As reported earlier today on AT, thanks to PropOrNot, it is now possible for hard working Americans and their families to surf safely online and avoid being propagandized by Russians. These protections did not always exist. Many innocent people have inadvertently read an apparently harmless, well-written, balanced and properly-sourced article on Russia Today without realising they were being brain-washed all along. We regret the harm caused to these poor victims, who are now convinced, for example, that white people are responsible for most of the world’s major advances in science, technology and culture. There is no helping them.
Unfortunately, PropOrNot is not there to protect us when we are not online or in the comfort of our own homes. For this reason, we provide accredited guidance below on how to identify a Russian man or woman (perversely, they only have 2 genders in Russia) you may come across in public so that you can make appropriate actions to avoid them.
Bear in mind that Russia is a large country with around 12% of the world’s entire land mass, and a population in the hundreds of millions. This means that the Russians are literally everywhere. Scientists have calculated that, at any time, you are likely to be no more than six metres away from a Russian. What then to look out for?
In the first place, a Russian dresses differently to you and I. Most Russians wear a fur hat called an Ushenka like the repulsively white lady in the photo below. Although this will make the Russian stand out in summer time, they are able to hide themselves more effectively in winter. He/ she is also likely to be carrying a bottle with a clear liquid in it called Vodka and drinking it neat, even during business hours.
If they are not wearing an Ushenka or drinking Vodka, there are other tell-tale signs. Unlike most of us in the West, Russians spend a disturbing amount of time reading classic works of literature, listening to classical music, visiting art galleries/museums, and are utterly ignorant of rap, MTV culture, spirit cooking and twerking. They are highly intelligent as a people and well-able to hold their own in a debate on many subjects such as philosophy, science and politics. At no point attempt to engage in a discussion with them as they could cause you to alter your world-view with the use of ‘critical thinking.’ Indeed, the motto of Russia Today is ‘question more’ – a dangerous concept indeed.
The sad reality is that the Russians are among us everywhere and they intend to stay. By taking sensible precautions such as ignoring them and walking away, you can stay relatively safe but you can never be too careful!
