If Russia is in decline, why worry? Maybe, real worry is West's decline and that we manage things better? pic.twitter.com/WqG4uT5Pqt

Just in case you were wondering what kind of company Donald Trump keeps, his friends at the Russian embassy in London just tweeted a hilarious cartoon of gay pigs in a concentration camp.
“If Russia is in decline, why worry?” said the tweet. “Real worry is West’s decline.”
In the cartoon, Russia is depicted as a muscular happy bear, flexing over the camp that has a sign in the style of the “work will set you free” slogan over Auschwitz.
Elsewhere in Russian state propaganda, the Putin-controlled site RT.com has been feverishly pumping out anti-Clinton propaganda. A joint statement by 17 intelligence agencies has identified Russia as the likely source of recent theft of US documents, all of which appeared promptly on RT.
It’s no secret that Trump’s allies have close Kremlin ties, with advisors like Paul Manafort and Rick Gates working closely with the Putin government on a program that would secretly scan the eyeballs of subway commuters to monitor their movement. Manafort also helped install a Putin-controlled president in Ukraine.
Trump himself seems enamored of Putin’s style, lavishing him with praise throughout the campaign. He also suggested that Russia hack US intelligence (just a joke, his handlers later claimed) and said “If [Putin] says great things about me, I’m going to say great things about him … I’ve already said, he is really very much of a leader.”
Yeah, and look at what a marvelous country he leads! One where embassy officials feel perfectly comfortable depicting gays as pigs.
“In the cartoon, Russia is depicted as a muscular happy bear”
Some one needs to tweet the Russian embassy what it means to be a “bear” in gay culture 😉 Ignorance is a bliss!
Fact is, the GDP of Russia is about the same as the GDP of Spain.
Meh, I must be too decadent to get upset by the cartoon.
What you don’t see is that the bear in the picture is dying of self-inflicted cancer brought on after Russia’s democracy died and was replaced by an authoritarian regime. The rule of law in russia is a total joke. And just like the russian embassy, the rest of the russian government is just as impotent to restore it now that it’s gone.
It’s not just “embassy officials,” it’s people who fall under the heading of diplomats. Not too diplomatic, these ones, but it’s no surprise. Ever since Putin took over, Russia has been like a teenage hooligan — all fists, no brain, zits galore.
“Evil men have no songs.’ How is it that the Russians have songs?”
@Hussain-TheCanadian: A “Bear” does not mean that in Russian or Eastern European cultures at all. The bear has been used as a symbol for Russia since the 16th Century long before gay and bisexual men copied it.
if you loog closer at the pigs, they are piggy banks
@Captain proton: Yes. The pigs in the cartoon likely depict Jews. The rainbow flag added on an additional pathetic attempt to denigrate yet another population. It is hard to be deeply offended by something rendered in such a immature, unimaginative and imbecilic manner. Im so grateful my mother left Russia for the west as a young adult. With both a gay son and daughter, quality of life there for her and us would have been diminished.
@CaliKyle: No the pigs do not depict Jews. There are lots of world banks in Eastern European countries though.
