LR Welcomes her 2,000,000th Visit!

On March 17th, two weeks shy of its fourth birthday, this blog was pleased to welcome it’s 2,000,000th visit.  No Russia politics blog in world history has ever posted 2 million visits on a public counter, so this is a milestone not just for us but for Russia blogs in general.  We would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank all those who have supported our efforts with their visits, their publicity efforts, their invaluable comments and the their contribution of blog posts.  This milestone is as much their achievement as it is ours. And we would like to urge each one of you, as we challenge ourselves, to redouble our efforts, since the battle with neo-Soviet Russia is far from over.  Nonetheless, our impressive progress makes it clear that it is a battle we can win.

    Conga rats!!! If ignorance is bliss, you continue to make the world a less blissful place. But bliss is overrated. Keep up the good work.

  2. marc in calgary

    congratulations Kim.

  3. Ah yes Nikita what golden words of yours “But then again, who am I to tell you what to do ?”, remember it is far better for you to keep your ‘clapper’ shut and allow people to think that you are an idiot! rather then to open it and and dispel that doubt.

    Read the blog again soviet monkey to know its truthful message – but I seriously doubt whether you will be able to comprehend its message.

    History has proved time after time/over time that “the pen is mightier then the sword”. Hence I guess that’s why your idol Putler has had all these reporters murdered to silence them for ever.

  4. Congratulations La Russophobe on reaching this well earned milestone.

    I’m sure that there will be many, many more in the future!

    A german policeman killed a russian criminal,who emigrated to Germany from the russian satanic Empire! Congratulation for this heroic policeman

  12. 2000000’s visit is a BIG lie and propaganda of the stupid LR. Do you mean 20000’s visit?

    BTW, where is Kim Zigfeld on the photo? Is she the ugliest among the ladies?

    • It’s ironic that this imbecile’s comment appears directly to the left of our visitation counter, which is controlled by WordPress and untouchable by us. It clearly shows 1.7 million visits to date, combined with 300,000 from the public counter on our prior Google blog (which also had a public counter untouchable by us).

      One can see in these pathetic remarks the true nature of neo-Soviet scourge, as they differ little from the tactics of the failed USSR.

    • Archi Gulag, by your frequent visiting, you also contributed to this success. Not sure about comments but anyway your visits also counted. So keep visiting and help us to make this website more successful in ratings.

    • + 1000.

      As for me, “2 mln. visitors to LaRussophobe” sounds roughly like “100 millions of victims of Stalin’s repressions”. :)
      Not just lying, but silly lying — but who cares?

      LA RUSSOPHOBE

      As for us, you sound like a stupid, jealous little schoolboy with no achievements in life desperately sniping and smearing from the gutter. We pity you.

      • Not too clever are you trilirium,

        Public counters don’t lie about the number of visits to a site.

        Of course, considering you are the usual lying russophile its not really surprising you can’t understand honesty…..

  13. well done, congrats—-long may you run!

  14. F.O.&D. :-)

  15. Congrats! I respect you and love you.

  16. Dear La Russophobe, Yes, keep up your good work!
    One of the frequent attacking points against you, is the false claim that you…hate everything and everyone, ‘Russian’, etc.
    Of course, that is a total lie. If you did not respect and care about those Russians who are indeed good people, and what is good in Russian culture, why would you bother to expose what all is so very very wrong and vile with the present communist-hang-over gangster rule of Russia-?
    You DO care about and respect those heroic Russians who are fighting for their freedom, and to make their country a peaceful prosperous good neighbor to all the world.
    So, I say to you: never be disheartened by the vicous KGB agent provacatours who daily attack you here on your own blog. We see that they are lying fools, and mindless idiots.
    God bless your good work!…to save Russia!
    You are indeed, by telling the truth, the biggest FRIEND of Russia and Russians.
    Many Years! Mnogaya Leta!
    Russian Orthodox Reader Daniel

  17. Positive!

  18. “f you did not respect and care about those Russians who are indeed good people, and what is good in Russian culture, why would you bother to expose what all is so very very wrong and vile with the present communist-hang-over gangster rule of Russia-?”

