I was told yesterday by that uber pro-American anti-communist American Jew that American liberals actually hate Russia more than they hate China. I was surprised. He said that this is seldom realized, and that
if you compared xi to putin people would consider that offensive even
people have a double standard against white countries when it comes to human rights
So, the logic is because Russia is white, they should be held to higher standards for human rights and democracy, and the extent to which Russia is “freer” (than China, which blocks Google and Facebook and is still a one-party totalitarian state) is not enough to offset the differentiated standard....
В общем-то он прав в этом отношении - именно что "они пытаются заставить русских вести себя как положено белым людям" - такой забавный расизм наоборот.
