Re: Free Pussy Riot
It is real for them, I agree. And they knew beforehand what could happen to them. This wasn't an effin' and blindin' session on the Bill Grundy show. The sentence they received is very harsh by Western standards, hence the knickertwist on the part of many luvvies. But this "protest" was calculated to cause the maximum amount of offence and these women achieved that by involving the ROC and using the cathedral as a stage for their protest which seemed to be about opposing the ROC as much as it was about expressing dissatisfaction with Putin.
