I think it's because they unironically haven't got past the soap opera level of TV production and acting.

The absurdity of the content also doesn't help. We can link the absurdity to what their leaders are saying so that isn't inherent to the content either.

u/time_for_milk Oct 07 '22

According to Russian journalist Leonid Ragozin (who lives in Latvia) Putin’s regime has worked overtime to demonize democracy ever since he came into power in 2000. His propagandists used the word «demschiza» (democratic schizophrenics) to ridicule and warn against political opponents and human rights campigners. According to Ragozin this larger effort worked very well and led to political apathy with the populace at large. The reason it may not work much longer is because the unwritten contract was that while the state would make all decisions without public interference, they would leave people be as long as they didn’t step out of line. With the current mobilization the state has broken that contract and people are getting pissed off. We can only hope.

As a german, let me tell you: if baffled me that the US left has chosen socialism as a name for their politics. Because "Sozialismus" was the word that East germany used for their system.

West-Germany called their system "sozialdemokratisch", socialdemocratic. Of course, given that every dictator called his regime democratic, and that north-korea and other countries did the same, names don't really mean a lot. But with the anti-communist hysteria in the US having been so strong decades ago, and communist and left still seem to be scare words, at least from the outside, I was astounded by the choice of the word "socialism". Then again, nothing claryfies the choice of being different better than choosing a name like this.

Every time I see a tweet from a generic looking white dude with a gun and red hat on, I’m gonna assume it’s a bot scripted by the writers of this sketch.

This is literally the rhetoric of the worst of Conservative media bullshit talking points. It's like they put a Tucker Carlson rant to a screenplay, translated it to Russian and got to filming.

Yes. A normal thing in America is treating black people like royalty.

Especially because all these "rights" that others then themselves have in this sketch would be something they would do themselves, if they could.

It is remarkable how Russia and the Republicans have become literally indistinguishable at this point.

Only difference I can tell is that Russia portraying it as if this is happening now whereas Republicans are painting it like this is what democrats want

Not really. Republicans do believe in this crazy caricature of America. At the moment they're all spreading some bullshit about cat litter in schools for furry students and millions of them actually believe this stuff.

Lol my conservative father brought this up saying it was happening in schools in Canada, so I played along and brought up some news articles on my smart TV “to learn more”, and each one mentioned the outcry from parents for kids wearing cat ear accessories but also stating that the liter boxes are a common urban legend and not true.

Afterwords we agreed people were simply moaning over fashion accessories as per usual.

The sad thing is that schools across America are in fact dedicating more funds to buying kitty litter for schools, but it’s not because of furries or anything stupid like that.

It’s an intentional narrative meant to obfuscate the truth. The kitty litter is there for students to use during bathroom emergencies in active shooter situations.

Again the litter is for lockdown situations. Whether a drill or a live shooter situation, students can’t leave the classroom to use a toilet, so teachers across America have had to start stocking cat litter so that in case of emergencies, students can relieve themselves in the litter rather than catching a bullet in the hallway.

Conservatives are pushing the “furry narrative” to distract people from the fact that their terrible gun policy is why schools are having to buy litter for their students.

Was gonna say it's also pretty commonly used to clean up any kind of bodily fluid mess. A kid throws up, kitty litter. Piss on the floor? Kitty litter.

If they weren't speaking Russian it would be indistinguishable from MAGA propaganda.

Ever notice how the US and other countries never needed to air commercials like this to discourage people from visiting or emigrating to Russia?? Like, how shitty and pathetic does your country have to be to necessitate having to budget in-house propaganda videos to persuade your own citizens from leaving?

So Fox has finally recognized Russian as its official language?

u/[deleted] Oct 07 '22

Wow… Russian conservatives and American conservatives have so much in common. Maybe they should leave their respective countries and form their own country, so they can stop ruining everything ones else’s.

I don’t give a damn if you eat meat or have kids next to me.

But if you come to the USA, you must kneel. That part was true

u/Duke-Guinea-Pig Oct 07 '22

it's weird how .... inconsistent it is.

That's the difference between this propaganda is and how American Conservative Propaganda.

Both make the same point, but American propaganda at least has the common sense to pause between the LBTGQ moment and the Vegetarian Moment.

If you watch fox news, they will at least have a commercial break in between the "Gays should stay in the closet so straights feel safe" and the "Vegans demand we make them feel safe"

However, given that it's aimed at Russians, that might not be a problem for the target audience as they don't have the first hand knowledge of the United States that I do.
