Forum Post: Free Pussy Riot

Putin has become a tyrant in today's world. He uses the police, army, intel and state aparatus to crack down on whoever opposes him. Here is a flagrant example of the "russian democracy":

Pussy Riot never laid their finger on anything, and for peacefully protesting against what seems like a never-ending rule of putin they get in jail for 2 years.

Thin edge of the wedge.

There's no way that a few singers who poke fingers at anyone should be incarcerated for more than one night. People need to push this issue to the max, and demand their release in the street outside their prison.

How else could we possibly not support these gallant souls?

Pussy Riot has been an agent of cultural sabotage, probably supported by NATO and/or western NGOs. If you do your research, you'll see they have also have had orgies in grocery stores and spread propaganda in the form of "punk rock" with very little accountability for the consequences of their actions. It seems like they are supporting a Second Bolshevik revolution in Russia. Too bad that won't happen under Putin's watch.

[-] -1 points by NLake72 (510) 1 year ago

Dude, from what little I saw, and I don't know the lyrics, but they didn't look very polished. I gotta say, I expect a little more from my subversive conspiracy musical groups, whether they are playing music or... having orgies (as riethc is asserting...) You ever notice how everyone is having orgies everywhere, but we hardly ever get invited? I mean, sure, once in a while you'll stumble on some fun people, and quickly pack an elevator for an hour or two, and there's the occasional phone booth mash thing that's so popular abroad, and we all know what Chinese fire drills are really all about... But, when does anyone actually call you and say "meet me at the grocery store at 3:00, and bring grapes and your copy of Trotsky, we're having a literary orgy in the vegetable aisle..." Of course, it does sound like a Gene Sharps idea, who has a lot of interesting thoughts concerning non-violent activism. Hey! If there are any oppressed Russians, try reading Dictatorship to Democracy by Gene Sharps, you can download it on .pdf

Dude, I'm cool with the orgies, ok? It's called women's rights to do whatever they fuck they want with their bodies. In otherwords, anyone who thinks they have any business in my bedroom or their uh... supermarket aisle... is totally and completely mistaken about their role, and the role of government, and certainly the role of the church in said government and bedroom. That's the power of non-violent revolution. Nobody gets hurt, everyone gets laid, and the government can go regulate the banks instead of what I do at a party. Which, should probably include a lot more group sex, you know, in the spirit of revolution and all...

[-] 1 points by bestevidence (170) 1 year ago

I don't oppose your right to have group sex in your home or in a rented space. Just not in public places. Others have the right not to watch you.

Leader of the group

Tolokonnikova, 23, who was pregnant when she appeared in a filmed museum orgy, has become the main face of Pussy Riot. "Since childhood I've loved finding myself in extreme situations. I've always lacked unusual things in my life," she said in an interview with Plutser-Sarno published in his blog. In her final statement at the trial last week, she said that Pussy Riot provided her a long-sought creative outlet.

When she took part in the orgy, her child was several days overdue. She said she "wanted to stimulate birth by making love." She gave birth to daughter Gera four days later.

[-] 1 points by fiftyfourforty (1077) from New York, NY 1 year ago

He's been silent over many years in the face of Bloomberg's anti poor people actions and policies, the murder by police of unarmed young people, mass incarceration of non white young people under Bloomberg. Although many of the priesthood have apparently favored the attentions to little boys placed in their trust none have been punished by Dolan nor his predecessor, while they oppose women's right to chose including contraception. Plenty of good reason for OWS to protest.

I don't have a problem with supporting protestors in other countries fighting the same fight, but we have to concentrate on freedom here first.

As you say the whole emphasis seems lopsided with the US government and many "liberals" criticizing other countries for their human rights violations and oppression, while ignoring American violations and oppression. There's something behind the US having the highest incarceration rate of any developed country. There's something behind the warrant-less surveillance. There's something behind killing Americans without due process of law.

Let's focus on our system first.

You seem to live in the 1920's Titus: "if in Germany the nazis are putting jews on concentration camps... well, it can't be helped. After all it's not our business here in the US"

Pardon me, but a human rights problem in China, a problem in Russia is a problem for Everyone fighting for a free world, against INJUSTICE, OPRESSION, TYRANNY. In the US at least you can voice your opinions and you can't be arrested JUST because of your opinion.

titus is correct - if you really want to help get our governments boot off the neck of haiti - or stop trying to kill the revolution in south america. that should be your main focus - it is a simple point and you should grasp it. how about stop your government from killing people around the world before you yell at the russians - they don't care what you think anyway.

[-] -1 points by TitusMoans (2451) from Boulder City, NV 1 year ago

I don't know where or when you live, but you place more emphasis on watching over other nations' problems than solving our own.

Skip the caps, if you want to emphasize, especially buzz words; they make you appear like a propagandist. The Reich is long gone. China has a society, in which most residents approve of the government. I haven't seen a poll that shows approval of Putin in Russia, but I'll bet you the approval ratings for Putin in Russia are the same or higher than the approval ratings for Obama. And the approval of our Congress is at an all-time low.

More or less, though I support the struggle for freedom and justice around the world, as a country, instead of meddling into others' affairs so consistently and constantly, we should try to solve our own problems.

Get it: the argument "don't meddle in my affairs" has been used by dictatorship countries. Russia uses it; Cuba uses it; China uses it and booth arrest and convict to prison human rights activists. Have you ever seen the US saying that? No.

No one meddles into other's affairs; what happens is that countries are using the "my house rule" as an excuse to commit barbarity and opression.

If fighting for freedom and justice is meddling then I'm the first to say, Meddle, Meddle Again and Meddle until tyranny has End.

