Soooo I have this new theme on my blog called “Things To Read” that you guys could check out. Today I started out reading about the annoying Turkey situation and for some bizarre reason ended up reading about Pussy Riot. A “group” I had heard about but never really paid much attention to.
It turns out that some people in Russia actually believes that “Pussy Riot” were “western-propaganda” backed by the BBC and other western media. Which is probably one of the most amusing conspiracy theories I’ve ever heard. For anyone to think that “Pussy Riot’s” behaviour is representative of “western” behaviour is absolutely absurd. The way they behave is in accordance with “radical” people all over the globe, such as the “anti-austerity” protesters who vandalised the “Cereal Killer” cafe down in London. The fact that the Russian girls were given so much press exposure in the Western media is probably due to Western media’s love of anything that is “anti-authoritarian” and especially “anti-christian”. Russian conspiracy theories have to keep in mind that both Asange & Snowden are considered heroes by the western media, besides the conservative branch who brands them as terrorists, so anti-Putin, anti-authority, pro-feminist, pro-abortion, Pussy Riot is of course something that makes a good story.
I have to admit that they make for a good laugh to be fair and if they had not been arrested it is probable that they would never really have made global news, but been ignored, which is normally the case which such groups. People forget them easily, but when you start imprisoning people for blasphemous, hooligan behaviour, you actually make their point by doing so. In my opinion I think their punishment was too severe.
Also an interesting thing to note is the dubious background of these Pussy Riot protesters. They might have some points about “freedom of speech” being violated, but I don’t really think that they will gain much support from their fellow country men and if you see their “chicken-stunt” or “orgy-in-the-museum-stunt” it is hard to take these chicks seriously.

In more relevant news, Russia asked the UK to help them with the black box for their aircraft that was shot down by Turkey. But the UK government said no to this as they do not wish to potentially incriminate another NATO country. The UK and Russia agreed to work together on the Syria problem though. UK and Russia together against Islamic State, not together when it comes to Erdogan.

Did a Chinese worker really send out a SOS in a Primark sock? I don’t think it can be dismissed entirely as a hoax. Why should we believe Primark? If sweat shops where people are abused provide socks to Primark, isn’t it more natural to believe that the company would be more interested in saving face rather than to admit the truth? What are they suggesting really? That it is sabotage from another company? And why would we trust the Chinese to investigate this anyway? If it is true, it is highly likely that the man has been neutralised. Which in a less politically correct way means, disposed of. SOS from the invisible hands of China
