Woke Capital Making Inroads into Russia

Yandex.Taxi is Russia’s Uber. According to its terms of service, a driver can refuse a passenger a ride for any reason; he or she is deducted a fine and that’s the end of the matter.

But, like many laws and regulations, this apparently no longer applies to Black passengers.

Drivers are obligated to give them a ride, as one unfortunate driver from the provincial Russian city of Bryansk found out earlier this month when one Roy Obonga, a student from the Congo – whose primary interests in Russia would appear to be far removed from academic matters, at least judging by his VK profile (list of his subscriptions right) – posted a short video of a truly traumatizing microaggression:

Driver: I don’t like his state, I am not taking him. [says this talking on a cell phone to someone else; perhaps Yandex support?]
Obonga: Just like that? Why you not want to give me ride, because I am coronavirus, yes?
Driver: Yes.
Obonga: So I am coronavirus?
Driver: You have nothing to do with it, it’s my choice… If I don’t like someone, I don’t give them a ride.
Obonga: So you don’t like me? You are racist, yes?
Driver: Of course, yes.
Obonga: You are racist, yes?
Driver: Yes

The video only shows the tail end of the exchange, so we don’t even know what series of events or provocations led up to it – though it is worth noting that there are hints of intoxication in Obonga’s speech. Moreover, the driver is clearly only agreeing with Obonga’s “coronavirus” and “racist” accusations out of pure annoyance in an apparently successful bid to make him get out out his car ASAP. Now obviously, “agreeing” with a racially aggrieved minority that you are a racist and doing it on camera is an extremely bad idea, and no White driver in the West working for Uber or Lyft would make such a rookie mistake. But it’s no surprise that ordinary vatniks from the Russian provinces haven’t yet gotten the message on how to properly cover your ass in our brave new world.

Obonga reported the incident to both Yandex.Taxi and to the the legions of GloboHomo-aligned online outlets based in Russia, who are always very happy to promote anything that demonizes ordinary, working-class Russians. After a warning from Yandex.Taxi to the driver in the wake of Obonga’s direct complaint, it was upgraded into an outright ban after the story was publicized by TJournal. The tech giant haughtily announced that they have no place for “impudence and racism” on Twitter. There is no indication that the driver was even consulted for his side of the story.

This provoked an angry reaction from Russian nationalists and shitposters on VKRussian Twitter, and 4chan equivalent dvach in the form of the #яндекскуколд (Yandex.Cuckold) hashtag.

This resulted in some nice memes and even an endorsement from Oleg Kashin (a liberal journalist who has fallen out with former crowd by not hating Russians enough). Meduza wrote an article, as a Khodorkovsky/Western-funded outlet negative in tone, of course, but with links to a representative sample of anti-Yandex complaints.

However, as the Russian saying goes, a fisherman sees another fisherman from afar. The #яндекскуколд hashtag was quickly suppressed, and both Google and Apple deleted/discounted most or all of the resulting spate of one star ratings. Twitter banned many of the accounts that had promoted #яндекскуколд, and I allow that even my own temporary shadowbanning may have arisen as a result of that. BBC Russian wrote an article asking why Blacks have it so bad in Russia and why nobody is protesting it. A petition demanding Yandex rehire its fired driver posted to Change.org was also deleted, in an object lesson in precisely what kinds of civil rights issues Western tech companies are interested in supporting in Russia (does not appear to include protecting honest Russian workers from public defamation and infringements on their labor rights).

Meanwhile, so far as I can tell, Roy Obonga – has faced no consequences for doxing the driver, or liking a reply to his Instagram post from another Black, Joel Canavaro, threatening to burn his taxi.

Now obviously, Russia is at a much less advanced stage of SJWism than the West. Current social opinion is a strong barrier to its spread, and in a few cases, it is underpinned by law (e.g. the ban on propaganda of homosexuality to minors).

Most corporate giants are still profits-oriented, hence, like Bethesda, they avoid unfurling the rainbow flag in Russia, and leave that to the US Embassy instead.

Right now, its vectors of spread are limited to just a few socio-economic groups:

(1) Loud and sizable contingent, though a decided minority, of students at elite universities. For most of them, this will be a passing youth fad, with the few true believers wasting away on Soros/US State Department grants in obscurity.

Unless, that is, these views are subsequently reinforced and validated in the media and corporate world.

(2) Elements of the media-entertainment complex. Though camp and gay everywhere, which is OK (sort of expected, anyway), it is surprising to see so many Black performers on TV in the runup to the New Year.

(3) Woke Capital directly from the West, e.g. in an amusing recent development, German automaker Audi broke off an advertising contract with the liberal bimbo Ksenia Sobchak for making some very mildly critical comments about #BLM (“wondering why the protests “were ending with the looting of the Louis Vuitton store” in downtown Los Angeles“).

(4) “Democratic journalists” who serve as GloboHomo’s agents within Russia, importing/propagandizing all the latest memeplexes from #MeToo to #BLM, which extends into audacious attempts to colonize the Russian language (e.g. campaign to taboo the usage of negr/негр, which is our traditional word for Blacks, as in the Latin countries; the hilary of “Nigaz” aside, a joint venture in Nigeria that was set up by Gazprom boomers, I have been told that “negr” is becoming moderately taboo at younger/hipper media establishments including pro-regime ones).

(5) Most disturbingly is GloboHomo infiltration of Russia’s own corporate sector, especially the tech giants. While Woke Capital from abroad can in theory be filtered or banned entirely as appropriate, that won’t be so easy if it is allowed to establish beachheads within Russia itself – as has evidently happened, at least to some extent, in Yandex’s case. Moreover, in this sense, the tendency of many Russian corporate giants to headquarter abroad opens up not just a geopolitical and economic vulnerability, but a cultural one as well (Yandex itself is registered in the Netherlands).

All of this is in its incipient stages, more hilarious to observe than anything else. For instance, one recent example might involve Tanuki, a Russian sushi chain with what seems to be an ideologically fissured social media team. Its Twitter team effectively mocked #BLM by posting #AllMakiRolesMatter a few weeks ago, while the Instagram team has just gone full woke, rainbowfying its Instagram logos and telling irate followers to effectively go screw themselves. One possibility could have been that their PR team were just racist liberals (anti-BLM, pro-Homo), which is not an unusual combination in Russia (after all, that pretty much describes Mikhail Svetov’s libertarians and the Sputnik & Pogrom people). But probably not, since according to at least some reports, the people who had posted the #AllMakeRolesMatter Tweet had been fired and the new Homo posters are their replacements.

