Kill Yr Idols:

He has also accused the Syrian rescue group the White Helmets of being “fake,” against all evidence to the contrary; said the Syrian opposition faked chemical attacks by Bashar al-Assad, a contention no credible independent expert agrees with; and recently wrote an open letter to the Ukrainian first lady, Olena Zelenska, calling on her to encourage her husband to sue for peace with Russia — a move that would be tantamount to acquiescing  to Putin.

This does not go far with Waters. “Maybe…” he wonders, before throwing a curveball. “Don’t forget, I’m on a kill list that is supported by the Ukrainian government.

And Russia should not have been encouraged to invade the Ukraine [Waters insists he is not making a political point by saying “the Ukraine”] after they tried for 20 years to avoid it by suggesting diplomatic measures to Western governments.”

In other words, it’s NATO’s fault that Putin decided to invade Ukraine. 

He hasn’t gone the full Greenwald — he still opposes Trump and Bolsonaro –but half is bad enough.

I’m reminded that according to Mark Blake’s book, Waters used to mercilessly deride Richard Wright for being a bougie sellout for having a summer home, right up until the point at witch he purchased a much nicer one.
