Serves them right

Journos the world over like to repeat Green propaganda. None more so than  John Campbell.

Be it global warming nonsense, wind farm bullshit, (non) melting ice caps, or the (imagined) threat to little baby polar bears – journos are out there lapping it up and repeating the hell out of it.

Today’s gem concerns those global freedom fighters from Greenpeace, who are quickly becoming the new Nelson Mandelas, if you believe the media.

It seems Russian prisons are really not to their liking.

Not only that, would you believe:

Often their cell mates are Russian and unable to communicate with them.

What? Russian people in a Russian prison? Oh, the terrible deprivation!

Maybe they can write a book about their terrible ordeal – in twenty years time when they get out.

    Fuck them. They can rot in a Russian gulag for all I care. I have said it before and I will say it again – What other outcome did they expect from their actions?

    • blokeintakapuna

      a Tsk-Tsking, followed by some friendly hospitality and Vodka, then a return to the Mother Ship as “Hero’s” for getting Greenpeace all that free publicity…
      That’s my guess anyway…

    • Wine Man

      Problem with Greenpeace and the Greens are they all believe their own BS so much so that they are blind to any other reality. When they get treated with Kid gloves by the western world they expect the same from other governments. My only disappointment is they didn’t try this in the gulf…imagine how the Arabs would deal to them!

      • LeftRightWrong

        Every political party or person affiliated or aligned with a party believes their own BS.
        Look at the posts here, according to people here the right wing is the only wing, anything else is wrong regardless of weather the other side may be right or have a point. And the you look at the left leaning blogs and forums, its exactly the same.
        Blind pig headed arrogance isn’t just a left thing.

        • OneTrack

          But the left have turned arrogance into an art form.

        • Sponge

          Utter bollocks. I am always prepared to accept that I might be wrong. If the facts change then so might my opinion.

          Go to the substandard or daily blog and see if any of them would admit to the same.

        • 1951

          Find a copy of Thomas Sowell’s “Intellectuals&Society” to explain the ‘Left’ and it’s place to other political positioning. Then you may appreciate the many varied contributions made here. Some of us tend to become pig-headed, isn’t that better than being completely bereft of one original thought like some?

    • Hazards001

      They expected the Mighty NZ Military Arm and it’s Political Master’s to rattle their swords at the Russian swine and they would crumble…oh…wait…SHIT…Labour killed that plan…oh well…ROT YA BASTARDS!

  • blokeintakapuna

    Be careful of poking and annoying the Bear, because a Bear hug is not overly pleasant – especially if it lasts for 20+ years.

    • Sponge

      Exactly – snivelling pricks.

      • LabTested

        Looks like the Piracy charge have been reduced to Hooliganism which has a maximum penalty of only 7 years (unfortunately).

        • Sponge

          7 would do these whinging pricks a world of good. I hope the russkies don’t have piss weak parole laws though.

          They may find it harder to recruit people to “save the world” if these pirates get a good stretch.

          Cunts the lot of them.

          • LabTested

            Pussy Riot were charged with ‘Premeditated Hooliganism’ & got 2 years. That was just for singing anti Putin songs. 2 of them are still in the Gulag 12 months on.

  • Andy

    This is the same organisation which had the famous lines penned by one of its activists “we know who you are and we know where you live”.

  • Dick Brown

    No sympathy from me sorry; you fuck with the Russians that’s what you get.

    As an aside, I’d love to know how Greenpeace can get away with what their employees get up to with regard to health and safety.

    Individual contracts be damned; there are benchmark standards and as far as I’m aware they’ve pretty much broken every rule in the book.

    • Agent BallSack

      International waters DB they make their own rules

  • Rodger T

    I guess using the time to learn Russian is beyond and beneath them.
    When life hands you lemons make lemonade ,motherfuckers .
    Ha ha.

  • dumbshit

    they should be very careful not to drop the soap

    • GarethsPussy

      In mother Russia, soap drops you!

      • Dick Brown

        get out of here stalker

        • GarethsPussy


          • Dick Brown

            Sorry, thought you were a fellow S.T.A.L.K.E.R. player because that Russian meme you quoted arose from that game and ‘get out of here stalker’ is one of it’s most memorable in-game lines

            Now I have explained it we are both epic fail.

            The only thing that can save us both is this witty explanation.

