It’s Happening

As Facebook changes its policy to allow praise for Ukrainian neo-Nazis, is this a further example of the double standards of censorship as well as our collective short memories?

  1. Loved this because you're opening the Pandora box. Aside from the fact that you've touched the "neo"Nazi argument only now when it's been ongoing for 8 years,it still good it came up. Meta allowed it against Russians today. Tomorrow might be China. When is it going to be against the black community? After tomorrow? Next week? Just something to ponder about. If Nazism was only about debating WW2 wouldn't have been militaristic and Jewish people wouldn't have had to die in the most cruel maner. In confront communists are a delight.

  2. Thanks for your tireless work mate. When one “awakens” the truth is what you “feel” rather than read or hear.
    I have never trusted authority and it’s workings. The more people go through their own “dark night” and come out the other side then the world can change.it’s all been set up so this never happens as the collective power would be immense.
    Keep going Russell 👌

  3. Everyone has a right to voice their ideologies and ideas.

    Stopping them just proves that they are oppressed. Which on it's own is a call for support to like minded people.

  4. Canadian here. I had to watch/listen to people shit on that trucker convoy as being filled with nazi's and mysoginists. The media and our government wrote off the entire movement due to a small amount of bad actors. But now that we are all supposed to hate Russia while we praise the Ukraine, USA and Nato, and just ignore these nazi's. I'm so tired of hypocrisy and lies and narratives.

  5. As an addenda, many members of the British Union of Fascists fought the Germans during the Last Unpleasantness. Do you think it likely you would ask a man if his politics are acceptable before he picks up a weapon to defend you? Unlikely.

  6. The Nazi group being on facebook i think should be ok. Because i feel that ANY group of people trying to do the RIGHT thing SHOULD be praised for it. They should NOT be praised for being neo-nazis, but they SHOULD be praised for doing GOOD. That in turn might just change their stance on being neo-nazis itself. If you want a person or group of people to change, then praising them when they do the right thing is a good place to start.

  7. You could dress and think like a Roman , but you wouldn't be one . You could dress and think like a nazi , but without the 501st SS behind you … you're not a nazi .
    My Grandfather defeated the nazi's in 1945

  8. I think humans in general moving forward should stop taking themselves SO seriously! You are not that important and no one cares who you are or how much money you have! We all leave here with nothing! So over greed and EGO! Men need to have several seats! Men in general are the only ones who promote war and greed! Dicks!

  9. FOUCAULT IS SUSPECTED OF FORMING THE OPERATIONAL PHILOSOPHY OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD PRISONERS THAT ENABLED THEM TO CONTROL EGYPT FROM BEHIND BARS IN PRISON. THEY EVENTUALLY TOOK OVER POLITICAL CONTROL OF EGYPT THROUGH NATIONAL ELECTIONS. WITHIN 2 YEARS THE PEOPLE OF EGYPT ROSE UP AND THREW THEM OUT AND JAILED THE WORST POLITICIANS AND THEIR CRONIES. FROM THE MOVIE, ATTICA" …."ONCE YOU CONTROL THE PRISONS YOU CONTROL THE STREETS". THE USA DOES NOT HAVE A HOMOGENEOUS POPULATION LIKE EGYPT. USA COULD NEVER OVERTHROW COLLUSION BETWEEN THE PRISONS AND THE IVORY TOWERS. THE MIDDLE CLASSES ARE TOO FRAGMENTED AND BALKANIZED TO STAND TOGETHER AS THEY DID IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. EVEN THEN 1/3 OF AMERICANS MOVED TO CANADA OR WANTED TO MOVE AWAY FROM DEMOCRACY.

  10. If censorship is the authoritarian removal of information deemed to be harmful by those in power … then
    1. They have decided (for you) that the information is either false or doesn't fit the narrative.
    2. Their ability to do this reinforces their belief they are smarter than us.
    Its a common problem amongst the spectacularly stupid and ignorant unfortunately. Oh well …

  11. Well I guess as the communists have had all the say on FB without being banned it's fair enough to give the Nazis a go. I mean it's the communists who invented the concentration camps and murdered 20 million people in Russia even before Nazis came to power in Germany and murdered 6 million people. And the communists have gone on to murder 200 million people since then so I don't see that the Nazis are such a big deal.

