Putin will teach you how to love the motherland

Pussy Riot is at it again. On a trip back to Moscow the band members of this music video decided to stop by Sochi, Russia and produce a video showing off their hooliganism. As a result, twenty people have been arrested and are facing charges of up to ten years in another drab Russian prison. During the creation of this new video a large group of old bearded Cossacks came and beat/whipped the trouble makers, while the cops nearby let it happen. The new video is called "Putin will teach you how to love the motherland" and although it is quite catchy, it also points out the Pussy Rioters views towards the Olympic games.
"Sochi locked down/the Olympics under surveillance/Of guns and crowds of cops," are some of the lines recited throughout the song. These lines may look pretty bad, but because of all the hype up for a terrorist attack on the Olympics this year, I wouldn't blame them for having increased security.
Later after the video was taken, members of the band reported to the press that "The Olympics has turned the police state into a total police state and the authoritarian regime into a totalitarian regime with preventive arrests," and also that "The Olympics has created an environment of sweeping violations of human rights in Russia." Judging from the video, it's pretty easy to see their claims are true and maybe in fact the hooligans aren't such bad trouble makers after all. It might even be possible that they are the good guys and mother Russia is just a little out'a line on this one. All hail Putin, and make sure you think about the grand Feminist movement happening right outside while your watching Michael Phelps compete for his 23rd Olympic medal in the Polar Bear Plunge.
