    Wow, they didn’t even wait for the Olympics to officially start before they began “rounding up” the “undesirables”.

    If this is an indication, I think the world should be prepared for what’s going to happen in two weeks when the games are over and Putin doesn’t care about the opinions of the world.

    All LGBT people in Russia should get out now. So should all journalists with any morality and ethics, and so should any immigrant to the country who could be targeted for not being “pure Russian”.

    No joke, this is what’s going to happen, it’s inevitable when a government gives permission for ultra nationalism and bigotry. Putin is supporting a new fascism and it will be out of his control, whether he wants to control it or not.