    People who rule Russia today are everything except communists..
    Mnogaya leta,Veliki Oktyabr’!

    • Dear ‘Dino’,
      So, big difference!
      Yes, some say that now, in the ‘post-soviet- period’, that the official Communist Party, no longer is in charge in Russia, but rather that the (Communist) Secret Police, i.e. the KGB/FSB are.
      Is that the double-talk that you are suggesting?
      What baloney!
      It is the same nomenclature, super- wealthy communist ruling class, that still are running and ruining Russia.
      Who do you communists think that you are fooling?
      Communism in any and all forms, is the enemy of the human race. It is evil to the core.
      That system still enslaves the Russian land.

      • “Communism in any and all forms, is the enemy of the human race. It is evil to the core.
        That system still enslaves the Russian land”

        Classical ignorance.
        Soviet union never was communist,it was a SOCIALIST(USSR) country,while it’s communist party degenerated to autocratic gang in the 60’s

        • @”while it’s communist party degenerated to autocratic gang in the 60’s”

          What in the 1860’s?

          Guess what Dino(saur?), the Communist party was ALWAYS and autocratic bunch of murdering psychopaths.

          It didn’t help that it was dominated by Russians of course….


          • @”while it’s communist party degenerated to autocratic gang in the 60’s”
            What in the 1860’s?
            Guess what Dino(saur?), the Communist party was ALWAYS and autocratic bunch of murdering psychopaths.
            It didn’t help that it was dominated by Russians of course….

            It was,for start,dominated by Jews you ignorant.
            It was a vanguard party until Stalin’s aberrations and post-Stalin degenerations.
            Lenin’s KPSS was different than Brezhnev’s,in a good way

            • No, it was dominated by Russians, Jews were over represented, but still only a minority.

              As for “Stalin’s aberrations” more poppycock.

              Lenin was a mass murderer too, as were most of those who followed on from Stalin one might add.

              The only exception was Gorby.

              • How many White soldiers there were?
                How many bandits,reactionaries,traitor…
                Lenin’s red terror was an absolute necessity

                • Yes, Dino,

                  ‘Lenin’s red terror was an absolute necessity’ to do WHAT?

                  Here is the answer;

                  to create a ‘ communist paradise’ with slaughter houses all over the country, secret police spying and denouncing the innocent people, killing without any reason, keeping people starving so they wouldn’t have energy to fight for freedom – stupid Russians succeed 100% in creating the communist paradise – they should be proud of themselves!! The fact that Russians NEVER rebel against the own home-made killing machine tells as that they deserve it. An all it was done in the name of so called Russian empire which is desintegrating in front of our eyes – priceless!!!

                  • If you know what Communism is,you wouldn’t be talking such crap.
                    Communism is absolute freedom.
                    USSR was never a Communist society,you moron,it was a socialist country.
                    Lenin’s idea wasn’t the killing of “innocent people” but reactionary forces,profiteers,criminals etc…
                    If you aren’t so limited,you would know that famines happened periodically throughout Russian history.

              • Hahaha.Gorby was the biggest murdered of all of them.He’s directly responsible for Yetsin(around half of million Russians died because of his treacherous barbaric plunder of a once great state and establishment of a criminal state) and ethnic conflicts in Caucasus.
                Nikita Hruschov closed the GULAG and Brezhev,Andropov and others never reinstalled it.
                More people were killed in America on electric chairs than executed in Soviet Union…

                • Wrong little boy, no Soviet leader closed the Gulags until Gorby came to power.

                  As for “More people were killed in America on electric chairs than executed in Soviet Union”

                  Wrong again infant.

                  The KGB archives document fairly well the mass executions carried out right up until the 1970’s by the USSR.

                  A reasonable estimate (mid range) of people murdered by the Russian government is around 61,000,000 from 1917-1989.
                  Some were worked to death, some deliberately starved, but many were simply shot in the back of the head.