But all of this is still very much the exception rather than the rule. Even so, as we saw with the coronavirus (which came to Russia via Italy, not China), this is no guarantee that Western toxicity will acquire self-sustaining dynamics and become endemic.

That is because the trends driving GloboHomo in Russia are structural and cannot be divorced from Russia’s broader economic and informational integration into the European-American space.

This recent BNE article by Ben Aris, which talks about Russian companies adopting ESG (environmental, social, governance) performance metrics in a bid to appeal to foreign investors inadvertently makes the point.

Raby goes on to point out that until recently it was seen a breach of their fiduciary duty for asset managers to consider non-financial criteria like ESG when assessing an investment decision. The change to start taking ESG criteria into account is a fairly recent development.

“Making investment decisions that take the environmental impact into account so far has been an exclusion approach. We don’t invest in fossil fuels. We don’t invest in extractive industries. And there has been a big debate about nuclear power,” says Raby. “The social part has been a box-ticking exercise. Do they have a worker safety policy? Do they have women on the board?

That will have to change now, as companies need to embrace the whole concept of ESG and build it into the heart of their businesses.

“These days ESG has gone from a nice-to-have to a must-have thing. If you don’t want to lose existing investors and want to attract new ones then this is already a must,” says Oleg Goshchansky, chairman and managing partner of KPMG in Russia and the CIS

And ESG could turn out to be a boon for Russian companies as it is one of the few ways they have to undo the “Russian discount” on their market capitalisation valuations.

Now in all fairness there is nothing wrong with ESG in its reasonable interpretation – environmental stewardship, social responsibility, etc. are all good things, though really the focus should be on government regulation as opposed to corporate signaling on those matters.

But even in these early, inchoate stages we already see atomophobia (“big debate about nuclear power”), despite it being one of the not that frequent outstanding success stories of Russian industry, and the incongruency of this coupled with concerns over climate change (which will be good for Russia anyway). We see questions about women on the board. How long before those people are “asking question” why Russian companies have no LGBT members. Or Black members? (At least there won’t be questions as to why no Asians, as they’re honorary whites for as the woke are concerned).

These are not racist concerns. Russians were the single greatest POC victims of Western supremacism, we were repeatedly decimated as a people when we were colonized by (foreign) Marxist ideas that were largely imposed on us by non-Russians.

And now the descendants of those very same people want to colonize us all over again with GloboHomo and Infinity Blacks, ending Russia as a viable nation-state by the end of the century.

Although a complete break with the West and neo-Sakoku/Iron Curtain reimposition is unviable, there should certainly be a continuation and reinvigoration of efforts to re-attain economic sovereignty, so that companies serving the Russian market serve the interests of Bryansk vatniks instead of rootless financiers of ambiguous ethnic identity flitting between Moscow and London. There ought to be zero tolerance for GloboHomo/BLM propaganda and signaling, punished by flash mobs from the bottom and loss of state contracts from the top. Cultural exchanges need to be tapered down to a minimum, with interaction mainly limited to short-term tourism, simple trade, and scientific cooperation.

    I saw recently that China was planning to massively expand the number of scholarships to encourage African students.

    Is whatever soft power they think they will gain worth having these people around?

  3. Swarthy Greek says

    What did i just say in the thread regarding the constitutional amendments? The next generation of “New Russians” has been thoroughly indoctrinated by the western capitalists and will have no qualms about spreading globo-homo in Russia.

  4. Negroes and taxis is ancient problem in the US but it has dissipated of late probably because of Uber and Lyft drivers being classified as independent contractors one cannot sue and get a settlement from. At least lawyers don’t seem to find it worth pursuing.

    I agree though that large Russian companies will be under great pressure to conform to SJW/ESG group think if they want to do business in the West. Probably more so since, being Russian they are already suspect.

    This s a good observation I hadn’t noticed before. I seem to recall litigation in the US as recently as the turn of the century to the effect that putting various woke-isms ahead of profits was breach of fiduciary duty and legitimate cause of action against directors. Now it seems to have turned 180 degrees although no law has changed.

    Shows how powerful cultural revolution is: you can get a complete reversal and you don’t even need legislation.


    P.S. True to stereotype, that Congolese seems to be a definite “ass man”.

  6. This taxi driver violated the norms that exist in Russia regardless of the West. Employees of companies should not refuse customers with the words ” get Out of here, I’m a racist, I don’t like the place where you came from..”. This (that there should be no such statements) is a long-standing norm. If this taxi driver refused someone on the grounds that “you look like a Jew, and I am anti-Semitic”, “you are a Tatar, and I hate Tatars”, etc. he would have big problems. and this is not due to Western influence

  7. Daniel Chieh says

    Aren’t there apts that refuse leases to Caucasians?

  8. It was a strategically edited video that only showed the tail end of their argument, and it’s patently clear the driver was trying to fob the African off. (“You win, I don’t care to argue, now plz GTFO.”)

  9. There was even a taxi service that offered a “Slavic drivers only” option until 2014, when there was an outcry by multinationalist activists.

    Where did you see it? Probably has no credibility.

  12. Belarusian Dude says

    Not my experience. I’ve in my younger years seen people refused all kinds of services for belonging to one or another group of slurs

  13. Russia is lucky that globohomo is eating it self alive. I would say all of this is a self correcting problem but a problem we may have to live with all of our life.

    I moved away from the city for this reason. Anyone who has two brain cells to put together should be looking into doing the same.

  14. Maybe the problem with the altright is that it undervalues verbal IQ and EQ relative to math IQ? Maybe because a large part of them are made up of people on the spectrum, or near the spectrum, so they tend to devalue it, because it does not play to their strengths? But then verbal IQ is how you sell your ideas, and is how you solve the is-ougth problem, since results only tell you what is it, not what you should do, or which personal values and morality play a large part, or convincing people to follow your personal values and morality over theirs, which plays to verbal IQ strengths.

    For all the talk of “based russians who hate women and minorities”, this will stick, keep going and eventually metastasize into typical american AWFL cargo cultism.
    All the hopes the RW puts on some organic populist immunity will go out together with the bad hormones, and the RF will complete its transition into a late american colony.
    The only upside is that they’ll leave muh statues alone.

    How Russia can defeat “Woke culture” at home and solve almost every domestic problem Ancient Roman style

    To defeat Wokeness and defeat Globohomo – the solution is simple – reject Human Rights and enshrine this rejection in law. The concept of Human Rights is the basis for American Soft Power, the basis for “woke culture” and what is destroying America from within. To reject the concept of “Human Rights” is to unapologetically assert national soverignity and a nations self determination. There can be no human rights – only the interest of the State, the collective and the individual of Russian descent who forms the State.

