The lack of logic or rational would be funny if ppl weren't dying.

Texas says he's fighting because he likes communism. Then Texas turns around and says he thought that 1960s America was the best, even though that was literally the height of the cold war (e.g. a time when the US was actively and vehemently fighting the spread of communism). Texas, stop huffing the paint thinner...

anybody else find it ironic that he claims to fight fascism, but fights alongside Russia's interests? Russia where media is censored, journalists go missing and one can be arrested for protesting? Makes little sense to me ...

Texas is the last place on earth I ever thought that a communist could come from. Like, literally. Europe, North USA, Russia, China, anywhere *BUT* Texas...
