Russia is a lawless terrorist state

Yesterday, Russia carried out the most massive shelling of Ukraine’s energy system since the start of a full-scale war, Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko said. He noted that this attack could have an impact not only on the energy system of Ukraine but also on the energy systems of some of its neighbors.

From the Ukraine NOW Telegram:

According to the US State Department, since February 24, 260,000 Ukrainian children have been forcibly removed from Ukraine to remote regions of Russia

State Department spokesman Vedant Patel said that they are aware of numerous facts of how Russian invaders deliberately separate Ukrainian children from their parents and kidnap children from orphanages, and then give them up for adoption in Russia.

“Various sources, including the Russian government, indicate that the Russian authorities have evicted 260,000 children from [Ukraine] to Russia, often to remote areas of the Far East,” Patel said.

Morality Police in the U.S.?

As the right wing drifts ever farther into madness, some form of morality police will no doubt arise in the U.S., most likely in Texas first. They will probably call themselves the “Purity Posse” or something similar. The racial connotation and explicit authorization are carefully chosen. You have already seen the first stages with laws encouraging snitching and allowing third parties to sue suspected abortion lawbreakers.

This more organized form of moral vigilantism will then spread to other states. Meanwhile, demagogues looking to promote themselves on the national political stage will start submitting competing – and ever more draconian – federal legislation to force conformity.

You have been warned.
