Gambian President Threatens Gays: 'If We Catch You, You Will Regret Why You Are Born'

Gambian President Yahya Jammeh, who has a long history of anti-gay threats, has made a few more.

Said Jammeh this week: Jammeh

“Homosexuality is anti-humanity. I have never seen homosexual chicken, or turkey.. If you are convicted of homosexuality in this country, there will be no mercy for offenders. We will put you in the female wing of the prison,” Jammeh said.

“We want the population to grow. There will be children in this country. Homosexuality is anti-god, anti-human, and anti-civilization. Homosexuals are not welcome in the Gambia. If we catch you, you will regret why you are born. I have buffalos from South Africa and Brazil and they never date each other. We are ready to eat grass but we will not compromise on this. Allowing homosexuality means allowing satanic rights. We will not allow gays here.”

  1. Somehow I sincerely doubt this piece of excrement has even truly cared to find out the facts about homosexuality in nature.

  2. Great! I had the flight and the hotel booked and everything, for a fun summer in Gambia. Change of plans.

  3. I feel nothing but sorrow for every single GBLT person whose only crime was to be born into these societies. I wish there was some way to give them sanctuary but alas that would be a logistic / political mine field. I’m sure they have developed survival skills that would amaze us all.

  6. ALMOST without exception Africa from the shores of the Mediterranean to the Cape of Good Hope is an intellectual and economic wasteland. There are some few brave souls trying to change things but they have an almost impossible task.

  10. Depressing.

    As someone wrote above: What rotten luck to be born there. It could have been me or you instead.

    Is Gambia in the UN? Can the UN educate this guy?

  11. Dear Evolution: You let those cute wooly mammoths die out and left us with this? Really? I want to speak with your manager.

  12. Where are the drones when you really need them?

  13. We need to set up sanctuary and asylum programs. We have to rescue our brothers and sisters there. We have to make it possible for them to escape. How do we start? How can we help?

  14. If that is the president imagine what is left for the common folk. I haven’t read such primitive display of concatenated ignorance since the last time I took a XIX century book, and even that was more ideologically evolved.

    So guys, remember: spend your money on Uruguay and other Latin American countries, not only they are ahead of the U.S.A, your life, rights and even marriages will be respected. Feel a member of the human race, not someone who deserves to be annihilated.

  15. Your country is the dumpster and the sewage of civilization, because of corrupted, power-hungry, anti-democracy, greedy, son of bitches like you who disregard the needs of your own people for the sake of wealth and power.

  16. How does this translate to Main Street, USA? Do you want to find out?

  17. Nobody has to give him a visa to let him go on a shopping spree. Sounds like a plan - rumor has it that the reason that North Korean a$$hole Kim is making nuclear threats is the recent boycott on luxury goods. Kim needs his iTunes and Mercedes and he can't get those right now, and is throwing a fit.

  18. We should seriously give up on Africa.
    From Mali terrorists to Nigerian Islamics and Somalie pirates.....there should only be a policy of containing that fetid swamp as much as possible through surgical strikes when they become a the Mali branch of Al Queda in the Maghreb did.

  19. The average IQ in Gambia is so low that they cannot be executed in the state of Maryland because they are considered retarded.

  20. Giving up on Africa isn't an option at least unless/until we can find a way to help the LGBT men and women in countries like Gambia and Uganda (and Caribbean countries like Jamaica). They need our help and attention in the worst way as they are being targeted more than ever in a continent hate campaign.

    So so incredibly sad to read these comments from this awful man.

  23. American evangelicals have planted their flag in Africa to embolden morons like this guy.

  24. Perhaps his beanie is a bit too tight. It seems to be restricting the blood-flow to his brain. As a matter of fact, based upon his ignorant comments, this man has no brain at all. Boy, is he going to be sorry he was ever born come Judgement Day. So he thinks he can kill in the name of God? He is not worthy to lick the sole of a gay man's foot. Seriously, is there anything worthy in this nation? It sounds like a dump.

  25. Go eff yourself you hateful nutjob. Same tight beanies as RC cardinals, could there be a link there?
