Putin still kills journalist. I know some of his admirers here will be along to tell me that all governments do that, that George Soros kills them too, and Putin’s a swell fellow. But really conservatives see Putin for the narcissistic nut job that he is.

Speaking in English. I’d be more impressed if it was Russian with subtitles.

Perhaps if a shirtless Putin was standing with his boot at her throat you'd be more impressed.

She’s a 9-11 troofer. Perhaps she thinks George W. Bush actually planned this.

Hadn’t heard about her before this.

Checking out some other vids of her.

She calls out MSNBC, Rachel Maddow and Bill Maher as Democratic party lackeys.

Complicated woman I guess, but surely brave.

Cheers.

Looked at some of her other work and she appears to be a nutcase who just got it right this time.
It is not good to invade the people of another country; yes we agree on that.

So RT is Russian state controlled pro Putin propaganda?

Here's what RT ended up saying:

"Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn’t beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air. This is the case with Abby’s commentary on the Ukraine. We respect her views, and the views of all our journalists, presenters and program hosts, and there will be absolutely no reprimands made against Ms. Martin.

In her comment Ms. Martin also noted that she does not possess a deep knowledge of reality of the situation in Crimea. As such we’ll be sending her to Crimea to give her an opportunity to make up her own mind from the epicentre of the story."

Her mind seems pretty made up to me, judging by the video. I guess she'll get sent to Crimea and get shunted out of everything, then either get quietly laid off later for some bogus reason or die quietly in her sleep.

Wait, is that an option? I mean, I would never wish harm to Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow, but maybe just one little beating? Please?

I think if the beatings don’t leave marks they should be allowed. That and waterboarding. /s

Watch as she isn’t murdered. She agrees 100% with Kerry, Obama, Clinton, McCain, Lindsey, and Ashton. If she’s really brave she’ll go to Kiev and opine against the firebomb throwing racist, nazi-saluting, Jew hating, Svoboda Party. THEN her life would actually be in danger.

Putin was right not to let that violence in Kiev take root in Crimea.

I had the same question.

I think he means that it’s ‘easy’ being ‘gutsy’ when there’s no immediate threat, but if Putin was standing in front of her she might not be as ‘brave’.......................

Not guilty on this issue.

Guilty on “crazy” on other issues.

Not guilty on ugly at all.

She is apparently a former Community Organizer from Oakland, CA. So temper your expectations.

Why do you think she got a job with RT in the first place? That being said, there’s more than a strong whiff of antiwar/lefty/moonbat to her.

Putin is the dictator Obama would like to be, if he had a set.

I agree. And the Freepers who admire Putin who apologize for his chauvinism in Ukraine are cut from the same cloth as those who admired Stalin and the Soviets. They’re the type people who psychologically are well suited as catamites in prison and have no real principles. Their fondness for Putin is like a teen who admires a pop rock star and never notice he’s a nerd with his shirt off. And they cannot accept that both Obama and Putin are wrong. A simple and simple minded answer is all they want or need. They’ve never read or understood a single idea why conservatives are different than liberals. They’re content to be the dumbed down conservatives.

I don’t think we admire Putin per-se so much as the abstract concept of having a President with actual testicles.

I was going to say that she reminds me of a liberal girl I dated from San Francisco. We broke up when I compared William J. Clinton supporters to mucous from his nose. She was beautiful too and guilty on various counts of crazy. So, I know about that already.

Well, lots of people admire leaders with brazen and cruel use of power politics. They’re admired when the succeed, like Hitler was. It has nothing to do, though, with common sense. The fact that Obama has no balls doesn’t mean you go out and lose good judgment so much that you cheer for a bully with balls.
