A Couple of Defectives

A gay and transsexual couple from Russia hate that country’s anti-gay laws so much that they have defected… to ISIS.

The pair claimed that they had suffered persecution and abuse from family and locals in the home in Kamchatka region in the extreme east of Russia.

They hoped they would be welcomed if they went to Syria after watching an ISIS recruitment video online.

The source on this seems pretty dubious; not Chinese newspaper dubious, but enough to advise caution. Still, it’s not completely implausible. After all, Queers for Palestine is a thing.

What did Hillary do for oppressed gays while Secretary of State?

When the immediate past Secretary of State first announced her candidacy for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, only a handful of my Facebook friends indicated their support for Mrs. Clinton, almost all of them gay.

But, what precisely has the former First Lady done for gays?  In her eight years in the Senate, did she work to repeal the relics of her husband’s administration, the Defense of Marriage Act or Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell?  (And by working, I mean, not just indicating her opposition to these laws, but actually taking action, lobbying her fellow legislators, pressing her party’s leadership to push repeal.)

And then in her four years as Secretary of State when she–and her supporters–boasted that she was the most-traveled Secretary of State, breaking travel records, among the many countries she visited, she surely visited some countries which oppressed gays.  When meeting with the leaders of those lands, did she ever discuss their treatment of our fellows and press them to change their policies?

And did the leaders of the various American gay organizations press her to act on behalf of our oppressed fellows?

Am I the only one asking these questions?

Just asking.

UPDATE:  As per the comments below, seems that Mrs. Clinton did raise the issue of anti-gay policies in Uganda with that nation’s leader President Yoweri Museveni in her summer 2012 swing through Africa.

Wealthy Gay Tory Running for Mayor of London

Not sure if there is such a things as a British conservative as the Tories are all-in on Anthropogenic Global Warming, socialized health care, gun control, and unlimited immigration (legal and otherwise). It appears the only difference between the Tories and Labour is that the Tories favor lower taxes on the wealthy. However, even in Britain, its apparently a stigma to admit to being conservative, especially a gay conservative. But nevertheless, one has stepped forward to offer his candidacy for one of the highest profile jobs in British Government short of Prime Minister. His personal life sounds pretty messy, but for what it’s worth, Ivan Massow is in the running for mayor of London.

Also, Mr. Massow finds the Tory Party most welcoming.

“Our LGBT group is bigger than all the other groups for all the other parties put together. They [the Conservatives] are the gayest party there is! And I think we have the most gay MPs as well.”

It would be an interesting dynamic to see the Tories becoming Britain’s gay party as the opposition Labour party goes all-in for the Mohammedans; considering the attitude of British Mohammedans vis-a-vis homosexuality.

Obama Regime Panders to Gay Progs by Creating Useless Postion

Because there are no serious diplomatic or international issues to tend to, the Obama/Kerry State Department is able to indulge its social justice whims by creating a special envoy for sexual minorities.

Randy Berry, currently the consul general in the Netherlands, will promote human rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals, Secretary of State John Kerry said.

“Defending and promoting the human rights of LGBT persons is at the core of our commitment to advancing human rights globally — the heart and conscience of our diplomacy,” Kerry said in a statement.

His job is going to amount to giving speeches in front of people who think that LGBT Rights are a serious human rights issue in which he will tell them that “LGBT Rights are a serious human rights issue.”

“But what about the gays slaughtered by the Iranian Regime Obama is desperate to sign a treaty with?” you may ask, to which the Obama Regime will reply, “Shut up, birther!”

This is what you get when your country is ruled by adolescents who are only interested in looking cool in front of the other adolescents.

Religious Fanatics Still Murdering Gays; Gay Left Still Completely Indifferent

Pro Tip: Should you find yourself being thrown off the top of a building for being gay, the last words echoing in your ears are not going to be “Jesus Loves You.”

We reported a few weeks back how ISIS and its “violent extremism based on a warped view of Islam” had been executing gay men by throwing them off of tall buildings.

And it looks like they’re still at it, but now with reports of these savages beating to death one of the victims after he survived the death plunge:

And yet, the Gay Left hates Chris Kyle more for killing those savages.

French Gays Wise Up, Turn to the Right

Posted by V the K at 2:00 pm - January 28, 2015.
Filed under: Gays in Other Lands

French gays have begun abandoning the socialist left in favor of the far right National Front party, mainly out of enlightened self-interest.

