8/20 Julia Ioffe: Russia’s Attack On Gay Rights

August 20, 2013

The New Republic’s Julia Ioffe explained: Russia’s new anti Gay laws, why reactionary politics are succeeding in Russia right now, Putin’s extreme social politics, why homophobia is seen as protecting Russian identity, how the international community should respond and why Russia is protecting Snowden.

On The Better Half: Ted Cruz renounces the best part of himself, Maine’s Governor says Obama hates white people, fast food workers call for a day of national strikes, UK authorities destroy computer files at the Guardian’s office, Jeffrey Toobin makes an illogical argument about Edward Snowden and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
