Pussy Riot Punished For Putin Put Down!

- August 19th, 2012

It wouldn’t be surprising if those three members of the Russian, punk rock group, Pussy Riot, were soon pardoned… or at the very least cut a great deal of slack.

The heat is on, and President Vladimir Putin and the questionably righteous, Russian Orthodox Church, are taking a thumping on the world stage.

Vlad The Bad!Slapped with a two-year prison sentence for their “guerilla” performance in a Moscow cathedral, these young women have become martyrs in the war against injustice.

Around the globe, outraged protesters have taken to the streets, echoing the cry of international rock stars (Madonna, McCartney, Sting, etc.) and Amnesty International… “Release, Pussy Riot!”

While their act of invading a church and banging out a tune, calling on the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Prez Putin, might be deemed a tad offensive, (they apparently have a history of rude and crude) it certainly doesn’t justify two-years in the pokey!

According to the judge, the gals were guilty of “hooliganism on grounds of religious hatred”… their actions, “sacrilegious and blasphemous!”

Really? THAT, was the crime? A cynical person might suspect, that had the target of their musical attack NOT been “Czar” Putin, had they instead belted out a rendition of say, ‘Hang on Sloopy’, their authoritarian overlords might have been more lenient.

Pussy Riot

It’s a well known fact that Herr Putin, a former KGB bigwig, has a very high opinion of himself.

His mirror, mirror on the wall, reflects a tough guy, an athletic adventurer… savior of the Russian people! (If you want a giggle, Google the guy)

This would be why he doesn’t let things like elections stand in his way, and why he and his lackeys will continue to stifle criticism.

IF, the Russian people have had enough, and truly want to put Putin in his place, they may want to praise the Pussy pretties… and stop behaving like the group’s moniker.
