Saw Yakov’s show in Branson. While much was pretty funny, there was an “Ayn Randian” anti-Russian/anti-communist abundance, playing to the American audience (most, sorry, “redneck”) that got a little “over the top”. As someone who’s actually fought “communists” for America, and killed a few, the reaction of the audience was a little “disturbing”. They call it “nationalism”, and Germany got a little carried away with that in the 20’s and 30’s which led to a little “trouble” in the ’40’s.
Which, why do Americans NOT ADOPT ALL AMERICA’S ORPHANS FIRST?
NO, I don’t care for Putin, though “W” saw into his soul and loved him. (Yes, righties, think about that one a minute. Maybe it was because “daddy” ran the CIA for a while, into the ground?) I don’t like “Communism”, nor what I see in UNregulated Capitalism that we’ve suffered under for 30 years now. BTW, it is the growth of “capitalism” in Russia that has led to gangs, mobs, and mafias making the most money in a new “system” that hasn’t found its way to appropriate regulation yet.
Totalitarian regimes ARE very, very bad for freedom, but as Yakov found out, we really need to be careful how we define that term.
