So a couple of months back, the publisher and developer of the “Call of Duty” US military propaganda video game franchise Activision/Infinity Ward were pushing the Black Lives Matter like any other good Woke Capitalist.

But it seems the children have now had their fun, and – as in the UK, where the authorities suddenly went cold on BLM the moment they started questioning when they started becoming too intersectional with Palestinians and the like – they are now being quietly put out to grass by their former corporate champions, with their matchmaking platforms now reportedly censoring mentions of BLM and ACAB (All Cops are Bastards).

> tfw you outlive your usefulness

Now they have gone into outright Red-baiting mode, airing the famous interview with failed Soviet journalist Yuri Bezmenov and idol of the American conservative right in the trailer to the next Call of Duty game.

“Know your history, or be doomed to repeat it,” proclaims IGN, provoking a furious war between Chapos and chuds in the comments.

Well, it is useful to know history.

For instance, the fact that Based Bezmenov’s main beef with the Soviet was that it was “racist” and wouldn’t let him race mix with Indians:

I did not want to marry a fat, white Russian girl. I wanted to marry a slender, dark Indian girl.

I wish I could explain it to your freedom fighters in the United States, who blame America for being racist. It is my country, under Soviet socialism, which is the most racist system in the world. By law in USSR, I was not allowed to marry a foreign girl, and–Marx forbid!–to make love to her, because the Communist Party has control on my genes and chromosomes. I was not allowed to marry into an ‘inferior race,’ and this is something that I have desperately tried to explain to your civil rights activists who blame America.

He was also a fraud who was never actually part of the KGB and who was let go from a range of Western intelligence and journalistic jobs. In other words, the perfect representative of Cuckservatism Inc.

And, come to think of it, also the perfect champion of neoliberalism.txt in the West, synthesizing as he does the following narratives:

  • It’s the Russians who are the real racists!
  • Americans did nothing wrong.
  • Any suggestions to the contrary are Russian active measures and dezinformatsiya!

And, most importantly, the IQ chuds and Magats who constitute the Trump base can be relied upon to lap all this up, in a way that they wouldn’t coming from Rachel Maddow or even the senile neocon boomers at the Lincoln Project.

Dysfunctional or not as American society as a whole might be, but its propaganda apparatus still has game, it needs to be acknowledged.

    If Bezmenov was so against marrying a "fat white woman" he should have just asked his bosses to get him an Central Asian lady.

    Obviously, given the times and his work he was not free to marry whomever, but free marriage is a very modern concept and an aberration from a historical perspective.

    His complaint is retarded, what kind of question is this?

    Refusing his request to sanction a mail order Subcontinental bride ranks up there with banning Fortnite for all time government atrocities, who cares? He even himself characterised it as a selfish whim "I wanted an exotic novelty, not a fat broad!" He didn't even use the facile trope of the repressive government getting in the way of his "One True Love!"

    If Bezmenov was really so obssessed with Indian girls, he could easily find Indian looking citizen of Soviet Union and there would be no problems. USSR had people of all races, even few blacks in Abkhazia, and "interracial" marriages were never banned or discouraged.

Conservatards are drawn to the Soviet dissident for tiresome reasons. There’s little connection between the Soviet Union’s socialism (focused on industrial, technical and artistic accomplishment) and the Anglosphere’s Oligarch-controlled fake antiwhite Bioleninism. American conservatives are just really dull, unimaginative козы, and lap this retarded distraction up. If only our fate were to become the Soviet Union, instead of something like a gay, higher income South Africa/China hybrid.

  46. A lot of people here seem to forget that the soviet union was around for a long time. The initial bolshivism really was a nightmare. They had looting of resources, destruction of churches, deathsquads, etc.

    Over time it turned from somethint really crazy into something oppressive but stable.

    It is conceivable to me that bezmenov really did understand how communism spreads and how horrible it can be.

    If you asked an american dissident to talk about democracy they could probably tell you something just as bad as what bezmenov revealed. He would tell you about human rights ngos and peaceful protests and color revolutions. Then after democracy gets installed you are left with homomania, negro worship, race replacement, drug addiction, crime that is not prosecuted, and corruption on par with africa.

