Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 06, 2014

Penalties for homosexuality, adultery and other sharia-law crimes in Brunei sparked a protest Monday in front of the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel and are expected to draw formal condemnation from the City Council. The Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel Bel-Air are owned by an arm of the Brunei government, which has come under widespread criticism since Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah last week announced the new criminal code based on sharia law. Several groups and prominent public figures have pledged to boycott the hotels until the country changes its laws or relinquishes its ownership. Ellen DeGeneres said on Twitter that she would not visit the hotels "until this is resolved." Jay Leno appeared at Monday's protest along with his wife, Mavis, who is on the board of the Feminist Majority, which has pulled its annual event from the hotel. "This is 2014, not 1814," Jay Leno said.

I read the entire article, harry, and I didn't see a single thing indicating any exploding heads, right wing or otherwise. In fact there is not a single word about a right wing outcry or protest to any response by outraged Americans.

WTF is this headline about, liar? Are right wingers under your skin so badly you have to lie to denigrate them?

Geez, get a life dude. Seriously. And learn to comprehend what you read. And don't make stuff up. And . . .

Can any of you lefties explain your fellow leftie's bizarre behavior with his made up headlines and imaginary scenarios?

I am glad they are protesting, Harry. Is my head 'exploding'?

What did he do that any other partisan hack hasn't when using thread headlines?

Lied.

There isn't a single word in that story about any right winger getting upset about the leftie's protest (or anything as far as that goes)

Others may do it as well, but I don't cotton to the "well everyone else does it" defense, especially when it is such a blatant lie as this one.

Fair enough. Yet, I don't know why you sound so surprised. That's all.

You have a point, especially considering the source of the headline.

Thanks!

"This is 2014, not 1814," Jay Leno said.

Christianity is the only one here that has changed in that time period, which is what I think he is thinking of, being the liberal he is.. Islam is the same as it was in 1814 as it is today.

How can the hollywood elite sip a mimosa while eating caviar under sharia law?

Is that kosher?

well, it is certainly no longer legal in this country for white christian racists to own slaves.

You're being liberal with your numbers boaz. ;)

Again the reason that this makes the news has nothing what so ever to do with racism/sexism/etc. It is about a viceroy defying the imperial dictates of the American empire.

You don't hear these same black shirts complaining when the Egyptian viceroy hands out the death penalty for having different religious views because the empire backed the military coup in the first place to do just that.

And yet none of these Hollywierd liberals seemed to protest when Obama sent Al-Nusra and ISIS heavy weapons and lethal miltech (the same groups funded by UAE SA Qatar etc) to impose Sharia Law in Syria, behead Christians, burn homosexuals alive, throw men without beards off 7 story buildings, beat women for showing too much ankle.

How do we know that the protesters are lefties?

I don't think Jay Leno considers himself to be a lefty.

According to an interview with Jay, he said: ""I'm not conservative. I've never voted that way in my life." He went on to say he considers himself a Democrat, but is fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

So, I would say he may not be a true lefty as he opposes big government and their control of our tax dollars, but he is a left leaning moderate Democrat.

That's how I've always perceived him to be.

BTW, I posted the story about Brunei a week ago when it first broke and it only lasted 2 days on the back page. Then Gracie posted it again and it lasted 4 days on the back page. Now we have Hollywood involved and a post with containing a blatant biased lie and it winds up on the front page.

Go figure.

About time the leftiy liberals were on the right side of something.

My great uncle was the head bellhop at the Bev Hotel for many years, he knew everybody and what they wanted. He retired after the ownership change. When I was a kid he would bring us the leftover Disneyland E tickets, we went there about once a month.

i think we need to incrementally impose sharia law here in america. but we need to do it step by step.

first step: impose sharia law on american politicians and their cronies.

imagine a bunch of senators and congressmen running around without any hands...

(they already act like they don't have any heads)
