Pussy Riot Detained, Released, Then Chased in Sochi
RIA Novosti ^ | February 18, 2014 | Alexey Eremenko

Posted on 02/18/2014 11:44:27 AM PST by Navy Patriot

SOCHI, February 18 (Alexey Eremenko, RIA Novosti) – When five masked Pussy Riot activists emerged from a Sochi police precinct, they broke into a song titled “[Russian President Vladimir] Putin Will Teach You to Love the Motherland.”

The show did not attract much attention from the local denizens, but a loud, anxious, trampling crowd of foreign reporters chased them relentlessly as the activists began to scurry away while still singing the song.

An improvised press conference in the middle of the street followed, to the mad honking of blocked traffic. After an encore of the song, the activists sprinted over to a taxi stand where they all were driven away, without removing their masks, by impassive grizzled cabbies.

Madonna just crashed their recent concert in NYC and went onstage with the women of Pussy Riot to discuss Putin’s anti-gay stance....

Am I the only one who wonders if the name of the group somehow doesn’t translate well into English? A group of girls called Pussy Riot? Or is my mind just in the gutter on this one???

It’s their minds — that are in the gutter.

They might get 15 more minutes... as local celebrities once they've been permanently relocated to somewhere in Siberia.

YOUR mind is not in the gutter, you didn't select the agitator's name, and they are, and always have been, playing to the liberal West and the liberal Western Media. Considering that, are they so stupid as to make a translation "mistake"?

I was wondering the same thing, I doubt there are the same multiple meanings to the word in Russian as there are in English, but I do wonder if it is a double entendre in both languages.

Pussy Riot, ignored by Russian civilians, idolized by Western media.

Probably because the protests are too obscene to even show on local TV. They are capital-N Nutty - e.g. "let's protest patriarchal society by having a massive sex-a-thon in a museum". The chick who organized the whole thing got sentenced to a term in the labor camp - and she was 5-months pregnant.

The origin of the word is French. The French call it "le chat", the cat. The English derivation is clear, and it has probably seeped into Russian in some form.

Here’s Breitbart News’ take on the same story:

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/2014/02/18/Pussy-Riot-Arrested-in-Sochi

These feminazi punksters didn’t need to go to prison. All they needed to do was to repent of their anti-Orthodox hatred and blasphemy, and the Church would have asked that they be released.

But they chose the way of publicity, not the way of humility.

May our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ show them—and all of us sinners—the way of humility as we approach the beginning of the Great Fast!!!!

I guess I am the only person who has never understood how or why someone picked le chat for the English meaning. Why not beaver or something?

Amen.

If these agitators had done their protest on the public street, they never would have been arrested in the first place. They violently interrupted an ongoing service within the Church, violating the rights of everyone else.

I guess the chick in prison has been abandoned by her group. In prison she’s started campaigning against brutal and inhumane treatment in the prisons.

Her friends were like “What happened to ya girl? You’re supposed to be supporting important issues like gays and abortion! Why you keep talking about this prison crap?” so her friends have pretty much ditched her.

Please, now that Sandra Fluke has bailed out, OBummer wants the entire three person group to run for Henry Waxman’s seat. Rumor is he has difficulty pronouncing “Boehner” and is intent on reciprocating with a Democratic corollary in the CA-33d district.
