7 June 2014. In Defence of A G Dugin and V A Kucherenko (“Maksim Kalashnikov”): The Western Pundits are a Buncha Maroons

00 Maksim Kalashnikov. 04.06.14

“Maksim Kalashnikov” (pen-name of V A Kucherenko)

______________________________

Western pundits have a particular hatred for A G Dugin and “Maksim Kalashnikov” (pen-name of V A Kucherenko). They’re Nazis, they’re purveyors of hate, and they spread lies about the USA! Oh, the humanity!

Of course, that’s a load of horse hockey, bullshit, and outright fabrication. Dugin was a neo-Nazi in his youth… he admits it. That’s no secret. Hey, the USA had no problem with real Nazis after World War II… it put them into influential positions in the Bundesrepublik and made sure that their pensions reflected their service to the Nazis (on the other hand, the USA saw to it that career officers/NCOs of the NVA received no pensions… for the USA, SS guys were OK, but NVA guys were anathema). Dugin hasn’t been such since the end of the ‘90s, though, when he embraced Orthodoxy. Why the beef with him? Aleksandr Gelyevich is the main ideologue of Eurasianism… that’s why the Americans hate him so. Eurasianism sees Russia as distinct from the West, a part of a Eurasian civilisational bloc independent of and not intellectually dependent on the West and its crackbrained neoliberal (“conservative”) notions. You see, the Western pundits take a fact (Dugin was a National Bolshevik in his youth) and imply that he hasn’t changed. Of course, the real reason for the Western hatred is that Eurasianism has support in high circles, and America (in particular) hates the fact that someone’s exposed their deceitful machinations. Is Dugin perfect? Certainly not… however, the picture bruited by Western pundits isn’t righteous either. Remember… they DO have an agenda and it affects their statements.

Kucherenko simply is too popular for the tastes of Western pundits. He’s not only popular… he’s influential, too. Vladimir Aleksandrovich has the ear of V V Putin and D A Medvedev. Simply put, he’s more anti-American than D O Rogozin is (which is saying a lot, to be sure) and he wishes that we restore the best features of the USSR. Of course, what compounds it is that Kucherenko’s books are best-sellers, which means that a large segment of the educated public agrees with him (which angers the juvenile brat Americans to no end). His views aren’t as developed and intellectual as Dugin’s are (Dugin, after all, IS a professor of the Philosophy Faculty of MGU), but he’s got the ear of influential people in the apparat (besides ties to Putin and Medvedev, he’s personal friends with S S Sobyanin, the mayor of Moscow).

In short, Western accusations that Kucherenko and Dugin are “National Bolsheviks” or “Neo-Nazis” are contemptible and not worthy of refutation. Only vacuous neocons or fatuous paleocon sources such as The American Conservative advance such arrant nonsense. Never forget, American “conservatism” isn’t only Liberal, its Radical Liberalism at its worst. True Conservatism implies accepting Tradition and Authority, two concepts rejected by American “conservatives”. They’re grasping and drooling money-worshippers; they idolise the American Revolution, which brought in a government and state founded on warmed-over deistic Enlightenment hogwash. That is, the present American Nihilism (found in both “liberals” and “conservatives”) was implicit in the very founding of the USA as a Radical Republic. Mirabile dictu! Are leftists more “conservative” than American “conservatives” are? They ARE, indeed… American righties only worship money and power, and to hell with the rest… as the present condition of the USA testifies to. Why should you attend to their opinions of Russian political/social figures and intellectual concepts that they barely know, let alone understand? I’d go so far as to say that most material on these men in English is black propaganda… it distorts the truth at best, with most of it being outright lies and falsehood.

America never was “the sole superpower”. The righties hate Kucherenko and Dugin for saying so openly (by the way, that was the real reason for the sanctions against D K Kiselyov… the Americans especially hated his statement of fact, “Russia can turn America into a pile of radioactive ash”). So should we…

Majority of Russians Regret Breakup of USSR

00 Unknown  Artist. We're Coming to the Victory of Communist Labour. 1970s

We’re Coming to the Victory of Communist Labour

Unknown  Artist

1970s

______________________________

On Tuesday, independent pollster Levada Centre said that more than half of Russians polled regret the breakup of the USSR; they believe that we could’ve avoided it. Of 1,600 respondents polled in 45 Russian federal subjects, 57 percent bemoaned the collapse of the USSR, whilst 30 percent said that they didn’t regret it, and 13 percent had difficulty answering. Seniors tended more to nostalgia than younger people. Only 37 percent of respondents aged 25 to 39 said that they regretted the collapse of the USSR. However, that figure reached 86 percent amongst those 55 and older. Only 29 percent said that the breakup was inevitable, whilst 53 percent said that we could’ve avoided it. The rest of the respondents couldn’t say one way or the other. The USSR formally ended on 26 December 1991.

Editor’s Note:

When asked who the most influential politician in Russia was, VVP answered, “Gennady Zyuganov”. Pro-Western journalists sniggered at that. I believe that Vova knows the country better than they do. As a former member of the organy, he has no illusions about life, none at all. He knows that the “provinces” want the USSR back, and that the KPRF is the only real political party in the country. Besides that, only the KPRF is looking to the future in a real way, Gennady Andreyevich wants the young firebrand Sergei Udaltsov to replace him as leader when he steps down.

VVP wants no chaos when he steps down. The country agrees with him. I believe that Sergei Udaltsov will be the next real leader of Russia, and he may very well restore the old Union under the guise of the Eurasian Union (EvrAsS). Russia will end its present infatuation with the West and sweep away the godless neoliberal crapitalism now regnant. I wouldn’t want to be an oligarch, then… there’ll be a new emigration (the Affluent Effluent will flee to the USA, where the Republicans will ooh and ah over them)… the citizens of the Union will say, “Good riddance to bad rubbish”, and most of the world will agree with them. I wonder what the ROCOR will do when (not, if) that happens (will Potapov, Lebedeff, and Whiteford flip yet again?)… perspirin’ minds wanna know!

