Celebrity bizarro

By From page A4 | August 13, 2014

Japanese-taught martial arts expert Steven Seagal’s biggest role on the silver screen was the 1992 movie, “Under Siege,” in which he played a Navy Seal counterterrorism expert. His acting career went into decline from there.

Now he has really entered celebrity Purgatory. Seagal apparently has a blues band and was reported by Russian news to be entertaining in Crimea, which Russian President Vladimir Putin snatched from Ukraine and like Stalin purged the Tatars from the peninsula.

Seagal’s concert was sponsored by a motorcycle gang of Russian nationalists. This is celebrity bizarro.

So, Seagal, who seems to count Putin as a friend, has now taken up with Satan, who is organizing a rebellion to take control of Heaven. “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven,” is the famous line from John Milton’s Paradise Lost. We mark that as Putin’s secret slogan.

While Seagal was waving a Putin T-shirt to the crowd in Sevastopol, Putin’s proxies were holding out in Donetsk, where they have stolen cars and summarily executed or imprisoned local residents. The city of several million is without power and water and is being damaged by artillery fire as the Ukrainian Army surrounds the city and targets the Russian-led and financed rebels.

As far as we’re concerned Steven Seagal can go entertain the other traitor, Edward Snowden, in Moscow. The two of them can just stay permanently exiled and enjoy Putinocracy and Seagal can sing the Rolling Stones song, “Sympathy for the Devil.”
