This photo came across Twitter today, thanks to Jonah Goldberg. It’s from the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Sochi, Russia.


The best thing this could be is an acknowledgement that Communism is a major part of Russia’s history. That’s still bad, of course, unless it’s accompanied with facts about the old USSR’s brutality (not likely). It could also be a hint at where Putin wants to take Russia again.

Update: But wait, there’s more.


Update: And more. Look who’s applauding. (See the following update.)

Update: The third photo is a fake. My apologies.
