In the latest string of attacks against Russia LGBT’s by anti-gay fascists in that country whose hate hate has been fueled even further by Vladimir Putin’s anti-gay laws, a young Russian man in the city of Novosibirsk was beaten and then raped with a bottle at gunpoint “so that he repents for his sins “
Radio Free Europe reports:
“The series of short clips, making the rounds on the mobile phone application WhatsApp show the victim, who seems to be an ethnic Uzbek, being bullied into confessing that he is gay.
He is asked to identify himself and is stripped of his clothes, which are later burned. He is then handcuffed, beaten, insulted, and threatened with a gun. Ultimately, he is forced to sodomize himself by sitting on a bottle, which is then pushed with a bat.
The Uzbek-speaking source, speaking from Russia, confirms that the victim was targeted because he is gay.
“We made him sit on a bottle so that he repents for his sins and comes to reason,” he told RFE/RL’s Uzbek Service. “We did this to protect the dignity of Uzbeks. We live and work here, we are in contact with people of different nationalities. There will be no respect for us otherwise.”
Police in Novosibirsk say they are not aware of the case.
These savages are no longer isolated groups of vigilantes. Putin’s anti-gay laws have helped hate permeate the whole culture and the violence against out LGBT brothers and sisters is escalating, and in some cases even encouraged. But STILL American companies, athletes and will sponsor and attend the Sochi Olympics and not make a stand against this brutal treatment of lesbians and gays in that country and the United Nations sits silent.
Horrible. Simply horrible.
