Clearly the Canadian case is that of pure petty censorship at the instigation of the dear leader. In Russia we
have the absurd situation where verminous foreign sponsored and terrorist linked misinformation operations have
to be treated with kid gloves and due process because of the optics of suppression of freedom of the press and
This is a disgusting situation and makes me want to vomit. What has gotten into Putin and the rest of the Silovikis who are supposed to be the Vanguards of Russia's statehood? Is it part of the Russian psyche to prostitute their country to their bitter enemies? This is an Abnormal situation and nobody in the Russian patriot camp is doing anything to set things straight once and for all.
You have to be careful about context. Putin came to power when Russia was almost down the toilet bowl drain in 1999.
He had no choice but to project an image of weakness and submission by Russia. He has pulled off this chameleon act
superbly and fooled all of the NATzO west into writing Russia off long enough for it to recover enough GDP and military
strength to no longer play the submission game.
These liberast fringe MSM in Russia are thus a legacy of the 1990s. Getting rid of them was not a priority because they
themselves did a great job of turning off Russians. The NATzO-sponsored liberast media in Russia has utterly failed to
win over any hearts and minds. Instead of engaging in smart propaganda, they have been platforms for idiots who
browbeat Russians and then expect Russians to support their agenda. These clown outfits are an indirect asset for
Putin and the "state run" Russian media uses their drivel very effectively to put them in the box of irrelevance.
Now we are entering another era where bending over for NATzO is no longer needed. But NATzO cannot be allowed
to take some propaganda high road regarding the freedom of thought and press like it did during the Cold War. I am
personally pissed off that these 5th column outfits openly pushing terrorist agendas are allowed to operate. But I
would rather see them sliced apart by a thousand legal cuts than have them shut down in a ham-fisted way. Let
the precious NATzO west engage in such totalitarian tactics.
