News Alert! No Homosexuals in Iran!

Thank you, Jacob, for contributing this picture. I find this to be absolutely evil!

This is according to the "nutter in chief" when asked about the abuse of women and homosexuals by the government of Iran. Ahmadinejad said, "We don't have homosexuals" in Iran. "I don't know who told you we had it,". This response elicited laughs and boos from the audience, much different than the rousing applause he received for his remarks on Israel and the plight of the palestinians. The absence of Iranian homosexuals is due in large part because they're locked up or stoned to death in the public square.

The "talk" was for the benefit of the Iranian people. I'm sure the opening statement by Lee Bollinger won't be broadcast to the Iranian populous. Bollinger called Ahmadinejad a "petty and cruel dictator" and he assailed Ahmadinejad's "denying" of the Holocaust as "ridiculous" and "dangerous propaganda." He accused the Iranian leader of either being brazenly provocative "or astonishingly uneducated." I believe he's simply evil.

In true nutter fashion, the answers were long winded and off track, never directly addressing the questions. Columbia University give him a platform from which he gave a completely ineffective presentation of the Iranian world view.

It'll be interesting to see how the dog and pony spectacle is viewed in Iran and across the middle east.

The ones that aren't stoned to death or in prison are still in the closet.