You got it right boss. Do not be deterred.

We can agitate for Justice all over the world and here at home as well. It is not mutually exclusive. We can't be selfish. We must spread our beliefs of freedom all over the world. We must care about other people no matter where they are from. We should be an example, just as every one every where should strive to be an example. I cannot change the world, but I can change the world in me.

If any of us is oppressed, none of us are free.

People must come to see America as the country that helps the oppressed, the "downtroden , the huddled masses, yearning to breath free"

Destabilizing Russia and trying to bring back the old kleptocracy is not a fight I'm going to support. Putin put the richest Russian oligarch behind bars for good reason- something our elected leaders refuse to emulate- and refuses to release him despite the outcry worldwide by his one percenter comrades worldwide. When that drunken puppet of the kleptocrats Yeltsin sent the tanks to disperse the elected parliament there was no protest here or anywhere.

[-] 3 points by TitusMoans (2451) from Boulder City, NV 1 year ago

Putin's just a handy villain; more xenophobia especially if someone brings up the old Commie ghost. For decades our "intelligence" agencies purposely overstated the Soviet Union's military capabilities, I assume, to keep our military-industrial complex busy pumping out more weapons.

The American media handily criticizes Putin, but leaves our own puppet politicians alone, unscathed behind the shield of the wealthy elite.

When it comes to certain overseas matters Occupy goes State Department.

In the US, you can criticise the US president and you will not be ordered to appear in Court. In Russia, IF you criticize the kremlin man not only you will be forced to appear in Court, but you will face detention and you will be tried with criminal charges, namely "crimes against the state"... In the end, you're convicted of such crime and you have to fulfill a sentence with 2 years of emprisonment. Eventually, your house will be subject to constant raids, I mean "searches" by police forces (with or without warant).

Schmucks are people who live in a country where politicians who don't tow the line are murdered (like Paul Wellstone and Mel Carnahan) and where elections are stolen yet they insist on tutoring the world on the notion of democracy and rule of law.

Aaah. So Russian Democracy is better than US Democracy. That's hilarious.

To each his own.

Good luck on all your good efforts

Right is right, & wrong is wrong. no country is all right or all wrong. Whether we have problems which are worse or not is irrelevant. We should criticize anyone & everyone who does stupid things. And vice versa.

Why the excessive defense of Russia? They can take the criticism, there big boys. They can criticize us on Manning. And please let's not forget that this site criticizes America more than any other country. As it should be. The US is the richest, most powerful country on the planet! We must be criticized most! And are. conversely we must criticize problems everywhere because we have the responsibility of being so important.

BAM!

"Why the excessive defense of Russia? They can take the criticism, there big boys. They can criticize us on Manning."

Excessive? I am watching my countrymen and women get involved telling another country what they ought to be doing when this country is severely fucked up when it comes to democracy, free and fair elections and rule of law. I dare you and OWS to do what Pussy riot did. I really dare you all. Try it. See how it works out.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

OWS is challenging authority just fine Pussy ain't got nothin on us. Russia ain't no better than us. Whatever problem we have we still have the rightto speak up for all oppression. Anywhere.

We should have no fear of the accusation of hypocrite. Just speak your mind. We're allowed. And we are right to criticize the Russian govt. Just as we are right and should criticize the US govt.

It's all good.

I'm allowed to agree that you are on the same page as Rupert Murdoch and are really full of it. So is Sting, Madonna, Sir Paul McCartney and the faceless leaders of Occupy Wall Street. http://tinyurl.com/9kufmav

That by itself should give anyone with two active neurons something to think about. But it won't in most cases.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

"full of it"? "two active neurons"? That's uncalled for We can criticize the American Govt and the Russian govt. It's all good.

No need to get unhinged and start with the personal attacks.

I feel strongly about it. You should know that you, occupy, sir paul and murdoch are pissing me and other people off big time. Nicey nicey talk often isn't seen to be heartfelt. If you can't take that then you should not get into arguments about things people actually care about.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

How about if I get into arguments and then call people out when they can't control themselves, When they can't remain respectful, When they can't keep the conversation to a civil discussion.

How about that?

Is that also ok with you?

[-] 1 points by fiftyfourforty (1077) from New York, NY 1 year ago

Sure, schmuck. But what if it wasn't so what go for it.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

That's not very nice to say. Why can't you treat me with respect. Do you think you are better than me? Were you bullied as a child and come to this site to bully others as revenge. Do you do it because you know no body can beat the shit out of you in a virtual world. Are you a coward?

Are you a child.? What is your major malfunction? Behave. Show some respect to your peers. Stop acting like a spoiled brat.

I'm not sure if the comments on the Russian situation is meant to be ironic or not, but that's OK. I'm glad to see someone speaking up on the mysterious death of Paul Wellstone..you would think the Obama Administration might look into that one....

[-] 1 points by fiftyfourforty (1077) from New York, NY 1 year ago

No there was no irony intended. Not one drop of irony.

lol like the US 2000 election

[-] 2 points by fiftyfourforty (1077) from New York, NY 1 year ago

Yes, a nation that sat on its ass and let the elections of 200 AND 2004 get stolen and didn't rise up angry wants to go and teach Russia about what? Democracy? Read the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Not one mention of "democracy" because the founding fathers were slave owning slave trading wife beating elitists and their conception of an ideal republic holds sway here and now..

Then I expect you'll be at St. Patrick's Cathedral for a similar protest. Don't worry the whole world will be watching...

No, just describing in one word what you have put forth yourself. What's good for the goose ought to be good for the gander. But not for "god's country" right?
