Russian nationalists warn of the danger of, um, Conchita Wurst

Reacting to the victory of the Austrian gay transvestite Conchita Wurst in the Eurovision contest, the Russian nationalist website Sputnik & Pogrom (charming name) posted this on Twitter:

(Translation: Ukraine, you want into Europe? Conchita is waiting for Ukraine! May 11, either you go to the referendum, or the blue beard comes to you!)

Is anyone else reminded of the Nazi campaign against the “decadent” art and culture of Weimar Germany?

Somehow Israel survived the victory of the transsexual Dana International in the 1998 Eurovision contest.
