Crimea

As usual, Western reporting on the conflict in Crimea is pure propaganda, pure garbage.  Here is a good article with the facts:

Today Crimea voted to join Russia.  I find it hilarious that first Russia was condemned for offering political asylum to an American (Snowden) who exposed the NSA which is the American equivalent to the KGB.  And now Russia is condemned for supporting democracy in Crimea.

One other point I want to make is that there are ethnic Russians on the Ukrainian side and ethnic Ukrainians on the Russian side.  So these people are divided based on their allegiance, not on their race, and I congratulate them for this.

In case anyone can't figure out thatincelblogger's point, his link points here:

https://www.youtube.com/user/RussiaToday

which produces this error:

"This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube's policy against spam, gaming, misleading content, or other Terms of Service violations."

RussiaToday is a Russian news company which one can find here:

http://rt.com/

YouTube is owned by Google which is a typical evil American company that practices rampant censorship and has a corporate motto of "Don't be evil" while it screws over both advertisers and publishers.  I hate Google so much that I no longer use them for search and instead use a Russian company:

Huh, looks like I'll have to take that back in this case. It's up and running again. Probably was a technical issue or something.

Yes, what a coincidence.

This is Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Sunday.  It looks worse than Crimea to me.

The less Americans know about Ukraine’s location, the more they want U.S. to intervene

More proof that ignorance and stupidity are the dominant forces in America today.
