In Russian political discourse, “liberal” means “libertarian” or “laissez-faire”… it doesn’t mean “liberal” in the Anglosphere sense. Indeed, it means what the Anglosphere calls “conservative”… small government, little (if any) government regulation, and unrestrained crapitalism. For instance, there are NO true conservatives in the USA, for conservatism REQUIRES legitimacy, and that went by the boards in America in 1776. All political discourse in the USA is liberalism of one sort or another. There is no conservatism… there is no socialism.  Because of this, Russian political terminology leads many astray. Leftists in Russia are mostly “social conservatives”, with the commies being the most “conservative” of the lot. Therefore, many American “conservative” chowderheads misread Russian political writing… they think that Russians are agreeing with them, when they’re not. I could name names… but everybody knows the usual gang of suspects.

Let’s get it straight… the socially healthy people in Russia are the commies (most of ‘em are believers today). Hell, HH was a true Soviet patriot… yes, he had a KGB codename… but only because he talked with the intel side of the house, he had nothing to do with the “secret police”. The disgusting income disparity in the West sickened him, so, he was willing to help the KGB in whatever way he could. Reflect on this… the KGB didn’t run secret torture prisons in third countries… but the USA did and the SCOTUS gave it a free ride. Imagine that…

Recently, the “fifth column” that lurks in most Russian media launched a campaign, “We’re ashamed to be Russian; we should repent for being Russian”. Apparently, this campaign aims to demoralise us, to dissolve our Soviet and Russian civilisation; in real terms, it’s a war against Russia. All this is very reminiscent of similar psycho-informational operations carried out by the West in an attempt to cause the collapse of the USSR. A good illustration of this kind of propaganda is the following fact… the well-known liberal poet Leah Akhedzhakova read a poem live on Ekho Moskvy radio by a certain “Orlusha” that ended with the words…  “I’m guilty, because I’m Russian” (here). Valdis Pelsh replied well on the topic of “Russianness”… “I think that those who wrote, ‘I’m ashamed that I’m Russian’ shouldn’t be ashamed, for they’re not really Russians” (here). Pelsh is quite right, the Russian people (regardless of their biological origin) will never be ashamed of their Russianness, and, conversely, the enemies of Russia and the Russian people have directed and applied all their forces to keep our homeland from rising from the ashes.

Russia is the only place where everyone, regardless of nationality, considers himself Russian. We should remember Stalin’s words… “I’m Russian, of Georgian nationality”. The Russian World, the Russian Accord… it’s a world for everybody living within it. The Russian world gave mankind the great Soviet civilisation. Therefore, global imperialism is making a tremendous effort to destroy our world, applying all means, including psycho-informational sabotage. The West is using all possible sorts of “soft power” to impose feelings of guilt in Russians about their culture, about their country, and even about their blood. The liberals are seeking to prevent Russian people from defeating these forgeries and frauds, to impose on them malignant feelings of guilt for imaginary sins… the chief of which are the very existence of the Russian and Soviet civilisation, the actual loss of our homeland in 1991 and our self-abandonment. We must break free from such imposed helplessness. However, the MH17 provocation, ginned up by the Ukrainian junta, in the midst of intensive air operations carried out by Ukrainian Air Force fighters… this is beyond the usual standards of good and evil. In fact, today, the Ukrainian Nazis, who tried to exterminate Russian feelings in Novorossiya over the last 23 years in a creeping genocide, indeed, a veritable physical destruction, demand that Russians there admit to being terrorists, and repent of their Russianness.

It’s hard to come up with more ludicrous baloney… if only because the Americans shot down an Iranian airliner in 1988 and didn’t even apologise, as well as the Euromaidantsy, who don’t want to remember that Ukrainians shot down a Russian airliner during a training exercise in 2001. Nobody says that Americans and Ukrainians have to be ashamed of who they are because of these events. Meanwhile, Kiev, the same as in Hitler’s Germany in 1933, banned the defender of Russianness… the KPU… the foundation of the Soviet project in the Ukraine. The logic is clear… from the first, “Russian” and “Soviet” were an integral whole in the Slavic world. Thus, the psycho-informational war is now on a new level, and the future of Russia, indeed, of the entire planet Earth, depends on its outcome. Under these circumstances, in my opinion, we should actively and boldly say, “I’m Russian! I’m a patriot!” “I’m proud that I’m Russian; I’m proud that I’m Red!” “In Kiev, there are Banderovtsy; in Moscow, there are liberals!” “Russian civilisation is Red civilisation!” “I’m NOT ashamed that I’m Russian!” “I’m not ashamed that I’m Russian; I’m affronted when they throw our compatriots to the dogs!” “Liberals should be ashamed of the actions of the Banderovtsy!” “You should be ashamed of doing this!”

