The West loves to point out our endless "primitiveness" and "intolerances". They make an art form of nit picking of our backwardness, all the while painting themselves as the angles of all things humane and tolerant. Unfortunately for the West, the truth plays out always and it is rarely as the West would like it to appear.
Two recent cases in point: Pussy Riot and Femin.
We are all to familiar with Pussy Riot as a case, though the West may have miscalculated on that one, as usual. The assault upon the Church by militant and desperate to stay real net atheism has shown how deep the roots of the Faith and Church now run. The population as a whole came to defense of the agency of God, the preserver of our culture and tradition.
But what of the Europeans? When a similar group hit a Catholic cathedral in Germany: instant arrest and up to two years in prison. Must have come as quite an embarrassment to the Iron Chancellor, who had just criticized President Putin on the same thing, almost as much of an embarrassment as the opening of her Communist agitprop past.
Than there was the Finnish case, where the defendants, aiming to spill urine on the alter of an Orthodox cathedral, never even made it to the church before arrest and facing up to 3 years.
And now as if on queue we have Femin rearing it's pretty breasts and empty heads.
Ever since committing sacrilege against the memory of thousands murdered by Cheka and the NKVD in Kiev, the head of Femin and and the center of their operations has moved to Europe. So now it's our moral "betters" who must deal with them. And the response?
From being pepper sprayed and beaten by angry Parisian conservative crowds and arrested by the police to being beaten and arrested by the German polizie, the poor dimwitted breastikles are facing up to 4 years in prison in France to up to 10 years in Germany for insulting the Iron Chancellor and an international guest (in this case Putin).
So where is that famed Western tolerance? Thought so.
