5 September 2014. Sov Pop Stars of the 80s Rock the Old Sov Anthem

______________________________

Pop stars of the 80s rock the old Sov anthem. Most people in the USSR were patriotic… there weren’t any political prisoners left by the end of the 80s. Don’t listen to lying shits like Potapov… he had the effrontery to be disrespectful to Patriarch Aleksei Ridiger in public (at Georgetown U, where the whole world saw him criticise our patriarch at the behest of his CIA paymasters). Don’t listen to those who dragged our Church through the mud via their alliance with Western intel agencies, K Street stink-tankers, and the Republican Party. Today, the people of Novorossiya want the USSR back… they want a Soviet state with justice for all, honour to Christ’s Church, and a fair share-out of goods. That’s NOT what the Republican Party wants…

In this time of war and crisis, it’s imperative that we step away from it from time to time… at the height of the Blitz, Brits sang and smiled with George Formby… that was a HEALTHY thing. Have a smile…

______________________________

The accordion STILL rules in Russian pop culture… as long as there’s kvass, accordions, Borodinsky khleb, dill pickles, kolbasa, and arbuzi… there’s always gonna be a Russia! Bayan Miks is a good example of how traditional folk culture has adapted to the modern world. Russia is returning to Soviet standards in pop culture, rejecting Western degeneracy (especially, the perverted Anglo American version). Russian people love the old Sov songs as they’re positive and upbeat, without any of the nasty and dirty nuances found in Western “popular” music. I’d say that if I had to choose between Soviet standards and Anglo American standards… there’s no contest… the Sov standards are cleaner, more morally pure, and more decent. Keep that in mind as you hear the usual cast of suspects attack the legacy of the USSR. I know where I stand… what about you?

If the USSR is coming back… let it get here, already! It’s a lot better than the rot found on Fox News and the rubbish spread by the media about Kim Kardashian…
