Hillary Clinton Applauds Hooligans Who Desecrated Cathedral

“Strong and brave young women.”

That’s what former U.S. Secretary of State and potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called the members of Pussy Riot, a Russian anarchist punk band whose members have been convicted in Russian courts of “hooliganism” and inciting religious hatred.

Clinton posed with two members of the band while in New York for the Women in the World Summit.  On Friday, she posted the photo on Twitter, saying,

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina served nearly two years in prison  after their unauthorized performance February 21, 2012, in Moscow’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral of Christ the Savior.  The two were stopped by church security officials and arrested, but three other members of the group escaped.  They were granted amnesty and released from prison on December 23, 2013.

The Pussy Riot protest was in response to Orthodox Church leaders’ support for Vladimir Putin during his election campaign.  The group produced a music video of the performance, titled “Punk Prayer – Mother of God, Chase Putin Away.”

Pussy Riot was organized, in part, due to anger over what they perceived as government policies that discriminate against women, citing legislation that “placed restrictions on legal abortions”.  Members of the musical performance group were also detained this year during the Sochi Winter Olympics.

If these are the “women of the world” whom Clinton respects and admires, there’s not much hope for a renewed sense of the sacred, a respect for religion, or an embrace of pro-life feminist values, should Clinton be elected to the presidency in the future.

There’s also not much hope for a renewed détente between the United States and Russia.

Here, by the way, is raw video footage of the original Moscow Cathedral performance and arrest.

  • There was ever a hope of Hilary Clinton embracing anything other than the extreme hatred of men and tradition represented by left wing feminism? I gave up that hope long ago.

    • Kyle Sexton

      Theodore you have to remember when Clinton was stuffing the cigar into Monica Lewinsky, she is lucky the feminist movement doesn’t have an Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson, saying she isn’t woman enough. You may not know what I’m talking about so here is the link,

    She is not qualified to be elected dog catcher let alone president. What is wrong with this country? I think God has decided we just aren’t worth it anymore.

    • Dave Jones

      @Dave4654:disqus- Read Romans 13:1-7 to see where we stand. Or how about Ezekial 21 “I will deliver you into the hands of brutal men, men skilled in destruction”. This applies to our women leaders as well…

      With over 1 million abortions per year, where do you think God is? He is a Gentleman. He does not go where He is not wanted.

  • DeaconJohnMBresnahan

    Sadly typical of a person who could snarl into a camera and claim: “Who cares?” about some murdered Americans in Ben Ghazi, Libya under her reign at the Dept. of State.

  • irena mangone

    I think there are many who pray The Lord to chase Putin away. Say the Ukrainians for a start granted mrs Clinton needs to look at her actions

  • GregCz

    What a piece of excrement.

  • Hillary Clinton is an asshat.

  • cestusdei

    If they had desecrated a mosque…?

    What a disgrace. A former U.S. Secretary of State celebrating women who call themselves “pussies”. But then, we’re talking Democrat here, right?

  • bluesuede

    Although these women are attempting to pose like innocent ladies, there is much more behind those faces that show a hardness that betrays them at this photo op.

    Why would a politician in high office, who probably has aspirations to the presidency, say that these violating trespassers are voices not to silenced, when Clinton clearly ignores the voices of millions of women who peacefully protest for the rights of women who do not want abortions nor do they want to pay for others’ abortions?

    • DocRock

      When did she attempt to SILENCE protestors in America? I don’t support Hillary, so don’t attack me…but your argument doesn’t make sense…She seems to be talking about freedom of speech.

  • Tens of millions of Christians died or were imprisoned in gulags, but the Godless Pussy Riot seems to think they have enough moral high ground to commit blasphemy and sacrilege on behalf of gays and abortion! Billary needs the young and stupid to vote for her because no one else is fooled.

  • blessed

    Hillary Clinton is just like Obama – faithless, Godless and following the evil trend in this country. I pray she does not get in office. We all need to pray that this evil regime currently in control gets replaced this next election.

  • Ryan

    You shouldn’t repeat their intentionally-obscene name.

      Putin understands: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kKIY8Jskas

      Putin: Can you translate the first word into Russian? Or maybe it would sound too obscene? Yes, I think you wouldn’t do it because it sounds too obscene, even in English.
      RT: I actually thought it was referring to a cat, but I’m getting your point here. Do you think the case was handled wrongly in any way, could some lesson have been learned?
      Putin: I know you understand it perfectly well, you don’t need to pretend you don’t get it. It’s just because these people made everyone say their band’s name too many times. It’s obscene — but forget it.

  • Julie

    I don’t think Hillary fully understood what sacrilege is, not from her background.

  • Razor Maclennan

    Both of the pictured women and their radical group are not a rock band, they play no instruments, but they are a desperate bunch who will do anything for attention. Just Google their real names and you will be shocked about what this group has done in the past.

    Hillary should really do more research… but just more incompetence on her behalf.
    She should stay out of Russia’s business… maybe learn to spell “Reset”.

    Hilarbeaste is a murderer and no friend of women. Hopes she gets buried in the Benghazi scandal amd crawls in some lesbian hole.

  • AugustineThomas

    She looks like the Emperor from Star Wars.

  • Don Schenk

    How big a sin is it to vote Democrat?

  • Wayne Golob

    As an Orthodox Christian, I am outraged that she would laud people who would stoop to such vulgarity. Christ the Saviour is the Main Cathedral of the Moscow Patriarchate. I would warn my Catholic friends that should they do an encore in St. Peter’s Basilica, Ms. Clinton will be first in line singing their praises.

  • TabithaRaised

    She most likely doesn’t know about their nudity in a sacred place. But maybe she does. She should none-the-less. We really need to get the word out about this beyond this date. We need to really publicize this to people who may support Hillary in 2016.

  • Hillary Clinton is the biggest hypocrite in Washington…In her “What Difference Does It Make” mentality she believes that women have the right to show contempt and disrespect toward the Russia Orthodox Church when these immoral women defiled the Russian church during Holy Liturgy… We now know Hillary also disrespects values that religious people hold sacred.

    Hillary showed contempt for Serbia and encouraging her husband to bomb, then she lied to the press and to the American taxpayers that “she and her daughter arrived at the Sarajevo airport under sniper fire,” reveals a woman with no morals, a woman who will lie and distort the truth and a woman consumed by her own political agenda.

    Keep in mind something about the Clintons. He turned the White House into a brothel, he was impeached and he was receiving a blowjob from Monica while on the telephone talking to Hillary who was demanding that he bomb Serbia. That sort of sums up what we can expect out of another Clinton administration. Screw or get screwed…Will Hillary also exhibit the same sexual proclivities toward the young, attractive female staff at the White House?

    “What Difference Does it Make?”…it makes a great deal of difference to those of us who maintain our faith and practice it hoping that morons like these two Russian
    whores and Hillary Clinton will not erode our values, trample on our religion rights
    or desecrate our churches and synagogues when it becomes politically expedient.
