When you have an authoritarian government, you need two enemies: an enemy without an enemy within.

There is one thing that Russia does not lack, and that is plenty of enemies.

Authoritarian systems fall apart if you don't have your people living in fear.

/Yes, I know "without" is archaic in this sense, but it sounds better to use without/within instead of outside/within

I think the term you're looking for is "parallel construction" - which the within / without combination works well with.

Following the logic of the author, you could recognize the existence of maniacs, serial killers, etc. as normal and even effective

Funny...attacking the guys in stripes as "gay" here in this article.

Yer right...not funny. The way it is with asshats now days. Cause you wouldn't get it. And some one up there actually has the nerve to mention "backwards" Backwards is what most of the world thinks of the gay society. But hey...lets just let it be...If America is all about "anything is ok", then what can you say against it?

But the "Guys in Stripes" are the gay ones. Nothing wrong with saying that.

I'm the only gay Eskimo
In my tribe

I go out seal hunting with my best friend Tarka
But all want to do is get into his parka

I'm the only gay Eskimo
In my tribe

Well me and Nukflukchukbuk
We both like blubber
But me I've got this crazy fetish for rubber

I'm the only gay Eskimo
In my tribe

I make a wish on the Northern Lights
That I can find a decent pair of whaleskin tights

I'm the only gay Eskimo

I hope we see some scenes like this during the Olympics, as a "f*ck you!" to the homophobes.

If they crack down Olympic commentators and athletes. It might one of the last times we'll see Russian Hosting the event, and if they crack down on population and guests the same would apply.

This could be a big moment if Russia decides No-Homos no statements. Etc.

The Olympic Committee might not want to approve Russia again for any hosting events..and probably should have shut that one down due to the OC charter.

It's the old "If you don't tolerate intolerance, you're intolerant" tripe that gets rediscovered by every new 13 year old learning to use the internet.
 
2013-11-20 02:30:53 AM
If the people running the Olympics weren't a bunch of money grubbing assholes, we could try to get the event cancelled.  Doing it would hurt the Russians big time because they need the money.

Unfortunately, the Olympic committee loves money far too much to do anything.

Given the odds, there's got to be at least a handful of gay hockey players who will be competing at the Olympics. They should all come out en masse during the Olympics. Though, considering that hockey players are allergic to anything that might be considered drawing attention away from the team, it's not going to happen. But oh, it would be beautiful.

Eh, sampling bias.  You don't actually know if someone's a serial killer in the identity sense if they fail or get caught on the first one.  They could as easily be a garden-variety murderer, and you'd never know 'cause now they're in jail.

If a gay guy fails at his first hookup, though, he can keep trying until he finds an actual date, so its much easier to get an idea of average effectiveness.
