  RAIDERS OF THE LOST APT

WATCH: Police Raid Home Of Russian Gay Activist Nikolai Alexeyev

Russian police raided the home of the country’s most prominent — and, increasingly, its most controversial — LGBT rights activist, Nikolai Alexeyev, following a complaint by an anti-gay member of Parliament.

The government passed a law banning so-called “gay propaganda” in June, which has many worried about the safety of LGBT athletes and spectators to the Winter Olympics in Sochi this coming February.

The Games have also shone an international spotlight on the plight of gays in Russia, who are now subject to government-sanctioned discrimination, as well as violence and even murder.

The raid took place days before Alexeyev went on an online tirade against porn magnate Michael Lucas for openly questioning Alexeyev’s loyalty to the fight for civil rights in Russia. Alexeyev had previously dismissed the West and allegations of gay persecution.

      The attention that the West is bringing to the plight of gay Russians must be working because the Kremlin has been working over time in spreading their propaganda, including high-jacking Nikolai’s social media and using it to spread anti-western lies.
      They blame the troubles of Russian LGBT on the West, when actual Russian LGBT have begged us for help against their terrorist government.
      They send paid trolls to sites, especially gay sites like this one, to spread the message that all our actions are doing nothing and that the best action is inaction (which doesn’t make any sense at all)
      This tells me that our methods are working and that we need to concentrate them even more.

      Artists from all over the world need to flood them with man on man images, featuring the very latent, overly hyper-masculine Putin. Yes, Putin in panties, Putin in poses, Putin in prison, surrounded by “friends” waiting in line. Someone mentions Putin being poked by Uncle Sam….ok, kind of disturbing, but…ok.. The dude needs to be made fun of by the entire world and it should not let up until he stops the anti-gay stuff. He secretly may get off on it. All of Russia needs to see their leader in various states of undress. What an ass! That’s what they’ll say when they see the artwork. What an ass!
