2 October 2016. The More Things Change Department… Why Does the USA Support Neo-Nazis?

latvia10

Latvian SS VOLUNTEER… Balts flocked to the fascist cause and embraced Nazi racial theory willingly. Perhaps, that’s why they oppress Russian inhabitants of the Baltic states today… and why Galicians and Croats likewise oppress minorities. The USA supports such… spitting on all the World War II vets. All hail American-style “democracy!”

I was born in Pskov; my grandmother survived the German occupation. She’s still alive at 90-years-old. She’ll tell you that the worst westerners were the Estonians… they were really a cold-blooded lot. They destroyed the whole town; when the liberation came, only 149 people remained alive in the village.

The more things change, the more that they stay the same. The USA supports states in Europe that proudly parade their collaboration with the fascists in World War II. Croatia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and the Ukraine all glorify Nazi collaborators. The USA tells us how “democratic” these countries are. I say that such is a lie, a disgusting fiction… for “democracy” only exists for the favoured “race” in these countries… be a Russian in the Baltic states or the Ukraine or be a Serb in Croatia, and you’ll know what I mean. Let’s not be coy, the USA is cosying up to those who practise Nazi racial theory. That’s evil. I’ll tell you this… Clinton, Johnson, and Trump all slobber in glee over these present-day neo-Nazis. Only Dr Jill would end American support for such filth. Do vote accordingly…

The Religious Roots of Russia’s Mistrust towards the West

aleksandr-nevsky-2007-rf

Right-Believing Grand Prince St Aleksandr Nevsky stopped the absorption of Russia into Catholic Europe and thus saved the Russian Orthodox faith

______________________________

There’s something in the Russian collective memory that causes Russian mistrust towards the West. Does this mistrust have religious roots? I don’t disagree completely with some of the points made in the article Anti-Western Sentiment as the Basis for Russian Unity, heavily criticised by fellow RI contributor Eric Kraus. Russian identity has a deeper anti-Western sentiment than implied by the recent rise of anti-Western sentiment among Russians, primarily caused by what they perceive as American and NATO aggression. So what is one of the main causes of Russia’s historical mistrust towards the West? For centuries, the Vatican tried to convert Russian Orthodox Christians to Catholicism. They succeeded in doing so with Orthodox Christians in the Western Ukraine and in parts of the Western Balkans. Even today, Vatican zealotry is alive and well. The Vatican is trying to achieve a “church union with Orthodox Christians”, of course under the primacy of the Pope. Russians saw foreign invaders… the Vatican, together with Swedish and Polish forces, Napoleon, Hitler, and NATO… as violent symbols of Western civilisation.

However, Russian identity didn’t gel as a reaction or historical reflex to Western expansionism. In its nature, Russian culture isn’t anti-Western or based on antagonism towards foreign civilisations or concepts.Many Russians would argue that Russian identity belongs to a different civilisational “code” as a successor of the great traditions and civilisation of New Rome. That’s the reason the Russian Empire was for centuries considered the Third Rome. Orthodox civilisation differs from its Western counterpart in terms of values, tradition, religion, and so on. Just read Samuel Huntington’s A Clash of Civilisations. Huntington posits that people’s cultural and religious identities would be the primary source of conflict in the post-Cold War world. Many would argue that this is exactly what’s happening in today’s world. Most of the recent conflicts have either religious or cultural causes. In addition, bloody civil wars in the Balkans, and now in the Ukraine, had a strong religious and civilisational dimension to them.

Let’s not forget that many American and European Christian conservatives support Putin because of his Christian vision and pro-family values. Maybe, could this be a reaction to their own governments’ openly anti-Christian and anti-family approach to social issues?

Here’s what Mr Marinović wrote to an interlocutor in the commboxes:

I was referring to the Vatican, not to ordinary Catholic believers. There’s a big difference between good ordinary Catholics on one side and the corrupted Vatican and “infallible” Pope on the other. Click here for an excellent article about Vatican and Russia. As Dostoyevsky pointed up, “Papism is more dangerous than atheism, since it presents to us a profane and desecrated Christ usurping the earthly throne”, the Pope took the sword and added, “lies, intrigue, deception, fanaticism, and villainy”. Papism is dangerous precisely because it offers a counterfeit Christ.

You obviously deceive yourself when you claim that the Popes didn’t want to subordinate Orthodox for centuries. Yes, they didn’t ask for the Latin Mass, but they did ask us to admit the primacy of the Pope and to consider him “infallible in matters of faith”, which is blasphemy. As far as the power-hungry Vatican is concerned, you can worship God as you want, as long as you subordinate yourself to the Pope. The Pope replaced Christ; he’s the God in the Vatican church. There’s no place for Christ next to the Pope; you just need to adore the Pope and you’ll be saved. In regard to theological and other important differences between Catholics and the Orthodox Church, please, click here, here, and here.