    I dont buy 100 percent that bezmenov was a simple grifter because was a marginal character that only got a small amount of recognition from the john birtch society that was focused on pushing skepticism of communism without talking about jews.

    One probable reason why they stopped was that by that time the welfare-funded Brit underclass was expanding and an increasing proportion of the fans would themselves be bastards - not true in the 70s or before.

    I dont mean that bastardy should be an unsurmountable obstacle in ones life, but still never should the king be a bastard, for it often suggests that her mother has moral shortcomings, which could have affected the upbringing of her offspring, also presidents like kings are the symbols of the nation. What kind of message that sends to the womenfolk? Be loose and it does not affect the success of your children.

    As always we lack of the Aristotelian Golden mean or Buddha's middle path, in old times bastardy was a huge sign of shame and great source of misfortune for illegitimate children, a bit too much in my opinion, but now society believes in other extreme, that it doesn't matter at all. Same thing has occured with societys treatment of lgbt people, or pandikas like they are called in the Buddhist texts.

    He may have been, I don't know enough about the specifics of the rules then to tell (and based on his life afterwards he probably defected due to his general ethos rather than due to a particular issue) but I don't think Bezmenov and Dimitrov's circumstances are that similar (an adopted child vs a wife meant to tie workers down/prevent them from going native - so I don't think we can conclude that Bezmenov lied because of Dimitrov's situation.

    If anything, Boris Johnson is fulfilling the millennium-old moral traditions of the British. Before he was the Conqueror, William was the Bastard. And English kings for centuries had litters of Fitzroys running around. Siring bastards has always been common among men of high status and low piety.

    Dropping nukes on Japan was pretty legitimate, it had a functioning military on the home islands, and Americans were not obligated to sacrifice 100,000's of their soldiers' lives. It would also have probably resulted in much higher eventual Japanese casualties.

    That said, I do increasingly agree that such points should only be made in purely historical discussions, not ideological ones with the demented neocon scum who insist on popping up here.

    Still I dont see much wrong in King having multiple wives, it will ensure a larger pool of suitable candidates for kingship and bring stability for the kingdom. Although its admirable that Christianity tried to enforce the same standards of morality for everyone, no matter what position one occupied, but its not very pragmatic. At least the Christian model of succession was not as horrific and monstrous as the model often employed by Muslims and especially by the Ottomans. Where the successful claimant to the throne will kill all his brothers and often their children too. Where all thousands of concubines and eunuchs are constantly occupied with intrigue plots and assasinations, so that their son or preferred candidate will be the next Padishah of the Empire. I have never watched those Turkish historical dramas, that are so popular nowadays in the Middle East, but I have heard that the Byzantines are always shown to be corrupt and degenerate in those shows, compared to the gallant and pious Ottomans.

    Most of the most prominent Klephts were of Greek ethnic origin. They could not have been of Aromanian or Slavic origin as Klephtouria (the culture of the Klephts) was primarily concentrated in the Peloponnese where there were few Aromanians and Slav-speakers. Regarding Albanians, perhaps you are referring to the Arvanites of Souli. The origins of the Arvanites is obscure but they were definitely Orthodox and bilingual on the eve of the Revolution. They were also very strong supporters of Greek liberty. The Souliotes were not considered Klephts and their home was in Epiros not the Peloponnese.

    "Do you know what the illegitimacy rate is? IIRC, 78%. Latin America is fucked." - This is because of low divorce rate. Many children are born to couples who are reluctant to get married but among which many will eventually get married. Chile has 3% of divorce rate while Russia has 51% divorce rate. So what is a bigger problem: children born to unmarried but functioning couples or children abandoned by one of the parent because of easy divorce?

    "I’m not for a loose definition of who is white." - One drop of blood rule lead to creating anti-white population while having gradation of mixtures like in Brazil creates non binary spectrum where some non-white segments are not necessarily anti-white because of the lack of the single drop of blood rule.

    I dont mean that bastardy should be an unsurmountable obstacle in ones life, but still never should the king be a bastard, for it often suggests that her mother has moral shortcomings, which could have affected the upbringing of her offspring, also presidents like kings are the symbols of the nation. What kind of message that sends to the womenfolk? Be loose and it does not affect the success of your children.

