The US Department of State posted a Tweet that makes one wonder if they are A) being sarcastic, B) trolling everyone, C) oblivious, or D) all of the above.

The Tweet is in reference to the arrest of protesters at an unsanctioned rally in Moscow. Some 8,000 people protested the alleged corruption of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, which had been reported weeks earlier by opposition activist Aleksey Navalny.

Around 500 protesters, including Navalny, were arrested at the rally on Sunday, reports RT.

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to point out the hypocrisy.

By the way, the photo at the top of this article is of former cop John Pike pepper spraying peaceful Occupy protesters who were obviously not a threat to anyone.
