  1. The putrid old relic tries to assert the moral high ground? What a joke. No one ever died because of me. Just another buy-bull waving murderous dictator.

  2. mugabe hateful old bastard

  3. 88? Not long to go Mugabe! A lot of people in your country will be dancing on your grave soon!

    1. Keith Shepherd 27 Feb 2012, 2:25pm

      Probably will be more going on his grave than dancing. Is that rain. Umm no.

  4. Indeed they will Brenton. He is one evil man.

  5. why don’t all silly old pricks just die off? 88, closer to grave eh.

    Come on PN.

    A bit slow on the uptake.

    The Telegraph has masses of stories of that odious Odone woman slagging off gays.

    Get with the program.

      Thanks for the link. It’s bizarre, she goes off on a complete tangent and never returns to the promised subject of gay marriage.

      1. Dave North 27 Feb 2012, 4:11pm

        In fairness, even though it’s the TerrorGraph, her argument, if you could call it that, is being shredded.

        1. Scott Lovely 27 Feb 2012, 5:49pm

          The comments are hilarious. I see the militant dominionist trolls are on there ( ” elijahsreturn” – bit of a giveaway ) astroturfing away.

          1. Needless to say she used to be editor of The Catholic Herald- so basically she is just emphasising the position of the RC church. Catholics on Question Time or Any Questions normally lambast gays given the opportunity. Would have been very interesting if the question of Gay Marriage HAD come up on the programme!

  7. Scott Lovely 27 Feb 2012, 2:03pm

    Queen Robert, lol.

  8. ‘It’s even in the Bible that you create through the system of marrying’ – what an utterly ignorant quoting from a book of pure superstition – May I remind this bigot and murderer that children are made by having sex not by getting married – and can I also point out that GAYS are as relevent to the future care and upbringing of all the unwanted babies, abandoned in Zimbabwa every day as those hetro bullies who father them. If marriage is so vital to his concept of the future, why does he and his hetro people abuse it so much and so often?

    1. I think we posted our similar comments at the same time.

  9. “It’s even in the Bible that you create through the system of marrying”. Does he not realise that you create by fornication and that happens whether people are married or not!

    He’s obviously not well versed in teh animal kingdom either where it has been proven in several speicies(sp) that there are same sex relationships.

    The sooner this tyrant stops breathing the better Zimbabwe will be

  10. Oh hurry up and die Mugabe – you bigotted, savage, primitive old f***.

    1. Staircase2 27 Feb 2012, 3:08pm

      ‘savage’…
      …’primative’….?

      Is it not possible for you to separate your justifiable condemnation of Mugabe’s homophobic behaviour from your own racism?

      You do a disservice to the healthy stuff you say by adding racist and cliched colonialist words into the mix…

      1. Bollocks! Your own assumption that dAvid is “colonialist’ is itself racist.

      2. Oh, Shut up you politically correct twit – this man is a murderer and tyrant – often this type of human being are legitimately described as Savage and Primative… I’d add that your latant racism is triggering this outburst! think on

      3. Staircase – please explain why describing Robert Mugabe as a ‘bigotted, savage, primiitve, old f*** is racist’.

        How can a 100% accurate description of Mugabe be racist?

        I’ll tell you what – why don’t you ignore my posts from now on as clearly your crazy little rant is to do with your own apparent issues with me. Anger management therapy may help.

  11. Doubtless he’s a member of the Christian Institute.

  12. He says to hell with gays and to hell with Cameron … I say to hell with Mugabe!

    The ramblings of a senile man (tertiary syphillis?) have about as much relevance to a decent moral society as Pol Pot.

    Mugabes duplicitous xenophobic, racist and homophobic attitudes and history of torture and state sponsored murder will be his legacy rather than any so called morality.

    As for homosexuality being a European cultural issue, how does he explain the homosexuals in Congo in pre Christian times (ie pre colonial Africa) … homosexuality is most definitely global, not European, not western, not Asian, not African – global

  13. jamestoronto 27 Feb 2012, 2:46pm

    More sick utterances from an oppressive dictator of yet another failed state. Bellow out this filth all he wants because in the end he is just one man on the threshold of death. There will be a lot of sighs of relief and lot of cheers when this madman is dead.

  14. There’s hope that in the long run his homophobia will be a good thing
    You know you picked the right side, when Robert Mugabe is on the other one.
    So, maybe, hopefully, when he goes, everything he stood for, will fall as a package.

    After all, it happened before. The very first Western nation to decriminalize homosexual acts was France in 1791, eager to cancel out any suppression of personal freedom after the Revolution. A more recent example is Russia, where decriminalization came in 1993 with one of the new state’s very first major updates to the Soviet penal code (by the way, if you ask me, if it hadn’t been done back then, in the short period of liberal idealism, it would be standing very very strong now).

