    The Quadrennium Winter Olypiad is devouring its host Parasite.

    I’m getting a bit tired of all this (State Dept. fuelled) Russia bashing. I don’t recall any indignation when the winter olympics were held in Utah, which has similar anti-gay laws as Russia.

    • American Cannibal

      I think people are taking issue with the general hatred for gays that are on display in Russia: The public beatings, arrests, etc. It’s difficult to take Putin’s Toadies seriously when they say things like, “Please don’t touch the kids.” The Deputy PM said that, btw.

      Putin-Russia’s attitude is as backwards as Mormon-Utah’s attitudes, but at least in Utah, it wasn’t state policy to assault gays and gay supporters. Also, there were protests against the Olympics in Utah, but they obviously didn’t get as much media coverage — there were no compelling images to communicate the story effectively. America’s attitude toward gays has also changed since then, so it’s a bigger story now to cover the anti-gay abuses in Russia then it would have been four/eight years ago. Times are a changing! Be happy about that.

      They got busy criticizing what happens in other peoples backyards. Meanwhile… Characters like Rob Ford slipped into their own backyards? Trudeau is their new hope.

      • American Cannibal

        Rob Ford is a great character, very enjoyable, scary and a wonderful alternative to the professional hypocrites.

          He’s the rotten fruit of a plush tree. The fated low branch from which he was plucked, then foisted upon the cart. Latter chemically poisoned, his flesh splitting so that he may spread spoil and folly upon the fruit that grudgingly cradles him. Nay, flesh eater! He is a blight!

          • American Cannibal

            And blight makes good teevee.

          True. But this psa is humorous. There are worse things to waste 30 seconds on.

Very powerful PSA. OK, not really a PSA. It's a parody. I hope.
