Don't pretend that 'nothing' happened in Eastern Ukrainia - it only hurts when I laughed
So this, ...this is what the fighting is all about. For a little while I was tempted to say that it only hurt when I laughed, but the laughter died a quiet death in a surprisingly brief period of time, ...as the rest of the body count started piling on top of itself. But the increasingly biting satire remained, throughout. This movie is helpful to keep in mind ...every ...single ...time that some right-of-center political apologist tries to make pretend that 'nothing' happened with regard to Eastern Ukrainia.
