No dialogue… just images… as you watch it, realise that we have some amongst us who still defend Nazi excesses on the grounds of anti-communism… fancy that…

On 29 November 1941, the Fascist occupiers led a young partisan to the scaffold and hanged her. Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya became a symbol of all those put to death by the Nazis. Her courage and self-sacrifice is self-evident and undeniable. Of course, the right vilifies her memory, but the truth of the matter has always won out (the records of the time refuted Western claims that the Reds made up her story). The MP is considering her sanctity (it hasn’t rejected the claim, despite rightwing propaganda to the contrary). What would the woollier ROCOR elements do if they do glorify her? I’d pay big bucks to see the looks on the faces of the Lukianovtsy and the Potapov circle. Would they stay with us or would they spin-off into irrelevance (after all, that’s what the Nazi collaborators and their families did in South America in ’07 after the reconciliation)? Perspirin’ minds wanna know…

This is the 90th anniversary of Zoya Anatolyevna’s birth…

20 April 2013. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words… THIS is Why We Need a New USSR… AND SOON

00 Beggars outside church in Krasnoyarsk. RUSSIA. 14.04.13

______________________________

This image shows beggars outside of an Orthodox church in Krasnoyarsk in Siberia. Such wasn’t common in Sov times… to be sure, no one lived in the lap of luxury, but what was there, was shared more equally (of course, there were people with blat… that obtains in every society known to mankind). Indeed, before the time of Slobberin’ Ronnie and Haggie Maggie, things were more equitable in the Anglosphere, too. In both Russia and the West, the oligarchs steal the people’s patrimony… and call themselves respectable! If that isn’t EVIL, then, I’ll check myself into Bedlam with Mr Scrooge

VVP is bringing back the good things of the USSR and of Tsarist Russia… and moving away from the oligarchs. May God preserve him…

18 April 2013. Far Rightwing Pigs to Offer Seminar at SVS… Boy, How the Worm Has Turned!

00 cartoon witch doctor

We demand the scrapping of all social welfare programmes now! We don’t care what His Holiness teaches on social justice. We stand with the Acton Institute, not with our Patriarch… we like them better!

______________________________

Read this. The Acton Institute is a pro-papist pro-crapitalist stink tank founded by the rather questionable rightwing crank Robert Sirico. SVS and the OCA piss on the Orthosphere, yet again. Until the papists bring their Uniate attack dogs to heel, we shouldn’t have anything to do with Catholic organisations, and especially not with questionable political forums such as the Acton Institute. Now, this is an interesting turnabout for SVS… in the ’80s, one could count on them being the most “left” bunch in Orthodoxy. Of course, now, they kiss the collective bums of the konvertsy… and they’re all rightwing kooks. I never thought that I’d see it… but live long enough, and you’ll see the most damnedest things. SVS has gone right-wing! One wonders why… however, they’re still nutty-squirrel modernists in theology, that hasn’t changed. What a combination… Pavel Ivanovich von Meyendorff’s rants on “liturgical fundamentalism” and Chad Hatfield’s rightwing bloviations… all on the same campus… oddly enough, they appear to be of one mind on theology… they haven’t abandoned ADS‘ heretical opinions in the least. I see that Deborah Belonick is still around… one would think that she’d be more consistent (and not support such rightwing lunacy)… but “Paris is worth a mass”, no?

If this doesn’t prove, yet again, that shitbirds of a feather flock together…

Maggie Thatcher Dies at 87

She Vanquished the Miners

______________________________

On Monday, Lord Bell, Mrs Thatcher’s spokesman, announced that former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died at the age of 87 following a stroke, saying, “It’s with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother, Baroness Thatcher, died peacefully following a stroke this morning”. British Prime Minister David Cameron called her a “great Briton”, whilst the Queen expressed her sadness. US President Barack Obama issued a statement, “The world has lost one of the great champions of freedom and liberty, and America has lost a true friend”.

Thatcher was Britain’s first female prime minister, a post she held from 1979 until 1990, when a Conservative Party coup forced her out, following rioting in Trafalgar Square over her unpopular poll tax. Perhaps the most controversial figure in modern British politics, a grocer’s daughter, Thatcher was a committed believer in the free market and an opponent of the culture of a welfare state… or the “nanny state”, as she called it. In 1987, she said, “There’s no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families”.

She took Britain to war in 1982, after Argentina took back the Malvinas Islands, located just off the coast of Argentina. “Rejoice! Rejoice!” she cried after British Marines took a key island, the triumph carrying her to an easy victory in the 1983 national election. Thatcher also famously took on Britain’s once-powerful trades unions, labelling striking miners the “enemy within” during their 1984-85 walkout. Her eventual defeat of the miners’ union changed Britain’s political landscape and made her a hated figure on the left.

A firm ally of US President Ronald Reagan during the Cold War, nevertheless, Thatcher hailed future Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachyov during a 1984 meeting in Britain. Three months later, Gorbachyov became the leader of the USSR. On Monday, Gorbachyov said in a statement, “Margaret Thatcher was a great politician and a striking person”.

Thatcher was nicknamed the “Iron Lady” for her perceived toughness, a moniker that was then picked up by her supporters and critics at home. She also survived an IRA attack on the Brighton hotel she was staying at ahead of a Conservative Party conference. Thatcher’s time in power transformed Britain both politically and culturally, seeing the rise of what critics labelled the “me” culture. Former Cabinet Secretary Lord Butler of Brockwell, who served as Thatcher’s principal private secretary from 1982 to 1985, told RIA-Novosti that Margaret Thatcher was “above all a conviction politician. She had her own principles, whatever trial she faced, be it in the Falklands {i.e., the Malvinas: editor}, the miners’ strike, or the Cold War. She believed in freedom and justice under the law … these were such clear principles that she always knew what direction to take”. Her funeral, with full military honours, will be at London‘s St Paul’s Cathedral.

Editor’s Note:

Margaret Thatcher, along with Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachyov were amongst the most evil people of the Twentieth Century. They enabled the massively-corrupt and greedy “New World Order” that plundered the world in the nineties and aughts. Their legacy is thousands of shattered lives… but that didn’t matter to them… they were just little people… they weren’t “productive”… they weren’t “successful”… they weren’t “focused on goals and objectives”. The Unholy Trinity brought us the Economic Meltdown of ’07 by dismantling government regulation or by destroying a non-capitalist society. Truly, there’s little to choose between Reagan, Thatcher, and Gorbachyov. All three were anti-Christian destroyers. Again, take note of Mrs Thatcher’s quote:

“There’s no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families”.

That’s utterly repulsive and disgusting. It says that we needn’t take a care for our society or environment, for it isn’t our concern. We need only enrich our families, or ourselves, and to hell with the consequences to society, for “there’s no such thing as society”. That remark reveals the inner character of Mrs Thatcher. Scary, isn’t it? Remember, evil doesn’t wear red tights, carry a pitchfork, or have horns and hooves. It doesn’t raise its voice, it dresses neatly, it’s polite, it “goes along to get along”, and, above all, “Greed is GOOD”.

I hope that Maggie repented of her godless actions, but I fear that she didn’t. Crank world, isn’t it?
