The best Russian propaganda stories

Bryan MacDonald's thread is a good opportunity to update our list of all the issues, ideas and things Russia has weaponized.

MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian Armed Forces has unveiled its latest cutting-edge weapon in a New Year’s greetings video: cuddly puppies.

After a year of showing off its military might in Syria, the Defense Ministry has taken a softer approach in a one-minute video showing dozens of puppies sharing food and cuddling with each other. Older dogs are shown playing with unidentified officers.

In the Chinese calendar, 2018 is the year of the dog, so many Russians are using dogs in their holiday greetings this season.

Over 3,000 dogs are employed in the Russian armed forces.

Dogs from the 470th Dog Breeding Center outside Moscow are among the most decorated in Russia. The center won an international competition last summer against the canine forces of Belarus, Egypt, Iran and Uzbekistan.

Kinda lite on the details of how Russian dawgs got people to start seeing HerHeinous for who she is and change their vote to Trump. I might have missed it though.

The titles are funny as all get out. From Moon of Alabama.

Even while the list below now includes 111 entries - like robotic cockroaches, postmodernism and 14.legged squids - it is likely far from being complete.

In case you missed this earlier.

I’d love to send this to my uncle and a few friends who have drunk the Russian Kool-Aide, but they just aren’t interested in seeing anything that might interfere with the facts that democrats and their media sycophants have told them about why the worst person in recent history lost to Trump. They also won’t see Obama’s and democrats role in his winning. If Trump hadn’t screwed up Covid so badly he’d have won a second term. I have no doubt. He is still very insistent on believing that he actually did. I’ve seen no proof, but if democrats are willing to cheat to win the primaries with their pick in place then why would it be out of bounds for them to cheat in the general? Oops went off again.

But now we see how their constant pushing of propaganda about Russia and many of the things Trump did paying off for them. The guardian article about how it’s Russia pushing for war and not us and our puppet Zelensky that Joe posted in Friday’s EBs was probably not questioned by the readers. But for me the absolute worse outcome of Russia Gate is what is happening to Julian Assange and how people who would absolutely stand against the act are happy that it’s happening to him. 1st the accusations that Russia gave the hacked material to Wikileaks which caused Her loss and the rape allegations in Sweden that he was never charged for. Julian did not skip bail. He sought sanctuary inside the Ecuadorian embassy which was his right to do because he knew that we were gunning for him. Somebody in Britain with power should point that out.

So whilst these headlines might be funny, there is real damage behind them.

that Americans believe this stuff when our own government is doing its damnedest to destroy its own citizens. Even if Russia wanted to destroy us (which I do not believe) why would they want to make the effort when our own government is doing such a great job without them even having to try?

This is funny as hell, but I cannot believe people are actually buying this baloney.

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." ~ President John F. Kennedy

Here is part of the rhetoric.

Some information on Bill Browder.

William Felix Browder (born April 23, 1964)[1] is an American-born British financier and political activist.

The primary investment strategy of Browder was shareholder rights activism. Browder took on large Russian companies such as Gazprom, Surgutneftegaz, Unified Energy Systems, and Sidanco.[7] In retaliation, on November 13, 2005, Browder was refused entry to Russia, deported to the UK, and declared a threat to Russian national security.[8]

Browder lobbied for Congress to pass the Magnitsky Act, a law to punish Russian human rights violators, which was signed into law in 2012 by President Barack Obama.[11][13] In 2013, both Magnitsky and Browder were tried in absentia in Russia for tax fraud.[14] Both men—Magnitsky had died four years prior—were convicted and sentenced to imprisonment. Interpol rejected Russian requests to arrest Browder, saying the case was political.[15] In 2014, the European Parliament voted for sanctions against 30 Russians believed complicit in the Magnitsky case; this was the first time it had taken such action.

In July 2017, Browder testified to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

On October 19, 2017, Canada enacted its own Magnitsky Act, which permits the freezing of assets and the suspension of visas when officials from Russia and other nations are found to be guilty of human rights violations; Canadian firms are prohibited from dealing with foreign nationals who have grossly violated human rights.[16] Other countries including Estonia, Lithuania, and the United Kingdom, have also enacted their own version of the Magnitsky Act.[17]
