Skip to comments.Tokyo Olympics sparks anti-LGBT slurs on Russian TV (BBC)
Posted on 08/04/2021 2:37:17 PM PDT by Salman
The participation of openly gay, lesbian and transgender athletes in the Tokyo Olympics has led to an upsurge in anti-LGBT commentary on Russian state TV.
Extremely offensive language, some of which appears in this article, was used by the hosts and guests on talk shows aired by the country's two most popular television channels.
Even though the Kremlin has tended to not publicly support anti-LGBT sentiment, it fits in with the state ideology of defending Russia's "traditional values" against the West.
One of the panellists, Alexei Zhuravlyov, who is a member of the Russian parliament, said he was "disgusted" by gay and transgender people.
"We stand opposed to all this smut and perversion, strongly opposed," he told the show, pointing at the studio screen which showed Hubbard.
"We stand against this abomination," he shouted. At one point, Zhuravlyov used an offensive Russian word to describe gay men.
"I do not think transgender people have any prospects in Russia, because they love men, while Russian men love women," said Spiridon Kilinkarov, a former member of the Ukrainian parliament.

Man...I hate it when the Ruskies are on the right side of this issue and we’re not.
Five hundred channels on US cable TV, and not one that tells the truth about the perverts...
Offensive language describing offensive behavior
Right now, I’d much rather watch Russian TV than the BBC. Russian TV make a heck of a lot more sense.
Very true. If anything, they’re actively and overtly promoting it.
They dare not. Otherwise, they'll be Anita Bryant'ed.
She was an early casualty in the advancement of perversion. We should have been more proactive in defending her. We might could have stopped or delayed this mess.
These SOBs would sell their mothers and stream Will and Grace 24/7 on RT if they thought it would give them a leg up on America or yield them more power. People holding "Christian Values" don't poison the head of the Ukraine. I don't buy this values claptrap at all. Liars gonna lie.
I guess all you have to do is dangle some anti-gay et al rhetoric in front of some "conservatives" and they surrender their mind and love of country. I thought their sellout point would be higher.
Russians seem to be resisting globalist filth and disorder. Very powerful forces in this world wish to bring them to heal or destroy them using Western sons, blood and treasure. The enemy of my enemy... Flame away but realize whom you’re serving.
It’s happening much more often these days.
Yay perversion and insanity!
The Russians have flipped on the issue since their communist days.
I guess that is a good sign for us that this insanity will eventually pass !
Here is one example that is ongoing and hardly ever criticized.
Perhaps the spirit of Western, Christian civilization will be preserved a little further East than we imagined. Where else is the bulwark? Maybe Hungary, but they have no might.
It’s Russia. They don’t have to pander to deviance.
The Gaystapo had made deep inroads in the culture by this time, and they lies were more and more being believed and broadcast by a complicit media. The APA had already fallen to the perverts a few years earlier (1973) and that emboldened them and gave them the creds to go after anyone who didn't abide by the "science." Turns out Anita was completely right.
What a long virtue signaling trip it’s been, eh DB?
