The world is perhaps accustomed to new year predictions, and to Russian propaganda. This year from former Russian PM Dimitri Medvedev, we got both.
There’s nothing the Russians love more than stirring the anti-American pot. They want to see the US in decline as a world power, even to the point of experiencing the kind of breakup they experienced in the old USSR. Yesterday former “Russian President” Dmitri Medvedev made a whole list of predictions, many of which are pretty bizarre.
There in the middle of the list at number 8 comes this prediction:
As a person who advocates daily for a free and independent Texas, I find this downright laughable. Here are several reasons why.
- There’s no way Texas would form an “allied state” with Mexico. We won’t be joining Oklahoma, Florida, or anyone else either. Why leave a union only to bind yourself to another union?
- We consistently make the point that Texas independence will happen without “civil war.” Only a Russian fool would think otherwise.
- The government of a free Texas will be defined by Texans, not “given to the GOP” or any other party.
- Elon Musk isn’t eligible to be president of the US, as a foreign-born citizen. He’s not going to be the president of Texas either.
Let’s close this one out with a nice Twitter rebuttal of Medvedev’s post.