    To solve almost every domestic problem Ancient Roman stlye

    Do what the Romans did with the Senate – ban any duma official from “working” and holding wealth amongst family and friends. Make the FSB watch them and jail anyone who has any wealth and drives any car not Russian or uses any material consumable not made in Russia (or that has a Russian equivalent). Any suspicion of corruption will result in a “seizure” of ALL assets of the individual (house, car, clothing, food, children, etc) by the State – unless the state official surrenders his own life by suicide. Of course State officials (unless they are diplomats) would not be able escape aborad because their passports would be seized upon taking any political office.

    Next – any Duma official needs to be banned from leaving the country (even on vacation), and their family and friends shall also not be allowed outside the country.

    Finally – just as the American Foinding Fathers, seperated Church and State – the Russian Constitution shall seperate Wealth (and the Merchant Class) from State by banning any landowner, wealth holder, etc from the state apparatus.

    How would this be done? Anybody who was previously a representative of the Merchant Class must be forced to sell their company and assets to the State (or State apparatus) and the profits would then go to a trust fund that cannot be accessed (by Law) until the person retires from politics.

    This will ensure that only patriots who care nothing for wealth will govern the country, this would keep out any who wish to engage in corruption.

  17. Autists Anonymous Rehab Camp Fugitive says

    The problem with the dissident right is a lack of religiosity in convictions. If Yandex tweeted out “fuck niggers”, there would be protests, boycotts, doxxing, downright terrorism if needed. The numbers don’t matter, the zealots believe they’re surrounded by intersectional anti-racists, and if they aren’t, it’s just because the masses are brainwashed and historical progress will eventually justify all of their actions.
    In comparison, the right wing will always feel like they’re doing something mean, even the #yandexcuckold thing feels like a play at being a schoolboy scribbling dirty words on the class blackboard.

  18. It was a strategically edited video that only showed the tail end of their argument, and it’s patently clear the driver was trying to fob the African off. (“You win, I don’t care to argue, now plz GTFO.”

    )

    Formulate the position of the “Russian nationalists”.
    There are two different options:
    1) The taxi driver is a victim of slander, and he kicked the African out of the taxi not because” I don’t like your face”, but for other reasons.

    2)The second option: taxi drivers in the service of large companies, shop assistants, clerks, etc. have the full right to refuse to work with clients whose faces they do not like. For example, if tomorrow the store clerk says to me – “get out, you look like a nerd, I hate fucking nerds” then it will be fair and my complaints to the company will be a violation of the rights of the working class.

    You will decide which option you support

  20. Autists Anonymous Rehab Camp Fugitive says

    Yeah or maybe it should declare itself a national socialist worker state and follow Juche. Maybe restore the tzardom and divide the land into guberniyas. Maybe finally declare that it is an RNG focused on the interests of the Russian people.
    It’s cute to daydream of Europa Universalis style scenarios where some weird political ideology fixes the cultural weltschannung, gets rid of all the bad things while raising military stats.
    Most people who do are either teenagers or freak subcultures with a movement of <50 people on their VK page that organize meetups of <10 people to dress up in cosplay regalia, march with some very elaborate custom flag, give a speech, then go home knowing that the freemason reptilians have been scared off for at least another decade.

  21. I don’t speak for “Russian nationalists”, but Yandex.Taxi contract with the driver explicitly allows for (2) – can have the right to refuse service to anyone, though you have to pay a fine, just like passengers who change their plans. However, in practice, (1) applies in this situation as well.

  22. NazbolFren says

    If the American Founding Fathers stated a desire to seperate Church and State back during the founding of America – they would have been laughed out of the room by any self respecting European country – they did it anyway and succeeded.

    In fact the problem of Wealth interfering in State has been a problem recognized as far back as the ancient Greeks – many ancient States tried to find ways to limit the infleunce of the Wealthy classes on the functions of the State – some – like Sparta, used iron rods as currency so it would be impossible to accumulate and any deal would have to be done in public (because it is impossible to hide large iron rods), whereas the Roman Republic tried to prevent the Senators from working, whereas still others had a mythology surrounding the “Warrior Class” and gave merchants low social status. Still others like the USSR, tried to eliminate the merchant class entirely so it did not have access to rule, but didnt take into account the natural division of people based on talent.

    The problem can be solved as I have suggested, similar to how the American Fathers solved the problems of Church and State.

    Perhaps I am wrong and missing something fundamental – but then I want to know

  23. Passer by says

    Russia needs to expand trade and mutual investment with China and Eurasia in general instead of the West. These requirements do not come from China or Eurasia.

    This is the way to block this.

    The West is gone.

    I said many times the way to stop this is to integrate the country in Eurasia. It is this super region of the world that is and will be more illiberal due to structural reasons that will not change for at least the next several hundred years – that is – bigger civilisational differences and interstate competition, possibly biological differences causing lack of liberalism too.

  24. Yandex.Taxi contract with the driver explicitly allows for (2) – can have the right to refuse service to anyone

    If this is true, then Yandex’s critics are right

  25. Since somebody mentioned the Romans, the Romans emphasized oratorical skills most of all, which is heavily weighted towards verbal IQ and EQ, oratory is basically marketing your ideas to an audience, so maybe the altright should brush up on its oratory?

  26. Autists Anonymous Rehab Camp Fugitive says

    What I’m getting at is that you’re larping and acting as if Russians (who? The People? The government? Putin?) will gather together and decide that it is time to implement some wacky political system. And not just any wacky political system, but one invented by a random internet shitposter named “nazbol fren”.
    You’re asking me to debate the features of your ancient rome roleplay, when I’m questioning its feasibility in literally ever other aspect.
    Of course it sounds fantastic to have a military noble aristocracy running a Romanussian empire. So does an Immortal Emperor on a golden throne. Or a bundle of warlords listening to the wise teachings of the ancestors channeled through shamans.
    It’s all roleplay, you’re not a 17th century colonial revolutionary with political support back in the old continent.

  27. Putin has done a pretty good job pushing Russia up the Ease of Doing Business ranks (Russia is now #28, above Japan). To that end, Russian corporates should be incentivized to headquarter in Russia rather than Netherlands/Cyprus. Maybe give them tax breaks or preferential government contracts? It is foolish to locate major assets outside of Russia because upcoming US sanctions (US will invent reasons) will freeze them anyway.

    As for the future fate of GloboHomo, as least in the US, liberal arts enrollment in colleges is crashing down. It is becoming unaffordable anyway. Once current generation of bitter white women works through the HR departments, it should hopefully get better. They will eat each other as they try to climb career ladder and find the meaning of life in corporate wage slavery.

