Pussy Riot protests

From Echo Moskvy:

Pussy Riot nominated for “Person of the Year” in the American publication Time Magazine

There are over thirty nominees in all, including: the presidents of the USA and Egypt, and the Prime Minister of Israel.

In other years, Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” has been Mark Zuckerburg, Ben Bernanke and Vladimir Putin.

Comments from Echo Moskvy:

fedya_52:

Let them award it to them and be ashamed.

anat963:

It’s a good group of non-humans

vsmol:

Putin first, then “PR” – there’s something in this.

[Note: Putin was Time's Person of the Year in 2007]

evgeny_biolog:

Pussy Riot nominated for “Person of the Year”

In my opinion, they need to be nominated for “Women of Two Years

garry__236:

Are Time not ashamed of putting the name of this “group” on their front page? Does politics outweigh morality here?
Why not put up a picture of doctors saving critical patients while risking their own health? Are there so few decent people left on the earth that there’s only politicians and Pussy? Or have Time done as they’ve been told? Who in the US is promoting Pussy? Who benefits from this?

“Or have Time done as they’ve been told?”

This isn’t Channel 1 or NTV. Whoever they want to award, they will – the Kremlin can’t get through to them.

[Note: this commenter is referring to the widely held belief that the Kremlin has editorial control of the mass media in Russia]

terpigorev: (also responding to garry__236)

“Who benefits from this?”

That’s the motto of Putinist-Communism. Primitive savages. They are ignorant of the fact that helping people is valuable in and of itself. That it promotes frankness and courage of the mind is twice as valuable.

dosenoffner:

Putin is going to go to jail personally to present them with their award.

adashin: (responding to above)

Putin is going to jail personally
There, fixed that for you.

anat963:

Everyone knows that Americans are stupid.

makarmarkovich: (responding to above)

Just as we all know that they are sophisticated.

terpigorev: (also responding to anat963)

“Everyone knows that Americans are stupid.”
The “stupid Americans” have a saying about that: “If you’re clever, then why aren’t you rich?” It’s as though they thought it up for Russia.

    i got sick of this group already, i wonder why didnt the court just give them the initial 7 years

    • lonetrey / Dan

      Rather unfair, don’t you think?

      • wacky

        well 7 years will teach this kind of retards a lesson and i think they will get their remittance after all.
        as far as i concern these people have nothing new or special or distinguishable view or demand from the general anti putin groups, they just crazier and more hysteric.
        i remember watching one of them masturbating with a frozen chicken in a supermarket then after that she put the chicken back and a customer might have bought it which is very disgusting

    Just shows how much thought Time magazine put into this list. The President of Egypt passed an edict which makes Presidential decisions immune from judicial review. People have started calling him Egypt’s next Pharaoh.

      Agreed. Look at all the examples in fact.The prime minister of Israel, the presidents of the USA and Egypt. Tyrants and warmongers. Mark Zuckerburg. Founded facebook as a spin-off of a perverse website. Not the worst person in the world but really? And Ben Bernanke. The chief economist in a country dangerously close to economic collapse.
      Time doesn’t have a clue.

  • linette lee

    maybe they will win. :)
