Over on the powerful and influential American Thinker website, LR founder and publisher Kim Zigfeld reveals how the Putin propaganda machine is switching into overdrive to deluge the world with lies about the Sochi Olympics.
There’s great need for these lies, of course, since the truth is so very painful.
Within the past few days alone, the world has gaped slack-jawed as the oafish Russians have repeatedly allowed the Olympic flame to flicker out, and Russia’s woeful efforts to complete the Olympic venues are equally laughable (despite reportedly costing as much as billion dollars, the central stadium is still not close to being ready). Dozens of U.S. congressmen are openly calling for protests against Russia’s barbaric crackdown on homosexuals to occur at the games. In short, Russia’s attempt to host the games is an absurd fiasco, underlined by the total insanity of staging the games in a tropical beach resort that is surrounded by outraged terrorist groups.