  15. Anthony Carter 27 Feb 2012, 2:48pm

    I’ve always found Mugabe’s vicious hysteria strange, sad, creepy. You’ve only to see him in the flesh to realise how camp he actually is.

    1. Staircase2 27 Feb 2012, 3:04pm

      …amen!

      1. “amen!”, from the Hebrew Bible?, obviously you are a Jewish religious zealot!? and as such, you hate gays, Christians and Muslims?

        You call dAVID a racist for saying “savage” and “primative”? without a shred of evidence for it!
        Know how it feels?

  16. Sill old man….Times almost up and still he hates

  17. This man cant stop attacking us peaceful gays… time God calls him to come in front of him,, and then send him to hell…. he is a devil… and then he is where he belongs….

  18. Staircase2 27 Feb 2012, 3:03pm

    He really is an ignorant old tosser isn’t he…

    None of what he says actually makes any sense either – its like he’s taken a bible, cut it up into pieces and reassembled it at random then put the results thru google translator on a bad day when the server’s down…

    What a tosser!

    1. Scott Lovely 27 Feb 2012, 11:50pm

      Then he must have one of those American homespun translations for evangelicals, with added words like “homosexuals”.

  19. It’s time for western countries to cut off aid to Uganda. The sooner that government collapses, the better. Mr. Mugabe will not be missed.

    1. Scott Lovely 27 Feb 2012, 11:51pm

      Wrong country, dear.

      1. same continent though.

  20. UK human rights task force and david cameron, had better not let zimbawae get away with telling them to go to hell, i told you before, a terrorist is a terrorist he is not some one you invite to dinner an pat on the head an think that he is going to not bother anyone esle after you have pointed out his wrongs, look at sadam , bin ladden, gadaffi, these people dig there hills in and thumb there nose at americans trying to save their country from oblivian , you must stop wasting time, fooling with conversations with these african countries, you must go in and take that man out of that office and get liberty in to those african countries, you must warn the african countries after you take the dictators out they must find and the uk must help them find a person who is a human rights person that will not damage their counry or the right of the people they must be a democrat, they need a woman president in these african countries where the hell are the women, hillary needs to get busy too

  21. stop percrastonating an take action against these dictators , they never listen to you anyway, without action, havent you learned anyting by sadam and gadafi and ladin, their minds are warped and sered, with evil , they eat and sleep evil the do evil , everyday that all they do , kill murder rape, thats all these animals do no only to the gay they kill murder and rape their children and women anyone, that what they do, their evil , they are satanic orders of occults, uncivilezed in everyway and do no want those people to have their freedoms there barbarians, they need to tell that evil african man, how about lets give him to the white demons of the south there wicked slavery in history, and lets see how much freedom he would want for him self his rights then, , but i tell you on thing you cannot allow this monster no matter what color he is to continue to genocide and commit crimes against innocent people out of his evil hatred and bigotry he is an old evil fool, but he is dangerous.

  22. What is the best thing about Mugabe?
    His age.

  23. uk and britain , the terrorist has told you to kiss his ass and go to hell, now you need to put you spine together, and take actions in order to protect the lives and liberty and freedom security of the countries people over there and help put a good democrat in, get culvert operations and go in an get the man out of the parliment and cover more than one at the same time, there are other dictators you must remove in one sweep you should have several wicked presidents and dictators accosted, with undercover plans, what is wrong you dont all ready, have tactics underway, you told these people already the same thing several times , they are not listening what is wrong with you uk are you listening , TAke action they are not lilstening, now you listen, and act so that they will start listening,and do not harm the people, the dictator and his evil group is who you are after

  24. The democratic party must always be put in place and overhauled from within, there can be no foundations that is good with goodwill measures , without a people liberty government, none, stop looking at obama, he cannot do much of anything if the rest of the democrats do not back him, you just elet the democratic party, and the democratic pary of all colors and the human rights people and outside human rights jugdes will and should step in if they need to if obama tries to do anything that will damage the country , you dont let him weaken the nations military, we are in the worst war time ever, dont let him weaken the domestic programs and help aids to poor and middle class families , we are in the worst recession ever, you dont let him sit on his ass and not tap the gas reserves, families drive in an out of town to jobs everyday for their families an children, where the hell is this man loyalty and empathy, you dont let him violate the benefits of gay military families he owes them,

  25. “In October last year, Tsvangirai stood up for gay rights in a dramatic change of direction saying he hoped a new state constitution would “come out with freedom of sexual orientation” describing such freedoms as a “human right””.

    there is hope for zimbabwe

  26. there must be a flat foundation across the nation of human rights, are there will be masses of abuses like now , people being wronged, in everyway, masses of people hurt, and mistreated like in this twisted mans counry and most african countries and other foreigns , but united states is gu;ilty of wrong dooing to its own people the republican bigots are the dictators in the united states , the few that is now denouncing them and running as independents while standing for equal rights, makes them look even more evil, republicans do nothing for anyone the are the ones who have a track record in trying to block all help aids except a few of them, that has spine at all, the democrats are the only ones who have passed and tried pass positive legislation on behalf of all the people , the do need overhauling and an issues dealt with , but they have done the most for the naion, it must be a rainbow, democracy, on human rights not a obama democracy , or a klan democracy, not personal egos

  27. I really wish he would hurry up and die!

  28. Carrie,

    I think it might be best for you to do a blog, rather than put all your comments on here. You could post a link to your blog, and then we can read them at leisure.

