Warren Kinsella Calls Jews Gay, Compares Russians To Nazis

The secret leader of the Liberal Party has written an article in outrage over the Olympic games being held in Sochi.

Mr. Kinsella is well-known in Canadian political circles. He became famous for suing people. He sues Ezra Levant every time Ezra steps out of his house. Despite being a staunch Liberal, himself,  he has also sued the last Lib PM, Paul Martin.

To protect myself from getting sued I'd like to stipulate that this is a satirical blog. Maybe.

In his article he says:

The Sochi games haven’t been controversial because Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin has avowedly anti-Jewish policies, like Hitler did. Putin has a different target: gays and lesbians. In most other respects, Sochi and Berlin, however, bear eerie similarities. The boycott debate has been heard before. And the result will be the same as it was in Berlin: the boycott efforts will fail, and the Sochi games will go ahead.

They shouldn’t. While the Olympic Games are indeed about athletics, anyone who suggests they are without profound political value is an idiot. Hitler certainly believed as much, and he used Berlin to provide a smokescreen for his military plans, and the Holocaust itself. The Olympics, he enthused, “awakens the best human characteristics. It doesn’t separate, but unites the combatants in understanding and respect. It also helps to connect the countries in the spirit of peace. That’s why the Olympic Flame should never die.” 

Sounds like a modern-day politician, doesn’t he? Hitler knew the Olympics’ propaganda value. He used the 1936 Berlin games for agit-prop, covering the Olympic complex with Nazi banners, and giddily promoted Aryan athleticism. The Berlin games achieved their objective: no less than the New York Times later declared that Berlin brought Nazi Germany back “in the fold of nations” and “made them human again.” 

Putin, as you may have heard, doesn’t like gays very much. He has passed what he calls “homosexual propaganda” law. It outlaws promotion of “non-traditional sexual relations.” It prohibits parents and teachers from telling young Russians that gay relationships normal. It also bans pamphlets promoting gay rights. Anti-gay violence in Russia has accordingly surged, and vigilante groups have formed to hunt down LGBT Russians online. 

 In the lead-up to the games being held at the Black Sea resort town, however, Putin has also made reassuring sounds about understanding and respect. Sounding rather like a certain German chancellor, Putin told the head of the International Olympic Committee that “we will do everything to make sure that athletes, fans and guests feel comfortable at the Olympic Games regardless of their ethnicity, race or sexual orientation. I would like to underline that.”

I left a comment on his blog about this and he failed to publish it. That's just plain censorship. I wrote:

That's racist! Comparing Russians to Nazis and leaving out the Chinese. You didn't raise a big stink about the Beijing Olympics in 2008 because China is apparently a Mecca for human rights. You wouldn't scrutinize the Chinese because they're not white. Also their flag probably reminds you of the logo of the party you're a member of.
