Grassroot Psyops Against Russia (Updated)

Many people have seen or heard of the video of the little Ukrainian woman accosting a Russian soldier to give him sunflower seeds. She tells him to put the seeds in his pocket so they will sprout in Ukrainian soil as he lies dead.

Today I saw this post on Instapundit from someone who goes by Flight Er Doc.

Amazon has many varieties of sunflower seeds. There are Mammoth ones like these, assortments of various colors of sunflowers, and Dwarf Sunspots sunflowers.

Making sunlight liquid – a brief history of sunflowers

If you would rather go with something more traditional from wars of the past, you can get Red Flanders Poppies.

If you don’t want to send actual seeds, might I suggest a greeting card with sunflowers on it. The one below with a painting by Claude Monet might be nice. It would also allow you to send a personalized message to Vladimir Putin.

You are only limited by your imagination. The Russians and the Soviets before them have been fucking with us for years. It is time to return the favor.

As an aside, if you do order from Amazon with the links above, I do earn a small commission which goes to supporting this blog.

UPDATE: The sunflower seeds have been delivered. Too bad we can’t put them in Putin’s pocket.

According to one of the comments, Amazon does put your name on the return envelope or box. Might be time to get out the old Geiger counter. I doubt I’ll be getting a night time visit from the FSB. If I do, I can rest easy knowing North Carolina has the castle doctrine.

    1. Jeez, I never put 2 and 2 together. I’ve seen your comments here before. Duh!

      I knew the sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine which is one reason I said go with sunflowers with poppies as the alternative.

      Thanks for the inspiration and the idea. BTW I did send a packet of sunflower seeds this morning to the Russian embassy.

    1. In Ukraine’s fields the poppies blow
      Between the crosses, row on row,
      That mark our place; and in the sky
      The larks, still bravely singing, fly
      Scarce heard amid the guns below.

      We are the Dead. Short days ago
      We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
      Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
      In Ukraine’s fields.

      Take up our quarrel with the foe:
      To you from failing hands we throw
      The torch; be yours to hold it high.
      If ye break faith with us who die
      We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
      In Ukraine’s fields.

      With apologies to John McCrae, MD

  1. As I am about to click confirm, I wonder if this is a great idea. The gift will have a return address on it. I feel like I will get polonium trinket return mailed to me.

    1. Send a sunflower greeting card. No reason to put a return address on it.

      I don’t know if Amazon puts my return address on the order of seeds I had sent today. If they do, meh.

      1. They do put your return address on it. To get around it you have to buy a gift card, log out, then use it as a guest.

  2. Kim DuToit (my third favorite African-American, after Elon Musk and Charlize Theron) has a great expansion:

    Have the Freedom Truckers hand out seed packets to the guardsmen in DC….

  3. And my seeds were delivered today…..

    I will be looking out for Polonium for awhile…
