    are we allowed to callhim a savage now?

    1. you will get the conditioned, phoney pc, loony left brigade on here with their usual contradiction , probably calling you a racist in the hope that everyone is as easily programmed in thought control as themselves . But that lot are hypocrites who apply double standards and privileges for some. He’s a savage as the majority of people in his country, who support LGBT persecution.

      1. St Sebastian, the humanitarian 26 Jul 2013, 2:16pm

        ‘He’s a savage as the majority of people in his country, who support LGBT persecution.”

        Absolutely, because of their behaviour and attitudes.

        ‘the conditioned, phoney pc, loony left brigade on here with their usual contradiction’

        Pffft – cheap shot, too lazy to make a rational and well reasoned case for or against any proposition. Loaded use of cliches and generalisations and little evidence to support your contention..

        1. And you fail to provide any rational proposition or evidence to support your response. Do you consider yourself to be a conditioned, phoney pc, loony leftist? as it would seem so that you have taken offence to my comment.

          1. St Sebastian, the humanitarian 27 Jul 2013, 1:23am

            Firstly, I agreed with your contention that Mugabe is a savage – the proof was provided in the article.

            Secondly, the terms ‘conditioned, phoney pc, loony leftist’ are in themselves subjective and inflammatory. They are not helpful & contribute nothing to the debate, seeking only to insult those that have a different point of view from yours. The credibility of any contention is based on reasoning rather than applying inflammatory ‘labels’. It doesn’t matter whether an idea is considered leftist, centrist or rightist as there are good and bad ideas from any of these political positions. A scientist considers an argument based on the facts, the context & takes a position based on the ‘balance of probabilities’, as there are very few absolutes in life i.e. exclusively right or wrong.

            Thirdly, I don’t take offence to your comment about being a conditioned, phoney pc, loony leftist. I take it as a reflection of you and your inability to make a rational argument.

      2. You don’t know us very well do you Rapture? There is no colour to the skin of evil!

        1. “don’t know us very well”? I don’t know who this “us” is you’re referring to ? Do you consider yourself a loony left ? What are you on about?

          1. David Myers 27 Jul 2013, 10:52am

            The question is what are YOU on about? Sounds like a racist condemnation of all Africans not based on their attitude pro or con about GLBTQ rights but based on the color of their skin. “We” aren’t with you on that. Yes, we will fight the haters, whatever the color of their skin, and that includes racists trolls like you, who are trying to hijack a legitimate political conversation for your own racist agenda.

          2. @david myers, Your alleged, hyper sensitivities regarding race , which are unfounded in this case and based on your meaningless offence at my question “what are you on about?” is a pathetic attempt at censorship and thought control, whereby the accusation purported by a loon like yourself did not even exist. You are nit picking and desperately searching for a deliberate misinterpretation on your behalf to be offended and you are only fooling the very gullible and easily manipulated .
            And your response to my earlier credible comment is enough proof needed as your response was as predictable as I detailed from extreme lefties.

          3. @David myers, just be honest with yourself for a change, you are really seething about my earlier comment regarding loony left, as it bruised your ego/agenda rather than anything to do with race(which was not applicable in your reply) and appear to be inappropriately bandying the race card about as your weapon of attempting to censor those who disagree with you. Sorry for you, your insincere/incorrect use of the term racist , don’t wash with men.

    2. St Sebastian, the humanitarian 26 Jul 2013, 2:08pm

      Yes, you can call him a savage because it describes a person with reference to his chosen behaviour (or the promotion of that behaviour). If you insulted him by referring to something over which he has no control, i.e. his race, his natural looks etc.

      Because we are subjected to abuse for an aspect of our lives over which we have no choice, i.e. our sexuality, we have to be careful we don’t do to others what we don’t want to be done to ourselves.

      I for one want to maintain the high ground and not be hypocritical.

      1. “I for one want to maintain the high ground” I’ve noted your lack of response to the many comments calling on this savages murder. Your name would appear somewhat of a misnomer. My earlier comment in which you were more offended by ,than the inhumane act of someone’s murder must bear truth on your character.

