Gay bashing in Amsterdam????

One would expect Cairo, or Istanbul, or Tehran...but Amsterdam????
At a fashion show to promote tolerance of gay people on April 30, a national holiday in Holland, celebrating the birthday of the late Queen Juliana, a group of ten Muslim youths dragged gay model Mike Du Pree down from the catwalk, beating him up and breaking his nose. A second model who tried to help out was also attacked.

I could find no reference to this beating on any of the gay news web-sites I checked, including, the Advocate, the Washington Blade as well as sites of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF). (I did searches on each of these sites for “Amsterdam.”) Why is it HRC is so eager to savage John McCain, yet reluctant to condemn real gay-bashing? And such gay-bashing (as our friend Chris Crain knows from first-hand experience) is a growing phenomenon in the Netherlands.
Thanks to Gay Patriot (a terrific blog) for publicizing this attack.

Should we be surprised that 'muslim' are at it again.

I can't stand muslims and this is another reason why.

They are still in the 1st century and should not be allowed to come here to Canada.

Case closed.

Gay bashing in Amsterdam? Well, that's what happens in Muslim countries...

Unfortunately, we in Canada are only just slightly behind the dutch in submitting to Islam.

Fred, I think it was Mark Steyn (maybe Ann Coulter) who pointed out that Amsterdam, while a haven for socially liberal behaviours, is only so in a certain quarter of the city; the rest is very, very, VERY Muslim and has been so for years. Cheers.

"While Europe Slept" -- good book by an American gay man who moved to Amsterdam a few years ago. He quickly realized that Holland is not the ultra-liberal society it once was. The Europeans in general have been very slow to acknowledge the problem and take steps to address it.

Right in the middle of the catwalk?

Jeez, that's bold. If I were a gay man in Amsterdam I'd be thinking this might be the time to get the hell out of Dodge.

Hell I'm not and I think if I lived in Amsterdam I'd see this as a a red flag..(pink flag?) to, say it with me, get the hell out of Dodge.

It seems that the Netherlands are full under control of muslims, also the Justice is applying muslim rules. It was one of the most progressive countries and now the people of that country accepts muslim predominance. Europe is going to loose its christian roots and the civil rights that have been gained during 200 years.
