Margaretta, you know the whole pussy riot thing was deliberately blown out of proportion and filled the world's media because it was backed by imperialists who wanted to use the incident to cause problems for Putin who was not playing ball in Libya and Syria.

You are doing the work of imperialism by continuing to highlight the whole pussy riot thing. If you must do this, why not stage a "pussy riot" punk prayer in the middle of church services in the cathedral highlighting the systematic abuse rape and cover up by the Irish catholic church, and the cost of their compensation to the tune of 1.5 billion euro to the taxpayer (and the victims themselves) of which only 180 million contribution has been paid to date by the church. Let's see if they bring charges in democratic Ireland for such an action?

Putin is presiding over a state whose police thuggishly deal with investigative journalists, sometimes enable them to be assassinated. Pro-USA foreign policy western newspapers have portrayed pussy riot as martyrs for free speech and artistic expression. To get to the truth that may lurk there somewhere in the middle it would help if somebody with musical and artistic experience would offer an assessment of Pussy Riot's musical and artistic skills. Don't opponents of Putin's ways of ruling Russia have other means of conveying their feelings to the general population of that country?

So if you are against Putin, it make you pro-Imperialist? Hmm.. Maybe you just don't care about women's grievances enough to take them seriously. Sexism and authoritarian rule exist in the world, and pointing to another system of repression does not justify the former.

If I lived in the 1940's I probably would be have ideologically opposed to Stalin. Would that have made me a fascist, or would it have been that case that I had simply become brainwashed by fascist propaganda?

F**k Putin. Pure scum.