______________________________

If you’d like to learn more what Catholic clergy did to “their Christian brothers”, to Orthodox Christians, in the Second World War, please, look at this documentary. Moreover, this documentary only relates the Vatican’s misdeeds in World War II; I’m not even mentioning any other tragic historical events related to the Vatican and Orthodox Christians. THE VATICAN’S HOLOCAUST isn’t a misnomer, an accusation, and even less a speculation. It’s a historical fact. Rabid nationalism and religious dogmatism were its two main ingredients. During the existence of the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) as an independent Catholic State, over 700,000 men, women and children perished. Many were executed, tortured, died of starvation, buried alive, or were burned to death. Thousands were forced to become Catholic. Catholic padres ran concentration camps; Catholic priests were officers of the military that committed such atrocities. 700,000 in a total population of a few million, proportionally, would be as if a Catholic militia exterminated one-third of the American population.

The Ustaša slaughtered Serbs, Jews, and the Roma were in their villages after unspeakable tortures or burned alive in their churches. Those they didn’t murder, they expelled to Serbia proper after despoiling them of all their property or forcibly converting to the Roman Catholic faith by Franciscan and Roman Catholic clergy. Many suffered as slave labourers. The remaining people went to concentration camps where the majority perished. From gold and money stolen from these people, the Vatican enabled Nazis to escape to Argentina, on the so-called “ratlines”. Pope John Paul ll declared war criminal Alojzije Viktor Stepinac beatified in 1998.

I’d add that a good place to find some more intel on this is here, scroll down to “Dmitri Anatolyevich at the Radonezh Orthodox Gymnazia in Moscow”, then, scroll past the Vasnetsov painting and under the image of D A Belyukin, read that. There’s a lot of good stuff in that post… D A Belyukin is a People’s Painter of Russia, an Orthodox activist, a Russian patriot, and a world-class painter. Here’s the main quote:

Dmitri Anatolyevich asked, “Did you know that Prince Aleksandr Nevsky had a dilemma? He could go to war against the Horde or against the enemies from the West. Why do you think that he chose to face the latter threat?” The students replied, “Because they wanted to force Russia to convert to their faith!” Dmitri Anatolyevich replied, “The answer’s correct, harsh as it is. That is, the Tatars were content with tribute, they didn’t infringe upon the Faith, and they didn’t notice that Igumen Sergei of Radonezh had started to stir up the depths of the Russian land. The Westerners, on the other hand, wanted to bring their crusades to Russia, which, in many respects, the current popes carry out both covertly and openly. Therefore, it’s even more necessary for all of us to protect Orthodoxy as the mainstay and foundation of the unity of the nation”.

I also posted this… here’s the main quote:

It’s a frightening snapshot of the mindset of the Tea Party. They’re nothing but nativist Know-Nothings. It’s why we as Orthodox Christians can have nothing to do with them. They’re American Sectarians through-and-through. Their defining ideology is “Dominion Theology”, which states that the Bible (in its distorted and bowdlerised Proddie recension) trumps all civil law. Orthodox can’t have anything to do with that… our theology speaks of the symphonia of Church and State, each in its proper sphere, each with its own proper laws.

Many American Orthodox have succumbed to the siren song of American Sectarianism. After all, there are MILLIONS of them and only about a million Orthodox all told, of all “flavours”, in the USA. We must recognise that sectarianism is the greatest enemy to Our Lord Christ that exists in our country. Atheism doesn’t even come close to them… secularism is a pale opponent in comparison. A Russian priest wrote to me, “Sectarians use the name of Christ, but they aren’t of Him or in Him. They aren’t Christians, they’re of Satan”.

Orthodoxy isn’t defined “against” anything or anyone… it has its own positive dynamic. It stands alone… it’d exist even if there wasn’t a West or a Vatican or a Protestantism. We don’t define ourselves in comparison with anyone else. We are what we are… they are what they are… that’s what sober normal people think, any road. The same is true of Russian and Holy Rus… we aren’t Russian because we’re “not Westerners”… we’re Russians as Holy Rus is the successor of New Rome… we owe NOTHING to the West, and certainly not to drooling Anglo American toddler “conservatives” or “liberals” (both are two sides of a perverted neoliberal ideology that’s satanic to the bone). Russia has its own inner logic, wisdom, civilisation, faith, and folkways. We wish to live in peace with all people of good will… however… all those who march on Russia will be put to death! As it was, as it is, as it ever shall be!

One last thing… Samuel K Huntington did NOT originate the idea of “civilisational blocs”… that goes back to S M Solovyov in the 19th century (he was the father of the famous religious thinker V S Solovyov). Sergei Mikhailovich was one of the greatest Russian historians, but how many Westerners are even aware of his existence?

SPC Sends Letter to Vatican Protesting Canonisation of Fascist Beast Stepinac

stepinac

Archbishop Alojzije Viktor Stepinac (1898-1960), supporter of the Croatian Ustaše massacre of Serbian Orthodox in World War II (shown here with Ante Pavelić, the Nazi collaborationist ruler of Croatia). If Rome wishes to be our friend, they must remove this thug from the list of saints.