An insight into the phenomenon comes from Patrick McCarthy, a young gay blogger who lives in Bordeaux. ‘Up until 2005, Bordeaux was a very gay-friendly city,’ he says. ‘Same-sex couples could openly walk down the street holding hands without any problems. However, in the space of two months, five gay men were murdered in the city. The blame was put on Bordeaux’s Muslim community since some of these hate crimes were carried out by people of Arabic origins.’

French gays have come to realize two very important things: 1. The Right is not a threat to them, 2. The Left will do absolutely nothing to protect them from violent Mohammedans.

Maybe someday American gays will wise up and realize that the Christian Right boogeyman the left uses to scare them into voting Democrat is likewise no threat to them; and they will realize the Left’s policies are far more harmful.

How to completely lose perspective in 15 days, the French way:

French court convicts three over homophobic tweets, in case hailed as a ‘significant victory’ by LGBT rights campaigners

The People Obama Says Aren’t Islamic Just Murdered Two Gay People Because Islam Forbids Homosexuality

Remember, kids, Hillary says we need to “empathize” with these people.

And the LGBTQRZX$$$ left will express 0.000000000000001% of the outrage they expend for Christians who don’t want to bake cakes for gay weddings over this.

Maybe Obama should send Cat Stevens over to play guitar for them.

While Liberals Fret Over “Torture,” Islamists Murder Gays

Posted by V the K at 10:40 am - December 10, 2014.

While sanctimonious liberals like Diane Feinstein and John McCain expressed their outrage that some Mohammedan terrorists were forced to wear diapers and deprived of sleep,  the Mohammedan terrorists whose comfort concerns them so much apparently did this

The Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria on Tuesday posted photographs appearing to show jihadists throw a “gay” off a rooftop and then stoning him to death.

“The Islamic court in Wilayet al-Furat decided that a man who has practised sodomy must be thrown off the highest point in the city, and then stoned to death,” read a statement accompanying the images.

I guess I care as little about the humiliation of Mohammedan terrorists as the left does about conservatives who were harassed by Obama’s IRS, or the 300 Mexicans and 2 border agents killed with guns the Obama administration supplied to Mexican drug cartels.

And I would bet some lefty troll is reading this and thinking, “OK, Islamists stoning gay people to death is pretty bad; but Christians refusing to bake cakes for gay weddings is equally bad.”

Who disapproves of homosexuality?

Apple CEO, Tim Cook, has come out as the first openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

“Let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me,” he wrote in a column in Bloomberg Businessweek.

Congratulations, Tim! And it’s great to see you acknowledge, along the way, how America has changed and become gay-positive over the last several decades:

The world has changed so much since I was a kid. America is moving toward marriage equality, and the public figures who have bravely come out have helped change perceptions and made our culture more tolerant…

Part of social progress is understanding that a person is not defined only by one’s sexuality, race, or gender.

Although it’s not so great, Tim, that you still couldn’t stop yourself from playing the Gay Victim card like a drama queen:

Being gay has given me…a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with…

…there are laws on the books in a majority of states that allow employers to fire people based solely on their sexual orientation. There are many places where landlords can evict tenants for being gay…

I challenge GP’s readers to post in the comments, any examples of U.S. / State “laws on the books” that positively or specifically authorize “employers to fire people based solely on their sexual orientation.”

As for the bit about landlords and tenants: It’s also known as freedom of association, Tim. It’s a good thing because *you* get to have it as well; or at least you *should* get to have it (I am aware that the State of California unfortunately denies everyone that freedom).

All of this got me wondering: How do Americans compare to the rest of the world, in attitudes toward gays/homosexuality? Pew Research has the answer (hat tip, Zero Hedge):

Note how, in the above list of 40 countries for 2013, all of the Islamic or Muslim-majority countries were at 78% disapproval or higher (Egypt at 95%). Compared to 37% or much less, for the U.S. and Western Europe (Spain at 6%). Fascinating.

Daily Beast Writer Frets That Gay Executions Make Obama’s Job Harder

While the American Gay Left works itself into a furious lather over people who don’t want to bake cakes for their weddings, Iran continues to execute gay people. (HT: Peter H.)

Two men, Abdullah Ghavami Chahzanjiru and Salman Ghanbari Chahzanjiri, were hanged in southern Iran on August 6, possibly for consensual sodomy.

The Daily Beast, of course, frets about the effect of these executions on the real victim: Barack Obama. Iranians murdering gay people (possibly) makes it so much harder for the Light Worker to achieve the all-important foreign policy legacy.

