My grandparents came from Babruysk, Belarus. Lukashenko has said of the city: "This is a Jewish city and the Jews are not concerned for the place they live in. They have turned Babruysk into a pigsty... I call on Jews who have money to come back to Babruysk."

/Not going to take him up on the offer.

He'd rather be a dictator than be a homosexual? Isn't there some middle ground between the two choices?

Lukashenko needs to burn.
Scumbag with no pride except in his own power.
The people need schools, jobs and food not big f-off libraries!

But really, Belarus just needs to rejoin Russia and quit trying to be a country. They even signed a union treaty but have been dragging their feet. It's not like they will be giving up any freedom as they're already an authoritarian "state."

Nope its quite binary. At birth, you will either be straight, gay, or a dictator.

Lionel Mandrake: Eastern European dictators have a lot in common with the Republican Party


His successor, Alexander Lukashenko, changed all of that upon assuming office in 1994 and began to turn his attention away from the West and back towards Russia. And, during his rule, Lukashenko began to re-instate Soviet-era functions and reintroduced the symbols from Soviet Belarus. Lukashenko, who is still in power, has caused increased focus on his country due to his leadership manner, which has been considered authoritarian by some and a dictatorship by others.

Yeah, he totally sounds like a Republican, since he's apparently a communist and all. Let me check where communism falls on the political spectrum... Oh, extreme left? Wait, but I thought, I was told... that anti-homosexual sentiments were purely a right wing and religious thing... How can THIS BE? Oh wait, homophobia, along with racism, and sexism, are not a 'left vs right' thing where one side does it and the other side doesn't.

Those kinds of hatred know no political boundaries and you will find both the staunch socialist and the severe free market capitalist can both be equally racist.

I would have ticked the box that said "Dictator" when I got the choice of gay or straight, had I known.

There is some pretty strong evidence to show a fourth, even more secret "pope" option.

"In North America people who submit to the established authorities to
extraordinary degrees often turn out to be political conservatives, so you can call
them "right-wingers" both in my new-fangled psychological sense and in the usual
political sense as well. But someone who lived in a country long ruled by Communists
and who ardently supported the Communist Party would also be one of my
psychological right-wing authoritarians even though we would also say he was a
political left-winger. So a right-wing authoritarian follower doesn't necessarily have
conservative political views. Instead he's someone who readily submits to the
established authorities in society, attacks others in their name, and is highly
conventional. It's an aspect of his personality, not a description of his politics. Rightwing
authoritarianism is a personality trait, like being characteristically bashful or
happy or grumpy or dopey." Bob Altemeyer - The Authoritarians

He sounds like a Republican because of his authoritarianism, which is stronger in the Republican party (though not, sadly, absent by any means in the Democratic).

I hope I'm half that adorable when I'm his age. That is one good looking foreign minister.

I am upset but not surprised by the reaction Lukashenko had to being questioned. His response was typical of an adolescent, narcissist bully. Somebody questioned something about his conduct that he does not want examined. His response was to belittle the source..."ha ha, you're gay." It sounds like something from an emotionally-repressed, hostile seventh-grader. Pull away all of the doctrinal rationales that an adult like Lukashenko can use, such as supposed religious convictions, and you are left with an adolescent reaction.

He's a sad little abuse case who is unable to grow up, like most criminals and fascist-totalitarians. He responds to challenges to his conduct or to his convictions in the same way; violence. Where he cannot physically repress and humiliate, he uses verbal violence, effectively attacking the importance or person-hood of whomever questions him.

You mean one can't be a dictatorial ruler and be gay? Someone should have told these guys:

You mean I had a choice? Because I'd quite like to be a dictator, I think it would be kind of fun. Nobody told me I had that option.
 
2012-03-08 12:03:27 AM
Oh, he perfers to be a real problem as opposed to something conservitives only think is a problem?

IS GOOD LOGIC
