There’s a video going viral, intended to show how much worse life is in the United States than in Russia. The video is filmed in an airplane cabin, and is in Russian, but has English subtitles.
Essentially the video depicts a family moving to the United States, with the father commenting on how long he has been wanting to do this. A woman seated near the family confirms his excitement, saying how America is the freest country in the world, and the land of opportunity.
But then the family learns the alleged reality of living in the United States, which isn’t what they were expecting:
The woman seated in front of them introduces her “husband,” another woman, illustrating the trend of same-sex marriages.
The man is eating meat, but a flight attendant forces him to stop because it makes vegetarians seated near him uncomfortable; she takes the food from him and mentions how this is how the principle of democracy works.
There’s a line for the bathroom on the plane, but then a Black man shows up and jumps the line; the man is forced to let him go first, because “his people endured the oppression of white people for many years,” and “we owe all African Americans a debt,” so everyone then gets on their knees and bows down to the Black man, begging for forgiveness.
The family is asked to change seats to another part of the cabin because there’s a child-free couple near them, and a child being in their field of vision makes them uncomfortable.
