1 July 2015. A Popular Russian Demot…

00 God is with us. 300615

____________________________

The picture of the soldier and the cross with the legend с нами Бог (s nami Bog: God is with us) is very popular in Russia and Novorossiya today. The American-fomented aggression in the Ukraine has galvanised people like never before in modern times. It’s like the VOV! It’s like the Patriotic War of 1812! It’s like the people responding to Pozharsky and Minin in 1612! It’s like the people rallying behind Grand Prince St Aleksandr Nevsky to drive out the papist invaders in 1242! That’s why President Putin has an approval rating of 89 percent. The Russian people… indeed, all the decent and right-believing people of Holy Rus… are ready to fight the Anglo pigs. If the USA were to touch one drop of Russian soil… and that WOULD include the Crimea and Novorossiya… all bets would be off. Russia has a LOOONG history of thrashing invaders. Russians don’t give a good goddamn until the plug-uglies from foreign parts show up. When they do, the Westerners find out (again) that you don’t mess with the Bear.

Bears DO tend to get gnarly when provoked… just sayin’…

29 June 2015. Translated Russian Demot…

00 to the fallen heroes of novorossiya. 290615

______________________________

I’d like to remind you of the wicked thing that Victor Potapov wrote at the end of his rant about Stalin:

The effort to rehabilitate the persona of Stalin is a genuine assault by the enemy of our salvation upon the Russian people.

That is, he accuses the Donsky Voiska of being Satan’s minions because they march under the Red banner! He accuses all of us who support the creative synthesis of Orthodoxy and communism found in the Peoples Republics of being Satan’s servants. He’s accusing His Holiness of being Satan’s legate for being a leftist. In fact, he’s throwing all of us who aren’t in his little rightwing cabal to the demons.

Reflect on this. He doesn’t care. He gets a fat pay packet from the US government for broadcasting lies. When he made his accusations, he spat on the graves of all the heroes who fell in the defence of Holy Rus. When he made his accusations, he spat in the faces of the families who lost children and loved ones in the Uniate terror bombardments. When he made his accusations, he spat on all Orthodox Christians who follow His Holiness and demand Social Justice. Victor Potapov is a soulless running dog who’s been on the CIA payroll for decades. Bear that in mind whenever you read his rants. He wants a society where the rich run roughshod over all others… he proves that by his close associations with the Moonie-run Washington Times and with the neocon American Enterprise Institute. He introduced Paffso to all the extremist Far Right crowd in the District.

You can stand with the suffering but tenacious Orthodox people of Novorossiya… or you can stand with scheming rightwing scumbags like Potapov and Paffhausen who support the ravening foes of Holy Rus and the Holy Church. It’s your choice… choose wisely…

Potapov’s Anti-Stalin Rant in Its Entirety… in Both Russian and English Versions

00 Novorossiya demot 01. 290615

THIS is what Victor Potapov spat on with his anti-communist rant. One wonders… if he hates Holy Rus so, why do we allow him to continue to function as a Russian Orthodox priest? Let’s not forget… Potapov is a longtime and willing whore for the CIA… he holds (or held) a “red” official (“diplomatic”) passport that exempted him from customs searches… he was a responsible official, not an ordinary employee (he was the head of Religious Propaganda at “Radio Liberty”, a well-known CIA front). In short, treachery has paid him well (literally).

_________________________________

I am going to handle this differently from most posts. First, you’ll get the Russian original… then, I’ll post the verbatim English translation posted on the ROCOR official website… lastly, I’ll post my comparison of the posted translation with the Russian original. My comments will follow the third version… however, do reflect on this… Potapov chose to post the Russian original on Pravmir, a somewhat questionable and uneven website with ties to the semi-heretical Kochetkov/Aleksandr Men crowd… interesting company for a loudmouth ROCOR “traditionalist”, isn’t it?

Протоиерей Виктор Потапов: Сталин использовал Церковь, а не возрождал её

Протоиерей Виктор Потапов, настоятель храма святого Иоанна Предтечи в Вашингтоне, клирик Русской Православной Церкви Заграницей о реабилитации личности Сталина.

Я никогда не жил в России, но помню, как в детстве бабушка с дедушкой рассказывали мне о тех ужасах, которые Сталин вытворял с нашим многострадальным народом, и я воспитывался на их рассказах. Потом, когда я вступил в сознательный возраст и начал читать книги по новейшей истории России, то сам смог убедиться в правоте их слов. Во время моей учебы в семинарии, мы, студенты, глубоко почитали новомучеников российских, узнавая о жутких подробностях их страданий. Для меня всегда было очевидно, что Сталин тиран, один из череды самых страшных тиранов XX века – Ленин, Сталин, Гитлер, Мао Дзэдун и другие.

