Its easy to get when you think of it in cold real politic terms.Indeed, and this is one of the reasons why I've taken a Pro-Russia stance. I get Pro Ukraine Leftists, because at least that tends to have a cohesive world view, but Western Conservatives/Rightists doing so makes no sense unless they're a Boomer unwilling to move past the Cold War. The litmus test for me was, why are Hillary Clinton, George Soros, etc all backing Ukraine and against Russia? I've never seen a plausible argument against that, and was all I needed to see for bias confirmation in of itself.
If the people who hate me and want my demise are supporting something, and putting a lot of money into it too, then it is only natural to take the opposite side to fuck with them.
Russia has been a pain in america's ass since the communist revolution (Before that we actually got along pretty decently) This is a chance to fuck with a rival on the cheap.
