Hannity And D’Souza: Why Are Gays Mad At Indiana But Silent On Sharia Law? (VIDEO)

Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday brought on conservative activist and convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza to dismiss the controversy over Indiana’s religious freedom law that may permit discrimination against gay people.

Hannity argued that the backlash to the bill was simply “selective political moral outrage” on the left.

“Gays and lesbians, they might disagree with me on gay marriage, or they might disagree with somebody — a religious person as it relates to their Christian views, but why are they so silent on the bigger issues of the day, which would be taking on radical Islamists?” Hannity asked, noting that gay people and women are mistreated under Sharia Law. “Virtual silence from these groups that are so outraged and indignant over a law that Bill Clinton supported in ’93 and Barack Obama supported.”

D’Souza then explained that opposition to the Indiana law “is a selective attack on Christianity.”

“Not only do you not see the left talking about gays and lesbians abroad, but even at home, you’ll rarely find homosexuals trying to force a Muslim baker to bake a cake for a gay wedding,” D’Souza said.

Hannity then asked why there hasn’t been “outrage as a group speaking out against Sharia law and women not being able to vote or drive in Saudi Arabia or not being able to leave their own homes without a male relative.”

“If they were to mount a strong attack on radical Islam and its treatment of gays and lesbians, that would strengthen American foreign policy,” D’Souza responded. “That would make the case for more U.S. involvement or intervention. They don’t want that.”

D’Souza pleaded guilty to violating federal campaign finance law last year and was sentenced to five years of probation.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
