Putin Bans All Protests For Months In Sochi, Russia

A ban on protests and demonstrations is no longer limited by law to those rallies that are LGBT in nature thanks to a new decree signed by Russian president Vladimir Putin. 

PinkNews reports:

The decree, signed today will block all demonstrations and rallies from taking place, will take effect for two and a half months covering the games, reports the Associated Press.

Published in the government newspaper, the decree states that all “gatherings, rallies, demonstrations, marches and pickets” which are not part of the Winter Olympics or Paralympics will be barred in the city between 7 Jan and 21 March 2014.

The Sochi Winter Olympics is due to take place between 7 and 23 February, and the Paralympics are due to take place on 7 to 16 March.

The decree also goes further to dictate that security measures should be tightened in Sochi, including the restriction of vehicle entry.

Such decrees are rare, allowing the world to speculate that Putin's latest anti-democratic measure is just another attempt to silence gays and international criticism of his draconian anti-gay law.

Hitler would be so proud of him. He disserves to hang just like Hitler did. Maybe he'll be as cowardly as Hitler and do the world all a favor and poison himself, but he loves himself too much to do that - so someome please take the f@#ker out.

so i take it it is still the 1930's little country called Germany ring a bell

Prelude to WORLD WAR 2

What is this man afraid of?  Is anyone allowed to express themselves or even be themselves in this sad country?  No wonder that their population is shrinking.  Their birth rate keeps dropping and there is zero immigration.  Who wants to live there?

So I guess it's the  1930's and Germany all over again...

And all this from a little piss-ant of a man who relishes baring his pudgy, white and hairless chest in the oddest of situations and settings! How fricking homo-erotic is his need to flash his tits everywhere he goes anyway?!?! What a filthy, used douche bag he is! Maybe he is fighting his own gayness and has deeply-entrenched self-hatred in spades, so he lashes out at those he envies and craves, desires, needs the most? Probably not, but it's a thought. Regardless, he will get a mighty damned slap when Karma spins around and bitch slaps his sorry ass HARD and DEEP! He deserves nothing less!

So his answer to human rights violations is to further limit and tighten the noose around more human rights!? Nice goin Vlad!

Prelude to a World War...