    As always we lack of the Aristotelian Golden mean or Buddha’s middle path, in old times bastardy was a huge sign of shame and great source of misfortune for illegitimate children, a bit too much in my opinion, but now society believes in other extreme, that it doesn’t matter at all. Same thing has occured with societys treatment of lgbt people, or pandikas like they are called in the Buddhist texts. Although Christianity is historically probably the most friendly or accepting religion towards homosexuals.

    I wonder what percentage of defectors were gay. There were probably efforts to filter them from foreign stays, due to the threat of blackmail, but otherwise I would expect they’d be overrepresented, since the West was much more lax, as a society, in that regard.

    I'm sure that there were some, but generally homosexuals don't comprise more that 1% of the general population, so I don't think that they were much overrepresented in those that defected...

    In the nineties, when more and more former ex-Soviet citizens were applying for US citizenship or green card status, a lot were claiming that they were Jewish and had experienced discrimination back home (even if they weren't and hadn't). US immigration personnel were starting to hear too many of the same old stories from too many applicants and were becoming less and less sympathetic to their pleas for asylum. Some, decided to change their stories and claim that they were gay, hoping that their requests would be given a more sympathetic hearing. I have no idea what new stories and identities are being used today?...

    Homosexuals were also much more likely to be estranged from their families. The big limit to defection is the unwillingness of most people to leave their relatives behind and potentially never talk to them again.

    Some months ago, I saw a strange ad for an NGO that seemed to be primarily concerned with importing gays from the third world to metro areas in Canada. Even given the political power that gays have, I thought it really odd at the time. Some of them obviously had HIV.

    I also wondered whether our society is so corrupt that gays could be grooming people from the third world, in exchange for help immigrating.

    The same disintegration of millenium old morality can be seen in the UK. Boris Johnson's string of bastards and deceived wives and mistresses is completely ignored. It is a triumph of socialist morality.

    Replies: @Not Only Wrathful, @YetAnotherAnon, @songbird, @Pop Warner

    If anything, Boris Johnson is fulfilling the millennium-old moral traditions of the British. Before he was the Conqueror, William was the Bastard. And English kings for centuries had litters of Fitzroys running around. Siring bastards has always been common among men of high status and low piety.

    Well, he seems to unite both eras quite well, and then focuses on Bezmenov's original complaint within his "witty" observation. A clarification of the validity of Bezmenov's original complaint then seems quite in order?...

    Replies: @Athletic and Whitesplosive

    His complaint is retarded, what kind of question is this?

    Refusing his request to sanction a mail order Subcontinental bride ranks up there with banning Fortnite for all time government atrocities, who cares? He even himself characterised it as a selfish whim “I wanted an exotic novelty, not a fat broad!” He didn’t even use the facile trope of the repressive government getting in the way of his “One True Love!”

    For me the election of Obama was a proof of the complete death of classical/traditional European values among the masses, a literal negro bastard in the highest position of the west. Yes there were and still are right wingers who dont like his racial backroung, but it seems that for everybody his bastardy was not a problem. Literally no one even spoke about it. A true sign of our times. Some older members of the liberal establishment must have noticed the lack of talk on that issue and felt a great sense of joy, for their "progress" has truly become hegemonic or paramount in our era.

    Obama’s parents were married when he was born. His bastardy wasn’t spoken of because he wasn’t one.

    Poor utu - always seeking a black alliance against Jews and always burned, and pretending it is because whites need to try harder. I suppose you think Noah was an ally of whites in South Africa - you think that was why they hired him? Did you know his mother converted to Juadaism? But I guess you would still embrace her as an ally against Schlovo.

    FYI, "One drop rule" is just black pablum. Many words were in use to describe black gradations in the US, mulatto, even octoroon. They are words progs don't like, not racists. Next you'll be saying that Europeans invented "chattel slavery."

    Replies: @utu

    “Poor utu”– This is not about utu. This about your logic and quality of your arguments that I tried to point to in your comment that caught my attention. By switching to utu and your theories of what are utu’s intentions you do not escape crappiness of your ideas that you are unable to defend coherently.
