Westerners Flock to Nemtsov’s Obsequities… Yank Ambassador and Brit John Major Amongst Mourners

00 evil uncle sam. 28.05.14

THIS is who mourned for Nemtsov… any questions?

______________________________

Read this. The elephant groaned and gave birth to a mouse. Virtually no one showed for this scumbag zapdnik’s funeral. There were no huge demonstrations… there were no mass outcries of grief. The government sent two minor figures, Deputy Chairmen of the Government (what ignorant Westerners call “Deputy Prime Ministers”… they’re not that, but the Westerners refuse to see Russia and its institutions for what they are)… the grave is at a second-tier nomenklatura cemetery in the far outskirts by the MKAD. Oh, yes… the US Ambassador showed and cried crocodile tears, as did ex-British PM John Major… the common people were noticeable by their absence. Don’t make a fuss over Nemtsov… he died as he lived… a lawless grasping scumbag just like his Western backers. I gotta say, the Westerners had CHUTZPAH… they iced him and then they showed at his funeral lauding him to the skies (of course, they deny it… has Langley EVER fessed up to anything?). Even Don Vito never sank so low…

They Cry About Nemtsov? WHAT ABOUT THE DEAD KIDS?!?

00 little girl killed by the Uniates. DNR. 02.03.15

_______________________________ 

The death of Nemtsov equals the deaths of how many children in the Donbass? We’ve had enough whining and crying about this punk! Did they cry for the kids killed in the Donbass? Those scumbags supported those shootings! Forgive us for shortening your life. Mr Nemtsov supported those who killed this girl. Hey, McCain, any drop of care about this innocent baby? Or, is this just COLLATERAL DAMAGE? All of these phonies weep and whine about this scumbag! Who mourns for this child, killed in the Donbass by executioners supported by that bastard Nemtsov?

Aleksandr Averkov

This girl’s name was Sofiya. They killed her on 27 August 2014 in the Donbass. Nemtsov supported those who killed her. However, they raise a howl over Nemtsov’s death, but the death of this girl went unnoticed. The question arises… why was Sofiya’s life CHEAPER than Nemtsov’s life?

It doesn’t surprise me that the people in the West, especially in the USA, are totally unaware of what a scumbag Boris Nemtsov was. He was part of Yeltsin’s rat pack that raped Russia during the 1990s. When his boss finally stepped down from the presidency under the threat of prosecution for crimes against the Russian people, Nemtsov moved away from politics, but kept on wheeling and dealing. You can be sure that he had major connections in organised crime circles. In any case, the 30,000-50,000 that crawled out from under their rocks to mourn this lowlife are just a drop in the bucket. The Russian people across the country know what he really was… a lowlife bloodsucker who lived high while pensioners scavenged in rubbish bins for their next meal. If I ever go back for a visit, I’ll be sure to take some time out to piss on his grave!

This is why the sucking up to the Uniates by Freddie M-G, Paffhausen, and Vassa Larina is so obscene, beyond-the-pale, and blasphemous. Our children die at the hands of fanatic Galician Uniate/schismatic nationalists… those I named suck up to their Uniate murderers. I say, “The tree is known by the fruit thereof”… and we all know Who said that…

One last thing… the crowd that came out for the Nemtsov march wasn’t even one percent of Moscow’s population. That’s why Putin allowed it… he knows that he has the support of the majority of the people, so, he knows that these loud, posturing, and smarmy scumbags can’t hurt him. I say, “Expel these bastards to the West, so that they can experience the joys of a Free Market ‘recession’ at first hand”. Yes… that would be a PERFECT punishment for them! Paffso, Freddie, Potapov, and Vassa could run a soup kitchen for them!

Navalny Case: Who Needs Terrifying Stories About Stalinism?

freedom-of-information

Methinks that the pot calls the kettle black… after all, the West gave us the Patriot Act, free gropes from the TSA, and indefinite detention at Guantánamo… and listens in on your Facebook conversations. Fancy that… 

______________________________

No one was more excited about the guilty sentence to Aleksei Navalny than those Western and domestic media that have, over many months, supported the theory of “screw-tightening” in Russia. This theory says that the “tightening of screws” in Russia began with the election of President Putin last year. The excitement of “Russia-as-new-dictatorship” theorists about Navalny’s sentencing is understandable. Every believer is happy to see signs of his faith being true. However, this theory is at variance with many facts, for example, with appointments of Gaidar-type liberals {“conservatives” in American dialect: editor} to key positions in the Central Bank and in the government, Putin’s cautious position on the situation around Snowden, which was respectful to the USA, continued operation, and even the growth in number of anti-Putin media outlets in Russia, etc. For these doomsday theorists, ever longing for signs of ascendant totalitarianism, this verdict of a court in the provincial city of Kirov was a Godsend… a popular opposition activist, just 37-years-old (most probably, a “young reformer”) taken into custody in the courtroom!

