Putin's Witch Hunt

The Scene Of The Crime
I think it's too bad Pussy Riot didn't try protesting in a Vatican Cathedral. But we all know how priests feel about the "P" word. Pussy Riot was sentenced today.

2 years in a prison colony. They were found guilty of holliganism (are you kidding me?) motivated by religious hatred. They are anything but either of those things. They were criticized by the Russian Orthodox Church as "blasphemous" and "crude hostility towards millions of people" for their anti-Putin punk prayer". Only politically correct prayers allowed people!
Whenever I hear people saying the "B" word in regards to women, I think of fire and a good stake burning. 
"They are in jail because it is Putin's personal revenge," said Alexey Navalny, the opposition's de facto leader. "The verdict was written by Vladimir Putin". Mr. Navalny is a Russian blogger, lawyer and activist who has been repeatedly arrested and jailed protesting the Putin regime. He faces charges that could earn him 10 years in who knows where Russian prison gulag.
This has all come out of a movement where, the Russian people feel that their election was hijacked and Putin remains in power only through his brutal crackdown of any opposition. If only Americans had the same guts during the Bush-Gore election, when the Supreme Court crowned Bush king.
I have to say, these are some pretty tough young women. Maybe they can be kept out of prison, for a longtime with a lot of litigation.
"Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 30, were calmly defiant as a judge handed down the sentence, to cries of "Shame!" inside and outside court."
The world needs more hooligans
Dasvidaniya, to all my Russian  friends who read my blog. The world is watching your brave struggle.

  1. Definitely a cheap shot from Puto, ... I mean Putin. Wouldn't you love to hear Romney comment on this?

  2. Just hearing the words "Pussy Riot" come out of his mouth would be a riot!
