A far-right Russian politician is facing legal problems after ordering two of his aides to 'violently rape' a pregnant Russia Today journalist in front of other reporters at a press conference.

Vladimir Zhironovsky, of the pro-Kremlin Liberal Democratic Party, launched into an animated tirade against RT journalist Stella Dubovitskaya,


Uh huh. Much like the liberal media's effort to re-cast the German National SOCIALIST party as right wing conservatives, their effort to re-cast women-hating rape-obsessed Russian LIBERAL DEMOCRATS is duly noted.

Just in case if you were wondering if there really is liberal bias in the media, I present to you Exhibit "A".

Case rested, libs.

FTFA: Zhirinovsky shouted back,  "What are you doing intervening here, you lesbian? Get out of here.  There are pregnant women at the Maidan [Independence Square in Kiev, scene of the Ukrainian Revolution] and here as well, druggies and what have you, " he continued. "We need healthy people. Pregnant women should not show up at work. Sit at home and look after your child, got that?"Zhirinovsky ended his tirade with "Get out of here, you damned lesbians."

Wow, Even Republicans know not to shout those things at open press conferences where people can shout back. Can't they just do online "radio" shows in Russia and then get picked up for rebroadcast by Right Wing Watch?

I have some faith that most here know political parties are not labeled the same the world over, and the above comments are nothing but flamebait.

I like how he can conflate "pregnant" and "lesbian" without his head exploding from cognitive dissonance.

You can call yourself anything you want, but your policies are what matter.  The Nazis' fetish for authoritarianism & nationalism and complete lack of collective ownership put them in fascist territory.

Likewise, this Russian farkwad's party is also big on law and order and Russia-first nationalism - as well as screaming at women in public and calling them lesbians like it's a bad thing (with a distinct subtext of "get back in the kitchen where you belong").  Doesn't sound very liberal to me.

Yup, Zhirinovsky, and I can't say I'm all that shocked.

(For those a wee bit unfamiliar with Russian politics, Zhirinovsky is basically Comrade Overton Window-vich in that he's pretty much SO far off the metaphorical reservation autonomous oblast that he makes the likes of Pooty-Poot seem almost reasonable in comparison.  Essentially think of him (in US political party terms) as the Constitution-Party-Running-As-Tea-Party-Candidate Screaming Guanopsychotic Loon Calling For Full Establishment Of Dominionist Religious Law Up To And Including Forced Marriages In Cases Of Rape and the likes of Putin et al as their Mitch "I saw a turtle that people unfortunately have elected to Congress rather consistently for the past decade and a half" McConnell and you get the idea.)

After reading the headline I thought, "that politician must be a graduate of the Zhirinovsky school of politics". Then I saw that it was the master himself.

For the youngsters out there, Zhirinovsky first got notoriety about 20 years ago during the early Yeltsin years. He is Russia's Pat Buchanan and Cynthia McKinney rolled into one.

SquiggsIN: If he'd have told them to legitimately rape her then he'd be a Tea Party hero


No, he couldn't do that, because the reporter was already pregnant.  A legitimate rape would shut that whole thing down, and then she would lose her baby.  That would be tantamount to abortion.

That article was mildly amusing if you read it as a guy saying improper things to get a rise out of someone, but then you see the video and his aids actually went over and started to touch her until someone intervened. Kind of like they do this more often than not...

"... confusing Russia for Westeros..."

Immediate reaction:  oooh, this headline is not going to end well at all.  I hate it when I'm that right.

In the US, wouldn't the statement described count as both threat of grievous bodily harm / assault and conspiracy to commit a felony?  Not that even one of our lily-livered politicos would actually be held accountable the way you or I would if we publicly threatened to have someone gang-raped...

He has to have his aides violently rape her, of course, because he is incapable of doing it himself. What with the missing balls and all.

It's not like Snowden had very many choices.  If I remember correctly, there are only about half a dozen countries he could have gone to that wouldn't have immediately sent him back to the U.S., and none of them are known for being nice places to live.