Я работал на «Голосе Америки», передавал материалы о репрессиях, достаточно тщательно исследуя все, что шло в эфир. И у меня никогда не было вопросов о роли личности Сталина в истории России. Поэтому сегодня меня поражает беспамятство русского народа, ведь еще живы старики, которые помнят имена погибших от репрессий – своих родных и близких. Как можно в начале XXI века с ностальгией относиться к тем временам? Десятки миллионов были убиты в результате репрессий.

Я был на Бутовском полигоне еще до того, как там был построен собор в честь Новомучеников и Исповедников Российских, и узнал много новой информации о массовых расстрелах, которые происходили там. Уничтожалось несколько сотен человек ежедневно. Как можно ежедневно убивать по 200-300 человек – это не укладывается в голове нормального человека. Старого архиерея, митрополита Петроградского Серафима (Чичагова) чекистам пришлось везти в Бутово на карете скорой помощи, а к месту расстрела нести на носилках – вот до чего доходило безумие власти.

Второй раз я был на Бутовском полигоне в 2007 году, когда собор был торжественно освящен Святейшим Патриархом Алексием II и Первоиерархом РЗЦ митрополитом Лавром. И никому из нас, представителей РЗЦ, в голову не могло прийти, что настанет такое время, когда в России попробуют реабилитировать имя Сталина.

Достаточно авторитетно высказался по этому поводу митрополит Иларион (Алфеев), четко сказав, что Сталин был тираном, и та победа, которую Россия одержала в Великой Отечественной войне, произошла благодаря народу и вопреки Сталину. Ведь в 30-е годы шли массовые репрессии, был уничтожен весь генеральный штаб, весь цвет русской армии. И тем не менее Россия с огромными потерями победила в войне, потому что народ защищал свое Отечество. Конечно, многих отправляли умирать за Сталина, но мало кто был вдохновлен его личностью, его образом палача. Люди умирали за Родину.

Плодятся различные мифы о личности Сталина. В частности, о том, что он восстановил церковную жизнь в России. Но ведь Сталин возродил видимость Церкви для того, чтобы использовать её, повысить патриотизм в годы войны – это совершенно очевидно.

Митрополит Сергий (Страгородский) первый обратился к народу со словами «братья и сестры» в начале войны, а Сталин просто подхватил это выражение. На Западной Украине и в Белоруссии происходило стихийное открытие храмов на оккупированных немцами территориях, и Сталин не мог не заметить, что открытие тысяч храмов на Украине и в Белоруссии привело к подъему народного духа. Он понял, что может использовать Церковь в своих целях. И он освободил архиереев, провел Архиерейский собор, так как смотрел в будущее, знал, что советский народ победит и можно будет оккупировать Восточную Европу, используя для этого Церковь.

С чем связано такое возрождение популярности Сталина? Возможно, это малая осведомленность и плохое знание собственной истории значительной частью населения бывшего Советского Союза. Но конечно это очень нас тревожит. На Западе сегодня идет пропаганда против России, и нам, русским американцам, очень тяжело видеть, что мы сами даем для этого повод. Когда нам показывают статьи или высказывания различных общественных деятелей, восхваляющих Сталина, мы просто пребываем в растерянности. Мы пытаемся оправдываться: «Так думают не все», но факты остаются фактами.

Или высказывание епископа Городецкого и Ветлужского Августина о Сталине, оно же опубликовано, можно прочитать и сделать выводы, а ведь это иерарх Русской Православной Церкви. Опять же приходится оправдываться, а это неправильно. Очень сложно спокойно реагировать и обходиться без эмоций, когда черное выдается за белое.

Я очень надеюсь на то, что разум возобладает, и это безумие будет остановлено, что найдутся смелые историки, которые озвучат правду о Сталине и помогут людям разобраться в истории страны. Потому что все происходящее сегодня вокруг реабилитации личности Сталина – это самое настоящее нападение врага нашего спасения на русский народ.

Stalin Did Not Resurrect the Church, He Exploited It

Protopriest Victor Potapov, Rector of St John the Baptist Cathedral in Washington DC, a clergyman of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, discusses the rehabilitation of Stalin.

I never lived in Russia, but I remember how as a child my grandparents told me about the horrors Stalin wrought upon our much-suffering people; I was raised on these stories. Later, as I matured and began reading about the recent history of Russia, I became convinced that they spoke the truth. During my time in seminary, we students had profound reverence for the New Martyrs of Russia, having learned the terrifying details of their sufferings. It was always apparent to me that Stalin was a tyrant, one of the great terrible tyrants of the 20th century: Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse-Tung and others.

