Russian Gay Rights Leader Condemned for Antisemitic Tweets

By: JTA

One of Russia’s most prominent gay rights activists made anti-Semitic statements on his Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The tweets appeared last week on Nikolai Alexeyev’s account in connection with an article about him in OUT Magazine. Alexeyev re-tweeted comments calling the author of the article, Michael Lucas, a “Jewish pig” and “Israeli monkey,” and calling OUT Magazine a “Jewish slut magazine that supports Jews and their filthy faggotry propaganda.”

In response to the comments, Human Rights First, an American nongovernmental organization, canceled a conference call featuring Alexeyev, prompting him to write on Twitter: “I [was] just denied to take part in a sham conference call with U.S. journalists tomorrow. Jewish lobby in U.S. worked well. U.S.A. is a totalitarian state with no freedom of speech! I have much more freedom here in Russia!”

The tweets caused several prominent gay rights activists to distance themselves from Alexeyev, 37, who has won several awards for his activism, including from GALHA, a British group affiliated with Amnesty International. He also has filed precedent-setting lawsuits for gay rights in Russia and elsewhere in Europe.

OUT magazine is a popular gay monthly publication in the United States.

Gay rights in Russia have attracted international attention in recent weeks after the Russian parliament passed a law in June prohibiting the dissemination of “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors.”

    I guess because many in the GLBT movement are leftists, and the Left is for the most part anti-Israe4l and anti-Semitic.

    as always, to deflect damage from themselves, they call out on the common enemy, namely the Jews. They know that by traditional Jewish law, homosexuality is an abomination by GOD so they look for allies to protect themselves.

    During WWII, majority of the Nazi hierarchy are/were gay.

    No matter how much they try to hide it, their true selves always come out in a moment of honesty.

    shame, us "devious and dirty Jews" tend to fight for the rights he is being denied in his own country.
