Missing your sanction-blocked Russian propaganda? Oh? I got your Russian propaganda RIGHT HERE!

America you don’t really want to go to war.
America its them bad Russians.
Them Russians them Russians and them Chinamen. And them Russians.
The Russia wants to eat us alive. The Russia’s power mad. She wants to take our cars from out our garages.
Her wants to grab Chicago. Her needs a Red Reader’s Digest. Her wants our auto plants in Siberia. Him big bureaucracy running our filling stations.
“America” by Allen Ginsberg

Seems to me that if the Biden wants to go to war with these folks the Biden needs to ask itself  one question,

    Russia is not a country, per se; it is a universe in microcosm. It is a vast geographical territory (go look at a world map. I’ll wait).

    Within its land mass are peoples of such varied origins that it is nearly impossible to catalogue them all. It is Asiatic; it is European; it is Turkic; it is damn near everything you can think of except African. Its ancient peoples crossed over the Bering Strait and became the natives of the American continent.

    Russia’s history is so long and convoluted that it takes entire volumes of encyclopedia pages and still exceeds the capacity to describe it entirely. I am descended from its main people group, the Slavs. They are a weird combination of Scandinavian (Kievan Rus) and Asiatic (Mongol/Tatars). So it should come as no surprise that Russians can exhibit all the characteristics of the Berserkers and the Mongol Hordes–like Conan the Barbarian without any redeeming qualities–yet at the same time, produce some of the world’s most talented ballerinas, musicians, composers, and of course literary types.

    It is a tragedy beyond words that the excesses of the Tsarist regime led to the Marxist/Leninist regime, and a further tragedy that rapprochement did not replace rivalry after the conclusion of WW II. That possibility was opened once again after the fall of the USSR, but many in the West were still thinking in terms of confrontation, not cooperation.

    Perhaps I am being all dewey-eyed, but I wish the paths of America, which inherited the best of the Enlightenment, and Russia, the defender of Orthodox Christianity against the thousand-year onslaught of Mongols and Islamic invaders would have converged rather than separated into competing cultural and geopolitical streams. I find it the height of irony that it appears Russia can again be regarded as the defender of orthodoxy and America (at least a large part of it) is viewed as a malign entity bringing degeneracy wherever it extends its influence.

      ” I find it the height of irony that it appears Russia can again be regarded as the defender of orthodoxy and America (at least a large part of it) is viewed as a malign entity bringing degeneracy wherever it extends its influence.”

      Two minds with but a single thought.

      • Mike Austin August 17, 2022, 4:16 PM

        Think of the Biden regime requiring the sodomite rainbow flag to be raised at every US Embassy. Nothing could possible describe what you wrote better: The US as a promoter of “degeneracy wherever it extends its influence”.

        The US regime despises its own flag yet worships the flag of anal sex. I hope when Christ returns He makes it quick.

      Steve (retired/recovering lawyer),

      Thoughtful, cogent analysis. I suggest another facet of “Russia” which is fundamental to your first line –

      “The Russian language is the most popular in the country, with about 260 million speakers and is legally recognized as the country’s official language at the national. There are other 35 languages which are used as official languages in different regions of Russia. The country is also home to about 100 other minority languages.” (excerpt from: https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/what-languages-are-spoken-in-russia.html )

  • Mike Austin August 17, 2022, 3:59 PM

    Propaganda? What part of the video was false?

    Russia has been around in one incarnation or another for 1400 years. The soul of the people who inhabited Russia has been discernible for almost as long. Which culture has been so fruitful? Which nation today can produce a Chekov? A Dostoyevsky? A Nureyev? A Rimsky-Korsakov? An Ilya Repin?

    The Russian people have suffered more intensely than any people in all of History. Yet here they are.

    Could the US suffer a siege of Leningrad? A Stalingrad? Can the US produce a Tolstoy? A Peter the Great? Could the US defeat a Napoleon?

    Do the Russians pollute their own children with drag queens and transgenderism? Do the Russians celebrate the practice of sodomy?

