    That Robert Mugabe – he really knows how to spice up a funeral!

    1. Where did he get “British Gaydom” from? Does he mean the United Gaydom?

      What a ridiculous man. Would be funny if he hadn’t sent millions of people into poverty through his nutjob policies

  2. I bet he’s glad Zimbabwe has no oil.

  3. I’m so glad this backward country withdrew form the Commonwealth. I wish others would, starting with Jamaica, or better yet, boot them out if they can’t comply with human rights violations.

    At least we don’t need a suitcase full of money just to buy a loaf of bread!

    Zimbabwe is the only country I know of that you can work all week and your pay can not even buy you one nights dinner because of hyper inflation.

    Still Robert Mugabe don’t mind the suffering of his people as long a he pocket all the money from its diamonds.

    The scary thing is that RSA is protecting this man and Zuma is making also homophobic noises. This is why we should hold the FCO at it’s word and put pressure see: http://bit.ly/GME0350 It is a pity PinkNews has not published this story as it can help mobilise people and organisations into a possible important partnership.

  6. A great pity. Ordinary Zimbabweans tend to be very accepting of homosexuality. Let’s hope and pray that Zim gets its Tahrir Square moment!

    Mugabe — Иди на хуй!

  8. Anti gay protesting at funeral, has he joined westbro baptist church?

  9. the only filth is you Mugabe – please hurry up and die

  10. I guess the fat from all those elephant stakes isn’t doing its business, seeing how he is still alive.

    No amount of redemption or enlightenment is going to cut it here. This monster simply needs to die.

  11. It’d be nice to believe that Zimbabwe would have a chance once this thoroughly revolting excuse for a human being dies (the sooner the better). Sadly there are too many people in Zimbabwe who believe in this monster and his policies, so plenty will step up into his place.

    And yet our delightful government still gives hundreds of millions of pounds to his regime. Time to close the bank and let the country have it’s own Tahrir Square moment.

      Whilst I agree, there is a fear that once he goes whoever he has placed as successor will have to make their mark which will mean more bloodshed. Yet another dictator who goes by the rule if you let your country men starve they can’t revolt whilst living in the land of luxury themselves.

      The idea of them having their own Tahrir Quare sounds good but it will more likely be a full on civil war. This is why these problems Should be sorted by African nations but they always either ignore or just act to slow, which is why the Western world then intervenes then gets it in the next for doing so. Though yes if they had oil it might be quicker.

  12. Why has no one nuked this c..t off the face of the earth yet?

  13. Eddy (the other one) 14 Apr 2011, 8:14pm

    The mind boggles that someone so stupid can be the leader of a country………… then I remember Bush, Thatcher, Regan, hitler, mao…………..and the list goes on. Democracy reflects how stupid an entire population can be to vote them into power. Dictators like Mugabe reflect how stupid the rest of the world is to let them take power. Why can’t MI5 just send someone in to take him out? The vile idiot has created enough suffering for the people of that country.

  14. It’s ok, he’ll be dead soon.

    :D

    It’s only a matter of time and this tyrant will be no more.I am sure Zimbabwe will rejoice his passing. What a legacy to leave behind.

    1. Jock S. Trap 15 Apr 2011, 8:21am

      Your assuming he hasn’t already chosen a successor who is either equally as bad or even worse.

  16. He needs to be removed.

  17. I don’t know if I really care – I think he’s filth too.

  18. He should move to Uganda they would like him there. Corrupt, murderous, homophobic…. Part of the family.

    His own people hate him and think totally different to him.

  19. Good grief. You lot and your childish wishes for death. You think that that will make it all better for your bumming. The thing is, Mugabe is just an educated version of your average rape ape and his she-boon. And their criminally minded niglets everywhere. The bigotry will just continue, because a murder monkey always needs another ‘tribe’ to hate.

      racist idiot.

  20. Luke from Canada 15 Apr 2011, 1:26am

    he must H8 Canada then

  21. Jock S. Trap 15 Apr 2011, 8:11am

    As said, nothing new, he’s getting very boring. However he remains dangerous to his country. Don’t think his comments can be taken seriously considering how he treats the people who oppose him.

