Even better than a pure play United States post, however, is a tie-in featuring the two nations together, and that happens to be doubly possible at the present.
First, let us go to Alaska! Have you seen the great petition which has garnered almost 40,000 signatures on the White House petition site? Alaska back to Russia! Though credited to one S. V. of Anchorage, it appears it was really authored by Government Communication G2C, a Russian pro-Kremlin think tank with the aim of discrediting the White House's petition system. Nonetheless, I am thrilled that, in addition to the signatory typing now, it has resonated with thousands of other Americans fed up with our unfixable government.
Unfortunately, the signature flow has really slowed down of late, and I doubt it will gain the needed 60,000+ signatures needed for an official response by the April 20 deadline. Oh, if only Sarah Palin or some other leader from Conservatism Inc. would endorse it, we'd have the signature before daybreak!
One amusing thing to come out of the petition is this image of United Russia supporting penguins holding signs in support of Russia annexing Alaska. Many have pointed out that, no, there are really no penguins in Alaska and Russia. However, I have been watching Lupin the III, part II recently, and in episode 88 he entertainingly decided to helicopter in some penguins from Antarctica to impress h
is girlfriend Fujiko. With a feat like Lupin's, the scene CGI'd here could just come to pass!
Here in Massachusetts, which is to say Mordor, the Rev. Scott Lively, our finest, and hence most despised son, has been making headlines again. I first took notice of him again (he challenged Charles Baker in the Republican primary in 2010, which I covered here) shortly after St. Patrick's Day, a non-event in the life of this Catholic not inclined to attend daily Mass, but a major source of shame in western Massachusetts due to the Blarney Blowout at the nearby University of Massachusetts - Amherst. In Boston, meanwhile, the big story was the surprising resilience of the St. Patrick's Day Parade, which continues to refuse to let homosexual "pride" floats into the traditional, Catholic event despite an insane level of pressure, ratcheted up this year as always. Usual sponsors Sam Adams, Guinness, and Heineken even pulled out to please the degenerates, leading the Catholic League to urge a boycott this teetotaler wholeheartedly endorses. While Representative Stephen Lynch and State Rep. Nick Collins, both South Boston Democrats, marched in the parade, numerous Left-wing politicians refused to attend the event, including Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who launched into a curse-laden diatribe against organizers the week before, and all the gubernatorial candidates, save Scott Lively, seen here with his running mate, who according to Lively's website is an "Inner-City Social Justice Advocate". Dear fellow conservatives, who perennially clamor for a Black conservative leader to vote for to prove their embrace of "diversity", this is your time to shine!
In liberal democracies, voters, and more so non-voters, love to harp about their lack of a real choice (for my favorite example of this, see this uninspired yet irrepeatable YouTube video, The Big Mac). When, from time to time, they are presented with a real choice, with something other than the tired depravity favored by the establishment (this LifeSiteNews article on the 2011 Toronto gay pride parade is a good example; the parade was supported by all levels of government, save Mayor Rob Ford, who broke with tradition by refusing to attend and was mocked by many marchers: I suspect this is the reason the media was so unforgiving about his drug abuse), they denounce the alternative as HATE. With Scott Lively running for Governor of Massachusetts, we Bay Staters, like the inhabitants of Toronto, have a choice too, which I fully expect us to squander because of the squawking from the press and the sodomite lobby.
a stunning appearance at the Massachusetts "LGBTQ" issues debate organized by MassEquality. As the two Republican contenders failed to show (I doubt this can be interpreted as disagreement with the host's ideals, given the sorry state of the Grand Old Party in the Commonwealth), it was just Lively with Democrats and fellow Independents, all babbling the same lobotomized rhetoric about equality and the need for ever more social programming (in the absence of which "acceptance" of the homosexual lifestyle would end as mores returned to nature). Mmm, but hear some of Lively's remarks during the debate! He is seen here with a reporter; after the show was done they apparently flocked all around him.
Despite the usual liberal interruptions in the hostile hall, Lively somehow managed to make his point. Here's where Russia comes in.
… sexual conduct is not morally neutral -- and has serious public health, sociological, moral implications. It's perfectly rational and reasonable to exercise discrimination on those grounds… I think transgenderism is clearly self-evidently dysfunctional and this it is simply insanity for our society to be embracing it as a normal variant of human sexuality. We should be helping people to overcome this and not encourage those who persist in the delusion.
Have you, my good-natured reader, ever heard a politician speak the Truth so boldly? He is in a "debate" whose purpose was to make every candidate in attendance belt out the Big Lie, and he says it clear as spring water: "Transgenderism" is a "delusion". (How liberals manage to believe transsexuality is natural when you are born into your sex, while homosexuals can be "born this way", I will never know).
If you love Russia, you'll LOVE Lively.
As governor I would ban LGBT propaganda to children. This is a law that I advocated for in Russia. They have found it to be successful for their society. There remains no objective proof that homosexuality is innate and unchangeable despite decades of effort which means that it is an acquired condition. We must assume that that's true and if that assumption is true, then it is extraordinarily irresponsible to be treating our children as guinea pigs in a massive social experiment. They should be protected from the promotion of homosexuality as good, normal alternative choice for themselves.
A little-known fact, but true. In addition to campaigning in Uganda, for which he is the defendant in a spurious "human rights" lawsuit, Lively actually spoke across Russia, encouraging them to adopt the law they so wisely approved last year, earning the everlasting hatred of the queer-owned West. While Lively retains a residual, "patriotic" (sorry for the endless scare quotes, but the way our language has become tainted is unworkable) bias for the United States and its Christian culture versus pre-Revolutionary Europe's, he amusingly explained in a WorldNetDaily piece last month
Let me be clear from the outset that in my view the United States of America remains the gold standard for human rights in the world, and Russia remains an autocratic state with many lingering and greatly disturbing Soviet-era tendencies. On a scale of 0-100, with 100 being the best, the United States is in the high 70s while the Russian Federation is in the mid-50s. The problem is that the United States is rapidly trending downward from a high in the 90s, while Russia has been steadily trending upward from a low in the 30s. [!]
And he himself helped Russia on its ascent, and observes in the linked article that even the politics of the Ukraine crisis were dominated by Russophobia spawned by its rejection of homosexual propaganda.
Who could ask for a better governor? Scott Lively for Governor 2014!
On the more kawaii side of things, have you heard about Natalia Poklonskaya, the Attorney General of Crimea? You can imagine how happy I was to learn that a strongwomen working for Putin is an ongoing sensation among otakus! Proving, as if proof were needed, that anime is an essential in a geopolitical education!