    There is a reason why the Russians consider themselves as “The Third Rome”. It would be in your interest to find out why.

    • Vanderleun August 17, 2022, 4:01 PM

      Well, sometimes I post under the sign of Sardonicus.

      • Mike Austin August 17, 2022, 4:06 PM

        Duly noted.

        What an odd world when I can say that I would rather be governed by a Putin than by a Biden. Or perhaps not so odd at all.

        • Vanderleun August 17, 2022, 4:14 PM

          “The Tsar is far” but “The Biden is trying to climb into my wallet.”

          • Mike Austin August 17, 2022, 4:22 PM

            The US regime instructs me that Russia is my enemy. Yet it is the Biden regime that daily works to destroy me and my way of life. A Tsar I can tolerate. A bunch of progressive, God hating parasites I cannot. One monster 5000 miles away versus 5000 monsters one mile away. Hmm…let me think…

            • Vanderleun August 17, 2022, 4:23 PM

              Perhaps this is why God made Killdozers with flamethrowers.

              • Mike Austin August 17, 2022, 4:32 PM

                Ten thousand Killdozers. One hundred thousand Dorners. One million flamethrowers.

                Problems solved.

                • Terry August 17, 2022, 7:44 PM

                  Agreed. I want a Killdozer and a flamethrower.

                  Take down the concertina wire fence to begin with.

                  Flood the tunnels, and so on . . .

        • John the River August 18, 2022, 4:48 AM

          I’d say “ruled by” rather than “governed”. And neither, thank you.

          • Jack August 18, 2022, 7:07 AM

            Yo también! Fuck both of them and any who would assume their rolls or try to fill their shoes. I don’t need no stinkin’ leader, president, premier, tzar or other Grand Poobah. I can manage my own affairs just fine, thanks.

  • John A. Fleming August 17, 2022, 5:02 PM

    I do not like what our government has done to our relationship with Russia. We should be loyal and friendly competitors, and when we can cooperate together for good in this world. It seems as if an unseen malign power has manipulated the world post-Soviet to keep us apart.

    I do not know what to think of this Ukraine business. The USA Deep State is as dirty on this as Russia is, we have been using Ukraine as a catspaw against Russia since 2014, and the corrupt Deep State has been enriching itself. They say Ukraine is a corrupt failed state, one of the worst, but all of our people were in on the corruption, eager to take their cut.

  • jd August 17, 2022, 5:37 PM

    “In Russia”, quite the film. Thank you.

  • Concerned American August 17, 2022, 5:54 PM

    What jd said.

    Thank you, Gerard.

    • TeeRoy Jenkins August 18, 2022, 10:36 AM

      I never understood why, when the Soviet system collapsed we didn’t embrace them and ally with them. We are not so culturally apart as some would have us believe. I think it possible that they feared two “white” nations of particular masculinity to be allied. I also believe this Ukraine thing is the globalists attacking the Russian elite for not wanting to join the club. That and maintaining that sweet grift pipeline.

  • ghostsniper August 17, 2022, 6:01 PM

    I was born in January and I prefer cold weather over hot.
    I could live there.
    And there’s plenty of there to live in.

  • Casey Klahn August 17, 2022, 6:04 PM

    If you’re a Russophile, you must watch The Russian Ark, which I’ve mentioned before. I’m glad I went there after 2014 and Crimea, but before their invasion of Ukraine this year.

    What I learned is that they did not really recover from the WWII siege of Leningrad. What is now St Petersburg is a hell-haunted ghost city, with a small population and no cats or dogs on the streets. I wish I could’ve gone to Moscow before she became me non-grata.

    The Russian collective characteristic is one of hurt feelings. They forever consider themselves not-invited to the greatness of Europe. It’s a type of low-level personality disorder.

    I was watching for the scene where babushka is escorted across the active fire-fight village square by the Russian soldier – tracer rounds zipping past.

