Another day, another indefensible move from Big Tech.
That’s right: while Big Tech is eager to ban conservatives, it is not so eager to ban the incredibly dangerous rhetoric emanating from the Kremlin, especially considering that, at the end of the day, civilians are the ones who suffer.
Not that it would matter to Twitter, a platform that is currently permitting the official webpage for the Kremlin’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to flourish.
“The purpose of this operation is to protect people who, for 8 years now, have been facing genocide perpetrated by the Kiev regime. To this end, we will seek to demilitarise & denazify Ukraine, bring to trial those who perpetrated bloody crimes vs civilians,” the MFA blared.
Wow. “Denazify” an American ally, and Twitter thinks such commentary is acceptable?
If Trump was permanently banned to the risk to safety, exactly what is the justification for feeding an American ally to the wolves via social media?
Facebook of course has joined hands with Twitter in aiding and abetting big war, as evident from Putin’s nonrestricted, non-censored Instagram page.
“The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported on the progress of the operation in the Donbass,” Putin declared in an Instagram post.
However, as disturbing as the social media activity admittedly is, the most disturbing moments of all have occurred when Putin has openly lambasted American foreign policy, specifically under the tenure of Bush, Obama, and now Biden.
In a nutshell, Putin is justifying doing whatever he’d like to Ukraine based upon the undoubtedly horrific actions the United States against civilians overseas.
“Then came the turn of Iraq, Libya and Syria. The illegal use of military power against Libya and the distortion of all the UN Security Council decisions on Libya ruined the state, created a huge seat of international terrorism, and pushed the country towards a humanitarian catastrophe, into the vortex of a civil war, which has continued there for years,” Putin declared, “the tragedy, which was created for hundreds of thousands and even millions of people not only in Libya but in the whole region, has led to a large-scale exodus from the Middle East and North Africa to Europe.”
Well, none other than Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton was in charge of Libya, and who can forget her incredibly insensitive remarks about he Americans who lost their lives there?
Clinton may think, “who cares, they’re dead,” though clearly Putin and others have taken a very different view of American elitism and arrogance.
“Incidentally, US politicians, political scientists and journalists write and say that a veritable “empire of lies” has been created inside the United States in recent years. It is hard to disagree with this – it is really so,” Putin added.
An empire of lies dramatically aided and abetted by social media giants, the very same social media giants aiding and abetting Putin today.
“But one should not be modest about it: the United States is still a great country and a system-forming power. All its satellites not only humbly and obediently say yes to and parrot it at the slightest pretext but also imitate its behaviour and enthusiastically accept the rules it is offering them,” Putin continued, “therefore, one can say with good reason and confidence that the whole so-called Western bloc formed by the United States in its own image and likeness is, in its entirety, the very same ‘empire of lies.’”
In other words, Putin won’t be stopping with Ukraine.
He’ll be starting there.
Rebekah Koffler, Former Defense Intelligence Agency officer, outlines this serious possibility in grave terms.
“Russia’s goal is not exactly to convert someone who is anti-Russia and make them into Russia’s supporter, but to sow enough doubt and confuse people about the real facts on the ground, so they become unable to make sensible conclusions about who is right and who is wrong,” Koffler remarked.
In other words, Putin is playing straight out of the Democrat playbook …
