Some Neoliberal “conservative” bloggers masquerading as “Orthodox” are attacking Byelorussia, they’re claiming that the MP supports the NATO aggression in Libya, and they’re asserting that the Church approves of the godless agenda of the New GOP slimers. A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, KIDS. These pictures prove that the Church honours the sacrifices of the RKKA vets of the VOV. The Church blessed the young communists who stood up to defend the canonical Church all over the former USSR during the disgusting American-sponsored Neoliberal (“conservative”) chaos of the Nasty ‘90s (don’t forget, at that time, the ROCOR under Ustinov plunged a knife full-force into the back of the Mother Church by sponsoring schismatic parishes in rebellion against the MP).

Look at the images… the Church honours the men who fought in the Red Army… it honours the Great Victory of the Soviet people… it honours the young communists who stood in its defence in the ‘90s… all these things are blessed and good.

As for the lying Neoliberal “Orthodox” bloggers… the less said, the better. They don’t give you any documentary evidence from His Holiness or any images of him “blessing” the rightwing slime and their swinish actions (by the way, the Whites were just as opposed to greedy money-hungry merchants as the Reds were, interestingly enough). They can’t… it doesn’t exist. The Cross and the Red Banner can co-exist (KMG and Gennady Andreyevch are close, personally)… the Cross and the Almighty Dollar cannot (as the Nasty ‘90s proved for even the slow learners)… do ponder that. That means that the Church isn’t only unable to bless the rightwing and its money-grubbing agenda, it condemns it for its roots in the “lust of the flesh”, which means that any serious Christian must be a determined and obdurate foe of that faction and of all of its cockamamie notions, or, you deny the social teaching of the Church as its been laid down by His Holiness on many occasions.

Do keep in mind that Fathausen and Potapov are in cahoots with some of the more extremist members of the New GOP… birds of a feather DO flock together… NEVER forget that. It also means that they stand against everything that Our Lord Christ lived for, died for, and rose for, insofar as social justice is concerned… it’s that serious!

18 July 2011. A Friend Sent Me On This Link… The Amazing Dissolving Nation

Filed under: politics,USA — 01varvara @ 00.00

THIS is why the nation’s dissolving… we’ll pay dearly for the rich having partied on for thirty years on our backs…

Note this:

It’s conceivable to me that Barack Obama may be the last president… for a while. He was a decent fellow but, in the end, ineffectual, and, of course, he got no help from the legislative branch, including especially colleagues in his own party, a most remarkable class of maundering chickenshits and grifters. Our money problems will not go away, and, after a while, this land will not be governable by familiar means. In case you haven’t noticed, the rule of law is already AWOL in many sectors of our national life, most particularly money matters, but before long on every street-corner, every highway strip, plus every GMO cornfield, and brownfield. The two parties are unreformable, and the Tea Party is the stooge of one of the two parties, and there’s no other party of earnest, decisive, and sane individuals anywhere near the horizon. So, some kind of convulsion is in the cards and it’ll be the unfortunate duty of some dutiful officer to step in and set an agenda based on something other than bluster, fakery, and pocket pool. Whilst there’s a good chance the US debt ceiling will be extended, it seems to me that, meanwhile, we’ve crossed an invisible line into a place where untoward things happen.

This requires no commentary from me. Think on this… think on it HARD. If the general society’s crook, why should it surprise us that the Church here is crank as well? Fathausen’s a Paul Ryan fan (indeed, JP’s a rabid fan of the Tea Party and all its Foolishness)… that should speak volumes to you. If he’s an advocate of crackbrained politics, it’s no surprise that he’s an advocate of lunatic ideas in the Church as well. When you add in his continued lying on his trip to Russia in the ’90s… I think that you can see what I mean, and that you agree with me that the structure can’t persist much longer.

Why must we live in such days? I have no bloody idea… the only thing that we can do is to stand tall and “do the right thing”. I confide that most of you won’t punk out… it’ll be hard… VERY HARD… but you won’t punk out. Take my hand…

18 July 2011. Homage to the Imperial Legacy in Paint and Sound…

The Imperial Family

Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857-1934), a tsarist pioneer of cosmonautics…

Yuri Gagarin (1934-68) and Sergei Korolyov (1907-66)… two Soviet pioneers of cosmonautics… as an aside, Yuri Alekseyevich’s two older siblings were deported by the Nazis to do slave labour in Germany… be aware of that when you hear Vlasovtsy criticisms of the USSR

Russia and Russians have to attend to both streams of their legacy… the White… the Red… “BOTH”, NOT “EITHER, OR”… we stand equally for the legacies of the heroes of Sevastopol and the heroes of Leningrad… of Suvorov and Zhukov… of Mendeleyev and Korolyov… of Dostoyevsky and Solzhenitsyn… of Aleksandr Aleksandrovich and Iosif Vissarionovich… of Bellinghausen and Chilingarov… of Tsiolkovsky and Gagarin… of Gilyarovsky and Simonov… of Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich… of the Great Victories of 1814 and 1945… of the tragedy of Nikolai Aleksandrovich and Mikhail Sergeyevich… of the two Great Patriotic Wars in the 19th and 20th centuries that brought down the evil threatening the world… and much, much more. Its all ours… we can’t, and shouldn’t, deny a bit of it. IT HAPPENED.

THIS is our legacy; we’ve had the good, the bad, and the indifferent… as we find in the legacy of all narodi… we must accept it as it is. May the Americans learn this, too… God willing, they’ll abandon their dishonest, godless, self-absorbed, childish, and self-worshipping “American Exceptionalism”… may that day come soon…

18 July 2011. THIS Rubbish is TYPICAL of the Rightwing Mindset… Scary, Isn’t It?

Filed under: moral issues,politics,USA — 01varvara @ 00.00

I got the above cartoon from:

http://hopenchangecartoons.blogspot.com/2011/07/birth-of-donation.html

Do read the article… the incorrigibly and determinedly ignorant bile in the post is obvious even to an outsider. I’m no lily-livered shirker, myself… I’m as feisty and down n’ dirty as the best of ‘em. However… as Chukcha the Wise would say… the truth has to inform us. We have an obligation to seek it out, ponder it, and apply it to our lives, without any sanctimonious PC lecturing, without namby-pamby self-righteousness, and without smug and smarmy priggishness. We don’t have the right to spread purposeful lies and deliberate falsehoods as the rightwingers do (Andrew Bretibart, Rush Limboob, and Lil’ Mizz Sarah are prime examples)… that makes ‘em Lucifer’s servants… their morally-superior pseudo-religious rhetoric only deepens that, it doesn’t redeem them in the least, for, in their eyes, they’re the religious Übermenschtumen… all the rest of us are Raya… we’re the spiritual Untermenschtumen, dontcha know.

Do reflect that Fathausen, Lebedeff, Potapov, Whiteford, and all the konvertsy in general believe the rightwing fantasy embodied in the above cartoon and endeavour to spread this soul-corrosive cancer throughout the Church. You know what to do…