I worked for Voice of America {he stretches the truth here… he worked for Radio Liberty, a propaganda outlet aimed directly at our Russian motherland: editor}, and broadcast material on the repressions, painstakingly researching everything we broadcast. I never doubted the reality of the role Stalin played in Russia. That is why I am appalled now with the amnesia of some Russian people, because many who remember those who died during the repressions-their relatives and friends-are still alive. How can there be any nostalgia in the 21st century for those times? Tens of millions were killed during the repressions.

I visited Butovo Square even before the Cathedral to the Holy New Martyrs and Confessors was built, and I learned yet more about the mass executions that took place there. Several hundred people were shot there every day. Executing 200-300 people a day is simply incomprehensible to a normal person. An old archpastor, Metropolitan Serafim Chichagov of Petrograd was taken by the Chekists to Butovo in an ambulance, and then taken by stretcher to his place of execution-this was the madness of the regime at the time!

The second time I went to Butovo Square was in 2007, when the cathedral was solemnly consecrated by His Holiness Patriarch Alexy II and the First Hierarch of ROCOR, His Eminence Metropolitan Laurus. Not one of the representatives of the Church Abroad present could imagine that the day would come when people in Russia would attempt to rehabilitate the name of Stalin.

His Eminence Metropolitan Ilarion Alfeyev was absolutely correct in his authoritative statement that Stalin was a tyrant, and that Russia’ victory during the Great War of the Fatherland should be credited to the Russian people and not Stalin. There were mass repressions in the 1930’s-the entire staff of generals, the very best of the Russian Army, was annihilated. And yet Russia, despite enormous losses, won the war, because the people defended their Fatherland. Of course, many were sent to die for Stalin, but few were inspired by his personality, recognizing him as an executioner. No, people died for their homeland.

Various myths about Stalin are spreading, one in particular, that he reestablished Church life in Russia. Yet Stalin restored the image of the Church in order to exploit her, to use the Church to elevate patriotism during the war-this is blatantly obvious.

Metropolitan Sergius Stragorodsky first appealed to the people with the words “brothers and sisters” in the beginning of the war, and Stalin simply appropriated the expression. In Western Ukraine and Belarus, churches were opened on a massive scale in German-occupied territories, and Stalin could not but notice that the thousands of reopened churches elevated the people’s morale. He realised that he could exploit the Church towards his own goals. He freed bishops from prison, convened a council of bishops, and looking into the future, he knew that the Soviet people would win and could occupy Eastern Europe, and used the Church for this.

Whence this resurgence in the popularity of Stalin? Maybe it is ignorance, poor knowledge of one’s own history by a large percentage of the former Soviet Union. And this is alarming. The West is leading a campaign of propaganda against Russia, and it is hard for us Russian Americans to bear that our own compatriots give reason for it. When we are shown articles or statements by various public figures in praise of Stalin, we are distraught. We try to justify it by saying “not everyone thinks this way,” but facts are facts.

Take the published words of Bishop Avgustin of Gorodetsk and Vetluzhsk… and this is a hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church! One tries to make excuses, but that is wrong. It is difficult to react calmly, without emotion, when black is turned to white.

I hope that reason ultimately prevails, and that this madness comes to an end, that courageous historians speak the truth about Stalin and help people make sense of the history of their nation. The effort to rehabilitate the persona of Stalin is a genuine assault by the enemy of our salvation upon the Russian people.

Boldface is where the English translation was adequate… not that I’d do it in precisely the same way (as translation is an art, not a science), but it did do a passable job of expressing the Russian in English (actually, I found it a bit forced, but that’s a stylistic, not material, caveat).

******

This rant is a mixture of bullshit, bravado, and obfuscation. However, before we get into that, let me share some Cabinet reactions to Potapov’s unhinged diatribe:

  • As for Potapov, yes, he’s just following the “party line” to earn some brownie points.
  • It has come to my attention that Fr Victor Patapov is having kittens over one Vladyka Augustine of Gorodets who publicly praised Stalin (as did Fr Dimitri Dudko and so many others). Apparently, he’s protesting about this to the Synod of Bishops. For his part, people told me (hearsay, but reputable hearsay) the His Grace asked if Fr Victor ever lived in the USSR. Upon getting a negative answer, His Grace replied, “Then, it isn’t his business, really”.

