Snowden v. gay rights in Russia

We knew all along that it was only a matter of time before CIA shills would condemn Edward Snowden for having accepted Russia's offer of asylum.

We at the Falling Downs think tank are all aboard for gay rights and same-sex marriage etc.

We are disturbed by recent anti-queer legislation in Russia.

But if we are forced to choose between Edward Snowden finding sanctuary and gay Russians having a pride parade, well, it's a no-brainer.

"Gay" has been co-opted through and through in the West, to the point where the CIA empowers a gay "Employee Resource Group" to make sure that gay CIA staffers are not discriminated against.

However laudable that may be, some things are more important than "gay rights."
