20140219-075759.jpg That is a picture of one small part of the people’s uprising against the Government of Putin-Puppet Yanukovic. He took power in a rigged election, imprisoned his predecessor, and started to run his country like his KGB boss Vladimir told him to. Now the whole country is in a meltdown.

At least 25 are dead, hundreds imprisoned, and thousands injured in their fight against the nouveau Soviet state that Putin is helping to set up. The Ukrainian Olympic athletes are being muzzled to an extent, so as to keep the coverage of the games all light and fluffy, but they are sending out tweets of support and consolation to their countrymen back home.

Remember, folks, while we are looking at Sochi, Putin and his pals are murdering their subjects over in Kiev. Enjoy the skiing and skating, but we can multitask: let us also stand with the brave citizens of the Ukraine as they fight for their freedom. Freedom that they already fought for, and thought they had won.

Stand with them, because the same could happen to us someday.

A lot of Americans agree with Ol’ Pooty-Poot. You might think we are oh-so-enlightened, but don’t kid yourselves: all too many of us still hates them some LGBT folks. Haters in and out of government.

For example, here is an evangelical “Christian” pastor who will soon be tried for crimes against humanity. Said crimes being helping to slaughter untold numbers of gay Ugandans. That, dear reader, is some serious hate.

It’s all over the country: Kenny Coochy in Virginia, unconstitutional arrests for being gay around the nation, to name but a very few.

Yes, Russia deserves the condemnation it is receiving for its outlandish anti-gay pogrom. Open all the cans of whoop-ass you can find upon them. But perhaps you should also save a can or two for the many homophobic idiots here at home, too.
