For the whataboutists (07/03/22 08:56:46) Reply
    Some - I don't say who - counters every criticism of Putin-inspired reactionary, illiberal, antidemocratic, imperialistic, genocidic and corrupt regimes with a "Whatabout The West, Whatabout the liberals".

    There is this to say: I'm against all those crimes, regardlessofthe name and location of the perpetrator.

    In the US, even there, there are potential allies.

    "CMD disputes the characterization of "liberal" and describes itself as an "investigative watchdog" that "that leads in-depth, award-winning investigations into the corruption that undermines our democracy, environment, and economic prosperity."[3][23]"

Paid sympathisers and useful idiots (13/03/22 17:26:17) Reply
    Trump and QAnon - I'm sure they have been paid or are being paid.

    Lots of others - specially academic commentators - more likely belong in the second category:

    "In political jargon, a useful idiot is a derogatory term for a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause without fully comprehending the cause's goals, and who is cynically used by the cause's leaders."
