Kerry likens Uganda anti-gay law to Nazism, apartheid
The Times of India / Agence France-Presse ^ | February 27, 2014

WASHINGTON: US secretary of state John Kerry on Wednesday compared tough new anti—gay laws enacted in Uganda to anti—Semitic legislation in Nazi Germany or apartheid in South Africa.

"You could change the focus of this legislation to black or... Jewish, and you could be in 1930s Germany or you could be in 1950s, 60s apartheid South Africa," the top US diplomat told a small group of reporters.

On Monday, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed a bill into law which holds that "repeat homosexuals" should be jailed for life, outlaws the promotion of homosexuality and requires people to denounce gays.

"What has happened in Uganda is atrocious, and it presents all of us with an enormous challenge, because LGBT rights are human rights. It's that simple," Kerry told reporters.

"The signing of this anti—homosexuality bill is flat—out morally wrong."

Referring to anti—Semitism in Nazi Germany and apartheid in South Africa, the top US diplomat said "it was wrong there egregiously, in both places, and it is wrong here."

But he also warned that discrimination against gays was "bigger than just Uganda" saying there were currently 78 other countries in which "you have these laws that are just contrary to human rights and contrary to human nature."

Referring to the spread of anti—gay legislation, Kerry said "it's not just an African problem, it's a global problem, and we're wrestling with it."

Activists working for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights had pushed Museveni to block the legislation.

Want to hear some irony? Homosexuality is against the law in India, too! As well as EVERY Islamic state that I'm aware of. Why isn't Secretary Kerry decrying that?

Of he says that.

To a commiescum leftard, everything that isn’t in full lockstep with commiescum leftardic talking points is automatically nazi.

To a leftard, the only governance types that exist are commiescumism = good and naziscumism/fascism = bad. There are no other options their minds are capable of comprehending.

Uganda's anti-Sodomite law is In The Mahnuh Of Jenjis Kaaan. Probably worse than spending Christmas in Cambodia in 1968.

Oh, did you know John Kerry served in Vietnam?

Did he mention “Jenjis Kahn” (his pronunciation, so he’s got to be correct, being an elite and all)?

We have an implosion going on with the economy in desperate straights, health care destruction and foreign policy in shambles and the incompetents focus on homosexuals and peripheral nonsense to deflect it

And OUR MEDIA plays right along.

I cannot believe he represents us overseas. I hope other nations understand that there are two Americas and he doesn’t represent the sane half.

By the time Kerry, Obama and the homosexual lobby finish their howling and ranting against Uganda, they will have turned the entire continent of Africa against the USA. Most, if not all, African nations are of like mind with Uganda,
