Liz Wahl worked in Russia Today’s Washington, D.C., bureau, until today. She’s the grandchild of Hungarian refugees who fled the Soviet jackboot. Today she quit Russia Today on the air, because she said she could no longer work for a network that “whitewashes” Russia’s actions.

Wahl quit Russia Today one day after fellow DC anchor Abby Martin protested Russia’s Crimea invasion, and the network responded by saying it was sending Martin to Crimea.

On Twitter Tuesday night, Wahl publicly sided with Martin.

Too bad we don't have congressman like that who have the guts to stand up and insist on the dissolution of the racist black, Latino and Asian/Pacific Caucuses as well as demanding the arrest and deportation of illegal aliens.

I wonder whether Abby Martin has enough brains to resign and not to go Crimea right now. Or wait, she's a 9/11 truther, so she may actually go there to end up as "a first victim of vicious Ukrainian barbarians"—the sight of her mortal remains will be broadcast by RT to intimidate anyone who dares to speak up like she'd done.

To our Ukrainophobic and otherwise xenophobic friends, a word from the subject matter expert, if you will:
===================================
NEW YORK (JTA) — Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich, a chief rabbi of Ukraine, accused Russia of staging anti-Semitic “provocations” in Crimea in order to justify its invasion of the former Soviet republic.
At a press conference in the Manhattan office of the United Jewish Communities of Eastern Europe, Bleich compared Russia’s behavior to that of the Nazis prior to the Anschluss invasion of Austria in 1938.

Asked about anti-Semitism among Ukrainian nationalists, particularly two far-right parties that have been included in the new government, Bleich acknowledged concerns but said the Jewish community has received assurances from top government leaders that their safety will be protected.

Just whom did Martin and Wahl think they were working for? Hadn't they ever heard of the journalists who've gone up against Putin and wound up dead?

Many people here in Ukraine have been collaborating with Putin to form Russia's 5th column. They know exactly they eat somebody's blood and tears... and nonetheless, they keep doing what they're doing—some disregarding the truth about their actions and the ramifications thereof, the other just conjuring up contrived theories how they fight against fascists, "banderovtsy" etc.

Good for both of them. I hope some U.S. network will have the courage and intelligence to hire these two.

Well, this is good for her, her resignation. I had some fear that if she took the assignment, she would become the victim of a fatal "accident."
