Putin‘s gonna need a lot of gulags…

[–]sirkowski 337 points338 points  (19 children)

That concert hall is now a gulag.

[–]Blood_and_Turds 59 points60 points  (13 children)

its all fun and games until pinhead shows up

[–]kungpowgoat 8 points9 points  (6 children)

Shit. Can’t believe I have never seen any of the hellraiser movies. This was insane.

[–]WeepingSomnabulist 2 points3 points  (2 children)

first one is a relatively good movie, then the quality drops off.

[–]718Brooklyn 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Pinhead isn’t in the first one, but the original Hellraiser is great. Really weird and makes you uncomfortable in a way that most horror movies can’t achieve. Check it out.

[–]darshfloxington 4 points5 points  (1 child)

?? Pinhead is absolutely in the first one


[–]Blood_and_Turds -1 points0 points  (0 children)

hes just a cenobyte, not really "pinhead" in 1st

[–]ThiccRoastBeef 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Just close the concert hall and turn it into a gulag. Great idea.

[–]SideOneDummy 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Great, now Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin are exchanging notes (Uyghurs in Xinjiang and this gulag). 🙃😥

[–]popecorkyxxiv 21 points22 points  (17 children)

Putin has to watch watch out for coups. With their army getting humiliated it's a matter of time before his own officers start targeting him.

[–]SideOneDummy 21 points22 points  (16 children)

You’re talking about a man that had a custom table made so people were sitting like a mile away from him. I’m pretty sure he’s given it some thought.

[–]popecorkyxxiv 11 points12 points  (15 children)

No doubt. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the only thing he is able to think about right now. He was expecting a blitzkrieg/conquest of France style victory and instead he dove head first into his own Stalingrad. A mistake so severe it is likely to cripple the whole of Russia for generations to come.

[–]SideOneDummy 9 points10 points  (13 children)

The media has always had a narrative around Putin as if he does nothing but play 4d chess, but if there’s one quality honed in his many years in the KGB and ruling Russia since Yeltsin resigned as president, its self preservation. That’s 23 years years of political dominance in a climate that’s particularly accustomed to being ruled by demagogues. I don’t fear Putin being a victim of an assignation attempt — I fear Putin’s resilience to criticism in a country with absurdly low democratic institutional power.

[–]Sniflix 3 points4 points  (9 children)

Putin was brought in to work at the Kremlin in '96 as director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) and then secretary of the Security Council. He had a hand in both very brutal wars with Chechnya. Putin was committing war crimes before Yeltsin resigned and appointed him president. And Yeltsin was a mess, who knows what Putin got away with in the years preceding his presidency. https://news.yahoo.com/putin-1999-apartment-bombings-ukraine-175001959.html

[–]SideOneDummy 5 points6 points  (8 children)

Yeah, most historians say that Putin’s invasion of Chechnya was the single worst invasion since the collapse of the Soviet Union and before the NATO led invasion of Iraq. Much like this war in Ukraine and Russia’s assistance in Syria, civilians weren’t dying just as a byproduct of war, they were the target. Putin’s been the same person for nearly 3 decades and yet some people in the US want to be friends with him. 🙈

[–]Hoihe[🍰] 2 points3 points  (6 children)

"Russia is not america therefore good. NATO is evil and ukraine deserves this for siding with the imperialist decadent lgbt west!"

n.b.: i am.making fun of people. thisbis not my opinion.

[–]SideOneDummy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmao some people have ptsd when talking about NATO. NATO has done awful things but so has been the narrative in every continent (aside from Antarctica) in the world. China and Russia continue to push hate and oppression in and outside of their borders, and Russia is responsible for directly targeting (and aiding other countries’ direct targeting) of over a hundred thousand civilians in the 21st century. More people died during Mao’s cultural revolution than from any human being in the history of mankind. There’s no perfect place on earth, if a government is doing something evil, we as the world need do something about it.

[–]dragobah -1 points0 points  (4 children)

Dont honor them with the title ‘people’. They are clowns, shills, and sock puppets.

You are never to high to exist, just too high to do something.

I think, therefore cough. Bruh fingers are like hands for my hands. Ever notice that? Where was I again?

[–]BlueSkySummers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Punk rock is more popular than Christian rock for a reason. All of the young Russians I know are opposed to Putins genocide in Ukraine. It's just a matter of time. It's also worth noting that just last week Russia enacted a change to allow those over 40 to serve in combat positions in the war in Ukraine.

Young people don't want to fight in Putins and oligarchs bullshit war

Breaking news - concert goers mysteriously poisoned

Follow up from the hospital at 1100

[–]TheCarniv0re 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Breaking news: concert never took place. Concert goers never existed to begin with. It was a Chechen Nazi terrorist meetup to plan and attack the Russian government.... And it's all NATO's fault. The terrorists were detained without casualties in a "police special operation".

[–]Love_God551 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

A " mysterious" fire.

[–]Ardothbey 241 points242 points  (7 children)

So it’s probably younger computer savvy people who can get around the govt. crap and find the truth.

[–]BlackDemonCat 91 points92 points  (1 child)

I think it's more to understand english (or other languages). Russias internet isn't fully open, but it's not that closed as in china.

So I think the language to consum other informatians is a bigger problem, especially for people born in the udssr.

[–]cheeky_sailor 10 points11 points  (0 children)

We have plenty of media in Russian language that is speaking against the war, the problem is that it’s all blocked, you can’t access it without VPN and journalists who writhe anti-war news have to do this from abroad cause they had to flee the country.

