26 May 2016. A Word to the Wise From the Russian Bear

00 bear with flowers

______________________________

Why does the Anglo intel apparat always get Russia not only wrong, but spectacularly wrong? Firstly, it’s getting crank sources. There are four main groups providing raw intel on Russia. Firstly, there are anti-communist émigrés… mostly Poles, Galicians, Balts, and Jews, but some KONR filth collaborationist Great Russians, too. This group hates Russians (or the present Russian government), so it’s clear that any intel that they provide is biased, inaccurate, and a caricature of reality. Secondly, there are Russian religious nutters… “Evangelicals” and oddbod schismo “Orthodox” mostly (the USA subsidised the schismos Rusantsov and Pashkov, for instance). They feel themselves “outsiders”… but they want to impose their peculiar notions on the larger society (just like the American “Evangelicals”). The third group is pro-American English-speakers… they have a “thing” for everything American and want to ape the USA… unfortunately, for the Yanks, this is a laughingly small set. Fourthly, are the Germans… resentful of their defeat in the VOV and mindful of their “superiority” to “inferior” Slavs. After 1945, German mercenaries like Gehlen entered the service of the Western intel services, providing it with much inaccurate reportage based on their racialist prejudices, not actual reality. The USSR was in no position to launch a general war in 1945 (nor in 1965 nor in 1985)… the USA was. Besides that, some Germans wanted revenge for their defeat in the VOV, so they fed crank intel to the Americans, who ate it all up uncritically and without close inspection (especially, anti-New Deal Republican filth… starting with McCarthy and continuing to the present).

Ergo, much of what passes for “knowledge of Russia” within the Beltway is dangerous twaddle… but here’s the sobering part… those with access to the nuclear codes believe this arrant bullshit. God do preserve us…

Glory to the REAL Heroes… Salamdzheri Alikhanovich Kokaev

During the VOV, his comrades pulled Salamdzheri Alikhanovich out of a blazing tank, badly burned, with his hands gone. However, he survived the loss of his hands, earning a Doktora Nauka in historical sciences, becoming a professor at North Ossetia State University (SOGU).

18 May 2016. On Discerning the Worthy and the Unworthy… How One Can Tell the Difference

00 leningrad. ussr. russia. blokadniki 180516

______________________________

In speaking of those worthy of respect, I should say that I’ve been privileged enough to have met blokadniki… those who survived the Siege of Leningrad (the famous “900 Days”). One notices serenity and wisdom in them… knowledge that only such a tremendous and horrendous event could bring one. I found this true of most VOV survivors… for the war marked all those in the USSR, as the war took place on its soil; it didn’t happen in far-off foreign parts. I should mention that President V V Putin’s older brother died in the Siege… he was one the fascists’ victims… he was only Untermenschtum (subhumanity) in Western eyes. By the way, that’s why the memory of the war is still green in the Russian soul… it wasn’t some faraway event… it happened right in the homeland, and it was, perhaps, the most vicious war of the 20th century.

Sadly, the Western “conservative” movement and its demented votaries are the antipode of the blokadniki. Western neoliberalism, both “conservative” and “liberal” has degenerated to a feral vicious level. Greed is its most conspicuous characteristic. Allied to that is a callous viciousness towards those that they consider “inferiors”. It doesn’t matter if a drone strike kills wedding partiers and not “terrorists”… they’re all just dirty Muslim wogs who support terrorists, anyway! It doesn’t matter that welfare payments aren’t enough to support someone… if they were any damned good, they’d be working and not a drag on the public! It’s OK to lie about foreign countries and leaders… America is Number One, always has been, and always will be! Russia and China are evil for not kissing our ass and telling us that we’re Number One and always will be!

Having met both sorts mentioned above, there’s no doubt in my mind that American Neoliberalism is satanic, and that anyone who supports Chilly Hilly (or any other Establishment Dem) or any Republican is either a dupe or they’re someone who bought into this ideology knowing how evil it is, but doesn’t care because it benefits them. The first sort is simply clueless and ignorant. The second sort has bought into evil with knowledge of what it is… but they’re successful, dontcha know! They’re respectable, dontcha know! They’re religious, dontcha know! They’re more moral than the rest of us are, dontcha know!

I have met both sublime people and loathsome people… all too many of the latter espouse “conservatism”. Have a care with anyone who either calls themselves “conservative” or issues favourable commentary on “conservative” talking points. They may very well get uncouth with you… it’s all too common amongst such sorts; they get extraordinarily nasty when vexed or disagreed with. Here’s a point to be especially wary of… many of the most wretched sorts are outwardly polite and “oh-so-nice”… that is, until you cross them… do have a care, the times aren’t good and they won’t get better for some time yet…
