Oh now THIS is going to be GOOD!

I wonder how many of Putin's 50k personal civilian shocktroops will be in the audience.

How many will be underage kids specifically seeded into the audience to provide the necessary context to arrest him?

How many of his private thugs will be masquerading as "neo-nazis" to cause violence that "needs to be suppressed" and spun in the media as somehow the fault of Sir Elton's, and that of "corrupting Western influences"?

How many of the attendees will be photographed, cataloged and later harassed as enemies of the Rodina, eh?

So people who assault, persecute, and hate other human beings is what you define as "decent?" But then again, you bigots aren't known for a high intelligence level.

When asked what he thought of Western civilization, Gandhi replied, "I think it would be a good idea."

One wonders what he would reply if asked about Russian civilization.

How could Elton John be possibly gay? In 1984 he married a woman, Renate Blauel. The heterosexuel marriage lasted three years.

He's currently married to a man. Please don't insult Elton by calling him straight.

Frankly, Lady Gaga has been a far more vocal supporter of the gay community than Sir Elton John. In the seventies, he was widely known as "bisexual," since being gay could not be admitted. He even married a beard, despite wide-spread knowledge that he was actually gay.

More recently, he said he had no intention of marrying, claiming that civil partnerships were as good as gay people deserved. Only after marriage equality had been won by others did John decide to take advantage of the efforts of others.

I doubt very much he will run afoul of Russia's anti-propaganda laws, unless intentionally provoked. Lady Gaga has bigger balls.
