Putin’s War on Children
Russia’s birth rate is below replacement levels at 1.5. It’s total fertility rate is lower than almost all Western nations but Putin wants to be the New Stalin with a revived Soviet Empire under his control — something an awful lot of Republicans in Congress seem to want as well.
Now other nations replace population with immigration — even though TFR is falling globally. But who the hell wants to go to the trash heap that is Putin’s Russia? People tend not to flee to tyrannical nations in large numbers and Russia’s population took a real hit with Putin’s attack on Ukraine as hundreds of thousands of young men, and their families, fled Russia to avoid enslavement in the military.
A report from Reuters said, “Getting precise totals is difficult but the number of Russians who have left could run into hundreds of thousands, based on media reports and figures released by neighbouring states. Figures are not usually broken down, so can include men facing the draft, family members and other travellers.”
Putin’s regime denied the figure of 700,000 Russians having fled the country and given Putin’s history with the truth that makes it a reasonable estimate.
So what’s a murderous war criminal to do? Putin’s solution is more violence — steal women and children from Ukraine and force them into his massive prison camp disguised as a nation. The children can be indoctrinated and the women are breeding stock. Some 13,000 children have been kidnapped by Russian war criminals that are known of.
Sure some were just raped and murdered, something Putin doesn’t have a problem with, but the rest were forcibly taken to Russia to serve the New Master Race of Adolph Putin.
The head of one orphanage Volodymyr Sahaidak said they had seen what Russia did to children in the Donbas region. “We saw Russian propagandists (see they have Republicans there too!) saying that they need to take the orphans to give them to military schools, indoctrinate them and let them fight for Russia.”
That is how empire-hungry dictators see children — they are canon fodder to be sent to their deaths for his personal esteem issues.
Sahaidak took 52 children from his orphanage and hid them, much the way Jewish children had to be held from the Putins of the day in 1940s Germany. No sooner do Putin’s SS legions arrive than they and the secret police rush the orphanage looking for the children, something caught on video.
When they couldn’t find the children they ransacked the home taking all the records about the children in an attempt to track them down. Villages took the children in and pretended they were their own — risking their own lives.
The Russians demanded the orphanage care for 15 orphans from another area of Ukraine, but it was only temporary and those children were then forcibly taken back to Putin’s Paradise.
Last March the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv said Putin was guilty of mass kidnapping of civilians and forcing these prisoners into remote regions of Russia desperate for population. Russians state-owned media tried to cover it up by claiming “millions” of Ukrainians were begging to be let into Russia. Odd thing is all the traffic jams fleeing the country were going west not east, or north.
Ukrainian MP Inna Sovsun said, “They’re taking Ukrainian citizens, sending them through what are called filtration camps, and then relocating them to distant parts of Russia to work for free. This is the logic of Nazi Germany.” Vadym Boichenko, the mayor of Mariupol, said something similar: “What the occupiers are doing today is familiar to the older generation, who saw the horrific events of World War II when the Nazis forcibly captured people.”
Our world today is one where Orwell’s “Newspeak” is fluently used by Putin and his pimps in the Republican Party. Each accuses others of the very things they are most guilty. It’s not drag queens “grooming” and molesting children, but thousands of evangelical preachers. Southern Baptists, the base of the Republican Party, secretly kept a list of hundreds of their own preachers guilty of sexual abuse, most of whom had their crimes covered up by the church and then left in positions allowing them to do it again!
Meanwhile Republican representatives, those loudest about fake grooming claims directed at the LGBT community voted against a measure to rectify FBI mishandling of sexual trafficking incidents.
In the attack on the people and infrastructure of Ukraine we have the likes of Rand Paul and Thomas Massie claiming Russia is defending itself although NO ONE attacked Russia. They accuse Ukraine, whose president is Jewish, of being a Nazi state while defending Putin who is acting precisely like a Nazi.
Yes, it’s Newspeak where those guilty of crimes blame the innocent they hate for the crimes of the guilty.
