Serbian Protest Of Gay Pride Parade Turns Into Violent Riot!

Just disgusting.

A gay pride march in Belgrade, Serbia turned violent on Sunday when 6,000 right-wing, anti-gay rioters descended upon the crowd with Molotov cocktails and stun grenades, ultimately leaving 140 hurt and 200 arrested.

5,600 riot police were on hand to battle the rioters, who screamed "death to homosexuals!" as they tried to break through security cordons, set fire to cars, hurled bricks through windows, resulting in $1.39 million in damages. Police were forced to rely on tear gas to restore peace.

Political analyst Miljenko Dereta explained:

"This was undoubtedly a political message, an attempt to destabilize the country and this government. The rioters had political support."

However, President Boris Tadic was left undeterred by the extremist actions, and maintains:

"Serbia will guarantee human rights for all its citizens, regardless of the differences among them, and no attempts to revoke these freedoms with violence will be allowed."

Democratic Party spokeswoman Jelana Trivan continues:

"These riots obviously have nothing to do with the gay parade or any moral values. These are hooligan gangs which must be punished severely."

Luckily, Belgrade's streets are covered with security cameras, and Senior Justice Ministry official Slobodan Homen claims that many of the rioters have been identified and arrested, and could face up to eight years in prison!

Unbelievable!

As devastated as we are to learn that this despicable and barbaric behavior occurred due to bigotry and hate, we have to applaud the Serbian government for handling everything with such commitment and integrity!

Your support in such an important cause is truly appreciated!

Equal rights for ALL! It's happening, whether you like it or not!

  2. 2

    wow.. sounds like their government handled this well.. also sounds like these morons will be punished harshly.. as they should!



  3. 3

    HIGH-larious!



  4. 4

    they should be punished like any other terrorists.. simple



  5. 5

    Yes, equal rights for all! The rioters have the right to protest against this shiz. Public displays of gayety like this should be forbidden!



  6. 6

    Is this really a surprise? They can't even tolerate each other as it is.



  7. 7

    8 years in prison ? If only Serbia gave the same sentence to rapists … it would be a much better country.

    Mario, as a few hundred other posters have noted recently, way too many stories on this site are about gay issues. No shit, about 1 out of every 3 posts is about gay shit. You are a fucking huge bully and therefore shouldn't be a part of this anti-bullying campaign. You out people and call them gay slurs like "dykon" and therefore shouldn't be a part of this "It gets better" campaign for gay youth. Lastly, you should shut the fuck up about equal rights for all. Just yesterday you bashed that polygamist family on TLC and if you supported plural marriage then you wouldn't have trashed their lifestyle.

    Riots are so much fun. I'm sorry I missed this. I'm sure that the Serbian police will take care of this much like they did with the Bosnians.



  10. 10

    hahah gay



  11. 11

    so sad :(



  12. 12

    Dammit! I wish I could have been there for that! Amazing!



  13. 13

    Who are you trying to kid with this "equal rights for all" bvllshlt? Everyone who reads you knows that with you it's equal rights for gays and fvck everyone else. Serbia is not the U.S.A. and even if it was, equal rights means *all people* are free to feel how they feel and think how they think, not just gays. Grow up little man.

    Re: Secret Message – I assume you are straight. That means you cannot be fired from your job, kicked out of rental housing and kept out of your partner's hospital room by the nurses and doctors just because you are straight. Gay people do not have these rights. So get over yourself.



  18. 18

    ITS NICE TO SEE THAT THE PEOPLE IN SERBIA ARE STANDING UP FOR MORALITY AND OPPOSING THE HOMOSEXUAL LIFESTYLE

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – - if it weren't for the fowl languge, this comment would have been readable. Not sure why you're attacking Perez over a gay march in Serbia …. ? Just to get our attention ? Personally I think Perez is ultra-bright but just has to look around for some even brighter mentor, that's all. If the mentor will not be gay, then he will remain as famous as he is, and as bright as he is today. Even though I am not gay, and not of his generation, I admire his courage. And I find him funnier than Jon Stewart. This is not a joke !

    Re: El loco Norwegian – They had the right to protest the gay pride event, but they do not have the right to throw stun grenades and molotov cocktails into crowds. derp.



  21. 21

    Re: MarioMonjack – Ah, but it's so moral to try and murder people. Funny thing, bigot's sense of morality excuses murder and violence, but frowns on love.

    Re: Dolce Whisper – LOL Fowl language? Fowl language?!!! OMG I'm fucking dying of laughter :) Fowl language sounds like a British 80's punk band or the title of a snazzy linguist's first tome. YOUR post was unreadable. You're a hyprocrite just like Perez Hilton.
    PS Jon Stewart is a pissant



  23. 23

    well, you're bound to get some fires with that many flamers.



  24. 24

    Yo dumbass … there is no "right wing" in Serbia. Stupid fucktard.

  25. Emesa says – reply to this

    Re: Unbelievable! – Of course there is a right wing in Serbia!!!!!! Right wing in politics usually just means conservative or supporting of 'tradtional' values, e.g the church or monarchy etc
    There is a right wing in any state (country).



  26. 26

    THEY HAVE TO FIGHT IT (AND I STRONGLY AGREE), OR IN 10 YRS PEDOPHILES WILL DEMAND THEIR OWN PARADE, ENOUGH OF THESE LOOSE MORAL DEVILS (THAT MEANS U TOO PEREZ)



  27. 27

    Yet again we see the "moral" people perpetrating violence. Idiots have always been the bane of humanity.

    Re: El loco Norwegian

    They have the right to protest. They do not have the right to be violent. It's not that hard to understand.



