"Davai Volodia!" or Putin as Louis XIV of the French unconscious

"Davai Volodia!" or Putin as Louis XIV of the French unconscious

French journalists in a slight bewilderment. As the Ukrainian crisis grows, the mood of their readership becomes more pro-Putin. Any material about what is happening in Eastern Europe, whether it is an ordinary informational message, or an analytical article, collects on the websites of the largest publications an unprecedented number of radical comments glorifying the political “genius” of the Kremlin sovereign.
Here are the comments on news about the first victims of the confrontation in Slavyansk, published on Sunday on the website of the newspaper Le Figaro.

"Now Putin has every right to intervene. And he will not keep himself waiting."

"The West is a miserable loser who adds fuel to the flames of democratic and legitimate demonstrations. I am ashamed that I am a citizen of a NATO member country."

"It's funny ... When pro-European forces are outraged is good. When pro-Russian are outraged is bad. Sleep, dear citizens ... sleep."

"Europe can congratulate itself on the Eastern front and in the connivance of the United States, who think only of" grandmas "and shout at the same time about freedom and democracy. The spiral of violence is untwisted and ends in disaster, unless the people of the two countries are smarter than their rulers ".

"Some deserve to be taught a good lesson. Come on, Volodya!" (the last phrase in the original is written in Latin letters in Russian - "Davai Volodia!")

A few dozen comments - one expressing condolences to the families of the victims, and one calling for the raising of NATO aircraft and the bombing of Russian Tanks. All the rest are approximately in the same vein as those quoted above.

"Figaro" - newspaper right. And its audience is appropriate. And since the Soviet times, the French Gaullists have been suspected of sympathizing with the Kremlin. But the left "Liberation" publishes the material under the heading, involuntarily prompting the reader to the correct answer: "Is Moscow's hand behind the flash of aggression in Ukraine?". Here the balance of power of online commentators is about fifty to fifty.

"The hand of Moscow? The West has no evidence. And don't the American and European secret services work there all the time?"

"The West has missed this Ukrainian mess and now Putin will give them all a boomerang effect."

"- Why does this question mark in the title? Do you have doubts about Putin’s involvement? Or are you nostalgic about" Great Russia?

- Both."

Political analyst Pierre-Henri d'Argenson from the University of Paris Sciences Po, who was interviewed by Figaro, considers something surprising. “In fact, it’s not so much the number of“ pro-Russian ”comments,” he says, “as the unconscious refusal of many French to succumb to a media injection that represents Putin’s Russia as an evil empire. This is a new intellectual rebellion that reveals a deep rejection of the dominant ideological order. Internet makes this rebellion of free expression of opinions more accessible. In the coming years, we will see how this suspicious attitude towards "obligatory thoughts" on one or another occasion will acquire more and more historical character. "

According to surveys, only 14 percent of the French in general have a positive attitude towards the activities of Vladimir Putin (data from the middle of January at the BVA Sociological Institute). However, from the same poll it follows that, experiencing hostility and fear as leader of Russia to Vladimir Putin, the majority of citizens of the Fifth Republic would not mind at all if such a leader would lead their country. 72 percent of the French consider it full of energy. 56 percent sure that he skillfully protects the interests of his people. 60 percent believe that under the leadership of Putin, Russia will become an increasingly powerful power.

Compare this data with a survey published last Sunday about the popularity of Francois Hollande (18’s total support percent, the lowest for all history country result), and much will become clear. The French, who even voted for him two years ago, are increasingly calling their “normal president” half-man, rohley and impotent.

“Here, of course, there is an element of seduction by the character’s“ masculinity ”, continues political analyst Pierre-Henri d'Argenton.“ It’s a mixture of composure and militant audacity. But the deep reason is still different. The collective unconscious of the French catches in the image of Vladimir Putin that then from Louis XIV. Absolute monarch. Authoritarian, but able to protect the Russian people from the powerful. French mainstream media does not understand this. When Putin orders to arrest Mikhail Khodorkovsky, it involuntarily resembles , as Louis XIV ordered the arrest of Fouquet (one of the richest people in France and the Minister of Finance under Louis XIV. - AB) This is tyranny, but the people see their interest in what is happening: if the king is able to depose the powerful of the world, then he can protect the interests of ordinary people.