Let’s keep this simple. This insubordinate priest had the goddamned gall to attack a bishop of the Mother Church on the ROCOR official website. Such a usage implicates the ROCOR SOBs in that criticism. It implies that the ROCOR episcopate shares this notion and accusation. One NEVER sees things of this nature on patriarchia.ru or in the ZhMP! NEVER! Potapov deserves deposition for that, but he has too much clout for that, sadly enough. I’d say that the best thing that the ROCOR SOBs could do is to retire him “for health reasons”… and remove him from the District, to prevent him from further collaboration with the enemies of Holy Rus and of the Holy Church. Potapov aided the Uniate/schismatical murderers of our children in Novorossiya by this intemperate rant. Potapov denied the very Christian principle of repentance in this rant. The Commies had a “come to Jesus” moment, and they turned away from their previous path… look at this image from the late Sov times:

______________________________

Ponder this… in the 1990s, Potapov aided the CIA campaign against the canonical Church, he helped to bring such questionable figures as Rusantsov and Pashkovsky into the ROCOR. Where were the commies? The Komsomoltsy defended the churches, bishops, and clergy from American-paid mobs (cheered on by the likes of Potapov). Today, Comrade Zyuganov acknowledges the pivotal role that spirituality plays in everyone’s life. As an antidote to Potapov’s lies, listen to this:

Easter Sunday celebrates the triumph of life over death, of eternity over extinction, loyalty over oblivion. These bright days of the beloved people’s holiday of Easter fill young and old, our towns and villages with joy and gladness.

The West is the eternal enemy of the Slavs; they bring confrontation and strife to our fraternal peoples. They kill our close blood-kin in internecine war, in the heart of the Russian World. In the fraternal Ukraine, in Novorossiya, was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning (Gospel according to St Matthew, 2.18). The forces of evil gang up on us, seeking to destroy our historical memory, to impose their will upon us, to subjugate us to “Herodian” laws and regulations. This isn’t the first time that we’ve faced such a challenge; every other time, we overcame our foes due to the resistance and self-sacrifice of our peoples, to our indestructible faith in justice, and to our trust in the triumph of good.

I’d add that Potapov is a traitor to the Motherland who’s gone grey in service to the godless Republican “conservative” opponents of Holy Rus and the Holy Church

In a famous speech delivered over a century ago, The Meaning of St Sergei for the Russian People and State, prominent historian V O Klyuchevsky said, “One of the hallmarks of a great nation is its ability to rise to his feet after a fall. No matter how hard the humiliation, at the appointed hour, it’ll gather its scattered moral strength, and embody it in one great man or in a few great people who’d put it back on its temporarily-lost direct historical road… in bringing forth the memory of St. Sergei, we examine ourselves compared to his moral reserves. The great builders of our moral order bequeathed them to us, we update them, adding to them as we spend them”. We must do the same… check our spiritual roadmap, update our moral stock, replace incurred expenses, overcome spiritual schisms, comparing our historical era to our great ancestors and teachers. After all, historical fate sets before us a choice… we can stay in the marketplace of evil, or, we can flee from that, not retreating, to find solid ground in the works of righteousness and justice. Much serious effort lies ahead of us, but our great guide St Sergei Radonezhsky is with us, inspiring and enlightening us with the light of Goodness, Truth and Truth.

Today, during the bright feast of the Resurrection, our thoughts are with our Ukrainian brothers, who hope to see a sign from the powers-that-be, who hope for a victory of light over darkness. We’re shoulder to shoulder with fraternal Belarus. We’re with you, our brothers and comrades. St Sergei taught us that only love and unity will save us. That’s how we saved ourselves and saved the world from the “brown plague” seven decades ago. Contrary to the vapourings from the West about “the end of history”, recent events show that the historical process continues and that it still progresses towards the good and to good-will. However, this will only happen if its true creator… the people… preserves its historical memory and its true ideals.

I give you my most sincere greetings on the Bright Feast of Christ’s Easter; I wish all of you the “unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Epistle of St Paul to the Ephesians 4.3) during these happy days. I wish you love and unity, for if we preserve an undying commitment to the ideals of good and justice, then, a public and political revival will be possible!

To the Bright Paschal Feast, dear friends!

On the eve of this bright universal festival of the Nativity of Christ, we appeal to all those who cherish the “simple human values”… the enduring traditions of our national history and culture, the eternal ideals of Mercy, Goodness, and Justice. Our ancient traditions show us that the Christmas holiday is a family affair. At the centre of it all are our families…  our parents, our children, and our grandchildren, indeed, all the people closest to us. During these bright days, we reflect on our lives; we make plans for the future. On this holiday, our neighbours, colleagues, and friends are either present or in our thoughts. This means that we meditate upon our common past and discuss the future. After all, we’re one big family; we have one Motherland… Russia, our united indivisible Mother-Motherland.

