  1. The only thing that these raping Usbeks achieve is that they will be identified, exposed to the world as the rapists they are, being exposed to their own parents ad dishonorable creatures that deserve nothing less then the death penalty, and that they have disgraced their own people, the Usbeks!
    No Russian respects Usbeks, and by acting as if being a Russian makes the disrespect even greater, and more serious against all Usbeks in Russia!

    No one respects rapists, and those who perform so-called honor rapes are disrespected the most in and by every culture were people with common sense know that honor-rapes are practices from the middle ages and have no place in the 21st century!

    These guys will be punished, if not by the authorities then by the People, of Usbekistan (remember that these Usbeks in Russia have family in Usbekistan who will be held responsible for the actions of their family members in Russia!…..), and by the People of the World!

  2. I think it is totally hypocritical to cast aspersions by calling it “Vladimir Putin’s anti-gay laws.” Where is the outcry from Will Kohler about Indiana’s recently passed law that makes it a felony for a gay person to even apply for a marriage license? Where is Kohler’s call to boycott Indiana? This was apparently done by immigrant Uzbeks in Russia and not by Russians. I once knew a gay Uzbek immigrant in 2001 who I met at a protest I organized here in Fresno concerning a young American Indian transgendered youth who was murdered in Colorado. This Uzbek had fled his native land due to the anti-gay prejudice that was rife at that time. None of this new and it is wrong to lay the blame on the new Russian law passed by its legislature. Rather, the new law is reflective of the rise in national chauvinism which is reflexive of President Obama’s national chauvinistic and imperialistic threats toward Russia and its allies.
