Three young Russian women have been sentenced to jail time for twerking in front of a Russian World War II memorial. The dancers were found guilty of hooliganism, the same charge levied against Pussy Riot, after they recorded themselves dancing in a video uploaded to YouTube. The Novorossiysk district court in southern Russia sentenced a 19-year-old…

    Such is life under right wing hero Vladimir Putin

    Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle longingly wished Tuesday that Vladimir Putin or Benjamin Netanyahu could rule the United States, even if just for 48 hours, to get things “done right.”

    Guilfoyle rhapsodized on tough or authoritarian leadership during a discussion about the terrorist group ISIS on Tuesday’s episode of “The Five.” Responding to co-host Greg Gutfeld’s commentary on how President Barack Obama is dealing with ISIS, Guilfoyle said:

    “Can I just make a special request in the magic lamp? Can we get like Netanyahu, or like Putin in for 48 hours, you know, head of the United States?”

      If Hitler’s “final solution” was directed towards Islam and not the Jewish religion..
      And carried out in the exact same way..

      He would be held up as a hero to the Fox “news” host and their audience.

      But…but according to Stephen Cohen and Eric Zuesse and Guifoyle and Stephen Lehnderman, Putin’s better than than megalomaniac Repuplican in blackface Obama!

      I guess they were wrong, then?

    That video was so not worth anyone going to jail over.

    I am disappointed, that video was not much of a twerk. I am offended that the video is a false advertisement. Where was the booty shorts and actual female dancing of the booty????

    All joking aside, this article points out the differences between Russia and the U.S.A. My friend and her lesbian friend had “relations” in day light near the Washington Monument and weren’t arrested and found guilty of “hooliganism”.

    That Russian video is a disgrace to twerking.

      This is twerking: If you have children in the area, please put blind folds on them, protect your memorials (because war heroes from WWII would NOT want sexy ladies shaking their sexy booties for them over their graves…pfft)

        So there is a school where strippers go to learn their trade!

          Correction, twerking ladies. Apparently, they don’t strip.

    Once again, I am compelled to remark that Russia is the world’s shiniest beacon of freedom and human rights, and I can’t imagine a big freedom-fighter like Snowden being happy living anywhere else. Or Lokshin, for that matter.