Poorly-concealed satisfaction was visible in the indignant headlines of the Western media… their authors are glad that everything turned out exactly as they’d expected. For example, here’s the headline of an article in the American edition of Forbes: “Putin Declares Himself Dictator with the Navalny Verdict”. In addition, the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita compared the trial of Navalny to Stalin’s show trials of the 30s. Rzeczpospolita never bothered to remind its readers what would’ve happened to people who’d try greeting convicted politicians with flowers and pancakes in Stalin‘s times, as Navalny’s supporters did after his release (under Stalin, people were shot for milder “offences”). For truly impartial analysts, the severe verdict of the judge in Navalny’s case (5 years), was a surprise. Adam Reihardt, editor-in-chief of the English edition of the Kraków-based magazine New Eastern Europe, offered a bold theory… maybe, the sentence was severe just because the district court in Kirov so decided:

I was convinced that Navalny would get a suspended sentence. It was kind of a surprise that he was given prison time. Apparently, the Russian judicial system turned out to be more independent than it’s usually portrayed in the Western press. Moreover, maybe, the prosecutor’s office [Prokuratura] was simply not prepared for such a strict sentence. So, the incident can be viewed as proof that in Russia prosecution and court are actually better separated than we in the West are led to believe.

Why was it that the much-demonised Prokuratura, not the defence, filed a petition to release Navalny from custody? At first, the supporters of the “tightening of screws” version couldn’t explain it; why, the very body that they said drove the screws, came to the defence of the imprisoned young man. Then, a revolutionary explanation appeared… allegedly, the appearance of protesters scared the authorities, several dozens of which police detained in the centre of Moscow and released before dawn (not quite the Stalinist way to do it). No one bothered to read Article 108 of the Criminal Procedure Code, which says that a person accused of embezzlement or other mild crime isn’t considered convicted, only as an accused person, until the court’s verdict takes full legal force. This Article also stipulates that the authorities shouldn’t take such a person into custody, or, worse, place them in prison. This is exactly Navalny’s case… he was found guilty by the court, but pending appeal, his verdict didn’t receive full legal force. The Prokuratura pointed this up, and the court freed Navalny. Now, he’s back in Moscow under a written pledge not to leave the city. On Saturday, Navalny said his campaign for Moscow Mayor would continue.

However, questions remain. For example, what’s so surprising about Navalny’s release from custody? Why was it such a disappointment to some well-oiled “protest machines” in Russia and the West? Could it be that some well-to-do gentlemen would prefer Navalny to be a jailed martyr rather than an active and unremarkable candidate in a local election? Previously, we saw similar actions during the Pussy Riot case, when the defence lawyers obviously preferred the loud and scandalous jailing of their clients to them gaining a quiet and dull release. In fact, it seems no coincidence that during Navalny’s trial, almost all Western media writing about Russia (and some in their Russian amen corner), waged a campaign of “preemptive discreditation” of any possible court verdict save a total acquittal. They declared any other judgement by the court unjust in advance. United Russia Gosduma deputy Andrei Klimov considered this a form of pressuring the court, “When the British urge us to establish the rule of law in Russia, they shouldn’t be hypocritical. In a state with the rule of law, politicians don’t have the right to influence a court, including foreign politicians”.

In this context, the alarmist warnings of the American and the EU embassies in Russia demanding that we stop “the tendency of suppressing civil society in the country” sound somewhat woolly. The West might notice that attempts to put pressure upon the Russian authorities usually produce the opposite effect. For example, US Vice President Biden’s statement, made a few years ago in Moscow, that the USA wouldn’t like to see Putin’s return to the Kremlin, on the contrary, contributed to his return. As we see, then, they put pressure on the executive arm; now, they apply it to the judiciary. Nevertheless, the result may be the same. Therefore, there’s no need to save us from ourselves and to make irresponsible statements about a “return to Stalinism”… totalitarianism and Stalinism were horrible things, and there still are people in Russia who know them not from hearsay.