  22. Sieg Heil! – Adolf Mugabe – gay hater – jew hater = same difference.

  23. Given his track record I think I’d be more concerned if he did approve of me…
    Never mind the rampant inflation and being the worst South African dictator since Idi Amin.
    I just feel sorry for the people of Zimbabwe who can’t even afford this week’s groceries, let alone have surplus energy left to depose the evil little crackpot.

  24. Odd that he used a funeral as a platform for this type of speech.

    When you watch Mugabe closely his movements are a little effeminate don’t you think ?

    1. He used the funeral as a platform because thousands of people attended. No way is he going to miss this golden opportunity!

      Sheer class.

  25. There are straight men – they like to f*** women. There are gay men – they like to f*** men.

    Then there’s Mugabe – he likes to f*** an entire country.

  26. Didn’t Mugabe voice his support for the Tories prior to the election last year?

    1. andrew howard-williams 15 Apr 2011, 1:32pm

      Yes as you can see from this link he did.

      If Cameron supports this Neanderthal Dictator then that makes Cameron as bad as he is. We should all start voting at local elections to vote Cameron’s People out of Councils and also representing people at Parliament.

      I would rather vote Labour back in as better the devil you know than the one you don’t.

  27. Too bad this African man doesn’t know his OWN history and doesn’t realize that if FACT Britain didn’t bring homosexuality to, and impose homosexuality upon, his continent and country but rather brought and imposed HOMOPHOBIA upon his continent and country.

  28. Yes, as someone above says, he will be dead soon but what difference will it make? Morgan Tsvangirai was the great shining hope when he fought the last election and “lost” (read: which was stolen by Mugabe’s ruling regime, yet again) but when he ended up in a power sharing coalition with Bob, he turned out to be pretty vile on the issue of human rights as they may apply to Zimbabwe’s besieged gay community.

  29. This was relevant to Menard Muzariri’s funeral how?

  30. Peter Paul Fuchs 15 Apr 2011, 6:14pm

    Well, with enemies that we are in good shape friends!!! Also, sometimes I wonder where all the reactionaries in the United States will go when gay people really do have their rights conclusively, and the culture firmly acknowledges it. For instance, the people in the US who run organizations like the National Organization for Marriage (the ever creepy NOM), or centers of anti-gay theorizing like the Catholic legal site called The Mirror of Justice, or the American Principles Project, which was so mad that a conservative conference was allowing in Log Cabin Republicans and others, that they started a (failed) boycott. This last one shows that could not even stand to be in the same auditorium with gay people, so benighted is their sense of human fellow-feeling. So where will people like Robert George or Maggie Gallagher and Ed Whelan go. Well, now I know. They will have a fine life and be very comfie living in Zimbabwe, under the type of guy they agree with, Mr. Mugabe.

  31. I agree with Mr. Mugabe!
    Good shot, man!
    Perfect!

  32. THANK gOD[as a metaphor] that i live in a superior country where we respect civilisation and human beings,and not despotic primates who pose as human,but whom are nothing less than deviant,misfits,inverts and perverts themselves mugabe is a murderer and an ill educated tyrant on his last legs the filthy lod man and vile hetty suffocateing in his own putrid manure and thats just his breath let alone arm pits.

    1. You are racist. Shame on you!

    2. @AL. What you’ve scribbled reads like the sort of screed common to fundie fag-bashers. :-(

    It was us ‘Gay Filth’ that recently gave Zimbabwe £18,000,000 in foreign aid. If he had oil he would have been kicked out by the Yanks years ago under ‘regime change’. At least Saddam Hussein didn’t seem to have a problem with homosexuality!

    1. Yeah Saddam was all for live and let live…

  34. johnny33308 16 Apr 2011, 8:47pm

    Well, Mugabe certainly does know filth, as evidenced by his large Mercedes driving on all of Zimbabwe’s super highways (dirt paths) and the cesspool he has turned his country into. Oh, yes, he does know filth, indeed. It is what he himself is constructed of.

  35. That’s rich coming from an evil man

  36. john sharp 18 Apr 2011, 2:23pm

    from a leader who murders all is opponants , he does have cheek
    i am then filth thansk mugabe the murderer
    i do not think you have any legitemacy to talk on issues you fail to understand
    hope to talk to you on your trial for human rights abuse

    1. Sodomy is clean,but a bit pooey & can lead to bleedi.g & disease. Painful too, but fisting must be horrendous. Robert,old chap, you don’t know what yr missin !
