Read all of the Saker’s breakdown of Putin’s landmark speech last week.
Let me repeat that the dictatorship of the Western elites targets all societies, including the citizens of Western countries themselves. This is a challenge to all. This complete renunciation of what it means to be human, the overthrow of faith and traditional values, and the suppression of freedom are coming to resemble a “religion in reverse” – pure Satanism. Exposing false messiahs, Jesus Christ said in the Sermon on the Mount: “By their fruits ye shall know them.” These poisonous fruits are already obvious to people, and not only in our country but also in all countries, including many people in the West itself.
Comment: and now he said it, openly and directly – what Russia is threatened by and struggling against is pure Satanism. If I am not mistaken, that is the first time that Putin ever used such words. And, just to clarify, he does not mean “bad” or “evil” he means it literally: the forces arrayed against Russia today are Satanic in their origin and core. Oh, I know, in the West this reference to “Satanism” will only trigger condescending smiles and, as always, a deep sense of superiority over these primitive, Asiatic, barbarians. But here Putin is not addressing the western audience, but the Russian one and in the Russian civilizational realm to speak of “pure Satanism” is a very shocking and compelling argument. It brings this entire war into the realm of a “just war” fought for profound spiritual reasons, not just money or power. I personally consider these words as the single most important part of Putin’s speech!
Read the whole thing.
Part of the arrogance and genocide from the Werewest is the Covid war and the war against, well, most of the post-modern wars. Yes, Nordstream and C19. Read that.
And, yes, Russia and most of the world are tired of this evil, and they are not going to have it anymore. Read that. Americans can (and should) wake up, though that alone will not stop the wicked foreigners who rule over them. Consult the Saker, above, about the domestic oppression in places like the US and the need to shake it off.
The Crimea bridge bombing. This is proof of several things. Truck bombs are powerful and tactically effective. Terrorism works. However, terrorism from a state actor (Ukraine) is evidence that formal military capability is gone. Thus, this is evidence that Russia is achieving her stated objectives in the SMO. Also, these attacks will not go unpunished.
Speaking of bridges, perhaps Americans should be less concerned with Crimea and more concerned with where they live. By any structural or systemic measure, the US is rapidly turning into a third world country. These measures include murder rates, with 60% of murders now committed by only 13% of the population.
Read all that and then get back to your enjoyable Saturday decline.
UPDATE: Half the Crimean Bridge has reopened already.
