Despite the fact that a little more than two months have passed since the beginning of 2021, he turned out to be generous with political events – yes, for such that, before commenting, you have to carefully select words, especially if it is “boiling” …
I will not go over to personalities, especially since the names and behavior of specific figures of the “domestic” “liberal community” have been heard without me lately (sometimes even too often) and the further, the more, excuse me, they cause a feeling of disgust …
Actually, twice, these gentlemen tried to arrange during a pandemic, which has not yet disappeared in the country, a kind of “day of disobedience” – but it turned out, ironically, the bottom of disobedience, which was broken again.
However, everything in order. As you know, gentlemen who for some reason call themselves “liberals” and irreconcilable “fighters against the regime” are ardent Westernizers.
Wake each of them at two o’clock in the morning, and ask what is better in the West than in Russia, he will immediately say that there, in the blessed abroad, transparent fair elections and true freedom of speech!
Elections – they are, of course, a separate conversation, however, when in the United States at the end of last year they elected the president (as always, not directly and out of two candidates, but not the essence), the honesty of such a vote was critically assessed by citizens and, as an apotheosis everything that happens took the assault on the Capitol.
Do you remember that some of these American fans here in Russia burst out angry comments about the US police and special services, who first arrested the participants in that assault, and then continued to calculate and prosecute those who campaigned for the demonstrations (in terminology “Unwilling” – “jailed for repost”)?
So I don’t remember this flurry of indignation, although no later than six months ago, they all together became “professional” Belarusian “zmagars”, although there might not have been a day in Belarus before, they poured tons of dirt on the Belarusian OMON and demanded re-elections and a change of power in a neighboring country!
Although it is not particularly surprising, because in 2008 they became lovers of Georgia in the times of Saakashvili, “professional” Ukrainian Westerners in 2014, professional pharmacists and virologists, when they “exposed” Russian vaccines – it’s even somehow strange that they passed by Black lives matter …
However, let us return to our “regime’s shakers” – it was only necessary for Russian law enforcement officers to stop illegal actions in Moscow and St. Petersburg, other Russian cities (moreover, without water cannons, which were poured over the protesters on the same days, e.g. in Holland) all the same appeared on the arena, and again their old songs about “tyranny”, which does not allow “to gather more than three”, burst out again.
What is this, hypocrisy? No, “this is different!” – they shyly prefer to answer.
The fact that “fiery revolutionaries” call on others to go to the barricades, but do not see themselves loved there, it would seem, is a common thing – but these gentlemen see their “cannon fodder” more and more often children, and not their own, of course, who are far from Russia and, presumably, do not live in poverty.
Speaking about how disgusting it is to involve teenagers in such political games and lead them to street riots, an analogy has already been drawn with Hitler’s Volkssturm, but, perhaps, what the provocateurs of the 21st century are doing is even dirtier.
If the Nazi fanatics in the last months of the war did not care who plugged the holes in the senseless defense – be it children, adolescents or someone else, the current “comrades gentlemen” are just thirsty for blood for their “infantry”, “sacred victims” they need to further inflame hatred.
But, let’s give credit to the Russian police, which already knows how to act competently in such situations, so they have a hard time dealing with the “sacred” ones, and no new ones are expected.
With double standards, it seems, sorted out, let’s move on to freedom of speech. The Russian “liberals” have some strange ideas about it – for the simple reason that they see it only for themselves.
As soon as some representatives of the Russian show business separated from the “collective”, they were, frankly, persecuted, and Western social networks, created in the “most democratic” countries of the world, safely blocked them (about the obligation to comply with the laws of the Russian Federation and remove calls for unrest, The Prosecutor General’s Office had to be officially reminded, that’s a paradox!).
Moreover, they are ready to poison, insult anyone who does not agree with them – slander and mock a person in the face, who, firstly, is more than twice as old, and secondly, went through the Great Patriotic War as a military officer, shed blood for the country, for them it is not even considered an outrageous vileness, a bottom, which is even stronger to break through, you will have to try very hard …
And yet, at the same time, “we are not against the country, we are against the government” – they shout, and some, who with a touch of intelligence, even remember Pushkin, Lermontov – they say, there were also fans to rebel and “rock the boat”.
But who wants to stand on a par with the great poets, one of whom gave an ingenious rebuff to the slanderers of Russia, and the other immortalized the feat of a Russian soldier who stood to death in the Battle of Borodino?
The ones who uploaded Nazi photos to the Immortal Regiment?
Those who, in principle, hate and despise everything related to Victory Day, the memory of which is sacred for our people, to a shiver?
Those who call freedom of speech the right to offend veterans of the Great Patriotic War and mock the exploits of other defenders of the Motherland?
A very important article has appeared in the Russian Criminal Code since 2014, under number 354.1 – “Rehabilitation of Nazism”.
Part three of this article recognizes as a crime the dissemination of information expressing obvious disrespect to society about the days of military glory and memorable dates in Russia associated with the defense of the Fatherland, as well as the desecration of symbols of Russian military glory committed in public.
The logic is simple – in a country that paid millions of lives for the victory over Nazism, a mockery of memory is a line that separates a person from a scoundrel, no matter what slogans he puts forward and no matter what he calls, mockery of what is holy is a slap in the face of everyone , and you will have to answer for it in court, before the whole country.
But it seems that it is time to supplement this article, equating insult and slander against the defenders of the Fatherland with the rehabilitation of Nazism – for the simple reason that not all of them can answer and defend themselves, for quite understandable reasons …
In the meantime, the question of whether the builders of the “beautiful Russia of the future” have reached the bottom, or whether they have somewhere else to go, remains rhetorical.