    Between current insanity subsiding due to shortage of shock troops, and global trade declining due to virus pandemic/economic depression/WW3 preparations, i expect Russia to be mostly spared the GloboHomo infiltration. As the West loses full spectrum dominance, it will turn increasingly hostile to Russia and China, and ironically, it will the more pro-Western liberal locals who will feel the most pain (see Sobchak and Audi). It will be difficult to promote GloboHomo when your accounts are frozen by US Treasury.

  28. Autists Anonymous Rehab Camp Fugitive says

    Let me guess, Aleksandr Nevsky?
    There isn’t some ancient aryan “culture of welcomingness” that sets Russians apart from other cultures in this aspect, and especially no “culture of welcomingness” to whiny shouting obonga here. It’s a soviet myth. Also believed by pseudo-historical wewuzists.
    All civilizations have defined themselves by telling others to fuck off, and not only “those who came with the sword”.

    Also, wearing glasses is not a choice, being black is.

  29. NazbolFren says

    Obviously the government would need to implement this.

    And you have not said at all why its wacky. What is wrong with seperating the merchant class from the state apparatus when this literally parallels history (even recent history)?

    Also, why cant a randon internet user invent a political system – isnt this how the French Revolution started (ie random people invented new ways of doing things)?

    I never mentioned a noble aristocracy or a Romanussian Empire (whatever that is) or an Immortal Emperor – i dunno where ur getting this from, you sound like the LARPER

    All I suggested was to ban Duma officials from having private wealth and keaving the country on vacation so that it filters out those who enter the government for easy wealth acquisition and because it would reduce foreign meddling as well as prevent large outflow pf state resources to foreign banks. It seems like you didnt understand what I was suggesting – so how could you question it? I believe this is necessary for Russia, as most Russian problems stem from corruption.

  30. EldnahYm says

    I’m not sure EQ is measuring anything real. But I agree with you about verbal IQ.

  33. Hyperborean says

    still others had a mythology surrounding the “Warrior Class” and gave merchants low social status.

    Look up the failure of this policy in Tokugawa-era Japan.

    Still others like the USSR, tried to eliminate the merchant class entirely so it did not have access to rule, but didnt take into account the natural division of people based on talent.

    Based on the development of the Nomenklatura, not a positive example.

    Do what the Romans did with the Senate – ban any duma official from “working” and holding wealth amongst family and friends. Make the FSB watch them and jail anyone who has any wealth and drives any car not Russian or uses any material consumable not made in Russia (or that has a Russian equivalent). Any suspicion of corruption will result in a “seizure” of ALL assets of the individual (house, car, clothing, food, children, etc) by the State – unless the state official surrenders his own life by suicide. Of course State officials (unless they are diplomats) would not be able escape aborad because their passports would be seized upon taking any political office.

    Question – just what standard of living would be acceptable to you?

  34. NazbolFren says

    Yes of course those systems failed (feudalistic Japan and USSR nomenklatura) but it indicated that the leaders of the time recognized the need for these systems, that were initially highly effective but got diluted and betrayed over time.

    This indicates a need for well thought out checks and balances that would allow this system to persist.

    Quality of life for whom? If you mean for the members of the political class, then I envision a restriction of QoL similar to the middle class. This would mean that politics is sufficiently attractive for bright minds and would discourage those from ambitions of getting rich. However, by “restriction to middle class” i mean in terms of material wealth, but they would not be able to travel/vacation outside the country, would not be able to use products (where domestic equivalents exist) not of domestic make and would be under constant public and silovik scrutiny for compliance.

    I was talking about the soviet movie with the famous tagline.
    Should be pretty obvious from the context that I was referring to the movie and not the novgorodian prince, especially since I quoted part of the movie’s motto ad verbatim. You’re playing dumb.

    Have the government implement your system and then we can talk.

  37. Philip Owen says

    The gravity model is against you. The future for Russia after the hydrocarbon bust is to supply the EU with raw materials and low added value manufactures that Ukrainians earn too much to consider. The EU will block Russian food and especially processed food imports. For those Russia needs Turkey, Iran, Egypt and the UK. All four don’t come together.

  38. Yandex is not promoting BLM, my guess is that the company is shocked by the eruption of violence in the West, coordinated by various Bolshevik groups and mostly supported by the press (“justified protests”), and it saw how businesses were made to toe the line or face consequences (of course the majority of big businesses jumped on the bandwagon by their own accord). Yandex wants to keep the situation calm and not attract Western attention.

    It’s a mania, and it’s hard to deal with maniacs, especially when the maniacs have all the powers that matter on their side, e.g. don’t expect monument vandals, assault perpetrators, or arsonists to face criminal charges. In the very rare occasions that it happens, there’s a deep fund set up especially for the Bolsheviks and an army of lawyers ready to tap it.

    But I agree with Karlin that Russia must regulate businesses so that vatniks are not fired. Businesses can create norms, which other businesses may eventually adopt, and these norms can be leftist, and they trickle down on the population, who in time start paying lip service to them out of fear or simply because they absorb what they see. This affects culture. But what affects culture to an even greater extent is the law. There was a leaked powerful meeting by organized Jewry weeks ago, where they deliberated on the BDS movement and especially on how to cull the right/nationalist presence in the internet and elsewhere. One of the Jews present said something along the line that the law molds culture, and he’s right.

    The law is supreme, but if the law lets it happen, the mass media/entertainment industry, high ed environment, and big businesses, can also shape culture. The US is in the state that it’s in because all the subversive movements were allowed to prosper – and get this – they eventually came to prominence and started enacting laws to shape the mindset and behavior of the rest of the population that were apathetic to their ideologies. They saw the power of the law, and were not afraid to yield it.

    Off-topic: Mel Gibson’s father passed way in May at the age of 101, the NYT obituary headline? “Hutton Gibson, Extremist and Father of Mel Gibson, Dies at 101”. Yep, literal violent Bolsheviks erasing white history are justified protests, and an infirm old man who had mild criticism of organized Jewry and the new Vatican is an extremist, because Jews are always blameless victims.

