Russia's treatment of gays comparable to Nazi Germany?

By Baltimore Sun (MD)

In a broad-ranging interview on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on Tuesday night, President Barack Obama addressed Russia's recently passed anti-gay laws by saying he has "no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them."

The comments come about six months before the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia -- a global event that has increased the amount of international attention being paid to Russia's new laws, one of which makes it illegal to spread "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations."

Foreigners and Russians alike can be arrested under the law, and some see it as having led to a spike in attacks on gay and lesbian Russians in recent weeks.

The issue has split the gay rights movement over whether to boycott the games.

On Tuesday night, Leno broached the topic by saying the laws had "shocked" him, comparing Russia's arrests of gay people to Nazi Germany's treatment of Jews and gays.

"It starts with that," Leno said. "You round up people who you don't like. Why is not more of the world outraged?"

Obama met the question head on:

"I've been very clear that when it comes to universal rights, when it comes to people's basic freedoms, that whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country, and I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them," Obama said.

Obama also said that "what's happening in Russia is not unique," bringing up his recent travels in Africa, where he said some countries that are doing good work for their citizens have also "persecuted gays and lesbians."

The president said it "makes for some uncomfortable press conferences," but that he feels it is important to speak out about.

"One of the things that I think is very important for me to speak out on is making sure that people are treated fairly and justly, because that's what we stand for and I believe that that's a precept that's not unique to America. That's something that should apply everywhere."

Leno then asked Obama whether he thinks Russia's laws will affect the Olympics.

Obama responded by saying he thinks Russia and President Vladimir Putin understand most countries participating in the Olympics won't tolerate discrimination against gays and lesbians.

"They're athletes. They're there to compete, and if Russia wants to uphold the Olympic spirit, then every judgment should be made on the track or in the swimming pool or on the balance beam, and people's sexual orientation shouldn't have anything to do with it."

OK, so Obama may have been confusing the Winter Olympics for the Summer Olympics -- but you get the drift.

    Obama met the question head on:

    “I’ve been very clear that when it comes to universal rights, when it comes to people’s basic freedoms, that whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country,

    That’s quaint because the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Article 16 states. (No mention of Sexual Orientation):

    (1) Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.
    (2) Marriage shall be entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses.
    (3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.

    …and to found a family… So the Universal Right is to found a family….
    Dictionary.com defines a family: a basic social unit consisting of parents and their children, considered as a group, whether dwelling together or not: the traditional family.

    So the Universal Right is for adult age Marriage between Men and Women to propagate families as espoused since the beginning of time as in the Bible.

    More Devil talk and it seems everyone coming in contact with Lowbama becomes tainted. It’s going to get harder and harder to stand your ground with God against Satan’s dominions especially those in the Government and those in the Entertainment (Propaganda dept) Industry.

      Of course all this gay and lesbian love Obama is now showing is in direct contrast to what he said during the 2008 campaign when he was all in favor of don’t ask, don’t tell and the marriage protection act. He’ll go any direction that he thinks the most voters are going. NO character at all. Just an empty suit and head.

      He is just trying to show how much he “hates” Russia after he revealed his true intent in the off mike promise to Putin that he would be of more help to them as soon as he was elected to a second term.

      How long are we going to put up with this creep? He’s testing the wimpy Republicans in the Legislature and they’re failing. Looks like they won’t impeach him to force us into a bloody civil war. Then they’ll all stand inside their government fortresses and laugh as they count their money and watch the streets run red with blood.
      What happened to our nation of laws? Impeach this horrible example of human excrement NOW!

      Ironic then that he gives money to moslem countries, allows more moslem immigration, and even sends in our men and women to defend the worst of the worst (the Muslim Brotherhood, al qaeda, etc) that follow the koran. The koran is the most intolerant book not only concerning gays but also any non-moslem. And as for islam, it uses a word that means ‘slave’ when describing a black person – even if that black person is a moslem.

