We need more people like these girls and less scared-of-the-boogie -man religious nuts in the world.
Even though opening the eyes of the extreme denial is like yelling at a brick wall, it's always better to show defiance to the bullies and their thumb sucking security blankets.
Freedom or die trying! These girls are incredibly brave, fighting the good fight against unwinnable odds of herded sheep.
There's no arguing that they are rude and abrasive in their methods. But at least they're trying to wake people up, as opposed to all the shuffling zombies afraid to make waves.

And your pathetic show in C.S. Cathedral? wasn't it a PR stunt?!?!

They have no musical talent what so ever, please keep your mouth shut and go do something useful, and be grateful to Mr. Putin.

What a traitors! These mentally ill ladies should have been grateful for their release. Instead they are saying things like 'boycotting Sochi Olympic Games'. Their behaviour can only be described as stupid and shameful.

Put them back in prison.

When are we going to wake up to the reality that nobody is saying that Africa needs diversity? And nobody is saying that Asia needs diversity? They are already 100% diverse. Only White children in White countries are being told that they need diversity. White countries will only be diverse when there are no White people left in them.

Diver sity is a codeword for White genocide, and anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

Tolokonnikova might think about urging Fans to Donate to the Red Cross in Syria and Ignore GreenPeace and PeTA entirely in the Future

Then of course - if Sincere in Your Principles - You could Return to Prison and Work from the Inside as did Mandela

This trash will discover what street justice is now.

in an "authoritarian& quot; state? As opposed to, USA the "free" state? Don't make me laugh. Russia is 10 times free-er than the "land of the free" called USA. I would much rather live in Russia than America when it comes to the justice system. At least Russia will throw me in prison, the press would know about me, ask for my freedom bla bla. In USA if they didn't like me I would probably be taken out in a covert op, my family sent under house arrest in some random country and no one would ever hear from me again.

Russia must be tired of these two, they're released very early and we still hear them bitching. She criticises authoritarianism, then refuses the amnesty offer. Doublethink of the year award, if it exists, goes to her.

The girls are the prostitutes of the western media. Too young and too stupid in order to undrstand in what shameful way the western media are missusing them. They should go back to school or read. Russian literatur and not mastributing by pushing frozen chicken between their legs, ref. Youtube. 10y prison and social work would wash their brain.

In typical 'Westish', dear folks:

> > If this was serious, Putin would be pursuing judicial reform to make the system independent and based in the rule of law, not the benevolence of a single mans whims >>

Di spensing unceremoniously with this half-witted parlance-by-platitut es from On High, the tripe readily translates to:

>> ; If Putin wants to be a 'serious' friend of the West, the Rule of Constitutional Law in Russia shall be destroyed and replaced by the Law of Soros and the Corporate Gangsters, thus transforming the system to something absolutely independent of the Russian people >>

PussyRiot news are the most disgusting news of the year I have read. They are the symbol of disgrace of women.

Very well said, Ancient spirituality was a beautiful melding of body, soul and science. We have destroyed all of that though, and the US is a big reason why. We think we are free, when in actuality, we are shackled to the walls of stupidity and separation. I like punk, but I also respect others views and would never mock their beliefs, its the only way we'll ever grow beyond individualism, which is the worst concept ever.

 

Nussiminen 23.12.2013 20:37

What I fear here is that these vile prostitutes of imperialism could, in fact, be correct -- only being way too shallow and full of themselves to understand the real significance of the subject matter. If anything, the Russian people were behind their Government's impeachment of a bunch of deliberately repulsive provocateurs bankrolled by the West. On this basis, it actually does become somewhat of a 'PR stunt' -- and a most misdirected one at that -- to release the offenders. Their arrogance and ingratitude show this convincingly.

The performance in the church was a PR stunt.
The release from prison was a PR stunt.
The propagation of PR video's was a PR stunt.

Ever ything is a PR stunt. It's all a Pssy Riot stunt.

Spolied brats, they should get another 5 years, as that might cool them down. They are 'SCORNED' women now, bent on revenge, and for what?
Descecrati ng the beliefs people have chosen? Then they blame Putin, a man who stopped was in Syria.

Yes, another 5-7 years in prison will make them see things differently.
