Harry Potter and Russian Propaganda

Comment: Very good article with a satirical bent.


"So, I just want to ask: who it is that the authors of this report intend to oppose? Russia Today and Sputnik? But all the Western media already oppose them. They don’t need any further motivation.

But even those Westerners who are not athletes and who don’t use email still feel helpless, because they have this horrifying Russian Propaganda coming at them from every side and chasing them every step of the way, even in their sleep. 

In the West, everybody, even little children, know that there is such a thing as Russian Propaganda. They know Russian Propaganda is worse than heroin and crack. They know one dose changes you forever, turning a handsome intellectual into a degenerate drunkard with bad teeth.

Western civilization can breathe a sigh of relief. The solution they provide is simple, effective and democratic.