                  “Whether the actual democide is this low, or higher, the fact is that most of these people were intentionally, knowingly, killed on a continental scale. Of course, this begs the most probing questions. What actually happened? When? Why? How are we to understand this democide? I will try to specifically answer these questions in the following chapters. But the key to it all can be disclosed here: Marxism.

                  In November, 1917, Lenin led his small Bolshevik party in a very risky, but ultimately successful coup against the provisional, democratic socialist government of Aleksandr Kerensky. This was not just a seizure of power and change of leadership, but a revolutionary transformation in the very nature and world-view of governance. It was the creation of a unique reason-of-state; and the institution of an utterly cold-blooded, social engineering view of the state’s power over its people. This unparalleled, brand new

                  Bolshevik government married a fully, self-contained, secular philosophy of nature and the Good, to an initially shaky, but an eventually absolute, ahistorical political force–a melding of an idea and power. It was then and has been since, utopia empowered.14

                  The philosophy is an universal perspective, at once a theory about reality (dialectical materialism), about man in society (historical materialism); about the best society (communism); about an implementing public policy (a socialist dictatorship of the proletariat); and about political tactics (revolution, vanguard, party, etc.). And its praxis is to be absolute in scope, absolute in power, and absolute in technique. Quoting Lenin: “The scientific concept of dictatorship means nothing else but this: power without limit, resting directly upon force, restrained by no laws, absolutely unrestricted by rules.”15

                  In sum, with its theory, attendant “factual” explanation of the past and present human condition, and vision of a better society, this ideology provides both answers to the whys and wherefores of political and economic life, and more important, it provides solutions: it defines for the believer a way to peace and happiness, to equality and welfare, and to freedom from hunger, poverty, and exploitation.

                  The theoretical part of this communist ideology was first developed in the works of the 19th century philosopher and political-economist Karl Marx and his followers. Lenin, both a philosopher and a political revolutionary, added a political program and tactics. Lenin’s peculiar brand of communism became known as Bolshevism before and for decades after he successfully seized power in Russia; in our time the ideology is called Marxism, or more specifically, Marxism-Leninism to denote the revisions introduced by Lenin. Henceforth, I will simply refer to it as Marxism.

                  Marxism is thoroughly uncompromising. It knows the truth, absolutely; it absolutely knows the Good (communism) and the Evil (capitalism, feudalism); it absolutely knows the way (a socialist dictatorship of the proletariat). Once this ideology seized the authority and naked power of the Russian state–its army, police, courts, prisons–it moved to put its Marxist program into effect. And thus, the history of the Soviet Union since the Bolshevik coup has been simply this: a protracted, total, engineering application of state power to demolish and then rebuild all social institutions–to create on earth the Marxist utopia.

                  Since Marxists know the Truth, ideological opponents could only be gravely mistaken and therefore enemies of the people. Knowing the Way to Happiness, those who intentionally or unintentionally blocked the Way must be eliminated. Even at the level of tactics, even among those Marxists who had the correct Vision, no one could be allowed to differ; for even at this level, at least until Mikhail Gorbachev, there was only one Truth.

                  Absolute ideas plus the absolute power of the state could mean only one thing: the state and its monopoly of force was the instrument of “progress”, of Utopian change. Thus, the Red Army would be used to suppress resistance to taking private property (being a source of evil); a secret police force would be created to uncover enemies of the people, and to eliminate opponents. Law would become an instrument of terror and revolutionary change; court trials, if held, would be predetermined as the clergy of Marxism saw necessary. And all was permitted as a matter of course–governmental lies, deceit, robbery, beating, torture, and the murder of 61,911,000 people–all instrumental to the communist future.

