Straight out of the Handmaids Tale, the Russians want to build a place for conservatives to go to when they have no place left to go but HOME to Mother Russia. That’s right out of the Handmaids Tale New Bethlehem playbook, when Commander Lawrence wanted to build a small town to invite those who had escaped Gilead to come back.
Yes folks, that is exactly what Russia is trying to do here. They want to build this village for conservatives, the ones who reek of being Russian assets who are living in the United States who sow all manner of chaos, but once they are defeated, they have no place left to call home. Because to them it will all become a liberal run hellscape. So, what better way to get these conservative Russian sponsored scumbags to come home but to build a town just for them?
Their own Private Idaho, their own Utopian paradise, only it’s in Mother Russia, not the United States. That’ll show the world, won’t it?
Russian authorities will launch construction of a village outside Moscow for conservative-minded Americans and Canadians next year, the state-run RIA Novosti news agency reported Thursday.
Russia has for years positioned itself as a bastion of “traditional” values in contrast with Western liberalism as its relations with the West have deteriorated over its 2014 annexation of Crimea and 2022 full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Timur Beslangurov, a migration lawyer at Moscow’s VISTA Foreign Business Support, claimed that “around 200 families” wish to emigrate to Russia for “ideological reasons.”
“The reason is propaganda of radical values: Today they have 70 genders, and who knows what will come next,” RIA Novosti quoted Beslangurov as saying, echoing President Vladimir Putin’s frequently deployed grievances against Western countries’ comparative gender freedom.
“Many normal people emigrate and are considering Russia, but they’re faced with huge bureaucratic problems with Russia’s migration law,” he said.
He said the Moscow region administration has greenlit the construction of the expat village and that it will be financed by the relocating families.
The lawyer further claimed without offering evidence that “tens of thousands” of foreigners without Russian roots would like to move to Russia for similar ideological reasons.
The construction of a migrant village for Americans and Canadians has not yet been publicly announced by officials.
Russia, which has ranked among the worst countries for expats in recent years, experienced a major downturn in tourism and other foreign arrivals after the invasion of Ukraine.
Still, Federal Security Service (FSB) data recorded an uptick in visits for tourism, work, study and business to Russia in early 2023.
