browsing through All has so much pro-fascist posts coming from lemmygrad that it drowns out all the other instances. I’m surprised they’re even federated by default but we should have an option to block instances from All if lemmy is deadset on federating with them just because they are fascists with a red and yellow flag…
(before the Tankies start posting about how they aren’t pro-fascism “Fascism is a far-right, authoritarian, ultranationalist political ideology and movement, characterized by a dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the good of the nation and race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy” which all describe the Z movement in Russia they gleefully support in multiple posts)
Support / questions about Lemmy.
Your comment is factually incorrect… Russia has been expanding its borders for a long time and Ukraine wasn’t the first violation. There is a war now because Russia violated Ukraine’s borders.
Ukraine is also not full of Nazis. Some exist, but they are few in number. Russia has more crazy right wing fascist types than Ukraine does and the Russian government actively encourages this. Putin is a type of right wing nationalists dictator.
lol you need a source for this?
Uh, yeah. Those are some bold claims about countries that you probably have never been to.
Right like Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a “claim”… ? I understand why you would assume I’ve never been to this part of the world, but I do in fact live here. The place I live is basically a Russian colonial asset, and China has started colonizing it recently too, although Chinese culture is not yet very influential here. Because of where I live I experienced first hand the right-wing conservatism that Russia exports, and has exported since the time of the USSR, that Russians are a superior nation, a superior white race, have a superior language and culture, that Asians are subhumans, that homosexuals are evil, Jews are evil, and so on… people are forced to go to nationalist rallies and marches, adore their “leader”, and all that wonderful stuff. You don’t even want to know the fucked up stuff that goes on in primary schools, where most of this stuff starts. Anyway I could go on but I’ve never seen fascism as up close in my life than when I moved to the Russian sphere. I’ve had neighbors “disappear”, coworkers going into hiding after the police saw them at a political rally and then came to their workplace, and more. You would never want to live here just stay in North America or Western Europe or wherever it is Lemmy communists are from. You can play make-believe with your first world communism, but over here in Asia it’s a different story. I was surprised when I moved here I thought the local communist party would be some kind of progressive organization and then I found out it’s a bunch of conservatives who want Russian colonialism to be revitalized.
You do realize Russia is part of asia, right?
Yes, but it’s a white supremacist culture. Russian national identity is based on the notion that they are white Christians who defeated evil gay Asian invaders and saved their sacred white European nation in the process. You can see this clearly in Russian media like in the movie Kolovrat where the Mongol villains are depicted as gender queer.
In Russia not all people in Russia are called “Russan”. The people there who look Asian, particularly if they have black hair or look non-white in any way are called churka, the Russian equivalent of n****r, or gypsy. People who can’t speak Russian are subject to abuse, like if you speak an Asian language in Moscow you might get told to “speak human”. I could go on but you get the picture.
are you just insane or willfully ignorant?
