Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is at it again.

Mugabe who has in the past has barbarically threatened behead gays and lesbians is keeping his hate speech alive and mentally un-well this time by referring to gays and lesbians as “inhuman.”

According to the Washington Blade:

“The West says we must accept there is change in the world, that gays have human rights,” he said during an event at a hotel in Harare, the country’s capital, that commemorated International Women’s Day as the Herald, a Zimbabwean newspaper, reported. “Gays have no human rights. They have human rights – human rights for doing an inhuman thing.”

While the Unuted States does have some “sanctions” in place against Zimbawe  it continues to be a leading provider of humanitarian assistance to the people of Zimbabwe. The United States provided over $300 million in 2009 and over $200 million in 2010 for humanitarian, food, health, and democracy and governance assistance to Zimbabwe.  In 2011, the United States continued to provide this level of assistance while also raising its commitment to fight HIV and AIDS in Zimbabwe by $10 million to a total of $57.5 million.
