"Russian President Vladimir Putin played nice with his own citizens in front of the world in the months leading up to the Olympics. In December,he freed famous political prisoners like Mikhail Khodorkovsky and members of Pussy Riot and Greenpeace.
The closing ceremony in Sochi was Sunday. The very next day, Moscow police detained more than 200 activists for protesting against Putin, including those same members of Pussy Riot and well-known opposition leader Alexei Navalny."
Yet Obama is supportive of Putin.
Is it any wonder why half of the Ukrainians want nothing to do with the rule of Russia and Putin?
The right to protest one's government and to have free speech doesn't exist in Russia. Nor does it exist with Liberals (if you dare say sodomy is a sin or refuse to participate in services for a sodomite union, you not only get bullied but also get hauled into court. If you say something offensive on the NFL, you get penalized too.
Ah free speech.
But hey, Communism is the Liberal's utopia.
Until their own followers find out that even their rights are taken away.
Another example: no free speech:
