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.

    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!
