Russian Liberals Are a Hoot
Russian Liberals Are a Hoot
Russian liberals love to constantly tell us that we must reform, that we must take on Western standards, that is, until those same said standards infringe on their drive to grab power, elections and will of the people be damned.
Case in point was the new sets of fines, still much smaller than in the West, against destructive and murderous demonstrations. How dare the authorities adopt Western and US specific laws against rock throwing and knife wielding demonstrators? That of the last riots, 11 of the 17 hurt were police, and mostly from stab wounds, that is, attempted murderer, is irrelevant to these "reformers" and freedom "lovers". As long as they have the freedom to do as they want and everyone else be damned, that is the freedom they push.
No different was the act of "protest" by Pussy Riot and their legion of Western sociopaths. The quotes from their Western backers are a riot all unto themselves. For example, during the NYC concerts held in their honour, and backed by such self righteous and often blind to Christian suffering groups as the Marxist leaning Amnesty International, Ellina Graypel, one of the performing singers "How could they put women in jail? They are not criminals, they are artists, just like me, who wanted to express themselves."
Well sweetheart, your country, the USA has some one million women in prison. They wanted to express themselves? Fine. Do it on public land, not in a Church, which is PRIVATE land belonging to the Orthodox Church. You have no more right to perform your act of protest there, without the owner's permission that in a store or some one's apartment.
Or this gem from Musician Frank London. "It looks like the Church is not separate from the State in Russia. The Church is using the State to impose its opinion shut up critics."
How so bright guy? Because they want trespassers who disrupted a Church service, desecrated Church property to be punished? You twits have every right to stand on the street cornor and voice your mindless babble, you do not have a right to use Soviet tactics (yes these were exactly out of the late SU's play book on destroying religion) to disrupt, oppress or push around worshippers, exercising their rights.
Your rights, you stupid twits, end at the border of my rights. We all stay within those borders and we all get along, otherwise there is a price to pay. But how can one blame them when the Moscow Times, itself had this to say on the subject, calling the act of vandalism and hooliganism "Performing an anti-Putin song in a Russian Church". As if these nice, upstanding girls were invited to perform or give their opinions.
Now we come to the NGO law. The rule, straight out of the US textbook, will require any NGO receiving foreign funding and participating in political activities to be registered for exactly what it is: a foreign agent, a term the US has used since prior to WW2. What, afraid the public will find out what your true sources of income are? As I pointed out in this article: (ARTICLE), several years back, most of the major NGOs are US funded and are leading the subversive actions, from civil society to the military. Again, this is no different from what America's elites did to us in the 1910s, leading up to the Marxist revolution and their 70 year rape of Russia.
What does this law require? Truth in advertising, that is what. The NGOs will be forced to display a label on their publications, including web based pubs, that they are a foreign agent, as well as publish a bi-annual report of their finances and activities. Oh, God forbid, transparency, that term the West so loves, until it comes to shining a light on their actions and that of their hired guns and quislings.
