by Valerie Solanas
Saturday Sep 8th, 2012 4:05 AM
Pussy Riot members made a video thanking their supporters, and burned a picture of Vladimar Putin. The video is a little over one and a half minutes long.
Three Pussy Riot members are in prison in Russia for the crime of blasphemy. Members not incarcerated made a support video for them, taking literally the old Industrial Workers of the World slogan, "They're in for us; we're out for them!" The official web-site of Pussy Riot is http://freepussyriot.org The new video is at http://www.nme.com/news/pussy-riot/65962

When I first heard about this small group of women invading a church and saying things inside the church that were offensive to the religious people inside their church, a hate crime in most countries, I thought it was a setup of some kind. It turns out that is exactly what it is. See
Russia’s “Pussy Riot” Stunt Supported by US State Department

“Pussy Riot’s” support campaign is spearheaded by Oksana Chelysheva of the US State Department-funded “Russian-Chechen Friendship Society,” a clearing house for Chechen terrorist propaganda. Along with US State Department-subsidized Alexey Navalny and the West’s media outlets on their side, the hooligan anti-establishment “punk rockers” now on trial in Moscow have a decidedly “establishment” backing."

As the article further states, the Russian-Chechen Friendship Society is funded by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). William Blum, a whistleblower on US imperialism, describes the NED as an overt CIA. See the excerpt from his book, Rogue State, at
http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/CIA/National%20EndowmentDemo.html

As a rule of thumb, it is best not to support whatever US imperialism supports. We also know that when the Russian bear is awake, US imperialism in the Middle East is held in check. Putin is no angel but he is awake. Hopefully, the Russian workingclass will awake again, as they did on November 7, 1917, and get rid of capitalism for once and for all.

Let us be careful and not use this "Our Country Is Dominated By Evil Men" to promote more of the same party politics that never get us anywhere. Let us not use "Our Country Is Dominated By Evil Men" to create an assumption that "if we only elected more women or people of color" that domination by both male and female politicians would be a force for good in the world. Let us remember and wake up to the reality that "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Let us wake up to reality that corruption applies to all HUMAN BEINGS and not just "white men". Let us understand that power in and of it self is not something HUMAN BEINGS deserve. Let us come to the realization that there is no such thing as "power in the wrong hands" or "good hands." Power will destroy everyone and it will destroy it self in the end because power is unsustainable and is a flawed concept. We need to dismantle power by sharing it evenly and the only way is to clear a path to make way for an even plain field and only way to do that is to get in the way of those in charge who force their authority down on all of us from Kindergarten to retirement. We cannot accept it anymore. That will unite every victim of the system.
