Zimbabwe President Wants to Behead Gay People

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe continued his long history of violent and barbaric anti-gay rhetoric during a rally for that country’s upcoming elections, saying that it is imperialism to condition aid on treating gay people like human beings because gays should be beheaded.

“If you take men and lock them in a house for five years and tell them to come up with two children and they fail to do that, then we will chop off their heads,” he said on Tuesday.

Mugabe, who has described gays as worse than barn yard animals, also criticized Barack Obama for linking foreign aid to the protection of LGBT rights, and slammed African countries that have not criminalized same-sex acts, saying they are “succumbing to European countries in exchange for aid.”

“We need continuity of our culture. This culture comes from the norm that women carry pregnancies for nine months. If there is anyone who disputes that, he should lift up his hands to say no I fell from heaven,” Mugabe said.

“This thing [homosexuality] seeks to destroy our lineage by saying John and John should wed, Maria and Maria should wed. Imagine this son born out of an African father, [US President Barrack] Obama says if you want aid, you should accept the homosexuality practice. Aah, we will never do that,” he said.

Then we shouldn’t give you any aid at all. We wouldn’t want to be imperialistic, would we?

    It’s not imperialism to try to pressure governments to respect universal human rights.

    Rewarding corrupt officials and their cronies for allowing international corporations to exploit the people? That’s imperialism.

    Bob Mugabe is further proof that the good die young—the earth will be a better place when this POS takes his last breath

    Betcha Mugabe doesn’t have a clue how southern African cultures pre-colonialism treated what we now call gay people. The “culture” he’s talking about is one heavily based on what a bunch of Europeans believed in the 18th and 19th centuries, with a few elements of traditional cultures that survived colonialism thrown in.

    This thing [homosexuality] seeks to destroy our lineage by saying John and John should wed, Maria and Maria should wed.

    Is he confusing same-sex marriage with same-name marriage? I don’t support same-name marriage! It’s unnatural.
