    Peter Tatchell defended Owen Jones' TV walk-off - adding ISIS have a 'pathological hatred' of gay people and security should be stepped up

    "The line of questioning put to Owen Jones would never have been put to a black or Jewish person if one of their venues had been attacked in this way."

    There is a thread on this forum asking how are left wingers going to respond to the fact this attack was perpetrated by a Muslim. In addition there clearly needs to be a thread on how are people going to respond to the fact the victims were lgbt. Some quite "normal" people seem to be too happy to just dismiss the possibility (A very high probability) of the attack being a hate crime against lgbt and I bet there are a load of right wing Christian or otherwise people who share sympathy with the ISIS line on gay people and are going to act as apologists for ISIS on that angle of the attack.

    When you said otherwise people were you talking about mainstream muslims? Because there's boatloads of positive tweets about the attack from them. Just like Paris, Brussels...etc.