    Also, I’m glad somebody is actually fighting Nazis somewhere in the world. I mean, our ANTIFA as much as disappeared when Biden came to office, and that leaves a huge Nazi-killin vacuum, doesn’t it?


    • ThisIsNotNutella August 17, 2022, 6:35 PM

      I dunno… I see 2022 Year Russophobia as a kind of inability to update one’s priors in the light of new evidence. Or alternatively innate orneriness and contrariness — something many of us here, myself included, would be guilty of. We all have to be ornery about someone or something and it’s no great secret who I picked for that singular honour.

      Previous para applies to reasonably well-educated, intelligent, and informed types. Normie McGrillerson and the rest of the Ace of Spades Brigade obviously don’t belong in this category. Dumb as Rocks is Dumb as Rocks and Pavlovian (heh) slobbering is par for the course.

      I *can* understand deeply-held and carefully nurtured ancestral grievances colouring one’s views. I’m All-in for Atavism ™. Provided it’s the game everybody gets to play. That being said, there are some fundamental unaddressable at present issues regarding said atavism and ***Who Decides*** US foreign policy.

    • jiminalaska August 18, 2022, 9:33 AM

      “consider themselves not-invited to the greatness of Europe. It’s a type of low-level personality disorder. ” Just ’cause you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they ain’t out to get you. Russia’s non-invited to Europe or America period.

      & yes, the Russia Ark is well, extremely well, worth the watch.

      If one’s interested in the results/effects of the sanctions, 6 months in, I feel this 21 minute video presents an honest picture; https://youtu.be/UUGAmBGbg1U

      • Casey Klahn August 18, 2022, 2:47 PM

        You’ll note that the narrator guy in the Russian Ark says what I have about their inferiority complex. It’s a problem and it brings wars with it.

  • ThisIsNotNutella August 17, 2022, 6:58 PM

    Here’s something wonderfully Russian — albeit sung by Ukrainians.

    Rachmaninov’s Vespers.


    (The Iconography (sic) in the video is all wrong. But that’s likely just because the Brilliant Classics folks don’t know Shit from Shinola.)

    Irony of Ironies, my favourite recording of this is by the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir. I’ve yet to find a Russian Russian recording that presses all the right buttons.

  • Stalingrad Fountain August 17, 2022, 8:04 PM

    Dem Russians that kicked the shit out of Napoleon and Hitler?
    Kursk or Prokhoravka July 43 is still one of the biggest battles in human history regarding armored vehicles, tanks, airplanes, and troops but the tip off ahead of the Zitadelle offensive from British signal intercepts is rarely mentioned and there was plenty of time to prepare defense in layers with even women and children out there working on it for the Motherland.
    Ivan doesn’t scare easily and Russian civilians won’t be soft and neurotic either.

    • Casey Klahn August 17, 2022, 8:20 PM

      We’re still paying the debt for Lend Lease. Wait…

      Kursk was a great defensive victory.

    One of the best books I borrowed from the library this year was “Russia: Land of the Firebird”.
    Covers the earliest history of Russia, pre-Mongol, ends the beginning of WWI.

  • John Venlet August 18, 2022, 8:05 AM

    Nicely done little video on the vastness of Russia, which naturally includes a vastness of peoples. I’d wager that most of these vast conglomerations of individuals desire to live as free men, just as most Americans desire to live as free men. Those who wish to rule and wield power are always in the minority, just as those who wish to be ruled are in the minority, whether here in the U.S.A., or Russia.

  • Dirk August 18, 2022, 9:44 AM

    Na The United States doesn’t hate Russia, DC hates Russia.

    We the People are almost exactly like the Russian population. We are all just trying to make it to the end. To live love, laugh, using the tools available, the resources provided by the creator.

    As for 1000 Dorners, na give me a Good rifle,,,,, with Fantastic optics, a high end ranging tool, and a fast shoot computer.

    Either a Gray Hound bus ticket, or an Amtrak train ticket. Eat at taco wagon, roadside fruit stands. Cash is king.
