Communists and Their Lack of Humor

Putin Painting

Russian artist Konstantin Altunin painted a brilliant painting where he depicted Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in women’s undergarments.

What follows should not come as a surprise to anyone – as these guys do not take criticism lightly.

Sense of humor? They don’t have any.

Police raided an exhibition in the northwestern city of Saint Petersburg on August 27, 2013, and confiscated works, including the one by Altunin. The police’s justification for their illogical behavior was “'We don't like it.”

Altunin must be someone who is fully aware of the dire consequences that are triggered when you anger officials of a communist government. So, he fled to France and is applying for asylum.

I think that someone should commission Altunin to paint an art piece depicting a similar relationship between Brother Fidel and Sister Raulita.

    Putin probably has a small penis or is sexually dysfunctional. He tries way too hard to look "macho," in ways quite unseemly for a head of state (not to mention cheesy), which smacks of insecurity. In any case, Russians are dysfunctional and always have been. I wrote them off as defective goods ages ago.
