An English-language Ukrainian news website (link here) is reporting from the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta that the Chechen dictator Ramzan Kadyrov has established internment camps for gay men. Kadyrov has been accused many times before of persecuting and even killing LGBT Chechens, and now he has taken his persecution to a new extreme.

Chechnya is an autonomous region of Russia brutally ruled by crime mobs under Kadyrov's control. Kadyrov himself was hand-picked by anti-LGBT Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin to run Chechnya. Putin, of course, has also persecuted LGBT Russians in his own right.

The Obama Administration had long condemned both Kadyrov and Putin for their LGBT persecution. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has repeatedly praised Putin, whose disciple Kadyrov is running gay concentration camps.

If Trump was truly a friend of the LGBT community, as his administration and some supporters have claimed, he would speak out against LGBT persecution like this. President Obama did. Why is Trump silent?

His refusal to speak out is yet another reason why his claims of being pro-LGBT are nothing short of ludicrous.

  1. Here is an article from one of my best French friend, Franck, that is very concern about gay bashing trough out the world.
    (His blog is in English to reach most of the world people.)


    For many years now he's putting in from the nonsense of death penalty in the world even in USA.

    For what will be doing «Trumpty Dumpty» about it is very difficult to judge by now because HE often do the contrary of what he promised.

    He is so unpredictable and more, even frightening in some point of view.

    LGBT of your country are to be aware that the future isn't quite nice.

    USA «Land of Liberty»?
    Which kind of Liberty is it?


Speak up!
