A gay diversion

via A gay diversion | The Zimbabwean 1 October 2014 by Jera

Attacking gays and using them as a diversion is a Zanu (PF) survival skill, much like racism and anti-Semitism were Adolf Hitler’s ploy to gain popularity in Germany. When things are bad – unemployment, company closures, power cuts – people look for something or someone to blame.

Aware that they are the root cause of the country’s woes, Zanu (PF) quickly blamed sanctions and pointed an accusing finger at gays. But hate speech is like a gun. It is designed to vanquish one’s enemies but is just as harmful if used against one’s friends. Suddenly the same hate speech levelled at Mugabe’s opponents has become the weapon of choice in the ongoing Zanu (PF) faction wars.

Apparently there are gangsters in Zanu (PF). Not just your garden variety gangsters – but gay gangsters.

In apparent reference to Saviour Kasukuwere and Jonathan Moyo, Mliswa said Zanu (PF) is ‘in the hands of gay gangsters.’ Mliswa was responding to allegations that he and other Zanu (PF) MPs sought funding for developmental projects from – don’t say it out loud – the American embassy.

The reasonable man, sitting with newspaper open, asks; how long have these gay gangsters been in Zanu (PF) and why are they only being unveiled, rather conveniently, two months from the party’s elective congress? The reasonable observer does not dwell on the mundane. If he is, once again, without electricity and if his child, a varsity graduate, is scraping a living as an airtime vendor, the reasonable observer knows that gays have no part in any of it. He knows the West is not to blame. If things are not right, the blame rests squarely on the nonagenarian shoulders of the government.

    The Gay people I have met are neither thugs, nor greedy, and are of above average intelligence….they are therefore not qualified to join ZANU. Can’t be….

    Brothers, this is 2014…………. Gay or straight, black or white, all that matters is if can you do the job you have been asked to do. The rest of the world understands this and prospers but in Zim we still act like we are in the dark ages.

    Homophobia is often a diversion from latent homosexuality. Psychologists are well aware that furthermore Mugabe boy who has an obvious inferiority complex is very effeminate and sexually ambivalent

      Mugabe doesn’t have an inferiority complex. Why should anyone who attacks the west be labeled as having an inferiority complex? A lot of the things Mugabe says about the west are true. Its just that at home he has a bad record and therefore everything he says is met with derision. Rather, those people who lie in bed with the west at every turn are the ones with an inferiority complex. Its like one of those black chics who dates and screws white guys. There’s an inferiority complex for you. If people in Zim were living the good life they so desire, i’m sure every word mugabe says would be gold. Mugabe is no saint, for sure, but when it comes to the west, no one understands the west better than that man, certainly not you born frees

    Ah well, how could The Bhobho not have know about Banana – putting his banana where it should not have gone? Of course The Bhobho must have known.

    If Mugabe was not so utterly stupid, and if he could read and understand that being gay is not a life choice – it is like race, something you are born with.

    The Bhobho may have “many degrees” (including violence) but he is obviously too senile, or stupid, or both to understand this.

    He really is a despicable creature – how on earth could Little Thabo make him King of Zimbabwe? ???

      Maybe you are gay… but please understand that this is an unnatural practice & particularly in Zim… please allow us to outlaw this satanist practice.

    Homosexuality is expressly forbidden in God’s word! It is not the person that is hated but the sin. This applies in all sin. I say no to homosexuality. Like all of us sinners-no matter what sin we are guilty of- they need to repent. I do NOT subscribe to hating gay people or to persecuting them but I do NOT subscribe to gay marriage and the like. Zimbabwe’s laws must follow the laws of God. Full stop. But I will say ZPF have also written many ungodly and unjust laws.

    If God hates homosexuals then it’s wise to seek the divine help than just lie to yourself saying I am born like that. The devil is real ………as real as we all are

    to be honest i really believe in the bible as you all say , but ini hangu i think panyaya yechingochgani there must be a mistake somewhere , since rakanyogwa navanhu there might be an error , or maybe in future there will be an amendment by God himself cos it must really be natural , if you are gay its so tough to change just as it is to be a heterosexual , which heterosexual can change from kuda vakadzui , its so tough , thus how tough it is with being gay .Infact vangani vanhu vanotewvera zvinoda bhaibheri pano hmkmm , if gays are condemned then even prostitutes too should be , why do you leave them out,tarisai , it should not be criminalised , seek to understand first maybe magmo or zvatirikudhla check , and how do you know many of this generation you will produce stabanes amidst writing a constitution yekuvhumira kuurawa kwengochani , u mean worerga mwana wako achiurawa and be cold a criminal just for being attracted to the same sex , koiro bhaibheri rinoti zvakafanana zvitema wani , people lets think and lets concentrate on building the ecomnomy ,nowonder most women even suffer in marriage , you will even be surprised how many married man are gay , iye mliswa might also be a stabane how did he even know , kuti akasvirana navo aghhh hmmm ,i worship the lord ini .

      Ngulube I am not sure what you mean by “Watch out for your family” Are you insulting Gay people with such a comment? Let me tell you that my daughter was accosted by two heterosexuals on the street in broad daylight and thanks be to God there were two GAY MEN across the road who went to her rescue and chased those hyenas…..think about THAT!
