If you have bile and hatred inside you you have to hate someone. Liberals can’t hate blacks or gays so they hate Russians.
This is ‘journalist’ Shaun Walker writing in the Guardian about the developments in the ‘case’ of the downing of the Malaysian airliner over Eastern Ukraine in 2014. Continue reading “Bile in the Guardian”
