You know the Left is egregiously tyrannical when even Vladimir Putin thinks it proper to compare the woke “progress” they are attempting to do with what the Soviets did during the 1917 revolution and after.
For context, on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin (whom I’ll remind all of you used to be in THE USSR’S KGB!) gave a speech during a plenary session of the 18th annual meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club in Sochi, where the topic of discussion was “Global Shake-up in the 21st Century.”
In this speech, Putin said the following (keep in mind this was translated from Russian, so it might sound grammatically off at times): “We see with bemusement the paralysis unfolding in countries that have grown accustomed to viewing themselves as the flagships of progress. Of course, it’s none of our business or what is happening, the social and cultural shocks that are happening in some countries in the Western countries, some believe that aggressive blotting out of whole pages of your own history, the affirmative action in the interest of minorities, and the requirement to renounce the traditional interpretation of such basic values as mother, father, family, and the distinction between sexes are a milestone… a renewal of society.”
He alluded to the fact that while Western nations have a right to do whatever they wanted to do, “the overwhelming majority of Russian society” rejected this wokeness altogether.
“The preparedness of the so called social progress believe that the bringing a new conscience, a new consciousness to humanity, something that is more correct. But there is one thing I would like to say: The recipes they come up with are nothing new. Paradoxical as it may seem, but this is something we saw in Russia. It happened in our country before after the 1917 revolution, the Bolsheviks followed the dogmas of Marx and Engels. And they also declared that they would go in to change the traditional lifestyle, the political, the economic lifestyle, as well as the very notion of morality, the basic principles for a healthy society. They were trying to destroy age and century long values, revisiting the relationship between the people, they were encouraging informing on one’s own beloved and families. It was hailed as the march of progress. And it was very popular across the world and it was supported by many, as we see, it is happening right now.”
“Incidentally,” he continued, “the Bolsheviks were absolutely intolerant of other opinions, different from their own. I think this should remind you of something that is happening. And we see what is happening in the Western countries, it is with puzzlement that we see the practices Russia used to have and that we left behind in distant path, the fight for equality and against discrimination turns into an aggressive dogmatism on the brink of absurdity, when great authors of the past as Shakespeare are no longer taught in schools and universities because they announced as backwards classics that did not understand the importance of gender or race.”
“In Hollywood there are leaflets reminding what you should do in the cinema, in the films, how many personalities and actors you’ve got, what kind of color, what sex, and sometimes it’s even tighter and stricter than what the Department of Propaganda of the Soviet Communist Party Central Committee did,” continued the surprisingly based Russian president. “And the fight against racism, which is a lofty goal, turns into a new culture, cancel culture, and into reverse discrimination, racism on the obverse. And it brings people apart, whereas the true fighters for civic rights, they were trying to eliminate those differences. I asked my colleagues to find this quote from Martin Luther King, and he said, ‘I have a dream, that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.’ That is a true value.”
“You know, the Bolsheviks were speaking about nationalizing not just the property, but also women. The proponents of new approaches go so far as they want to eliminate the whole notions of men and women, and those who dare say that men and women exist and this is a biological fact, they are all but banished. Parent number one, parent number two, or the parent that has given birth, or instead of breastmilk, you say human milk. And you say all of that, so the people who are not sure of their sexual agenda are not unhappy.”
“And I would like to say that this is not something new, and the 20s and the 1920s, the Soviet couture Tagore came up with the so called ‘Newspeak,’ and they thought that thereby they were building a new consciousness and coming up with new values, and they went so far that we feel the consequences up until now,” concluded Putin. “There are some monstrous things when from a very young age, you teach to children that the boy can easily become a girl and you impose on them this selection, this choice. You push the parents aside and make the child take this decisions that can destroy their lives. And if we call the spade a spade this is nigh to crime against humanity and all of that under the banner of progress, while some people just want to do that.”
I will remind you once again that this man used to WORK for the Soviet Union’s KGB, and in many ways runs Russia as though it was still the USSR. And yet, he understands just what the American Left is bringing to the table by trying to be “woke” and “progressive.”
Now, I’m not so naïve as to think he was saying all this to warn the West that what is happening is extremely reminiscent of the Soviet Revolutionary tactics of the early 20th century. He even started that speech by noting the bemusement they had in seeing what is happening. He made this speech not to warn the West, but to warn Russia against following the West’s woke direction of regressive “progress.”
