A group of Russian thugs in the city of Irkutsk attacked a group of students performing in a St. Patrick’s Day flashmob last weekend. According to police, the men assumed the celebration was designed to spread “homosexual propaganda.”
Interfax reports the flashmob was organized by students at a local mall on Sunday. As you can see in the video below, the celebration had barely begun before a group of violent men begin beating participants, leaving several injured and one with a concussion.
“The Easy School members were wearing historic costumes, particularly kilts and their opponents mistook them for representatives of non-traditional sexual orientation,” a source told Interfax. “Yes our students and teachers were among the injured but it could have been any young people who weren’t to the taste of these grey masses,” school officials said in a statement.
