I debated whether to publish this now, as I enjoy that the site has an unbroken streak of Steak Knives articles. Ultimately, I felt this was too important to hold off on.
Chilean-American blogger Gonzalo Lira has died in a Ukrainian prison, Russian news agency TASS said on Saturday, citing a response it received from the US Department of State. The blogger’s death was first announced by his family on Friday.
Lira, 55 at the time of his death, lived in Kharkov and blogged as ‘CoachRedPill,’ but switched to YouTube commentary after Russia launched its military operation in Ukraine in February 2022. He was arrested by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) last May and accused of “discrediting” the Ukrainian leadership and the military.
“I cannot accept the way my son has died. He was tortured, extorted, incommunicado for 8 months and 11 days and the US Embassy did nothing to help my son. The responsibility of this tragedy is the dictator Zelensky with the concurrence of a senile American President, Joe Biden,” his father Gonzalo Lira Sr. wrote in a note published by The Grayzone.
Lira Sr. also reached out to X host Tucker Carlson, confirming the death of his son in Ukrainian custody. He had spoken to Carlson about the case in early December.
I’ve never been entirely supportive of the weird sexpest known as Gonzalo Lira. I remember back when Patriot Front was arrested – and unmasked – in Coeur D’Alene, Lira maintained for days after video of them being unmasked that only “bots/leftists,” would claim such nonsense.
It was so bad that I decided to make a little video out of it.
Gonzalo Lira was something of a joke, not helped by his “Coach Redpill” moniker that harkened back to his PUA days, and aged like milk. So when he was arrested in August, 2022 by the ZOGkraine state apparatus, it was difficult to play his oppression for anything other than laughs. I did something similar when they captured him again, in May, 2023. I suppose the best you could say about Gonzalo is that he made the right enemies, like this troon who was the official spokeswoman of “based Ukraine”.
Ironically, this is the opening paragraph of the August, 2022 article.
I received news a few days ago, perhaps a little less than a week, that Gonzalo Lira had been captured and killed by the Ukrainian Secret Police, also known as the SBU. These very trustworthy sources, random people on BANG, TRS’s forum, assured me that he was dead. Tears sprang to my eyes as this horrible truth was unveiled to me, but a new hope has arisen.
But now he actually is dead. Perhaps the Russia Today article can shed some light as to why.
Lira was a national of both the US and Chile. According to his thread from last July, the Chilean Embassy in Kiev at least tried to help him, while the US mission gave him only “empty bromides.” Lira suggested that this was because Victoria Nuland – currently the acting deputy to Secretary of State Antony Blinken – hated him personally.
Look, Based Weimerica, owner of Based Ukraine, just doesn’t have the leverage to get one of their own citizens out of Ukraine, a country that the US has given well over one hundred billion in aid to for the prosecution of this war. Ukraine is an independent actor here. They can torture US citizens and there’s just nothing that the US can do about it.
I had almost forgotten the Britney Griner-Viktor Bout trade deal, when I started writing this piece. A Black lesbian WNBA player caught with weed in Russia was deemed more important than Paul Whelan, a White ex-marine who caught espionage charges and has been languishing in jail since 2018, remaining imprisoned to this day. In exchange, Russia got an experienced arms dealer. The trade was so one sided that even Viktor Bout expressed his surprise at the deal.
The point is that the the (((US Democracy Class))) will move heaven and earth to get their own back, and their own is lesbian Black WNBA players who might be trannies. In contrast, should you cross the (((Ukrainian authorities))), Anthony Blinken and Victoria Nuland will laugh as they refuse to make one single phone call to Ukraine, or even send a text, demanding that you, a US citizen, be freed for the crime of doing actual journalism against the puppet regime in Ukraine.
Similarly, an unarmed US journalist named Shireen Abu Aqleh was murdered by Israeli Occupation Forces in May, 2022. Surely, this would prompt a vicious response from the US Government. We’ve been told ad naseum that anyone being mildly rude to domestic propagandists is basically committing genocide, and –
Turns out you’re a peasant who exists to be taxed dry and sent to die. This is obvious to anyone who hasn’t lived under a rock for the past ten years, and is the real reason behind the US Military recruitment numbers being so abysmal, not a failure of any one particular ad strategy. Even the relatively apolitical have figured out that we live in a semi-feudal society, they’re just chaffed so they can’t figure out, let alone organize against, those responsible.
Gonzalo Lira was a sexpest, hack journalist, and US
Citizen peasant, utterly without protection from the US State. He was killed for criticizing the Ukrainian regime with what would be clearly first amendment protected speech in America. As far as (((Anthony Blinken))), (((Victoria Nuland))), and all the rest are concerned, Zelensky did them a favour. Hell, they probably shared a toast over his death.
Lira is also a reminder that real journalists tend to get killed, as opposed to the professional disinformers who LARP as journalists while they tell us that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, Jussie Smollett really was holocausted by KKK members in Chicago, that Bashar Al’Assad gassed a bunch of babies for no reason, or anything else they dream up.
