Welcome to La Russophobe!

Welcometo the wonderful, awful world of La Russophobe!

This blog records the rise of the Neo-Soviet Union, a new dictatorship in Russia, relying for the overwhemling majority of its content on news reports from major media outlets with commentary from La Russophobe. From time to time, La Russophobe will also offer readers original material. Reader comments and submissions are always welcome and appreciated. Be sure that you will always receive the three "R's" -- response, recognition and reward (or retribution) -- when you write La Russophobe.

This blog does not accept financial contributions in any amount from any source for any reason. There is no paid advertising nor any possibility of financial gain from the publication of any material appearing on the blog.

Your practices here go well beyond fair use. You are not entitled to take entire original works and repost them, even if you link to the original and attribute it properly. Accepted procedure is to snippet the post and link to the entire thing on the original site. This is kleptocracy.

You couldn't be more mistaken. This blog carries no advertising and derives no income from any source. Therefore, it does not threaten the market share of any publication it cites. Copyright law is especially liberal in such situations, and even more so when the public interest in human rights is being served.

Moreover, many intelligent publications freely allow use of their material even by money-making blogs, as you can see here:

Though we posted nearly 2,000 times, only once has someone complained about our use of their material; in response, we were happy to remove that material and to ignore that source permanently in the future (something that hardly advances the interests of a publication interested in circulation and influence).

So fact, your statements are totally without substance and clearly the empty threats of someone who is either jealous of our success or opposed to us on ideological grounds, and as such fundamentally dishonest and hypocritical.

Quote Russophobe: "And apparently, Russians like it that way just fine. How much longer they'll have the luxury of doing so is anybody's depressing guess."

Makes one guess - just guess, mind you - that perhaps Russians are not after "anybody's" cheerful approval. Perhaps they will just continue to have the luxury of not giving a shit... indefinitely!

By the way, coupla more fact about THEM to add to your blog: when Russians were enslaved by the Tartars - they didn't work even then!!! And, crazy as it sounds, RUSSIANS WOULD ACTUALLY LAUGH at this!

And in fact, there are more cases of Russian women battering their husbands, given the poor things are usually too drunk to defend themselves. Sometimes kids would join in for the fun. I am guessing the male chauvinists - pigs, aren't they? - are simply too embarassed to report the true statistics. Or perhaps they just don't remember.

Makes you wonder though - if they managed to end up with the largest chunk of land, be the first to send man into space, and prove the Poincaré conjecture, all that in the drunken haze - what'd happen if they ever sober up?!!

Given how arrogant and militant the godless commies are, you just can't watch out too much ...

The link your source gives is not about Chechnya it's about missile defense. Maybe you can clear this up?
