Xenophobia International

I never cease to be amazed at the "parallell universe" quality of Russian and American societies. The latest example is the march today in Moscow by a variety of groups headed by the "Movement Against Illeagal Immigration". This group with tacit support from the government is headed by a fellow named Alexander Byelov , who states,

"The rights of Russians are being infringed in their own land and we intend to stop it."

If this guy isn't a soul brother to the American Minutemen group I don't know who is.He should probably be made an honorary member. Everyday Americans and Russians seem to have more in common, massive numbers of nukes, nationalist (neo-con) kooks, failed wars, and a curious indifference to their own civil liberties and democracies. Привет Товарищ по несчастью!