      First the Nazis USED the gays to get into power, then they disposed of the gays after they proved to be inconvenient.

      Glenn Beck predicts that Obama wants to provoke a major war with Russia in order to cover up the failures of his policies.

      Hussein would be just stupid enough to try something like that.

      Of course, “Bathhouse Barry” Obama instinctively hates Putin because of the highly sensible Russian law against spreading pervert-recruitment propaganda.

      It doesn’t bother him a bit when Muslim governments pass far more stringent laws against outward expression of homosexuality, simply because Muslim trumps sodomite in the proggy pecking order. Muslim sodomites are ubiquitous, but they operate on the down low, much as Barry has always done.

    Well I suggest that Obama and the other fairies keep their butts out of Russia. Kudos to the Russians for standing up to this nonsense. Most of the world could care less what any two consenting adults do to each other. However we’re sick and tired of being told we’re to like it and embrace it. We’re not the ones with the loose screws and it’s pretty obvious that society itself isn’t crazy about these weirdo’s. Back into the closet or cave – whichever suits you and leave the rest of society alone. It’s got enough issues without dealing with this nonsense.

      Human rights are not nonsense. People being beaten in the streets, bullied, robbed, blacklisted, fired, or arrested like they are doing to gays in Russia is not nonsense.

      Having human rights that are protected by law is one of the things that makes America great, and shows how little policies have evolved in Russia from the olden days.

      God given rights, as mentioned in the Declaration of Independence, did not include rights to perversion, but to morality and a Moral God. ie: (to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them). Laws of Nature’s God and of Nature do not include perversion. (Go forth and Multiply being the key word).

      See my comments above.

      You, and Obama, are completely wrong about how homosexuals are treated in Russia.

      What bothers you is that Russians are not being forced to pretend that they approve of sodomy under pain of social and legal punishment, as Americans are here.

      Russia doesn’t arrest people for being gay – or even for practicing sodomy in private. They don’t even have restrictions against gays in the military. What Russian law forbids is parading perversion in public and attempting to convince young people that it’s the thing to do.

    What marriage rights, what “equal rights” do SADs (sexually aberrant deviants) have in Muslim countries? The president of Iran said on numerous occasions: “We do not have homosexuals in Iran!” Of course, they don’t.

    Obama is exporting his perversions to other countries through foreign aid and similar programs, trying have African countries accept these aberrant lifestyles as normal.

    Now he will try with Russia and may use their new law to boycott their Olympics (whether he actually admits this or not).

      Actually Russia is not a particularly Christian nation according to a survey Religion in Russia is diverse, with a 1997 law naming Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism as important in Russian history. Orthodox Christianity (Russian: Православие Pravoslavije) is Russia’s traditional and largest religion, deemed a part of Russia’s “historical heritage” in a law passed in 1997.[3] Russian Orthodoxy is the dominant religion in Russia. About 95% of the registered Orthodox parishes belong to the Russian Orthodox Church while there are a number of smaller Orthodox Churches.[4] However, the vast majority of Orthodox believers do not attend church on a regular basis.[5]
      In August 2012 the first-ever sociological survey and mapping of religious adherents in Russia based on self-identification was published, with data on 79 out of 83 of the federal subjects of Russia.[1][6][7] Out of a population of 142,800,000 the survey found that 58,800,000 or 41% are Russian Orthodox, 9,400,000 or 6.5% are Muslims (including Sunni Islam, Shia Islam, and a majority of unaffiliated Muslims), 5,900,000 or 4.1% are unaffiliated Christians, 2,100,000 or 1.5% adhere to other Orthodox Churches (including Ukrainian, Georgian, Armenian and other churches), 1,700,000 or 1.2% are Pagans (including Rodnovery, Etseg Din, Caucasian Neopaganism and Uralic Neopaganism) or Tengrists (Turco-Mongol shamanic religions and new religions), 700,000 or 0.5% are Buddhists (mostly Vajrayana), 400,000 or 0.2% are Orthodox Old Believers, 300,000 or 0.2% are Protestants, 140,000 are adherents of Eastern religions including Hindus and Krishnaites, 140,000 are Catholics, 140,000 are Jews.[1][2] The Bahá’í Faith in Russia (Вера Бахаи), according to Association of Religion Data Archives was estimated at about 18,990 in 2005.[8] The remaining population is made up of 36,000,000 or 25% “spiritual but not religious” people, 18,600,000 or 13% atheist and non-religious people and 7,900,000 people or 5.5% of the total population who have deemed themselves “undecided”.[1][2]Religion in Russia is diverse, with a 1997 law naming Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism as important in Russian history.

