    But damn that’s a cool feature. Can you run a search on Ukraine + Nazis prior to the invasion to say what western reporting was saying about it back then?

    Then suddenly there’s the invasion, and suddenly it’s revealed that the hype was all fake, Russia was bluffing on its military, they are mostly poorly trained, with ridiculously outdated equipment.

    Do you live in an alternate reality where NATO is winning this war? Lmfao

      The narrative shifts second to second. One moment it’s an all powerful hegemony that pulls all the strings, the next it’s getting crushed by Russia.

      NATO is both a super-powerful bogeyman, and weak and helpless, depending on what most helps the current agenda.

        I’m rubber your glue, now you have to explain why Russia is hilariously incompetent and weak and simultaneously managing to brainwash people 5,000 miles away inside Americas own borders with a tiny fraction of America’s own media and propaganda power

          Well I do like to say that if Russia spent its troll farm money on its military instead, then it could afford the military it pretended to have.

          Tongue in cheek, obviously troll farms are way more cost effective.

          And it’s not like anyone was actually brainwashed into being a Russian agent. It’s just trolls who regurgitate pre-programmed talking points. And it’s really easy to walk into an alt-right or tankie bubble, list off a few in-group signals, and then just say things that already line up with their confirmation bias.

            Actually I have a theory that the libs are the ones being targeted and brainwashed by Russian talking points. The Russians have convinced the libs that they secretly control everything and that everybody who disagrees with them is a Russian spy or a bot. The libs in turn act completley deranged about the Russian menace, thereby losing credibility in the eyes of their own countrymen and the world, and making foolish decisions of all sorts. They successfully are dividing our country by making the libs paranoid and distrustful. It’s truly a sad way for our country to be torn apart.

              The proof is right there lol.

              Russian propaganda successfully convinced everyone that Russia had on of the most modern, powerful, well trained armies in the world. This is well documented. Most of the West predicted the fall of Ukraine within days.

              The funny thing about a propaganda army, is that it can’t fight a real war for you. The Ukraine invasion stripped away the illusion, and the world got to see the real Russian military behind the facade.

              everybody who disagrees with them is a Russian spy or a bot

              Absolutely not, but it’s really easy to spot someone with incoherent rhetoric, that dances back and forth, and parrots pretty predictable lines they got online.

                Exactly what you are doing, which confirms my suspicions that you’ve fallen into the Russian propaganda trap! You need to snap out of it!

                    America actually sucks ass on its own merits, Russia isn’t responsible for any of America’s problems (since America is the sole global superpower and has absolute control over itself and a great deal of the rest of the world) and the fact that you seek out an external boogeyman to blame really only proves that you’re a highly propagandized jingoist incapable of facing this reality.