We must awaken a healthy Great Russian national pride because the mass murder of our compatriots in Novorossiya is a massive emotional reality; Russians have a strong sense of guilt for their inaction. That feeling could become unconscious (according to the laws of psychology, unbearable guilt often buries itself in the unconscious, resulting in suicide or mass destruction), which would lead us to an imposed helplessness as a mechanism to protect ourselves against malignant pathological guilt, so, we’d use it to justify inaction, including our own. As anyone can see, liberals vigorously use these circumstances; they want to break up Russia, just as the USSR collapsed. Our words and our images are an obstacle to their attempts to disable our Russian World… a truly Red World.

Raise your voice in defence of the Motherland!

Over the twenty-plus years of post-Soviet life, Russian political scientists, sociologists, and other scholars argued about what constitutes national feeling and the overall unifying ideology. Furthermore, repeatedly, heated discussion centred on the question, “Who are and who can be considered ‘Russian?’” There was much controversy; they debated, they tried to refute opposing arguments…

Here’s a view on the matter in visual form, showing us ten of the attributes that make us “Russian”.

Editor:

Some of the images were in the original post, others I changed. Most of all, I wanted to show the continuity in the depiction of the Russian character from the Tsarist era through the Soviet times to the contemporary period. Those who tell you that the Soviet time was a break with the Russian character are liars with a crank Russophobic agenda, and we should treat them accordingly. It’s all ours, or none of it is ours… that’s the choice… there’s no other.

I don’t think that I need tell you what my choice is…

The Ukraine: A Western-Backed Russophobic Tragedy

We Have a Victory… You Have a Zoo!

For those who wish me to mince words, for those easily offended, for those who want journalists to pussy-foot around mumbling pleasantries, for those who believe blindly in the media, for those who think the West can speak or think no evil, then, it’s better not to read this piece. A cabal of demonic liars controls the west. For those individuals in the West who I know and respect, this piece isn’t for you, or your families. For those who’ve allowed themselves to be brainwashed to the point where they eagerly swallow, without question, the pile of nonsense shoved down their throats daily by the media, my advice is do more listening and reading and less speaking and writing.

The fact that the EU foreign ministers are sitting today talking about imposing more sanctions on Russia over the situation in the Ukraine speaks volumes about where the hearts and minds of the EU lie… lie is the correct word. There isn’t a shred of evidence that Moscow is behind any official state-sponsored support for the anti-Fascist freedom fighters in [Novorossiya], who wish to remain Russian-speaking Ukrainians and who don’t want any part of the Ukraine planned by the Fascist-backed murderous terrorist western-supported Putsch which seized power illegally back in February after ousting democratically elected President V F Yanukovich.

It was a campaign orchestrated from outside the Ukraine simply because Yanukovich tried to protect the Ukrainian economy by not signing up for a closer trading deal with the EU (the Association Agreement) after the EU typically imposed intrusive, arrogant, and unacceptable conditions for internal changes which belonged to Ukrainians, and Ukrainians alone. The EU, acting yet again like a collective bunch of Imperialists who only yesteryear drew lines on maps, slaughtered “natives” with machine-guns “when they saw the whites of their eyes”, wrecked economies and committed genocide in Africa and Latin America, imposed civilisation with the Bible and the bullet, and sold seventy million people into slavery… Africa’s Holocaust.

What followed was a gang of anti-Russian Fascists and their sympathisers rising to power in Ukraine, torturing and murdering Russian-speakers in the streets, calling for the deaths of Russians and Jews, and staging a Presidential election that elected P A Poroshenko. Meanwhile, the Crimean people stated en masse in a free and fair referendum that they didn’t wish to be part of this Ukraine and wished to return to Russia (which they should’ve never left), whilst the people of [Novorossiya], wary of the Fascist hordes rising to power in Kiev, and wary of their Russophobic edicts and claims, took up arms and declared independence.

What followed that was a spate of Russophobic hysteria in the Western media and amongst Western governments defying the laws of logic, which underlined the notion that a clique of pig-headed ignorant lukewarm failed politicians governs the West, whose main aim in life is to feather their own nests and pander to the whims of the lobbies which placed them in power and whom they serve. Suddenly, they painted Russia as an invader, they accused Russia of being responsible for the actions of the anti-Fascist freedom fighters, and, now, unbelievably, Western newspapers accuse President Putin personally of having downed the MH-17 flight over [Novorossiya].

