Pussy Riot: ‘The slogan ‘Sid Vicious Died for Your Sins’ seems less and less ironic’

Jim Goad:

Since it’s cool to bash Russia now that it’s no longer communist, and it’s A-OK to incite hatred so long as it’s against pale Christians, Pussy Riot has garnered massive support amid ideologically bedraggled Westerners who value indefinable deconstructivist constructs such as “raising awareness and solidarity and getting people involved” and those who’ve been waiting 35 years to see “punk rock [have] a future as a global force for justice and freedom.” (…)

Punk rock, at least in its original manifestations, seemed innately nihilistic and iconoclastic before it morphed and ultimately ossified into a blind puppet of Cultural Marxist platitudes and began propping up everything once deemed profane (heroin addiction, slovenliness, foul language, and, um, “alternative sexuality”) as almost saintly virtues.
