You’re Under Arrest. Snow Kidding.

While the United States of America is crumbling around us, there are actually even more despicable fascist regimes around the globe. Take Belarus, for example…

The power-mad regime in Belarus has ordered a man to be arrested after claiming a snowman represented an “unauthorised protest”.

Police are seeking a 58-year-old man after he decorated the snowman with the phrase “Long Live Belarus”, a motto popular with protests against the Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko.

Now the man, who has asked for his identity to be withheld, could be jailed if he cannot pay the fine of 1,450 Belarusian rubles – equivalent to £415, or five months’ pension in the local area.

So writing a slogan on a snowman in some diesel-choked hellhole could land you in prison and cost you a ₽1,450 fine? Yeah, that sounds about right. Honestly, that entire region would have likely been more productive if the Germans won the war.
