The number of Russia apologists on social media exploded today. I’ve spent all day unfollowing and banning. But they are coming from every crevice, like cockroaches. Curiously, it’s happening just as things become really bad. I’m thinking that the Westerners’ psychological defenses are paper-thin if they are resorting to such extreme forms of denial.
I don’t think it’s political or a result of propaganda. People are simply so incredibly coddled that they hide their heads in the sand like ostriches. They’ve never experienced any hardship and can’t even see it on TV without freaking out and concocting a fairy tale to self-soothe.
