Putin’s internet iron curtain tightens. Russia will block and ban Instagram starting Monday
Instagram….CANCELLED


One week after placing a ban on Facebook in Russia, the country’s communications censorship agency Roskomnadzor announced it will ban Instagram, too.

What about the commie style of the big tech oligarchs of the west? Why do you fail to mention that? Is this dust up between western corporations against Russia being used by those with a penchant for Chinese-style totalitarianism to get the people in the west that use their products to forget that they are siding with the Chinese communists? Are we supposed to forget about the long history of the Democrat Party giving aid and comfort to the Soviet KGB during the Cold War?

Exactly. Your kid's teacher in junior high teaching Critical Race Theory to your kids is more of a communist than Putin even when Putin lived in the USSR, not current Russia.

That word salad means that i see a real problem with those who are compromised by foreign intelligence agencies running the show and getting Americans involved in foreign entanglements, that is is a bad idea to allow potential traitors to operate your nation and run it into the ground after stealing an election, and fortify the theft with the very type of censorship that you pretend to decry.

Despite the lack of reversal concerning Democrats and their proclivities toward communist authoritarianism and cultural subversion, put into motion years ago by the KGB, if what you say about the reversal of politics in Russia is true, of which I remain skeptical, then it is entirely possible that the Russians are engaged in censorship right now because they are wary of western powers now trying to reinfect their nation with communism, deploying the same methods that their KGB engaged in when they set these psycho Democrats into motion all those years ago.

The United States IS an authoritarian nanny state.

You can argue you can watch content censored by US corporations, MSM, and social media.

I'm sure that is equally true of Russians.

What makes you a typical under thirty clueless bitch, is you purposefully confuse communism/Marxism with cultural Marxism.

The United States claims to be capitalist when government policy like Critical Race Theory is full blown cultural Marxism and a more pernicious form of Marxism than the Soviet Union on its wort day.

Re: Putin’s internet iron curtain tightens. Russia will block and ban Instagram starting Monday
There are now more than 5000 blocked and censored sites now in Russian.

Here is a current list

[link to www.top10vpn.com (secure)]

Since Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb 24, there have been over 5,000 additions to Russia’s internet denylist. Our analysis of blocked domains revealed that there were significant numbers of Ukrainian news sites banned in Russia since then, under order of the Office of the Prosecutor General.

It’s clear that the Kremlin wishes to control the narrative of its invasion and prevent the Russian people from accessing news reports from Ukrainian sources.

The Russian government is also blocking Russian news sites whose editorial stance is anti-war.

Russia is also now trying to block all VeePeeN services to prevent Russians from accessing any of the sites that they have blocked, just like China is doing. Use of the software is permitted but accessing blocked content is illegal. With 15 VPservices currently officially banned for not complying with Russian government demands, it can be difficult to find a trustworthy VP that still works in Russia.

This is Russia's biggest independent media sites that is not controlled by Russian State media.

It's gone now, thanks to the Russian censorship agency, Roskomnadzor. All remaining news sources are owned and operated by the Kremlin.

If you want to defend what Putin is now doing with government censorship, go right ahead.

But tell us this and assuming you are America: do you want to trash our First Amendment and set up a government censorship agency like Roskomnadzor that has the power to block, censor and cancel internet sites?

I am an American, and as pro First Amendment as it gets.

Now, do you support U.S. corporations, beholden to China, using "soft" power to effectively engage in cancel culture against an entire nation's civilian population in order to try to affect a regime change? Do you support the same use of this "soft" power to cancel those in a similar fashion domestically? Do you see how the methods that may have determined Russia's response to kick certain media out of its nation has been used domestically to effectively censor and cancel people in violation of the principles of the First Amendment, and how those who are seeking to use it against a nuclear power are now playing with fire?

GLPtards: "Wow censorship is awesome. Putin is based! I bet he's blocking the internet so the U.S. deep state doesn't know he's rescuing children from their satanic trafficking tunnels."

Same question:

Why do you want to live in an authoritarian nanny state where the government decides what you are and are not alllowed to see?

Works great in communist dictatorships like China and North Korea though, doesn’t it?

Why do you pretend to decry these things, while you are working to set these very things up in the States?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82454405


Pretend what? I support and have defended our Constitution, including our First Amendmend. No, I do not believe in government censorship and blocking internet sites by an official government agency who decides what we are allowed to see.

Good, then you would agree that Russia’s official censorship and blocking of internet sites, just like China and North Korea practice, is wrong and would be an affront to our First Amendment.

So is that word salad a defense of communist dictatorship style media censorship and cancel culture that Putin is now practicing? Do you want to live in a country like that?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80913760


No. That "word salad" means I am having a real hard time seeing the difference, particularly when we now have corruptocrats beholden to China and censoring Americans running the show. It's funny how many of these Democrats were compromised by the KGB back in the day, and are making all the wrong moves, while screaming for war with their former handlers.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82454365


Since the fall of the Soviet Union, there has been a nearly a complete reversal of politics.

The Russian Federation is now Christian, doesn't allow LGBTQ special rights, and as far as values more like 1950 America.

The Democrat Party, institutions and media in 2022 America are worst cultural Marxist than the Soviets ever were.

How the fuck did that happen? Subversion, one day at at a time.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82447322


Despite the lack of reversal concerning Democrats and their proclivities toward communist authoritarianism and cultural subversion, put into motion years ago by the KGB, if what you say about the reversal of politics in Russia is true, of which I remain skeptical, then it is entirely possible that the Russians are engaged in censorship right now because they are wary of western powers now trying to reinfect their nation with communism, deploying the same methods that their KGB engaged in when they set these psycho Democrats into motion all those years ago.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82454477


Its an information war.

All sides use the same tactics of censorship. In the US, where the constitution guarantees first amendment right of free speech, the work around is laws against "hate speech," and allowing private companies to crush free speech.

One should remember that Facebook, Instagram, Youtube were all allowed in Russian until the West decided to cancel Russia from the world financial system.

I have to laugh at these fucking shills trying to make the West the good guys after two years of a phony scamdemic and a year of forced killer vaccine mandates.

Yeah, I believe motherfuckers who did their best to kill me and my family and my country.

Putin didn't do this. The American political, professional medical and corporate class did it.
