'Russia Today': America's View of Anti-Gay Laws is 'Warped' — VIDEO


RT (formerly Russia Today), the partially state-funded network founded with the intention of improving Russia's image abroad, takes a look at American anger at Russia's ban on "gay propaganda" and tries to make the argument that the silly "warped" Americans don't know what they're talking about and the law is simply in place to protect children from the evils of homosexuality.

  1. Tell that to the gay people that are tortured you stupid propaganda witch. AND most Americans feel that the USSR should have been bombed while we had the chance.

  2. So, I guess we all know where the old Pravda staff went after the fall of the Communists.

  8. That British quisling makes me want to vomit.

  9. So, since the gays in that part of the world apparently 'enjoy' their life of suppression, and 'carry on as normal' (for them), we 'Westerners' ought to just be happy for them and accept what's being done to them?

  10. Nazi whore.

  11. You have laws that criminalize people's existence, and this horrible person passing herself off as a reporter has the nerve to argue that it's all OK because:

    A. We don't enforce it as much as we could
    B. The majority of people support it

    These folks are monsters.

  12. Vile apologist for an inexcusable criminal government. I hope the Olympics are huge failure and embarassment for the Russians. They deserve it.

  13. I suppose all the video proof we've gotten of violence against the Russian LGBT community is "warped" also. Seriously?

  14. This makes be sad and angry. If I was was on the fence about boycotting Russia before then I am most certainly committed now.

  15. If RT ever had any credibility, it's now completely gone. That piece was propaganda of the first order. If there's any justice in the world, Tokyo Rose there will never hold another job in the world of legitimate journalism.

  16. Where did they find that British queen! What a dipshit. Texas = Russia seriously. What would happen to a Russian Wendy Davis in the Duma. Queen needs to get out of the bars, bee is in her bonnet and there is not much under that bonnet apparently. Soviet TV speaks.

  17. LIARS! If a majority of Russians do believe that homosexuality is a danger to children, they've clearly been drinking too much. Of course getting falling-down drunk in front of your family and children is an old Russian tradition - no law against that!

  18. Also, are Russian children allowed to listen to Tchaikovsky?

  19. It is time, PAST time, for EVERY American artist from singers to actors to painters to DJs so STOP playing in and taking money from a country that vilifies and terrorizes it's LGBT citizens. Next, I think we need to get Gaga and Madonna and Liza and Cher and Bette and EVERY top DJ to have a massive three day music festival in Croatia or Macedonia or one of the former Soviet countries that is struggling to make human rights advancements for their citizens to raise money to fight these criminals and relocate those Russians that want to leave.

  20. @CPT_Doom: There was a joke going around the former Soviet Union (when the government wasn't listening): "There's no news in The Truth and no truth in The News." It turns out that "pravda" means "truth" and "isvestia" means "news", and both of those were the names of official newspapers, "Pravda" for the Communist Party and "Isvestia" for the government-sponsored newspaper.

    Guess it is time to recycle those old Russian jokes!

  21. America's view isn't warped. I live in Canada and Ireland and my view is the same as theirs.

    Posted by: Jeff | Aug 5, 2013 8:41:09 PM

  22. Yes it's the same warped vision that made us anti-Nazi.

  23. sorry just more of the same old russian propaganda . like stalin wasn't really such a bad gut, probably won't be when compared to putin. putin has just managed right under russian noses managed to kill their freedoms and bring back the dictatorship they fought so hard to keep rid of

  24. Gays are the "canary in the coal mine". Mark my words: this wave of oppression will not stop with the gays. Any ethnic or religious group could be next. The Nazi's started with Jews, but pretty soon anyone who was not "pure Aryan" was liable to be tossed into Hitler's ovens.

    What is happening really isn't about the gays; they are just a convenient fall guy. This is all designed to divert attention from the declining personality xult of Vladimir Putin and the fact he and his buddies are raping the Russian people and their economy for personal gain. Vladimir, explain to me again how an "elected leader" becomes a multi-billionaire? The entire Russian leadership is a farce, nothing but a corrupt kleptocracy dividing up the spoils of a nation.

    The only difference between Putin and Hitler is Putin, with his nuclear arsennel, has the power to destroy the world.

  25. If only RT had been on-scene with cameras rolling to tell the three recently arrested Dutch tourists that the law is only a myth. . .