Comrades! I’d like to give you my greetings on the holiday of the Great October. Today, there’s much talk about the unity of the country, the unity of society. However, unity is born over centuries, built on victories; it leads to respect for our history, culture, language, and traditions. When the unified Russian state arose, its main unifying factor was the Orthodox faith. Since we were united, we won great victories. In this case, it’s worth recalling that Russia gathered 180 peoples and nationalities under its banner; we didn’t destroy any language, any faith, or any culture. Under the Soviet state, even the smallest peoples had a written language.

https://02varvara.wordpress.com/2013/11/17/comrade-zyuganov-on-red-square-we-must-remember-the-lessons-of-october-in-the-context-of-our-thousand-year-history-and-move-forward/

Yes, today’s world is full of injustice. Ordeals bedevil us; wars and natural disasters overwhelm people. The global oligarchy spreads amorality and misanthropy; their destructive values exacerbate human suffering. Unfortunately, not only careless foreigners, but our fellow Russians also forget, charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy (1 Timothy 6.17). They surrender to reckless money-grubbing aspirations, but such won’t buy them happiness. Those in power ignore the basic moral code; they plunge the country and people into a vortex of suffering and unrest. It looks as though they’re unaware of the biblical warning that God will render to every man according to his deeds (Romans 2.6). Therefore, let’s work hard for a just future; let’s remember our ancestors’ warnings about the futility and dangers of a life based on the passion for profit. Let’s not forget for we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing outAnd having food and raiment let us be therewith content. (1 Timothy 6.7-8).

Of course, one can’t speak for everybody in the country. Personally, my point of view is that I’d give them a good taste of the belt… I’d whip them and sent them home to mommy and daddy. This would take the place of a judicial punishment. I’d say that they wouldn’t engage in such outrageous and blasphemous behaviour again. [The action at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour was] a slap in the face to all Orthodox believers. I agree with the idea that the trial made ​​the situation worse. They used it as a comprehensive attack on Russia’s spiritual foundations.

We should listen carefully to the writer Valentin Rasputin. Rasputin stated recently, “There’s been a very serious struggle against Christianity as a cultural phenomenon. After all, the foundation of our European civilisation is Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. As for communism, they rewrote it, they decided to build the Kingdom of God on Earth, and they made a lot of mistakes, and committed ill-advised actions. It seems to me that [Pussy Riot’s action] was an attempt to turn against our spiritual foundations and roots, which, in any case, lie in Orthodoxy. This action was extremely dangerous for all concerned”.

https://02varvara.wordpress.com/2012/08/22/zyuganov-sez-that-pussy-riot-deserved-a-good-taste-of-the-belt/

You get the message… if you’re against the communists, you’re against morality, spirituality, and patriotism… and Potapov is against the communists… he supported the greedy grasping unpatriotic draft-dodging coward Willard Romney… shitbirds of a feather do flock together. If you can see shitbirds flock together… well, look at the good birds flocking together:

THIS is what our Holy Patriarch thought of President Chávez…

You can stand with HH and stand for Holy Rus, the Holy Church, and Holy Justice… or you can stand with Victor Potapov, and stand for theomachistic hubristical American aggression, for shameless perverted heterodoxy, and for greedy grasping crapitalist injustice.

The choice IS yours…

To paraphrase Potapov himself (on himself!):

The effort to whitewash American aggression is a genuine assault by the enemy of our salvation upon all decent people.

I need say nothing more…

THIS is What Victor Potapov Attacks… WHICH SIDE IS HE ON?

I find it amusing that Victor Potapov incessantly spews unhinged and hateful shit about Lenin, Stalin, and communism. Here’s something from one of the groups that I follow. I don’t totally agree with it, but I’d observe that these people are MORE truly conservative than Mr Potapov is! After all, Mr Potapov is (or was) a mercenary paid hireling of the US Government (Radio Liberty IS part of the Langley intel apparat)… need I say more?

We spread the Soviet values, family values, love to the motherland. We won’t tolerate on this page western fags and sick. They’re attacking us with propaganda, but we’ll answer them. I need your help comrades. Spread the healthy values of socialism, in the name of Lenin and Stalin. Long Live our SOVIET MOTHERLAND!

I prefer the company of people like this to the company of political whores like Mr Potapov. I do daresay that I’m not alone in that. Reflect on this… Bernie Sanders supports Family Values MORE than Potapov et al do… interesting, no? After all, Mr Potapov supports the Anti-Life Programme of the Republican Party. He calls himself “Pro-Life”… fancy that…
