Putin: Gay people will be safe at Olympics if they ‘leave kids alone’
Washington Post ^ | January 17, 2014 | By Kathy Lally

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin said Friday that gay people have nothing to fear in Russia as long as they leave children alone.

Putin met with a group of volunteers in the Olympic mountain venue at Krasnaya Polyana near Sochi on Friday to wish them success at the Games. During a question-and-answer session, a volunteer asked him about Russia’s attitudes toward gays, a subject that has provoked worldwide controversy, and Putin offered what was apparently meant to be a reassuring answer for visitors to the Olympics.

“One can feel calm and at ease,” he said. “Just leave kids alone, please.”

That phrasing — with its intimation that gays might prey on children — hardly seems the kind of guarantee sought by the United States and other Western governments and human rights activists.

Gay rights have become a contentious issue at the Olympics, which begin Feb. 7, because Russia passed a law last year prohibiting “propaganda of nontraditional sexual practices” among ­minors. . .

That’s not fair! The US Constitution give homosexuals the right to sodomize young boys. At least that’s what the Democrats say.

Putin raises the stereotype that gays are pediphiles. Liberal heads to start exploding in t-minus 10 ... 9 ... 8 ...

A guy from the KGB would know what the mentally deranged homosexuals are primarily going after.

Well, less than 1 in 10 KGBists were intelligence or counter-intelligence agent. It was a law-enrorcement agency in the first place.

I know one thing, the Russians take their ballet Seriously! There’s a huge scandal at the Bolshoi, after a scorned male dancer hired a thug ex-convict to throw acid in the face of the Bolshoi director because he and his ballerina girlfriend weren’t getting the parts they felt they deserved, and it’s headline news in Russia, with the media taking sides like our media does with politics, and the whole circus.

I love ballet, but my goodness!

(If you’re like most men, you don’t know ballet from mazurka, but someday when you’re bored, look up on You Tube Olga Lepeshinskaya, a Stalin-era prima ballerina, in a short ballet called Moszkowsky’s Waltz-amazing, and an example of the athletic, bravura style of Soviet-era Bolshoi. Ie, it’s nothing like your fluttery Giselles or regal Swan Lakes. Lepeshinskaya was Stalin’s favorite ballerina, even over the worshipped Galina Ulanova. I adore her style, and her big personality in such a tiny woman, and a mega-watt smile, all combined with utter physical fearlessness.)

“I think the best thing that can be done is that the media continue to shine a light on this issue,” said Norman Bellingham, former chief executive of the U.S. Olympic Committee.

SHOULD BE:

“I think the best thing that can be done is that the media continue to shine a light on this issue be activists for the pro-sodomy movement and recruit more young homosexuals for our cause,” said Norman Bellingham, former chief executive of the U.S. Olympic Committee.

I read this last night and had a crazy dream wherein the USA became the old USSR and we all moved to Russia. Is that where we are headed?

His pronouncement seems so reasonable, why would anyone protest that rational, and I dare say, sensible request? JUST LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE! How is that so difficult to understand?

If the Gay lobby is upset with that reasonable condition, what is/was, their intentions in Russia to begin with????

It’s a rhetorical question, to be sure.. I can’t believe I have to look to a despot, to speak for me on a commonsense issue like this..

The WaPoo raising the meme that Putin says all gays are pedophiles. It has to do with indoctrinating them into alternative lifestyles as minors. Indoctrination of America’s minors is nearly complete.

This nonsense of 8 year old crossdressers in American schools is a tra(ns)vesty.

Pink journalism pushing the homosexual agenda and whipping up hysteria against the Ruskies. Funny that.

Gays will never leave ANYONE alone. They seek approval from everyone and see everything as a potential hookup.

The Frankfurt School made the following 12 recommendations to adanvce its Critical Theory through Cultural Marxism — all of them calculated to undermine the foundations of society and create the dystopia we now see all around us:

 The creation of racism offences and hate speech laws.
 Continual change to create confusion (e,g., in school curricula).
 Masturbation propaganda in schools, combined with the homosexualization of children and their corruption by exposing them to child porn in the classroom.
 The systematic undermining of parental and teachers’ authority.
 Huge immigration to destroy national identity and foment future race wars.
 The systematic promotion of excessive drinking and recreational drugs.
The systematic promotion of sexual deviance in society.
 An unreliable legal system with bias against the victims of crime.
 Dependency on state benefits.
 Control and dumbing down of media.
 Encouraging the breakdown of the family.
 All all-out attack on Christianity and the emptying of churches.

Strange how in the land of the original communist revolution that Putin/Russia is making a stand against homosexuality while the West accepts, and in many places, celebrates it.

Now I’ve got to look up Frankfort School, because it sounds like what’s going on in the USA.
