WATCH: Who Are These Russians And Why Do We Hate Them?

In his film, Regis Tremblay examines the history of US-Russian relations, talks to ordinary Russian people, deconstructs propaganda and attempts to answer the question – Who are these Russians? And Why Do We Hate Them?

The escalating downturn of US relations with Russia has made the world a more dangerous place than at any time during the Cold War, including during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

This film explores the many reasons why the US foreign policy establishment since the end of World War II hates all things Russian. With the exception of John Kennedy who sought to end nuclear weapons and to seek peace with Russia, every president since has used Russia as a threat to American interests, security and Democracy.

Is Putin a thug and an assassin? Or he is a great, patriotic leader of a country that was nearly destroyed by President George Herbert Walker Bush’s CIA good old boys, Bill Clinton and the CIA asset Boris Yeltsin? But, perhaps the greatest fear is that Russia has regained its superpower status and because of the sanctions, has established close economic, diplomatic, political and military relations with China and the BRICS nations. And this is the biggest threat to American hegemony and capitalist interests around the world.

Nearly thirty years have past since the fall of the Soviet Union and still America and the West refuse to believe that Communism is dead and that Russia now embraces a market economy and most of the political and social values of the West. Thanks to Putin, Russia is again a global superpower and a threat to American hegemony and interests.

As citizens of this country, we have a responsibility for its actions. It is my hope that as Americans, we can accept the truth of our past and acknowledge the errors of our present course so that we can take our rightful place as one among equals with the rest of the world.

From the heading of his article I guessed that Regis Tremblay must be a Yank. Most countries _know_ “Who are the Russians” and do _not_ “hate them”. Mental conditioning into a public state of casual malevolence based on deliberate ignorance is a characteristic peculiar to the inhabitants of modern “Dumbed Down” U$A.

Another reason why the Anglo Zio Capitalists would love us to hate Putin is, that Russia has frustrated the AZC plan to partition Syria and take over Syria’s water, agricultural and hydrocarbon reserves. Uncle $cam’s spoilt brat of a nephew, Little Izzie, used to bomb Syria every 2 days with impunity! Now Putin has installed the Russian S-300 Air Defense System, and Izzie is throwing a hissie and Uncle is cross.

Anti-Putinism and Russophobia is a much deeper issue than that. It’s a war to eventually physically seize the vast natural assets worth perhaps $100 trillion.

This is plunder, by their own NATO jackboots or by engineering another Kiev revolution and having the likes of Khordokovsky and other Atlanticists sell off Russia’s vast wealth to Wall Street and political zionists.

They will even go nuclear if they deem it to be necessary to their interests. Such people are sheer evil, make no mistake about it. They will not stop.

Israel murdered Moussawi along with his family, in a pretty typical effort where sparing women and children only draws cynical garbage about ‘moral purity’. Yet they created a scourge for their own back in promoting Nasrallah, who may prove their Nemesis.

The really curious thing is if we go back some 150 years in US history, we find that the United States and Russia (in the form of the Russian empire) were actually friendly nations. The Russians undertook to defend California and New York during the US Civil War to prevent a possible British or British-allied invasion from the Pacific. This was at a time when the British were secretly assisting the breakaway Confederate States of America with a view to wrenching that potential country away from the US. The idea behind that being that a divided nation would be weakened… Read more »

One interesting aspect to the latest mutation of the Western manure machine is that it can no longer talk about “communism”. Now back in the “good old” Cold War days you could have an intellectual gloss on the anti-Russian blather precisely by talking about how communism could – allegedly – never work, how it would always – allegedly – lead to totalitarianism etc. What have you got now? Well – those Russkies are …..just….bad. Nasty. Just….evil. Putin – bad bad man. etc.

‘Communism’ or ‘socialism’ is just cant, words that trigger Pavlovian slobbering and screeching in Rightwing psychopaths. They exist to hate, steal and destroy, and ‘enemies’ must, and will, always be found. Any system that attempts to provide a decent life for all, not just a privileged class or tribal elite, is particularly hated, and marked for extermination.

I know this is very childish of me, and I know that the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs is far too professional and mature to even contemplate such a thing, but I’d love to see a no-holds-barred physical confrontation between Sergey Lavrov and Gavin ”Shut up and go away” Williamson.

I’d imagine that the pipsqueak Williamson would be shutting his mouth pretty bloody sharpish, and running away as fast as his little legs would carry him.

