  • Gonzalo Lira

    Chilean and American citizen, Author, YouTuber, dating, life coach, political commentator, pretty conservative. Before the conflict he was known as “Coach Red Pill.” He has quite a few videos under that name. Has been living in Kharkov Ukraine for a couple years. Has a Ukrainian wife and 2 kids. I’ve been subbed to his Patreon when his “American Taiwan” video really got me thinking. I didn’t agree with him on everything, but his videos entertained me. And he made you think. Good content.

    Anyway, he was in Kiev when the invasion first happened.

    He posted these 2 videos while there, and they got him in a lot of trouble with the Zelensky regime.

    He made it to his hometown of Kharkov, his wife and kids got out of Ukraine, and, he’s basically been posting videos while in hiding. It was really cool to see that perspective. And sometimes you could hear shelling.

    Now Scott Ritter reports that he’s been kidnapped, tortured, and murdered by the Kraken unit of the Azov Battalion. Or it could’ve been the SBU.

    I don’t know why he did what he did. It felt like he had a death wish at times. It made sense to just not say anything, get the hell out, then post your videos. About a year ago he posted a video saying he has a heart condition and he doesn’t have a lot of time to live. So he could’ve just been wanting to go out with a bang. His videos the last month, he’s been behaving erratically, he would take puffs on an unlit cigarette, just, some weird behavior.

    But he said his main principle is you call out evil when you see it. No matter what happens, no matter what it costs you, you call it out. I could imagine him cussing and spitting at the Azov neo nazis after getting tortured. He called Zelensky out on his evil bullshit a lot. It’s hard not to respect that. And it probably cost him his life.

    Just wanted to share his story. Pretty sad. Hope he’s still alive, but likely RIP Gonzalo.

    How a Sleazy American Dating Coach Became a Pro-Putin Shill in Ukraine

    He peddled sexist bile and toxic relationship advice within a subculture populated by men’s rights activists and incels—while living in Ukraine. Then the invasion started.

    But his “fair-and-balanced” accounts often involve wild claims about the supposedly obvious “evil” of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The comedian-turned-politician is a known “cokehead,” Lira has claimed—a man who uses his people as shields, has provided arms to criminals who have terrorized the streets of Kyiv, and has possibly “deliberately tried to have a nuclear accident” to pin it on Russia and possibly drag America into his war. Meanwhile, Lira has portrayed the Russian assault as provoked—and as “one of the most brilliant invasions in military history.” He has insisted that the invaders don’t want to harm civilians or civilian infrastructure and are in fact taking pains not to, that the Russian advance has not stalled but is in fact right on course, and that Russian domination will likely be good for Ukraine in the end.

    He has also shared widely debunked conspiracy theories to support or build out his narratives, many of them revolving around Russian claims that they’ve found evidence of American bioweapons labs and research in Ukraine. He has decried stories about Ukrainian resistance as obvious Western propaganda. And he has accused people who contradict his assessments of being idiots or paid shills.

    Independent experts who follow the conflict closely, of course, vigorously disagree.

    “His claims are nonsense,” Alexander Motyl, an expert on Ukrainian affairs at Rutgers University who’s been monitoring the conflict, told The Daily Beast.

    Not only do Lira's narratives fly in the face of a vast amount of credible on-the-ground reporting, they “fit perfectly with what Putin and his associates have been claiming for months,” as Motyl put it. In fact, Lira has been in such striking lockstep with Russian narratives on the conflict—sometimes even posting official government statements as definitive truths about it—that Russian propaganda outlets have used clips of him as a supposed source of external, on-the-ground support for its stories.

      Maybe this is the guy Trump was listening to when he came up with the idea that Putin's attack on Ukraine was "genius?"

        Why do men's rights activists cheer for Putin. Is he doing a good job suppressing feminism or something?

          Pussy Riot 🤘

          After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, feminist circles arose among the intelligentsia, though the term continues to carry negative connotations among contemporary Russians. In the 21st century some Russian feminists, such as the punk-rock band Pussy Riot, have again aligned themselves with anti-government movements, as in the 2012 demonstrations against President Vladimir Putin, which led to a lawyer representing the Russian Orthodox Church calling feminism a "mortal sin".[2]

                Yeah, and here’s his response to the hit piece.

                Of course you would post this, you’re no better than the pigs at the beast that tried (and probably succeeded) in getting him killed. You’re no better than the neo nazis that likely killed him. You support them.

                    I’m not an MRA, but I just don’t like nazis. I think all neo nazis should be killed. No trial, no nothing. Just kill them.

                    Im not like you, or any of the dipshit yellow blue avatar wearers, who try to ignore or deny or even brush off the fact that the team they support are full of despicable neo nazis. Not trump supporters that you’d call nazis, but literal American history x type, neo nazis. The most despicable pieces of human garbage that exist on this planet.

                          Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy was born to Jewish parents on 25 January 1978 in Kryvyi Rih, then in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.[15][16][17][18] His father, Oleksandr Zelenskyy, is a professor and computer scientist and the head of the Department of Cybernetics and Computing Hardware at the Kryvyi Rih State University of Economics and Technology; his mother, Rymma Zelenska, used to work as an engineer.[19][20][21] His grandfather, Semyon (Simon) Ivanovych Zelenskyy, served as an infantryman, reaching the rank of Colonel,[5] in the Red Army (in the 57th Guards Motor Rifle Division)[22] during World War II; Semyon's father and three brothers died in the Holocaust.[23][24][25][26] In March 2022 Zelenskyy revealed that his great-grandparents had been killed after German troops burned their home to the ground during a massacre. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volodymyr_Zelenskyy

                          Here's a bit of Zelensky's story. And now, Putin has convinced a great many Russians (and other suckers) that Zelensky is the head of some kind of giant, Ukrainian nazi party. Absolutely amazing what people can be induced to believe. Probably the biggest failing of mankind.

                                    There are nazis in America too. And in Europe. And in Australia. And Canada...

                                    Maybe if you stopped swallowing Putin-spew, you wouldn't lose your mind so easily?

                                      In 2017, the Azov group was estimated at more than 2,500 members, but was estimated to be 900 members in 2022. In 2019, the Democrats requested they be classified as a foreign terrorist organization. The Republicans refused to sign on. So, now this small group that Republicans refused to acknowledge existed, is the real reason Putin is invading?

                                      There are more Nazis in Charlottesville. Or, come visit Harrison, Arkansas. You can easily find more than 900 Nazis in this country.

                                      Think about it. Why would a Jewish man get 73% of the vote in a Nazi country? 😂

                                        Wow. You’re actually comparing a bunch of back woods inbred dipshits in America, Canada, Europe and Australia to an actual, real, nazi battalion that has been integrated into the Ukrainian National Guard in 2014?

                                        Should we also integrate a battalion of neo nazis into our own military Roh? Or, maybe we do it, but install a Jewish president first so we can just deny it.

                                        Then we could be more like Ukraine.

                                              That seems rather ironic.