  12. Right on target, as usual. A big target that includes the bad things that an insidious net enmeshes us all in. An illustration of the confusion resulting from the ever shifting narratives: the other day someone commented how they used to like what Russell was sharing but now they find him to be the victim of conspiracy theories he's pushing on people. When in fact, it's just the opposite! When the message is to see, recognize and feel reality and appreciate our own abilities to handle it. BTW, I agree with Varoufakis: free speech for everyone. If we don't hear or see them, we can never vanquish our enemies.

  13. Why have you chosen this moment to critizise the ” neo nazists” i Ukraine ? Why wait for the moment when the country is attacked by a foreign country ? If it was so revoltig to you why are you only speaking up now ? Ifind it to be a sign of an incredible lack of courage.

  14. Is the Pandora Papers tax dodge by global Oligarchy where mining wasteland property in South Carolina and the $300,000,000. Million for "Coal affected areas" in the Build Back Better Bill, a money laundering loop on the tax burden on the backs of American citizens?

  15. COVID has fallen off the face of the earth, also Prince Andrew's case quickly went away, as well as Party gate! Totally agree that it's just distractions from the previous thing that happened. Keep doing what you're doing Russell.👍

  16. Russell, I suggest you start paying attention to Ukrainian voices, a variety of them, because as much as you rightly point out western hypocrisy, you are ever so slightly veering into anglo-western exceptionalism around this issue, betrayed by many of your sources (which are otherwise generally credible under more mundane circumstances). The fact is Ukraine has a Jewish President. Ukraine lost millions of people to the Nazis in WW2. The proportion of avowed Nazis in Ukraine is so small, that none were able to secure seats in the Ukrainian parliament. The Azov Battalion (a tiny proportion of Ukrainian military, let alone Ukrainians) have been used to deliberately inflate Russian propaganda, create false flag narratives, and create disunity and doubt in response to the situation. What was a rag-tag amateur volunteer unit has since been largely cleaned up and professionalised in the last 8 years. That’s not to say there may still remain an element within it, but again, one battalion (at most around 1000 troops) within a whole Army, let alone country, hardly constitutes a Nazi problem. Meanwhile Putin’s forces bombed Babyn Yar Holocaust memorial in Kyiv.

  17. No one should be censored free speech means all speech. It's way too slippery of a slope to start deciding who can speak and not it might sound good for you at the time until the other party is in power and you are the enemy

  18. I believe we should demand they slightly change their names to the Neon-Nazis so at least they glow in the dark and we can see them in them coming. Makes as much sense as anything else that's been suggested.

  19. You're getting up there with JRE in my mind, Russell. Daylight is the best disinfectant, not because it destroys the ideas but because it allows everyone to view it clearly, discuss its merits, and then let it bleach away all detail until it's a meaningless form that no one bothers with.

  20. Well, this is the result of postmodernism that many of us were warning about in the 1990s when everyone was saying “there is no truth” and “do whatever feels right to you.” You can’t have Orwell’s doublethink unless the ground has been plowed in the mind by saying “what you believe to be true is both wrong and harmful to others…but it’s also okay for you to think what you wish…as long as WE say it’s okay.” The Emperor has had no clothes on for the past two decades. Hopefully voices like yours can break through the noise to alert people to our true existential danger.

  21. Trudeau and company slam the fact that 1 flag was “supposedly” spotted in Ottawa at the trucker protest, fast forward 3 weeks and Trudeau and his evil side kick Freeland are openly doing photo ops with Nazi groups related to Ukraine. You can’t make shit like this up because it’s simply unbelievably. Oh and his supporters don’t care one iota……..

  22. The fact that Facebook would allow a neo-Nazi group space to speak out or speak at all when before they were a band group proves it Facebook not only doesn’t care about human rights doesn’t care about the boots on the ground doesn’t care about human life all they care about is their financial and political gains and no matter what they have to do to attain those gains they will do you’re exactly right Russell but it’s not only Facebook it’s the US government because Facebook will only allow with the US government i.e. corporate money big tech money the joke Biden administration and all their cronies are OK with so as you say as long as their agenda is being forwarded so be it I guess it comes down to who side are you on Because the reality of it is War is a horrible part of human history worldwide and anyone who is not saying the first thing that Hass to happen to stop the killing stop the bombing stop the shooting has a sinister agenda
