The other day, Russian libertarians launched a #RussianLivesMatter action today in response to a police shooting. (The history behind this remains murky).
But there were misunderstandings with Ameriburgers for “appropriating” the BLM hashtag, which were supported by Russian SJWs.
So, Russian libertarians vs. US #BLM + Russian SJWdom.
But also involved in the conflict were Russian nationalists, who had come up with the #RussianLivesMatter hashtag a while ago to highlight abuses and human rights violations against ethnic Russians. Mikhail Svetov, the euphephile (of course) lolcow leader of Russia’s libertarians, has long attempted to outreach to Russian nationalists in an attempt to steal their discourse and audience. Hence the appropriation of their hashtag, which they in turn had originally appropriated from #BLM.
Now obviously most nationalists are not on board with the libertarian agenda, and didn’t appreciate Svetov’s intervention into their discourse, so this became Russian libertarians vs. US #BLM + Russian SJWdom vs. Russian nationalists.
Важное пояснение. Пикетная акция проходила под лозунгом #RussianLivesMatter и была посвящена борьбе с полицейским произволом в России. Мы не поддерживаем националистическую риторику Михаила Светова и используем Russian как россияне.

Finally, Russia’s ageing NPC libs at the likes of Echo of Moscow and Novaya Gazeta noticed the kerfuffle, and while supporting #RussianLivesMatter, rushed to disavow “Svetov’s nationalist” rhetoric, with Novaya Gazeta in particular clarifying that Russian stands for citizens of Russia, not ethnic Russians.
So now it was Russian libertarians vs. US #BLM + Russian SJWdom vs. Russian nationalists vs. Russian libs.
Which if nothing else opened up unparalleled avenues for trolling.
I am happy to announce I managed to intimidate one of the SJWs, a “Bashkirian non-binary lesbian” (pronouns: they/them) into submission, speechlessness, and account deletion.
Pro tip – conceal power level until it’s time to pounce!
This revelation of pure power was, apparently, enough to drive her from the Internet.
