(Fox News)   Millions of Russians freaking out over video that shows expansionist Ukraine invading Russia and stealing territory. Story needs a tag that combines "stupid" "irony" "silly" "amusing" "dumbass" "weird" "unlikely" and "entertainment" yet not "Florida"   (foxnews.com) divider line 63

Well, based on the size of Russia and that area,,,,could we adopt the "Texas" tag?  Or do we have one of those?

They have Fox Newski in Russia?

It's almost as ludicrous as a movie about say, North Korea, successfully invading the United States.

It's a good thing that ludicrous threats from small, impoverished countries are the stuff of movies, and have never been used here to incite people in favor of any real wars of some kind.

Does Fox News see the irony of it running this story of fake Russian news when it does the same daily here in America?

Accounts from 1930s Germany tell how the media portrayed Germany as a put-upon victim, fighting to maintain peace against malignant outside powers.

With no alternative news source, many accepted this as the truth.

In his diary, Victor Klemperer (a Jew who survived the war in Dresden) wrote about people asking something like, "Why do the Jews treat us so badly. What did we do to deserve this?"

I consider myself a citizen of the world. All nationalism exists for is to make stupid people die for a 'cause', and make rich people richer.

Russians are fairly stupid people.  It comes from their gypsy blood.  The entire country is populated by people just slightly smarter than a US teabagger, which means that they will all swallow that story hook, line and sinker.

All the world's problems exist because of stupid people.

Similarly, I have many videos of when I successfully picked up women in bars, bedded them, made them weep with joy, had them bequeath their assets to me and then convinced them to leave in the morning without disturbing my slumber.

One would think that this kind of propaganda was impossible in these days of global communications via the internet but unfortunately one would be wrong. World communications is as always hampered by two things: Language and Ideology. And ideology is a stronger impediment to communication than language as there are no people who are more deaf than people who do not want to hear. The masses have a tendency to only consult medias that fit their view of the world.

/I hope this is clear as English is not my first language and I am sometime mocked by people who think it is.

"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

I was going to say "a movie about how Christians in the USA are losing their religious freedom and being oppressed by a cabal of atheist Muslims who force them at gunpoint to marry gay turtles," but sure, let's go with that.

Likewise in America, poor oppressed farkers cry about the evil fascist right wing republicans and wicked Fox News who oppress them at every turn.

Morons need their daily derp. It's why in a story about Russia they biatch about America, Republicans, and Fox News. I still get a chuckle when I see the farkers who said Crimea would not be invaded still derping out predictions.

The largest, most absurd lie repeated often enough becomes believable to many people because it feeds their fears.  In the end, truth gets trumped by perception.

Yes.  Now where was the article where some Russian was questioning the legitimacy of the US Government?

I'm very confused to read this on Fox News.

Also, US Farkers are so egotistical that they have to take a story about Russia and Ukraine and make it about the US.

Color me stunned: foreign readers draw comparisons to their own countries. Totally egotistical.
