  1. Same stupid twunt who wet her pants because Canada wouldn’t let her hatemongering backside across their border?

    Is this a bit of a tantrum, or just proving that the Canadians were spot on and we should join them in suggesting that the odious sow shove her stupid wig where the sun doesn’t shine.

    1. Exactly. She’s butthurt because of Canada and now she’s going to take it out on gay people. Pathetic power play.

      And I just can’t with that bench wig.

  2. We just want to confirm the influence your colonialist missionaries and evangelicals have had and still have over us.

    1. Yes, without the missionaries interference you would be running the world now. Everyone knows that.

    2. Isn’t it about time you grew up and started thinking for yourselves for a change without blaming everyone else on the planet? If you don’t like your colonialist past bloody change it then!

      As you know, Canada is also a former colony, but we have managed to throw off those nasty influences of: “the West, the colonialist missionaries and the extremist evangelicals.” The only difference between you and us is that we have education and judicial systems that promote tolerance, understanding, compassion and reason. Shame on you!

    4. Could that headdress be any more British? I’m in the US and I don’t know the technicalities of these things, but the apparatus she’s wearing just screams England to me, either a court or a political body.

      I’m not making fun. It’s just that she claims Uganda doesn’t “share values” with Canada or the UK, and there she sits in the most British of all headpieces.

      (I will apologize if I’ve got this essentially wrong.)

    5. When i doubt — blame de white man. Works every time

    Corrupt criminals who will one day find themselves at the Hague Court of Human Rights. I guarantee that Bahati will be on trial there one day along with other members of the criminal government of Uganda.

  4. shes the stupid ,ignorant one !!

  5. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-20155281

    No more aid to Uganda no more free money to oppress its people by criminals.

  6. This black woman should not be allowed into any civilised, western country

    1. Neville

      I agree that a travel ban should be imposed on anyone involved in that appalling legislation.

      But …. there was no need to mention her skin colour in your post. That is completely irrelevant.

      1. Jesus Mohammed 31 Oct 2012, 8:48pm

        Wrong. This black woman, as opposed to many other black women, should not be allowed into any civilised western country.

        I’m eating a carrot. It’s orange. Get over it!

        1. Switch your brain on, Jesus M.

          We can all see from the photo she is black. All he needed to say was “this woman.” Adding the word “black” implies her skin colour is relevant to the travel ban. It isn’t.

          She has a nose as well. How about “this woman with a nose should be given a travel ban”? No need, is there? Because having a nose is irrelevant. Compare, “I am going to buy a pound of orange carrots.”

          Racism isn’t any better than homophobia, you know.

        2. ...Paddyswurds 1 Nov 2012, 8:25pm

          @ j…M…..
          ………..However you don’t say ” I am eating an orange carrot. Your unnecessary mention of this vile woman’s skin colour is racist, nothing more or less and your infantile “orange carrot” analogy is typical of the standard racist…..

  7. One stupid ass bitch, calling someone ignorant and arrogant, maybe she should look at herself in the mirror.

  8. There needs to be a progressive revolution in that appalling country.

    Again, an example of the link between poverty, lack of education, religious indoctrination and oppression of minorities by the heartless and irredeemably stupid.

    Here’s hoping for a wealthy, secular, educated, politically progressive and free Uganda: and as soon as possible.

  9. This legislation is a crime and I think it’s about time the non-aligned movement distanced itself from policies like this, before the situation becomes more polarised and essentialising, ahistorical myths of what constitutes “Western values” and “African values” (disseminated by the Christian Right) gain currency.

    North American and European diplomatic intervention, I’m afraid, has its limits. We really should learn from Zimbabwe’s predicament that sanctions, conditional aid and political posturing actually serve to strengthen and legitimise nasty dictators. Want to eliminate cruelty in the world? Act on it.

    The Obama Administration has some stern words for countries that persecute gays and lesbians and yet American gay-basher Scott Lively, who participated in the Ugandan anti-gay crackdown as it unfolded and who is wanted by the Center for Constitutional Rights and Frank Mugisha himself for crimes against humanity, remains at large in their jurisdiction. Why is that?

  10. Lvyda Uganda 31 Oct 2012, 8:58pm

    We shall overcome one day, Kadaga with her foolish Ugandan Legislators supporting this autocratic bill will be history, we are staying strong on the ground and God will hear our cries. Besides Speaker Rebecca Kadaga does not have an official husband, let her explain why?

    1. That There Other David 31 Oct 2012, 9:02pm

      My guess is because she has an extremely ugly character, and when someone criticises her she acts like a child.

    2. An ‘official’ husband? Does this mean that she is allowed an un-official one too? If so then that makes her a hypocrite!

  11. This vile wench should be barred internationally – send her to the moon or something. I don’t think there are any homosexuals there, so she’ll be fine. What a vile woman.

