Don’t Laugh — It’s Giving Putin What He Wants, by Caitlin Johnstone

https://straightline...tlin-johnstone/

 

Russia makes fun of western establishment narratives about it because those narratives are so incredibly easy to make fun of that they are essentially asking for it, and the nerdy way empire loyalists are suddenly crying victim about it is itself more comedy. When Guardian writer Carole Cadwalladr began insinuating that RT covering standard newsworthy people like Julian Assange and Nigel Farage was a conspiracy to “boost” those people for the advancement of Russian agendas instead of a news outlet doing the thing that news reporting is, RT rightly made fun of her for it. Cadwalladr reacted to RT’s mockery with a claim that she was a victim of “attacks”, instead of the recipient of perfectly justified ridicule for circulating an intensely moronic conspiracy theory.

Ah well. People are nuts and we’re hurtling toward a direct confrontationwith a nuclear superpower. Sometimes there’s nothing else to do but laugh. As Wavy Gravy said, “Keep your sense of humor, my friend; if you don’t have a sense of humor it just isn’t funny anymore.”

Our deeply felt national scruples about misidentifying a fake account or inadvertently silencing someone, however briefly, the report says, create a welcoming environment for malign groups who masquerade as Americans or who game algorithms.


"Innocent until proven guilty" is a core American value. I hope we can find ways of combating these threats without compromising it.

Ugh... If you haven't noticed, this principle wasn't working well in recent years.

Roshen.....

Roshen chocolate bars as gift from President Poroshenko; T-shirt reads “Are you GRU agent?” (followed by RT promo “Yes, we are not a gift”  - Russian idiom for something like “hard talk”). Closing scene is reference to famous scene of Soviet agent undercover in Nazi Germany celebrating Red Army day

Soviet Union in 1900, and also post the split? Suggests a not particularly nuanced chart.
