Rise like a Wurst: “We are unstoppable”

May 11, 2014

When only quite recently the current Pope declared the sainthood of the homophobe Pope John Paul II the Catholic Church once more emphasized their inhumanity. This of course happened just months after Putin signed his anti-gay law bill.

So while I usually don’t care much about the Eurovision Song Contest this year was different: last December I moved from Berlin/Germany back to Vienna/Austria and was surprised to see what act my country now had sent to compete in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest – at a time when the far right seems to be getting stronger and stronger in this country…

So this blog post is dedicated to all the victims of religious and political homophobia. Remember the Wurst: “We are unstoppable”.

See you at the Regenbogenparade (CSD/Vienna Pride) on June 14, 2014.

Pussy, Riot, Putin: “Virgin Mary, Put Putin Away”

August 17, 2012

Punk-Prayer “Virgin Mary, Put Putin Away”


Virgin Mary, Mother of God, put Putin away
Рut Putin away, put Putin away

(end chorus)

Black robe, golden epaulettes
All parishioners crawl to bow
The phantom of liberty is in heaven
Gay-pride sent to Siberia in chains

The head of the KGB, their chief saint,
Leads protesters to prison under escort
In order not to offend His Holiness
Women must give birth and love

Shit, shit, the Lord’s shit!
Shit, shit, the Lord’s shit!


Virgin Mary, Mother of God, become a feminist
Become a feminist, become a feminist

(end chorus)

The Church’s praise of rotten dictators
The cross-bearer procession of black limousines
A teacher-preacher will meet you at school
Go to class – bring him money!

Patriarch Gundyaev believes in Putin
Bitch, better believe in God instead
The belt of the Virgin can’t replace mass-meetings
Mary, Mother of God, is with us in protest!


Virgin Mary, Mother of God, put Putin away
Рut Putin away, put Putin away

(end chorus)

in German:

Punk-Bittgottesdienst “Mutter Gottes, Jungfrau, vertreibe Putin

Mutter Gottes, Jungfrau, vertreibe Putin
Vertreibe Putin, vertreibe Putin.

Schwarzes Ornat, goldene Schulterklappen
Alle Bittsteller kriechen zur Verbeugung
Das Gespenst der Freiheit im Himmel
Gay-Pride ist in Ketten nach Sibirien geschickt worden

Der Chef des KGB ist ihr oberster Heiliger
Führt die Protestierer bewacht in Haft
Um den Heiligsten nicht zu betrüben
Müssen Frauen gebären und lieben

Göttlicher Dreck, Dreck, Dreck
Göttlicher Dreck, Dreck, Dreck

Mutter Gottes, Jungfrau, werde Feministin
Werde Feministin, werde Feministin

Kirchliches Lob für die verfaulten Führer
Prozession aus schwarzen Limousinen
In die Schule kommt der Pfarrer
Geh zum Unterricht – bring ihm Geld!

Der Patriarch Gundjaj glaubt an Putin
Besser würde der Hund an Gott glauben
Der Gürtel der Jungfrau ersetzt keine Demonstrationen
Die Jungfrau Maria ist bei den Protesten mit uns!

Mutter Gottes, Jungfrau, vertreibe Putin
Vertreibe Putin, vertreibe Putin.
