The pro-Putin duo of Sugar and Mike, er, the “Editorial Board” of The Anti-New York Times have mixed feelings about the annual “Victory Day” spectacle held in Moscow each year — an event which Putin has raised to new levels of emotional intensity. From the article:
“In his 17 years as the leader of Russia, Mr. Putin has gradually made Victory Day the most important holiday of the year, tying his presidency to the national unity, sacrifice and centralized authority required to defeat Nazi Germany.
“The lessons of the past war call on us to be vigilant, and the Russian armed forces are ready to counter any potential aggression,” Mr. Putin said, after some 10,000 troops paraded and 114 pieces of equipment — by official count — rumbled across the cobblestones of Red Square.”
An impressive show of power and patriotism — all based on deeply entrenched national mythology.
We fully understand and appreciate how essential it is for Russian leaders to not only prepare their people for the potential of conflict with the Axis of Evil, but also to send a clear message to those who would destroy Russia: “Don’t mess with Mother Russia, Amerikanski!” Factor in the reality that old myths die hard and “Victory Day” becomes a hard-to-kill legend that no Russian leader would dare to debunk or deemphasise.
Nonetheless, as much as we absolutely love watching that sea of disciplined White bad-asses goose-stepping through Red Square with lots of tanks and missiles behind them, your compulsive truth-tellers here are compelled to respectfully set Putin the Good straight as the truth about “Victory Day.”
From the Article: The parade marked the 72nd anniversary of the defeat of the Nazis in World War II, during which the Soviet Union lost more than 20 million people.
Analysis: The “20 million dead” is to Soviet / Russian mythology what the “6 million dead” is to Jewish mythology. It is a number pulled out of thin air and accepted by “historians” without any critical analysis whatsoever. Not only is there no way of independently verifying Stalin’s claim of having lost “20 million” (an obscenely exaggerated number which gave Stalin the pretext for keeping all of eastern Europe after the war, for “self-defense”) — but no mention is ever made of the fact that millions of Soviet soldiers taken prisoner, and millions more Soviet citizens who had fled westward with the retreating Germans, were classified as traitors and killed or gulaged after the war. Stalin and his henchmen are to blame for those dead and missing, not Hitler!
From the Article: Victory Day military parades in major Russian cities are followed by marches of ordinary citizens carrying pictures of relatives who fought in the war. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, take part in the tribute to the “Immortal Regiment.”
Analysis: It is tragically ironic that many of those pictures are surely of Russian Prisoners-of-War condemned as traitors and killed by Stalinafter the war ended. The relatives of these murdered men were probably never told of the true circumstances surrounding their death or disappearance.
How many of the “Immortal Regiment” that Russians honor with framed pictures were actually murdered by Stalin after the war? The book, “Operation Keelhaul” tells the gut-churning story of how US and British forces violently rounded up Russian refugees and POWs for forced repatriation to Stalin’s NKVD mass killers.
From the Article: “There was not, there is not and there will never be a power that could defeat our people,” Mr. Putin said at the main parade …
Analysis: Actually, the Germans did indeed defeat the Soviets. It was the massive transfer of war materials from FDR’s “Lend Lease” scheme, the opening of 2nd and 3rd fronts (south and west), and the merciless aerial bombardment of German cities that relieved the stress upon the Soviet Union and allowed them to recover and back into the game.
From the Putin’s Address (RT News): “This horrible tragedy could not be prevented due to the connivance of the criminal ideology of racial supremacy and due to the disunity of the world’s leading countries which allowed the Nazis to appropriate the right to decide the destinies of other peoples, unleash the cruelest and bloodiest war, enslave and make almost all European countries serve their deadly goals.”
Analysis: It would be redundant to tell regular readers of The Anti-New York Times that the preceding statement represents a complete inversion of reality that breaks the bullshit meter. But with regard to the German-Soviet/Russian element of World War II, let us quote the undeniable truth of The Great One, spoken before the German nation on the day that the German-Soviet war began:
“Moscow not only broke our treaty of friendship, but betrayed it! They did all this while the powers in the Kremlin, to the very last minute, hypocritically attempted to favor peace and friendship, just as they had with Finland or Romania. I was forced by circumstances to keep silent in the past. Now the moment has come when further silence would be not only a sin, but a crime against the German people, against all Europe.
Today, about 160 Russian divisions stand at our border. There have been steady border violations for weeks, and not only on our border, but in the far north, and also in Rumania. Russian pilots make a habit of ignoring the border, perhaps to show us that they already feel as if they are in control. During the night of 17-18 June, Russian patrols again crossed the German border and could only be repelled after a long battle. Now the hour has come when it is necessary to respond to his plot by Jewish-Anglo-Saxon warmongers and the Jewish rulers of Moscow’s Bolshevist headquarters.
German people! At this moment, an attack unprecedented in the history of the world in its extent and size has begun. With Finnish comrades, the victors of Narvik stand by the Arctic Sea. German divisions, under the command of the conqueror of Norway, together with the heroes of Finland’s freedom and their marshal, defend Finnish soil. On the Eastern Front, German formations extend from East Prussia to the Carpathians. From the banks of the Pruth River, from the lower Danube to the Black Sea, German and Romanian soldiers are united under state leader Antonescu.
The purpose of this front is no longer the protection of the individual nations, but rather the safety of Europe, and therefore the salvation of everyone. I have therefore decided today once again to put the fate of Germany and the future of the German Reich and our people in the hands of our soldiers. May God help us in this battle.”
The beast Stalin had already invaded Poland, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, and Romania, before Germany’s preemptive invasion saved the rest of Europe.
In a subsequent speech, The Great One further detailed the truth about the Soviet build-up:
“Already in 1940 it became increasingly clear from month to month that the plans of the men in the Kremlin were aimed at the domination, and thus the destruction, of all of Europe. I have already told the nation of the build-up of Soviet military power in the East during a period when Germany had only a few divisions in the provinces bordering Soviet Russia. Only a blind person could fail to see that a military build-up of world-historical dimensions was being carried out. And this was not in order to protect something that was being threatened, but rather to attack that which seemed incapable of defense … I may say this today: If the wave of more than 20,000 tanks, hundreds of divisions, tens of thousands of artillery pieces, along with more than 10,000 airplanes, had not been kept from being set into motion against the Reich, Europe would have been lost.”
The Great One knew what the Soviet-British scheme in the east was. Millions of Soviet troops were quickly taken prisoner because they were packed along the front line, in OFFENSIVE positions. The Germans then advanced easily across undefended territory. There was so little defense behind the front lines because Stalin was planning an invasion of eastern Europe, NOT a defense of Russia. After the war, the prisoners shown above would be condemned to death in Stalin’s gulags. Stalin declared: “There are no prisoners of war, just traitors.” The great sacrifice of Germany and the 500,000 foreign SS Waffen volunteers prevented Stalin from taking ALL of Europe.
Mr. Putin, we really hate to rain on your “Victory Day” parade, and we suspect that you also know that the underlying theme of it is all a fairy tale. Nonetheless, we understand, that in the face of the Globalist menace, you must keep the flame of patriotism burning hot, while keeping the CIA’s fake “Nazis” of Russia under control and surveillance at all times. What a pity that the sheeple of Russia cannot see that the Globalist-Bolshevik force which schemes ceaselessly to conquer Russia today, was the very same demonic power which destroyed and enslaved Germany yesterday. How ironic!
