    I think this goes to prove that repression of gays in Russia is not coming from President Putin but is a reflection of a populist neo-fascist and conservative resurgence all over Europe. Even liberal Norway made a sharp turn to the far right in their recent elections.

    Gays are being targeted by anti-Assad rebels in Syria and Lebanon thanks to the US, EU, Arab royalty, and Israel campaign against the government of Syira..

  2. I hope this is a wake up call to Polish leaders. As gay rights have progressed it seems the world is sliding back into a darker scarier time. Especially in Russia and eastern Europe. Germany would never tolerate this.

      History repeats itself. With economic austerity there is often a rise in national chauvinism and racism. There has been a lot of hostility toward immigration in all nations. A lot of the the stone throwing toward Russia is coming from nations who have their own glass house revanchist problems, and that includes Germany. Germany may have the appearance of not having a problem because they are in many respects an intolerant nation. They are more adept at heavy-handed censorship and coverup. Plus, they have not felt the same degree of economic austerity and mass unemployment as other European nations.
