Military Review

The holy simplicity of the liberals

80

Recently, Vladimir Pozner in his interview pleased us with a liberal assessment of what is happening in Ukraine: “They have achieved a lot ... they choose the president, and not someone else. They can say: “We chose Poroshenko, we chose Zelensky, we have real elections, and you have what?”


Democracy Poroshenko


This is how our famous observer and liberal sees democracy in Ukraine, which “has achieved a lot,” unlike Russia. We can say that when Poroshenko was elected, they almost killed presidential candidate Oleg Tsarev: “civil activists” met him right after the live broadcast, and no democracy saved him, Tsarev had to escape in Moscow. Until now, Oleg Tsaryov is forced to live in Moscow, like many other well-known Ukrainian politicians, because "democracy" in Ukraine is controlled by "civic activists", part-time militants of neo-Nazi paramilitary groups, "Azov" has come to the fore today. Our discerning liberal does not see all this. Why?

Because the candidacy of Poroshenko passed preliminary approval in the Western capitals of recognized leaders of Western democracy, including Angela Merkel herself, after which Poroshenko unexpectedly received a frenzied sociology from sociologists associated with Western capitals, which was expected to be fixed by voting figures. A number of political scientists then argued that Poroshenko’s victory in the elections was drawn, it was a pure fraud, but who remembers this today? Time passed and everything was covered with the armor of "democracy", behind which our Posner also hides today.

This is a liberal paradox: its luminaries, so insightful and farsighted in some cases, in others, and standing nearby, are surprisingly short-sighted and naive. Just holy simplicity!

Democracy Zelensky


Poroshenko does not seem to see all the “achievements” of Poroshenko over the years of his presidency: he does not see the unleashed war in the Donbass, political killings in Ukraine, none of which are disclosed, nor the one with which the Poroshenko unanimously swept the voters in the next election. Because he sees a glorious victory in the election of Vladimir Zelensky. But he forgets to say what she was provided with. We recall: Zelensky literally promised to put Poroshenko "on the bench." For this, the people chose him, but is still waiting for the promised.

The people voted against Poroshenko, so Zelensky won, what a democracy! Just settling the bills! However, it was not at all the people who were the main protagonists in this “democratic act”, but the chief of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Azov Nazi Regiment Arsen Avakov: his militants fearlessly drove the incumbent President Poroshenko around the country and did not allow the SBU Gritsak to “draw” the results of the next election. Avakov received the sanction for this at the US State Department during an urgent pre-election trip to Washington, after which he innocently declared: "We will have a new political cycle." Turned out to be a prophet!

Therefore, the Azov militants, led by the “white leader” Biletsky, today behave like real masters in the country and push the president Zelensky, openly threaten him with a maidan, dumbbell and grand piano, and the whole president is crouching in front of his detractors.

Both the President Zelensky and President Poroshenko were appointed by the US State Department, and people counted by sociologists served as extras and extras at polling stations under the street control of neo-Nazi militants. That’s the whole “democracy." Or a performance? Posner sees this as “democracy”, “the people chose Zelensky,” and we see that without Poshenko’s staff decision on Zelensky and Avakov’s force support, Poroshenko would have remained for a second term, which he hinted at.

However, the real Russian liberals, not only Posner, see all this as “democracy”, because it is right, pro-Western, because it is agreed with Washington. Therefore, with all neo-Nazis on the streets of Kiev, performances and political repressions, it is “correct” for liberals.

They probably understand to themselves that today's Ukraine is a colony, but the colony is a western one, which means that progress is evident. Because all the values ​​and freedoms for our liberals are just words that cover up the main task: to put Russia under the West. They laid Ukraine under the West, albeit with the help of the Bandera Nazis, and they are happy about this, therefore they see this as “democracy” and the free choice of the people, but they don’t see neo-Nazis. Sometimes a Jesuit excuse slips among some liberal figures and even the media: Russia itself would be better off if the West strangled it a little in a colonial embrace. It will eventually become somehow a Western country ... It seems that there is only one way out: either Russia or the fifth liberal column in Russia will disappear.

Chameleon syndrome


Therefore, columnist Posner sees "democracy" in Ukraine. Since the sun of democracy rises only in the West, and in the East it always sets. Therefore, the East must always look up to the West from the bottom up and not notice its spots, even neo-Nazi. This is the main liberal democratic value.


