While performing in Russia, pop star Madonna voiced her support for three “performance artists” who are in jail for trashing an Orthodox church building.
“This is not about free speech,” Savage said after praising Putin’s crackdown on these criminals. “Either you have a society of laws, or you have lawlessness.”
“Madonna went to Russia to give a concert,” Savage explained. “The stoners in Russia are no different than the stoners everywhere else,” adding:
You’re allowed to go see an aging grandmother cavorting on the stage.
So while she’s there, Madonna calls for the release of three gangster women in Russia.
I call them gangster women because you won’t believe what they did. The media here made you think they were just punk rockers who were arrested by Putin for being wild and crazy.
But no, that’s not what happened.
They went to the main Russian Orthodox church, stormed the pulpit, performed obscene acts and screamed that the Orthodox Church is too closely tied to Putin.
So Putin had them arrested, and I agree with him 100 percent.
There’s a certain point at which society breaks down unless you control the vermin: the vermin drug addicts, the vermin anarchists and so on. We’ve seen that in our own country.
Russian politicians are not constrained like our petty bureaucrat politicians are.
The deputy prime minister got so mad at Madonna that he said, “Every ex-wh*** tends to lecture everybody with age, especially during world tours and concerts. Either take off the cross or put on your panties.”
These so-called punk rocker performances offended the great majority of the Russian people who belong to the Orthodox Church. Their trial is certainly not about free speech.
Either you have a society of laws, or you have lawlessness.
