Riding the “Chechen Gays” scandal on a Unicorn

Featured image of a Novaya Gazeta reporter Elena Milashina, an author of the article “Honor Killing” receiving an International Women of Courage Award in Washington on March 8, 2013. Depicted here standing between the First Lady Michelle Obama and the Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry. Years ago, President Putin was asked what he thought about gay parades. He said that he respected human freedom in all its forms. However,

John Kirby latest temper tantrum at RT’s Gayane Chichakyan

Reminder: John Kirby is a “spokesperson” (yup, that is the correct newspeak) for the US State Department, presumably the branch of the Executive in charge of *diplomacy*.  Well, all I can say is that considering the level of US “diplomats” today, I sure hope that Donald Trump will (finally!) appoint some *real*, professional, career diplomats and not yet another bunch of rude, condescending, ignorant and, frankly, stupid amateurs like Kirby.

Anti “gay parade” poster seen in Moscow

As many of you have probably heard from the outraged Western corporate media, the Russian Duma has passed a law banning the public propaganda of homosexuality (homosexual practices, however, remain legal).  Supporters of this law demonstrated in front of the Duma building carrying the following poster.  The text in the middle of the posters ask the following question from the Russian deputies: In which parade will your son participate?  I

Your tax dollars hard at work: the ‘gay bomb’

No, this is not a joke and its not April 1st. Read this piece from the BBC or this entry to the Wikipedia: the Pentagon was really funding research into creating a “gay bomb”, which would make enemy soldiers “sexually irresistible” to each other. The BBC reports that: The plan for a so-called “love bomb” envisaged an aphrodisiac chemical that would provoke widespread homosexual behaviour among troops, causing what the

The other side of darkness: Towards an understanding of the roots of the Western right-wing politics

By Ken Leslie for The Saker Blog 1. A bit more on the protests Again, I’d like to thank the Saker for publishing my essay. I also want to thank the commenters—criticisms inspire me and encouragement inspires me even more! I think we both agree that the public needs to be better informed about the roots and antecedents of the current US protests which have spread to most of the

Why do Westerners assume all African-Americans are leftists?

By Ramin Mazaheri for the Saker Blog There is an incredibly entrenched political non-reality in the US: a perception that having black skin makes one a reliable and righteous leftist. The US cannot talk honestly about politics – this is just another aspect of that. Looting can indeed have political motivations and messages, and I’ll get to that later, but the looters looting their own poor neighborhoods are not leftists – those looters are motivated

Protesting, corona-conscience, a good dole: the US is doing things it can’t & it’s chaos

by Ramin Mazaheri for the Saker Blog The US has recently been trying to become a modern, humane society – and this is one of the many great hard-won and predictable consequences from electing a corporate fascist like Trump – but the results are chaos. The US cannot protest Look at these tiny, piddling protests, rarely over 1,000 people. Millions of Iranians can march in silence, unity and respect; China

The Music of the Beast: a historicist portrait

Note by The Saker: when I first read this paper I was, frankly, baffled.  In my past I had studied musical theory (including dodecaphonism) and political science (including Marxism), but it never crossed my mind to combine these two.  This essay does exactly that and while I do find this combination rather strange, I also find it very original and interesting.  I hope that you will enjoy it too! The

The Power of Myth

by Jimmie Moglia for The Saker Blog It is sometimes easier to ascertain the ambiguities, disentangle the intricacies, and recover the meaning of events long past, than it is to recover the logic of events now current. For one, the information industry can easily muddy the waters of the understanding, thanks to their arsenal of weapons of mass confusion. But there is another subtle cause at play. The human mind

Hillary Clinton’s Six Foreign-Policy Catastrophes

by Eric Zuesse for The Saker Blog INTRODUCTION TO THIS UPDATED REPUBLICATION Though Hillary Clinton will, of course, be the direct topic here, we are now in the primaries-season for the 2020 elections, and almost all of the contenders for the Democratic Party nomination — and especially Biden, Buttigieg, and all of the others, except for Sanders and Gabbard — are foreign-policy clones of Ms. Clinton and of her former

Corruption in Vietnam

By Unorthodox Black Sheep VN (aka A Vietnamese Reader) for The Saker Blog I find out that my late article “What Wrong With Vietnam Today?” is too general about the corruption in Vietnam in both so I decide to go more details on the problems. The corruption stories is what I heard from the Vietnamese who was experiences in the painful ways, including me also get experiences from it. When

Deconstructing Islamophobia

[this article was written for the Unz Review] Introduction: a short survey of the cuckoo’s nest My initial idea was to begin with a definition of “Islamophobia” but after looking around for various definitions, I decided to use my own, very primitive definition.  I will define Islamophobia as the belief that Islam (the religion) and/or Muslims (the adherents to this religion) represent some kind of more or less coherent whole

Iranophobic propaganda factory of fake martyrs: the case of the Blue Girl

by *Ivan Kesić for the Saker Blog In the last two weeks, a heartbreaking story from Iran hit the world’s headlines. The storyline goes something like this: a female football fan, nicknamed as the Blue Girl, tried to enter the men-only Tehran’s Azadi Stadium in March this year and she was arrested by the security guards only because she was a woman. Six months later, more precisely in early September,

Here is the dirt Trump wanted from Zelensky about the Bidens and why Zelensky doesn’t want to give it to him — hidden by rampant falsehoods in the press

by Eric Zuesse for The Saker Blog In order to understand why Ukraine’s President Voldomyr Zelensky doesn’t want the dirt about Joe Biden to become public, one needs to know that Hunter Biden’s boss and benefactor at Burisma Holdings was, at least partly, Zelensky’s boss and benefactor until Zelensky became Ukraine’s President, and that revealing this would open up a can of worms which could place that former boss and

The Western propaganda of homosexuality and cannibalism

by Ruslan Ostashko Translated by Scott and captioned by Leo     The propaganda of perversions in the West has reached new heights. The British leading sports clubs promote the LGBT “values,” and their scientists drag cannibalism into the category of normal. No matter how much effort is made by the “normal countries” to promote degeneration, it never seems to be enough for them. In the course of pushing the

Boris Johnson, Brexit and the Deep State

by Nick Griffin for The Saker Blog Nick Griffin, a life-long opponent of the European Union and former Member of the European Parliament, explains why – after three years of believing that the rulers of Britain would block Brexit, he now believes it is more likely than not to be delivered. Are the British people really going to get Brexit? For years, the answer given by well-informed realists has had

Why are Western leaders gawd awful bad and China’s so darn competent? Part I.

Brown for The Saker Blog 30 July 2019 Crosslinked with: https://chinarising.puntopress.com/2019/07/30/why-are-western-leaders-gawd-awful-bad-and-chinas-so-darn-competent-part-i-china-rising-radio-sinoland-190730/ https://youtu.be/855RwhFvvv8 https://soundcloud.com/44-days/why-are-western-leaders-gawd-awful-bad-and-chinas-so-darn-competent-parti Pictured above: it’s the Beavis and Butt-Head Show. Or is it Butt-Head and Beavis? Does it really matter? They, like all Western political leaders are suborned from the get-go, by global capitalist 1% elites. Every time I come back to the West, this time in France, comparing Eurangloland and China just slaps me in
