    Another rich white straight dumbass who doesn’t know wtf he is talking about. Would love to see his skeletons come out of the closet though, I’m sure we would find all kinds of putrid info on him.

    Sounds like Bernie and the good ol’ boys have been sniffing the gas fumes, and brain rot has set in. Let ’em eat exxon!

    No loss for me but my Grandma who loves me best is a Formula 1 fan and would totally kick Ecclestone’s ass if she read this.

    And that 90% quote?
    Seriously dude. Hope you’re not using that same source for information on car design cause it’s totally full of shite.

    Support for LGBT equality worldwide is about 70%.

    They’re everywhere, they’re everywhere, I tell you. Homophobes are everywhere, a real world wide phenomenon. Which means stupidity and ignorance know no bounds among the world’s populace. Ecclestone and Putin can kiss each other’s ass all day long while inhaling Formula One’s putrid fumes. It can’t make them any more absurd than they are today.

    Don’t let the children know that gay people are tortured and killed for being gay. Please ensure that children never find out how much they hate us.

    “It may upset a few people…”

    The word missing in that sentence is “million,” as in, “It may upset a few million people.”

    This is par for the course for bernie. When asked about women in F1 he said they should all where white, like other kitchen appliances.

  8. Paul R says

    @Andrew: that response proves what a man’s man he is. Being gay, I thought that all kitchen appliances are the grey tone of stainless steel.

    Another reason to be happy F1 continually FAILS in America. IndyCar and NASCAR dominate our market, F1 is crap.

    In the US a law like that in Russia would be instantly struck down in Federal court, even in states where a majority of the population opposes it. The Bill of Rights is meant to protect people in the minority from the actions of the majority. The freedom of speech guaranteed in the Constitution protects the right of people to say things even if most people don’t agree with the ideas being expressed. I am surprised that Russia doesn’t have something similar guaranteed in their Constitution.

    Every time some yahoo says that the US should have laws like the gay propaganda law in Russia they should be asked “It is often said that people may not agree with what you are saying, but I would lay down their life to protect your right to say it. So you would agree with that sentiment except on the issue of gay rights?”

    Oh, he’s been an ass for years. Lots of coddling dictators in Asia and the Mid-East too, trying to get sponsorships for races there.

    He’s had a long standing reputation as a mega-d0uche. No surprise. He’s kind of the anti-Branson in a way. He’s the son of a fisherman, while Branson was the son of barrister and grandson of a privy councillor. Branson is of course pro-gay marriage. Gotta love the british class system.

  13. GregV says

    Of course, every time one of this guy’s wives attains a certain age, he divorces her for a new one a generation younger. (Last year he got his latest wife who’s 47 years younger than he is.) What a wonderful model of commitment to marriage vows these anti-gay types are to the kids.
