John McCain and 200 Other War Mongers Banned from Entering Russia

(ANTIMEDIA) Washington, D.C. — Russian state media sources have announced that the Russian government has banned at least 60 American politicians and public figures from entering the country.

The report cited by RT, included another 140 non-U.S. persons seen as openly hostile toward Russia,

According to Izvestia, the new list includes mostly politicians, civil servants and other public figures known for their openly anti-Russian activities. About 60 people on the list are from the United States. Among these are Deputy National Security Advisor Caroline Atkinson, presidential advisers Daniel Pfeiffer and Benjamin Rhodes, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Robert Menendes and Senators John McCain, Daniel Coats and Mary Landrieu.

The notoriously bloodthirsty and irate McCain responded defiantly to the travel ban, telling Politico that “I couldn’t be more proud of being sanctioned by Vladimir Putin for standing up for freedom and human rights for the Russian people and against Putin’s deadly aggression in Ukraine. I will never stop my efforts to support democracy, free speech, and the rule of law in Russia.”

At face value, John McCain’s response is fairly admirable — if only it were true. McCain, in reality, has not been fighting for freedom and democracy; he’s been fighting for violent fascism in Ukraine and Islamic extremism in Syria and Libya. Sure, Russia is horrible on human rights and free speech, but the US was just caught torturing Americans at Homan Square in Chicago without due process, and is currently prosecuting our very own Anti-Media journalists for committing acts of ‘biased’ journalism in Fullerton, CA.

McCain’s statement, along with his actions, have zero moral authority and reek of hypocrisy.

  1. Let's not forget his recent theft of land sacred to the Apache people. This land is where the San Carlos Apache have VERY important ceremonies and McCain just sold to a f___ing British/Australian mining company! What an @sshole.

  5. USA is grabbing lands since they existed and If you talk about Crimea the vast majority of the Crimean population voted for Russia.I've seen many comments from Crimean people saying that what the west media says it's lies and everything was rightly and legal done and the vote results are not fake." violent fascism in Ukraine and Islamic extremism in Syria and Libya, on MCains head, bad reporting" You remember the invasion of Iraq just because Iraq is in the OPEC and has very very high oil production.Now guess who is there in Iraq extracting all oil,American companies.Exxon Mobil,Chevron etc and the same shit will happen in Syria If they succeed.

  7. When the revolution kicked in last February 2014, it was ordinary workers who went to the square who wanted political freedom, an end to corruption and to join the EU for a chance to get out of horrendous poverty. They were incredibly brave. Young women from the school going down to bring medical supplies, knowing that they could be shot. I know because I was there. I lived three miles from Maidan. McCain's motives are his own business but don't sell that revolution as being just fascists. It was a popular uprising.

  13. What part of "the majority of Ukrainians voted to stay with Russia" does McCain not understand? It's none of our business. Typical lying, stealing, warmongering POS elitist politician is what McCain is. I've decided he's never going to retire, he will drop dead at work, still spewing his nonsense.

  15. Dear Andy. Maybe you live too far away from Ukraine to be the best judge. Russia, as far as i can see is NOWHERE NEARLY as aggressive as mainstream media wants to show her. Demonizing everything they do. It seems that in Eastern Europe, right now, former local supporters of Nazis want to "persuade" other that they were the real freedom fighters and "commies" ruined everything, and that there were great atrocities done to them. Whic his somewhat true, but ridiculous if thinking what was happenign at that time. You see, my parents lved it, so i kind of know. In general i think, Europeans, should step in as we know what t means to get fucked by military. Actually everybody except USA citizens and you guys down under. So yeah, it seems Ukraine "nationalistic" side (these people are always dumbest n population) is leading Ukrain with the help of "Western allies" into better future. Me personally, and many other, understand NATO and USA is not peace, and freedom etc. We are pretty much "forced2 to be part of soemthign i dont beleive in. Least thng i am worried abotu is ,that "mean Russia" will do something to me.

  16. You living there, is it true there were quite few deaths of pro Russian journalists in Ukraine? I think it started as you say, but revolt was used (and spiced up) by always present american friends. at some point without realizing USA will wake up in a world where too many people will simply hate it. Tey really need "islamic or whatever " common enemy so we dont consider them enemies.
