Even madder than we imagined: Vlad the Putin and (Witch) Doctor Al-Haji Yahya Jammeh

RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin has claimed that the woes of his “friend”, Italy’s former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, are due to the fact that he is has been victimised for:

Irreconcilable heterosexuality … Berlusconi is being accused for his love affairs with women. Were he a homosexual then no one would lay a finger on him.

Putin’s defence of the womanising tax-fraudster came during a little rant he had earlier this year at something called the Valday International Discussion Club.  There he explained why he:

Deeply disliked societies that legalised same-sex marriage.

According to this report, Putin, who is moving ever closer to the Russian Orthodox Church, compared gay marriage with Satanism.

Putin has closed the distance that once existed between church and state in Russia. Here he is pictured with a ju-ju man wearing a rather fetching  jardinière

Putin has closed the distance that once existed between church and state in Russia. Here he is pictured up close with a ju-ju man wearing a rather fetching jardinière.

In March 2013 he personally initiated a ban on foreign same-sex couples adopting Russian orphaned children. In signing the ban into law in the summer of 2013, Putin said:

We note that many Euro-Atlantic countries have practically betrayed their roots, including the values of Christianity which were essential for the Western civilisation. Moral principles together with any traditional identity (national, cultural, confessional or even juridical) are being denied.

Putin went on to deny that Russia was penalising sexual minorities. There is only one law that:

Prohibits the propaganda of homosexuality to minors.

There is nothing to be worried about, he added, but then blamed homosexuals for worsening Russia’s demographic crisis, and warned that Europeans were dying out because of homosexuality and immigration.

Meanwhile, Gambia’s Muslim President, Doctor Al-Haji Yahya Jammeh who claims to have the knack of curing AIDS with herbs and bananas, last week used his address to the United Nations to attack lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people – claiming gender and sexual minorities are one of the three:

Biggest threats to human existence.

The imbecile compared homosexuality to the sins of greed and a lust for power, saying it is

More deadly than all natural disasters put together.

Speaking to world leaders at the UN on September 27, Jammeh said:

Those who promote homosexuality want to put an end to human existence. It is becoming an epidemic and we Muslims and Africans will fight to end this behavior. Homosexuality in all its forms and manifestations which, though very evil, anti-human as well as anti-Allah, is being promoted as a human right by some powers.

Jammeh’s comments drew worldwide criticism, with Andre Banks, executive director of international gay rights group All Out, calling him ‘paranoid and disturbing’.

In a statement, Bank said:

In his list of the world’s greatest threats, the President left one out – intolerance.

    Vladimir Putin is an absolute fucking psycho, seriously he’s like a real life James Bond villain or something.

    ‘Those who promote homosexuality want to put an end to human existence. ‘
    Sign of absolute total stupidity. Was this Ahole elected??
    Because it would then point to a large number of absolute totally stupid russians as well.
    You can’t invent stupid this bad it has to occur naturally.
    But this most likely goes way beyond stupid….

    Q1-Who is PROMOTING homosexuality??? Hell even Homosexuals don’t promote it any more then heteros promote their life style.

    Q2- 7BILLION people!!! We could use a little ending of humans!!

  3. Matt Westwood says:

    @L.Long: It’s not the “ending of humans” that’s the problem, it’s the ending of a particular *sort* of humans (i.e. the same colour, politics and religion as “us”) at the expense of *another* sort of human (who, of course, because they’re not the same colour, politics and religion as us are not *really human*).

    Heard that before anywhere? Like, sometime last century, like, somewhere in the middle of Europe, maybe?

  4. Barfly says:

    So Putin thinks that Berlusconi would not be persecuted if he was bed hopping with young men. This from a former KGB agent. 3Perhaps he as forgotten how much the catholics love homosexuals. Mind you that photo of him and the priest looks like the beginning of a long snog, and the jardinare he is wearing well I am sure I have seen one on flog it maybe that is were he got it. Just the usual anti clap trap but it come from a person with power and who will be listened to.

    His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr. Yahya Abdul-Azziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh Naasiru Deen: “If you don’t believe in God, you can never be grateful to humanity and you are even below a pig.”

    Neither this non-believer nor any pig have ordered the death of students, journalists, prisoners or migrants. His Excellency cannot honestly say the same. Tell me more, please, about your gratefulness to humanity.

  6. barriejohn says:

    Trevor Blake: I think that that convoluted statement really means that if you don’t believe in mythical sky dwellers then you have no one to whom to be grateful for your life and all the things that give you pleasure. The religious have an overwhelming need to be prostrating themselves in self-loathing before some supposedly superior being (hence, perhaps, all the hierarchies in religion), and then have to tie themselves in metaphorical knots trying to explain all the sickness, sorrow and suffering that their beneficent rulers continually send their way!

    The two clowns the above refers to are absolutely disgusting beyond belief. Ah! Belief is THE main source of the total bullshit. Belief in a non-existent sky fairy who never has existed and would not be worth any sort of “worship” if he/she/it did exist as a cursory scan of the holly buybull, old tasty mint, shows how vile and blood thirsty that piece of crap is. And these two clowns want me to believe in something like that? Bullshit on them and the sheep they rode in on.
    Yes, there are homosexuals who may be violent, just as there are violent people in ANY grouping of people. Big deal. I have never encountered any homosexual person in my entire 66 years on this planet who tried to “push” or “promote” homosexuality to/on me or anybody else. All they have ever asked of me is that I not persecute them and I respect them and maybe they respect me in turn. I never asked them if they did. I try to respect the beliefs of others, but when the type of clown as in the above article, well, they deserve NO respect as they show none. Respect, as I was taught, has to be earned. While I did grant Putin a small measure of respect for allowing Snowden sanctuary in Russia, this behavior of his has evaporated what little respect I had for him. As to the other clown above, no, he could not even begin to try and earn my respect as he is a close minded bigot who is beyond stupid. Unfortunately, he has some measure of power as he is a president. What a shame that such as these two have any real power over other human beings.
    I’ll stop now as if I continue, this will just degenerate into a cursing mess and we don’t need that here today.

    If Marx and Lenin could only see the above photo they would leap out of their graves and strangle Putin – and I for one would stand by and applaud. What an odious little fuck this RasPutin is! Here he is, virtually snogging a bearded, religious freak in public, while heaping all of Russia’s problems onto the backs of gay people. This has happened before in history – Hitler scape-goated the Jews – they and they alone, he screamed were the cause of Germany’s woes. Just wait, it won’t be long before Putin starts screaming ‘Wir mussen die Gays straffen!!’ But let what has happened in Russia be a warning to those countries of the world who think that their freedoms are secure – they are not. They will need defending. Freedom of speech – freedom of love – freedom from hate – freedom from religion – freedom to think freely – the freedom to fucking BREATHE and have an enlightened life! Shame on Putin! He’s a revolting, ugly-minded, Machiavellian toad!

    Indeed. And I think Mikhail Gorbachev would be right behind them.

    Is that religious person in the photo wearing a teapot warmer?

    No. He is just following the doctrine – If you wanna look a prat, wear a silly hat!

    What I don’t understand is why Brian Blessed needs to whisper to Putin – he’s normally a shouty bastard!

    Vladimir Putin: A Livid Prim Nut

    Apologies if this has been sent in before…

    Contrary to all sensible and rational thinking, it seems that Stephen ‘Birdshit’ Green admires Putin as some kind of hero. Why am I not surprised?
