21 November 2014. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… Rich Lowry Parades His Ignorance of All Things Russian Yet Again

On page 13 of the print edition of the 17 November 2014 National Review, Rich Lowry paraded his stupidity and ignorance of all things Russian. He wrote, “in all the Ukraine minus the Crimea and the THREE eastern provinces controlled by ‘pro-Russian separatists’ (sic)”. OUCH! The righties get it wrong again! Firstly, the patriots control TWO of the former oblasts in the ex-eastern Ukraine… the Lugansk People’s Republic (the former Lugansk Oblast) and the Donetsk People’s Republic (the former Donetsk Oblast). “Two” and “three” are different, we all learned that in kindergarten. Perhaps, the Count from Sesame Street should hit Rich Lowry with a real Soupy Sales “pie in the face”. At present, the Republic of the Crimea (formerly, the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea under the Ukraine) and the City of Federal Significance of Sevastopol (both under the Ukraine and the RF, Sevastopol isn’t part of the Crimea politically) are part of the Russian Federation, and the DNR and LNR are independent entities (federated in the Union of People’s Republics of Novorossiya). Of course, Mr Lowry doesn’t know this, so, any of his comments on the Russian/Ukrainian situation are crank and without any value whatsoever (this is true of all rightwing American commentators, especially, invincible ignoranuses such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Rod Dreher, Bill O’Reilly, and Patrick Buchanan). In all, four former “objects of federal significance” in the Ukraine are now free of Uniate fascist misrule. Also, do note that Mr Lowry didn’t mention that the KPU and Party of Regions weren’t on the ballot due to neo-Nazi elements in the junta (after all, it glorifies the Nazi collaborators of the VOV). A rather important detail, no?

Well… it gives you the measure of the Republican Party’s intelligence and of the intelligence of its obsequious running dogs in the media (note their utter and united silence about Initiative 594, Prop 67, and Howie Hawkins in the last election), doesn’t it? After all, we’re talking about a faction that adores Sarah Palin… a poseur who quit as governor of a state to take a well-paid media position. None dare call her a media whore… nor the idiots like Rod Dreher who defend her. If they can’t count… need I go on? The Republicans ARE the “Stupid Party”… ’nuff said!
