Homophobic Russian extremist sets up group to ‘save the world from gays’

Joe Williams September 30, 2015

The man who designed Russia’s controversial “gay propaganda” law is preparing to take on the rest of the world.

Rather than fight terrorism, relieve poverty or tackle global warming, Vitaly Milonov says he wants to rid the world from a more “immediate threat”.

The man who compared gay sex to sex with a dog has announced his plans to establish an international anti-LGBT organisation to “save the international community from gays”.

Ironically, the group will be called the ‘Volunteers For Freedom’.

In announcing his plans, Milonov – who recently tried to ban Wikipedia and Facebook – modestly claimed to be the “defender against injustice” and “leader of family values” in Russia.

“A number of my colleagues have already given a positive response, including those from Cyprus and Lebanon,” Milonov said.

However, despite this “positive response”, Milonov’s counterparts have opted to remain anonymous – we wonder why?

“I will not disclose the names. The organisation will be led by 10 to 12 people, real figures in European politics.

“The people who believe in real human rights in Europe are being humiliated, downtrodden and unheard.

“But in Russia, we see hope. We must give people hope,” he added.

“We have long lived with the guilt that people ‘deserve gay parades’ as if it were a violation of freedom.

“But it is not, Europe needs to help real people who are doing good things in the name of the family.”

While many argue that the move is in fact against the “human rights” he mentions, his supporters claim he is the perfect man for the job.

And who can blame them?

After all, Mr Milonov has a long history of denying “hope” and “violating the freedom” of millions of LGBT people in Russia – leading to many of them being “humiliated, downtrodden and unheard” since his law was introduced in 2013.

The lawmaker has previously called for Russia to withdraw from Eurovision, branding it the “Eurovision sodom show”.

In October, he also demanded Apple CEO Tim Cook should be banned from Russia after he spoke publicly about being gay for the first time.

His comments come after Russian President Vladimir Putin recently claimed Russia ensures equal rights to all LGBT people.

However, the leader was forced to defend his country’s controversial gay “propaganda” law – which bans the “promotion” of “non-traditional sexual relationships” to minors.

He argued that, rather than suppress individuality and freedom, the law protects minors in Russia, allowing them to “realise who they are for themselves.”

“I believe we should leave kids in peace. We should give them a chance to grow, help them to realise who they are and decide for themselves.”

“Do they consider themselves a man or a woman? A female? A male? Do they want to live in a normal, natural marriage or a non-traditional one?

“That’s the only thing I wanted to talk about.”
