What a fucking joke. With a cynicism I haven't seen outside the last
dozen or so American presidencies, RT.com reports
"About 3-4,000 Russian citizens joined anti-government fighters during
Kiev crackdown in Ukraine’s east, says the leader of Donetsk independent
republic, noting that self-defense fighters have never concealed this fact."
But none of this will perturb the "anti-imperialists". It is as Roger
Annis, Putin's Anna Louise Strong, put it: "There is not a chance they
could have resisted for so long and so successfully Kyiv’s NATO-backed
military offensive if they didn’t have a political and social cause
worth fighting for." It doesn't matter to Annis that not a single action
taken by the Donetsk People's Republic can be described as
anti-capitalist. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. These idiots who
get all googly-eyed over a brawny Russian Marine who fought in Chechnya.
Who can blame them? With a left that can barely get a hearing from
workers in the West, what better surrogate can there be than a fantasy
based on distant memories of Eisenstein's "The Battleship Potemkin".
