"Now this pinkwashing campaign is coming to the City University of New York. A pinkwashing conference is being sponsored by the Gay and Lesbian Studies Center at The Graduate Center on April 10-11, 2013."
Alan Dershowitz has written a pretty effective response to the latest tactic of Israel's enemies. You see, Israel is the only country in that region where gays can live freely and openly. Good, right? Wrong. You see, the pro-Palestinian crowd has turned it all around and is accusing Israel of "pink-washing" using the fact that gays are not persecuted to divert attention away from their supposed oppression of the Palestinians.
Here is how gays are treated in Iran:
No pink-washing there (pink cleansing, perhaps.)
I mind you that photo may be a bit dated. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims that there are no gays in Iran, which may be true if they have hanged them all. As for the other hell-holes that surround Israel, they subscribe to sharia law, which mandates a death sentence for homosexual acts.
But to point these things out amounts to "pink-washing" and that's bad.
And to think that City University of New York will be the scene of such an event put on by the Gay and Lesbian Studies Center (!!??!!) is pretty indicative of the logic of the left-to say nothing about the state of education in this country.
