‘Gays = Nazis’ – Russia


Russia Gays Putin Olympics

We’ve covered Russia’s anti-gay laws and their relation to the 2014 Sochi Olympics for quite a while, and the news just keeps getting worse. We even podcasted about it. Now the “gays are bad” rhetoric has gotten even worse.

In an interview with World Football Insider, the country’s World Cup chief chose some interesting words to defend the legislation, which bans “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations.”

Among other things, Alexey Sorokin put gays in the same category as Nazis.

“The Olympics and World Cup are not a stage for various views …,” he told the Internet publication. “Not for Nazis, not for any other ways of life.”

According to Russian law, homosexuality is equivalent to genocide. This logic makes no sense, even for any breed of idiot or bigot, and I’ll leave it at that.

    Thanks for making news comments even worse than porn comments, Mary.

    Just because you read it in Westboro’s field manual doesn’t make it true, Mary.

    The wartime propaganda worked so well in WWII they decided to just never tell the truth again. LOL! This is nonsense.

    you’re an idiot.

    Mary, you are an ill educated, bigot.To believe that homosexuality can be taught is just ridiculous

    as for Nazi’s, the pink triangle was hardly glowing support for homosexuality was it, or does that not fit into your prejudiced version of history?

    bigotry and idiocy are far more equivalent to national suicide, and it’s people like you who are holding the gun.

    Seriously? Its amazing how people like you confuse themselves and feel so threatened by something that is not threatening in the least. Open your mind a bit.
