A Holocaust in the Making

The president of Gambia, Yahya Jammeh, has in effect declared war on his countries gay and lesbian citizens. This religious crackpot has declared;

"An ultimatum to homosexuals, drug dealers, thieves and other criminals, to leave The Gambia or face serious consequences if caught.
"The President equally warned all those who harbour such individuals to kick them out of their compounds, noting that a mass patrol will be conducted on the instructions of the IGP and the director of the Gambia Immigration Department to weed bad elements in society.

He has also charmingly pointed out;

"He stated that a law is in place regarding this unlawful acts tougher than the Iranian laws and warned those involve in this infamous activities to desist from them."

This is the logical outcome of the eliminationist rhetoric of bigots like Sally Kern. The difference here is the hateful thug runs the country. We must act now to save the LGBT community of Gambia from being murdered. Write your congressman, senator, the president and your local newspaper. Raise holly hell now before the killing begins.

It baffles me that human rights abuses are used to justify other wars but this is being overlooked. I know fundamentalists in this country would like to make the same sort of declarations, and it reassures me that they don't have enough power to do so. But for the same reason that they don't have the power--the fact that there are a lot of decent, compassionate people in this country--is why I don't understand the lack of outrage.

I truly don't understand how come they just don't kill that bastard. They must stop waiting on Amnesty International or the US to save them.

The next genocide - gays and lesbians. They just need to go ahead and kill him.