  2. We should chop off this motherfűcker’s head. And feed it to starved alligators.

    1. I don’t know about the average alligator, but I’d have to be pretty damned hungry to even look at that man as food.

      1. David Myers 27 Jul 2013, 10:54am

        And I don’t usually associate the word “starved” with the word alligators. They’re doing alright, I’m sure.

  3. you really are a piece of s*** I can only hope you suffer a very painful slow death.

    You are a disgrace to the human race.

    1. No…he’s not of the human race. He’s a primate, Gorilla to be exact! This corrupt animal keeps the entire Zimbabwean human population (except his cronies) in abject poverty! No offense to Gorillas, they are beautiful creatures, except this beast!

      1. St Sebastian, the humanitarian 26 Jul 2013, 2:25pm

        ‘This corrupt XXXXXXX keeps the entire Zimbabwean human population (except his cronies) in abject poverty!’ – fair comment.

        The rest of your commentary is not objective and outright racist. Sadly it degrades your own fair comment.

        1. How is it racist? we all originated from apes and we are all animals. You seem to harbour subjective latent isms making association between those of a certain ethnicity with certain animals, as you assume others would have your sublime associations of race from a colonial era.

          1. St Sebastian, the humanitarian 27 Jul 2013, 6:56am

            Rapture, if you cannot acknowledge likening a human being to a primate is not an insult then I am wasting my time to engage with you at any level. However I suspect you are being disingenuous or trolling, and again I won’t waste my time engaging with you.

            You might recall that I agree with you that Mugabe is a savage because he has a well documented history of savagery. The only difference is that you pre-emptively defended your assertion, not by providing evidence, but by insulting anyone who dares to disagree with you with ad hominem and insulting attacks i.e. calling them ‘loonie lefties’. Attack the argument, not the person. You will have a much better chance of winning the argument.

          2. @st seb, if you find the comparison of a human being to a primate as insulting, you must be anti Darwinism. Your theory of offence being taken plays right into creationists hands . As already can be seen by some faith school teaching in the uk, Darwinism origin of the species is not taught in certain schools , one excuse put forward for this as it may be deemed racist. You need to be consistent with your reasoning for offence.
            And yes I do think the far left are loons.

        2. It was not at all a racist remark and that was not the intent to be racist! I’ve called the moronic George W Bush a chimpanzee, because there are photos (on the internet) where he looks like one!

          1. David Myers 27 Jul 2013, 11:06am

            Common vee and rapture. You’re not fooling any of us with your disingenuous attempts to disclaim your racist tendencies. Comparing black people to apes, chimpanzees, “monkeys” etc, is a time worn “code” method of making racist statements without copping to the racism. Just like the tea partiers who persist in comparing the US President to a variety of apes. We’re on to you. Disclaim all you want, but you’re not fooling us. The “us” refers to GLBTQ rights activists, who are not also racists, unlike yourselves.

          2. @David myers, from your irrational ranting, you are obviously quite a self righteous , pompous individual to imply that you assume others thought process .Not everyone has your covert “code” word tactics. And I am an LGBT activist and you don’t speak for me and many others with your insidious, coercive techniques and manipulative tactics of calling others racist to bulldoze your view on us. Maybe you should change your name to Adolf?
            Do you find Darwin’s origin of the species racist? Should it be banned from the public education curriculum?

      2. Implying that he is not human is as idiotic as saying Hitler was inhuman as well. Admitting that these kind of people exist and that we share the same DNA components is as important as realizing how slim is the frontier between reason and hate. He is human and he is an abject excuse for a life.

      3. That is absolutely unfair! Gorillas are gentle harmless creatures and should not be demeaned by being likened to this murderous buffoon. If it wasn’t for the fact that he is deadly serious, he would be laughable.

      4. Small reminder Vee we ARE primates!!! And don’t insult gorilla’s. This creature is a non animal. There is NOTHING on this planet that is like him AT all!

        1. I agree. Thanks for the reminder! :)

    2. Bill Cameron 26 Jul 2013, 5:56pm

      Well, I agree up to a point ;)

      I don’t much care if his death is painful (but in fact I would rather it is peaceful as I am not a savage like him), but I do NOT want it to be slow, I want him to die very quickly, preferably today or tomorrow at the latest. I don’t think many people will mourn his passing. After he has died I doubt if I will ever think of him again.

