In this topsy-turvy world, in which the west becomes ever more communist and the east becomes ever more capitalist, Gerard Depardieu has just defected to Russia.
You’ll notice that not a single western MSM news agency (that I know of) used the word ‘defection’, when reporting this story, instead telling us about what mafia-gang politicians in France think of Depardieu’s ‘treachery’ in refusing to fund their criminal protection racket that pays them all such handsome salaries, expenses, and pensions.
Perhaps this is how Pravda and Izvestia used to report defections the other way around, in the 1970s, back in the USSR.
And if you thought I wrote that last sentence just so I could squeeze in a Beatles lyric, then that would be a hard day’s night.
