All it takes is one look at this picture to know why America cannot tolerate Russia. No wonder that great American patriot George H.W. Bush betook himself to Kiev when the Soviet Union was collapsing and, appearing on a balcony overlooking the Maiden, urged Ukrainians to stay in the Soviet Union.
Very different from the American policy now that Russia is no longer Communist.
And the history of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the site of this picture, a picture so wounding and offensive to the leadership of the USA shows how right George Herbert Walker Bush, former head of the CIA, was when he tried to save the Soviet Union.
Here is the full disgusting history (to Bush and others like him) of the church:
The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour was totally obliterated by the Bolsheviks.
The Communists would not allow the priests to take a single icon with them. Every single thing was destroyed. The gold was melted down – 20 tons of it. And to pour salt in the wounds, the non-Russians running the Soviet government earmarked every penny from the sale of the gold to the dispossession and extermination of the Kulaks, the most intelligent and industrious of the Russian peasants, the “Kulaks.”
A really nice dysgenic touch! And very much to the taste of the American establishment even way back then. The New York Times‘ reporter in the Soviet Union enthusiastically supported the collectivization and that newspaper informed us that the story of a famine in the Soviet Union was just a lie fabricated by reactionary anti-communists.
The fact that the Cathedral was dedicated to two Russian military heroes, one of whom was one of the greatest White racial heroes of all time, must have really incurred the wrath of the Bolsheviks. (St. Alexander Nevsky, who defeated the Teutonic Knights, and St. Dmitri Donskoy who defeated the Yellow Peril in the Battle of Kulikovo in 1380, breaking Russia free of the Mongol Yoke. The Russian Orthodox Church canonized both of these military leaders, something modern Xianity in America would never, never do.)
The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour was the first church rebuilt by the Russian Orthodox Church after the fall of the Soviet State and the Communist Party. In the midst of abject poverty and economic chaos one out of every ten citizens of Moscow donated to rebuild the Cathedral.
America cannot stand for such things.
America will not tolerate such actions. They are contrary to everything America stands for.
These people and their city need the Dresden medicine.
Moscow must be levelled and Russia destroyed.
Then Americans can be proud of their country and the values it stands for.
Once again, America will have saved civilization and protected freedom.
So sayeth the secular saints Eleanor Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Secretary of State Blinken and The New York Times…and they are authoritative in our national epistemology.
I walked through the restored Cathedral in a state of exaltation. I wish my Russian tutor who first told me the story of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior — when it had been converted into a swimming pool — could have lived to see it.