  28. 28

    well thats what serbs do…they say it all so beautifully. but nothing will happen…i am a serbian gay…and we are not safe here..serbs consider us as sick animals..i had a friend who got shot in belgrade because he came out of the closet…welcome to serbia..no wonder noone likes us.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – I think it's a big deal when there's a riot with grenades, arrests, and injuries. And for your information, Faildridge Queefer, polygamy is a CHOICE, NOT like homosexuality. A same sex marriage of two people is still love because you're devoting your 100% to your spouse. In a polygamous marriage, which is ILLEGAL, you're not giving your whole heart to someone. You're splitting the amount of love you give to each wife into smaller equal pie slices, so if you're just as in love with one wife as another, it isn't genuine love because you didn't give ALL of your heart, or the WHOLE pie, to ONE person and nobody else, dumbass.



  30. 30

    Looks like the rightwing everywhere is disgusting not just the bigoted republicans and the tea-baggers in this country.



  31. 31

    Re: Midnight Empress – Get the fuck outta here with your selective attitude about the definition of equal rights. If you think gay marriage should be legal but you don't think that plural marriage should be legal then you're a fucking hypocrite…like you are.



  32. 32

    Re: El loco Norwegian – Wow you are quite the white trash violent ass. Hope people throw grenades at you and your family because they find you offensive because as you say everyone has a right to do that . Right scumbag?



  33. 33

    Eastern europe has lots of these rightwing fascists that are like neo nazis (sort of like our republicans). Western europe is much more advanced and open, I give the government credit for stopping these rightwing thugs and hope most will stay in jail.



  34. 34

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Well I'm dying of laughter because as usual you are a disgusting republican homophobe from a shitty red state with no life.



  35. 35

    Re: knowitall – I'm from California, a blue state full of assholes like yourself. I'm not a homophobe. They don't scare me and I support gay marriage and plural marriage. Any other bright ideas I can shoot down?



  36. 36

    It was not so terrible as the media is exaggerated, but much was expected, and in the end it turned out that these so-called Protestants, a small part of them, or hooligans, using every possible opportunity and similar gatherings in order to attack a political party, destroying Belgrade …. these people are a disgrace for Serbia …. I was glad the parade of pride don well, only sorry that people in Serbia are not more open minded and can not accept gay people as normal but as a "disease". … I live in Belgrade, I'm straight, and I know many people who are gay, and lot's of straight people who absolutely accept homosexuals, but I also know many people who are homophobic and have so much hate,people who would give up their own child just because it's gay … I do not really understand that …



  37. 37

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – A hypocrite is when you say one thing and do the opposite. Supporting gay marriage and opposing polygamy has NOTHING to do with hypocrisy. Research is concluding that there is a gene that determines sexual orientation, but there is no gene that determines whether or not you'll be a polygamist, so like I said before, polygamy is wrong because it's about male-dominance and sexism, which hurts women. Being gay, however, is not a sin because it does no harm to anyone. See the big difference?



  38. 38

    Re: Midnight Empress – Where the fuck did you get the idea that polygamy is sinful? Also, have you ever heard of polyandry? No, of course not because you're an asshole. Go ahead and google the word polyandry…I'll wait.



  39. 39

    Perez, why don't you seriously shut down this site and go and work for a gay magazine. Every third article is about gays, being gay, killing yourself cause you're gay, saying the word gay in the wrong way, showcasing shows that are gay, news that is gay, its honesting getting insufferable and when I go to your site it isn't fun anymore its annoying.



  40. 40

    And that's the difference between muslims and Christians. Christians aren't looking to behead gays for their affliction. Christians tolerate homosexuality but reject the mainstreaming and normalizing of it; i.e. they aren't going to tell you(unless they're a PC, sell out, brown noser who wants to fit in with the world) it's natural, normal or healthy but that it's a sin and like most sin it should be struggled against and rejected.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Honestly, if someone beleives that marriage should be about monogamy then they are not a hypocrite to beleive that gay marriage is OK and polygamy is not. If you are making the argument that ALL lifestyles and kinds of love are OK in a defense of gay marriage, then you would be a hypocrite to then say polygamy is wrong.
    Midnight Empress clearly beleives that monogamy is fundamentally what marriage is about, so she can say she doesn't believe polygamy is right. Also calling her out on omitting polyandry from her argument - which is a much rarer occurence the world over- is a straw man argument.

    Re: highcottonquinn – Where are the muslims? Belagrade is overwhelmingly Orthadox Christian.



  43. 43

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Um, yeah, but as you can see, it's very rare compared to polygamy, but polygamy is still illegal nonetheless. Is "illegal" a word in your vocabulary, Faildridge? Here, let me spell it out for you: I-L-L-E-G-A-L. If you're all for polygamy, you may as well support identity theft and drug dealing, because it's AGAINST THE LAW. Last time I checked, being homosexual doesn't violate the law in America.



  44. 44

    Gay stories is all Perez does now. This has nothing to do with Celebs.



  45. 45

    Re: Midnight Empress – Gay marriage is illegal (for the most part) in the US. Plural marriage is illegal. Neither should be illegal. As Emesa pointed out, you clearly believe that monogamy is fundamental to marriage whether it be straight marriage or gay marriage. Blanket statement, about 1/3 to 1/4 of the world would disagree with you. All that I'm saying is that equal rights for all MUST include plural marriage. Who the fuck are we to say it's sinful or wrong?



  46. 46

    The only reason the government supports it is so Serbia can get into the EU. The gays have every right to be gay, but they dont need to rub it in everybody's faces. Theyre decision to have a gay parade in the middle of Belgrade was like deciding to have a gay parade in the Vatican; not a smart decision.
