Russia accuses EU of ‘aggressively promoting’ homosexuality
EurActiv/Reuters ^ | 24 January 2014 | (Adrian Croft)

Russia, caught in a pre-Sochi Olympic uproar over gay rights, accuses the European Union in a new report of trying to enforce “an alien view” of homosexuality on other countries.

The accusation is contained in a 153-page “Report on the human rights situation in the European Union”, in which Moscow hits back at human rights criticism it regularly faces from the West by listing what it sees as rights failings in EU nations. […]

“This is particularly evident in their aggressive promotion of the sexual minorities’ rights. Attempts have been made to enforce on other countries an alien view of homosexuality and same-sex marriages as a norm of life and some kind of a natural social phenomenon that deserves support at the state level,” the English version of the new report says. …

When you’re rooting for a Russian Oligarch against your own society, something has gone awry, no?

Putin’s biggest critics are either Gay, Globalist, or both...

Scary all the folks on FR supporting the QueerEU in Ukraine.

“...the queer EU in Ukraine.”

No one here is supporting queer folk in Ukraine. They are supporting liberty, period.

Putin is a pshycopath. He has people murdered. No one here, on FR, is supporting Putin.

Incredible. I never thought that we’d see the day when the Russians get it right and we get it wrong. It really is a topsy-turvy world.

There might be a few critics of Putin who are wondering how a guy who came from nothing, has been a civil servant his whole life, and is somehow worth (reportedly) in the 40-70 billion dollars range.

Really? Read a few more Putin threads. If he’s not being supported, he is getting major kudos from a particular quarter of FR.

That is true. It’s a sad day when many of us would acknowledge that an evil tyrant like Putin makes more sense than our own president, but, unfortunately, we are at that point now, at least as it pertains to his views on homosexuality. When Christians who refuse to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual wedding are prosecuted by their own government we can assume our country, as we have known and loved it, has left us.

Well not to rush to Putin’s defense, but I see a whole passel of FReepers is favor of selling America’s industrial base to a billion Chinese, who seem completely prepared to replace America.

Who on our side, is for building up America?

Who? Who is for building up America?

Putin isn’t selling out to China. He is merely advocating what he sees, as patriotism.

America needs more of that.

Patriotism.

America first.

I support neither. Clinton helped the EU stir things up in that region (after Bush I promised Russia no such thing would happen); and now everything Reagan achieved, never mind WWII, is undone.

There isn’t a whole bunch of queerness in Ukraine. Putin gets right the idea that sex should be about ADULT relationships. But otherwise, he’s no friend of the U.S. or Russia. The fact that people think that homosexual and heterosexual stuff shouldn’t be thrown around in public is tyrannical is twisted at the very least, and says a whole lot more about the outrage than about Putin. I mean, it’s somehow wrong for kids to engage in sodomite behavior? I think so, but the people outraged at Putin aren’t. What’s more this outrage is highly selective. If people were really consistent in their outrage, they would be pissed at Obama for making a bowing motion to the Saudi king, the same man who has ordered numerous executions to Saudi teens and adults caught in the homosexual act. Or if you wanted to be concerned about Putin, be concerned that people who wrote negative things about Putin such as Anna Stepanovna Politkovskaya, or Alexander Litvinenko, ended up dead (murdered) in gruesome and brutal manners shortly after their books were published, while people in the U.S. like Alex Jones, Glenn Beck, etc. make millions off of calling the government evil.

There may be some issues that FReepers agree with Putin on. Putin is right for wanting to protect children from the gay agenda; something we in the west, with our so-called democracies, have failed to do. Most FReepers probably don’t approve of some of methods he uses for enforcement. Overall, we can’t trust him. He kind of reminds me of Augustus, who wanted to restore Roman traditions, but was at his core a real tyrant.

Al-Qaeda types don't like faggots either, which obviously don't make them good guys...
