Russian Neo-Nazis Are Torturing Gays On YouTube
Things just keep getting worse for Russia’s gays.
Last month, President Putin signed into law a bill that classifies any “homosexual propaganda” — which really means anything that shows homosexuality in any sort of positive light — as pornography. He then followed it with a bill allowing police officers to arrest and detain any foreigners suspected of being gay — or even just “pro-gay.”
Now, Russian skinhead Maxim Martsinkevich (known by the tasteful nickname Cleaver) has started a new group called “Occupy Pedophilyaj.” The group is ostensibly against pedophilia but, in reality, only seems to target young gay teens who respond to personal ads advertising same-sex dates. When the boys show up for the “dates,” they are bullied incessantly and often tortured — several had urine poured on them, or were beaten and forced to pose with sex toys. Some are painted. And the complete encounters are videotaped and put online for all to see, forcibly outing gay teens into a less-than-friendly national environment.
