[su_right_ad]What a coincidence! Tim Cook announced he’s gay and a monument comes down in Russia.

The monument was set up by the Russian company ZEFS outside a St. Petersburg college, and a statement attributed to them run by several Russian news outlets reads, “After Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly called for sodomy, the monument was dismantled pursuant to Russian federal law on the protection of children from information that promotes the denial of traditional family values.”

And while this could very well be the case, given how homosexuals are treated under Russian law, the news outlet Russia Today highlights a statement made to another news outlet in which the college says they got a letter about the statue’s removal days before Cook came out.

Though keep in mind, there was one Russian lawmaker who said very prominently that because Cook is gay, he could bring Ebola or AIDS to Russia so they should “ban him for life.”[su_csky_ad]

    That’s a punishment, being banned from Russia for life?

    After all, they can’t let Russia be contaminated by Teh Gay.

    This is where I’d like Gohmert, Steve King, Rick Wiles and every anti-gay organization to go live. They’re all about having their straight rights being taken away because “everything’s getting gay!”, so shove off!

    Anyhow, Tim Cook isn’t bothered, seriously. It’s better not to have an avatar of himself in a country that hates him anyway.

    No wonder right wingers love Vladimir Putin.

    Russia already is the repressive hellhole for gay people that they want America to be.

    There was a Steve Jobs monument in Russia? Who would have thought?
