New Pussy Riot Video Is A Big “F You” To Putin And Olympics

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 11.00.28 AMBelow is the new protest anthem by Russian punk activists Pussy Riot titled Putin Will Teach You To Love The Motherland, filmed in Sochi and outspokenly anti-Putin, anti-Olympics and pro-gay.

You’ve got to hand it to them for having the balls to stand up and scream their beliefs in the face of the often brutal authoritative Russian government. Just this week they were arrested on bunk charges as a way of interfering with the song’s release, and it was only a few months ago that three members were released from prison after serving seventeen months in prison.

The video features lots of Olympic thrashing and condemns among other things the persecution of anti-Putin protestors, the jailing of anti-Olympics environmental activist Yevgeny Vitishko and Russia’s rampant homophobia. There’s also footage of Nadya Tolokonnikova, Masha Alyokhina and others being mercilessly beaten and whipped by Sochi’s conservative, religious Cossack militia.

The English translation of the lyrics reads:

$50 billion and a rainbow ray
Rodnina and Kabayeva will pass you the torch
They’ll teach you to submit and cry in the camps
Fireworks for the bosses. Hail, Duce!

Sochi is blocked, Olympus is under surveillance
Special forces, weapons, crowds of cops
FSB – argument, Interior Ministry – Argument
On [state-owned] Channel 1 - applause.

Putin will teach you to love the Motherland.

In Russia, the spring can come suddenly
Greetings to the Messiah in the form of a volley from
Aurora, the prosecutor is determined to be rude
He needs resistance, not pretty eyes

An bird cage for protest, vodka, nesting doll
Jail for the Bolotnaya [activists], drinks, caviar
The Constitution is in a noose, [environmental activist] Vitishko is in jail
Stability, food packets, fence, watch tower

Putin will teach you to love the Motherland

They will turn off Dozhd‘s broadcast
The gay parade has been sent to the outhouse
A two-point bathroom is the priority
The verdict for Russia is jail for six years

Putin will teach you to love the Motherland

Motherland

      NBC will never show it or talk about it. And these poor women will probably soon have an “Accident” while in a car, or accidentally fall out a window. Putin isn’t going to let them hang around. They should get out of Russia ASAP.

      Meanwhile, while some very brave Russians are putting their lives and freedom on the line, U.S. athletes are just fine and dandy with collaborating with the regime for personal gain, as is NBC.

      I love them. I especially loved witnessing their bravery as they got horsewhipped, thrown to the ground and beaten by the thuggish Cossack creeps.

      These women, Russian LGBTs and dissidents, and anyone standing up to the horrible hom0phobic laws in Russia deserve our support.