    In spite of what you have been brainwashed to believe, homosexuals lead a deviant lifestyle. It is not the norm, it is the exception, and some religions simply do not accept it.
    The contradiction here is that Obama is a devout Muslim but supports homosexuals, but purely for political purposes. He is again pandering to his liberal constituency, to keep them squarely in his pocket.
    But there may be another explanation. We already know he is a *******, raised without a father figure in his life; so perhaps he is gay? Do we have not only the first black president, but the first gay president as well? It would explain his support for gays, in spite of his Muslim heritage.

    This is not the first time I have sent you this same message; you people are deliberately being part of the problem:
    People like you play into the hands of the liberals by using their politically correct euphemisms.
    In this instance, the use of the euphemism “gay” helps to spread their unacceptable terminology by glossing over what it really is; (homosexuality) making the term “gay” acceptable in the thinking of the uneducated masses.
    ALWAYS use the correct terminology: pervert, homosexual, deviant, queer, or sodomite. CEASE using their perverted terminology, “gay;” you only promote the spread of their agenda.

    Russia’s treatment of gays comparable to Nazi Germany?

    No, and hell no, in that order.

    The Nazis were pro-gay and some of Hitler’s top officers were openly gay.

    The Brown Shirts were made up of gays as well as other factions; and General Ernst Rohm, the head of the Brown Shirts, was openly gay. He was murdered by Hitler in 1934 on the Night of the Long Knives.

      Sorry once the Brown Shirt leaders were killed. Gays did not have a particularly pleasant time http://www.chgs.umn.edu/educational/homosexuals.html
      The Nazi purge of homosexuals from their own ranks was only the beginning. On June 23, 1935, the first anniversary of the Roehm killings, the Nazis began a legal campaign against homosexuals by adding to paragraph 175 another law, 175a, which created ten new criminal offenses including kisses between men, embraces, even homosexual fantasies. The Gestapo and the SS, under the notoriously antihomosexual leadership of Heinrich Himmler, became involved in a steppedup campaign to work gays to death in the camps. Himmler is quoted as follows: “Just as we today have gone back to the ancient Germanic view of the question of marriage mixing different races, so too in our judgment of homosexuality a symptom of degeneracy that could destroy our race we must return to the guiding Nordic principle: extermination.” Reich Legal Director, Hans Frank, commented on the new penal code: “Particular attention should be addressed to homosexuality, which is clearly expressive of a disposition opposed to the normal national community … Homosexual behavior, in particular, merits no mercy.”

    Well, I guess when in Russia, a person should obey Russian Law.

    When in America…. well… our politicians can’t seem to find any law that applies to them personally, or any illegal aliens for that matter.

    I would suggest, that if you are ‘gay’ and want to attned the games in Russia, you need to find that closet while you’re there.

      As I said, there is no effort being made to bust anybody for sodomy – as long as sexual activity takes place in private. Homosexuals are not required to pretend to be straight, but they are forbidden to rub everyone else’s noses in their sexual proclivities.

    I thought all cultures were equal and we are to respect all cultures no matter what our sense of morality tells us? In that case we should respect Russian culture.

    The best is yet to come when the U.S.A. will, once again, boycott the Olympics. The difference this time is that, this time there won’t be that many disappointed athletes as there was last time.