_______________________________

The newspaper Politika wrote that the SPC gave a letter explaining its position regarding Alojzije Stepinac’s canonisation to Dominique Mamberti, Secretary of the Holy See for Relations with States, who was in Serbia. However, the message’s content remains unknown, but the newspaper noted that the SPC “undoubtedly doesn’t view favourably announcements that Stepinac could become a saint”. Mamberti will also take with him to the Vatican a letter from the Serbian president on the same subject. In an interview for Politika published on Sunday, SPC Patriarch Irinej Gavrilović said that Vatican announcements that they could canonise Stepinac by the end of the year came as “a great surprise” for the SPC… “In order for someone to be a saint, they must be a truly shining and holy personality and be accepted as such by other Christians”. Stepinac was a World War II-era Croatian Catholic cardinal, convicted after the war by the SFRY for collaboration with the fascist Independent State of Croatia (NDH)The NDH operated death camps during the war that were the sites of mass murder of Serbs, Jews, and Roma.

So much for Frankie Bag o’ Donuts and his smiling face. He supports the murderous Uniate pigs in the Ukraine, and, now, this. Stepinac said:

All in all, Croats and Serbs are of two worlds, north pole and south pole, never will they be able to get together unless by a miracle of God. The Schism is the greatest curse in Europe, almost greater than Protestantism. Here there is no moral, no principles, no truth, no justice, no honesty.

Note the toxic hatred of Orthodoxy, unconcealed, open, and unashamedly stated. His later supposedly anti-Nazi statements came at a time when Germany was obviously losing the war… I believe that they were opportunistic bullshit. The above is what he truly believed… it’s why he winked at the Ustaša massacres of Orthodox. Frankie Bag o’ Donuts has the right ideas on social justice (he shares many positions with HH, by the way… both HH and Frankie oppose the slobbering ignoranus “Christian” rightwing), but his rancid views on Orthodoxy, as shown by his actions, lead me to conclude that he is an enemy of Orthodoxy in general, and Russian Orthodoxy in particular (note well how Frankie treats his lapdog EP pals).

One last thing… the mentor of the rancidly Russophobic Joe Biden was a rabidly pro-Nazi Croatian Catholic priest… fancy that. One wonders if he told little Joe about the pleasant goings-on at Jasenovac and how its commandant was a former Franciscan. Just sayin’…

Patriarch Irinej Holds Memorial Service for Jasenovac Victims

00 Utstasha. 15.02.14

______________________________

On Tuesday, Patriarch Irinej Gavrilović, the First Hierarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) held a memorial service in Mlaka near Jasenovac, the site of a Croatian World War II death camp. The Nazi puppet fascist Ustaša régime of the so-called Independent State of Croatia (NDH) ran the prison and death camps. 22 April is the anniversary of the Jasenovac breakthrough staged by the camp’s prisoners. The day is also marked in Serbia as Holocaust Remembrance Day.

After liturgy led by Patriarch Irinej, Metropolitan Amfilohije Radović of Montenegro and the Littoral, and Bishop Jovan Ćulibrk of Lipljan, and other clerical dignitaries, a commemoration honoured Jasenovac victims. Serb Republic (RS) public broadcaster RTRS reported that Patriarch Irinej said, “The church in Mlaka is on land where many suffered, where they killed hundreds of thousands of martyrs just because they were Serbs and Orthodox believers. That was the only thing they were guilty of; the criminals thought they would wipe all Serbs and Orthodox people off the face of this earth. It can hardly be explained what drove people to commit such crimes. Members of another religion didn’t do this; (Catholic) Christians did this, and that’s what makes it terrifying. I don’t want us to condemn or imprecate them, but we must not forget this”. Director of the Secretariat for Religions Dragan Davidović attended the ceremony as an envoy of Serbian President Milorad Dodik, as did President of the Serb National Council in Croatia Milorad Pupovac.

During the Second World War, the village of Mlaka was a “collection centre” for Jasenovac death camp for women and children from the Kozara region. Over 30 children died daily from hunger, heat, and diseases. A number of execution sites were also in the area. Situated some 12 kilometres from Jasenovac, Mlaka was home to around 1,500 people before the war. The fascists took the entire village population, including 250 children, to camps in the spring of 1942. Today, the village is home to around 40 Serb returnees.

Editor:

Biden’s mentor was a pro-Ustaša Croat RC priest. Need I say more? The fascists have protection in HIGH Western places. How many Americans have heard of Jasenovac? For that matter, how many Americans know of the UPA murders of thousands of Poles and of the Balts’ willing collaboration in the Holocaust? Note well that those with much blood on their hands walked free whilst a little man like John Demjanjuk (an ordinary working stiff, a tractor driver and diesel mechanic) caught it in the neck. That sickens me. I fear that more blood will flow, not only in the Ukraine, but in the Balkans as well. It’s all due to American meddling in affairs in foreign parts not its own. When will they ever learn?
