Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe Attacks Gays, Tells UK PM David Cameron 'To Hell With You': VIDEO

Mugabe

Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe attacked British Prime Minister David Cameron at a celebration for his 88th birthday over Cameron's recent threat linking aid to African nations lagging in human rights, particularly for LGBT people, AFP reports:

Cameron"Nature is nature. It has created male and female," Mugabe told thousands of supporters at his 88th birthday celebration at a stadium in the eastern border town of Mutare.

"You David Cameron, are you suggesting that you don't know that or is it some kind of insanity or part of the culture of Europeans.

"In their newspapers, that's one of my sins. That I called (gays) worse than pigs and dogs because pigs know there are males and females. It's even in the Bible that you create through the system of marrying.

"That's how we were born, so we reject that outright and say to hell with you. I won't even call him a dog because my own dog will complain and say, but what have I done."

Mugabe added: "We won't accept [gay rights in our charter]. There are other countries who have accepted that and put it in their constitutions. Please, young men and women, you don't have the freedom for men to marry men and women to marry women. You have the freedom for men to marry women. That's God's freedom. That's what created you and me."

ZhanjeIn news that may be related, the Zimbabwe contestant for Mr. Gay World has dropped out:

Taurai Zhanje, who last week was verbally attacked by many from his local community, pulled out of the contest citing personal reasons. His decision comes after it was revealed that in December last year the first-ever Mr. Gay Namibia, one Hamutenya, was assaulted by men who demanded his winnings soon after he was crowned. Zhanje would not elaborate what he meant by ‘personal reasons.’ The competition says it aims “to advance national and international gay rights through education and public performance”. Zhanje’s intentions had been celebrated by many organisations in the gay community.

  1. It isn't worth reporting on this man, but I'm sure that it will bring out a ton of racist comments.

  2. Let's repoeat it again so those outside the gay community hear it clearly: stop all funding - that's right - ALL FUNDING to any country discriminating against gay people. Plain and simple. They can wither on the vine.

  3. It was worth reporting, but there is no need for racist comments. There is, however, valid discussion from a political viewpoint, such as: "Robert old boy, it's our money and we shall distribute it to whom we wish based on things such as commitment to human rights. If you don't like it you can bloody-well bugger off." Or something like that. Sorry, just finished a Downton Abbey Season 2 marathon.

  4. Cutting off all funding hurts the people, not the leader. He has millions and is about to die. There is no easy answer.

  5. When will this old f**ker just die? Jesus he's such a waste of space. Worst thing ever to happen to Zimbabwe. Yes, even worse than the former Rhodesia.

  6. You don't need a brick to fall on your head to wake you up to the fact that the African continent is the unfriendliest place for those who believe in freedom and liberty.The African mind, with a few exceptions, is shackled by the dogmas and customs of long ago.It seems like Islam, conservative catholicism and tribal beliefs are preventing them from joining the modern world.

  7. Cut off all funding to this failed state and reroute it to New Orleans and Detroit.

  8. @Jack

    China, North Korea...how about Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia...

    Can we also talk about and boycott rich nations, too?

    Or better yet, first, can we secure GLBT rights in the US? Can we have a culture of harmony, compassion, and authentic love here at home before we point out the haters in other countries?

    We are a cruel country where being poor is a crime, where being different means you're weak, where you have to accept a label in order to participate in the process. I say fix ourselves first.

  9. IF Barack Hussein Obama HAD President Robert Mugabe's EIGHTY-EIGHT YEAR-OLD "NUTS," HE WOULD HAVE FULL SUPPORT FROM THE DEMOCRATIC-NEGRO COMMUNITY AND PROBABLY WIN IN A LANDSLIDE. THE BIRACIAL PRESIDENT NEEDS TO SIT AT President Mugabe's FEET AND LEARN THE WAYS OF "REAL-" AFRICAN MALES. PEOPLE IN KENYA SHOULD BE LAUGHING.
