Katty Kay, always worth a watch. Today she reported on Republican Roy Moore and looked like someone had just shoved a pineapple up her backside and she was desperately trying not to let on as she tried to control the pained surprise with tightly shut eyes, puffed out cheeks, a strangely immobile face, speaking through a mouth shut tight giving us her impression of a white person acting as an ‘inscrutable Oriental’.
After having done the obligatory pronouncement that Moore is basically guilty of historic sex abuse and then the obligatory link to Trump and the implication that he is also guilty of such things Kay then delved deeper to try and damn Moore for his personal opinions…he thinks homosexuality should be made illegal and that Muslims who refuse to accept the US constitution should not be allowed to serve in Congress.
A curious paradox…she, and her BBC anchor, railed against Moore and defended Muslims and yet most Muslims would have the same view on homosexuality as Moore….and of course see the Koran as a higher authority than any man-made law…such as the US constitution…so there is a question over where their loyalty would lie if it was a question of compromising their Islamic beliefs in order to comply with the Constitution. You can see that same conflict here as even ‘moderate’ Muslims say they will of course comply with British law…as long as it doesn’t conflict with their beliefs. The BBC of course saw little of concern when Tim Farron was pressured to leave the LibDem leadership due to being a religious ‘extremist’…or a Christian. If he’d been Muslim?
