MEMO TO VLADIMIR PUTIN RE: G-20 MEETING
To: President Vladimir Putin, President of Russia

Re: Complaints About Your Crackdown on Homosexual Propaganda
Dear President Putin:
I know you’re busy hosting the meeting of the G-20 leaders n St. Petersburg. So, I’ll keep this memo brief.
Along with discussion of economic issues and the planned U.S. aggression against Syria, you may also find yourself criticized for recent legislation passed by the Duma restricting homosexual propaganda and recruitment. I know homosexuality is not the issue. It is legal in Russia. These people can pursue their peculiar practices in private. However, consistent with your country’s Christian traditions, your parliament does not want to see the sort of recruitment and aggressive propagandizing that we see in Canada and the U.S. That is your right as a sovereign country.
The restrictions on homosexual propagandizing have attracted much criticism in the West in the run-up to your hosting next year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi.
At this Summit, you may run into Canada’s Foreign Minister John Baird. He is an outspoken ultra Zionist and sometimes makes one think he is really the Honourable Member for Tel Aviv, rather than a minister charged with promoting Canada’s interests.
Even though many in the Conservative caucus are strong Christians, the Canadian government has recently become a key promoter of the homosexual agenda. Baird is a preachy pest and may try to bend your ear with criticisms of your country’s law against homosexual propaganda. He’ll tell you pompously how Canada believes in free speech.
I don’t know the Russian words for “hypocrite” and “phony”, but they would certainly fit. After he tells you all about Canada’s commitment to free speech, ask him: “What about Brad Love, Arthur Topham, and Craig Cobb, Mr. Minister? Aren’t they your political prisoners facing prison solely for the non-violent expression of their political or religious views? Don’t you have a ‘hate propaganda’ law that seeks to protect privileged groups from criticism?”
And just to send the canting finger-wagger on his way, you can give him a copy of this “information” laying charges against Craig Cobb under Canada’s notorious “hate law”: “Paul Craig Cobb between the 10th day of January, 2010, and the 18th day of June, 2010, in the Province of British Columbia by communicating statements other than in private conversation did willfully promote hatred against identifiable groups, namely, Jewish people, Black people and non-White people contrary to Sec. 319(2) of the Criminal Code.”
It’s not even clear, from this information sworn out by Det/Cst. Terry Wilson commissar of the “hate squad” on December 31, 2010, how or where Mr. Cobb is supposed to have communicated these alleged statements. He is a dual U.S. and Canadian citizen. He went into political exile in the U.S. to stay beyond the reach of Canada’s thought control police.
So, if John Baird starts any of his free speech is “a core Canadian value” cong and dance, call his bluff and give him the Russian equivalent of a big old horse laugh!
