8 November 2012. A Sad Fact about the Late Election…

______________________________

John Wiener of The Nation wrote the following:

If only white people had voted on Tuesday, Mitt Romney would’ve carried every state except for Massachusetts, Iowa, Connecticut, and New Hampshire, according to the news media’s exit polls. Nationally, Romney won 59 percent of the white vote, a towering twenty-point margin over Obama (exit polls were cancelled in nineteen states by the consortium of news media that run them). The pattern isn’t limited to the South, with its history of racism and segregation. Even in the deepest blue states, white voters went for Romney… 53 percent in California, 52 percent in New York, 55 percent in Pennsylvania.

Liberals hoped that whites who opposed Obama in 2008 would learn toleration and acceptance of racial difference after four years with a black president in the White House. However, what happened was the opposite… Romney won 4 percent more of the white vote in 2012 than John McCain won in 2008. In New York and Wisconsin, Romney won 6 percent more of the white vote than McCain in 2008; in California and Florida, he won 7 percent more; in New Jersey, he won 8 percent more. Even in Massachusetts, where Obama’s margin of victory was 61 percent, Romney increased the Republicans’ proportion of the white vote by four percentage points over 2008.

The pattern is clear. White men went for Romney… that was accentuated amongst white rural men… and strongest of all amongst white men over 55. Most of all, Romney was the champion of the Anglo white male. Romney did NOT win a majority amongst white women… but his plurality amongst white men was so marked that it wiped that out.

I’ll be clear. I’ve heard the word “nigger” used once too often in my presence by white men who thought that I shared their hate and bile towards people who haven’t done a thing to hurt them. White men have drunk the Kool-Aid… and so-called “Born Again Christians” are the worst of the lot. Our Lord Christ would reject the whole bunch… no exceptions.

Look at the above map… the Anglo rural population swallowed the Grand Olde Pervert propaganda whole. The urban agglomerations where most of the American population lives rejected the Ayn Rand rubbish purveyed by Romney and Ryan.

We’re all in this together… that’s why socialism is the way to go. Either we all advance together or we all fall together. The rapine and theft by the Affluent Effluent has to end. Either that, or, we’ll have a revolution that’ll make 1917 look like a kid’s play…

8 November 2012. THIS is Why Wet Willy Lost…

______________________________

You see, Willy doesn’t know the meaning of “duty”… he had had his gazillionaire daddy buy him a phony “clergy” deferment during the Vietnam War. He doesn’t know the meaning of “patriotism”… he sends his money to the Cayman Islands and he sends American jobs to China. He doesn’t know the meaning of “charity” in the true sense… if he did, he would’ve silenced the “birthers” and condemned the racists in the Republican Party… but he didn’t (true charity doesn’t involve money… it involves love and care). People saw this; they have eyes, ears, and brains. They voted for the President.

They voted for love, patriotism, duty, and charity…

8 November 2012. Get Down On Your Knees and Thank God for GOP Racism… It Re-Elected the Prez!

______________________________

“Keep the White House white”… Willard Romney and Lyin’ Ryan never condemned such sentiments. Ergo, people concluded that they shared such obscene thoughts. In consequence, non-Anglo non-Evangelical Americans voted against Willy. The people did speak…

By the way, the alliance of Anglo Evangelicals and Mormons in this election proves that Anglo Evangelicals are about as Christian as Mormons are… that is, not at all. It ain’t Billy Graham‘s church any more… it’s Franklin Graham‘s conventicle… and we’re all poorer in consequence. Billy believed in Almighty God… his son Franklin believes in the Almighty Dollar… how do you spell D-E-G-E-N-E-R-A-T-I-O-N?

7 November 2012. Several Thoughts on this Great October…

______________________________

“Whatever past, we may have, it’s ours… it’s all our past”… President Lukashenko spoke wisdom when he said that. That’s why we shoudn’t topple the statues of Lenin… nor those of Tsar St Nikolai… nor those of Gagarin… nor those of Minin and Pozharsky… nor those of Pyotr Veliki. It’s all “our past”, and it formed our narod. If you attempt to erase the past, you attempt to say that what happened didn’t happen… and that’s more formally-absurd than anything Camus ever wrote. There are Five Epic Events in Russian History (there are other Great Events, but these were the real game-changers):

Great October deserves its place. Lenin deserves his place. There’s no getting around it. It’s our past. Great October WAS an epochal event. Lenin was an exceptional leader (I’m not saying that I agree with all of his programme, merely that he was a very talented and gifted man). Russia is forever different because it was Soviet… just as St Vladimir changed it by embracing Orthodoxy… just as Batu Khan changed it via conquest… just as Minin and Pozharsky changed it by defeating the Poles and maintaining Orthodoxy… just as Pyotr changed it by bringing in Western methods and mores. Besides, we’re too close to the events of 1991 to see their true import. Were they a permanent rejection of the Soviet model or was it only a temporary crapitalist interregnum? In historical terms, twenty years is a piffle. No system is cemented in place until fifty years have passed… at least. For instance, the present American system has persisted since FDR’s New Deal… since the time of Reagan (the Russians would’ve called his era of misrule the Reaganshchyna), the Grand Olde Phonies have attempted to topple the New Deal paradigm, but they’ve ultimately failed (they’ve chipped away at this and at that, but the basic edifice stands). Under modern conditions, a powerful federal government’s required, and that’s that.

For the Church, Great October was good, in the end. Yes, kids it was GOOD. The atheist persecution of the early USSR was a GOOD thing. It drove most of the phonies out. It burnt out the cancer of being a “state department”. It made the Church confront its sins and failings. That is, it did much more good than harm, in the long term. That’s why the woman abused by Moriak should sue him in civil court. It’ll force the believers in the OCA to face reality. The SOBs aren’t interested in the truth, they’re only interested in maintaining their situations, and, if they commit crimes against the civil law or break the canons… that’s no biggie to them. “I apologise… see, it’s all right, now!” That’s immoral, absurd, and utterly false at base. We need to burn out the cancer. Paffhausen, Moriak, and Peterson all have to go… not out of office… deposed from the episcopate (they’d still be priests… the Church doesn’t allow multiple punishments). We must utilise the principle of the Great October… not a bad thing in its essence.

Great October is ours. I still say… “Let there be a November Holiday, starting with the Day of National Unity (an old tsarist holiday) on 4 November and ending with the Day of the Great October on 7 November”. It’s the right time for folks to get ready for winter, and the two days between the two book-end holidays would be dandy for that. You can’t shitcan history… what does that tell you about those who try to do such? Here’s a last point to ponder for Russian Orthodox people here in the American diasporaSVS and Jordanville are trying to “shitcan history”… what does that tell you about them (and their positions on the Church)? Think on that one well…