  4. Bearing in mind that he has somehow managed to turn a potentially prosperous country into one of the worlds basket cases you would expect a shamefaced silence from this latter day Idi Amin.

  5. This worthless piece of scum doesn’t even deserve to have his head chopped – that would be way too merciful.

  6. Robert in S. Kensington 26 Jul 2013, 11:58am

    Demented freak, evil incarnate. This is all emanating from religious indoctrination and yet not one word of condemnation from the Anglican cult in Zimbabwe let alone Canterbury, one of the key players in promoting homophobia during the colonial era.

  7. lock him and Putin in a house for 5 years.

    1. GingerlyColors 26 Jul 2013, 1:18pm

      Yes, with Vladmir Putin!

      1. David Myers 27 Jul 2013, 11:08am

        A match made in hell, and I’m really glad they can’t reproduce!

  8. Oh for goodness sake, Zimbabwe was the bread basket of Africa and its now starving. One of the world’s most spectacular and tragic failures of leadership. Not that hopeful about the long term future of the neighbouring S.Africa either. Zimbabwe has a corrupt leader sitting in a corrupt continent leading his people into oblivion. If there is a hell, there is surely a well deserved place there for him

    1. Scumbag Mugabe as stolen all the money with his wife -how they walk around when so many are staving is sick.

      Please Lord take this piece of scum asap

      1. David Myers 27 Jul 2013, 11:09am

        I think you’re praying to the wrong department. No way will heaven take him.

  9. Self-loathing gone mad! This man is CLEARLY gay and in denial. His words are really addressed to himself for having same-sex attraction. Recent research has demonstrated beyond doubt that the more homophobic you are, the more likely it is that you are gay and in denial. People who are comfortable with their own sexuality are NEVER homophobic. http://bodymindsoul.org/2012/04/what-causes-homophobia/

    1. Thanks for the link – a great resource with lots of useful references…

      1. My pleasure. We need to get this message out there! Perhaps homophobes would be less inclined to abuse us if they knew everyone knows WHY they do it.

  10. Jock S. Trap 26 Jul 2013, 12:28pm

    Strange how he says we’re worse than “pigs, goats and birds” yet he’s the one calling for the brutal murder of innocent people just because they’re Gay.

    Of course this is the typical religious hate speech to satisfy their egos.

    Absolutely disgusted, esp as it’s people like him who seem to obsess with what people do in bed rather than see the human being.

    1. We know exactly why these people are obsessed with what gay men do in bed and why they don’t give much thought to what two women do in bed. It’s pathetic.

      He should start with his own head.

  11. Isn’t he dead yet?

    1. David Myers 27 Jul 2013, 11:12am

      We’re waiting, but not very patiently.

  12. What is so bad about birds?

    1. Or goats or pigs for that matter. Now what I don’t like is boisterous uneducated loud mouthed assholes like Mugabe. Lets hope in the future his name will be forever tied to nastiness.

  13. No surprise that he’s besties with the all the pope guys, how many are there now?

  14. i CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS BASTARD TO DIE A VERY SLOW AND PAINFUL DEATH. HORRIBLE CREATURE.

  15. So if you lock straight men in a house for 5 years, they will produce children will they?

    This vile creature is so thick he probably listens to a tape all day saying, breath in, breath out.

  16. I do believe that now is the time for Obama to take any and all measures to guarantee that Zimbabwe stop using the US dollar in the place of the native Zimbabwean currency.
    By Zimbabwe tying it’s economic catastrophe to the US dollar in such a way can be nothing other than a detriment to the value of the US dollar, and by extension, a detriment to the US economy as a whole.
    Continued receipt of aid, and use of the US dollar should be refused until they decriminalize homosexuality.

  17. Terry Smith 26 Jul 2013, 1:00pm

    May death come quickly to the abom
    Iination that is this old goat Mugabe

    1. Terry Smith 26 Jul 2013, 1:03pm

      Abomination sorry.

  18. Ethel Clutterbuck 26 Jul 2013, 1:03pm

    Buga Me!

