Farewell, Readers!

Are YOU a neo-Soviet reptile?

Are YOU a neo-Soviet reptile?

After a months-long crisis of conviction, I unequivocally reject my support, rationalization and in a sense enablement of the reptilian thugs, fascists and kleptocrats who stalk the parapets of the Kremlin. I sincerely apologize to my loyal readers for so cynically misleading them for more than a year and polluting cyberspace with my lies, disinformation and irrelevant whataboutism. For the truth of the matter is that until recently I was, as a Boris from London rightly put it, a high paid propaganda master working for a Kremlin web brigade dedicated to suppressing democratic sentiments, rehabilitating Stalinism and getting the West to drop its guard to the rise of neo-Soviet dictatorship in Russia. But inspired by the example of Korchevnaya, like her I decided to follow my conscience and decisively reject my former work as a Kremlin shill and amoral Putin lackey. In doing so, I hope to mitigate at least a little of the damage I did – I can now only hope God could forgive me, for I don’t believe I ever could.

Speaking of which, while the above is bad enough my moral relativism and cold-blooded support of Communism, an atheistic cult and abysmal failure that extracted a terrible price on people, a price that is still ongoing in Russia, is simply unforgivable – in retrospect, it is astounding that a human mind could still defend that failed “ism”. Even my morally blind-sided justification of it on environmental grounds is no longer relevant, what with the IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri now admitting anthropogenic climate change is a massive hoax after all and top NASA climate scientist James Hansen, one of the most outspoken advocates of limiting greenhouse gas emissions, now saying he bought Al Gore’s clever ruse to promote global totalitarian socialism “hook, line and sinker”.

For the reality is even more disturbing than the one painted by La Russophobe. Yes, it is true that Russia is internationally isolated, in a demographic death spiral and its economy is rapidly falling apart at the seams because of the accumulated tolls imposed by endemic corruption, authoritarianism, socialism, criminality and abortion. But these Mongols with tanks led by their Dark Lord Putin hate the West so much that even now they are preparing, as Golitsyn prophesied, to resurrect the Soviet Union, collapse the US dollar and launch a devastating nuclear strike against the citadels of Christendom in the final phase of their centennial plans for world Communism.

I contacted members of the pro-democracy community in Russia about my defection, and let my former Russophile “comrades” know in no uncertain terms where I stand and what I think of them now. Most of the latter, like the slimey neo-Soviet reptiles they are, replied I’ve lost my mind (no doubt with a view to justifying the use of weaponized psychiatry against me). The liberals were much more positive. For instance, Lucas now wants to rechristen me as Boromir Ingtar Ben-Karlstein in the River Thames. La Russophobe also chimed in – boy, was she quick! – ripping Putin a new one and gushing over my return to the light, though she said redemption would be a deep, painful and mentally challenging process. She said she could help me through it, sending me her London address, as well as a shot of her nude and a sketch of her ass. I’m not sure why she did that, but the point stands that the neo-Soviet chickens are coming home to roost and little time remains – what must be done, will be done, as La Russophobe sees fit. And she wants me to come over.

So that’s it folks. No more posts. This ugly relic to neo-Soviet hypocrisy of a blog will be deleted in a few days, cleansed from the Earth just as La Russophobe and Lucas say they are going to cleanse me of my sins. I’m off to London, one of the key fortresses of Western democracy, to meet her, Ed and Boris. Should be fun.

  1. Just wanted to say HI. I found your blog a few days ago on Technorati and have been reading it over the past few days.

  2. I am deeply moved and I too have changed like you. Thanks to aluminum foil (http://zapatopi.net/afdb/) I no longer receive the psychotronic control rays emitted by the Kremlin and now understand that Putin is indeed the Dread Pirate Roberts of our time.

  3. Posted too late. In some parts of the world it’s already THE NEXT DAY.

  4. Fedia, you are a fullbore psychopath. It is never too late to renounce neo-Soviet lies and hypocrisy, you fascist freak. With friends like these Russia needs no enemies.

