Homophobic parliamentarian is a hypocrite

In Estonia the member of parliament and tabloid reporter Peeter Võsa shocked viewers of his programme on private TV station Kanal 2 last week with homophobic and racist statements. The tabloid Eesti Ekspress accuses Võsa of hypocrisy: "At the European level, the left-centre party [of which Võsa is a member] belongs to the European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party (ELDR).Their major goals include the fight for equality and human dignity and according to their website the party also backs gay marriages. That's where I smell hypocrisy. Võsa does all he can to belittle people with other sexual orientations. ... But at an international level Võsa acts as if he represents a whole catalogue of values, including the right of gays and lesbians to self-determination and freedom from attacks. One can assume Võsa benefits from his two-facedness. But you can't have your cake and eat it too."
