    I find it interesting that the attackers aren’t so brave as to let themselves be identified. So they wear masks. How very Klanish of them.

    The masks are a typical feature of “nationalist” thugs in post-communist countries. They just aren’t brave enough to show their faces when they decide to beat up somebody.

    I suspect that in some cases they don’t want to show their faces because they are police or militia.

    You’d think that Russians would have enough reasons to hate the Nazis that they would not imitate them, but it seems you would be wrong.

    Well I, for one, am not going to feel sorry for the Central Caucasians when the lackeys of the State start turning on them. First they came for the homosexuals…

    So sad to see the mistakes of the past repeating themselves in Russia. I cannot grasp why people refuse to see the buddings of totalitarianism in their country. I hope the Russian people wise- up before they… oh wait… Putin. Nevermind. They’re f’d.

    To avoid repeating history, you have to know history. These people don’t know their own history, and there is little chance that it will be taught to them in the near future.

    Well, actual Russian Neo-Nazis do exist.
    Who are the “Central Caucasians”, though?

    My shorthand for the Russians who come from the North Caucasian Federal District and a rough parallel to a marginalized minority group from the original quote… then they came for the gypsies…

    People from that region of Russia are already often the target of the neo-nazis you mentioned; although some are terrorists.

    The whole situation is eerily reminiscent of Europe prior to WWII with the terrorist socialist/anarchists justifying increasingly authoritarian/nationalist regimes in western Europe.

    Except that it’s all happening in the last real Empire left on earth.
