  1. For crying out loud… did ANYONE believe or think different?

    Of course the anti-gay laws will be and are enforced during the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games! And of course the anti-gay laws are and will be enforced during the the Sochi 2014 Paralympics!

    It are “democratically” accepted laws by the Russian “democratically” elected parliament, and…… Russia is a sovereign state with its own national laws and legislation!
    And with the Putin thugs at the helm they do not care about what the rest of the world says, does or thinks! As neither the Americans do btw!

    We will see old and young people being killed, being taken away to prisons, being tortured, being trampled by thugs who are doing it all with the open and public approval of Putin, the Russian Parliament, the International Olympic Committee, the Administration of the USA, the European Commission, the European Parliament, the European National Governments, and all they will say…… “those gay people should not have used the sports event Olympic Games for their political goal! Suits them right to be tortured, to be trampled upon, to be imprisoned, to be thrown out of Russia in disgrace!”
    And everyone will go his or her way…….
    Forgetting that all the gay people in Russia meanwhile are killed, harassed, subdued by right-wing terrorists (so-called punks but in reality payed thugs by the Putin government), tortured day in day out, and that they, the gay people of Russia are loosing out………. while we in the west go on celebrating more and more freedom, more and more equality, and we in the west will be able to enjoy!

    Get real….. whomever thought that the anti-gay laws in Russia would not be enforced should have his or her head checked…. (the one in his or her ass I mean!)!

    BAN RUSSIA FROM THE OLYMPIC GAMES in SOCHI 2014!
