Putin mocks U.S. embassy for flying rainbow flag

MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin on Friday mocked the U.S. embassy in Moscow for flying a rainbow flag to celebrate LGBT rights, suggesting it reflected the sexual orientation of its staff.

His comments followed a nationwide vote on constitutional reforms that included an amendment enshrining the definition of marriage specifically as a union between a man and a woman.

Putin said the U.S. embassy’s move to raise the LGBT pride flag “revealed something about the people that work there”.

“It’s no big deal though. We have spoken about this many times, and our position is clear,” said Putin, who has sought to distance Russia from liberal Western values and aligned himself with the Russian Orthodox Church.

“Yes, we passed a law banning the propaganda of homosexuality among minors. So what? Let people grow up, become adults and then decide their own destinies.”

The legislation has been used to stop gay pride marches and detain gay rights activists.


Other countries have also flown rainbow flags outside their embassies in Moscow, including Britain.

Putin doubles down, and yes the church is driving this.

Alternate universe idea: Trump bags the comb-over and shaves the fringes.

That's what I'd do if I had his hair.

There's a definite Lex Luthor vibe about this beyond just the baldness.
Could the comb-over be a secret identity disguise? No lamer than Clark Kent's glasses really.

Bf: Hey, why don't we get a pic you petting the bear?

Gf: That sounds kind of dangerous.
Bf: Naw. These bears belong to the park. They're tame. Go ahead. I'll just snap the pic from the other side of the car.


Note: No one gets hurt this time.

Just a short disputation about the theory of evolution.

Right wing crazy uses public information to compile hit list

That's not how this right leaning site spins it, but I have no reason to assume the basic facts are being misrepresented.

Virginia Man Creates Snitch List of 1,200+ People Who Ratted on Citizens for Violating COVID-19 Edicts

A resident of Forest, Va. has assembled a list of over 1,200 snitches who reported their neighbors for potential violations of the state’s COVID-19 lockdown.

Isaiah Knight compiled the list after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which gave him the name of people who participated in the Soviet-style snitching campaign against their fellow man. He received information from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) that 1,293 people made complaints to authorities.

“The short answer is I wanted to see how many people would rat out Anne Frank. And it’s essentially that,” Knight said.

“What you see on this list from the Department of Health is people’s businesses. You see a lot of people who are complaining about churches. And I just don’t think the government should be telling people whether or not they should be wearing a mask or not,” he added.

Knight does not plan to release the personal information of the snitches, but he wants potential snitches to know that mindlessly complying with government tyranny could have serious consequences.
