Reality Check on Putin as a Dissent Right Nationalist By James Reed

Some, indeed many, dissent Right sites are rooting for Putin, who they see as a defender of traditionalism, including Christianity. However, as Jim Goad has argued in his own unique style, this is just a myth, for the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. Putin may attack aspects of the decadent West, but he has his own hostilities as Goad rightly notes, basically towards Anglo-Saxons, so unlike the West, he thinks racially.

“Putin Goes Full-Blown Antagonistic Toward Satanic Anglo-Saxon West

From the very start of the conflict in Ukraine I’ve made clear that I don’t take a side, because the very fact that a World War is brewing while the world economy is already teetering on collapse will be bad for the United States no matter who wins, assuming that there will be any winners when the radioactive dust settles.

Although I find it hard not to admire Vladimir Putin merely for the fact that he’s one tough, cold eel, I have noticed a tendency among many of the Extremely Online to cheer for Russia in this conflict because they seem to be so myopically fixated on specific issues that they actually think we’re on the brink of a thermonuclear war for no other reason than to decide whether or not it’s acceptable for  … [institutionised paedophilia]

In a speech Putin held on Friday to formally announce Russia’s annexation of four regions in Ukraine, he did criticize the “West” — a term he seemed to use at least ten times for every time he mentioned Ukraine — for foisting “degradation” and “perversions” on “children in our schools.” He even referred to it as Satanism:

Such a complete denial of man, the overthrow of faith and traditional values, the suppression of freedom acquiring the features of a “reverse religion” [the opposite of what the religion is] — outright Satanism.

Okay, so far I can comprehend how this is all juicy red meat for that cloistered contingent of people whose daydreams are filled with thoughts of Satan and pedophilia. I get it, I swear I do.

But everything else in Putin’s speech signals that while these types of people consider him a natural ally, their love is likely unrequited. I doubt this former KGB officer cares if you like him or think he’s “based.” If you’re a proud Western Christian nationalist, he seems more likely to view you as an archenemy than a friend.

First off, while Putin may claim to be a Christian, he clearly does not see Russia as a Christian nation. In his speech he made sure to note the tremendous influence of “the great moral values of Orthodoxy, Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism” on “Russian culture.” A purely Orthodox culture would not accept Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism, much less give them equal billing.

He claimed that “Russophobia” is racist and that it’s “now spreading all over the world.”

He reminded the world that only the US has actually dropped nuclear bombs on countries, and that despite the Western media’s insistence that Russia is the imperialist aggressor in this situation, it is actually America that has held a unipolar military and financial stranglehold on the rest of the world since 1945:

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the West decided that the world, all of us, would forever have to put up with its dictates. . . . The profits from World War II allowed the United States to finally overcome the consequences of the Great Depression and become the largest economy in the world, to impose on the planet the power of the dollar as a global reserve currency.

He implied that “Anglo-Saxons” — he mentioned them by race, not by country — were behind the “sabotage” of the Nord Stream gas pipelines.

Claiming that Russia “led the anti-colonial movement” in the 1900s, Putin then dragged “the West” — yes, all of it — all the way back to the Middle Ages and essentially bitch-slapped us for all of the same unpardonable sins that your typical far-Left college-geek Poli Sci major blames us these days:

It is worth reminding the West that it began its colonial policy back in the Middle Ages, and then followed the global slave trade, the genocide of Indian tribes in America, the plunder of India, Africa, the wars of England and France against China, as a result of which it was forced to open its ports for trade opium. What they did was put entire nations on drugs, purposefully exterminated entire ethnic groups for the sake of land and resources, staged a real hunt for people like animals.

These are the words of someone preparing to justify the wholesale slaughter of an irredeemable group that he’s marked and tagged as evildoers. It doesn’t seem to matter whether or not you think he’s cool.”

Yes, beware of Putin; beware of them all!
