I don’t know about you, but saying that Marxists should prioritize dismantling their own country’s bourgeoisie over global imperialism seems a bit ultra-leftist

Also a bit weird that they didn’t talk about Donbass

That fella comes from the group of “lefty influencers” who denounced war as “Russia doing imperialism”, called those trying to organize humanitarian aid “Putin’s collaborators” and called the entirety of Russian military imperialist nazis. One of that group, Andrew Rudoy, escaped to France a couple of days ago aided by French trots and through them by Macron himself. Guess all that should give you an idea of what kind of guy we’re looking at here. He also admitted to being funded by some bourgeois guy, probably someone from the western-rigged opposition. Never looked into it, the fact itself is enough.

P.S. “Прииивеееееет, козлыыыыыыы!” Those who know - they know.

Rudoy or Syomin?

Syomin, yeah.

Yikes, do you remember where he admitted this?

…Jesus fuck, I really gotta start saving this bullshit on my harddrive because it gets cleaned up in the times where you really needed. I can swear on my effing blood and guts that he made a post in his YouTube Community tab and cross-posted it to his VKontakte page where he boasted about enchancing his home studio and finally finding a stable source of financing that he refused to disclose which allowed him to continue his work.

Now the only thing that I could find is this old boring shit BUT THIS IS NOT THE THING I WAS INITIALLY SPEAKING ABOUT. https://youtu.be/-Cp3m8qs1Do

This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.

If you haven’t already found it, this GitHub page is an excellent collection of sources about socialism, imperialism, and other relevant topics, made by @dessalines and others.

We have a Matrix homeserver and a private Matrix room. See this thread for more information.
