Pussy Riot vs the Riot Squad

The Riot Act

Outlaw Punk Band Pussy Riot gets a police beating in Sochi after interfering with Vladim ir Putin's plans once too often
Outlaw Punk Activist Band Pussy Riot

When you’re a member of Russian activist band Pussy Riot there are many things that you could be doing. For instance you could make a cool million by posing naked for Playboy. They wouldn’t be the first to make it naked. They could have their own reality TV series following their attempts to make it in the American music industry! They could even write their autobiographies blending their personal lives with the story of their political activism. Granted the ladies are a little young for memoirs, but that hasn’t stopped Miley Cyrus (whom I hear is still outraged about her name not having made Microsoft spell check yet!)! However it seems that the gals are more interested in acting like Julian Assange or something. In other words the girls are back in trouble! Let me explain…

Pussy Riot was more riot than pussy recently. It was at the Sochi Olympics. Now if rumors are to be believed this is Russian President Vladimir Putin‘s baby. It’s his chance to show case a world class Russia to the international community by showing everyone how far the country has come since the rough days following the fall of communism. In other words it’s a chance to make a good impression..

Sochi City Sirens: rogue heroes or no goodniks?

Now in life one person’s chance to make a good impression is often another person’s chance to make even more of an impression by spoiling things. That’s where Pussy Riot comes in. Putin is not universally beloved in Russia, and Pussy Riot has become a voice for those who would like him to retire, move on, and maybe crank out some baloney in the form of a political memoirs – as politicians usually due when their day in the sun is over. So the young ladies of PR like to give Mr Putin some help in the form of antagonizing him at every opportunity. Apparently there’s no better opportunity than the Sochi Winter Olympics. So like the Gotham City Sirens, the ladies swung into action (although without eye catching latex super heroine gear, which really might have helped their cause by attracting even more international media attention!).

So how did this recipe for disaster turn out? About how you’d expect only a little bit worse. The powers that be missed the whole political protest angle and cracked down on the outbreak of superdickery by sending in the cops. In this case the cops were the goon squad, and not the friendly funny goon squad with Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan either. This were a pack of ruthless bastards the likes of which Richard M Nixon might’ve sent onto American college campuses in the earlier 70’s to sort out student protesters by giving them a dose of reality!

Now what that means in plain words, and not blog content filler language, is that the ladies got the shit beat out of them. The police moved in, manhandled the band members, clubs and baton got swung, and then the Pussy Riot members were hauled off in a humiliating fashion. There was no defiant smirking to cameras as the were hustled off in handcuffs, but band members were carted off bodies and bones and bra straps into nearby waiting police wagons. They were then roughly loaded on board like so many sacks of potatoes on the way to the vodka distillery. Amazingly there is video of the shocking brutality and here it is – be warned, it’s not pretty!

something you’re not gonna see on Russia Today!

& remember to keep reading Wondertrash where everyday is a pussy riot of awkward protest and cyber vandalism! Well it’s mostly just cyber vandalism.

You don't ahve to be a Pussy Riot memeber to engage in random acts of wondertrash, just get invovled in some cyber vandalism - but bring your own latex cosplay super hero gear
