Elton John rubbishes Vladimir Putin's claims he has 'gay friends'

Elton John has spoken out against Russia's ban on homosexual propaganda by dismissing Vladimir Putin's claims he is welcoming to gays and saying the law had legitimised homophobia.

The pop star's stinging attack come days after the Russian President claimed he had gay friends and praised the 'personal achievements' of homosexual celebrities like John whom he called 'extraordinary'.

In a 500-word statement, John said: 'What I heard reinforced all the media stories that have been circling since the propaganda bill became federal law: that vicious homophobia has been legitimised by this legislation and given extremists the cover to abuse people's basic human rights.

'Everyone shared stories of verbal and physical abuse - at work, in bars and restaurants or in the street - since the legislation came into force last June.'

The law has come under fire from human rights activists as Russia prepares to host the Winter Olympics next month.

During a visit to Moscow in December, John performed a concert at which he condemned the law, and said he was keen to gain a first-hand understanding of its effect on the LGBT community.

He added that he would welcome the chance to introduce Putin to gay Russians.

Elton John. Another useless tool who needs to go away permanently. Why does the UK export so many of these moonbat deviants?

Because of Little Richard, probably.

This is the difference between being gay and falling for the gay ideology as a useful idiot. It is how the Stokholm syndrom develops.

If a muslim beats another muslim in an airplane, a muslim might get up to stop it. But if a bunch of muslim whackos take over the crew, no one bats an eye and lets them fly into a building. Why? Because the ideology tricks into bringing up sympathies that are simply not there.

Yeah.

Thought so.

More accurately, Russia has not been besieged by homophiliacs. Hey Elton, if you don’t want to hear our opinions of your behavior, how about shutting up about who and what you do in bed in private?

Does anyone else remember that Elton John, before he “evolved,” said that a homosexual relationship was no place to raise children ?

The bill passed the Russian legislature UNANIMOUSLY.

If Elton wants to criticize a hate-filled government, why not protest the Muslim nations where homosexuals are executed? Last I heard, homosexuals were not executed for their behavior in Moscow. They just cannot advertise and/or promote their activity.

Feeling ostracized, Elton? No one stopped you from makin’ a VERY GOOD LIVING from your talents there in Russia or in the USA. We just aren’t interested in being asked or forced to endorse your sexual behavior.

At one point, he had male dancers dressed up like Boy Scouts at his show. Tells me a lot about the homosexual mindset and why it was always a spectacularly bad idea to open up the Boy Scouts to them. Scouting for Boys is now a very appropriate name for them.

I think that was just part of his ongoing strategy to win over simpletons in the west. Dopes that see a single issue like this a reason to admire and respect him, ignoring all the seriously troubling other things about him, like Russia’s continuing support of America’s enemies (Iran, North Korea, the Chicoms, Venezuela, Cuba, other communist-socialist dictatorships throughout latin America, Iraq under Saddam Hussein, etc, etc), his tyrannical leadership in Russia, his ‘silencing’ of political opponents inside Russia and out, plus his desire to reform the old Soviet Union (bullying of former SU satellite countries).

KGB Putin believes the COLLAPSE of the mass murdering communist Soviet Union was the “worst geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century”. He thinks Stalin “deserves” to have statues in his honor.

homophobia

Man, how I detest that word. We're not afraid of you and your pansy friends, Elton, we're repulsed by you. There's a big difference.

In a just world Elton John would’ve been denounced for that.
Its too bad Putin didn’t point to those images to promote this anti-propaganda law.

Whenever anyone voices an opinion about a group of people, in this case gays, and then attempts to soften that position by saying he has friends that are gay, he’s probably lying. If he’s not, it’s a real shitty way to treat your so-called friends. That’s sort of like praising Sammy Davis, Jr.’s talent, but still not allowing him to stay in the white part of town after the curtain goes down.

You have to admire Putin for unabashedly and without excuse promoting the advancement of his country. He drives Russia like an SOB.

Homos? Fine I suppose, okay, but they are not the way “forward” for any country. They do not produce a future. Tolerate them and try to build tomorrow around them.
