Dear La Russophobe,
I just discovered your blog, and absolutely LOVED IT!!!
I am a Russian-American, who grew up in the US and have been living in Moscow for the past year (husband’s job). I sometimes put on RT when I am in the mood to become even more disgusted with this place.
Yesterday, I caught this low-life, Peter Lavelle, on his show. WOW!!! This is a special kind of a-hole.
Living here, no doubt with his US passport hidden under his pillow, speaking as if he knows the “real” . HA! the “real” Russians (about 92% of the population) can’t afford to go to live his lifestyle (5 start restaurants, shop at GYM, going to the Bolshoy Theatre, ect. The quality of “real” life here, in this god-forsaken place, is basically the equivalent of a poor third-world country – with one very important exception – the third-world country doesn’t pretend to be anything but what it is. Ethiopia doesn’t have a Tiffany’s on their main street, Sudan doesn’t have Novikov’s ridiculously overpriced restaurants, and (though I may be mistaken) the Congo doesn’t have a giant Mercedes dealership! Hypocrisy does not even come close to describing how deceitful and fake this country is!
In any case, somebody should strip this MF of his citizenship all together.
I can barely tolerate the garbage that regular Russians spew everyday about the US, but when you have some swine, who is basically an American, engaging is such filthy propaganda, this is something unreal. Words can’t express what that termite is . . .
I think I will start writing to you more often. It is a great way to get some of the frustration that has lodged itself in my throat out:)
