Counting Coup in Russia

For some time now I've been fascinated by the attitude of our deep thinkers — liberals, neocons, and all too many libertarians — towards Vladimir Putin. In the old USSR days, of course, liberals loved all Soviet leaders, without exception, and made excuses for whatever they did. They needed to "keep order," you see. But now Putin doesn't need to keep order at all, or something, and it's just terrible that he arrests ditzy nihilist sluts who desecrate churches. And neocons, by their anti-Putin attitude, have demonstrated clearly that they never were anti-communists, just anti-Russian. And now that the Russians have shrugged the communists off, the the neocons, who still have a warm spot in their heart for Lev Bronstein, are even more anti-Russian. And libertarians are all over the map. But the sensible faction, my faction, is inclined to support authoritarians like Putin when they're suppressing totalitarians. Much like we prefer the Francos and Pinochets to the communists they suppressed. And make no mistake, the "Pussy Riot" gang is just a remnant of the old Soviet totalitarian ideology. Another member of the realistic faction is Bob Wallace, who posted the following at HIS SITE.

Oh, How Horrible! Leftist Destroyers Smacked Around in Russia!

"The destroyers love disorder" - Amerika



In the U.S. we've got the police murdering innocent men, women and children left and right while ignoring the real problems. In Russia the police smacked around Pussy Riot, some leftist women, who, if they had their way, would destroy Russia and return it to barbarism.

The only thing leftists understand is getting their heads knocked together. It's always been like that. "Free speech"? That's one of the first things leftists try to take away, followed by every other right.

Pussy Riot has been described as holding a "leftist anti-capitalist ideology." In other words, they have no understanding whatsoever of human nature.

This isn't even "a beating." A beating is what the police did to Kelly Thomas, when they beat him to death for 20 minutes.

This is a beating. The video is not.

(I'm not going to show this picture. It's too gross. You can see in in Bob's original post HERE.)

The illustration in this quibcag is Akane slugging Ranma, which happens a lot in Ranma ½ (らんま½,) one of my favorite animes. You can watch it HERE. It's fun.

  1. It's a fake. If those were real Russian cops, that cheap excuse for a protest would be over in about fifteen seconds and the participants would find themselves in a windowless van with floor drains headed for the outskirts of town.

    As for the "music" that stuff would kill the appetite of an Ethiopian at a hot-dog eating contest.

  2. I think you're confusing Russian cops with our piss-poor excuses for American cops.
