5 September 2014. Sov Pop Stars of the 80s Rock the Old Sov Anthem

00 Konstantin Kinchyov

______________________________

Pop stars of the 80s rock the old Sov anthem. Most people in the USSR were patriotic… there weren’t any political prisoners left by the end of the 80s. Don’t listen to lying shits like Potapov… he had the effrontery to be disrespectful to Patriarch Aleksei Ridiger in public (at Georgetown U, where the whole world saw him criticise our patriarch at the behest of his CIA paymasters). Don’t listen to those who dragged our Church through the mud via their alliance with Western intel agencies, K Street stink-tankers, and the Republican Party. Today, the people of Novorossiya want the USSR back… they want a Soviet state with justice for all, honour to Christ’s Church, and a fair share-out of goods. That’s NOT what the Republican Party wants…

In this time of war and crisis, it’s imperative that we step away from it from time to time… at the height of the Blitz, Brits sang and smiled with George Formby… that was a HEALTHY thing. Have a smile…