For a start, the Crimean transition from a Fascist dictatorship to democracy within the Russian Federation, where the President was democratically elected several times with popularity rates far higher than any western leader, and probably more than a lot of them put together, was wholly in line with the law. Secondly, how can Russia invade what is, after all, Russia? Thirdly, the direct influence of Moscow in [Novorossiya] was grossly exaggerated by the West and, indeed, if those in Government in the EU bothered to inform themselves and speak to a [Novorossiyan], they’d see that these people don’t need Russia for anything, neither does the average Russian consider Russia engaged in any form of formal support, because this doesn’t exist. Fourthly, regarding the tragic incident with MH-17, let the focus be on the families and loved ones of the victims, first, and let the proper authorities carry out a proper investigation, second.

Mr Poroshenko, hand over the registers taken by the Ukrainian authorities from the Air Traffic Control Centre and stop making idiotic comments about Russia. If you don’t have the intelligence to govern your country, and if you aren’t man enough to stand up to the self-seeking pieces of excrement parading as your “Government”, then, stick to your disgusting chocolate factories and stop having your Fascist forces murder women and children. For all of those involved in any way with NATO, and that includes a substantial part of EU countries, then, read this.

As we can see, those who today point the finger at Russia and impose sanctions have a dreadful, horrific, and revolting few centuries of history behind them. They were happy to hide behind Russia in World War II whilst the USSR lost 26 million souls defeating Hitler and Nazism, while how many Ukrainians sided with the Fascists, how many Ukrainians supported the murderer and torturer Bandera, who slaughtered women and children, and then only opened up another front in the West because they had worries that all of Europe would become Communist.

Why not? The USSR provided free and excellent public services from beginning to end… free maternal care, guaranteed maternity leave, free education, free higher education, free leisure time activities, free sports facilities and training, free or heavily subsidised transportation, guaranteed housing, free, zero homelessness, guaranteed jobs, zero unemployment, free or heavily subsidised public utilities, safety on the streets, security of the State, 250 billion dollars per year spent on development projects overseas, excellent hospitals, healthcare systems, education systems half-way across the globe after helping countries to fight off the yoke of Imperialism, then, an indexed pension, free basic foodstuffs, and a free funeral.

Let the west look at its navel and see the nightmare societies it’s produced… lobbies growing richer and richer sucking the blood of the oppressed populations, who in their pig-headed arrogance nod obediently and accept it all like a herd of sheep. Spiralling prices, no jobs, no future, people can’t leave their homes because marauding gangs of drug addicts prowl their streets… sterling job, what? These people today impose sanctions on Russia? These people who dare to point the finger at Moscow amidst a flurry of lies? Moscow didn’t invade Iraq illegally outside the auspices of the UNSC, Moscow didn’t set up prison and torture camps halfway across the globe, Moscow didn’t side with terrorists in Libya and Syria, Moscow didn’t rip the heart out of Serbia (another country which fought bravely against Fascism in World War II) and give it to gangs of Albanian organ traffickers, rapists, and murderers just because President Clinton had his personal issues and needed to create a focus of attention away from the White House.

So, what’s my advice to Moscow? The further you are away from the West in general, NATO in particular, and the FUKUS Axis (France-UK-US) especially, the less intense the stench. Doing business with those who sport a smile one day and have half-a-dozen stones hidden behind their backs with their left hand and stab you in the back the following day, doing business with a bunch of insolent, arrogant, hypocritical Russophobic shits, isn’t dignified. My advice is to disassociate yourself with the lot of them, tell them where to put themselves, slam the door, bolt it three times, lock it, throw away the key, turn your back, and not have anything to do with them ever again. Latin America loves Russia, Africa loves Russia, and Southeast Asia loves Russia. The BRICS bloc has multiple opportunities for trade among brothers and sisters who smile and don’t snarl, who haven’t spent centuries colonising, stealing from, and massacring peoples and destroying societies. Today, Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa… tomorrow, Indonesia, Iran, Nigeria, Venezuela, Uruguay, and how many others can join together in the world’s largest trading block, dump the USD, and watch the West squirm in its collective inadequacy.

My advice is to hit back at sanctions with a massive and unequivocal determination and cold-blooded nerves of steel, slam your fist down on the table and show them what happens when you cage a bear and prod it with sticks time and time again, insulting its dignity, and hurting its heart. To hell with the lot of them, they’re a bunch of Russophobic, rude, self-seeking, pigshit-ignorant, arrogant, and intrusive bastards.

My apologies to shit, pigs, and pig shit.
