Here is a glimpse in the Jewish mind: Bill Maher.
“Russia,” Maher said during his New Rules segment on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, “is one of the last places on earth to say, ‘F*ck diversity. We’re here. We’re white. Get used to it.’ “
Attempting to explain how 87% of Republicans (according to a recent poll) are fine with Russia’s president Vladimir Putin visiting the White House, Maher chalked it up to racism, and even quoted a tweet from his old pal Ann Coulter.
“Last year Ann Coulter tweeted that ‘In 20 years, Russia will be the only country that is recognizably European.’ As far back as 2013 Matt Drudge called Putin the leader of the free world. David Duke called Russia the key to white survival.
“Today’s Republicans, what’s left of them, do not like the melting pot,” he said. “And Russia? That pot don’t melt.”
Making jokes about White Russians (“Let’s see, I want to get drunk but I also want a glass of milk”) and Russian basketball players (“the team that played against the Globetrotters”), Maher compared racial diversity (or lack thereof) in Russia to that of Western Europe.
“At the recent World Cup,” he said, “the French national team didn’t look like the Old France, it looked like the New France. Germany let in a million Syrians. The Fatherland is now the Brotherland.
“You know how many Syrian refugees Russia has taken in? Two. Martin Sheen has more refugees in his poolhouse.”
Ending the bit with a bite, Maher concluded, “A Barack Obama does not become the president of Russia. Wingnuts used to accuse Obama of being a foreign agent who took over America, but when a foreign power actually did take over America and it was the proudly white one, their response was ‘come right on in.’
“To the members of the Grand Old Party, Russia meddling in our elections isn’t a breach of national security, it’s just white people helping white people. Or what Republicans call governing.”
For more of this, check Alexander Reid Ross:
“I see a number of red-brown alliances forming today, particularly in the field of political geography. A number of far-right groups view the modern-day axis of Syria, Iran and Russia as a kind of international counterweight to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which has always been seen by fascist groups as a kind of nemesis led by the nations that defeated the Rome-Berlin axis in 1945.”
““Assad is a figure that is central to a realization of Eurasionism,” embodying the idea that, “Russia will lead the world out of a dark age of materialism and toward an ultranationalist rebirth of homogenous ethno-states federated under a heterogeneous spiritual empire.”
or Jodi Jacobson:
“Putin, Trump, and Kavanaugh: A Triad of White Supremacy and Oligarchy. Putin is an ethnic nationalist, a white supremacist, and an Islamophobe.”
This is where paranoia gets you. No, Putin is not a white supremacist. He actually does not like the Russian far right too much. And Russia is horrified by eastern European white nationalism in the Baltics and Ukraine.
Now, it is true that Russia supports Trump, Orban, Le Pen, Salvini, the Austrian FPO party, etc. It is also against Sunni Islamism, of the type of ISIS. And Russia does have close relations with both Israel and Israel’s enemies – Syria and Iran. Russia took very few refugees in recent years and advised Europe to do the same. The country now strongly supports Christianity and a record number of new churches are being built.
But one should not forget that Russia is quite diverse country. Ethnic Russians are 80 percent or even less of it, Muslims 15%, and there are lots of Asians and mixed people. Northern Caucasus is basically ethnically cleansed from non-Muslims and they have something close to Sharia Law in Chechnya. Russia is the number 4 world destination for immigration, mainly from Ukraine and Central Asia. You can go to jail in Russia for promoting Nazism. Russia has close relations with Asia and sees itself as a bridge between the West and the East.
While the fact that Russia supports right wing forces and conservatives in the West is a good thing, one should also not forget that Russia is quite diverse country and has no interest in fanning white nationalism at home, which it fears could break up the country and its close relations with Asia.
As for Jews, paranoia that everybody is out to get them is typical for them. They see a potential Hitler everywhere. Putin is no Hitler. Russia is not 99 % white country, lacking diversity, as Maher hallucinates. This is where paranoia gets you. Even smart people lose their brains. And maybe this is a Jewish weakness, who knows?
What is true though is that Russians are becoming more socially conservative, don’t like too much political correctness, feminism and liberalism, they do not believe in globalism, but in national sovereignty and multipolarity, a 18th century type political world, where the world is not ruled by a single center, but by many poles, each with their own culture, and they do hope for some “conservative alliance” with the Western Right, provided they are given their sphere of influence in parts of Eastern Europe. If they are unable to get along with the West though, the country will move closer to Asia, both politically and demographically.Palestinian President Abbas hopes to meet with Putin in June
