Oh jeez, I know it's bad but I couldn't help laughing at this.

My internal dialogue creator was saying something like,

"Ha ha we will protest you with these pink ski masks!"

"No yoo vownt I beat you with dis wheep."

Actually, it would make a decent music video.

Russian punk group Pussy Riot is attacked by Cossack militia as they try to perform under a sign for the Sochi Olympics.





SOCHI, Russia — Members of the performance-art group Pussy Riot were attacked on a public plaza Wednesday by Cossacks brandishing whips and discharging pepper spray, a day after police picked them up and held them for nearly four hours without charges.

An Associated Press video showed the Cossacks advancing on the five women and one man with whips, knocking them down and striking them. The performers had just been shown gathering quickly at an outdoor plaza in Sochi, about 20 miles from the Olympic Park, taking off coats, putting on their ski masks and preparing to perform when the Cossacks attacked.

Idiots.. What did they think would happen? Oh, yes, this is exactly what they thought would happen, good publicity for their music.

I love that a Cossack added "you sold out to the Americans" .. aint that the truth.

Not sure how anyone can laugh or not give a crap about young women being beaten and whooped by big, grown men.
Pathetic.... I mean how dare they try and fight for a cause and bring awareness to an issue they feel strongly about.

Judging by the OP and second poster, this may as well be in the "jokes & humor" section of ATS.

I don't understand this. Why are they still trying?
Putin is very clear with his vews on homosexuality.
The first time he jailed the whole group.
Did they really expect something else than this?

Gay? Get a visa for another country and live your life to the fullest.
You CAN'T >SNIP< with Vladimir Putin for christ sake.
Still these >SNIP< think they're gonna change something.

Personally i don't judge people by their sexuality.
Just leave me >SNIP< alone and i wont bother you.

Considering they just finished a jail sentence they knew what was coming. Personally I liked it better when they had sex in museums.


On the plus side, her hand banging technique improved greatly once she was pepper sprayed. So it wasn't a total loss.

Political game of stratego. They are nothing more than a nuisance to Putin. But if he were to suicide them he would suffer way too much flak from the international community. So he can beat and jail them but they probably have a pass for a "disappearance."

They would be under the same impression, which allows them to continue to berate Putin in their own way without worrying about the consequences his actual enemies worry about.

Yeah.... I mean why did the blacks try in the south right? That whole civil rights thing... they should have just moved country.

Women shouldn't have joined the Suffrage movement, just kept quiet
Apartheid should have remained, why did one race have to be equal with another?


Sometimes it boggles the mind... the kind of utter garbage some people write and think.
Do you people hear yourselves?

Staggering.

By the way, very sexist statement by you. What you should have said is "how can anyone not give a crap about non-violent protestors being attacked by violent authority figures."

Women are just as capable as men in beating non-violent people.

Honestly Pussy Riot doesn't even try anymore, I mean really they didn't even put slogans on their breasts.
This is all good publicity.

Not really, but I see the level of reasoning and intelligence you want to bring to the discussion so never mind.

Still these lesbos think they're gonna change something.


The 'lesbo' who was pepper sprayed and beaten is a married woman with a young daughter, not that it would make any difference if she were a lesbian... Why don't you do some basic research instead of exposing your ignorance on the issue.

I gave several examples of people struggling to overcome oppression and bigotry and winning.
This issue may not be important to you, but to those people in Russia fighting it, it is life-threatening and life changing.

Just because you are ignorant and lack compassion, does not change the situation they face.

Well that sound a bit judge mental on your part.

Flags, Parades, Galas... you name it.

Is there a hetero Award?
Is there a hetero flag?
Is there a hetero movement?
Is there a hetero Gala?

We got all of these here in Sweden.(exept that they are Gay related)

I'm just adressing the obvious.
The MSM is rockin this question like a new 9/11.

What does any of that have to do with equality under the law in Russia?

You said that people should move country instead of trying to change things from within and fighting for their freedom.
I gave examples where people did fight against intolerance and won.

Now you're talking about galas and parades?


I'm sure you're trolling.

Enjoy the thread.

All i'm trying to say is that all of this is getting out of hand.
Russia is obviusly not the best country to express your rights. Why?
Cuz # like this happens and i don't think it's going to change.
The easy solution for someone who's in the HBTQ industy would be to re-locate.
I'm not saying that this is the right thing to do, just pointing at the easy solution.

Well, the difference there was that this country was deluding itself about it's freedoms. Russia doesn't seem to have those delusions, that I can see. lol