30 December 2012. Home Truths From a Priest in the Rodina

00 Buddha Quote. 07.12

______________________________

This is from an MP archpriest in the Western Ukraine:

I was disgusted to hear of your “noble” priest’s mouthing of dirty White Guard propaganda. I could vomit! This is a good example of why many of us have issues with the ROCOR being included again in the Orthodox Church. Ask that prince what WORK his family did to allow them to live in luxury… in palaces, with titles, and with balls and festivals. Ask him why his fathers lived in laziness whilst mine slaved in fields and mines, and why his lived off us. Ask him where the money that WE produced went! More than likely, it went to his grandfathers and their lazy families… and their prostitutes and perversions.

I’m so sick already of how American, Australian, and Canadian clergy judge us. They want to tell us about our Lenin, and about what we “must” do to be “good Orthodox Russians”. To them, we are forever SOVIETS! They must be quiet! Silence them! These criminals and prostitutes of Hitler betrayed our Russia. We should spit on them still! Vlasov was and is a traitor! We’re sick of them; they set fire to Russia, and, then, ran away to America and France, telling us what to do. Filthy! I almost hate them. They helped to destroy our dear Soviet Union, so, now, we all suffer under all this new criminal régime, but those who live abroad praise it. I’m sorry, but I do despise them. I hope we’ll soon have our USSR again, god willing!

Today, we have poverty, people without homes, dirty filthy rich parasites, whores, gays, drugs trade, pornography, sexualised children, racists, and all manner of dirty and deathly crime… thank you, ROCOR whites! Thank you! Before, we had a good life and peace. Now, you “corrected” this. Thanks to you! I’m Soviet forever! Please, know that I pray for you at the Holy Table, but I only tolerate your priests and church. Forgive me for speaking out!

******

This was from a priest in the Western Ukraine. When you support Victor Potapov, you spit on him. When you support James Paffhausen, you spit on him. When you support Rod Dreher, Freddie M-G, or Terrence Mattingly, you spit on him.

You can stand with REAL Orthodox Christians such as HH, Fr Vsevolod Chaplin, and this anonymous priest (I removed all traces of his contact information), or you can stand  with phonies like the White Guard ROCOR fanatics (many ended by working for the American special services), the SVS/St Sergius loons, and the konvertsy meatheads. That’s your Real World choice; that’s what on offer, for there’s nothing else.

Not all White émigrés are nasty… not everybody at SVS and the Paris Exarchate are heretics… not all converts are self-centred ignoramuses… but all too many are. You know that I have the habit of speaking the truth. This is one such time. Compare what this confessor archpriest said to the dreck issued by the ROCOR recently. I have much respect for the ROCOR, but I shan’t be silent in the face of arrant falsehood and subservience to the Western powers-that-be. That’s Sergianism (sucking up to the godless powers-that-be) of the vilest sort.

In the late 90s, Victor Potapov showered all sort of lies on the head of His Holiness Patriarch Aleksei Ridiger when Aleksei was at Georgetown University to receive an honorary degree. Today, he’s the centre of a Far Right cabal that mouths loyalty to the Centre, but it’s actually in the thrall of the worst elements in the American political apparat. It’s apparent that all too many haven’t changed their spots. They’re more apologists for Western crapitalism than they’re Partisans of Christ. That’s especially true of the clergy and laity who take Uncle Sugar’s shilling (and there’s more than one of those). Hmm… that includes Potapov, Freddie M-G, and Alexander Webster, and that’s not exhaustive… Dreher and Mattingly are stink-tankers, that makes them K Street parasites; that’s the same as sucking on Uncle Sugar’s tit.

Note well how some loud sorts are either dependent on Western government monies or they’re of the Affluent Effluent. I think that I’m not the only one to have noticed this. Nevertheless, there are only two real choices… Christ and the Mother Church… Mammon and the Godless West. That’s it; there’s nothing else out there. There’s no such thing as “American Orthodoxy” or “Western Orthodoxy”… there’s no historical grounding for either contention. Your choice is stark… stand with the Mother Church or stand with Mammon. You know what Our Lord Christ said on that.

I’ve chosen. I don’t need to tell you where I stand. Now, you must do likewise… for the times demand it. If you do nothing, that’s a choice, and the deluge will roll over you, regardless of your “neutrality”. So, choose well. God be with you…

26 July 2008. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words…

The Rebirth of the Russian Fleet

There’s a site I log on to occasionally for a good laugh. It’s called La Russophobe, and one can tell that the author takes themselves VERY seriously. As for me, I know that the next pratfall is just around the next corner, and that God has a good amount in His pocket full o’ fun to keep us humble. That being said, the person who runs this site believes in something called the NEO-SOVIET UNION. Let’s all tremble together in unison! OOOH! The boogeyman’s gonna git ya! Of course, that’s pure bilious rot and moonshine. However, one can’t argue with such sorts, not only is the position ridiculous and the pleasure transient, but these people are IMPERVIOUS. Instead of bullet-proof armour-plated ships, they have logic-proof armour-pated (no, I did NOT misspell, I do mean “armour-pated”) brains. However, I do offer this picture. If this be the Neo-Soviet Union, I say, let there be more of such! Let’s all raise a glass to the end of totalitarianism! As for the La Russophobes of this world… leave ’em be, don’t waste your God-given time. ¡Salud!
