May Day: Russia stages first Red Square May Day parade since Soviet days

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia staged a huge May Day parade on Moscow's Red Square for the first time since the Soviet era on Thursday, with workers holding banners proclaiming support for President Vladimir Putin after the seizure of territory from neighboring Ukraine.

Thousands of trade unionists marched with Russian flags and flags of Putin's ruling United Russia party onto the giant square beneath the Kremlin walls, past the red granite mausoleum of Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin.

Mayday! Mayday!

You know something's a bit queer when Russia won't let gay people have a small parade, but a giant parade for communism in the name of Lenin and Stalin is okay.

What the hell is going on in Russia? Has anyone else noticed how Vladimir Putin is using the same kind of anti-Jewish rhetoric that Hitler used to spew to the dumb masses of people eager to blame their own problems on a specific target?

For God's sake, why does Russia want to go back to a past that didn't work and failed miserably?

It's like the West said, "Here is a recipe for disaster," and Russia said, "Great!" Millions of people dead and one massive disaster after another, and Russia wants to go back to that?

Why? Why not say goodbye to the past forever and move on to the future?

You really have no idea what

You really have no idea what you are talking about. For example, Putin has never uttered any anti-Jewish statements. Its not "anti Semitic" to put Jews in jail who just happen to be thieves. Stop pretending that Jews never do wrong.

I'm not pretending that Jews

I'm not pretending that Jews are people too. But according to Putin, gay people don't deserve the same rights as everyone else because of who they're attracted to.

I have a very good idea about what I'm talking about, and there is a reason why people are trying to get out of Russia.

What would you rather have...a country full of people that want to get out of it, or a country that has a waiting line to get in?

Anyone here at the DP want to move to Russia right now?