And you can’t say that Posner is stupid and does not see all the stupidity of this liberal analysis, rather, on the contrary. What are we observing in this case? Yes, this is a Chekhovian chameleon, who is either cold or hot, and either hides himself with a democratic western coat, then takes it off and gritted his teeth: “State Duma!” So ​​Posner answers his own question: “And what do we have?”

And here we have President Vladimir Putin, who has enjoyed so many years such obvious support from the people that elections really become in some sense a formality. We see a similar picture in Germany, where the authority of Merkel deprives the local elections of intrigue for many years, and she herself has been the chancellor for many years. In this, Merkel keeps pace with Putin, but Posner does not have questions for Germany: “And what do they have?” Because, according to the liberal definition, the western sun cannot have spots.

      What a strange propaganda statement .. This very "formality" led to the fact that Putin, without batting an eye, forgot all his promises, including not raising the retirement age .. And now, Putin has no popular support, or rather, he has lost it greatly ..
      We see a similar picture in Germany, where the authority of Merkel deprives the local elections of intrigue for many years, and she herself has been the chancellor for many years.

      But the Germans have only one question for Merkel-migrants .. For the rest, the Germans have every shot! Unlike us ..

          And why then did Putin persuade us to silently accept this pension reform? He would have said right away that he had been forced to break through this reform of the IMF, and he could not go against the IMF. He didn’t say that.
          And on the other hand, it is interesting that Crimea join the IMF as well? Or did Putin not ask permission from the IMF?

              Not so, Ruslan! In the 91st I voted for the Union, for reforms, those that benefit the country and people. And not for the destruction of the country and the transfer of free created and acquired by the people into the hands of criminals and traitors.
              But the 93rd could already grow wiser, but alas, the insight came much later.

        This is how Kamenev specializes in propaganda. Moreover, in a cheeky manner "sculpts a hunchback to the wall", not embarrassed by the fact that reality is obviously different from his ideologically verified enthusiasm for power.

                Stalin was not scared. Only not those times now. Not at all begging for his merits to the fatherland, I will simply recall how many victims and at what cost industrialization came. How many people died from illnesses, unbearable labor, and simply hunger. Such a breakthrough came at a price. And by the way, I’m looking, do not burn with the desire to put life on the altar of work .... Look how they howled for pensions. I understand that you have long worked your way. They need Stalin ...

But basically, all are for the Communists, even young people, who are 20- 30 years .. You can certainly assume that in private conversations they say that they will vote for the Communists, and then they go and vote for the edro .. but this is unlikely, but the administrative resource has not been canceled yet.

      "I have always thought that democracy is the rule of the people. But Comrade Roosevelt clearly explained to me that democracy is the rule of the American people."

      Read slowly, not forgetting the characteristic accent. I can not guarantee that these are the true words of Stalin. Everything is available on the Internet, the source is not indicated. But the style is similar. Those who read Stalin’s correspondence with Roosevelt and Churchill will undoubtedly recall the more unpleasant passages for the last two.

    One of Posner's associates was asked "Why is the extermination of Belarusians not a Holocaust?"
    Answer- "Because the Belarusians were exterminated not for their nationality, but for disobeying the laws established by the new authorities."

    In his interview, Vladimir Pozner pleased us with a liberal assessment of what is happening in Ukraine: “They have achieved a lot ... they choose the president, and not someone else. They can say: “We chose Poroshenko, we chose Zelensky, we have real elections, and you have what?” And you can’t say that Posner is stupid and does not see all the stupidity of this liberal analysis, rather, on the contrary.
    And what can be expected from a person who is not Russian, and not born in Russia, and who has lived a conscious life in the West. Man by nature is Russophobe and liberal in fact. It is unclear how he got on such a lowdown on our television to corrupt the minds and souls of our youth?

      Posner is neither liberal nor Russophobe. He just does what he can and thereby earns a living. Nothing personal just business. In Soviet times, was one of the main mouthpieces of the propaganda of communism, now liberalism. He who pays to him is a faithful slave.

    From the utterances of classics and quotes from literary works.

    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
    “I don’t believe in our intelligentsia, hypocritical, false, hysterical, ill-mannered, deceitful, I don’t even believe when it suffers and complains, because its oppressors come out of its very depths.”

    Fedor Ivanovich Tyutchev:
    Wasted work!
    No, you can’t understand them:
    The more liberal, the vulgar;
    Civilization is a fetish for them,
    But their idea is not available to them.

    As you bow down before her, gentlemen,
    You cannot gain recognition from Europe:
    In her eyes you will always be
    Not servants of enlightenment, but serfs.