Gavin Williamson’s proper counterpart in Russia is Sergey Shoigu. Believe me, when you see a photo of Shoigu, you definitely would not wish to cross swords with this man.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergey_Shoygu

Not only because Shoigu actually has military experience and even collects swords but also because he appears a well-rounded and highly educated man.

All Williamson has to match wits and fists against Shoigu is that pet tarantula of his.

One of the intriguing questions in Regis Tremblay’s illuminating film is why, despite a horrific catalogue of aggression and violence, Americans, or citizens in many other parts of the world, cannot see these crimes for what they really are. Tremblay attempts to answer his own rhetorical question in this essay but while it contains fascinating insights it still does not quite hit the nail on the head when it comes to explaining why the US keep getting away with it with relatively low levels of domestic or international disgust. https://registremblay.com/powerful-american-myths-americans-cannot-see/ In the final stages of his illness Harold Pinter raged… Read more »

War and Peace, “the best novel”. “”A novel in which History is the main character”. Have just come, for the first tfme, to Borodino — a Napoleonic placename which you will _not_ find on the Arc de Triomphe nor on a railway station in Paris nor twinned with any town in France. “Able was I ere I saw Borodino”. Where the Russian bear chewed up most of Napoleon’s Grande Armee, leaving a few tattered and badly battered remnants limping off to meet their Waterloo. Sounds familiar? If not, do what I did in 2013 and search the historic Hitlerian placename,… Read more »

Got to the chapter where Tolstoy ruminates on the peculiar difficulty of conquering Russia — the fact that barbarous Russians do not obey the “civilized” rules of warfare like we do. In normal warfare we expect that when our army has beaten the opposing army, massacred the civilians and reduced their towns to rubble they will acknowledge our conquest. But 3 sets of would-be conquerors from Western Europe — from Sweden, from France, and from the Anglo-French-Polish-German conspiracy of 1938 — found differently. Tolstoy writes how difficult it was for Napoleon to foresee that the net result of his troops… Read more »

Napoleon and Hitler were quite different: the former diminished the power of the Church and the aristocracy greatly while modernizing society. Hitler saw any Slavs or Jews as untermenschen, outcasts. Any Nazi laws survived long after? Non, but Napoleonic laws did.

About the only things they had in common was their overreach to concur Russia and disregard of its harsh winters.

Napoleon I’s Grande Armée crossed into the Russian empire on 24 June 1812. It was in Moscow by mid-September 2012. The withdrawal from Moscow began in mid-October 2012. Napoleon I heard of an attempted coup in Paris in November 2012. He abandoned the Grande Armée in early December 2012 to return to Paris by sleigh. The Grande Armée left Russian territory on 14 December 2012.

Unless Russia was in the Southern Hemisphere in 1812, everything that Napoleon and his forces did took place during summer, autumn and early winter.

How to Think About Putin’s Russia” – Christopher Caldwell I was fascinated by this talk given about Putin by Christopher Caldwell. It’s starts off bad with Caldwell saying that Putin doesn’t have a lot of respect for the democratic processes and that a number of his opponents have been murdered, but, he adds, there is no evidence that Putin is behind them although that doesn’t mean it’s not significant. Caldwell then says how progressives around the world tend to dislike Putin as he’s not the sort of person who would head a pro feminist NGO, nor do we see him… Read more »

When are people finally going to distinguish between Russia and Putin? Many Russians don’t like Putin; they think he acts like a mafioso at home. Liking Putin solely because he is anti Pentagon (not even anti 1%) is shortsighted.

Yes, Kavy, a very good lecture by someone who isn’t exactly interested in kissing Putin’s posterior. It features the kind of nuanced thinking which is normally missing from discussion of Putin/Russia.

Ten years ago ‘Time’ magazine featured Putin as statesman of the year for having put Russia back in order and kicked out the oligarchic robber-barons. Then we broke the Berlin Wall agreement and moved NATO hardware up to the gates of Moscow and Petersburg. Then we fomented a coup in Kiev because they didn’t want to join the EU/NATO. So the three historical capitals of Russia are now threatened by American invasion. Then Kiev threatened its Russian minority (Crimea) and they broke away, back to Russia. So, with American connivance, Kiev shot down (murdered) 238 innocent airline passengers and tried… Read more »

Agree with your summation. And would add that the Kiev Coup was fomented by the CIA [aka John Brennan] and MI6 [aka Dearlove and Steele] the Skripal affair. None of these, including their media assets, are democratically accountable.
