Russians grant Putin right to extend his rule until 2036 in landslide vote

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russians opened the door to Vladimir Putin staying in power until 2036 by voting overwhelmingly for constitutional changes that will allow him to run again for president twice, but critics said the outcome was falsified on an industrial scale.

Bad days for "critics" ahead.

Without descending into conspiracy theories, I bet I know who is watching with interest.

Right wing crazy uses public information to compile hit list

That's not how this right leaning site spins it, but I have no reason to assume the basic facts are being misrepresented.

Virginia Man Creates Snitch List of 1,200+ People Who Ratted on Citizens for Violating COVID-19 Edicts

A resident of Forest, Va. has assembled a list of over 1,200 snitches who reported their neighbors for potential violations of the state’s COVID-19 lockdown.

Isaiah Knight compiled the list after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which gave him the name of people who participated in the Soviet-style snitching campaign against their fellow man. He received information from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) that 1,293 people made complaints to authorities.

“The short answer is I wanted to see how many people would rat out Anne Frank. And it’s essentially that,” Knight said.

“What you see on this list from the Department of Health is people’s businesses. You see a lot of people who are complaining about churches. And I just don’t think the government should be telling people whether or not they should be wearing a mask or not,” he added.

Knight does not plan to release the personal information of the snitches, but he wants potential snitches to know that mindlessly complying with government tyranny could have serious consequences.

Noose Found In Black Firefighter's Locker (CBS)

Noose Found In Black Firefighter’s Locker

MINNEAPOLIS (AP/WCCO) – City officials in Bloomington, Minnesota, have asked the FBI to investigate after a piece of rope resembling a noose was found in a Black firefighter’s locker.

Officials of the Minneapolis suburb said in a news release Saturday that the rope was tied into what appears to be a crude noose and was discovered at a Bloomington fire station on June 15.

The discovery was reported to Bloomington Fire department leaders on Tuesday.

Fire Chief Ulie Seal said such acts that “embody hate, intimidation, and aggression will not be tolerated.”

“I can’t imagine a circumstance where this wasn’t intentional,” said Mayor Tim Busse. “The people or the person that committed this act is going to be held accountable. We have made that very clear that this is not condoned, this is not tolerated.”

Cops fired over violent, racist talk about Black people: We are going to 'start slaughtering them (NBC)

What the headline says.

These particular ones neutralized, but I have a suspicion what separates them from many others is better self control about popping off.

BLM EXCOMMUNICATED: Priest Denies Communion to All Members of Black Lives Matter

BLM EXCOMMUNICATED: Priest Denies Communion to All Members of Black Lives Matter

"As a priest in the Orthodox Church, it is my duty to ban members of Black Lives Matter from receiving Communion. I will not desecrate the precious Body and Blood of Christ, by allowing it to touch the unclean lips of those who are members of that satanic organization. If they want to take communion, they will have to find some other church."

"Members of Black Lives Matter need to get on their knees, and ask forgiveness for their participation in this godless movement."


Don't know if any BLM members are Russian Orthodox.

Are lefties allowed to say "virtue signalling" about right wingers?