    I think you raise some great points, but I find it difficult to read them all and I tend now to just ignore them, because they are difficult to read without punctuation, I just see words jumping at me like “government”, “terrorist” “obama”, ” families”….

    Also, short comments have more impact. I saw where you commented around 8 times in a row with huge spiels of speech. Be precise in your comments. Remember the topic because you often go way off topic.

    Thanks, Dx

    What do you expect from an orthodox Roman Catholic?

    1. Scott Lovely 27 Feb 2012, 11:54pm

      Strange, we were told he was a Marxist when he came to power.

  30. Just one mans opinion Mugabe’s! his own opinion! Clearly though other people in his country like Tsvangirai have different views and outlooks to inspire change and offer hope and encouragement to the future peoples of their country.

    There is no hope for Mugabe! The passing of this dictator will leave the door open a wind of change, more liberal views and chance of greater democracy. If Tsvangirai can speak out now hopefully others will do likewise. Death after all has a certain finality to it.

  31. “The bash was estimated to have cost US$500 000 but other media reports say the party could have cost up to US$1 million.

    Most Zimbabweans are struggling to survive due to economic problems and diseases such as typhoid and HIV and Aids.

    More than 80% of the people survive on less than a dollar a day.

    Thousands of villagers in the countryside are surviving on one meal a day supplied mostly by international charitable organisations.”

    — allAfrica.com, Feb. 27/’12

    Mugabe has no right top pass judgement on anyone if you ask me.

    1. Scott Lovely 27 Feb 2012, 11:59pm

      These African dictators use the fear of gays as a distraction from the really bad things they are actually up to.

      Actually that probably applies everywhere, like Republicans in America too.

  32. “Mugabe previously dubbed the UK’s approach to redirecting aid away from central governments who deny gays equal rights “satanic”.”

    Considering your views on the gay community Mugabe, might it not be wise not to slate us, because quite a number of gay guys might have given money to a good cause that is working in your country. Why don’t you donate some of the money you have stashed away to a gay charity?

  33. evil brainwashed old twat the sooner the uk redirects aid away from africa the better

  34. GingerlyColors 28 Feb 2012, 7:50am

    Miserable birthday to you,
    Squashed tomatos and stew,
    Bread and butter in the gutter,
    Miserable birthday to you,
    Mr. Mugabe.

  35. George Broadhead 28 Feb 2012, 9:30am

    Quoting from Wikipedia: ” Mugabe was raised as a Roman Catholic, studying in Marist Brothers and Jesuit schools, including the exclusive Kutama College, headed by an Irish priest, Father Jerome O’Hea, who took him under his wing. Through his youth, Mugabe was never socially popular nor physically active and spent most of his time with the priests or his mother when he was not reading in the school’s libraries.”

    Mugabe attended the funeral of the previous pope.

    1. He did indeed by invitation too. He subsequently attended a beatification ceremony for JP II.
      I can just imagine Mugabe and Ratzinger at the Vatican, in their house robes, glasses of Cognac and Cuban cigars.

    2. Hopefully the current Pope will be attending the funeral of Mugabe in the near future…

  36. How long is this grotesque buffoon going to last?

    1. GingerlyColors 28 Feb 2012, 2:27pm

      Not very long I hope.

  37. Forget about ‘baboon Mugabe’ – but on the topical issue of homosexuality, this is a non-starter in most African cultures. I guess it’s a ‘black thing’ and well, we all still have our right to speak out don’t we? Even if it is about being anti-gay marriage….

    1. Im sorry I dont understand a word of what you just said.

      I also object you racialising the discussion by adding the word ‘baboon’

      This is not the way to debate this – nor is being so ignorant as to call ‘it’ a ‘black thing’….that makes absolutely no sense and just makes you sound like a raving racist looking for an excuse….

      How do you think that makes black people on these pages feel?

      What makes you think that everyone here is ‘white’ in the first place…?

      Or that, in any real way, black people en mass all think the same way about issues the world over?

      Pink News needs to remove your post

      1. Thank you very much! I’m black and African and I found that comment tinged with hatred. there are a lot of white homophobic people. Does that make it a “white thing”? Not so long ago, were gay men in the uk not imprisoned for buggery?

    2. Are there no homophobic white people? Were gay men not arrested for buggery until the late 60s here in the uk. Homosexuality has been in existence in Africa for hundreds of years. Your comment smacks of ignorance and bigotry
