Ahmadinejad: We Don't Have Gays in Iran

(image via d2g)

Batshit proxy warrior and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad skirted the question of the Holocaust at today's debate at Columbia. Not funny. He also claims that there are no gays in persia. Funny. From New York Magazine's liveblogging:

"2:50 p.m.: John Coatsworth is sort of mind-boggled that Ahmadinejad insists upon more "research" onto the Holocaust. Ahmadinejad is mind-boggled right back. Ooh, someone asked the gay question. Why do they have draconian laws against homosexual behavior? This is the first question that actually gives him pause. After a few moments, he starts talking about how women have a prominent role in Iranian society. Obviously. Oh, and then illegal drug trafficking. Huh.

"2:52 p.m.: Best moment by far: after Coatsworth asks the gay question again, because it went unanswered. Ahmadinejad says, 'In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country.' There is laugher and booing. He looks a little sheepish, but continues on 'We don't have homosexuals. In Iran we do not have this phenomenon, I don't know who told you that we have it.'"

Like in prison?
