Daily Bread for 12.22.22: Inside the Russian Unit That Killed Dozens of Civilians

Good morning.

Thursday in Whitewater will be snowy with a high of 27. Sunrise is 7:23 AM and sunset 4:24 PM for 9h 01m 45s of daytime. The moon is a waning crescent with 1.1% of its visible disk illuminated.

 On this day in 1864, Savannah, Georgia, falls to the Union’s Army of the Tennessee, and General Sherman tells President Lincoln: “I beg to present you as a Christmas gift the city of Savannah.”

Caught on Camera, Traced by Phone: The Russian Military Unit That Killed Dozens in Bucha:

Exclusive phone records, documents, interviews and thousands of hours of video reveal how a Russian paratrooper unit killed dozens of people on one street in March.

These Russians soldiers, and the Kremlin’s dictatorship that sent them to murder in Ukraine, are enemies of our people, too. No number of fellow travelers on cable news, flacking Putin’s line, and defaming our Ukrainian allies, can change this plain truth. Disaffected populists of the extreme left and right are more agitated than they have been in many years, after seeing what they do not wish to see: that majorities in America understand right and wrong apart from the populists’ repeated distortions. 

Whitewater has only one populism, a populism of the right. (That Whitewater supposedly has a meaningful, left-leaning populism is a crackpot notion held only by a few overwrought rightwing populists. People of normal intellectual ability and emotional stability could live for hundreds of years and not make the mistake of thinking that way. See Identifying Types and Spotting Issues.)

In any event, a few tankies of the left and right, who see goodness in Putin and evil in Zelensky, are morally compromised.

Eugene Finkel wryly notes “[n]ot going to lie, the simultaneous tankie far-left and far-right meltdowns are a sight to behold.” 

Yes, yes they are.
