a sexual dimension to it which, in turn, explains why YOUNG WOMEN are drawn to terrorist organizations.” Dugglebogey must have done great on the Reading Comprehension portion of his SAT’s.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    Right, dan. Because Lapin’s point was just so coherent, all you have to do is read it and it all makes perfect sense.

    Read the OP again, dan4; your own reading comprehension’s at fault. Lapin is claiming that America has been “feminized” by the Left:

    He then explained how “leftism” has feminized America.

    “Today, after a 30- or 40-year epidemic of leftism that has swept its sordid stain across America, we’ve become much more feminized and we are attracted to the masculine strength and brutality of Islam,” he said.

    “We” should of course include Americans of all genders and sexual orientations, but there’s little doubt that by “we”, the rabbi means heterosexual men–who’ve been “feminized” (read: weakened) by liberalism.

  • StevoR

    So Rabbi Daniel Lapin thinks the Jihadist terrorists are masculine and sexually appealing then? Funny, the way I see these mucky pigs backsides is as murderous pathetic cowards who claim they want to be martyred for their cause yet constantly run and hide behind their own women and children and who fight dirty with hostages and attacking weak, non-military targets instead.

    I think they are anything but appealing -indeed the only thing less appealing than them is this Rabbi and his fuck-witted argument and comments here. How did this piece of porcine excrement get to be a Rabbi – which is supposed to mean wise teacher notblitrhering dropkick?

  • StevoR

    Typo. Make that “.. wise teacher ^ not blithering dropkick.”

    Incidentally If these Jihadist maly manly rugged bravehero men / mucky pigs backsides really want to martyr themselves so badly then, for all Allah’s virgins, why do they run and hide and not just gather together in a convenient bit of desert somewhere (by-stander and hostage free) and let us know they want their martyrdom pronto? I’m sure we’d happily oblige them if they did. Win-win.

  • StevoR

    PS. For the hard of reading comprehension – and, yes, Raging bee that does mean you – the pigs arses referred to in my two comments (#22 & 21) above refer specifically and ONLY to actual Jihadist terrorists and do NOT apply to anyone beyond that very small and awful bunch of scumbags. They most definitely do NOT include all Muslims or Iranians or Arabs. (Again note for Raging bee that would be three separate and distinct groups I’m talking about here not tow, not one, not five but three.)

    This is really axiomatic and shouldn’t need saying but, sigh, it seems for some here it does need saying because theyseem incapable of comprehending plain english. (*Cough* Raging bee, *cough*!)

    I guess I’m going to be THAT guy, but nothing in Lapin’s statements or the article Ed drew from referenced gay men.

    In fact, it specifically stated in the first sentence of the quote “young women“.

    Yes, Lapin is still a nutjob and what he said it bullshit, but lets not add misleading titles.