  19. GingerlyColors 26 Jul 2013, 1:25pm

    The sad thing is once the world is rid of that vile creature, Mugabe, there are plenty more waiting to step into his shoes. You only have to look at what is happening in other African countries such as Uganda. And what direction will South Africa take when Nelson Mandela dies? It is a crying shame that no other African leader has the stature of Nelson Mandela, a man who we wish was immortal.

  20. There is something terribly broken in this man’s humanity. My heart cries for his victims. :(

  21. He isn’t with it. Really. A hate campaign against birds, pigs and goats as well now? What did birds, pigs and goats ever do to him?

  22. Haha … so then Buga Me will be joining gays in hell once God has judged him. He had better change his bigoted tune quickly before someone bumps him off or Satan claims him.

  23. sarah marsham 26 Jul 2013, 2:30pm

    Putin and Mugabe. Why is the British Government sending Zimbabwe foreign aid? The foreign aid budget is the only budget to be slashed. If you were a public figure in this country who uttered this vile Homophobic diatribe it rightfully would be prosecuted under Hate crime leglislation . So why Prime Minister why? why are you sending money to this vile despot with one of the worst human rights records in the world? If you are so supportive of Gay Marriage in Britain then rightfully you should support people in Zimbabwe especially if they are running for their lives.

    1. David Myers 27 Jul 2013, 11:15am

      Well said.

  24. To think your hard earned cash is used to fund his murderous lifestyle….he would gladly chop your head off but not before he gets his hands on your cash.

    1. He’s really is just a little scared boy with a lot of power isn’t he?

  25. Mark Ansell 26 Jul 2013, 2:36pm

    Mugabe needs to be assassinated along with his cronies….it’s time to take him out

  26. In what way are pigs, goats, and birds bad?

  27. Tim Hanafin 26 Jul 2013, 2:42pm

    He is an utterly despicable creature who has corruptly hung on to power. Just as Putin has found being anti gay plays very well in these countries.
    I just want to know why he is still alive – just shut up and DIE

  28. Alan Graham Sloan 26 Jul 2013, 2:43pm

    we really should pay little attention to this nutcase he’s proved himself time and time again to be a bigoted Ass and brain dead twat!

    I just feel sorry for the poor LGBT people in his country who suffer because of HIM! and his kind there.

    Can we all just agree that most Pigs are more aesthetically pleasing then Robert Rhino ASS Face MUG-abe will ever dream of being!

  29. Peter Gregory 26 Jul 2013, 2:46pm

    I guess we never cease to be surprised by the number of insane lunatics ruling over dictatorships in Africa & the Middle East; sadly, Cameron’s answer is to give them 12% more money , cut bAck on welfAre here & as the select committee just said, no-one checks up on where the Overseas Aid actually goes; if we’re lucky, they spend it on mansions, gambling, prostitutes & drugs in UK. If not, they spend it on British arms to repress their people. Corruption & insane killer torturer dictators stink, Mr. Cameron.

  30. Mugabe’s remarks are disgraceful even if unsurprising given previous form. Sad the Zimbabwean people have to suffer with him in power. Disappointingly, the Pope greeted rather than censured him.

  31. Officer Dribble 26 Jul 2013, 2:58pm

    Let’s hope that the Bishop Desmond Tutu story receives the same number of responses.

    Am I right…did someone actually call Mugabe a gorilla?

    Strewth…let’s raise the bar people.

  32. John in Toronto Canada 26 Jul 2013, 3:12pm

    Again with the argument that “if you’re not reproducing, you have no purpose”. That’s why you hate us? Seriously? In a country where people are dying of starvation, you think that people who don’t reproduce should be put to death? Feed your hungry and worry about the “living” population. Your numbers aren’t threatened by non-heterosexuals, they’re threatened by ignorance and a lack of education.

  33. Where is the world on this? Why is this not as bad as South African apartied? Where is the outrage from the USA, from Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?
    Corruption and the color of money drives this all.

  34. Politicians use The Gay’s as a scapegoat to distract their people from the real issues, and to give them someone to project their hate at to hide their own corruption and psychopathy.

  35. Gay men like to f*** men and straight men like to f*** women, but Robert Mugabe likes to f*** a whole country.

  36. Scott Rose 26 Jul 2013, 3:42pm

    Notice that Mugabe has a long history of extremist anti-gay incitement and that Pope Francis, may he be cursed to hell, greeted him during his inauguration as Pope.

