Russia Says Gays Will be Subject to Arrest at the Winter Olympics!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_635/russia.jpg

RussiaA Russian official said gay athletes and visitors attending the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics will be subject to arrest. The news comes on the heels of the International Olympic Committee, or IOC, promising on Friday that athletes and visitors will not be affected by the ban on “homosexual propaganda,” which outlaws public events from promoting equal rights and the public display of affection by same-sex couples. President Vladimir Putin signed the ban in June. Vitaly Milonov, a St. Petersburg politician who co-sponsored the country’s new “non-traditional relationships” bill ban, told Interfax that the law cannot be suspended for the games… Milonov said the government cannot choose to selectively enforce the law. He admitted he did not personally know any lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people. “I can say that the best figure skating in the world is the Soviet school of figure skating,” he said. “All of our people have been brought up in a very traditional way, I am personally acquainted with many Olympic champions. In fact, I practically grew up among many of those families.”

Aha.  So that’s it.  Putin and this Milonov creep think our Olympic figure skaters are so very, very gay and theirs are so very, very straight and that’s what this whole “gay propaganda” ban is really all about.  I should’ve known this was all just a ruse to intimidate American skaters with these jackbooted thug tactics.  That was the Putin’s plan all along.  Because a Russian don’t take a dump without a plan, son.  Well I’ve got news for you, comrades.  For starters, not all our skaters are gay, got it?  Remember the name Evan Lysacek?  He’s the one who mopped the ice with your boy Evgeni Plushenko at Vancouver.  And he’s so straight, he was banging world class hottie Tanith Belbin on the regular.  Or maybe Scotty Hamilton rings a bell because he’s another Olympic champ who’s arrow-straight.  Not to mention Brian Boitano and Dick Button.  They both won gold and no one ever called them gay.  Not that it matters to us.  We support our gay Olympians, not pass draconian laws to harass them like you, you Super Bowl ring-stealing bastards.  Besides, if you think you can intimidate our openly gay skaters with your stupid laws you’ve got another thing coming.  Johnny Weir not only skated in a swan costume, he took a bath with his platonic male friend Paris on his Reality show.  If he’s not afraid to do those things, for sure he’s not afraid of you and your little baton-wielding Bolsheviks.  So nice try, Putin.  But America will not be bullied.  We didn’t back down in the Cold War, Eastern Europe, Red Dawn, Rocky IV or Miracle, and our figure skaters will not back down in Sochi.  @JerryThornton1