  39. SIMP simp says

    Russia will eventually become as progressive for 3 main reasons:
    -russia doesn’t have a strong pop culture. Even in brezhnev times the Eastern bloc middle class was listening to western music and was watching Hollywood movies. This allows for american ideas to become more real than local traditions and you end up with locals who LARP as americans; I’ve seen romanians who think that we have juries because they see them on tv all the time. Spoiler alert: we don’t have juries.
    -the west is rich so western culture is high status and adopted by all the ambitious people around the world; Girardian aping of desires.
    -russia is not building an ideological alternative. Putin is content to run things but ideas matter too. If no one is aggressively demystifying progressivism it will become the de facto public ideology. This is happening in Romania. The yuppies and the tech bros are all budding SJWs and rabid atheists, even if they still hate gypsies and are economically right wing because they hate taxes. Add to that aggressive EU progressivism and is clear that this is our future. These days a law was passed regarding compulsory sex ed in schools, despite opposition from the romanian orthodox church. It’s obvious that sex ed will be used to normalize homosexuality and other paraphilias as per western mores.
    These 3 factors will probably lead to the spread of progressivism even in China because their pop culture is garbage, they love western brands and I doubt anyone cares about Xi Jinping Thought.

    OT: there was another big purge on Reddit.

    As for Nazbol fren retardation how about just eliminating status differences between common and elite. Ie how Khalsa does it, if you embarrass me well you also wear Turban you doing self own

    Slow clap.

  43. Why? Why shouldn’t it be up to the cab driver to decide who he serves? He isn’t a clerk at a grocery store or anything like that, he is driving people around (presumably) in his own car. It should be up to him whom he drives.

  44. Passer by says

    Incorrect. Most russian trade is already with non-western countries and the EU is on a long term decline, to be less than 10 % of the global economy by 2100, with Asia becoming more than 52 % of the global economy by 2050.

  45. China was conquered in 1949 or even earlier.

  46. Passer by says

    -the west is rich so western culture is high status

    Problem with that is that the West is on a long term decline, that is – it will matter less and less.

    1. Europe is to drop to all time low of 10 % of global gdp by the end of the century and so is the US – again about 10 % (and continuing to decline after that too).
    2. Then there is the debt issue. Huge debt levels in several years in Europe (above 100 % for UK, around 120% in France, Spain, Belgium, above 160 % for Italy, 200% in Greece).

    US public debt is to reach all time high of 220 % by 2050 with budget deficits of 14 % (therefore hyperniflation).

    Even under current law (before coronacrisis estimates, which means they are very conservative estimates), significant spending decreases are coming for the US, where military spending will be cut from 3,2 % of GDP to 2,5 %, nondefense discretionary spending is to drop to all time low from 3,2 % of GDP to 1,8 % of GDP.

    Third – the demographic issue – by 2100 africans will be 37 % of the world population and muslims 35 %.

    Therefore, we are entering a post western world, with big changes coming, and all should prepare for that accordingly.

    Even US liberals are aware of that.

  48. Why not copy Serbian/Serb Montenegrin memers?(all ultranationalists, since globohomo can’t meme)

    It’s basically what happens when you take a 4chan raid and cross it with twitter SJW lynch mob tactics for their own nationalistic, and extremely based purposes, and make it constant and permanent. An eternal raid! Their power level is so high they are mentioned by politicians in the fucking parliament. The closest thing to this in the West would be the groypers, but their approach is different.

    Facebook, instagram and twitter are basically perfect, because you can make nearly infinite accounts. When one is taken down, the backup jumps into place, and the others just mass advertise it.

    Russia could have thousands of these. Very decentralized. Absolutely uncontrollable.

    Heck, one guy managed to get a bunch of kids to get every single municipial ig page of the ruling party (globohomo masking as normiecon) taken down via mass reporting, kek

  49. NazbolFren says

    You cant eliminate status difference without eliminating the financial incentive in this case.

    Get rid of financial incentive (ie ability or motivation to steal) and those who go into politics to steal weed themselves out.

  50. The EU dictating the future of Russia…now that’s really funny.

  51. Icy Blast says

    If the Chinese allow entry to more denizens of the dark continent, they will see a sharp upward spike in the numbers of rapes of Chinese women. Chinese men may respond more severely than simply by stuffing the offender into a washing machine. Certainly they will not be paralyzed by fear like white American men.

  52. Jatt Arya says

    So basically you want a system with clever thieves while we want one where the thief has an incentive to share||

  53. Maybe Chinese women want footlongs instead of 4 inchers?

  54. Hartnell says

    It is interesting that it is mainly white men on motorcycles discussing this ‘frustrating’ fact about China. I’m not sure what it is about white people but there does seem to be something inherently liberal about them. That is everything must be open and not closed at all.

    I do wonder if it goes back to the history of the Indo-Europeans traveling everywhere by horse back and this mentality has somehow stuck in the mainstream population genetics. That is the desire for travel and expansion into foreign realms…

  55. This is not good. Even at this early stage the battle may be lost. The insidiousness of this disease cannot be overstated.

  56. Hartnell says

    Yeah even though I have mixed feelings by what is going on in Russia, it does make you wonder if eventually it is going to become a lost cause there. It’ll come later of course but once the wealth levels go up, the liberalism will surely follow.

  57. The Criminals will all be dead.

  58. NazBolFren says

    Are you stupid? And did you not read anything I wrote?

    I want a system that eliminated the incentive to thieve, that self-selects for those who do not thieve because the restrictions applied to their lifestyle become not worth entering politics for, unless they are actually interested in making a better state and don’t care much for possessions.

  59. russo-realist says

    It’s hilarious, how easy UNZ audience can be fooled by such authors. Russia does not need wokism, it is already has it in a form of multinational ideology of CPSU member Putin and his billionaire friends.

    Russian “blacks” are from the North Caucasian mountains. I wonder, how many hours this driver would live peacefully if he’d denied service to Chechen? Not many… North Caucasian Muslims are the protected class in Russia. Slavic population has significantly less rights and freedoms than blacks in some better parts of Africa…

    All this conservative angle of Putin is pure fabrication. The member of CPSU and KGB will fight Marxism, yeah, right. The third of all families in Russia is single mother. The conservative values of the Russians are alcoholism and wife beatings. They are kneeling before Ramzan Kadyrov. They are investing trillions of rubles in Northern Caucasus republics which get siphoned into the offshore accounts of the local kleptocrats and giant super mosques. The closest friends of Putin are two Jewish billionaires Vekselberg and Rottenberg, both are classic cronies.

    Of course, Putin wants to preserve his “eternal” power so he fights any organization that could possibly challenge “his Excellency”. The nationalists were the first who got utterly destroyed and coopted, BTW. He keeps controlled opposition in a form of Navalny etc., but they are atomized, banned from political participation and disorganized. This is a Schmittian fascist framework, friend and enemy distinction. Putin learnt it well.

    Russia is a terrible kleptocracy which got some loose change for the massive agitprop and image building. But I advise you to not get fooled by such grifters like the OP.

