Because they can't, they won't, and they don't stop
Because they can't, they won't, and they don't stop
Well they can't, they won't, and they don't stop
Babushkas surround the orc's cops.

For a russian citizen to publicly stand up against their tyrannical government is braver than anything any American will ever have an opportunity to do. At this point, it's as dangerous as it was for German citizens to stand up to the nazis. We're all fortunate that we never have to make choices like this.

The russian government has broken the social contract.  As long as you dont care about politics you will be left alone to live your life, and we wont change the rules much.

Now they care.

The blue and white flag is the symbol of opposition to the russian government.

The mothers of the conscripts will be the key factor in changing the orc policies. Pooh tin's first struggle was the families of the Kursk and that was only a hand full. This time Pooh tin has thousands of angry mothers.

There was a Yakutian YouTuber I found during the pandemic who documented life in her little freezing town. Once the invasion began and YouTube pulled ad revenue payments from Russian vloggers, she lost her main source of income and stopped making videos (at least for a while, I think. Nothing has been in my Recommended list for months).

The people way out in the east seem completely disconnected from Moscow, but this recent military call up has made it clear they are still under Moscow's thumb. Good for these protestors for fighting back against Putin's insanity.

I mean, standing up the cops is pretty f*cking close, given they'll literally murder us for doing so. So let's pour one out for our POC and queer compatriots.

Well, there were those wars starting with Revolutionary then Civil if you were a southerner. Then there have been Americans fighting tyrannical governments in WWI, WWII, Gulf War 1 and 2.

If you were an American Indian standing up to the US government that was usually fatal or ended up with loss of privilege and land.

Then there was the Civil Rights movement in the south where the local governments violently oppressed protesters and Blacks.

There is a long history of Americans going up against oppressive government.

Don't give me this BS about Russian bravery. They were fine allowing Ukraine to get demolished. Fark them.

My roommate is from Turkey. Her president is an insane piece of shiat. She's here studying linguistics and her buddy is from Russia, also studying linguistics here.

Her president is also an insane piece of shiat.

Recently they both had to write essays begging for financial assistance because their countries are led by absolute Psychopaths and it's affected their plans for normal stuff like their families helping them with college.

Imagine writing the letter that goes "yes excuse me, I thought I had the next year planned out but my president started murdering people and now I'm not allowed to use banks but I would like to continue my education and also buy food."

Anyway both of these gals are great.  If we could murder Erdogan and Putin we would.

If I could do that, I would in a second. I have 3 lives to watch over , but a backpack nuke I would carry to the right setting, as long as those 3 lives were taken care of.

I am not saying all people of those countries are wrong, because they are not. I remember the coup attempt in Turkey a few years ago , and hoping it would succeed.
I have also watched russians keep going just backwards , and other countries as well. And as far as russia goes- they kept electing bigger and bigger authoritarians / fascists. I am sorry for your friends , and for the whole planet actually, but complacency does have consequences.
While I welcome these protests , I still see nothing that expresses anything but "woe is us because the men have to go fight" on any channels. No condemnation. Just, dont take our boys.

I have no truck with that- they can and had to have seen what has happened- the damn wagner group posts pictures of dead civilians each day.

I am too angry to continue. I wish your friends well

Exactly.  These maga farknuts get into power they will be just like Orban or Lukashenko.

In Iran women and decent men are standing up against an oppressive regime, and dying for their beliefs in hopes they can cause significant change. In Russia women and decent men are standing up against an oppressive regime to resist fighting an unjust, egomaniacal war. In Ukraine women and men are standing up against the latter oppressive regime as it wages a war to take away their sovereignty and their lives. In the United States we're on the final stretch of an election that will determine whether our country is to remain a democracy or become a theocratic fascist nation that oppresses women and minorities through a corrupt system that ignores the will of the people.

Feelin' a little bit like the eve of destruction. 10:45 PM on the Doomsday Clock. Something's gotta give. Conservative politicians worldwide are pushing hard and joining forces and fortunes to control and condemn the rest of us, and we either fight them off or get used to the Fourth Reich barging its way into our world.

These people in Russia and Iran and Ukraine are brave as hell. If we're not careful, we in the United States will be in their position soon, fighting to survive against a right wing that won't give up power without bloodshed.