                  Most important, in this ideology the living were to be sacrificed for the unborn. The living were objects, like mortar and bricks, lumber and nails, to be used, manipulated, piled on each other, to create the new social structure; personal interests and desires, pain or pleasure, were of little moment, insignificant in the light of the new world to be created.16 After all, how could one let, say, Ivan’s desire to till the land of his father, Mikhail’s to purchase better shoes, or Aleksandr’s to store food to preserve his family through the winter, stand in the way of the greater good of future generations? This ideological imperative can be seen in Lenin’s attitude toward the famine of 1891-2 on the Volga. As Russians, regardless of class and ideology, tried to help the victims, Lenin opposed such aid, arguing that famine would radicalize the masses. Said Lenin, “Psychologically, this talk of feeding the starving is nothing but an expression of the saccharine-sweet sentimentality so characteristic of our intelligentsia.”17

                  Ideology is the critical variable in Soviet democide. It explains how individual communists could beat, torture, and murder by the hundreds, and sleep well at night. Grim tasks, to be sure, but after all, they were working for the greater good. It explains how Soviet rulers, particularly Lenin and Stalin, could knowingly command the death of hundreds of thousands and, as in the case of the Ukrainian famine of 1932-33, millions. Read Solzhenitsyn on this:

                  Shakespeare’s evildoers stopped short at a dozen corpses. Because they had no ideology.
                  Ideology–that is what gives evildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and other’s eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors. That was how the agents of the Inquisition fortified their wills: by invoking Christianity; the conquerors of foreign lands by extoling the grandeur of their Motherland; the colonizers, by civilization; the Nazis, by race; and the Jacobins (early and late), by equality, brotherhood, and the happiness of future generations.

                  Thanks to ideology, the twentieth century was fated to experience evildoing on a scale calculated in the millions….

                  There was a rumor going the rounds between 1918 and 1920 that the Petrograd Cheka…did not shoot all those condemned to death but fed some of them alive to the animals in the city zoos. I do not know whether this is truth or calumny….But I wouldn’t set out to look for proof, either. Following the practice of the bluecaps, I would propose that they prove to us that this was impossible. How else could they get food for the zoos in those famine years? Take it away from the working class? Those enemies were going to die anyway, so why couldn’t their deaths support the zoo economy of the Republic and thereby assist our march into the future? Wasn’t it expedient?

                  That is the precise line the Shakespearean evildoer could not cross. But the evildoer with ideology does cross it and his eyes remain dry and clear.18

                  However, in human affairs, especially at the level of societies and nations, no ideology, religion, or policies are pure and simple. The practical articulation and implementation of Marxism has been swayed or refracted, hindered or aggravated, aided or abetted, by Russian tradition and racism; by Russian imperialism and chauvinism.

                  Moreover, communists have not been immune to the lust for power for its own sake. Surely, the cliches of power–power aggrandizes itself, power can only be limited by power, and absolute power corrupts absolutely–apply no less to Marxists than other rulers. Was the unleashing of the Red Terror by Lenin in 1919 mainly to assure his power and rule? Was it simply the traditional reflex of a Russian ruler to political opposition? Was the famine Stalin knowingly imposed on the Ukraine an attempt to assure Russian national dominance over the Ukraine? Was it due to Stalin’s fear that the assertive independence of Ukrainian communists would undermine his power? Doubtless such different factors played a role. But throughout this history, Marxism was mediating, channeling, directing: communism was the Good, the state (read ruler) must have and use absolute power to create this better world; any one or anything that actually or potentially hindered this power or future must be eliminated.

                  In this light, the macro history of Soviet democide makes sense, although individual policies or campaigns may appear inexplicable, like quotas for shooting “enemies of the people.” This history is long and complex, but if organized around the major ideological campaigns and events, can be divided into eight periods: Civil War, National Economic Policy, collectivization, Great Terror, pre-World War II, World War II, post-war and Stalin’s twilight, and post-Stalin. I will devote a chapter to each period and try to provide some understanding of what democide occurred and why.”

                  • Look here moron:
                    By the end of the 1950s, virtually all “corrective labor camps” were dissolved. Colonies, however, continued to exist. Officially the GULAG was liquidated by the MVD order 20 of January 25, 1960. (See also Foreign forced labor in the Soviet Union)

                    Your christian-conservative source is hilariously retarded.61 Million! See soviet censes and try to work the math, and you’ll see it’s absolutely impossible.
                    Give me the link to your “KGB ARCHIVE”
                    700 000 official executed,widely accepted number is 1-1,5 million.

