People were dragging Duncan Kinney yesterday for correctly pointing out that Freeland's troublesome repetition of fascist talking points just might be a thing she learned from her granddad. And here she is today, just...tweeting out a slogan literally invented by fascists.

Your girlboss finance minister and Prime-Minister-In-Waiting was raised in a fascist household and it shows.

I spent some time in Ukraine. Arguably no other place on earth has had a more tragic 20th Century than Ukraine. It's a complicated story.

Without going into too much detail, there are Ukranian people in my family and, uh....yeah. It is (though I would argue with you on the "most tragic" point). But there's a strain of post-Soviet fash running through their politics that no one really likes to talk about.

My grandparents left Ukraine in 1890. In America they wanted to identify as Americans, and they also adored Russian culture. One tragedy in modern Ukraine is the nationalists attempts to forbid teaching the Russian language and banning of Russian culture in a few areas. That is>

self-defeating. More people in Ukraine speak Russian than Ukrainian. (~ 39 to 32 million). Russia is no longer Communist. Dwelling on past wrongs is not how nations or individuals should live life. Where has it gotten Ukraine? The unhappiest (Gallup poll) & poorest Eur nation.
