To Russia with Loathe
True, 'modern' Russia under Putin is a crypto Fascist Christian rogue State but if the US is going to be excoriated for fraternising with it what about all the other horror states it has close ties to like the ghastly Arab Nazi State of Saudi Arabia and China for a start just to pick two that is no less authoritarian than Russia? The Left has turned on its former love because it has lurched to a sort of right wing Christian authoritarianism but other types of authoritarianism of a Islamic nature appears to bother it not. So Left and Right both have a penchant for totalitarianism of one sort or another and neither are anything other than compromised and mired in hypocrisy in what countries they choose to tacitly endorse by their silence or overtly condemn.
