I don't think this is about the USSR. I would be opposed if it were, but I think this is the narrative the left wants us to think.
As far as I know, Putin hasn't shown any hammer and sickles, but he has posed near an Imperial Russia flag.
And yes, I think it is alot more nuanced than Biden does, who literally said on camera "For God's sake, that man cannot remain in office." I'd like to remind the pot that it is at least as black as the kettle. In fact...
That man cannot remain in office. For God's sake.
As for assassination of Putin, we have about 30 or 40 years of US undermining Russia, even after the Cold War ended, USSR fell, and it was time to make peace and let Russia get back on its feet as a civilized country. Now all the Soviets are actors in Hollywood and in the halls of Senate, Congress, or the White House. They're creeping into Russia, and Russia doesn't want them near their country. I see a country that has been remarkably patient with us, and I fully support most actions it takes in response. We have become the evil Soviets now. So now it's our turn to be stopped. Go for it, Russia!
As for the picture, photographs can be doctored.
