Anti-gay 'vote Putin' video goes viral in Russia


Recommended Posts

Don't we have a member around here that claims that society in Russia is in some ways more liberal than here in the United States? <_<

MOSCOW (AFP) - 

A homophobic video urging Russians to re-elect President Vladimir Putin has gone viral less than a month before the country's election.

The video, which appeared on social media on Friday, tells voters that if Putin's rivals win they will take Russia into a "nightmare" future in which they are forced to co-habitate with gay men.

That video is actually hilarious. 

So, this guy has a dream that he oversleeps and doesn't make it to the polls to vote on election day. In his dream, a couple of guys come to his door and demand that he report for duty because the draft has been changed to everyone under the age 65. Then, while telling his wife what's going on, he notices a guy standing in his kitchen. He asks his wife, who is that? She responds that he's their gay neighbor whose partner had broken up with him. According to law, they have to allow him to live with them until he finds a new partner. If the guy doesn't find one by the end of the week, the man has to sleep with him because 'the law's the law!'

 

If that's homophobic to the degree of it being offensive, folks should probably lighten up a bit. It would be just as funny if instead of a gay guy, it was the neighbor's ex wife. 

 

BTW, it's not a Putin ad. It's a public service announcement meant to get out the vote in a funny way.
