NY Times: One Year Into War, Putin Is Crafting the Russia He Craves
I have mixed feelings on what’s described in this article. The positive news from this whiny Times piece? The cancer of libtardation is being systematically eradicated in Russia as wartime anti-NATO patriotism continues to be stoked. The negative part? World War II mythology — specifically, the falsely stated cause of that history-shaping war and the absurdly inflated casualties of the Russians — is being used as a propaganda tool to whip up today’s patriotic “anti-Nazi” (anti-NATO) fervor. The big and virtually irrevocable lie about “Nazis” — a monstrous mendacity deeply drilled into the minds of Russian Normiedom for eight decades now — is serving the noble goals of nationalist revival and winning the propaganda war against the “Nazi” gangsters of NWO Ukraine.* From the article // The questionable means: “Schoolchildren learn in a new weekly class that the Russian military has always liberated humanity from “aggressors who seek world domination.” (oh barf!) “New museum exhibits put on by the state have titles like “NATOzism” — a play on “Nazism” that seeks to cast the Western military alliance as posing a threat as existential as the Nazis of World War II.”* From the article // The noble ends:
“Liberalism in Russia is dead forever, thank God,” Konstantin Malofeyev, an ultraconservative business tycoon, bragged in a phone interview on Saturday. “The longer this war lasts, the more Russian society is cleansing itself from liberalism and the Western poison.”
Like I said, mixed feelings.
Now, the Russians may not be able to realistically revise the mentally embedded useful mythology, but once again — for the benefit of those of “you guys” here’s the deal: The German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 was a 100% justifiable and necessary preemptive operation. Some background Information: With Germany preoccupied by its war with Great Britain (started by Britain):
- Stalin violated the Soviet-Polish Non-Aggression Pact by invading Poland in 1939
- Stalin violated the Soviet-Finnish Non-Aggression Pact by invading Finland in 1939
- Stalin violated a provision of the Soviet-German Non-Aggression Pact (1939) by invading Lithuania in 1940
- Stalin grabbed a piece of eastern Romania in 1940
Hitler knew that Stalin, in secret collaboration with the British, was planning to totally break the Soviet-German Non Aggression Pact by launching a massive surprise attack upon anti-Communist Germany. We’ll let Hitler explain, in his own truthful words:
“Already in 1940 it had become increasingly clear from month to month that the plans of the men in the Kremlin were aimed at the domination, and thus the destruction, of all of Europe. I have already told the nation of the build-up of Soviet military power in the East during a period when Germany had only a few divisions in the provinces bordering Soviet Russia. Only a blind person could fail to see that a military build-up of world-historical dimensions was being carried out. And this was not in order to protect something that was being threatened, but rather to attack that which seemed incapable of defense … I may say this today: If the wave of more than 20,000 tanks, hundreds of divisions, tens of thousands of artillery pieces, along with more than 10,000 airplanes, had not been kept from being set into motion against the Reich, Europe would have been lost. “Tell it, just Tell it!
But who will tell today’s Rooskies?
Millions of Soviet troops were quickly taken prisoner because they were packed along the front line, in OFFENSIVE positions. The Germans then advanced easily across undefended territory. There was so little defense behind the front lines because Stalin was planning an invasion of eastern Europe, NOT a defense of Russia. After the war, the prisoners shown above would be condemned to death in Stalin’s gulags. In Stalin’s mind, There were no prisoners of war, just traitors.
Ironically, the Russians of today and the Germans of the 1930’s-40’s are and were fighting the very same forces of Globalism — the “liberal New World Order” which Hitler referred to as “international hyenas” and Putin now calls “Satanic scum.” Another amazing similarity relates to the type of characters who fled Germany and the ones who are now leaving Russia.
* Hitler / 1933:
“The guilty ones are right here with us. They live among us and abuse day in and day out the hospitality granted to them by the German people.
In gratitude for that, while millions of our own people are without work and go to pieces, a clan of Jewish intellectuals, professors and businessmen agitate hate against us in the world.”
* Putin / 2022:
“The West will try to rely on the so-called fifth column, on national traitors, on those who earn money here with us but live there. And I mean ‘live there’ not even in the geographical sense of the word, but according to their thoughts, their slavish consciousness — I do not judge those with villas in Miami or the French Riviera or who can’t get by without oysters or foie gras or so-called ‘gender freedoms. The problem is they mentally exist there, and not here, with our people with Russia.
But the Russian people, will always be able to distinguish true patriots from scum and traitors, and simply spit them out like a gnat that accidentally flew into their mouths, spit them out on the pavement.”
By the way, the two leaders were both talking about the same people as the headlines below, from 2022, confirm.
Ironically, and in a good way, the Hitler – Putin comparisons are actually spot-on correct…. but WW2 mythology lives on in Russia nonetheless.
