Every so often,the Left gets a rude reminder that America is where freedom lives,and not the “oppressive” gulag they believe it to be. The Left,both here and abroad,is finally beginning to feel what it is like to be abandoned by their powerful friends. They are feeling the sting of reality.
The “safety net” supplied by their powerful friends,which once extended around the world,is tearing apart (especially in Russia,their old capital,where Vladimir Putin has shown he doesn’t care about political correctness or a critical media.) A group of self-styled Greenpeace warriors determined “to save the world’s environment” is learning this first-hand.
When the Russian Navy captured them as they attempted to disrupt the operation of a Russian oil rig,these deluded fools probably thought they would be slapped on the wrist,given a few hot meals,and sent home. The joke is on them.
News reports tell of a British journalist (the title ‘journalist’ is supposed to be a shield against prosecution for any crime)who says he now fears “losing years of his life” and “being kept away from his family and friends.”
When he and a group of other “brave warriors for the environment” picked a Russian oil rig to attack,he probably thought they would be gently helped onto a Russian Navy boat and escorted to a plane bound for England. This isn’t what happened.
The “Hero of The People” now spends 23 hours a day in his cell “with nothing but the occasional book and my thoughts.”
Australian Alexandra Harris was another member of the “saviour of the world” oil rig assault team. She too spends 23 hours a day in her cell and is allowed an hour to walk around what she calls “an outdoor chicken pen,” enduring Arctic blizzard-like winds. Nevertheless,what is worse for this deluded halfwit is that now,the poor thing has actually admitted that the harsh treatment she is getting in the real world has (GASP!) caused her to start praying to God for help.
The Russians have accomplished something not possible using a sandwich and a Starbuck’s latte;they got this woman to pray.