    Vasily Osipovich Klyuchevsky, historian.
    "There is such a weak-necked intelligentsia, which can not keep silent about anything, can not bring anything to the place, and through the newspapers pours out everything that clogs its indiscernible stomach."
    Classification of the intelligentsia:
    1) People with a patchwork worldview sewn from newspaper and magazine scraps.
    2) Sectarians with hardened commandments, but without a way of thinking and even without the ability to think.
    3) The slivers floating with the stream are liberal or conservative opportunists, both without beliefs and without thoughts, with just words and appetites.

    But it should be noted that sometimes he gets to the point when talking about the problems in Russia. And this is the fault of those who steal, "giving them good material for discussion," for liberal journalists: Vladimir Pozner, Alexander Nevzorov, etc. Who, with the benefit of the West, attract young people.
    Why data and other "liberal aristocrats" are not kicked out of the information flow.
    For those in power, such journalists are beneficial. Because they can always say to impressionable heads: "We have democracy."

      After the defeat in the war of 1904-1905, the intelligentsia and "other thoughtful" wrote congratulatory letters to Japan, they admired the victory of the "enlightened Japan" which "punished the bast shoes of Russia."
      And in the event of Russia's defeat in the battle for Novorossiya, we can guess how they will laugh, gloat, "teach Russian people how to live." Therefore, if we defend Novorossiya, it means that it will be bad for the liberals, so we will take the path of restoring the Russian state.

    Posner mixed in a bunch with Ukraine (again?) - both of them got sick of it like dirt under their feet. And then suddenly a panegyric to the permanent rower in the galleys. A thought creeps in, and not for the sake of these couple of lines the whole article was written? Any mention of a signatory to the retirement genocide has long been toxic.

Talented children of officials sitting on the boards of Russia's largest banks from liberals? No ... Pensions raised by leaders? No...

    Found scapegoats.

    And as for Posner, he achieved all that he has with his labor and can express his thoughts in what form is convenient for him, how convenient, and what is convenient. For this is his opinion.

    So, by the way, let me clarify with specialists in pension reform:
    if I understood correctly: BEFORE the law on raising retirement age V. Putin everything was class and the average Russian pension allowed the average Russian pensioner to live happily ever after. So?
    But a new law happened, pension age was increased and now, AFTER the law on increasing pension age, V. Putin, everything has become NOT class and the average Russian pension will NOT allow the average Russian pensioner to live happily ever after. So?

    Or maybe ... mmmm, .... something like this:
    Before the law on increasing the pension age by V. Putin, everyone, on the average, drove a bald up to 55-60 years old and received "kopecks" on retirement; and now, AFTER the law on increasing the pension age by V. Putin, will everyone, on the average, drive a bald up to 60-65 years old and will receive "pennies" in retirement?

    Frankly, I had to work with people of pre-retirement age and have a lot .... Nope ....
    In 9 out of 10 cases - "netcoat". More "open iksel", of course, they can ... But then - light ink and go buy bills. By the way, I fully understand this situation. For this is how the mosque of an elderly person is arranged.
    I will say more! I dream to retire faster !!!! No, seriously, no kidding! But for a normal life on my pension I take certain steps, in advance, and at the same time I do not count in the slightest on the state and "mmm-s" in the form of any pension funds ...

    In some respects, liberals are still right: Russia really needs to integrate into the West, this govnokon conflict is no good to anyone. But to integrate wisely, like Singapore, and not on any conditions throw oneself in the legs, as liberals see it. Ideal Russia is a part of the West, a showcase of capitalism and the vanguard of the free world, an anti-Chinese shield. In general, one of the main beneficiaries of the Western world order.

    The first one has for a long time been raising more questions than answers. Having the opportunity to compare, I see that by their policies they seem to be affiliates of CNN or BBC, managers and directors are similar from there, pursuing policies and ensuring the interests of our "partners" for our money. These are all so-called. correspondents and observers, artists, headed by their creative leader, who have Russophobia and hatred of everything Russian from their ears on all sorts of so-called. talk shows and miserable and mediocre TV series, but vehemently anti-Soviet and Russophobic have already made a fortune for themselves, providing themselves and their beloved children (who of course live and see their future overseas) for years to come. One thing is not clear, for what such masterpieces, all this garbage receives such fees and salaries, and even encouraged by the state. At our expense, we are also poured with mud, which means that the country's leadership has the same attitude towards its country and people, if their mouthpiece and policy maker has been working for another power for so many years.
