President of Belarus: “I’d rather be a dictator than gay”

Partying like it’s 1988, Belarus president Alexander Lukashenko retains Soviet-era controls on the economy and media, not to mention opposition groups.

As Germany withdrew its ambassador from Minsk last week, calling the regime “the last dicatorship in Europe”, Lukashenko hit back with a homophobic barb at German foreign minister Guido Westerwelle, remarking:

“I’d rather be a dictator than gay.”

Luckily for Alexander, his comb-over and almost toothbrush moustache make him a good fit for the former.
