I hope Russell Bentley doesn't get a bullet through the neck like Orwell did.  But if he does I hope he survives to write about it like Orwell did.

I hope too he is being his authentic self and isn't just another SSE like the rest of us.  Following a script of heroes he once imagined himself to be like from the Spanish Civil War.  As a teenager in high school. 

A touch of insight tells me the act of being photographed smiling with a high powered rifle is a bit of self deception.  A rush of deception writers are especially prone to.

How many people really lead authentic lives free of unconscious script and self deception.  We all think we do.

RB is definitely a for real guy in Donetsk.  He has a bunch of vids up on YouTube.  Search it.

Russell "Texac' Bentley: Hero of the Revolution
« Reply #17 on: December 06, 2015, 09:01:55 PM »
After viewing a couple of RBs vids, I have moved this thread to Heroes of the Revolution.

Russell Bentley is the REAL THING.  He is right up there with Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.

Talk about having the courage of your convictions.

Russell Bentley will Only Return to the FSoA in a Tank

Another interview with RB.

He's not coming back to the FSoA, except with enough Guns &  Ammo to take out as many Fascists as he can before he buys his ticket to the Great Beyond.

Holy Crap! Russell Bentley was part of the Music Community in Austin!
« Reply #20 on: December 06, 2015, 11:11:59 PM »
His niece is a musician working out of Austin.  Russell was/is a songwriter himself.  Worked as a Lumberjack and Tree Doctor.

Somebody Eddie knows must know this guy!

I'm sure I must know somebody who knows him. Interesting.

Russel Bently aka "Texas" arrived in the Donbass via Rostov in December '14, after watching for many months the progress of hostilities of the Kiev junta against the people of eastern Ukraine, whose only crime was that they did not want to live under the rule of fascists and Galician ultranationalists. Within weeks, he was fighting off fierce Ukrainian attacks in the environs of Donetsk Airport. It was here he was discovered and popularised for his grit, personality and wide Texan drawl. A couple of months later he was transferred to the media relations unit of the DPR Army and so the "Hemingway of the Donbass" was born. I don't think RB has anything to prove to anyone.

Interesting guy. He apparently went to jail in the 90's for selling pot to raise money to finance NORML.

I wonder if he is related to Bill Bentley, a record producer here who has a long history with a lot of Austin greats, including the late Clifford Antone, who was also busted for selling pot...to finance his own record label.

TPTB would like to discredit him. There are posts online that link him to a variety of people who don't spout the USMIC party line....people like the notorious Pepe Escobar.  ;D

I'm going to find somebody who knows him if I can. I know one guy in the music business who knows everybody in this town, but I haven't been in touch with him lately. I will enquire.

Seems like a stand-up guy to me.

His niece musician still playing in Austin is 26, in your daughter's range.  Probably a different last name though, I think it is his sister's kid.

It's "inquire" not "enquire".  Use spell check.  lol.

The Hemingway of the Donbass is on the move.

I am wondering how long his luck will hold out and he can stay alive.  :icon_scratch:

Watched most of this last video. Quite fascinating. By identifying himself as a communist, that instantly makes him a bad guy to most Americans.

I'll bet that drone they were shooting at was US made.
