Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe: ‘Gays Are ‘Inhuman’

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, who has in the past threatened to jail and behead gays, only this month learned that they exist in his own country. Now, in a talk in Zimbabwe's capital, he's keeping his hate speech alive by referring to gays and lesbians as "inhuman."

According to the Washington Blade:

“The West says we must accept there is change in the world, that gays have human rights,” he said during an event at a hotel in Harare, the country’s capital, that commemorated International Women’s Day as the Herald, a Zimbabwean newspaper, reported. “Gays have no human rights. They have human rights – human rights for doing an inhuman thing.”

Jeffrey Smith of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights responded to the Blade:

“These comments are consistent with Mugabe’s past statements, describing gays as worse than ‘pigs and dogs.’ For Mugabe to declare gays and lesbians as somehow inhuman, on a day meant to celebrate equality, is horribly ironic and reprehensible.”

In other Mugabe news, the leader says he will boycott next week's European Union-Africa summit in Brussels after his wife was denied a visa to attend the event.

    This monster must be destroyed. Enough talk. These people are not leaders, they are non-human, sociopathic, escapees from Hell, who must be sent back forcibly. The ones that can affect large numbers of people are the worst and ones who must be eliminated first.

    Love those yellow spectacles……….another twisted toad with much too keen an interest in gays.

    How could it be possible for Mugabe to travel to Europe ,,,never mind his ‘wife’.
    ?
    He is under a travel ban in most countries.

    “Gays have no human rights.”

    “gays as worse than pigs and dogs.”

    “inhuman”

    Shall we bring back slavery?! The bible is in favor of that too. Maybe if they’re busy fighting old battles over their own damn freedom, they’ll have less time and inclination to figuratively and literally demonize gays.

    Furthermore, maybe if we take away womens’ personhood, ‘millions of moms’ and ‘concerned women’ and ‘momscience’ will be busy fighting old battles and will have less time and inclination to campaign against gays.

    Africa is a failed continent. We need to do what we can to reach out to those individuals who are willing to walk out of religious fog, and into reality with compassion. That is the only way forward, for a place in such corruption, and disarray.

    This is the “great leader” who took the flourishing, prosperous country of Rhodesia and turned it into a steaming pile of shite in less than 20 years. He will leave quite a legacy of failure to his starving and destitute people.

    This is a sick man and these are very sick people. Demand that your money, your tax dollars, go no where near Zimbabwe or any country that degrades, destroys and/or murders gay people. We do have power and we need to utilize and focus it.

    Mugabe is horrible and the US needs to do something to 1) help the GLBT population of this and other anti gay countries and 2) punish the politicians who support these laws. Having said this, the number of us who have posted here using comments describing Mugabe as an ape, etc., are JUST AS HORRIBLE as Mugabe calling us non human. Your racism is the same mentality that Mugabe uses to promote killing us. If you can not see that you are no better than he is.

    I’m tired of hearing the repetitive litany of gay hate from Africa. We know this hell hole despises us.The whole continent really.Fill your blog space with something less toxic please.

  10. ISLAM SHALL RULE says

    Entire continents are rejecting gaymerica!
    The awakening has begun and the end of gaymerica, the most vile nation ever to exist, is approaching. Rejoicing is near, justice for Abu Ghraib man-rapes are near, and nuclear weapons will be re-aimed against the evil empire by the real superpowers. Our victory is within sight, In’shallah.

    The primate jokes are just too easy….but let me just say…evolution works in mysterious ways…and sometimes not on our behalf as we can see here.

    Ah, the enlightenment of Africa! How many more eons would Africa have needed to invent the bicycle? indoor plumbing? cars? computers? telephones? vaccines? the wheel?

    Ah Africa!

    @ Islam Shall Rule ;
    so you are a troll.

    But the fall of primitive religions such as Islam cannot be far away. These religions are stuck in social concepts that cannot withstand either affluence or education.

    It has always been the backward nations which are exploited by religion or national fervour , or bothe combined.
    It is as it is in Zimbawewe, bring back the white farmers, let them run the farms on leasehold.
    But get rid of Mugabe; it should have been done long ago. Is there no Army Officer willing to stand up and get rid of him ?

    Mugabe’s comments about gays sound like Hitler’s comments about Jews. I wonder how Mugabe feels about Jews. Ironic that there are many American bigots who would say the same things about Mugabe because he’s black.

    What an ugly world intolerance makes.

  15. Enchantra says

    Mugabe has destroyed his country’s economy by killing, dispossessing, or running off white people. Other than that, he’s doing really well.

    Look in a mirror to see “not human,” Monkey perhaps
    Visited Zimbabwe in late 90s and heard about this creep and how the country would be ruined
    He got it. Crap for country
    Just hope and pray for the gorgeous animals in the wild.

  17. REALLY says

    AND YOU GAYS ARE SUCH HYPOCRITES! YOU DISCRIMINATE AGAINST EACH OTHER BASED ON BODY AND LOOKS! YOU PUT EACH OTHER DOWN IF YOU’RE OVER WEIGHT, NOT WEARING THE RIGHT CLOTHES, USING THE RIGHT DRUGS OR SCREWING THE RIGHT PEOPLE! LOOK AT THIS SITE FOR INSTANCE, THEY NEVER HAVE OVERWEIGHT GAY MEN ON IT. WHY? BECAUSE YOU SEX STARVED MONSTERS!

    @REALY…the anti-gay niqqer who called me a fag has no understanding of evolution. White Europeans did NOT evolve from black Africans. They have a common ancestor, after that evolution has made us into separate sub-species.
    The differences between the two sub-species are too numerous to mention here. The low IQ, high violent nature of black Africans is one of the most obvious.