      There is a pattern, Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan are leaders in living standards in the former USSR, and in all these countries there is a strong leader. I do not take into account the Baltic states; they have half of the country's income generated in Western Europe. And given that in Belarus there is no oil or gas, it turns out Old Man is the most effective president.

The media is processed and tuned by the people in a way that is beneficial to the country's leadership, and the country's leadership is pro-American imhtopent and also passive.

    All is correct. Europe is waking up. There it is also necessary to drive a wedge, splitting the West. It is necessary to tear Europe from the United States, leaving the amers in isolation.

    “It’s not so much the number of 'pro-Russian' comments that is striking,” he says, “but the unconscious refusal of many French people to succumb to media injection portraying Putin's Russia as an evil empire. It is a new intellectual revolt that reveals a deep rejection of the dominant ideological order. The Internet is making this rebellion of free expression more accessible. "

    All is correct. Glory to the Internet! The Internet can not only provoke color revolutions, but it can also serve as an instrument of opposition to the official media, which we see in the West. Despite the actively promoted point of view of officialdom, the real picture is gradually emerging in the eyes of ordinary people in the world.

    In fact, the United States even got its allies in the EU, which also begin to go against the will of their hegemon.
    "For the sake of a joint fight against Islamic extremism, the West must cooperate with Russia, despite the differences over Ukraine," said former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

    In Europe, it is time to introduce a separate sub-stage at the stage of accepting documents from candidates for presidents of countries and for deputies of parliaments:
    "Testing a candidate for traditional values ​​and for an orientation that excludes sadomic and other abnormal inclinations."
    It is well known that many sociologists and historians have noticed that rulers with an unconventional orientation and with abnormal tendencies behave like abnormal ones at critical moments in history and in ordinary decision-making.
    What a normal person will take as a decision is neither gay nor sadom, gay and sadom will accept the opposite.
    In short, in Europe, all candidates need to be tested for "a real man with eggs", and women for "a traditional attitude towards men and to have a husband." Otherwise, such insanity and mess that now they will lead Muslims to power in the EU, as a more correct and strong ideology. Many empires fell due to debauchery and sadomy.

    Putin is recognized as the most influential politician in the world. His rating is now at the peak of popularity. Why now he will not repeal the law allowing the cultivation of GMOs in Russia? Deputy Fedorov seemed to be trying to promote a ban bill. I asked on his site how things are going. To which he received a response from his assistant that all the same, in a quiet GMO will pass.

    How so ? Why, in France, to the indignation of agrarians did GMOs be rejected, in Switzerland did they hold a referendum where the people spoke out against, did the government not miss GMOs in Austria? You laugh at the “geyrope”, but see for yourself: with whom we can choose to sleep, but we can’t choose what to eat. This poison is imposed on us. Experiments on rodents showed that the third generation of GMO users was simply not born!

While the people of the Russian Federation are in euphoria from the Crimea, they are actively discussing Ukraine, anti-people laws pass quietly! And Putin, who is so admired by the majority on this site, does nothing to protect people from this deadly GMO! Putin’s patriotic speeches about Russian civilization, about the revival of Russia are just words. How will a people eating deadly poison be revived?

    Italy defiantly stalls aside even from the topic of discussion of sanctions.

    Cyprus lost a dream only at the mere thought that the Russians would leave the island.

    Hungary builds undemocratic nuclear power plants with the help of RosAtom.

    Spain is building Russian schools and is urgently teaching Russian, as Russians are buying up the coast.

    About Portugal just do not hear, she apparently is not in the know.

    England is like that monkey from a joke that cannot decide whether it is smart or beautiful, because and it seems that he wants a gas pipe to the island separately, and financiers in London walk with sad eyes, and again he builds RosAtom, and on the other hand, brothers because of a large puddle are asking to make Volodya byaku and it seems that this does not contradict their nature.

    The Netherlands is also silent, they will almost lose the most in Europe.

    Finns breathe a sigh of relief that they are not from the EU and the obligation does not apply to them.

    Southern Europe is waiting for its new Russian pipe.

    In general, soon it will come to the point that sanctions against Russia on behalf of the EU will introduce a couple of lonely buildings in Brussels.

    So he presented the picture: Barroso took the EU flag shouting "hurray" jumped out of the trench and ran towards Russia, looked back - one was running. Even Van Rompuy has merged with the area.
