Russia's State Duma approves bill to ban 'LGBT propaganda'

Source: CNN

Russia’s lower house of parliament passed in the third reading amendments to a law on so-called “LGBT propaganda” on Thursday, expanding liability to all ages.

The discriminatory law proposes to ban all Russians from promoting or “praising” homosexual relationships or publicly suggesting that they are “normal.”

The original version of the law adopted in 2013 banned “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” among minors. The new iteration would apply the law to adults as well.

Individuals who spread or attempt to distribute what the bill calls “LGBT propaganda” will be fined up to 400,000 rubles ($6,600). Legal entities can be fined up to 5 million rubles ($82,100). Foreigners can be arrested for up to 15 days or deported, according to the bill

1. Someone in the new House Republican majority will probably introduce a similar bill.

2. Yes the GOP is modeling itself after Russia, China, Saudi.

The GOP wants what the leaders of those countries have.
Total power and access to the country's wealth.

5. Putin to ban 'LGBT propaganda'

Fix it for CNN. The Duma is about as silly as Saddam's legislature.

9. Another Piece of Evidence That Putin Controls the GOP

Between Trunk trying to emulate him and Tucker Carlson cheerleading for him, the Republican party has pretty much become a party of Russian puppets.

16. I've noticed the Putin/Russia supporters on the left have been quiet about this

I can see the route that conservatives take in their wrongheaded support for Russia. However, I have a much more difficult time understanding how people who claim to be left of center, or more commonly, leftists, justify their support.

I find them more frustrating, because I know they understand that they are supporting something bad. But their campist view of the world makes them unwilling to oppose anything that they view as anti-west

11. One has to wonder what will happen

Once they start arresting 10 year old boys for kissing their father goodbye in public? Hey Pootie, a pogrom is a pogrom. The fact that you are now going to go after children to show your might is more than disgusting. It is evil. Remember that when your country cracks under the weight of tyranny.
