Russia, Nation of Murdering Bastards
Last week was the third anniversary of the assassination of hero reporter Anna Politkovskaya. The Kremlin commemorated the event in its usual bloodthirsty fashion.
First, it handed victory to the crazed mass-murdering dictator of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, in his libel suit against the Memorial human rights organization over Memorial’s demands for justice in the killing of Politkovskaya’s successor, Natalia Estemirova. Politkovskaya worked closely with Memorial in reporting on human rights issues in Chechnya, and Kadyrov hated them equally.
Then, it booted Reporters without Borders out of the country. Last year it was Human rights Watch, this year RWB. RWB has been tireless in standing up for justice in the Politkovskaya murder case, which has gotten exactly nowhere in the three years since her brutal, barbaric killing.
And for the capper, it toasted Vladimir Putins’ 57th birthday.
Indeed, many would suggest that the killing of Politkovskaya was a birthday president for Russia’s KGB strongman ruler, so Russia was in a sense toasting the murder of Politkovskaya as well. Of course, there was no official state rememberance of Politkovskaya at all.
Only a nation of true rat bastards could allow sacrilege this breathtaking to occur before the gaping eyes of a horrified planet. A message is sent loud and clear that Russia does not want patriots or heroes, does not want to change, does not want civilization or prosperity, but wishes instead to wallow in a cesspit of barbarism and despair until, ultimately and inevitably, the nation is destroyed.
