Pussy Riot - Make America Great Again

Imagine this. In America, people are just “Fat Pigs,” who “SPEAK ENGLISH ONLY,” and there are “no Muslims,” “no Mexicans”. “No small breasts are allowed.” Is that what you want your world to look like? “What do you want it to be?”

Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot just released a politically-charged video “Make America Great Again,” including footages of “burning and stigmatization” of labels like “OUTSIDER,” “PERVERT” and “FAT PIG” burned into Nadya’s body with a hot poker. She wants to warn people that “words do hurt physically,” and show that “Trump’s words are not just words,” she says. “Those words lead to violence.”

Main focus on the video is Pussy Riot’s view on the dangers of Trump becoming the U.S. President. Picturing America under Trump’s rule, “outsiders” are abused, raped and tortured, and shot dead. It is as dangerous as America can get.

Watch from link above and let Pussy Riot tell the story.
