Saker rant: A 5th column in the Russian media? Absolutely! | The Vineyard of the Saker

Is there a 5th column in the Russian media?

Hell yeah!

It is literally all over the place!

Like during the latest Q&A with President Putin. I don’t know if anybody else noticed this, but it really pissed me off. Check out who got to ask a question from the studio:


Khakamada Venediktov Kudrin Remchukov

For those who don’t know these faces – they are some of the worst “demofreaks” in Russia. Meet:

Irina Khakamada: bigtime Nemtsov groupie, professional protester and feminist.

Alexei Venediktov: editor in Chief of the rabidly anti-Russian “Ekho Moskvy” (Echo of Moscow) Radio Station, aka “Ekho Matsy” (Echo of the Matso) due to its russophobic political line. He is actually a “true believer” in western democracy

Alexei Kudrin: one of the figureheads of the Atlantic Integrationists, a hardcore market economist, forever offended since he was fired (by Medvedev, of all people!).

Konstantin Remchukov: owner and editor in chief of Nezavisimaya Gazeta, who has received the official imprimatur of the Radio Free Europe Radio Liberty.

Just look at their faces! They have that “eternal sadness of the professional dissident” in their eyes. Clearly, they “suffer” from the “regime” and they feel like 21st century versions of Sakharov and Solzhenitsyn. They also feel hurt, because the barbaric, reactionary and ungrateful Russian people never gave them the support they feel that their courageous stance deserves, and so, not a single one of their candidates made it into the Duma. Not one!
