Good work guys - rape, jingoism and militarism in the service of "gay pride".

I have no problem with ridiculing heads of state, they deserve it for the most part, nor with finding fault with treatment of LGBT in Iran - but this is just gratuitous and demeaning.

I investigated the group Iran180 that was behind the float, and found other instances where this Israel lobby astroturfing group used anti-gay and even anti-Jewish depictions in their public actions. See
