Exposed! Congress’ 200 Top Homos Named

Uganda. In what is a remarkably brief ledger, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has leapt to the top of our listing of favorite–and certainly most entertaining–African leaders. Ratings giant CNN hilariously reports.

The cover of the Red Pepper newspaper read, “EXPOSED! Uganda’s 200 Top Homos Named,” with several photographs next to the headline.

On Monday, President Yoweri Museveni signed into law a bill that made some homosexual acts punishable by life in prison.

“They’re disgusting. What sort of people are they?” he told CNN’s Zain Verjee afterward. “I never knew what they were doing. I’ve been told recently that what they do is terrible. Disgusting. But I was ready to ignore that if there was proof that that’s how he is born, abnormal. But now the proof is not there.”

In November 2010, Rolling Stone — a local tabloid which has no relation to the iconic U.S. music magazine — listed 100 of what it called the country’s top gays and lesbians, with photos and addresses alongside a yellow banner reading, “hang them.”

Museveni had commissioned a group of Ugandan government scientists to study whether homosexuality is “learned,” concluding that it is a matter of choice.

“I was regarding it as an inborn problem,” he said. “Genetic distortion — that was my argument. But now our scientists have knocked this one out.”

The nation’s Parliament passed the bill in December, replacing the death penalty provision with a proposal of life in prison for “aggravated homosexuality.” This includes acts in which one person is infected with HIV, “serial offenders” and sex with minors, according to Amnesty International.

In cyber-space no one can hear you laugh. And I suppose that congressional delegation to Kampala is on hold pending legal review of acts constituting “aggravated homosexuality.” Unrelatedly, Senator Graham has announced a scheduling conflict with the trip.

Though the narrative on plain display is another uplifting tale of plucky Africans casting off the yoke of western cultural oppression. Like the tapping of happy beavers one can easily hear scriptwriters euphorically crafting the latest Hollywood blockbuster, their faces serene in beatific smiles. Academy awards, Oscar nominations, and peace prizes are soon to follow. President Museveni, you hold the heart of the liberal.

But there is a dark and bitter aspect of this story. A homosexual owned Southern California business–a public accommodation–has announced an openly discriminatory policy toward traditionalist black leaders We don’t want your kind here.

Owner David Cooley stated: “I’ve learned that I can’t stop crazy, ignorant or stupid, but I can stop it from coming through my doors.”

You’re about to be disabused of that notion, Jim Crow. You’re on the wrong side of history. We freedom-riders didn’t walk across a bridge and found the NAACP so that you could exclude people of color including even the President of Uganda from your sanctuary of hate. Mr. Seveni is coming. And he’s bringing a list.

  1. Prime Minister Cameron already has a solution to this problem – countries with anti-homosexual laws will be whipped into line by being yanked away from the foreign aid teat. I’m sure most African countries would have laws permitting slavery and burning suspected witches were it not for the prospect of having the flow of money from white taxpayers cut off.

  2. Museveni:

    We have been disappointed for a long time by the conduct of the West, the way you conduct yourselves there,” he told CNN’s Zain Verjee in Entebbe. “Our disappointment is now exacerbated because we are sorry to see that you live the way you live, but we keep quiet about it. Now you say ‘you must also live like us’ — that’s where we say no.

    And

    On Monday, Museveni rejected the suggestion that the new laws were a step back for Uganda and said he wasn’t concerned about the West’s perception of his country.
    “Worried? Not at all,” he told CNN. “If the West doesn’t want to work with us because of homosexuals, then we have enough space here to live by ourselves and do business with other people.”

    “We see how you do things, the families, how they’re organized. All the things, we see them, we keep quiet,” he said. “It’s not our country, maybe you like it. So there’s now an attempt at social imperialism — to impose social values of one group on our society.”

    My God, can we draft this guy in time for the Republican primaries?

    • Pope? I didn’t think Museveni was jewish. Anyway, Here’s a story about some jewish bishops'(translates into “rabbi” apparently) trip to Rome where they were entertained by the pontiff. See the last paragraph:

      Another rabbi Serotta related, offered the Pope a traditional blessing. When Pope Francis said in English, “Pray for me,” the rabbi responded in Hebrew with the blessing: Yimakh shemo.

      I think it really meant a lot to the pope.
