The Creepiness Of Putin-Love

BY Herschel Smith
9 years, 5 months ago

Via WRSA, this from Zero Hedge:

Here it is crucial to remember that no Ukrainian politician has any real power, not even Poroshenko, Iatseniuk or Turchinov.  The real rulers of the Ukraine are the US ambassador and the Kiev CIA station chief.  These are the people who literally administer the Nazi junta on behalf of the US deep state and its imperial interests.  As for the Ukrainian members of the junta, they all perfectly understand that their future is 100% dependent on being a faithful servant of the AngloZionist Empire.  They all understand that they came to power by means of an completely illegal coup, that the elections they organized this year were a total farce and that they will soon have to use repressive measures against their own population just to stay in power …

Simply put, there is nobody on this planet which has done more to oppose the AngloZionist Empire than Vladimir Putin.  I think that the hysterical and vicious demonization campaign against him in the western media is the best proof of that.

You can read all of it at Zero Hedge.  Good grief, and a thousand good griefs.  This comment best sums up my initial reaction to the post.

This guy is a moron. Example – “the AngloZionist Empire”. Nuff said. He’s just another facist with a Putin man crush.

No one has invaded Russia, but Russia has taken openly hostile action to regain territory lost in the Soviet break up. This is really quite undeniable unless you are a facist Putin man crusher. Poland and the Baltic states have been invaded by Russia so many times over the centuries. Their fear of Russia is quite real and well founded. When the Russians invade, there tends to be a lot rape and out and out murder of innocent people (like mass shootings of army officers, politicians, etc.) and the then general rape of the land and its wealth, with political and cultural oppression.

The idea NATO would ever invade Russia is perposterous (sic). A least the moron writer gets that right. It is not perposterous that smaller countries that have been invaded by Russians on numerous occassions throughout history might seek to voluntarily join a defensive alliance like NATO to ward off another Russina invasion. In fact, the act is quite rational.

Ok, so here come the America and Jews suck fusilade. If you think the USA is an opressive (sic) empire, how can you possibly support Russia? If you were logically consistant (sic), you would have to dislike both. The only conclusion is you are a facist with a supressed (sic) homo-erotic crush on Putin. I can really see no other alternative.

And I will say one more time, there is no grand plan, either by the Russians, or the US, or NATO, or the Jooooos. They are all people and, as such, are far too disorganized and incompetent to have anything close to a grand plan. Mainly, people just react to events.

Listen folks.  You can hate the EU/Fed/Banker cabal all you want.  But here’s a news flash for you.  Putin is a communist (or at the very least, a uber-nationalist and Fascist), and he wants to control the world like all Fascists.  He is a former KGB knuckle smasher and strongman, an enforcer for the state.  He has his own fan-boys, and he is the very definition of totalitarian.

Furthermore, the Soviet Union existed for one reason alone: communist-sympathizer FDR gave away Eastern Europe to create the communist bloc after World War II.  The very existence of the Soviet Union was illegitimate, and certainly the Ukraine wanting to exist as it did before being starved by the communists isn’t illegitimate.  It isn’t illegal, it is entirely understandable and sensible.  Most of the Ukraine doesn’t want to exist as communists, and they’re willing to perish for that belief.

The history of Russia is totalitarianism, witness the history of the Eastern Orthodox Church which has resolutely failed to speak truth to power, turning inward to liturgy and navel gazing exercises (as allowed by the state) rather than providing a check and balance on the power of the state.  Communists – whether Putin or Obama – are communists, and none of them deserve your support or advocacy.

The Putin worship I see around the web is both sickening and creepy, as sickening and creepy as Obama worship.  But specifically I’m saying to the American patriot community, it is unbecoming, weird and wholly inconsistent with your view of man, church and state.

    This is all propaganda, full stop. The amount of pro-Russian propaganda on the Internet is actually pretty shocking. They’re waging a pretty broad campaign across every traditional and new age media outlet.

    A sizable majority of Russians buy in to it – go read the comments on any RT article (RT is entirely state-run now). But a growing minority of Russians are fed up. They, along with The gutting of the economy and the Ruble, are going to be real problems for Putin, and they’re not going away any time soon.

    I don’t think we had that much choice in the matter, once Hitler decided to throw his last major reserves west into the Battle of the Bulge (and were we that eager to storm Berlin?). But I grant you FDR was on Stalin’s side and this made a difference at the margins.

    There is a more innocent, or shall I say, less ominous interpretation of Putin’s Ukrainian moves: Russia’s demographics are horrible, and he can prolong the game by grabbing more ethnic Russians in the near abroad. On the other hand, those people he claims to be rescuing are from what I’ve read being subject to “general rape of the land and its wealth”, such as having their bank deposits stolen (in theory they can get back “about $15,000” per account, but needless to say the situation is in reality Kafkaesque even for that). Of course, it’s all blamed on Kiev.

    Turns out Putin is enabling people to act on their man crushes; linked by Drudge, “Putin Decree Enables Foreigners To Serve In Russian Military.”

    The Russian Republic isn’t the international hegemon, the U.S. government and it’s European toadies are. One look at the world wide string of overseas bases tells you that much.