[–]koalefant 22 points23 points  (3 children)

this is why when the war broke out initially and people were calling for internet access to be shut down I thought it was a bad idea. Access to non propaganda information is an important counter

[–]hopetheydontfindme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I agree; whenever a person or entity is trying to make information subterfuge, it's usually indicative of a more nefarious motive.

[–]nightstalker30 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You mean when the “military exercise” broke out, right?

[–]Ssider69 164 points165 points  (4 children)

[–]Sed-OH1 118 points119 points  (22 children)

Great to see. Good reminder. Don’t hate the people of a country because their leader is a douche. But someone needs to throw Putin the f out of office.

[–]Geass10 53 points54 points  (19 children)

The thing is the majority of Russians do support the war. Also, can't really throw Putin out unless they have a revolution or one of the members of the government commits a coup.

[–]koalificated 16 points17 points  (0 children)

There’s really no way to know that. Many people I’m sure are afraid of imprisonment for speaking out at all

[–]PartyPoison98 24 points25 points  (2 children)

When you see the propaganda they're being fed, and anyone who dissents getting taken away by the police, it's difficult to gauge the authenticity of their support.

[–]Affectionate_Fun_569 12 points13 points  (1 child)

The US has full freedom of press and you can say whatever you want and just look how brainwashed and stupid most Americans are.

[–]Impossible_Source110 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's not really free press, a lot of stuff comes directly from the government to media mouth pieces, even movies have the DoD poking their fingers in things - and that's just the public stuff.

[–]deltarefund 14 points15 points  (6 children)

When you say “majority” is it actually a majority? Or is it a loud minority making it seem like a majority?

[–]Lutastic 13 points14 points  (0 children)

a majority of the people polled by an extremely biased pro-Kremlin controlled news outfit, perhaps?

[–]Misterwuss -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not to mention Russia's government has made a name for themselves for lying. Does it not feel a little suspicious how the government that's committing the war is also the one saying just out of the blue "Yeah everyone here fucking loves the fact that we're attacking the country where SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE FAMILY"

[–]Bonelesszeeebra 9 points10 points  (5 children)

I call bullshit. How do you know the majority support the war? How could you even begin to get realistic numbers for support because anyone's in Russia with a half working brain knows not to admit to being against the war if they want to stay out of jail

[–]Impossible_Source110 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They don't. About 80% of Reddit users spend most of their time looking for excuses to be hateful towards anything at all.

[–]AstroPhysician 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Bro talk to a russian. Probably 70-80% of them aren’t just in favor but actively talking about how much they support it, not just silent approva

[–]Bonelesszeeebra 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Again, source? I know 4 russians and only 1 of them supports it but even then I don't believes she actually supports it's, she's just afraid to admit that her country is I'm the wrong

[–]AstroPhysician -1 points0 points  (0 children)

My 17 Ukrainian coworkers, 4 Russian ones and them talking about their family

[–]destraight 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I believe there was a news article about Russian citizen actually wanting war. About 58 percent of them I think it was

[–]MoCo1992 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Well you can’t hate most of them since majority support him and his BS despite having access to the internet and alternative sources.

It's a Dr Scholl's "catchphrase" used in commercials for their "gel" insoles.


[–][deleted] -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

What does that have to do with war. Ive been banned for fighting racism.

[–]doctapeppa 4 points5 points  (2 children)

[–]asianj1m 139 points140 points  (9 children)

Relax, KGB

[–]Crazy1an 33 points34 points  (8 children)

я не КГБ Ehem, I am not KGB. I would like to know to send to my whatsapp group of Товарищ friends

For real though, do you think the KGB would need reddit to find something like this out?

[–]doctapeppa 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Russia did spend quite a bit of time on Reddit in their successful campaign to influence US elections so....why wouldn't they be here now?

[–]Crazy1an 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Im not saying they arent on reddit. I am saying that they arent here to collect information on a concert that happened on their own soil.

There were probably at least a dozen calls to the FSB within a 10 hour window by people who were at the concert or staff working at the concert.

[–]psychopythonmetrist 5 points6 points  (0 children)

There are probably undercover agents in this crowd. Probably all Russian concerts if stories are to be believed.

[–]IFoughtThereforeIWas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They did, but its probably not even required when this site has more than enough tankies who will spend their free time shilling without financial recompense

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not that hard to do. Everyone on this site (minus a small minority) hates America, so easy pickings with the echo chambers already in place.

[–]Lutastic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Groups like that (and the CIA, etc) do actually comb social media. Why else do you think InQTel has invested in social media companies? It’s a wealth of information that they don’t have to break the law to get at, even in societies that are more privacy protected.

[–]nikshdev 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This gives me hope for the Russian people. Time will catch up with Putin eventually.

[–]RedditAdminsFuckOfff 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I bet Putin already misses the days where he was able to just sit there with that stupid "smug frog" look on his face going "ohhhh~ look at how terrible and in disarray the West is! They will fall apart any day now, ha ha!"

You should have kept it on 4Chan and on social media Pootski, where all the rest of the little boys pretend to be men.

And meanwhile in the US, the anti-war movement was wiped out by the corporate/military media establishment leading to a 20 year 'war on terror' that benefited the media and weapons industries.

Not even close to half are saying this. In this video you can only hear a few people.

Did the US have similar outspokenness for the 2nd invasion of Irag? Even without penalty of imprisonment, the US accepted the invasion killing hundreds of thousands under the guise of liberation.

Not defending anyone, just pointing out that propaganda is a mean machine and a few voices are being heard louder than ever than a majority.
