They Shoot Homos Don’t They?: More on Obama’s War on Russian Homophobia
Trigger Warning: jumbled post, illiberal, derogatory terms for child rapists, gay face comparisons.
I remember seeing an old article in The Exile which featured a picture of a half naked boy pole dancing in a Moscow club. The caption said something sardonic about the great Western freedom to gay pole dancing finally coming to Russia. Now I have to wonder, what happened to that boy? What happened to that pole?
If you’ve read any of the news in the last few days, you’d be aware that Russia is on the verge of a Homo Holocaust. Is Russia the new Nazi Germany? CNN seriously wants to know. Remember when they closed all those gay clubs and bars and saunas in Moscow? Only through the subversive efforts of a White Rose-like internet organization has this website remained online:
I’ve noticed a lot of outraged people on the internet remark that the Russian law against distributing homosexual propaganda to minors has a lot of support from the Russian public. The implication isn’t that this a popular ruling in Russia and it would be a serious violation of another country’s sovereignty to meddle with it, but that we need to do something not only about Putin and the Russian government but the majority of the Russian people as well. Listen up Russians, the largely uniformed and easily swayed American public is coming over there to teach you a lesson about tolerance and freedom. Get ready. We’re coming over.
These same people scoff at the notion of homosexual propaganda while happily consuming endless news stories about gay marriage which is relevant to about 5% (or less) of the population.
Perhaps when Russians think about homosexual propaganda and minors they associate it with atrocious shit like this because before the revelations of sexual abuse came out these two chomos were in the news and the article looked like this. Once the story of abuse came out, instead of publish a retraction of the original, positive article saying they had no idea the adoptive parents were pedophiles, the news site simply took it down.
Here is another article on the new Russian Homo Holocaust. It was published by The New Republic which is owned by a gay Facebook billionaire who kind of looks like the guy behind that Kony 2012 thing. His husband is an investment banker and Democratic politician. There are three suggested articles at the bottom of the page, one of which is titled The Rise of Russia’s Gun Nuts. Are they seriously trying infer that Russians are just Republicans who have a weird alphabet?
As one of the other suggested articles is about Snowden, I can’t help but think that this is simply the result of a software function. After all, how many self described Progressives and leftists are now talking about Russia’s rank bigotry and the need for us to do something instead the Snowden case and what it says about civil liberties in the USA.