    It should be equally obvious that “someone” is encouraging war among largely Chriatian whites. That someone made up 80-85% of the Bolsheviks during the Red Revolution that murdered 70 million Russians, almost all of them Christians.

    Really, folks look at the evidence, it’s right in front of you.

    I have no need to disavow you of the notion that the Jews control the world. That wouldn’t be of any benefit for me.

    As to the idea that Russia (and it isn’t a “Republic” by any wild stretch of the imagination) isn’t an international hegemon, I’ll grant that they’re not, at least not an efficient one, but not for lack of desire.

    It would be nice NOT to have a string of bases overseas, but unfortunately the powers that be see this as a corollary to open borders. I would greatly prefer that we simply close our borders (both to ILLEGAL and to LEGAL immigration). We’ll call that a “full-on Ron Paul.” Unfortunately, not even Ron Paul wants to pull a full on Ron Paul, and his naive son doesn’t either.

    The diagnosis the libertarians make is the same failure as those make who see the Jews as responsible for the world’s ills. Ron and Rand believe that if America would stop meddling, everyone would love us. Jew-haters believer that if the world were rid of Jews, the problems would go away.

    The boogey-man is different, but the result is the same. The era of the lion laying with the lamb could be ushered in if it were only for (fill in the blank). But Jeremiah 17:9 doesn’t just speak to the Jews, or interventionists. It speaks to all mankind. In a world without Jews or American interventionists, someone else would be trying to control and destroy the lives of Pat, Herschel and everyone else.

    I’m sure there are evil Jews just like there are evil Muslims. But as for the Jews as a whole, I’m convinced that the only think keeping them from being wiped from the face of the earth is the advocacy of American Christian Dispensationalists (you know the kind I’m talking about, they’re strewn throughout the South), who believe that the Jews are God’s chosen people. Of course, as a Calvinist I disagree, but that’s not the point. Loss of that Christian advocacy group would mean the end of the Jews.

    Herschel, of course I never said “Jews control the world” or anything like that. The Rothschild Family, of which there are branches in England, France, Germany, and Italy, do control the entire European banking system, and much of the US Federal Reserve. It was the Rothschild owned Bank of England who forced George III to fight the Revolutionary War. This isn’t a theory, all are current or historical facts.

    The Rothchilds don’t control banks in China or Russia, one of the core issues with what’s going on now. Further, the Russian government has arrested and either executed or imprisoned many of the so-called Oligarchs that were pulling the strings in Russian industry. Most of them were non-Christians of various stripes.

    Israel is factually controlled by illegal immigrants from Europe who were permitted to go to Palestine and then assisted in taking the country from those that had lived there for over 2000 years. There was never a country called Israel prior to 1948. We can get into early Christianity if you wish, my study of that inspired me to join the Greek Orthodox Church late last year. While I was raised Southern Baptist, I hadn’t darkened the door of one of those churches in over 35 years, and wouldn’t dream of doing so now.

    Jews have been thrown out of every country they’ve managed to inhabit for the last 1700 or more years, ask yourself why. Consult the Justinian Codes, put in place by Byzantine Emperor Justinian in the 7th century. By the way, the Byzantines built St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Interesting history that has connections to today.

    I’ve written many times that the glaring fault of libertarianism is their view of open borders. That’s a result of, at least partially, the fact that they grant no value to culture as private property. My view is that my culture, utterly southern, is my property, as it is of millions of other southern men and women, and we can act singly or in concert with each other to defend that.

    I don’t like the fact that there are 35+ mosques in North Carolina, 18 mosques in South Carolina, or over 40 in Georgia. I also don’t like the fact that there is a “Holocaust Memorial” in downtown Charleston, South Carolina as if South Carolina was involved with anything that happened to Jews in Europe.

    What I’d like to see is the ability to speak of problems caused by certain groups honestly and openly. All groups.

    That’s easy, Pat. It’s because there have always been bigoted, dishonest assholes like you around, and there have always been just enough ignorant, angry souls who would rather buy the Jew-baiting shit you’re peddling than take responsibility for their own failures. And that’s what kept hatemonging, neo-Nazi shitbags like you in business (barely) for the past 2000 years.

    Brings to mind the Rich Mullins song ” Save Me”; ” save me from Soviet propaganda, LORD please save me from Washington.” So much bad history here on both sides. I think that the USA invaded Mexico more times than Russia invaded Poland.
    As for the Church ‘ speaking truth to power’, when has that ever happened on a regular basis?
    Churches in most nations have been and are institutions of the state, including here in the USA. Romans 13: there is no power but of God…If the Church would simply speak the truth, that would help. But that is not likely. Might lose the tax exemption or access to government money to help the poor. I’m on God’s side and I think that makes me an enemy of Putin and Obama.

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, and no. I know this because my professors in systematic theology, church history and historical theology kicked by butt. Virtually all of the creeds and councils of the early church – Nicea, Chalcedon, Orange – were desired to go some way they didn’t by the emporers (and had they decided slightly differently would have empowered the state). But they didn’t.

    Furthermore, I can cite the reformation, the Scottish reformation and not the least of the rebellions, the American war of independence. The role of religion has been greatly understated, an issue about which I have written extensively. E.G., see

    So study Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, all eight volumes. I have.

    The anemia of the modern church isn’t an indicator of how it always was.
