At the risk of this blog becoming little more than The Worst of Facebook we just had to share this, apropos of yesterday’s post about George Soros being portrayed in some parts as Romania’s greatest enemy. It’s written by Iulian Capsali, a would-be politician who tried and failed to get into the European Parliament in 2012 (few people voted for him, fortunately). Capsali is a staunch Putinista and Russophile who has defended the Russian occupation of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine (Soros started it, apparently), is virulently anti-European, a raging homophobe (he really, really has a problem with gays) and whose Facebook posts are often little more than thinly disguised nuggets of hatred aimed at anyone who disagrees with his worldview (stuck somewhere in the Middle Ages). He has in the past written about how only ‘real men’ can save Romania: a woman’s role is not in politics. He has praised certain policies of Nicolae Ceausescu, holds President Assad of Syria (known to the rest of the world as a vicious mass-murderer) in high regard and generally thinks that the enlightenment was a terrible, terrible thing.
Anyway, yesterday he shared the wonderful news with his followers that the Open Society Foundation (funded by George Soros, the devil himself of course) had been kicked out of Russia for posing a threat to national security and the Russian constitution:
Another nail in the coffin of the Russian opposition, and of Russian democracy. Who wouldn’t want to rejoice at that news?
