Lady Gaga, who has nearly as many Twitter followers as Vladimir Putin received votes for president in 2012, and far more Facebook likes than he has votes, has launched a withering attack on the Putin dictatorship on Twitter and Facebook. Here is her trio of Tweets in response to Putin’s announcement that she and Madonna would face punishment for daring to express sympathy for homosexuals during recent performances in Russia.
Lady Gaga openly taunts Putin, calling him a coward for failing to arrest her when he had the chance. Her blast at Putin on Facebook has nearly 100,000 “likes” from readers and nearly 4,000 comments. Lady Gaga has twenty times more Twitter followers than Russian “prime minister” and former president Dima Medvedev.
Once again, the Putin regime stands humiliated before the eyes of a slack-jawed world. Putin has announced that he plans to arrest homosexual athletes who act gay during the Sochi Olympics. This brazen repudiation of the Olympic spirit should preclude any civilized nation from sending athletes to the games.
We call for a boycott.
