I kinda wish the Russia lovers would go to Russia. It’s not one of those situations where they should leave our country for criticizing it. That’s freedom and you should question your own nation. No, what I’m talking about are the people who have chosen Russia over Ukraine and keep pimping for Putin.
Just like MAGAts defending Trump, the people for Russia have to lie to be pro-Russia. Donald Trump, who called Putin a “genius” for the invasion, lies for Russia and has often repeated lies first told by Vladimir Putin.
Ted Rall, an American cartoonist/columnist for Russian state media, who was literally fired by a major news outlet for making shit up, is a huge advocate for Putin propaganda. What better way to repair your journalistic reputation after being exposed as a liar than working for Russian state media? Rall, who doesn’t believe Russia interfered in the 2016 election, has even told lies about me for calling him out which is just like a MAGAt defense.
Tucker Carlson, who’s asked “why should I hate Russia?” has repeated Putin’s lies and conspiracy theories. He’s claimed the war is a “border dispute” and repeated Putin’s lies that the United States funded a biological weapons lab in Urkaine.
These people are not just a few scattered examples. Pay a visit to Trump’s Truth Social. Sure, it’s a failing platform that takes weeks to get approved for, and when you do make it in, half your posts mysteriously disappear if they’re critical of Trump or Putin, but it’s Goon Central for Putin apologists blaming Biden and Nato for Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. If you want to hear Putin propaganda, go to Truth Social.
Putin is antiSemitic, homophobic, racist, and a white nationalist who is in power by sham elections. Republican positions on each of these issues are identical to Putin’s which makes me wonder why a self-described leftist like Rall wants to be associated with the ilk of bigoted goons. When you sleep with goons, you become a goon.
In addition to funneling money to Ted Rall and other American “journalists” at Sputnik to lie for Mother Russia, he’s back-channeled cash to the National Rifle Association which is full of Putin lovers. The NRA has organized group trips to Moscow so their white nationalist members can inhale the fascist air of Mother Russia. It should tell you a lot that Putin believes in urestricted freedom for American imbeciles to own child-killing automatic rifles while the stuff is banned in Russia. Giving Money to the NRA, like meddling in an election to make Donald Trump president, is an effort to destroy the United States. And it’s working.
Now Putin is ordering a draft of 135,000 to fight for Russia because his war is not going well. If you live in Russia, the only news you’re probably receiving in that the war is going great. That’s probably the same news you’re hearing from pro-Putin goons in the United States.
If you love Russia so much, then sign up. Go fight Ukraines. And honest, don’t we all expect Donald Trump to be a resident of Russia at some point in the near future? I especially encourage the gun-humping goons who can’t walk into a Dunkin’s without an AR-15 strapped to their ass. These people are just like John Bolton, who’s a huge advocate for war with everybody, but has never served in the military. Do you wanna be a tough? Then go be a tough guy.
