    For the statements you’ve made in your post. Examples:

    – Obama chose the immigrant workers as a scapegoat.

    – Obama and NATO engage in “far more” empire building than Putin. I assume you mean separately, since it wouldn’t really be fair to compare the two together to Putin alone.

    – Obama has a “regime” rather than an elected office.

    – The Obama regime is in a desperate fight to control poor countries, if that’s what you’re saying.

    – The Obama regime is “remarkably similar” to the Putin regime.

    I’m not suggesting that none of your statements could possibly be true, but if you provided evidence for any of them, I’ve missed it.

    For what, specifically.

  • Matt Rogers

    Evidence?

    But I was very surprised the camera operator was not harassed.

    The video above captures one of the most profound dichotomies in the world today, one which affects every aspect of life: a country without freedom of speech and countries that do have freedom of speech. I’m sure the difference is obvious to… um… almost everyone (cf. other comments on this thread).

    Twittering and giggling from the peanut gallery.

    Miss Perdue is full of laughs, all at his expense.

    LOL!

    Hey, if you reverse the letters on their uniforms it spells “HOMO”. Maybe Putin’s way of coming out?

  • Elijah Shalis

    Well this had a very predictable outcome but I admire them for doing it.

    The Putin regime is becoming more like the pre-revolutionary Tsarist regime by the day. Attacks on civil liberties, a more aggressive policy of empire building, attacks on unions and the standard of living or workers and the selection of groups to scapegoat.

    One of the main differences between the Putin regime and the Obama regime is in their choice of scapegoats. Putin chose the LGBT communities and Obama chose the immigrant workers. The other big difference is that Obama and NATO engage in far more empire building than Putin, who has far less, but still formidable, military resources.

    In an international situation similar to the end of the nineteenth century the major imperialist power, which once again includes Russia, are in a desperate fight to control resources and one of those resources is poor countries, like Ukraine, that can be bled dry. Otherwise the two regimes are remarkably similar.
