I only ever use emoticons sarcastically, though that's sort of a byproduct of the fact that I prefer not to use either, generally. Emoji I'll use genuinely from time to time, especially the hearts and such rather than faces.

It's simple; it's a popular movement. Ukrainian nazis are very good at hijacking popular movements to force a rightward tilt, as they've done at least twice in Ukraine proper. It's easy to give the perception that the right is populist and anti-oppression when the left supports the oppressors, giving them the perfect propaganda opportunities.

To the average man protesting, does the 'left-wing' man supporting China or the 'right-wing' man supporting you seem more appealing? Tankies are counter-productive in this way. The same applies to Social Democratic governments as well, they help give the right very strong propaganda by simply railing against the status quo.

I've been informed this was bait made as a joke to see who in the comments would genuinely defend it.