    1. I wouldn’t be suprised if their was a little copulation, maybe a little bit of fornication after the inauguration, am i rite?

      Mr. Pink

  37. Running ramped, this mentality has the power to pit anyone against anybody irrelevant of the sexuality of the individuals in question. Truly this is a perfect tool of revenge or “correction” of any situation. Truly this is an ultimate control over the people and this power hungry jackass knows it.

    1. David Myers 27 Jul 2013, 11:20am

      Mugabe is obviously a Hitler wannabe.

  38. His words speak of crimes against humanity and is that the reason why we took Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein out of power? This is the very same situation but for a different reason. He should be condemed and brought out of power along with Putin. For their beliefs, actions and words they wouldn’t become marters.

  39. George Broadhead 26 Jul 2013, 4:48pm

    There seems to be no end to the vitriolic homophobic pronouncements coming from this Jesuit educated Roman Catholic who was welcomed at the Vatican by the previous pope

    this Jesuit educated Roman Catholic

  40. Would it be ok if we went over, carrying rainbow flags and such like, and chop of that ba*@%*rds head off please?

    What an evil evil man he is? And yet we do nothing at all!!!

    The only thing that will sort him out is euthanasia via a bullet to the head!!!

  41. Drake Onian 26 Jul 2013, 5:06pm

    Suck my fart you hateful smegma filmed walking turd.

  42. Your country was once a “breadbasket” and now it’s a “garbage-can”. Don’t attack the United States of America. Our way of thinking has evolved far surpassing your intellect and ability to comprehend human morality. You neither deserve the People’s tax dollar nor have you earned the same. I’m guessing that your are being persuaded by a belief in some God. God and politics have never mixed well. As a matter of fact; it has brought nations to their ends….

  43. You just have to look at and listen to this man to realise that Evolution simply passed him by.

  44. Tom Cotner 26 Jul 2013, 7:41pm

    I would say that we should begin with him. He, and he alone is enough to cause the return of racism in this country, as well as others.

    1. Yeah, the actions of one man should be used to demonize an entire race/minority of people around the world, that’s always a good way to go………………………………………….

    Mr Mugabe needs to look in the mirror occasionally to see what the face of a true bigot is and maybe suggest that bigot’s heads should be chopped off too, starting with his own.

  46. Bout time we stood up to this Despot! shut the embassy on the the Strand , send them home stop giving aid or send the troops in like we seem to do in other places. This man is evil through and through he has no business running a country yet we stand by after all these years. Hes an idiot and this country is ridiculous for letting him get away with it .

    1. This so called president won’t allow gay couples to live freely but he will allow straight men to rape women. It doesn’t stop there doesn’t it Mr. President? YOU allowed children to be raped. Seems if they birth a girl baby it’s just a place for a so called straight man to rape her. Piss on that president. Piss on his ideas and ffs DROP DEAD already! 88 years old?? Bend over we have something for ya!

  47. Janet Lameck 27 Jul 2013, 5:26am

    Better yet we should chop OFF Robert Mugabe’s head! Time to STOP ALL foreign aid to his country and ban all exports from them as well.

  48. Janet Lameckj 27 Jul 2013, 5:34am

    Sounds like hes a Member of the Westboro Baptist Church!

  49. scott hepper 27 Jul 2013, 7:09pm

    Can I go Paula Dean on the MF now…?

  50. The only positive thing here is when they say he is 88 years old. For everyones sake, death will find him soon.

  51. ….this poor example of a man is quite tragic. Is he really jealous of men being able to have sex with other men. He obviously needs to grow up and stop acting like an evil twat!! But there again he’s passed it so should he be assassinated. I wish, and a few others think the same?

  52. How is the really sad excuse for a human being still alive…it’s about time he was removed from this world!

  53. Mr Mugabe . i am sad to say that you are so out of touch with this world that you live in.it brakes my hart to hear that you would even kill your own kids if they were gay.i hope you do get a massage from your god and he dames you for all you are worth .

  54. So we are worse than goats pigs and birds – hmm not much of an insult is it? Now if someone said we were worse than Robert Mugabe…..