      Not yet anyway! I couldn’t care less if one is gay, straight, transgender or what. Keep the overly affections for one another in “private”. I find all the public displays disgusting.

    Harold of Toledo, Ohio: Barack Obama has been stepping on his tongue forever due to his lack of sense and/or knowledge, and in many ways, has put our United States in harms way. Yet he’s still in office. WHY? He promotes homosexuality, which is one of the main causes of AIDS. AIDS is ranked 8th in a list of 10 of the most deadliest diseases of all times. Yet Barack Obama is still president. His lack of knowledge of this country and geographic locations doesn’t surprise me. As for the comment, Russia’s treatment of gays comparable to Nazi Germany?,”, I’d like to know who approves of AIDS, when it is such a deadly disease. Barack Obama’s approval of (or anyone else approving) AIDS is the first step toward the elimination of the human race.

    I listened to President Obama (recorded this morning), and didn’t hear enough outrage from him. Our grandparents fought Nazi Germany and stopped the Holocaust but it was 5 years into the US World War II, and by then 6 Million Jews were already dead, plus the German’s killed and tortured many Gays, as well as the Retarded, and a lot of Catholics. Russia today is like Germany in 1936 in that it’s before they plan to commit genocide of the Gays. And it’s coincidental that they, like the German’s, are hosting the Olympics.

    Russia is starting with the Gays, but its just another cycle of Human Rights violations in OUR time in history that should be stopped before it gets any worse. The Olympic Committee, not Obama, should stand firm that it will not tolerate any gay-bashing during the Olympics for either Spectators or Competitors before any American Gay Athletes or Gay fans get hurt, which is looking more and more certain.

      You must remember that BHO is just a community organizer. He has no real world experience, he’s never held a real job, or earned a private sector paycheck. He’s always been on the government dole, and even his education was funded by the government, though we cannot be sure of this as the record are supressed by the uber-liberal universities he attended.
      He is of average intelligence at best, but he can really read a teleprompter and make the liberal BS sound wonderful.
      Its time we realize that he is arm puppet of George Soros, who owns him. Soros is the evil, demented puppet master, who hates America and the Constitution, and has funded relentless attacks on its citizens. BHO is his willing accomplice.

    “Russia’s treatment of gays comparable to Nazi Germany?”

    There is an article from http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/fischer/080515 titled “The truth about homosexuality and the Nazi Party”, that says many of the NAZIs in the hierarchy of Hitler’s administration were homosexuals.

    It is amazing how quickly accepting an individual’s right to be gay or lesbian has moved to allowing every type of deviate sexual behavior and then on to allowing it to be preached as an alternate lifestyle to the nation’s youth.

    As proven 50 years ago in research on primate social behavior, isolated chimps have no interest in any aspect of normal sexual behavior or group and family life. There is no magic gay gene, it is learned behavior and the collapse of our society’s social structure can be blamed for such nonesense as Obama’s GLBT Month and all it implies. Lust is a normal human desire and when society, including churches, say deviate behavior is ok, youth will find the easiest way, and as every boy scout can tell you, it isn’t the 35 year old scout master, it is the 15 year old scout preying on the 12 year old. The 35 year old has to offer money or security.

    Somehow I am sure he doesn’t see the slaughter of innocent babies through the horror of abortion (our own holocaust) in anyway similar to the treatment of the old, disabled, and/or Jewish people under the Nazi regime.

    Time to take the plank out of our own eye before we try to take the speck out of our neighbors’.

    We’ve got to stop telling other countries what to do. Muslims cannot tolerate gays and treat women like pet dogs. Yet Obama buddies up to The Muslim Brotherhood as he did by giving them money and arms before Morsi was taken out.

    We need to take care of our country’s business, and stop giving taxpayer money to our enemies. We need to get out of those multiple wars and start focusing on jobs and our economy. Our country’s morality is going downhill with all of the anti-Christian activity by Obama, ACLU, Freedom From Religion, liberal judges and liberal media…they all have played a part in removing God from everything they can.
