Pussy Riot, Police State

I think it can be hard for Americans born and bred in the US to imagine what real propaganda and a police state look like so let those of us born and bred in police states tell you: it looks a lot like what that orange piece of shit is trying to do to America right now. Ignorance breeds not only hate but real consequences. Journalism, free media, the right to protest and speak out are all part of the beautiful American way, which is why so many of us emigrated here. My mom and I experienced first hand what life is like living in a totalitarian regime. If you are curious, read Lev Golinkin’s incredible memoir, “A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Creates of Vodak,” which I just read (and LOVED!!!). It reflects the experience of a lot of Russian Jewish refugees who came to the US in the late 70’s and 80’s. Including my whole family. In the meantime, watch Pussy Riot’s new music video for “Police State,” released today. Chloe Savigny makes an appearance as well.
