Zimbabwe President Mugabe Condemns 'Gay Filth' of Europe

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe attacked Western countries that have imposed an asset freeze and travel ban on him by suggesting he doesn't care and condemning their acceptance of homosexuality.

Mugabe Said Mugabe:

"We don't worry ourselves about the goings-on in Europe. About the unnatural things happening there, where they turn man-to-man and woman-to-woman. We say, well, it's their country. If they want to call their country British Gaydom, it's up to them. That's not our culture. We condemn that filth. We get alarmed when these countries have the audacity to schedule us as an item to discuss in their parliament."

LAst July, Mugabe vowed to not include rights for gays in a new draft of the country's constitution. He also took the time to once again compare gays to pigs and dogs.

  1. Are we sure this statement is from Mugabe? It sounds exactly like something Michele Bachmann or Mike Huckabee would say.

  2. Translation " Well, fine...I don't want to come to your country or have any of your goods and services anyway. You have gay people and are all a bunch of poopy-faces."

  3. Girl, you better recognize! If countries give an evil dictator aid, they are going to have to discuss that country, it's policies, it's values, it's "leadership," and a host of other things. But let's let him go on and continue with his trillion dollar bills and blood-filled elections. Should those leaders he condemns just write "cash" on the check while he continue to starve his people and feed them lies? Evil is often not a subtle thing.

  4. oh but the truly great sins of the white man are wonderful in Zimbabwe

    government crack down on unions, cutting workers salaries for bigger corporate profits, etc

    This fool probably in reality doesn't give 2 cents about gay people. Just a convenient scapegoat to cover over the crimes and corruption of his government and to demagogue the population

    don't look at those people trying to form unions and agree with them that corporations are causing problems in Zimbabwe...........its those euro inspired evil gayssssssssssssssssssssss

  5. It would probably about one tenth the effort put into getting rid of Gadafi in order to rid Africa and the world of this senile old despot. BUT, I guess it aint worth anybody's time.

    ...actually, probably less than one tenth. A few grenades and bye bye Bobby.

  8. Its amazing how the American Taliban has poisoned the mind of this savage with their religious vitriol. He was probably living happily in his hut before the missionary whack jobs poisoned his mind.

    The kingdom of zimbabwe was a prosperous kingdom at one time dominating the ivory and gold trade in the area and building stone fortresses with the ruins of impressive dry stone fortresses still around today (dry stone = no mortar which requires greater intellectual investment in design)

  14. "savage" "happily in his hut"

    Oh, Tigger, Andy doesn't like visitors exchanging slurs and racial insults on his blog. Why are you pushing it? ...using insulting imagery that goes back long before homophobia in Africa was ever thought of.

    Don't take me there, Tigger. I'd have to find some way to respond to you without using profanity and I'm too old & weary to put in the effort.

    And you aint foolin' anybody with that posting dirty, stin....see what I mean? Nevermind.

    Posted by: Derrick from Philly | Apr 14, 2011 11:31:56 AM


    even more pics and remember this was all done without mortar between the stones. Mortaring stones together to build a structure is much easier and takes less thinking to design than dry stone masonry

  16. It's true -- it would be better to concentrate on the horrors of colonialism and its aftermath (the real reason Zimbabwe is in this state today) than the insignificant fact that there are gay people, well, everywhere.

  17. Zimbabwe used to be of the most prosperous countries in Africa. It was called the "breadbasket of Africa" because farming was so successful there.

  18. post post script :-P

    “Zimbabwe” is variously translated from the Shona language to mean “sacred house,” “venerated houses,” “houses of stone,” “ritual seat of the king,” “court,” or “home or grave of the chief.”

    "Houses of stone"

    :-) tigger troll can you learn from and appreciate facts?

  19. That "culture" he is so proud of has resulted in a region that is in a class of its own in terms of its backwardsness and dependence vis-a-vis not only the West, but the rest of the world.

    Sub-Saharan Africa is the sick man of the world, entirely dependent on the charity of other regions and countries just to feed and clothe itself at the most minimal levels.

    Take aid programs out of the continent and it would collapse completely in an Apocalypes of starvation, disease, and violence......

    Maybe the aid should be removed if the homphobic intansigence of its inhabitants continues.....

  20. rick and how did it get that way?

    how did a once prosperous kingdom become what it is today? centuries of colonialism and western exploitation/dominance

    A once prosperous kingdom that had trade routes that stretched all the way to arabia and into china as evidenced by coins and pottery shards found at Great Zimbabwe

  21. Rhodesia, even as a colony, was a successful agrarian economy. Mugabe changed that. He is bleeding the country dry of every cent he can steal and his people are starving. Some leader.

    MSTROZFCKSLV - Don't blame it all on colonialism. Mugabe is a pig who destroyed Zimbabwe and ran the economy into the ground.

    Posted by: Jonathan | Apr 14, 2011 12:37:20 PM

  22. Zimbabwe (or rather Rhodesia) did very well as a British colony. Sure, most of the wealth was owned by white people, but the entire country was relatively well off too.
    It was after they fought for their independence that everything began to decline. Even then it wasn't so bad until Mugabe and his cronies forcefully seized the remaining white farms.

    Sorry, but as bad as the Colonial era was for many countries there, it's not like they learned anything from it. Wherever you look it's poverty, misery and limitless corruption. They've had 30-40 years to turn their countries around. That's more than enough time. Especially considering how resource-rich some of them are.

  23. @MSTROZFCKSLV I am sorry, but that old "colonialism destroyed a once-vibrant and affluent Africa" idea is now bankrupt. Africa was in the Stone Age, technologically and otherwise, when Europeans had contributed nothing to the advance of humanity in its entire existence, unlike Europe, Asia, and the Arab world.

    Not a single advance of our species has come from the contributions made by Sub-Saharan Africa. Not one.

    India was once a colony, too, by the way, the "jewel in the crown" of the British Empire, but while India is in the process of becoming a major economic player on the world stage (as obviously is China, which was also basically reduced to a colony by the West), in sharp contrast to any country in Africa. So try as one might to continue to blame Africa's problems on colonialism, the rise of Asia (and countries like Brazil) proves the lie.

    It is increasingly apparent that nobody is to blame for Africa's problems but Africans themselves.....

  24. "Sub-Saharan Africa is the sick man of the world, entirely dependent on the charity of other regions and countries just to feed and clothe itself at the most minimal levels."

    Rick, during this 150 anniversary of the start of the American Civil War many Americans have decided not only to do more research on the War but also do more research slavery and the slave trade. Last week I read some slave narratives and also read the synopsis of PBS' great special "Africans in America". So, when someone like you tells me about the "backwardness" of Africans and their descendents I'm ready for you.

    Slavery and colonialism laid the foundation for the mess Sub-Saharah Africa is in--and the corrupt, greedy post-colonial black bastards like Mugambe put even more misery on their own people.

    Every person of African descent must study slavery and colonialism; if not, they'll believe what White supremacists like you have to say about them. Their self esteem will be damaged severely. If they have knowledge of their African past and your European past there is no way they'll feel inferior...especially to someone like you.

    "Maybe the aid should be removed if the homphobic intansigence of its inhabitants continues....."

    What do you care? It will be African Gays who will suffer and they are what do you care?

  25. Dear Mr. Mugabe:

    If Europe is so bad, why do millions try to flee your country and continent each year to try to get to Europe? Why don't you focus on the fact that your economy is the most pathetic in the world? You are a delusional ape.

    Lover of British Gaydom
