Russia doing it right -- Police convoy massive group of illegal immigrants
"Citizens of the Moscow suburb of Reutov have witnessed a previously-unseen procession of illegal aliens arrested by police at a local market. There were so many arrested that police had to form them into a column resembling POWs during WWII.
Police in Reutov suppressed a looming conflict at a local wholesale and retail market on May 27, arresting over a hundred of men armed with knives, metal rods and traumatic pistols, ready to set upon each other as a result of some kind of a conflict of interest between merchants. Many of the arrested turned out to be living and working in Russia illegally."
I see Freepers celebrating this, and I see Russia passing a severely restrictive anti-gay law that forbids even discussing homosexuality in a positive light, and I see Russia thumbing its nose at the White House by refusing to extradite Edward Snowden (whose attacks on Obama are greatly enjoyed by much of the right), and I see Russia backing Assad in Syria (against rebels the U.S. right regards as universally jihadist, not to mention pals of the hated Obama and the despised RINO John McCain) ...
... and I wonder at what point the wingers are going to start seeing Russia as a sort of paradise, a bastion of virtue in a sea of socialism, effeminacy, and environmentalism (did I mention Russia's status as an unabashed petro-state, and its utter disdain for greenness?).
Oh, and I almost forgot Russia's flat tax, which led Gerard Depardieu to give up his French citizenship, to the delight of the right.
Rudy Giuliani -- who knows a thing or two about authoritarianism -- seems ready to take the Putin plunge:
"That's not a fair match, between Putin and Obama," Giuliani said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends," looking at a New York Post cover featuring a shirtless Putin and Obama wiping his eyes under the title, "Czar Wars."Down, Rudy. Don't get too excited.
"Who would you give greater odds would catch a fugitive, a former KGB agent or a former community organizer?" Giuliani continued. “Give me a break, a KGB officer, you know, is working him over."
I know, I know -- it's hard for righties to give up on decades of anti-communism and Russki-bashing. So for now I guess it's going to be a sort of love that dare not speak its name:
