I didn’t even know this guy was still alive, but yeah. Lech Walesa, the 1980s champion of democracy in Poland for this:
Lech Walesa, Poland’s communist-era democracy campaigner, said homosexuals shouldn’t demand more rights and gay legislators should sit “behind a wall” in Parliament, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Said Welesa: “They need to know they are a minority and adjust to smaller things instead of rising to the greatest heights, taking peak time, organizing the biggest provocations designed to spoil others or pick up people from the majority.”
Behind a wall? Perhaps a curtain instead. An iron curtain.
Ugh. The Independent got it exactly right: he just totally shit on his own legacy.
