Ukrainians blame ordinary Russians.

The thread is interesting. Here's one of the replies.

It seems that many Russians outside of Russia are still supportive of this.

Russians Deporting Mariupol Residents To Camps In Russia.

Invading Russian troops have been deporting Ukrainians to Russia by force, Mariupol Mayor Vadym Boychenko has said in a statement.

The invaders illegally removed people from the city's Left Bank district and shelters in the building of the city's sports club, where more than a thousand people (mostly women and children) had been hiding from the constant bombing.

It is known that the captured Mariupol residents were taken to filtration camps, where the invaders checked people's phones and documents.  After the inspection, some Mariupol residents were redirected to remote cities in Russia, the fate of others remains unknown.


More crimes against humanity.

Battle of Techno House. Part of the 'Denazifying' of Kherson (funny).

If anyone can tell me how to post the full picture from Twitter I'd appreciate it.

For that matter, why should we be upset about Putin interfering in our elections?

It's not like we haven't interfered plenty in the politics of other countries.

It feels like a lot of people on this thread should be okay with it.

"I consider it completely unimportant who in the Party will vote, or how. But what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes, and how.” Joseph Stalin, 1923 (as quoted in “Oxford Essential Quotations, 2017)

Apparently from a memoir by Stalin's personal secretary.

Local mother/son antivaxxers die within minutes of each other.

Syracuse mother and adult son with Covid-19 die minutes apart at Crouse
https://www.syracuse.com/coronavirus/2021/12/syracuse-mother-and-adult-son-with-covid-19-die-minutes-apart-at-crouse-hospital.html?outputType=amp

Syracuse, N.Y. — A 64-year-old woman and her 30-year-old son - who both had Covid-19 - died a few minutes apart this week in Syracuse.

Jacqueline posted in June a photo of herself with these words around it: “I’m not having the vaccine. My body, My choice.” In May she posted a photo of herself and the words “I trust my immune system not an experimental vaccine. My DNA, My Choice.”


I need to go see if it's posted at Herman Cain Awards yet.

That's pretty much how I'm seeing things at this point.

It's why I wake up in the early mornings in a heart pounding panic.

There may very well be a civil war of some sort, but I don't see any initiative for it coming from our party leadership. How many people would just keep their heads down and submit out of fear? And I count myself in that if I'm unfortunate enough to still be here.

I don't think there will be any shortage of people willing to shoot us, lock us up, torture us, or subject us to show trials for insane Q type shit. Our society has been being systematically desensitized to violence and death for decades now. We yawn at mass shootings, and we've barely blinked over a plague that's killed nearly a million of us.

And yes, I want very much to get my family out the country well before the next presidential election. Just waiting for the pandemic to hopefully die down some before getting started on that.

I honestly pray that the people who think we're being silly alarmists turn out to be right.

They're engaged in bioterrorism. The moral equivalent of suicide bombers.

That's what the Republicans are doing to this country.

At some point there should be some limit on how many unvaxxed Covid patients are allowed in hospitals. They're holding everyone else hostage.

Covid has shown that the "feared for their lives" claim is completely bogus.

If they were genuinely afraid of dying, they would get vaccinated, and I'd be willing to bet that there's a strong correlation between cops who use excessive force, and cops who refuse vaccination.

It really is all about outsized aggression, needing to dominate other people, and fear of being disrespected or dominated by anyone else. (I believe that submitting to vaccination is seen as submitting to someone else's authority, and that's why it's so feared.)

The old excuses will never cut it with me again.
