The new Russophobia

The bellicose Conservative PM of Canada practices it. All the larger political parties in Parliament practice it. The Master, that is, the US Empire, practices it.

 

What is the new Russophobia? What is its purpose? Who does it serve? Is there any real merit to this new Cold War 2? Did the old Cold War really end?

The Donetsk National Republic lives!

A great turning point has been reached. The puppet fascist regime in Kiev is rapidly falling apart, the rats are leaving the sinking ship (perhaps using their Israeli passports to flee with!) , their German backers have pulled the rug out from underneath them, and the state terrorism in the east has been firmly rebuffed.

The following press conference is worth watching in its entirety. The two key speakers are: Alexander V. Zakharchenko, Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Donetsk National Republic, and Vladimir Kononov, Defense Minister of DNR.

Formation of a State: a new power emerges. Let freedom reign!

Jean-Marie Le Pen does it again!

His daughter Marine has been working hard on giving the fascist Front national a veneer of respectability.

But count on dear old Dad to crack his usual unfunny racist jokes. To pledges by performers such as Yannick Noah (the former tennis star) and Patrick Bruel not to perform in France if the FN should come first in the polls, after something I didn't get about calling Noah a pig, he added "on en fera une fournée", (we'll make them an oven batch). Noah is Black. Bruel is Jewish.