          • GarethsPussy

            Or a picture like this…


          • M3N78L

            Great game! Played Call of Pripyat?

          • Dick Brown

            YES! They are all fantastic.

            The original will never be beat of course but then it’s number 2 on my all time list after deus ex (the real deus ex, not the abortion version released a few years ago).

  • GarethsPussy

    You’d think the Greenpeace Comrades would be enjoying authoritarian mother Russia?

    Bet they are feeling a right pack of Charlies, huh.

    Oh well, see you in 20 years, Comrades. Bring back some Vodka…..

    • drummerboy

      The USSR is gone. Green peace would have loved that place.

  • drummerboy

    Wonder what the food is like?… they should feed them seal or whale meat haha

  • JeffDaRef

    But…But…I thought socialism resulted in world class prison systems???
    That’s what those nice people in the Labour Party tell us….

    • drummerboy

      sorry, but when people call Russia socialist it annoys me. Russia’s know what the tyranny of Communism/Socialism is like because they lived under it for over 70 years and they still suffer from the damage that it caused. Russia has a 13% flat tax rate, that is not socialism.

      • OhopeBeachBugger

        Russia also has fuck all in the way of state services. That, I believe, is a bit socialist…

      • OhopeBeachBugger

        Russia also has fuck all in the way of state services. That, I believe, is a bit socialist…

  • Phar Lap

    Sooner Lawless Lucy and that excuse for a male Russel Norman a greenie pest, head over there to plead their innocence the better.That would prove the two mentioned supporters were genuine in their endeavours.Perhaps we should start a fund to help Lawless Lucy ,and squeaky little effeminate Norman leave for Russia as soon as possible.

  • tarkwin

    I wonder if they’ve learned how to say ” Yes Mr Bubba it will be a pleasure to shower with you” in Russian yet?

  • cows4me

    At least they will be enjoying that vegan diet. Brother lived in Russia about 15 years ago, apparently they have cabbage cooking down to a fine art. He reckons if he never sees another cabbage again it will be too soon.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    I recommend sending the Fat one to give them company…..

  • philbest

    Yeah, where is our MSM when it comes to people jailed already under totalitarian regimes for genuine humanitarian actions such as protesting for freedom of speech or freedom of religion or human rights….? Massive silence about such people in jail in Russia, China, Iran….

    But when these loony watermelons go and get locked up, suddenly our MSM finds its “conscience”?

  • BJ

    When they have had time to reflect on what is really important in life – family, friends and freedom they might just find ‘the cause’ holds little relevance for themselves anymore.

    My Mum always said never get lead astray by other people who say they are right.
    Always listen to Mum.

      Eat your Brussels Sprouts , Col…

      • Col

        Ok, but just 1.

    • tspoon

      So, did you go blind or not? ( A very important question )

      • Col

        Yep went blind, saw the light, and gave up sex, and started eating carrots.

  • Col

    What’s the word in Russian for oil it is macno, they will hear that many times in the Russian Cell. Macno macno , bit like saying Fuck no.

    • Democ Kot

      they will not anything for lubrication in a russian prison……

      • Col

        oh your such a strong mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn oh

  • Bad__Cat

    Boo fucking Hoo. Why don’t they tell someone who actually gives a fuck.

    The only negative side to this whole event is that only two New Zealand members of Greenpeace were on this mission. Given our experience in all maritime challenges, maybe we can arrange for a larger proportion of Kiwi Greenies to be on the next ship heading to the Arctic. I live in hope.

  • Day Day

    They don’t serve them granola for breakfast. Or vegan cuisine.

  • pukakidon

    We should strike up a deal with Russia, we pay them $25,000.00 per prisoner per year and they look after them for the duration of the sentence. I am pretty sure our crime rate would drop and so would our taxes.

  • Brian of Mt Wellington

    They should consider themselves lucky that they are still breathing being in a country where people can go missing and never beheard of again.

  • john Doe

    Siberia in the summer can be quite beautiful.

  • Steve (North Shore)

    In a Russian Jail and the Russians don’t speak English? That is outrageous, what is the UN doing about this? Protesters have rights.
    New UN program, educate ALL Russians so they can speak English
    First language should be English, then Moari, then Russian – just in case some of the Greenpeace wankers are Moari leftie wankers
