South African Student Expelled After Reporting Racist, Homophobic Attack By Russian Skinheads

russia-neo-nazis-studentA new video [warning: graphic content] making its way around the internets shows Russian neo-Nazis apparently up to their old tricks — you know, the tricks that involve luring unsuspecting young gay men for the purpose of torturing and humiliating them — also known as the Occupy Pedophilia movement. This time their victim is a 20-year-old South African student identified as David Smith.

According to BuzzFeed, the skinheads claimed they posed as a 15-year-old boy to lure Smith to the city of Belgorod, near Russia’s border with Ukraine. In the 33-minute video, posted to the Russian social media site VK by the group Occupy Belgorod, the thugs are seen taunting Smith, asking him if he wants to have sex with a cat, shaving his head, smashing a watermelon in his face and forcing him to perform fellatio on a beer bottle.

Smith later filed a complaint with the police, but Occupy Belgorod claim their victim was expelled from Shukhov State Technological University as a result. Independent Online is reporting that a South African lawyer is now calling for an investigation into the incident.

Pretoria lawyer Coenraad Kukkuk blames the Russian government’s anti-gay propaganda law, which bans the promotion of “non-traditional sexual relationships” among minors, for the attack — saying it “gives a license to all these criminal gangs and thugs to have carte blanche to do what they want.”

Kukkuk also dismisses the pedophilia angle, claiming it as a “thinly veiled smokescreen for homophobic attacks.” In addition to a travel warning for all South Africans, Kukkuk is also calling for a South African boycott of the Olympics.

      My, the world has changed. An Afrikaner condemning another country for its bigoted treatment of a black man! Who says that change isn’t possible? I guess there is hope, even for Russia.

      @jwtraveler: Wow, the world has changed, look at those uppity Greeks inventing democracy when they could be part of the glorious Persian empire.

      If you were thinking of enrolling in a Russian university, THINK AGAIN.

      That video is horrible, and the response of the Russian university is horrendous. Reform yourself, Russia, and end the homop•hobic BS!

      Words cannot express how disgusted and frustrated that video makes me feel. I can’t even imagine how worse it is for the victim :’(
