Why Rupert Christiansen is the wrong commentator about gay rights protesters

The veteran British critic click-whored, “[B]ased on the possibly paranoid notion that the two men are as thick as thieves, Gergiev is being systematically harassed and hounded before performances in both New York and London by campaigners who feel that his silence on the gay issue indicates his tacit support for his chum in the Kremlin.”

    When you understand pseudo-democratic governments, you would understand Gergiev’s position. It is like most third-world countries and dictatorships where the economy is controlled and, in large part, ownership and profits of major companies are regulated by the leadership for the benefit of themselves and supporters. For example, Gergiev happens to own a huge slice of the largest chicken meat company in Russia. His income from that is over $16 million each year putting him on the Russian Forbes list of richest men in Russia. Now he does do a lot of concerts and his fees are high but if anyone here thinks he was a prudent investor and won, I have a bridge…
