Welcome to Russia: Police choir sings “Get Lucky” at Sochi opening ceremonies

posted at 8:01 pm on February 7, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

A group of men with a lifetime of Eastern European authoritarianism to their names and the epaulettes and mustaches to prove it. Singing Daft Punk. The official name of this group is the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Choir. Ahh, Russia.

The spectacle is so wonderfully weird as to look like a Will Ferrel skit. It’s not ironic(?), but it looks ironic. Ironically. America’s going to love it, as the world did the first time around, when this went viral. Click to watch:

Police choir

What’s the best outcome for Sochi? I’ve been reveling in the widely publicized inconveniences of journalists— no shower curtains, hot water, basic cleanliness—because I’ve got to believe they’re making Vladimir Putin wince at every link. Knocking him down a peg on the world stage is great. Showing how corruption and graft have made Sochi the most expensive (and likely among the least impressive) games in years is a plus. Doing all of that while praying that none of it devolves quite to the point of major terrorist attack is ideal.

Update: I meant to applaud Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev for this pretty badass move.

Alexey Sobolev took part in the slopestyle qualifying on Thursday and as he waited for his scores, he turned the top of his snowboard to camera. The illustration on his board was that of a knife-wielding woman in a black ski mask. It’s the same outfit worn by the feminist rock group Pussy Riot, whose members were jailed after a show an impromptu show in a Moscow cathedral last year…

Russian media asked Sobolev whether his board was meant to be a protest statement and he danced around the question.

“Anything is possible,” he said. “I wasn’t the person who designed the board.”

It may all be a happy accident, which Sobolev seems to be embracing, to his credit. The artist who designed the board says it’s not an homage to Pussy Riot, but “It’s too bad I didn’t offend the Russian government on purpose though.”

I’ve been to Russia. It’s a strange place. Hard to even explain.

Dried fish and vodka.

I was ecen mugged at gunpoint once. In bizarre fashion.

Local residents indeed had no running water. Scant food.

Around $22 got you 40,000 rubles. A bottle of vodka costs 1,000 rubles.

40 bottles of vodka for $20.

The military were selling us their uniforms as soviegners.

There was no meat except a little sausage. No fruit.

It was pathetic.

My mugging…

Young couple. He had a rusty snubnose revolver of some sort. Got about $30 off of me. He felt so bad about ripping me off he had his woman give me a lewinsky. Still at gunpoint.

In a graveyard.

Shook my hand and thanked me.

Yeah, Russian chicks are indeed hot. US chicks are spoiled brats. And the Leftist/Libtard/PC culture here forbids us from stating that or doing anything about it or we’ll get fired and/or put in jail.

Russians, for all their knuckle-dragging dysfunctionalism, are at least no-nonsense. They’re kind of close to US Conservatism in that way. I’ve really liked all the Russians that I’ve known, especially the chicks. Russian Jews are particularly cool because they have both the Russian bad-assery, and the Zionism.

Give me a few hundred Eastern European Zionist Jews and a few million dollars and an unlimited supply of guns & ammo, and I guarantee you that I will make Islam will fall off the map.

NBC’s opening of the Sochi Winter games just showed several frames with a red flag with hammer and sickle and called it a “social experiment” when describing Russia’s rich history.

It’s almost as if this site is just pretending to have the goal of furthering consservative ideals, but in reality gets its marching orders from “JournoList” high command.

weathermen on February 8, 2014 at 12:06 AM

I would be very careful singing the praises of Pussy Riot. It’s great that they’re standing up against violence against homosexuals, but each one of those ladies would feel more at home with Nancy Pelosi or Ruth Bader Ginsberg than Rosa Parks.

And as a person of faith, I’m disturbed that they were disrespectful in the extreme to the Russian Orthodox Church. If they’d put on the same show at St. Patrick’s Cathedral or the mosque in Dearborne, would we be so eager to ignore their anarchy and socialism?

I realize they went to jail for what they did, but does anyone really think that was their intention? Going to jail to make a statement is one thing; going to jail because you were too youthfully naive to realize you would get sent there is something else.

That’s nonsense and your “friend of the site” loses all credibility with me. I have it on good authority that this mess is polling WORSE, in fact much worse, in Democratic internal polls in the Northeast than in the media-sponsored polls, and I have no reason to doubt the same is the case elsewhere.

The elderly hate this piece of legislation. In fact, they are scared as hell of it, and are making their feelings known. And in turn, that is scaring the hell out of the Democratic party, particularly flippers like Arcuri (who has a very high percentage of elderly in his district), and DeFazio (who is a gerontologist, and as such is very much aware of how the elderly feel about this bill).

In fact the left is so ticked off about this that the Working Family Party in NY State is talking about running Les Roberts (the infamous Lancet Iraq Casualty Study clown)against Arcuri in a primary-a suicidal and silly move. And they are not just pretending in order to make it look good, believe me.

This encapsulates everything that HA has become. Reminds me of my apprenticeship as a foreman at the heavily unionized GM so many years ago. First couple of months there was, like me, a recently discharge vet in charge of my department & things moved swiftly.

He left & a career GM employee was put in charge. Then it became “I’m here to tell you we’re going to REALLY crack down”. Much more draconian than the vet ever was.

The instant I started to implement my marching orders old GMI started to back down stating: “We can’t do such and such or the union will do such & such.” Kind of like the HA staff & commenters would say.

I did it anyway & was called 2 days later by Labor Relations to back off. Shortly after I put in my 2 weeks notice.

frank on February 8, 2014 at 5:15 AM

Yet they have more talent and are more entertaining than the crap that we call entertainment here.

As to Pussy Riot’s “impromptu show in a cathedral” it was hardly impromptu. And it is a crime in this country, too. Their sentences may have seemed tough by western standards but I assure you, there will be no more “impromptu shows” in cathedrals in the future.
