A British anti-gay group called "Straight Pride UK" sent a press-release to a British blogger, expressing their admiration for Vladimir Putin's anti-gay laws, and the measures taken in African countries to criminalise gay people (Robert Mugabe has threatened to decapitate gay people). Afterwards, they changed their mind about the interview and sent a fraudulent DMCA takedown notice to WordPress.com, the blogger's host. WordPress -- who should have seen that there was no possible copyright violation in the interview -- caved and cooperated in censoring the post.
Hotham says that Nick Steiner, a press officer for the group, said in a document headed 'press release': "Straight Pride support what Russia and Africa is doing, these country have morals and are listening to their majorities."
"These countries are not 'anti-gay' – that is a term always used by the homosexual agenda to play the victim and suppress opinions and views of those against it.
"These countries have passed laws, these laws are to be respected and no other country should interfere with another country's laws or legislation."
When asked who the symbol of straight pride would be, the spokesman expressed more support for Vladimir Putin, whose crackdown on gay rights has been the trigger to a widespread anti-gay campaign in Russia.