  60. So you believe that the LGBTQIAJHFVDFIO”;+$+2+$$($+$(($)2!;3(2($8#(3737838282728 community will be content and happy to continue to live under Jim Crow Russian version, or that that is a stable long term solution, and that they would not constantly agitate for more rights, like black people in the US? When the arc of history in the West in basically to expand full legal rights to more and more groups, like from white males with property, to all white males, to all white males and females, and eventually to people of all races?

  61. Boswald Bollocksworth says

    Negros simply shouldn’t be allowed in Russia. I can’t think of any upside for Russia. Must keep them away from our (well, your) pure Russian QTs.

  62. Again, me, proud son of Russia, offer advice to my people.

    Little addendum here.

    When I say Russia about’ size but not sharpness’, think of Whale Shark. It very big and powerful looking, but it no more than filter feeder. It eat plankton and not swallow anything bigger than tiny shrimp. So, even though it big, if it fight little barracuda, barracuda come out on top because barracuda got sharp teeth. It like giant sloth much bigger and stronger than saber-tooth tiger, but why saber-tooth win? It got big fangs. True, giant sloth got big claws but it too slow.
    Think of needle and big balloon with water. Needle or pin so little while water-filled balloon so big and heavy. But when they meet, which win? Pin win because it sharp. Jews sharp like pin, Russia more like big water balloon.
    Now, sharp thing cannot pierce hard thing. In game of paper-scissors-rock, scissors beat paper but not rock? Why? Scissors cut paper but not cut rock. If you not needle, you must be rock. Now, is Russia paper or rock? If Russia not gain sharpness, it must at least be hard, and nation become hard like rock when united and proud. Russia united and proud? Or too many Russians into vodka and slovenliness and too many Russian elites and hipsters got Polish Disease?

    Now, economics. Russia need family-centered economics. In West, consumer economy mostly about singles who live by ‘get paid, get laid’. Or among incels, rule go like ‘get paid, get played(by e-thots)’. That only good for short-term economics. Long-term, it disaster. True economy about family-centered activity. Not night clubs but family restaurant. Man and woman buying house and furniture. Husband and Wife having kids and buying food, clothes, toys, books, and stuff for kids. And later, sons and daughters using money to make life easier for parents and grandparents. Such serve as stuff of true economy. But West have Econo-Me. It all about me-me-me as young spender and hedonist than long-term investor in community, culture, and nation. Russia need Econo-We. Sure, everyone need some fun and stuff like videogames, but real economy about family, community, and continuity. Not just about me-me-me but about my family. Look at US as result of Econo-Me over so many decades. Men with ass-tattoos and daughters with green hair and nose piercing. Russia must ban tattoo and piercing. Tattoo body graffiti, and piercing self-mutilation. Only earring good piercing. Rest real dumb. There was time when people in West look at Hindus with nose-ring in National Geographic and say, “Boy, that looks stupid”, but now they got worse piercing.

    Only family-based economy good for future. Economy based on whims of youth real dumb and spread anti-value of decadence. Now, we get it. When people young, they like to sow wild oats and do some crazy stuff and have fun. Rite of passage and all that. But after while, grow up. Look how boomer generation think ‘forever young’ and mess up America. They now old people but still immature and pander to youth. Clinton-Bush II-Obama-Trump all such clowns.

    Also, Russians must value family because of what happened in WWII. So many men die and so many families lose fathers(and potential fathers) and sons. After all, among adults there 2/3 women and 1/3 men survive war. So many orphans grow up with father, or even without mother. Then, disaster capitalism of 1990s destroy so many family and so many children not have fathers who go astray. There no more beautiful scene in movie than in MIRROR by Tarkovsky where father come back and embrace two children. Films like SIBERIADE show effect of family and heritage destruction. Films like RETURN show problem of estrangement of father and son. So, family must be center of culture and economy.

    As for education, young people go astray because too much free time act fool. So, education need more intensity. Also, education need emphasize body and art and heart than just stuff with head. Why East Asia produce so many soulless geeks and grinds? Because education there all about rote-memory and mind-work. Mind need balance with heart and body.

    Now, what about propaganda? Hollywood rule world. Why Russia not able to counter effectively? Because Russians, while they know art and culture, not good at POPaganda. Yes, pop culture now propaganda or POPaganda, and Russia must develop good ‘popaganda’.
    Here, Russia must learn from West but with twist. Take popular idea from West but give it Russian twist. Take 007 movies. They very popular because James Bond cool guy. Then, Russia can create own 007, Bondsky. He good looking guy with dash and do exciting spy stuff. But with Russian twist. Bondsky not playboy. He family man. He meet beautiful women around world but not jump into sack all time to show his hairy chest. He treat other women with dignity and courtesy, and he go back to wife and family after mission. That way, he cool guy but also moral guy with trad values.
    What another thing very popular around world? Superhero stuff. Then, Russia should make superhero movie. What kind of hero? Suppose during WWII, Soviet Union have project to create super-soviet-man to destroy Nazis. And Nazi Germany also work on super-nazi-man. But war end before project finish. Soviet Union win and so it ended project of super-soviet-man. Also, Russia invade Germany and take super-nazi-man project. And both hidden away and forgotten. But suppose researcher find both in some warehouse or vault or something. He find half-completed super-heroes and blueprint. And he finish them. Of course, he not make them to serve communism or nazism but to serve Russia… like Soviet Anthem’s lyrics changed to sing about Russia instead.
    So there you have Russian super-hero. And who he fight? How about some Soros-like villain and Pussy Riot come up with evil villainess Pussy Bitch? She shoot ray beams from her pooter that turn Russian men ‘gay’ and become poofters. But of course, good guy Russian superhero defeat her and save her soul and she become Nice Russian wife and mother.
    And Russia, with vast size, perfect for movies like MIDNIGHT RUN. Such win as successful comedy around world. And Russia can make chick-flicks with heart, like MYSTIC PIZZA(though with less whory type than Julia Roberts character) as world needs decent and warm chick flicks as what come out of West nothing but sleaze like SEX AND CITY and GIRLS and ‘Twerking’.

    As for sports, Russia should say no to hit-head sports. Brains make life and meaning. Hitting brains means fewer brain cells. Russian lose enough brain cells with vodka and there no need to lose more by brain-bashing. And why Russia allow women to fight in MMA? Russian women pretty. Why they enter ring and trade blow with ugly women around world? Such not good. Stop madness. Let ugly women of West hit each other in face. Such new barbarianism.

