In a 2007 pro-gun rights video, Navalny presents himself as a “certified nationalist” who wants to exterminate “flies and cockroaches” – while bearded Muslim men appear in cutaways. He whips out a gun and shoots an actor wearing a keffiyeh who tried to “attack” him.

Yeah maybe overt Russian white nationalists shouldn't be revered and their supporters shouldn't be given the right to freedom of expression.

nekandro ,

Oh great, so he's a covert Russian white nationalist who only wants to exterminate Muslims in secret.

Wait...

nekandro ,

People are ignoring the shit show election in Pakistan for... This?

nekandro OP ,

Burn the world down baby

The US is ramping up O&G extraction for North America, Norway is ramping up O&G extraction for Europe, meanwhile OPEC+ is instituting stricter supply limits and China is in the process of peaking fossil fuel consumption half a decade ahead of schedule.

It was the Russians

It wasn't the Russians but they were paid by Russia

It wasn't the Russians but they were brainwashed by Russian propaganda

It wasn't the Russians but it only happened because Russia was doing bad stuff

It wasn't the Russians but it was a rogue actor and not the Ukrainians either

It wasn't the Russians but it was only a small faction in Ukraine

It was the Ukrainians and had no connection with foreign parties

It was the Ukrainians who had grown up or been trained in America, but no further connection

It was the Ukrainians who were brainwashed by American propaganda

It was the Ukrainians who were paid by American private interests

It was the Ukrainians who were paid off by covert forces in the American government

It was the Americans

Just like for Nordstream, I wonder where we will end up on this spectrum...

nekandro ,

Which is why WW2 led to no innovation and why NASA did nothing new, right?

nekandro OP ,

This is the real issue I have with all Chinese reporting: by government policy, they have proportional ethnic representation (and often overrepresent minorities in government in autonomous regions). Yes, it's still technically the CPC, but it's like saying that the BC NDP and federal NDP are the same party with the same interests.

The Threat of All Out War: Yemen Nears the Tipping Point As US Airstrikes Intensify (www.mintpressnews.com)

U.S. and British officials maintain that their attacks target “Houthi” military positions – ammunition stores and missile launch sites, but the reality of the ground tells a different story. Yemeni civilians say they are blind and indiscriminate and often leave civilians maimed or killed. Assuming the U.S. and UK are...

I don't think it's actually the same Van Zandt, to be fair. MBFC guy registered the company in some house in the Midwest IIRC.

nekandro ,

The West takes the idea of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" too far. The West would literally ally itself with the Nazis to fight off the communist Russian threat.

Alexei Navalny was pronounced dead (lenta.ru)

As reported exclusively by russian sources at the moment, he lost consciousness after a walking hour and prison medics were unsuccessful in reanimating him, as per sources in УФСИН (government body regulating prisons and punishment). He was 47 years old at that time. The last time he was heard of he was moved from...

nekandro ,

I love when all my racist fascists unify into a single opposition party. Surely they won't do anything untoward like, say, forcing Reichstag members to vote for the Enabling Act in 1933 to give them "temporary" powers, right?

nekandro ,

Party elders were alarmed by his push for a more nationalist message. Defiantly, he recorded a pro-gun rights video in which he compared people from Russia’s mostly Muslim North Caucasus to “cockroaches” and mimicked shooting one with a pistol.

Racist fuck.

I used to not understand how Hitler was able to rise to power. Now I do. It just requires more people like you.

nekandro OP ,

People severely underestimate the scale of BYD and it shows. Japanese and Korean car manufacturers have visited BYD factories and left in shock.

nekandro ,

Trump pushes the US away from the West. Biden pushes the US away from the rest.

nekandro OP ,

IIRC these are the first proper deaths caused by military intervention in cross strait relations since at least 1979.

I would not be surprised to see China retaliate and retaliate aggressively, particularly since Taiwan's Coast Guard alleges that the incident occured "near Kinmen," which is a staggering 3 kilometers away from mainland China.

nekandro OP ,

Kinmen is about 3km from the nearest populated, road-connected part of China (小嶝岛). The article claims that fishermen were caught within "1 nautical mile," equivalent to 1.852km. You're free to do the math.

Kinmen is notorious for being a KMT stronghold, which might explain why during the last election the government prevented some Kinmen residents from returning to the island to vote. There's been a distinct policy of disenfranchisement from Kinmen by the DPP.

nekandro OP ,

Taiwan claiming an island 3km away from China and hundreds of kilometers from the Taiwanese mainland? Perfectly legitimate.

nekandro OP ,

All I'll say is that you should look at a satellite map of the Xiamen area.

nekandro ,

Is this the part of the story where you're reminded that forced sterilization and forced abortion has also been applied to the Han majority in support of one-child policy? No? Oh.

nekandro ,

Western news is about vibes and clicks, not accurate reporting.

Tank man provided a good photo, but the video that shows him getting dragged away by other protestors doesn't tell the same story.

nekandro ,

Imagine citing Wikipedia lmao

You'd get laughed out of any academic context in a heartbeat

nekandro ,

And the people opposing China are universally tied to the US through either NATO, Five Eyes, or US military occupation (Japan, South Korea).

Are you one of those people who think only white people matter?

nekandro ,

If you're not white you're a tankie.
