As Russia continues to re-embrace its Christian Orthodox heritage and Capitalism, the Left is using Gay Rights as a proxy to demonize them. Personally as a Libertarian, I don’t agree with Russia’s gay laws. I give the Putin Regime props on their economic/fiscal policies but a thumbs down on personal liberty. But that is an internal matter for the Russian people and not my concern.
Obama is now engaged now on a Gay Rights crusade against Russia that is leading to Cold war level hate.. Meanwhile he says nothing about Gays being killed in Islamic countries.
What,” Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani was asked, “is [Islam’s] judgment on sodomy and lesbianism?”
“Forbidden,” he curtly pronounced. “Those involved in the act should be punished. In fact, sodomites should be killed in the worst manner possible.”
So what does Barack Obama have to say about that?
Cynically mounting his high horse last week in the cozy confines of Jay Leno’s late-night TV comedy program — a venue popular with his ill-informed admirers, one where hypocrisy won’t be noticed, much less challenged — the president declaimed, “I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate or are harmful to them.”
This was his purported human-rights rationale for canceling a summit meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, who in June signed an anti-gay law banning “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations.” Obama told Leno that “making sure people are treated fairly and justly” is a “precept that’s not unique to America” and “should apply everywhere.”
Does the president truly mean what he said? Or was he just pandering to dreamy millennials and the Hollywood glitterati, who are too uninformed or in the tank to mark the chasm between his righteous finger-wagging at Putin and his kowtowing to Islamic leaders? The answers depend on whether he finally condemns sharia’s oppressive and often brutal strictures against homosexuality, which are zealously enforced in most Muslim countries.
Russia is Christian and Capitalist, hence why Obama despises them. Since that nation has turned its back on Marxism, Obama has a vendetta against the Russian people. Meanwhile, he supports organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood that kills gays.
