Quote of the day

“In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law." Vladimir Putin, in an 8/4/2014 address to the Duma

Hell I'll learn Russian if Vlad wants to come and be president of the new Confederacy. Anything beats what we got now.

In a negative sense: Man of the 20th Century: Lenin.

In an ironically positive sense: Man of the 21st Century: Putin?

Russia seems to be the major holdout of historic Europe. While most of the rest of Europe is inundated with foreigners and multiculturalism, Russia resists.

Hopefully Russia doesn't fall into confusion and embrace mass immigration too. I fear the conflict with the Ukraine has Russia, to some degree, reidentifying with its Soviet past.

Come what may, the Southern Right seems to be awake. We can at least hold our heads high. Perhaps we'll surprise the world by countering Lenin's work.

Ema,

So you support Putin ruling over part of US territory? Obviously if someone's leaving US territory, it would be you over any of us natives.

It's ironic you call anyone trashy with your behaviour.

Oh by the way Ema it's y'all not you'all. That's just yankeefied BS.

Ema thinks that she is being witty and progressive by throwing out stereotypes of trailers, etc. because they are acceptable in the media. If someone said something with any other stereotypes, from Indian (dot, not feather) tax cheats or inner-city thugs and handouts, she would self-righteously screech.

Ema,

It is sad that you are so anxious to hate those of us that don't think the way you do. I might not agree with everyone on everything at this site, but I believe most of them would be try to be kind even to their enemies. The brevity of a weblog is hard to see the whole person. I hope you can find kindness and goodness in yourself and show it to someone, even if none of us get to witness it. You sound so often to be angry; but, I suppose it might be that you have been hurt. We all have! Please just try to take my words as an attempt to be kind to you.

Youse guys understand, don't cha, your man-love for that big-bad 'Vlad' ..., Vlad is a communist, a tyrant, and everything evil that you accuse President Obama of being; right? ... And Vlad has no USA birth certificate.

Why is it that you are _FOR_ big-bad Vlad, again??? Could it be that Vlad's parentage?

Putin is ex-KGB, a Communist, and yet he's saying all the right things that seem to get Westerners to stand up for him. My question is why?

Weaver said...

Al Benson Jr.,

Traditional conservatives like Putin's policies, not his words.

Russia has many flaws, but Putin's foreign and domestic policies are often traditional conservative.

Anti-communists: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, James Burnham, and Whittaker Chambers would have some praise for Putin today.

RT frequently posts articles by "capitalists" like PCR and Ron Paul, PCR is increasingly critical of America's "capitalist" system today also. Pat Buchanan has been interviewed there, and as you know he writes favourably of Putin.

I would prefer Jeff Sessions for monarch.

Communists are still Communists. The leopard doesn't change his spots. I recall years ago that the man who was editor for the Communist paper "Daily World" broke with the Communists and sought to expose them. A pastor I knew went to interview him and the ex-Communist, Louis Budenz, told him "Pastor, the Communists will tell you some truth, with the idea that if they tell you enough then you will swallow the lie at the end of the hook." If you want to look at my view of Russia Today, then go to my blog and check out an article I did about 2 years ago now--"From Russia Without Love."

You may not agree with me but at least you will get a different viewpoint.

Weaver said...

Al Benson Jr.,

Thank you. I'll read it.

A friend used to write how post-communist/socialist countries ironically have tended to preserve their traditions and ethnicity better than capitalist countries, over time.

True communists are capable of anything; caution is wise. In one of their holy books (Lenin? I don't have any of this organised, so I forget), they explicitly state that nationalism can be temporarily used. Many claim Marxists were involved in Irish nationalism, but such doesn't mean Irish secession was necessarily a Marxist victory.

That said, I do not believe "communists" are always true communists. Similarly "conservatives" are increasingly not true conservatives.

And the "far-left" in the US agrees with us, the "far-right", on about half the major political issues.

When we condemn communism, it's not the economic inefficiency that's most cursed. Many of the traits we find so odious are growing in the US, today.

Weaver said...

Btw, I just wanted to add:

While Russians might truly believe in Communism, even today; I doubt many nonwhites do.

China, I expect, just sees Communism as a means to power, a way to heal sick China.

Conservatives tend to be negative, so this is perhaps a very conservative comment, in a way: At times I'm a white inferiorist. If we say superiority is linked with an expanding population and territory, whites continue to lose ground. I don't mean recently but further back, to the oldest civilisations. You don't declare a people who are dying out, "superior".

And perhaps our fatal flaw is this foolish tendency of ours to embrace ideologies. No other race seems to share this flaw, though it could well be due to something other than genetics, such as death by prosperity.
