Gold medal for double-speak

Fifty years after the height of the Cold War and the Russians are still coming. This time they're coming after anyone who states anything positive about homosexuality. Or even doesn't state anything negative about it.

Funny how homosexuality makes strange bedfellows. I refer to those who are so afraid of it they try to demonise it – far-right Christians and extreme ex-commies.

We invaded Iraq because its leaders were crushing its people's human rights but we unquestioningly support the Russian Olympics even though the host government is crushing its people's human rights. Gold medals all round for double standards.
