    Yes that right Putin is an alt-right troll: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-43374375

    "Maybe they're not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars, Jews, just with Russian citizenship. Even that needs to be checked."

    Putin's tactics is literally that of a internet troll, just stir shit and sit back and laugh.

    So, you don't care about the Ukrainians, and/or Tatars?

    Comparatively, I would note the point about the Jews, as well, before Ukranians or Tatars, because it's always about the Jews when we run into rhetoric like Putin's. The weirdest thing about the politics of Jew caricaturization is that people will blame them for damn near anything except the stuff the Israeli government actually does. In a twisted way, the Israeli government makes a certain amount of sense: The way to keep the bullies off your back is to show you can be a bully, too.

    However, if we take an instance of Israel flooding Palestinians off their land for the sake of an alleged military exercise, and maybe someday someone blows something up in the U.S., ostensibly for revenge against Israel's masters, or poodles, or however that goes, when bigots get around to blaming the Jews, it will be for something made up, like false-flagging the bombing itself, or staying home from work that day.

    I don't think we must necessarily overlook Ukrainians and Tatars; it's just that blaming Jews is such an obvious trope.

    There is a lot about Putin's attitude that, in its own twisted way, makes a certain amount of sense; he is the crowning symbol of a peculiar antisociability, which is why it looks and sounds like he's trolling the world.
