People in Belarus are protesting against yet another election being stolen by dictator Lukashenko. Twitter is already full of bots, accusing the pro-democracy protesters of being “right-wing.” Belarus has been ruled by a dictator for 26 years, and the terminology of right vs left has no relevance. But I have no doubt we’ll hear on MSNBC how these protesters are all Nazis, just like we heard it about the Ukrainian protesters in 2014.
Unless it’s totalitarian, the American left doesn’t like it.
I wish every success to Belarusian brothers and sisters. I hope they manage to get rid of Lukashenko but also avoid getting invaded by his handlers. This is a good country, wonderful people but they haven’t been able to catch a break in forever. I so hope their time has come.