The Obama administration has been attempting a rapprochement with the Iranian regime. Fending off Iran hawks in Congress and the D.C. punditocracy, the administration has argued for a policy of constructive engagement, pursuing diplomacy over military action to halt Iran’s nuclear program. The execution of two gay men, while it may not be surprising, certainly doesn’t make that “engagement” any easier.

Dammit, Iran, stop killing gay people. You’re making things hard on Obama.

Obama Welcomes Brutal Homophobic Dictators to the White House

“Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself” – Barack Hussein Obama, 2008.

Your proposal is accepted.

The red carpet was rolled out for Equatorial Guinea’s Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who shot or jailed virtually all his political opponents, Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh, who threatened to ‘cut off the head’ of any homosexuals in the country and for Cameroon’s Paul Biya, who has the dubious honor of ranking 19th on author David Wallechinsky’s 2006 list of the world’s 20 worst living dictators.

And so far, not a peep from the HRC or GLAAD.

The Democrats’ Totally Gay Foreign Policy

Because Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John F. Kerry have done such a smashing job with US foreign policy and solved all the problems in the world… putting Al Qaeda on the run, restoring global respect for the United States, keeping Russia and China in check, containing Islamist terror, bringing peace throughout the Middle East …  Senate Democrats are proposing that the Administration move on to other matters of great importance.

The bill would establish a Special Envoy within the State Department, appointed by the President, to carry out the bill’s mandate. The Special Envoy would “direct all activities, policies, programs and funding relating to the human rights of LGBT people… for all bureaus and offices of the Department of State and in the international programs for all other Federal agencies….”

Under the law there would be a “global strategy requirement” such that within 180 days after enactment the Special Envoy must create a five-year global plan that will first “fully implement” President Obama’s 2011 Presidential Memorandum that first made LGBT the president’s foreign policy priority.

All other problems have been solved. So, let’s get on with the very important work of making American gays feel important so they’ll donate more money to the DNC.

BTW, if LGBT rights are such a big deal to the president, why is arming anti-gay Islamist rebels in Syria? Why does he treat the only country in the Middle East where gay people can enjoy the basic human right of not being put to death by the state for being gay — Israel — so shabbily? Why does he support the anti-gay Islamist Hamas regime?

Something’s not right about this. It’s almost like his rhetoric doesn’t match his actions at all.

Finland Issues Tom of Finland Stamps

Debated whether to insert the image and then decided… um… No. But you can see it here.

The Finnish postal service, is releasing commemorative stamps featuring the art of Tom of Finland, or Touko Laaksonen (1920-1991). Laaksonen remains a towering and iconic figure in the gay art scene. His sketches, often explicit, were unapologetic depictions of gay sex and relationships. Laaksonen’s subjects were almost always muscle-bound, handsome figures, often bursting out of their clothes. His work, a meditation on masculinity, was also heavy on leather fetish imagery.

Given the Democrat Party’s ceaseless gay-pandering, (like Obama’s recent choice for an openly gay clergyman to deliver the prayer at Easter breakfast) I expect that a similar set of Robert Mapplethorpe stamps will be issued here before too long. I just hope they’re the self-adhesive kind. Nobody wants to lick that.

Ghey colonists who relocate to Mars no longer have to worry about being hanged, stoned, tossed off a tall building, or beheaded.

Martian colonization is a risky proposition. So risky, in fact, that a group of Islamic leaders in the United Arab Emirates issued a religious ruling saying Muslims should not go to the Red Planet. The General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment (GAIAE) ruling compares a Mars mission to suicide, and says that those who attempt it can expect the same consequences in the afterlife.

The threat of Martian Christians praying for ghey folk — which, according to the Ghey Left is exactly and equally as evil as executing them — will, unfortunately, remain

How Teh Gheys Could Make Things Awkward for the Russian Government

Russia Protest icon

I very much like this suggestion from AoSHQ Guest Blogger 2nd Amendment Texan, but it may call for a degree of subtlety that the activist gay community has not previously demonstrated.

Since there is real danger of being arrested in Russia right now for showing any obvious signs or symbols of gay pride, Russian gays, gay supporters, and free speech advocates of every stripe could adopt the “Our army is the army of liberation for all workers in the world” image, a famous WWII Russian Army propaganda postcard. It depicts a Russian red army soldier liberating German-occupied land, with a grateful peasant giving the Russian solider a kiss directly on the mouth. In the spirit of the anti-communist Poles utilizing “2+2=4”, the protesters in this arena could adopt this classic icon – well known in Russia – as their unofficial logo.

What will the Russian government do? Claim that a 75 year old, well loved Russian iconic image is and was always a symbol of gay equality? That the state sponsored communist artist, Victor Koretsky, was being subversive? While we should put nothing past a state that wants to exert power over a minority group, I suspect that utilizing this image will allow protesters to be heard while also allowing the Russian government to save some face and not enforce the law on those displaying the Koretsky image. As seen with its declining to prosecute anti-gay crimes, the Russian government knows how to pick and choose what to prosecute and what to ignore.

I would wager Throbert has an opnion on this matter.

Obama: Pandering, Politicizing, and Passive-Aggressive Diplomacy

President Obama will not attend the Sochi Olympics, but to appease his wealthy gay liberal donors show the Russians how miffed he is with recent anti-gay statements and legislation, he is sending lesbian tennis player Billie Jean King (because tennis is such a huge Winter Olympic sport), lesbian hockey player Caitlin Cahow, and Janet Napolitano as part of the US Olympic delegation.

[Edit: Deleted a line about Obama hiding behind Bille Jean King's pantsuit because it would have offended the easily offended.]

I love hockey, and amateur sports in general. But I lost interest in the Olympics a long time ago; one reason is because they have become so hyper-politicized; and the coverage doesn’t focus on the competition, it’s just one profile after another of an athlete overcoming something-or-other to compete at the games. Turning the U.S. Winter Olympic Team into an extension of the Obama Permanent Campaign and Minority Victims Perpetual Grievance Coalition just further politicizes sport; which is something we associate with totalitarian regimes, not a Constitutional Republic.

Now it’s Greek bug-chasers

UPDATE: (thanks Peter in the comments): The WHO has reversed itself on this:

“The [offending] sentence should read, ‘Half of the new HIV cases are self-injecting and out of them few are deliberately inflicting the virus’.”

“This was just a gross editing error for which the WHO apologises,” said its spokesman, Gregory Hartl.

Good for the Greeks! Now, if the other reports about bug chasers in the UK and the US have been retracted or disproved, that would also be interesting and please let us know in the comments.


As if to follow-on to my earlier post, “UK bug chasers: America’s future?”, comes this sad report from the World Health Organization, page 112:

Case study: countries’ experiences of financial crisis – Greece

Suicides rose by 17% between 2007 and 2009 and to 25% in 2010, according to unofficial 2010 data (398). The Minister of Health reported a further 40% rise in the first half of 2011…Homicide and theft rates have doubled. HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with *about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month* and faster admission on to drug-substitution programmes. Prostitution has also risen…

Emphasis added. In pursuing the cradle-to-grave Welfare State, Europe has created a society of smothering government regulation, taxes, “benefits” and controls where:

  • People can no longer get ahead, or even survive, in the private economy.
  • People can survive if they qualify for government-paid benefits.

Is it any wonder that economic crisis results? And that, in the midst of the crisis, some people will do anything to qualify for government-paid benefits?

To escape the trap, Europe must do the opposite. It must dismantle the Welfare State, creating a society of freedom where most people can’t get money from government, and can survive, or even get ahead, in the private economy.

Gays not safe…in Dearborn, MI

From New American Media (via Creeping Sharia in Bruce’s Twitter stream):

Arab Americans comprise more than 40 percent of Dearborn’s population, which according to a 2010 U.S. Census report was 98,153.

Two Arabs from Dearborn said in parts of Beirut, Lebanon it can be less difficult for an Arab to be openly gay than it’s here. Lebanon is one of the few Arab countries on the forefront of organizing for LBGT rights…

Ryan ["a 23-year-old gay Arab from Dearborn"] says people who support gay Arabs often fear speaking in support of them publicly because conservative Arabs and Muslims will commit hate crimes, or incite riots against them…

Ramozotti ["the executive director of Al-Gamea"] has been threatened because of his sexual orientation…

The article is mainly about gay Arabs in Dearborn – but Arab or white, I don’t care (plus, I doubt that white gays have extra safety there). By the way, guess what Middle Eastern country is even more gay-progressive than Lebanon? Israel.

UMM, RELATED? Newtown, CT (Sandy Hook) residents have been applying for gun permits in record numbers. How could that be related? Simply this: An armed populace is a polite populace. To let law-abiding people have guns (which wrong-doers are going to have anyway) is to let law-abiding people defend themselves from violence. Newtown or Dearborn doesn’t matter. Neither does straight or gay or lesbian.
