I am sure other writers have posted articles articulating this same sentiment, however I am a little slow and the possibility only just dawned on me.
Left Wing Anti-Russian Agitation
We keep seeing more and more of this anti-Russian hysteria on the part of people like Hillary Clinton, Angela Merkel, and all the other sort of big-government progressive Western leaders. To people like us who are rational human beings this has all seemed quite bizarre and idiotic. Most of the analysis I have seen tends to either attribute it to 1) the military industrial complex and weapons industry and their financial and political ties to these Western rulers, 2) these Western rulers basically serving as proxies for the state of Israel, and 3) just general ideological difference between the globalist, maternalist, suicidalist Occidental left and the masculinist, traditionalist, Christian power structure in Russia.
However, the more I think about it, the more I am inclined to attribute it to 4) the desire on the part of rulers like Merkel to use a trumped up ‘confrontation’ with Russia to crack down on right-wing political dissent.
Individuals like Merkel and Hollande and their contemporaries know that mass Muslim immigration has made them very unpopular among their native citizenry. Right-wing anti-immigration groups like Front Nationale, Alternatives fur Deutschland, and others are rapidly increasing their share of the electorate. There is massive unrest among both the Muslim immigrant population and the native population. These rulers would like nothing more than to completely tamp down on free speech, political opposition, and all other threats to their power. They view the right-wing preservationist elements of the native population as being such a threat.
They cannot do this as things currently stand however, because native citizens in their countries- even if they do not actively support parties like the FN and AfD- are still squeamish enough about mass immigration that they would oppose such a non-Democratic crackdown.
HOWEVER, if the Merkels and Hollandes (and to some extent Clintons) can agitate their nations into a minor to moderate confrontation with Russia that gets their citizens scared, then they will use such circumstances as an excuse or justification to start going after these right-wing/preservationist political opponents, as they will claim such groups are aligned with Russia, fronts of Russia, or just ‘threats to national security’, etc.
We see the foundations of this already, in the contrasting Hillary Clinton speeches demonizing Russia and the Alt Right. We see the same thing with Glenn Beck. Earlier this year Beck gave one of his classic meandering, apocalyptic, warning monologues on the Alt Right being secret Russian terrorist agents.
I am going to paste Beck’s speech below for the purpose of highlighting this incipient narrative of Identitarianism within the West (and by extension opposition to mass immigration) being a front for Russian espionage. Again, it is classic Beck, with broad leaps of faith when it comes to the facts, wild suppositions, and grandiose WWIII apocalypticism, all centered in just enough truth to make it seem plausible to his listeners.
As Beck said:
But they also found guns and training from Vladimir Putin’s Russia. They now have — their version of the FBI has on tape Russian operatives going over in Europe, specifically in this case Hungary, coming in and training terrorists, alt-right terrorists.
But Vladimir Putin has other designs. If you understand Neo-Eurasianism. Say it. Can you say it for me? Eurasianism. Neo-Eurasianism. If you understand that, which we will get into at a later date — if you understand that, he is correcting the mistakes of modernism.
I want you — the reason why I issued this warning yesterday — and I can’t give you a stronger warning — I don’t know if I ever have on anything. Yesterday, I wrote this on Facebook and said, “Look, there are some — without getting into great detail, I’m going to be very general, but there are some things where you can spot their influence.
This is a generalization, and it is not always true. But if you take the time and read Facebook, you will notice that many times people are on Facebook, and it’s like what they’re saying is not in their first language. You will see that what they’re saying and how they’re writing it is not — is clearly not their first language.
There are words that you may not have ever heard before or heard sparingly. But now all of a sudden, they are everywhere. And other terms and ideas that were not a conservative driving force — for instance, trade barriers. That’s not conservative. How come trade barriers are now suddenly so huge? There are ideas that were never conservative, but most of us just go, “Huh. I must have missed something. All of a sudden, this is everywhere. I don’t know what that is.” The way they’re describing things with new spins, the ideas might sound really good. We just dismiss and support them or accept them. If you repost (phonetic), one of the easiest wonders to know, you are now entering the world of the alt-right is the cuckservative. That word was nowhere. What the hell is a cuckservative? Right? How many times have you thought of that?
In Europe itself, we see the Merkel government in Germany falling over themselves to limit free speech and crackdown on political opposition. Merkel’s government is funding Antifa groups who harass and attack citizens for voting for opposition right wing parties, as we documented here. Just this last week she (rather bizarrely) attacked search engines and demanded that tech companies make their search algorithms public. This follows Merkel being famously caught on an open microphone asking Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerbeg what Facebook was doing to limit anti-migrant ‘hate speech’ (see below video).
If I am right in this supposition, then events over the next year- in which America and four key European nations have national elections- should have a very direct bearing on the lives of all European and American patriots. For if Hillary Clinton wins in America and the regressive leftist candidates in those four European countries win their elections, then we may very well see anti-Russian agitation grow by leaps and bounds. If it does, I would not be surprised if those governments attempt to ruthlessly crack down on internal right wing opposition.
Editor’s Note: Here is some fun additional info on Glenn Beck
Video quoted in above article:
-Beck is actually 6’3″ but somehow manages to look 5’4″ on camera.
-Beck has increasingly taken to dressing like a thirteen year old (see above video).
-Beck set a world record for estrogen count among 40-59 year old men.
-I actually can’t help but kind of like the guy, despite the fact that he and his politics are insane. He is like this utter moron who has had tremendous success by playing the ‘loveable loser’ card for all its worth.