    Finally, I, Anatoly, very sorry for spreading Covid scare. We Russians tough and manly. We not cower before some germ. I put photo of me carrying big sword but when I hear of Covid, I wear face diaper on my face and put on nursery beanie and baby bib and cry like baby. I watch CLIFFHANGER about tough men but act like Julianne Moore in SAFE. How I become so ‘woke’? So, now, I say hell with Covid. Protect nursing homes, but rest of people just go live life and give middle finger to Covid. Russian people overcome Mongols, Turks, French, and Germans. Russian people dive into ice water. So, Russian people cowering before Covid not very Russian.


    Russian Transcription:

    Опять же я, гордый сын России, советую своим людям.

    Небольшое дополнение здесь.

    Когда я говорю России о «размерах, но не резкости», вспоминаю о китовой акуле. Это очень большой и мощный вид, но это не более, чем фильтр подачи. Он ест планктон и не глотает ничего большего, чем крошечные креветки. Таким образом, несмотря на то, что оно большое, если оно борется с маленькой барракудой, барракуды выходят на первое место, потому что у барракуды есть острые зубы. Это как гигантский ленивец, намного больше и сильнее, чем тигр с саблезубым зубом, но почему победа с саблезубым зубом? У него большие клыки. Правда, гигантский ленивец получил большие когти, но он слишком медленный.
    Подумайте о игле и большом шарике с водой. Игла или булавка такая маленькая, а наполненный водой баллон такой большой и тяжелый. Но когда они встретятся, какая победа? Пин выиграл, потому что он острый. Евреи острые, как булавки, Россия больше похожа на большой водяной шар.
    Теперь острая вещь не может пробить тяжелую вещь. В игре бумага-ножницы-камень ножницы бьют бумагу, а не камень? Зачем? Ножницами резать бумагу, но не резать камень. Если ты не иголка, значит, ты скала. Теперь, Россия бумага или рок? Если Россия не наберет остроту, она должна быть, по крайней мере, трудной, и нация станет твердой, как скала, когда станет единой и гордой. Россия сплоченная и гордая? Или слишком много русских в водку и неряшливость и слишком много русских элит и хипстеров получили польскую болезнь?

    Теперь экономика. России нужна экономика, ориентированная на семью. На Западе потребительская экономика в основном состоит из одиночек, которые живут по принципу «плати, получай» Или среди инселлов правило звучит так: «плати, играй (по e-thots)». Это хорошо только для краткосрочной экономики. В долгосрочной перспективе это катастрофа. Истинная экономика о семейно-ориентированной деятельности. Не ночные клубы, а семейный ресторан. Мужчина и женщина покупают дом и мебель. Муж и жена рожают детей и покупают еду, одежду, игрушки, книги и прочее для детей. А потом сыновья и дочери используют деньги, чтобы облегчить жизнь родителям, бабушкам и дедушкам. Такие служат материалом настоящей экономики. Но у Запада есть Econo-Me. Это все о себе, как о молодой спонсоре и гедонисте, чем о долгосрочном инвесторе в общество, культуру и нацию. России нужна Эконо-Мы. Конечно, всем нужны развлечения и такие вещи, как видеоигры, но реальная экономия на семье, обществе и преемственности. Не только о себе, но и о моей семье. Посмотрите на США как результат Econo-Me на протяжении многих десятилетий. Мужчины с татуировками задниц и дочерьми с зелеными волосами и пирсингом в носу. Россия должна запретить татуировки и пирсинг. Татуировка граффити на теле, и пирсинг самоуничтожения. Только серьги хорошего пирсинга. Отдыхай тупой. Было время, когда люди на Западе смотрели на индусов с носовым кольцом в National Geographic и говорили: «Мальчик, это выглядит глупо», но теперь им стало хуже от пирсинга.

    Только семейная экономика хороша для будущего. Экономика, основанная на причудах молодежи, по-настоящему глупа и распространяет анти-ценность декаданса. Теперь мы получили это. Когда люди молодые, им нравится сеять дикий овес, делать сумасшедшие вещи и веселиться. Обряд и все такое. Но через некоторое время вырасту. Посмотрите, как поколение бумеров думает «вечно молодым» и портит Америку. Они теперь пожилые люди, но все еще незрелые и потворствуют молодежи. Клинтон-Буш II-Обама-Трамп всех таких клоунов.

    Также россияне должны ценить семью из-за того, что произошло во Второй мировой войне. Так много мужчин умирает, и так много семей теряют отцов (и потенциальных отцов) и сыновей. Ведь среди взрослых 2/3 женщин и 1/3 мужчин переживают войну. Так много сирот растут вместе с отцом или даже без матери. Затем, капиталистический кризис 1990-х годов разрушил так много семей и у многих детей нет отцов, которые сбиваются с пути. В фильме нет более красивой сцены, чем в «ЗЕРКАЛЕ» Тарковского, куда отец возвращается и обнимает двоих детей. Такие фильмы, как SIBERIADE, показывают эффект разрушения семьи и наследия. Такие фильмы, как «Возвращение», показывают проблему отчуждения отца и сына. Итак, семья должна быть центром культуры и экономики.

    Что касается образования, молодые люди сбиваются с пути, потому что слишком много свободного времени ведут себя глупо. Итак, образованию нужно больше интенсивности. Кроме того, образование должно акцентировать внимание на теле, искусстве и сердце, а не только на голове. Почему в Восточной Азии столько бездушных вундеркиндов и гриндов? Потому что образование там все о ритме памяти и умственном труде. Ум нуждается в балансе с сердцем и телом.

    А как насчет пропаганды? Голливуд правит миром. Почему Россия не в состоянии эффективно противодействовать? Потому что россияне, хотя и знают искусство и культуру, плохо разбираются в попаганде. Да, поп-культура сейчас пропаганда или попаганда, и в России должна развиваться хорошая «попаганда».
    Здесь Россия должна учиться у Запада, но с изюминкой. Возьмите популярную идею с Запада, но сделайте ее русской Возьми 007 фильмов. Они очень популярны, потому что Джеймс Бонд классный парень. Тогда Россия может создать собственный 007-бондский. Он хорошо выглядит парнем с чертой и делает захватывающие шпионские штучки. Но с русским поворотом. Бондский не плейбой. Он семьянин. Он встречает красивых женщин по всему миру, но не прыгает в мешок все время, чтобы показать свою волосатую грудь. Он относится к другим женщинам с достоинством и вежливостью, и после миссии он возвращается к жене и семье. Таким образом, он классный парень, но и моральный парень с традиционными ценностями.

