The point being you are trying to hold us to a moral barometer while completely ignoring what the people on your side do, it's a false moral equivalency. It's a tactic the Left has been using to cuck the Right for decades, but I see right through it.

The point being my "crime" of opening a new Voat account five minutes ago is equivalent to fraudulently benefiting from the global collapse of the stock market?

'Member when the New York Times denied the Holodomor and shilled for Stalinism? I 'member.

one of the first Western Holodomor deniers was Walter Duranty, the winner of the 1932 Pulitzer prize in journalism in the category of correspondence, for his dispatches on Soviet Union and the working out of the Five Year Plan.While the famine was raging, he wrote in the pages of The New York Times that "any report of a famine in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda", and that "there is no actual starvation or deaths from starvation, but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial_of_the_Holodomor

You don't have the moral high ground.