    Patrick, welcome back to the Light. We will seek absolution together.

  5. Hah, I am assuming this is an April Fools joke 🙂

  6. Dear Comrade (sorry, former Comrade I should have said)
    Absolution is found at the bottom of a Polish (note Polish. not Russian) vodka bottle.

  7. this is so creepy, it reminded me of that junked plot for the new Terminator Salvation movie where John Connor turns out to be a…terminator. You really had me there for a moment until I saw the humongous lady pic.

    I’m an April Fool! Steve J

    This latest is completely out of the way. Please, cancel the last check for $100,000 payable to Anatoly. Please, publish on all controlled blogspots a public warning to all traitors. Remind them that there are only two ways out of the program – via re-debuilding of the country or in a non-virtual funeral hearth. Anatoly’s case must be made an example.


  9. April Fool?

    What follows can fit the mentioned “fullbore psychopath” category. It’s neverthless said because of what might (at least in some circles) not be fully understood.

    Given the multitude of April Fool’s Day like activity and increased waryness out there, the readers at large familiar with your views are like the batter knowing in advance (via the third base coach stealing the catcher’s signal) of what kind of pitch will be thrown.

    As for the Soviet bit, I recall McCain not stressing Soviet, but “Russian” during his presidential campaign gibberish. At one point, he specified on the claim of present day Russia seeking to recreate the “Russian” as opposed to “Soviet Empire” – and was clear enough in distinguishing between the two. Never mind that Putin has spoken out against any replication of either the USSR or Russian Empire.

    As for the history of the two, well, let’s look at Russia’s current flag and coat of arms and a recent poll indicating that most Russians don’t want to fully bring back Soviet symbols; while also not seeking to ban them. Note how non-Russians like Niall Ferguson appreciably gloat at certain aspects of their country’s imperial past.

    It’s good to take things lightly without losing out on the bigger picture of what’s more loathed. This has included so-called Russophobes favoribly quoting some views from Marx – as part of their Russia bashing invective.

    Regarding the Polish reference at this thread, Poland’s FM Radek Sikorski is at it again. He says that Russia can join NATO and that this can help serve to better democratize that country. He must be a big GUAM fan. Said organization consisting of Azerbaijan and Moldova, as well as the fizzled (in popularity) “democratic” governments of Georgia and Ukraine. GUAM’s stated intent is to promote political and economic development. What Sikorski of course desires is a Russia that sees things his way. Mind you, that he doesn’t see this as having an imperial attitude.

  11. So does this mean there is now an opening for a high paid propaganda master working for a Kremlin web brigade dedicated to suppressing democratic sentiments, rehabilitating Stalinism and getting the West to drop its guard to the rise of neo-Soviet dictatorship in Russia? In these difficult economic times, one needs all the leads one can get, ya know. Do they have an online application process like Obama’s administration, or is this one of those things where it’s all about networking networking networking? I’m not going to have to stand in one of those lines that wrap around a city block am I? Tips? Any chance I could use you as a reference?

    Best of luck on your new endeavor. Oh, BTW, Lucas has announced a boycott of French products, so if you have any champagne in the fridge, you should rid yourself of it immediately. I’ll be happy to help you with that too, in exchange for a letter of recommendation.

  12. OK time to wise up again folks 🙂

  13. For sure and with the understanding that it’s okay to periodically lighten things up a bit.

    The views of L**** and L* can be effectively opposed without having to specifically make mention of them.

    I don’t see them propping some other venues besides this one. Put mildy: at times, what they go after and how they choose to go about it leaves something to be desired (this is much more true of the latter mentioned as opposed to the former).

    Take it to ’em within reason. Case in point, RFE/RL with its overall slant. That said, RFE/RL is pretty good when it comes to posting dissenting comments below articles.

  14. It takes a lot of courage to recognize your mistakes publicly and reverse course, in fact it’s a very rare thing. How painful the transition into the light is, welcome!

    Please accept this small gift.
