Russia's Still Leftist
In response to Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s, somewhat tacky yet historically normal comment upon Russia and the rest of the Collective Security Treaty Organization sending troops into Kazakhstan, the Kremlin responded thusly:
If Antony Blinken loves history lessons so much, then he should take the following into account: when Americans are in your house, it can be difficult to stay alive and not be robbed or raped.
We are taught this not only by the recent past but by all 300 years of American statehood.
Now firstly, this is the normal sequence of snarky, belittling comment followed by an escalating-within-the-theme response that is the hallmark of US-Russian dialog. As such, it’s barely worth noting and I would completely ignore it if it didn’t provide strong evidence that Russia is still Leftist to this day.
If It Rants Like A Leftist…
This is the only thing I find interesting about Russia’s response to Blinken’s baiting. It is nothing more than a suaver and more intelligently worded version of the anti-American rantings that we’ve been peppered with the Leftists inside America’s borders for over half a century.
I guess it just goes to show that while their State Socialism was ended during President Reagan’s tenure, Russia is still Leftist in the ways that really matter to us Americans.