                    • Excellent article Andrew, BUT, BUT, totally wasted on Dino, who drinks too much; much, much too much VINO, and consequently his brain is pickled to such a level that his reasoning faculty to differentiate between reality and fantasy (i.e. lying communist propaganda) is irreversibly damaged.

                      He lives in his own quaint world, a world that is totally devoid of any rationale and missing of any sane logic.

                      Andrew! you’d get more sense out of talking to a brick wall, then talking to this reality blind ruSSophobe. I mean look at his information source, which I’ll bet dates back to issue #1 of vol. #1 of Pravda (Russian word for ‘truth’) – where any sane and decent Russian citizen will tell you “you get anything but the truth!”

                      To vino brain dead Dino, the 10’s of millions that soviet communism murdered under his idols’ Lenin and/or Stalin, just did not happen – as by his warped logic just read the ‘truth’ as published in “PRAVDA”, or for that matter “Izvestia”, their bibles for disinformation (read lying propaganda).

                    • Dino will supply us with the wisdom of the soviet encyclopedia.

                      The transit death rate of Ukrainians in winter deportation to the gulags, in cattle cars, was reported as high as 50%.

                      The last prisoners sentenced according to the political paragraphs of the criminal code were quietly released in 1989. The exact number of Soviet citizens who went through the camp system will never be known, especially as key documentation was deliberately destroyed as the USSR was collapsing. Figures apparently compiled by the Gulag administration itself, and released by Soviet historians in 1989, show that a total of 10 million people were sent to the camps in the period from 1934 to 1947. The true figures remain unknown. Western estimates of the total number of deaths in the Gulag in the period from 1918 to 1956 range from 15 to 30 million.[5]

                    • Now little boy, look at the demographics of the USA for comparison, when you look at Russian/USSR demographics it is actually supporting the fact that mass murder took place.

                      This link: http://www.census.gov/population/estimates/nation/popclockest.txt

                      shows the population of the USA from July 1, 1900 as 76,094,000 and growing to 272,690,813 by July 1, 1999.

                      Meanwhile in Russia:

                      The 1897 Russian imperial census gives a Russian population of 83,933,567 while in 1989 the Russian population was 137,551,000, not exactly a stunning increase.

                      Try again little boy.

  19. Great picture, LR. Pink becomes you.

  20. The top Russian blog is bound to attract the lowest kind of adverse commentary. You just have to wade through it like in a barnyard in order to pick up on the good stuff. I have had responses to my comments that were valuable to me. “Wading through” is worth it.

  21. Glory be! Two million visits on LaRussophobe, but still no 20-cm fat Russian cock for Kim Zigfeld.

    • Looks like you’re obsessed with cocks. Either yours is too small or you dream about getting one yourself.

      People usually project on others what they want themselves…

  22. Congratulations from Germany Kim. Good work!

  23. Congratulations on your wonderful blog!

  24. Congratulations, LR! And thank you for telling it like it is!

    putin has to go! No to Sochi Olympics! Free Khodorkovsky!

  25. Congratulations and way to go! Keep up the great work!

    As they say in Ukraine – респект (respect)!!!

  26. Careful about removing short stuff Putin. It is easy to get something worse. Russia will always be bad. Maybe what they have now is the best possible for RUSSIANS.

    • Obviously you’re intentionally ignoring the Soviet society which was beyond anything NATO world has ever had.
      Russia deteriorated with Yeltsin,a capitalist agent,scum,and a criminal

      • Now Dumbo, do you mean the Soviet society, where even in the 1960’s & 70’s people died of diseases almost unknown in the west, where the agricultural system was so decrepit that the students had to spend their summer holidays doing compulsory “volunteering” to help bring in the harvest.

        The society where even today, those who grew up in it always want a bag to hide what they bought in the shops so the neighbors don’t see?

  27. Yes, Dino – communism is the best thing in the world! Shame that Soviet socialists watered it down in the 60s! Should have stayed the way true communists did it – Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Che Guevarra…

    You can move to North Korea or Zimbabwe and enjoy communism today… Just leave us reactionary forces,profiteers alone!
