Marriage is totally Gay

And Iran don’t need to even enter the debate as according to their president, they have no gays.

Why are libtards so racist?

Edit. Sorry. Sorry. I know.

Boris Yeltsin was the man.

Yeah-nah.
This isn’t the place for it, but those pics are a clever* pr campaign.
And they don’t care about ironic memes about them, because
a) people don’t get irony
b) they reinforce the image anyway, and
c) there’s also this disarming thing about the memes that happens to play into very, very stupid propaganda from the US over the last ten years which says, ‘Hey, the country that was our biggest threat for the last fifty years was actually a basket-case all along! Don’t worry!’
So sure, repost the hell out of them.

But don’t think the pics are some sort of accident, or put out for no reason, or just a bit of fun.

*not new. At all. But it works, so I’ll stick with clever.

And that’s why I like Putin, hence posting the pics, not because he’s a mans man riding a shark but because him or his henchmen (probably wrong turn of phrase there) have almost made him a comic book character in the west that can be laughed at when really he is a major world force who should not be underestimated.

Anywho…Vote YES


#1162

From what I’ve read the ones Putin doesn’t like are the ones that make him look effiminate.


#1163

Agree on the vote yes but you should rethink Putin.
He’s a dangerous maniac who kills his political enemies and has made Russia into an even more corrupt cesspool than it was before his ascension.

Well IT, I find it really difficult to reconcile that we are a caring and a sharing community, when we have a lot of Australians who are homophobic, racist and bigoted. A survey for Marriage Equality that show only about 55% of support makes me angry and distressed.

We continue to vote for a Government (and Opposition) that locks up refugees, we don’t really care much about the environment, but as long as I’m OK then it is alright Jack !!

I thought I had mistakenly clicked across to the Betoota Advocate when reading this article. Life imitating satire.

’Imma go harder’: Macklemore responds to NRL grand final controversy

US rapper Macklemore has promised to “go harder” despite being unwittingly caught up in Australia’s divisive marriage equality postal survey.

After it was revealed the Thrift Shop hit-maker would be performing his chart-topping single Same Love during the NRL Grand Final pre-show entertainment, conservative commentators and conservative former prime ministers joined forces to express their outrage.

One tabloid commentator drew attention to the fact Tony Wall, whose claim to fame is 10 games for the Western Suburbs Magpies in 1995, had launched a change.org petition to “remove LGBTIQ politics out of the awesome sport of Rugby League” or it would be “difficult to watch the NRL grand final” due to the “LGBTIQ anthem taking centre stage”.

The petition caught the attention of former prime minister Tony Abbott, who tweeted “Footy fans shouldn’t be subjected to a politicised grand final. Sport is sport!”

One of Abbott’s senior colleagues, Attorney-General George Brandis, on Thursday described Abbott’s comments as “bizarre”.

“For Mr Abbott and anyone else to say that it should be banned I think is a bizarre thing to say. I thought Mr Abbott believed in freedom of speech,” he told ABC TV on Thursday.

Twitter users were quick to draw attention to the many times Abbott has used sport for this own political benefit, while others demanded Macklemore change his set list.

It took less than 24 hours for the brouhaha to reach Macklemore’s ears, and he used a promo spot on US radio show The Cruz Show to respond.

“I’m actually going to Australia to perform at, kind of, the Superbowl of their rugby league,” he told hosts J Cruz, Krystal B and Jeff Garcia.

"It’s interesting because I am playing Same Love, and they are going through, right now, trying to legalise same-sex marriage.

“I’m getting a lot of tweets from angry old white dudes in Australia. I think there is a petition today to ban me from playing.”

This prompted one of the hosts to chip in that he should go harder.

“Imma go harder, Imma love,” Macklemore responded.

Despite the petition, which has gained just over 7000 supporters, the NRL has confirmed the song will be performed during the grand final.

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson said she did not know who Macklemore was, but she also criticised the politicising of sport.

“I think people have had it up to here with the same-sex marriage issue,” she told the Seven Network.

“We’ve got so many other great artists in this country that we could actually put up there.”

Senator Hanson said she would rather see Australian artists John Farnham or Daryl Braithwaite perform at the grand final.

It never ceases to amaze me the contempt the Left have for the average hard working Australian.

We live in one of the luckiest countries in the world yet people still whinge and moan - desperately trying to get on the victim train.

If you despise your fellow countrymen so much then hop on a plane to Venezuela or Cuba. You will have no trouble getting in.

Yet racist, homophobic Australia has queues of people from all over the world trying to migrate here. Go figure.

The funniest thing about all this he says hes getting tweets from old white guys…seriously old white guys wouldn’t know who he was and they don’t use twitter…

Donald Trump uses twitter

They’ve been drawn by the siren song of John Farnham and Daryl Braithewaite.
Seems kind of unfair that we lock them up in a different country.
