Is Putin’s Russia more repressive than Xi Jinping’s China?
Yet, Republicans rarely use “thug” when speaking about Xi.
Er…Xi is a Holy Oriental, a HBD God that walketh the Earth. Putin is just some dumb Slav. Come now, there’s a big difference! Even the GOP Establishment worships at the Altar of Asia, and why not? What’s the difference between a Derbyshire and a McCain, politically-wise?
Fine. How does Israel regard Putin “the thug” and Putin “the butcher”?
According to foreign policy scholar Stephen Sniegoski, when Putin first visited Israel in 2005, President Moshe Katsav hailed him as a “friend of Israel” and Ariel Sharon said he was “among brothers.”
In the last year alone, Bibi Netanyahu has gone to Moscow three times and Putin has visited Israel. The two get along wonderfully well.
Hey! That’s part of Putin’s “deep chess game!” He’s really an Alt-Right Traditionalist Anti-Semite, and don’t you ever think different!
Prayers, schmayers. More important: What was his cephalic index? Praetorian Guard, break out your calipers!
Cunning Trad Vlad fooling everyone!
The Russian President added that the situation of Russian Jews was currently the best of any place in Europe.
This would be far from the first time that Putin has made such comments at a Jewish gathering. In July of 2014 he thanked a gathering of prominent Israeli and European rabbis for what he categorized as their “help in Russia’s fight against the revival of Nazism.” In fact, Putin’s magnanimous offer was the latest gambit in the contentious leveraging of the issue of anti-Semitism in the continuing Russian-Ukrainian conflict.
Why, if we all didn’t know better, one would think that Putin was a pro-Jewish, anti-national socialist, anti-racist, multiculturalist.
But that couldn’t be right! After all, Der Movement worships his bare-chestedness, so it must all be part of that really, really, really deep chess game.