The Russian people reject, as well they should, this idiotic “woke” thinking which is nothing new whatsoever, but Putin understands that positive sentiment for it is popular in the West and it could infect the Russian Federation. While, again, Putin runs Russia as it was the Soviet Union, both he and the Russian people at large have at least SOME amount of basic and traditional human values. They reject the militant gay agenda, the idea that the white race is naturally oppressive (probably because over 90% of the Russian population is white), and the idea that a man can be a woman or vice versa.
These are all tropes of the modern day Left in the Western world (even the Chinese communists aren’t fond of homosexuality, given that the CCP banned “sissy” men from being seen on television) but whose Godless values could spread to other countries with relative ease.
Putin wants to protect Russia from such heinous values because, as he said, such values destroy society. But despite the fact that he was clearly just trying to warn Russia, it does inadvertently serve as a warning to the West, which is currently undergoing such an asinine cultural revolution.
What the Left is doing and is trying to do is destroy not only the United States, but also the Western world in general. The foot-soldiers have a misguided idea that the West is responsible for the world’s woes such as slavery (as though this wasn’t a thing in Egypt thousands of years ago), racism (again, as though it wasn’t a thing elsewhere), genocide and imperialism (redundant to say it again), etc. Those at the top, to one extent or another, know it’s all bullcrap but gain tremendously from Western culture being battered and divided in such a way.
Take, for example, the Black Lives Matter (not the organization, but the belief/slogan) vs. All Lives Matter debate. This is a debate which, for the most part, I do not care to take part in any longer because I’ve come to the realization that most people, certainly the reasonable ones, are arguing over something that they agree on.
This is what I mean: Those who chant “Black Lives Matter”, at least the reasonable ones, don’t generally exclude other lives. While the slogan and chant seem exclusionary, no reasonable person who says that chant will also go on to say “I mean ONLY Black Lives Matter.” They believe that other people’s lives matter apart from black people’s, again, at least the reasonable ones. There are unreasonable people who say “no lives matter until Black Lives Matter”, which is preposterous and outright evil, and THAT is most certainly exclusionary and emphasizes that only black lives matter. But for the most part, I think that the foot-soldiers who side with “Black Lives Matter” don’t exclude other races.
As a result, they inadvertently admit that all lives matter. On the flipside, those who say “All Lives Matter” believe that, naturally, black lives are included. No reasonable person who says “All Lives Matter” will say “but not the black ones.” Frankly, I haven’t heard anyone on that side of the debate make such an assertion.
So what you have is one side, Black Lives Matter, believing that black lives matter and so do other people’s, and you have another side, All Lives Matter, believing that black lives matter and so do other people’s. THEY ARE ARGUING OVER SOMETHING THEY AGREE ON!
And this is what the elites and the establishment are gunning for: the division of the people so that we focus our efforts on each other as opposed to them. Somehow, the elite class has managed to make people argue over something that both “sides” agree on. Sure, like I said, there are those who are lunatics and exclusionary, but those are few and far between; the exception. Most people believe that all lives matter, even if they chant “Black Lives Matter.” So all we’re doing by engaging in this debate is wasting time and energy going at each other’s throats, when it’s the elite class which is pulling the strings in all this and causing such division and chaos.
This is what they do with pretty much everything. They do it with climate change, they do it with sexuality and the sexes in general, they do it with shootings, with terrorist attacks, and do it with homosexuality, all in the name of “progress”. They sow discord and chaos and division. This is what the Soviets did in the early 20th century, as Putin full-well understands, ironically.
The reason I say all this isn’t to try and back away from a debate, but to try and redirect it. It’s because I try to differentiate between the weak (those who say “BLM” but believe ALM) and the wicked (those who either say “no lives matter until BLM” or who attempt to further sow discord), knowing that at least the weak can be convinced to join our side. It’s hard to convince the weak that they are wrong when we treat them as wicked and just as culpable of the division and chaos as the elite ruling class.
The modern Left, the establishment elites, must not only be defeated but utterly DESTROYED AND CRUSHED everywhere, in basically every manner. Else, only the dissolution of society, Western and Eastern, will await us. Take heart, then, that God is with us and not with them.
“No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