  12. friday jones 31 Oct 2012, 10:03pm

    Let me translate the Ugandan government’s position using my patented Bullscheiss-to-English translator: “We are too busy being the big fish in a little pond to address the terrible hunger, disease, and social injustices in our country, but we’ll take a harsh stance against a minority comprising less than 2% of the population, because it’s cheap and easy and panders to superstitious people. Doing real work is hard, but kicking crutches is easy!”

  13. friday jones 31 Oct 2012, 10:10pm

    “Twunt, odious sow, stupid ass bitch, vile wench.” Is it possible for people to condemn this woman and her foolish statements WITHOUT resorting to outright misogyny? How come you guys think these epithets are OK, but you carefully refrain from employing race-based epithets?

    Gay men get no free passes for misogyny in my book. It’s wrong to be homophobic, and it’s equally wrong to be misogynistic.

    1. friday

      I’m afraid that racism has crept into a couple of posts as well.

      When some people get angry, they seem to be willing to go for the “no holds barred” approach.

      Unfortunately, being LGBT has never been an automatic guarantee against racist attitudes.

    2. Well, woman to woman between me and Kadaga, I may choose a few select words to illustrate my utter contempt for her. She has only one word for me – dead. So frankly, I’m not going to shed any tears for her apparent victimhood.

  14. Kick them out of the Commonwealth and suspend all foreign aid to them unless they decide to abandon this murderous homophobic stupidity attack once and for all.

    1. That There Other David 31 Oct 2012, 11:39pm

      No chance of that I’m afraid. Most of the Commonwealth countries are African or Caribbean states, not exactly known for respecting their own LGBT populations.

      1. Britain needs to leave the Commonwealth.

        It is a ridiculous anachronism in 2012.

        It’s not like we gain any advantage by being linked to backward dumps like Uganda.

  15. jonnielondon 31 Oct 2012, 11:39pm

    Psychologists tell us that gay people are often the worst offenders of gaybashings and bullying. This “lady” doth protest a little too loudly!

  16. Dave North 1 Nov 2012, 1:13am

    The smug piety is simply oozing out of her sanctimonious mug shot.

    PS: If you are using christianity to hate gay people, then please remember:

    1 Timothy 2:12

    “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

    1. This is part of the problem isn’t it? These people select the parts of scripture that they feel is relevant to their hatred of LGBT and forget completely about sections like that which you have posted.

  17. Cardinal Capone 1 Nov 2012, 1:30am

    Sounds like she’s having a hissy fit.

  18. Cardinal Capone 1 Nov 2012, 1:51am

    Maybe they are waiting to see if Romney wins the US election before reintroducing the bill. I doubt he will be as pro-active in saving gay people’s lives as Obama and Hilary. And the death penalty is still there, as there has been no redrafting of the Bill.

  19. Rebecca Kadaga is a spiteful religious psychotic taking revenge for having been embarrassed by Canada.

    Christian dominionism has the whole of Uganda sewn -up, the Government, the police and the army, the hospitals, everything and what a perfect disaster it is there with holocaust conditions for gay people.

    The racist American evangelicals who carefully laid the foundations for this horror experiment to happen are loving sitting back and watching the spectacle of black Africans turning on other black Africans who are perceived to be gay, and the continued increase in AIDS related deaths throughout the heterosexual population due to ineffective abstinence programs replacing access to condoms, pastors who promise cures through prayer instead of proper medical care, gay men scared to seek medical treatment because doctors will report them to the police . All this since Uganda was officially dedicated to the service of Jesus Christ,.

    1. We need to make 1 thing clear.

      American evangelicals encouraged this genocidal law.

      They are NOT responsible for it.

      They were met by a very receptive audience.

      The backward dump of Uganda is genocidally homophobic all by itself, without encouragement from others.

      All aid and trade with Uganda must stop.

  20. Rebecca Kadaga would probably be better suited to a job as a Parking Enforcement Officer, she’d still get to wear a silly uniform and hat, which she clearly enjoys doing, and she could pull vindictive power trips all day long.

    1. I’d trust a parking enforcement officer before I’d trust the ignorant bigot Rebecca Kadaga.

      Why is she wearing a judge’s wig?

      Surely her incredible igorance and stupidity should preclude her from holding high office.

      (Silly me – it’s Uganda – a country which rewards corruption; stupidity and bigotry.)

  21. Simple. Hit ‘em where it hurts. End their financial aid.

  22. You are playing with fire, Uganda and you will get burnt and go the way of the dodo

  23. ...Paddyswurds 1 Nov 2012, 8:40pm

    Education is what will lift Africa out of it corruption and religious delusion, and when I say Education it must be totally free of the type of Evangelical bull shyte that currently passes for education in several parts of the World including, unbelievably, the United states of America, where a particularly vile type of Evangelical xtianity is slowly taking hold of Education and is producing a generation of illiterate zombies…

  24. I slightly cringe when reading racist or misogynistic comments about this article. BUT, on the other hand, haven’t these stupid savages got anything else to worry about than oppressing Gay people? AND – women’s rights being, no doubt, hard won in Uganda, why is this ignorant bitch persecuting another group?!
