Posted on 03/27/2014 8:24:21 AM PDT by tcrlaf
After enduring months of homophobic attacks, including gunfire and toxic gas, Russia's largest gay nightclub, Central Station, has finally closed its doors for good.
The club management surrendered to a spate of harassment in late February, after a group of men allegedly blocked the front gates, preventing patrons from entering the building safely, according to staff members who were on the scene. The well-known club was widely considered a haven and a symbol of freedom for the country's besieged LGBT community.
"All was [taken] by our enemies," lamented former club dancer Alexander Moskalets. "It's all gone."
"They really stopped the normal work of our club," said a manager, who asked that his name not be used out of safety concerns.
"Of course, I'm sad," he added, "but I was ready for this situation."
Prior to the shutdown, "Nightline" aired a special report on the Moscow nightclub after a months-long investigation into the business's effort to survive. "Nightline" traveled to Russia amid evidence of escalating violence against the LGBT community there following the passage the Kremlin's controversial "anti-gay propaganda" law.

You'll note what the US Media considers important news. Little wonder the rest of the world is looking at us like we are nutz, is it?
Glenn Beck to throw a hissy fit in 3... 2... 1...
Do they have bath houses over there? If so, they are probably next.
Russia is the enemy of the US now.
But Russia makes Obama look weak
But Russia is anti-gay
But Russia is anti-US
“All was [taken] by our enemies,” lamented former club dancer Alexander Moskalets. “It’s all gone.”
What’s all gone? The 55-gal drums of KY-Jelly? Oh, the horrors!
ABC news will shriek about this, but stories about the daily bombs in Iraq and the American casualty rate in Afghanistan are completely buried.
Homosexuals don’t like bisexuals.
They have a "gay dancer," so that's a sign that they're essentially a bath house.
Most, if not all, of these sodomite hangouts allow open, anonymous sex to occur on premises. So, what's the difference?
“ABC news will shriek about this, but stories about the daily bombs in Iraq and the American casualty rate in Afghanistan are completely buried.”
ABCCBSCNNNBC/AP got the memo to publish this story to bury Ukraine/Crimea stories.
Anal syphilis infection rates may drop in Moscow now.
Oh, dear...Oh, dear...Oh, dear...!
I wonder if ABC “news” has any concern about the number of Christ followers who are being murdered in Africa and Asia because of their faith....or, if they are too lazy to do that, talk to some Christian leaders here in the USA who are losing their LIBERTY because of Team Obama.
Guess that wouldn’t fit ABC’s world view.
Way back in the 1980’s the classified project I worked on got a security briefing by the FBI giving a general picture of the security situation at the time. They presented convincing evidence that (among other things) the KGB was bankrolling the then nascent LGBT movement. If a group got their name in the paper for something they’d get an anonymous donation ranging from the hundreds to the thousands of dollars. The larger the group the more money they got. The objective was to destroy the family unit. It was an attack on the pillars of American society. I’m certain Putin would be aware of the corrosive effect as that’s what was intended. It’s almost humorous that Russia is now under attack by the very monster they created.
Russians love their bath houses. Big party of their culture. It’s called banya over there. No doubt plenty of faggotry happens in them.
Now the libs will call us to arms.
Russia Invading an occupying a sovereign state doesnt bother them the least, but shutting down gay nightclubs?
This is War!
“But Russia makes Obama look weak”
Barry doesn’t need Russia’s help for that.
Looks like Obama won’t be visiting anytime soon.
Lindsey Graham is deeply saddened.
ABC News has blocked me from commenting. I’ll take that as a badge of honor....
I wonder if anyone at ABC might care what happens to Mrs. Maria Corina Machado, mother of 3, catholic.
The American Left gleefully referred to President Bush as BusHitler. How will they configure Putin? HitlerPootie?
While I, a heterosexual, do not believe they exist. If a man has sex with another man, even if it's on a part time basis, he's queer.
Same for woman on woman.
American freedom of speech.
ZirconEncrustedTweezers ~ Barry doesnt need Russias help for that.
What do you mean by that???
Really? I thought the hallmark of Communism was destroying a nation, its people, its culture, its history, its economy, and the very idea of decency and normalcy. This, of course, what we have going on in this country. But is this what is happening in Russia?
Putin is a strong man ruler, there is no doubt, but a Communist?
If the US was a godly nation, we’d re-criminalize homosexuality, if for no other reason than we desired God’s blessings again. But we’ve become too depraved and too demonic to want God’s blessings anymore. Our sin is far, far too important.
That they insist on using this psychological term which, last i heard, even the AP discourages, attests to their commitment to furthering the homosexual; agenda (which of course, they will deny exist), being driven by Christophobia.
Maybe they were drafted.
“If a man has sex with another man, even if it’s on a part time basis, he’s queer.”
What my father always told me, he said “son, you might pull the lever on a train’s horn, but that damn sure don’t make you a conductor, however, if you suck just one d!ck you are a d!ck sucker for life.”
I object to their use of the tern “homophobic.” This term is intentionally meant to be hurtful. My fweelings are hurt. They should use the term “morally correct” or something like that.
Yep, the #1 issue in the entire world is homosexuality. Our entire foreign policy seems focused on it. Forget about everything else. Does your country allow “gay marriage” and treat anal sodomy like it’s normal and natural? No? Well, America won’t stand for that!
That said, I adamantly oppose violence against homosexuals. I think they’re mentally ill perverts, but I respect their right to do their detestable deeds as consenting adults in private. What they do not have a right to do is tell me and mine we have to give our approval to those deeds. They also cross the line when they try to propagandize my children or demand that government give its stamp of approval to their perversity.
There are Christians being murdered all over the world, but like you wrote, our media and government are focused like a laser beam on homosexuality. It’s sick—truly pathetic.
I’m sorry, but I’m no longer proud of America. I love her and will work to restore her, but I despise what she’s become. It seems like our government is on the wrong side of virtually every issue these days.
“One wants to build a nation, the other wants to destroy a nation.”
I think that sums it up. America is on the decline. We’ve even embraced it, because the left thinks America must be fundamentally transformed in order to create their new utopia. You can’t create a one world government with nation states like America standing in the way.
Well, it is good that it is shut down. I think I would have preferred that the government shut it down. The way it was shut down makes it seem like those that are responsible broke laws, when it would have been better if the government assumed proper authority and responsibility for shutting it down.
“...being driven by Christophobia.”
Being driven by normalphobia! One doesn’t have to be a Christian to understand it’s not normal for a man to bugger another man. Not only that, but anal sodomy is a public health threat. Meaning? Government has a legitimate interest and should discourage homosexuality, because it spreads disease.
‘Has’ or ‘Was’?
Funny thing about that is, once the left have full control of this country, the LGBT community will be the first ones purged from the government.
Happens in every leftist society.
“You cant create a one world government with nation states like America standing in the way.”
Or Russia, for that matter. Even China. They are not getting into the jacuzzi with the transnationals.
Indeed. One of the Soros-Obamacons on FR was complaining about the oppression of homosexuals in the Russian Federation. Homosexuality was a serious FELONY in the Soviet Union. They are more tolerated than in the past, but generally still not approved of.
More like an oligarch. A "czar", if you like.
Communist ideology is just a marketing program aspiring oligarchs use to obtain total control of a society.
Been going to Russian bathhouses for decades and have never seen anything gay.
Except for dressing rooms, they are co-ed. Drinks are also served and/or BYOB. A great place to pickup fit Russian women.
It's basically like a beach for cold climates.
Well, hell, this makes all of Putler’s actions justified, doesn’t it?
