While the Democrat Left – LGBT Coalition in America are so desperate to illustrate oppression that they resort to fake hate crimes (see below), spreading total bullshirt accusations that the VP wants to electrocute gay kids, and crying that for a Christian to decline to bake a cake for a gay wedding is a million times worse than anything Hitler ever did, there may actually be a genocide against gay people unfolding in Chechnya, and none of them care.
Chechen police are reportedly urging parents to kill their gay children, according to survivor testimony from one man held in a “gay torture camp” in the country.Authorities have been telling parents of gay men to “sort it out” or the state will intervene, the victim, who has not been identified, claimed.
The latest account of systematic LGBT persecution comes just a month after Chechen authorities allegedly rounded up more than 100 men who were suspected to be gay. Many were tortured and at least four are alleged to have been killed, according to a Russian newspaper and human rights campaigners
Now granted, the reports are very sketchy and unreliable. But that’s sort of the point, if there were rumors of genocide in other countries, wouldn’t they be worth investigating?
Probably because it would be happening in a Muslim territory under a devout Muslim leader; it would be bad for the Coalition of the Oppressed to point out that the Oppressed Muslims want to murder the Oppressed LGBT’s. And it’s difficult to find a “Bash Trump” angle to it, so it is politically unimportant.
I seem to recall reports of gay oppression in Uganda getting a fair amount of coverage (but then, that provided an opening to bash Christians).
