News Report from Jamaica Reveals Homophobic Mob

Two weeks ago I posted about an ugly situation in Jamaica where three gay men had been cornered in a St. Andrew pharmacy by an angry homophobic mob. When the men were led to the safety of patrol cars by police, they were stoned.

Here's a fuzzy news report which reveals the extent of the sick frenzy surrounding the incident.

KbmI pulled the video from a hateful Jamaican blog which advocated, among other things, that homosexuals should die. The blog, Killbattyman.blogspot.com had been tagged with a warning page and was apparently pulled offline by Google, which owns the Blogger hosting service, this morning. I was able to grab the address for this video before it went dark. The illustration here was the lovely logo of the site.

Before it was pulled, Google had placed an interstitial page in front of the site which read: "Some readers of this blog have contacted Google because they believe this blog's content is hateful. In general, Google does not review nor do we endorse the content of this or any blog."

UK news outlet Pink News brought the site to the attention of the British Association of Chief Police Officers who immediately condemned the site, saying "ACPO condemn this completely. This is not the sort of thing we want anyone reading on the internet."

The site called for the death of high-profile gay men including designers Dolce & Gabbana and Outrage! UK activist Peter Tatchell. It also mocked the recent stoning of three Jamaican gay men by a homophobic mob outside a pharmacy in St. Andrew, as seen in the video above and in my recent post.

  1. Robert and World of Twist, its amazing how an homophobic moron seems to be enthralled with a gay site.Closeted, definitely. If curious, tough, and whats the fixation with “Enjoy a good Jamaica Dick”. One wonders if it’s out of personal experience.Or are you just afraid that we “homos” are really more of a man than you will ever be, and blinded by the hate of your religion.

  4. I have to agree with the thoughts of this thread; that other than blue water and white sand, this region of the world leaves little to be desired (well... other than Ricky Martin, perhaps). I like the Bahamas, but Key West offers as much enjoyment in an openly gay-welcoming environment.

  5. I don`t agree with homosexuality but it`s good that the police has respected their job regardless. Now these problems with attacks in Jamacia are getting a lot of publicity, thanks to things like the Internet and the journalist that was attacked a few years back.

  6. We could boycott rum. Something that ALL of us can do when we are out being social. Something they export. For those of you taking a puff of two, you can also boycott smoking pot from Jamaica.

  8. Great point of view about this situation. More and more blogs complain about the Google obstacles. Maybe because of the new rules.

  9. Carribean culture has the Victorian influence of the British Commonwealth to thank for its retention of violent hatred towards gays and lesbians.