    Что еще популярно во всем мире? Супергерой Тогда Россия должна снять фильм о супергероях. Что за герой? Предположим, что во время Второй мировой войны у Советского Союза был проект создания сверхсоветского человека для уничтожения нацистов. И нацистская Германия тоже работает на супернацистского мужчину. Но война заканчивается до завершения проекта. Советский Союз победил и так закончился проект сверхсоветского человека. Также Россия вторгается в Германию и возьмет на себя супернацистский проект. И оба спрятаны и забыты. Но предположим, что исследователь найдет и то, и другое на складе или в хранилище или что-то еще. Он находит наполовину завершенные супергерои и план. И он заканчивает их. Конечно, он не заставляет их служить коммунизму или нацизму, а служит России … как будто текст советского гимна изменился, чтобы петь о России вместо этого.
    Так что у вас есть русский супергерой. А с кем он воюет? Как насчет какого-то Соросоподобного злодея и Pussy Riot придумали злобную мерзость Pussy Bitch? Она стреляет лучами из своего нижнего белья, которые превращают русских мужчин в геев и превращаются в бандитов. Но, конечно, хороший парень русский супергерой победит ее и спасет ее душу, и она станет славной русской женой и матерью.
    А Россия, с огромными размерами, идеально подходит для таких фильмов, как «ПОЛУНОЧНЫЙ БЕГ». Такая победа как успешная комедия по всему миру. И Россия может делать цыпочки с сердцем, как MYSTIC PIZZA (хотя и с меньшим тиражом, чем персонаж Джулии Робертс), так как мир нуждается в приличных и тёплых цыпочках, как то, что выходит из Запада, только в грязных вещах, таких как SEX, CITY, GIRLS и ‘Twerking ».

    Что касается спорта, Россия должна сказать «нет» спорту с ударом головы. Мозги создают жизнь и смысл. Попадание в мозг означает меньше клеток мозга. Русские теряют достаточное количество клеток мозга с водкой, и нет нужды терять больше, избивая мозг. И почему Россия разрешает женщинам воевать в ММА? Русские женщины милы. Почему они выходят на ринг и обмениваются ударами с некрасивыми женщинами по всему миру? Такое не хорошо. Останови безумие. Пусть уродливые женщины Запада бьют друг друга по лицу. Такое новое варварство.

    Наконец-то я, Анатолий, очень извиняюсь за распространение Covid. Мы русские жесткие и мужественные. Мы не сжимаемся перед каким-то зародышем. Я положил фотографию с моим большим мечом, но когда я слышу о Ковиде, я ношу подгузник на лице, надеваю круглую шапочку и нагрудник и плачу, как ребенок. Я смотрю CLIFFHANGER о крутых мужчинах, но веду себя как Джулианна Мур в SAFE. Как я стал таким «проснулся»? Итак, теперь я говорю ад с Ковидом. Защищайте дома престарелых, но остальные люди просто живут жизнью и отдают средний палец Ковиду. Русские люди побеждают монголов, турок, французов и немцев. Русские люди ныряют в ледяную воду. Итак, русские люди сжимаются перед Ковидом не очень русскими.

  63. Daniel Chieh says

    I’m tempted to read this out loud with a squeaky voice filter.

  64. Philip Owen says

    That’s a forced situation. Sanctions and the absolute dominance of hydrocarbons and their immediate downstream products (eg fertilizer, enhanced by mineral fertilizer to be sure) in Russia’s export products. Hydrocarbons are no longer enough. Russia has to find some added value.

  65. Passer by says

    Its not a forced situation but a deliberate move away from the declining western economies towards the growing economies of the rest of the world, where the growth and money is. For example various infrastructure is being built towards Eurasia. And many other countries are moving away from the West too, for example right now China is becoming the biggest trading partner for most of the countries around the world. Center of economic gravity is becoming the east.

    How China Overtook the U.S. as the World’s Major Trading Partner

    https://www.visualcapitalist.com/china-u-s-worlds-trading-partner/

    Sanctions matter less and less by every day as these are sanctions by declining countries that matter less and less in the global economy. And are being rejected by “allied” countries such as Israel, Turkey or South Korea. Or Germany exporting whole factories into Russia to bypass them.

    As for value added Russia for example dominates the world’s nuclear power plant market, is reindustrialising and becoming a large food producer and exporter. The US hysterics about countries buying the S-400 are pretty good example.

    Anyway, i suggest you don’t worry about Russia, worry about yourself.

  66. It has to implode in the West, or else it will colonize everything else.

    There are signs that Western systems are becoming increasingly unstable, enough that the economic efficiency of the megacity will be undermined.

    If American conservatives have enough of a spine to cull NASCAR, maybe there is hope.

  67. Mary Marianne says

    The plan is to have those students only temporary around in order to teach the new generation of African elites to see politics through a Chinese lens, rather than through the current dominant western paradigm.

    There were African students in China as early as in the 1980s, but they were all booted back home when they started to cause problems. The treatment is still no different in 2020, where illegal African migrants in Guangdong are also being booted out. You can only stay if you don’t challenge the Chinese laws and don’t cause troubles.

  68. anonymous coward says

    You will NEVER be Chinese!

    Whew, thank God.

  69. Another thing Russia need: Family and Children Parade. Make June in Russia for celebration of family, tradition, and children. Massive festivity and marches by fathers, mothers, grandparents, and children. Such contrast to West where massive marches about homos who do fecal penetration and trannies who cut off dongs and balls.

    Family Appreciation vs ‘gay pride’. Russia do better with father, mother, children in happy parade.
    West totally cucked with tutti fruity funny stuff with men in high heels strut like silly girls.

    I declare June in Russia Family Pride and Appreciation month. And real family, not stupid stuff about Heather have two mommies. I ask, where her daddy? He not count?

    To woke yuck capital, I say “take that”. We Russians value family. We Russians appreciate grandpa and grandma. Dear babushka. We have great month where family celebrated and when all Russian go to cemetery and remember ancestor.

    Woke Capital tell Russia, “celebrate homo bunghole.” To woke yuck capital, we say “stick it up your bung.” We celebrate father, mother, and children. We honor grandparents and ancestors. We Russians proud but also humble and remember where we come from. We not come from bunghole of ‘gay’.

    Like great Tom Petty say, “Don’t come around queer no more.”

  70. Probably fake news. But you need a subscription to read the article.

    The average IQ in Africa is 75…the average IQ in China is 105. This tells you that between Africa and China…China has the brightest people.

    China would be stupid to bring blacks, with all the genetic attribute problems, into their country.

  71. Astuteobservor II says

    It is super hard to become a Chinese citizen. Probably harder than Japanese. You don’t even become a citizen after marrying a Chinese girl. I have no idea about the kid from such a marriage though.

    But you can 100% live in China without the need of citizenship.

  72. Philip Owen says

    My business is trade and investment in Russia. I see it from the ground up.
