It appears that the Chechen president is trying to prove that he's a bigger prick than his buddy Vladimir Putin.
President Ramzan Kadyrov recently sat down for an interview about mixed martial arts, and the interviewer, David Scott from Real Sports, broached the subject of gays being rounded up and tortured by local authorities.
Kadyrov was quite candid in his reply. First, he denied that gay men even existed in Chechnya, but then said that if they did they needed to go far away. “To purify our blood, if there are any here take them,” he said. “If there are any take them to Canada.”
He added: "They are devils. They are for sale. They are not people. God damn them for what they are accusing us of. They will have to answer to the Almighty for this."
Later in the interview, he tried to pull a North Korea by threatening the US. “Even if our government were completely destroyed, our nuclear missiles would be automatically deployed. We will put the whole world on its knees and screw it from behind.”
It's times like this that we long for the days when Zeus would take a guy like this out with a lightning bolt! (And, let's face it, Zeus was a pretty hot daddy to boot!)
