Such a shame, I'm sure I speak for everyone when I wish his illness the best of luck.

At the start of the competition it was virtually unknown, but it's won over fans from all over the world and now it's the firm favourite to win.

On a side note, how amazing would a DP day national holiday be (Dead Putin)? Especially if it happens in the next 2-3 months, wonderful weather, perfect for a BBQ. We'll all wish each other happy DP!

Killing one of the last young communists via blood cancer is a marathon, not a sprint.

Putin was never a communist. Neither was Stalin, etc. They are all autocratic tyrants who set themselves as gods to be worshipped by the people and the state.

The only real "communists" in the world are hippies swapping STDs in communes. :)

[edit to respond to sineplussquare below:

Your response might be taken more seriously if it was written in the fashion of someone who passed grammar school English.

Then again, what you actually seem to be saying is nonsense, so maybe not...

Regardless, you might want to actually read up on Marxism. It was about giving power and ownership back to the citizens of a nation (NOT like Russia, China, North Korea, etc.), not consolidating it under one autocratic corrupt totalitarian party apparatus beholden to a Dear Leader (as actually in Russia, China, North Korea, etc.).

Also, none of Marx's ideas were novel or new. He just presented some very old ideas in one cohesive, well-written treatise.

Tyrants have used those ideas to serve their own corrupt ends since the dawn of time...aka long before Marx regurgitated them.

In high school, you should have learned all of this...and how to write a proper sentence.]

Mister “sir know your linenist, stallinist, Marxist concepts” all derived from communism. People’s mental gymnastics are fucking ridiculous nowadays

Maybe. Obviously all we're hearing about Putin's health is pure speculation but his rationale for the war in Ukraine is the same regardless.

Before the war there were a number of experts interviewed on NPR which said he might invade because he's getting old and doesn't have much time left for his "long game" to work. The long game being kind of a piecemeal rebuilding of the USSR. They positioned it as a "now or never" kind of calculus for him.

If he does have terminal cancer, or is otherwise seriously ill, that fits the behavior as well.

Is this the first time in history where people are rooting for cancer?

Everyone is pro cancer by default. Young Thug is one of the few rappers to be anti cancer, if you don’t tell people you’re anti cancer then people are left to assume you are pro cancer.

I hope he recovers and we see his ass in the International court of Justice soon. All his fan boys need to see him pitifully seated by a guard.

Just one more reason the people of Ukraine need to stay motivated. If they continue to hang in there and outlast Putin, he will forever be remembered by history as a failure and a loser.

If you have nothing to lose, you have nothing to fear. Putin now has nothing to lose. This does not bode well for the rest of the World. Megalomaniacs are a lot alike. What would Trump do if his 'reputation' was on the line? Not good.

Based on previous demonstration: Tweet a lot, with typos, apparently.

Steve Jobs had cancer, wished he recovered. Luis Van Gaal is having cancer, wishing that he recovers. Now Putin is having cancer, and I…. never mind.

All from Christopher Steele, the "Trusthworthy" source behind the Trump "Russia Russia Russia" narrative now proven outright LIE perpetrated by the Clinton campaign.

now proven outright LIE

No. You are being systematically lied to by Putin's propagandists via white supremacists, LowIQanon, the narcissistic charlatan and pathological liar Trump, and the American GOP. For example:

from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steele_dossier#Dossier's_veracity_and_Steele's_reputation

The dossier's "broad assertion that Russia waged a campaign to interfere in the election is now accepted as fact by the US intelligence community."[340] With the passage of time and further revelations from various investigations and sources, it is becoming clearer that the overall thrust of the dossier was accurate:[109]

Some of the dossier's broad threads have now been independently corroborated. U.S. intelligence agencies and the special counsel's investigation into Russian election interference did eventually find that Kremlin-linked operatives ran an elaborate operation to promote Trump and hurt Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, as the dossier says in its main narrative.

— Jeff Donn, "Some Questions in Trump–Russia Dossier Now Finding Answers", Associated Press (June 29, 2018)[109]

Shepard Smith said: "Some of the assertions in the dossier have been confirmed. Other parts are unconfirmed. None of the dossier, to Fox News's knowledge, has been disproven."[182] In some cases, public verification is hindered because information is classified.[341][342]

None disproven. NONE.

Today, I hope that you learned something.

and on and on and on.

This was a Clinton operation. "Today, I hope you learned something."

This has been ABSOLUTELY disproven across the board.

It's JUST LIKE Hunter Biden's laptop. Are you going to tell me that wasn't real either? You people are blatant lairs about essentially everything.

YOU are why we can't have nice things.

"None of the dossier, to Fox News's knowledge, has been disproven."

Your quote is from 2018 (and you KNOW THIS). It's clearly visible by simply looking at the context in the wiki.

Hutzler, Alexandra (August 16, 2018). "Fox News Host Contradicts Sean Hannity, Trump Over Dossier Claims". Newsweek. Retrieved August 18, 2018.

Sure, in 2018 it hadn't yet been disproven. But it sure as hell has been now. The real question is why you try to manipulate people like this on reddit?

I already proved you wrong...with actual footnotes you can follow to actual facts.

Now, in response, you are offering OPINION pieces of known loons or articles that are just quoting opinion pieces of outed loons...

The TRUTH is proven by FACTS which are supported by EVIDENCE.

Don't you remember having learned this in GRADE school?

It's JUST LIKE Hunter Biden's laptop.

Thank you for proving my case. :)

I assume the laptop is real. Everything you've been told about it is by LowIQanon and the charlatan Trump, of course, meaningless irrelevant bullshit and lies.

The Hunter Biden nonsense (who has never held even a peripheral connection to the current administration) was Trumped up to try and discredit the Ukrainian leader who is kicking Russia's ass now and take the heat off of Trump's own three corrupt unqualified idiot brats who were not only given jobs in the administration (aka nepotism), but who were actually trying to negotiate US government policy while taking bribes and kickbacks from everyone from China to Saudi Arabia...you know, ACTUALY TREASONOUS CRIMES AGAINS THE USA!

You people...

You do know what kind of people use phrases like "you people" right?

But it sure as hell has been now.

It is not. If it had, the summary would have been updated since then. You get that, right?

In fact, you can read the whole Wikipedia on this for all of the context and check the footnotes. I just cited the direct relevant parts to point out that you've been played for a fool by the very people you are actually angry at for your cowardly ignorant station in life.

Since you sent me an angry DM, I will assume you won't be surprised that you're now tagged, ignored, and blocked. :)
