Hohols Bombing Russian Voting Stations While Zelensky Refuses to Let His Own Citizens Vote

Terrorism is what you do when you’re losing.

What the Hohols are doing now is basically like a child who lost a game of checkers flipping over the table and crying.

This is not mature adult war behavior.


Russia accused Ukraine on Saturday of using “terrorist activities” to try to disrupt its presidential election and former President Dmitry Medvedev decried as “traitors” the scattered protesters who have tried to set fire to voting booths and pour dye into ballot boxes.

The Ukraine war has cast a shadow over voting in the election, which is all but certain to hand President Vladimir Putin six more years in the Kremlin but has been marked by sporadic acts of protest.

On the second of three days of voting, the Russian foreign ministry said Kyiv had “intensified its terrorist activities” in connection with the election “to demonstrate its activity to its Western handlers and to beg for even more financial assistance and lethal weapons”.

It said that in one such incident, a Ukrainian drone had dropped a shell on a voting station in a Russian-controlled part of Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia region.

The state-run TASS news agency quoted a local election official as reporting no damage nor injuries when the explosive device landed five or six metres (yards) from a building housing a polling station before it had opened in a village about 20 km (12 miles) east of the city of Enerhodar.

Reuters could not independently verify the incident.

There was no immediate comment from officials in Ukraine, which regards the election taking place in parts of its territory controlled by Russia as illegal and void.

Meanwhile the head of the electoral commission, Ella Pamfilova, said that in the first two days of voting there had been 20 incidents of people trying to destroy voting sheets by pouring various liquids into ballot boxes, as well as eight cases of attempted arson and a smoke bomb.

Commenting on the incidents, Medvedev said those responsible could face treason sentences of 20 years.

“This is direct assistance to those degenerates who are shelling our cities today,” he posted on social media, referring to Ukrainian attacks.

This also seems to be symbolic. You know that Zelensky canceled his elections, which is illegal under the Ukraine constitution.

I don’t really think Russia should have elections. I don’t totally understand the point. Well, I actually do understand the point: it’s a relic from when Russia had a desire to do business with the West. They adopted this democracy system of voting every few years. It’s fine, whatever, Putin has 90% support, so no one can really say it’s fake, just that it’s maybe unnecessary.

I think the referendums in the New Russian Territories were necessary though, so it’s nice for these people to be able to go out and vote for the man who liberated them.

As a general matter, however, countries opposed to the US should start to phase out this whole voting thing, in my view. It’s not a valid method of petitioning grievances, at least not when suffrage is universal. Universal suffrage democracy is literally just a gigantic scam.

I guess I need to repeat this more often: in the United States, at its founding up until the turn of the 20th century, only landowners were allowed to vote. When you allow peasants to vote, anyone can pay them, or whip them into a frenzy over some sort of nonsense. Now, the media has full control of the minds of the peasants.

If landless peasants have a problem, they should have a method of having it addressed, but they don’t have any right to participate in deciding how a government is run. It’s just stupid.
