Democracy Babes Get a Clubbing in Belarus

Well this ought to make your blood boil!

These young girls had to be clubbed into submission.

These malicious protesters had to be beaten with clubs to the back of the head.

Thousands of Belarusian protesters were prevented from getting to Oktober Square on Saturday so they held a massive rally in a nearby park.

But, later in the day there was a bloody crackdown by the regime.

Robert Mayer has an amazing video from Ukrainian TV

of violence that took place later in the day. After watching that brutal video and reading stories from bloggers following the clubbings and arrests, it is hard to see how the mainstream media puts up headlines like these:

The Guardian said “Belarusian Police Clash With Protesters”

This clash involved a brutal young girl who had to be subdued by at least two of the larger policemen.

Reuters said “Protesters confront police at Belarus rally” in today’s headline.

I believe they are talking about these protesters here.

ABC News said “Belarus Riot Police, Protesters Clash” in their headline.

By “clash” they must be referring to this ferocious older woman trying to get the riot police from killing her older ferocious friends.

CBS, basically said the same thing- “Police, Protesters Clash In Belarus”

These vicious protesters armed with snowballs deserved their police clubbing.
