18 August 2015. “National Review” Carried Review of Dreher’s Screed on Dante… Is Drerod Getting Ready to Stab Pat Buchanan in the Back?

00 peacock f g ranevskaya. 180815

This is my reaction to Dreher and his bathos… especially, about his sister… cancer IS a tragedy (no one knows that better than I do, as I buried a dear friend far too soon), but he uses it as a shield to deflect criticism, which is beneath the salt.

00 Zyuganov and HH Kirill. 14.09.14

His Holiness doesn’t associate with rightwing filth like Rod Dreher… he associates with LEFTIES like Comrade Zyuganov… that’s a scream… HH is the head of our Church, and Dreher has to smile at the fact that our First Hierarch REJECTS his deranged “conservative” social vision (HH just sent birthday greetings to his personal friend Commandante Fidel).

______________________________

In February, Dreher penned a book about Dante. No… he’s not a literary scholar nor is he a historian… he’s just an opinionated journalist. Yes, book reviews do come out, usually at the time of release. This one had two… a pre-release in February and a formal rollout in April. I looked online for the National Review print edition’s book review that just ran, well, it isn’t there. This new review by Ian Tuttle is rather glowing, more so than the review that ran in April in the online edition. Hmm… does this mean that Dreher, an opportunistic Bedouin par excellence, is getting ready to jump yet again?

Firstly, let’s not forget what he’s done… he was in Brooklyn, working for the National Review, then, he jumped to Dallas, to work for a newspaper… he wasn’t happy there, either, so, he jumped to the District to work at a Hard Right stink-tank (whose leading light is a nutter who believes that there’s a giant supercomputer just jam-packed with all the juicy titbits about you and me). That bed didn’t fit either… so, he jumped back home to Louisiana, and went to work for the American Conservative, a marginal rag with only a paid circulation of 8,000. Now, with Tuttle’s review, one can’t help but think… Dreher’s jumped three times already, post-National Review, is he going to rejoin his former employer (probably, for filthy lucre’s sake, as a paid circulation of only 8,000 can’t bring in much gelt)?

By the way… Dreher’s vaunted “Benedict Option” isn’t even a figment of the imagination… it doesn’t go bump in the night. By electing Francisco Bergoglio, the Church of Rome decisively rejected Benny Ratz’s political platform. In fact, as far as social teaching goes… the RCs and the Church are ON THE SAME PAGE. BOTH reject the anti-statist pro-oligarch solutions that Dreher advocates (for that is what they are… he wants a non-existent state with no social protections or safety net). Here’s what our Church believes and what the RCs believe… IT UTTERLY REJECTS DREHER’S HARD RIGHTWING FANTASIES. Read ‘em and heed ‘em:

A restructuring of our economic and social system is needed because there shouldn’t be this absolutising, this idolatry of private property, which, frankly, is a form of paganism. The Christian can’t accept private property as an absolute.

Blessed Archbishop Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez

An economic system built only on the striving for profit, on indifference to the fate of people, on disregard for moral norms, lacks stability; it can collapse at any moment, burying the fate of people under its rubble.

His Holiness Kirill Gundyaev

Patriarch of Moscow and all the Russias

KPRF members, like all honest people in our country, which are an absolute majority in Russia, marshal our forces so that our beloved homeland can pass through our current difficulties with decent dignity. Let the great values and aspirations of labour, justice, equality, brotherhood, and truth, things that are bedrock to the timeless Christian faith and the communist ideal alike, triumph in our lives. I greet all the clergy and laity of the Russian Orthodox Church, indeed, all Orthodox Christians, in the light of the Risen Christ, I wish you spiritual vigour and physical strength. I believe that we can revive and raise up all the Russias if we act as one!

G A Zyuganov

First Secretary of the KPRF and Leader of the KPRF faction in the RF Gosduma

I wrote this on the topic… I still stand by it… here’s part of it…

As for me, if I thought that these people incarnated Christianity, I’d leave, with no regrets. Their writings and actions say that religion is nothing but a grand and glorious mindfuck… then, you die, for good and all. Don’t stoop to their level. There are no easy answers… there are no pat solutions… there’s no unbreakable and inflexible Law of God. Christ asks all of us… “Who do YOU say I am?” Don’t be quick to answer that. I’m 61… I’m still working on it…

There be counterfeits in circulation. Bite the coin before accepting it…

Rod Dreher is getting ready to move again, I think… some “localist” isn’t he? I’m much more that than he is… the only way that I’ll leave the Northeast is to go to Heaven, and that’s that…

BREAKING NEWS OFFICIAL Pushilin Denies News of ONF Meeting in Donetsk

00 d v pushilin 01 160815

______________________________

OFFICIAL

Information about the opening of a Novorossiya branch of the all-Russian People’s Front (ONF), which appeared yesterday in the media, doesn’t correspond to reality. Unfortunately, it’s a provocation to discredit Russian public organisations. If any Russian social or political organisation were to meet in the DNR, the Ukrainian side would accuse the Russian government of entering the conflict, of conducting agitprop activities on our territory amongst our people. Furthermore, to give greater credibility to this information, those spreading this item claimed that the Chairman of the DNR Peoples Soviet, A E Purgin, was involved in the affair. I can assure you that Andrei Yevgenyevich had nothing to do with this.

Editor:

I vetted this with a local source… it WAS on an official site, after all.

WE ALL GOT GULLED.

It was a Langley provocation… Orthodox people… bear in mind that Victor Potapov directly works (or worked) for a CIA front, and that Jonas Paffhausen is a shameless cheerleader for the neocon opponents of Holy Rus and that Rod Dreher shills for the Republican warmongers who want to attack Holy Rus. I can post things in error… this was one such (beyond my control, but still an error)… but do have a care with people such as Potapov, Paffhausen, and Dreher… all are either direct participants in neocon/Republican aggression against Holy Rus or actively support those who are. Have a care… the times ARE evil…
