Medvedev the Marauder
Russia’s so-called “president” Dmitri Medvedev announced feverishly a few days ago that he was sending out a “Mercader” to deal with the “traitor” who exposed the Anna Chapman spy clan under deep cover in the United States. As a result of that scandal, of course, Russia was totally humiliated before the entire world. We offer further insights about the debacle in a post from the head of Agentura.ru in this very issue.
Medvedev was referring to “Ramón Mercader, the secret agent sent by Joseph Stalin to kill archrival Leon Trotsky with an ice pick.” That’s right, Medvedev was openly patterning himself after Josef Stalin, and bragging about it in public. Lest you think the world saw this as another silly Russian joke, the “traitor” was soon under FBI protection.
Well, that’s the very last nail that can be squeezed into the coffin that contains the scandalous lie that Dima Medvedev is some kind of liberal. This notion, absolutely ludicrous on its face from the beginning, was promulgated by those who would like to induce us to drop our guard on Russia. Medvedev was selected as a front man by Putin for this very reason — so he could try to get the West to lay off him long enough to finally consolidate his dictatorship and become “president for life” just like Leonid Brezhnev.
And there were any number of idiots and traitors among us who were willing to swallow this lie, and to repeat it. They urged us to “give Medvedev a chance” to carry through on his allegedly liberal background and rhetoric, and it was oh-so convenient with the milquetoast American Barack Obama was swept into the White House. Obama soon became Medvedev’s leading cheerleader, munching cheeseburgers with him in public and claiming that he was dividing the Kremlin by throwing his support towards liberalism.
What utterly dishonest rubbish. What Obama was actually doing was playing right into Putin’s hands. The recent virulent, barbaric assault on leading Russian journalist Oleg Kashin, to say nothing of murders of Russians like Alexander Litvinenko, proves without shadow of doubt that Medvedev is not just blowing smoke. And his willingness to openly invoke the Stalin era, no differently than Putin would have done, lays bare his malignant soul.
Not only is Medvedev not a liberal, he is not even a civilized man — much less a civilized president. Can you imagine the leader of any other large country openly bragging about dispatching a hit man? Is it really possible Medvedev does not comprehend the horrific consequences of openly declaring that Russia is a mafia state?
No nation so ruled can long survive. The USSR could not, neither can Russia.
UPDATE: Some idiots in the comments section, feverishly desperate to avoid the harsh consequences of this rhetoric, are attempting (without the slightest shred of proof) to claim that Medvedev did not actually make this comment himself, but rather is simply allowing it to be made by others. This missing-the-forest-for-the-trees insanity is so typical of the moronic mindset that has brought Russia to the brink of destruction. We are not aware of any public denial by anyone speaking on behalf of the Kremlin that an assassin has been sent to the US to take revenge for the Chapman revelations and that one will not be sent in the future. From Litvinenko to Yamadayev, the Kremlin’s willingness to commit murder on foreign soil is well known, of course.
