Violent Russian Thugs Attack Peaceful Dancing Flashmob They Assume Is Gay

Screen Shot 2014-03-25 at 10.34.36 AMA 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.”

CCTV cameras nearby captured the horrific events, which are eerily similar to those we showed you in this powerful PSA back in February.

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.

Watch the events unfold below:

      Johnny Weir no doubt then stated that the dancers were idiots, and got what they deserved for doing anything in public and defended Russia and Putin’s attitudes.

      Where are the Jamaican officials who should have bee…oops, I mean Russian officials who should have been all over this seeming that it has only been a month since sochi.

      But, then again Putin is probably too busy trying to take over the world.

      Thus we see the evolution of a totalitarian society slowly edging towards fascism. Sad. Russian people don’t deserve this, anymore than others in the world.

      Scott Lively must be really happy with himself over this. So what if all those good Christian fellows mistook students for those evil homosexuals, just collateral damage.

      This is what happens when a country that has never had a Renaissance or an Age of Enlightenment remains trapped in the Medieval Ages. Fuck stupid ignorant Russia. But also try to remember it that not ALL Russians lock step with VLAD (the Impaler) Putin. 50,000 people marched in Moscow in protest of the invasion of the Ukraine.

      No one is safe, not even the str8 people. This is what bigotry does. Some people never learn.

      Straight people are beginning to get caught in the crossfire? That’s when you know it’s gone too far, I still can’t believe some American politicians think this sort of law is a good thing? They’re so paranoid they misidentified a harmless flash mob, idiots.
