Fellow Putinists, check in here.

Comrades:

Apparently, around these parts, not agreeing that Putin=Hitler makes one a Putinist. If so, I'm guilty.

I think that Putin is a bad actor.

I think that Russia's military incursion into Ukraine is wrong.

I think that non-military steps should be taken against Russia - just like what (Soviet puppet?) Eisenhower did in 1956 when tens of thousands of Russian troops invaded a restive Hungary and killed thousands.

But I don't think this is Europe in 1938. Or 1933. So I, Manny, am a Putinist.

Any other fellow Putinists out there? Or am I alone in my disgrace?

Regards,

Comrade Manny

49. Seriously, Manny! What's wrong with you?!?

You haven't:

* Blamed the entire situation on President Obama

* Waited for the Democratic party to come out with a position, so you can figure out what yours is (in reflexive opposition)

* Misstated any facts

I mean, the only thing you've done is misrepresent other people's opinions and created strawmen! (Pretending that war with Russia is popular on the D.U., and that there are those who are against thermonuclear war with Russia are being called "Putinistas".)

I mean, that's the only thing! Keep this up, and you might actually make an argument intended to persuade and isn't counterproductive!

Seriously, what's happening to First-way Manny?

I'm not sure how THAT got in there!

But the thread was on the "greatest page" because of all the rec's, so I didn't click on it INSIDE the Obama forum; I clicked on it from the "greatest"...not realizing that it originated in the Obama forum, and that I was breaking THEIR rules.

I NEVER would go into the Obama forum and terrorize those good folks....not on purpose.

35. Iosif Vissarionovich Stalin was born Ioseb Besarionis Dze Jugashvili, and was a Georgian.

 

His Minister of Internal Affairs (the secret police) was Lavrentiy Pavlovich Beria, also a Georgian.

So the Stalinist USSR was actually a Georgian Empire. Between them, they killed a vast number of Russians until Stalin died and Beria was shot for treason.

Putin is PUTIN and we had better learn to deal with that rather than trying to make analogies that may or may not apply from history. Learn from history? Yes! Absolutely! But we need to be smart here and deciding that Putin = Hitler or even that Putin = Stalin is not a smart way to proceed. I'd accept Putin ~ Hitler or Putin ~ Stalin but not the equality.

And certainly not said anyone failing to agree that Putin is Hitler makes them Putinists.

Those who blindly parrot Russian propaganda and attempt to delegitimize the protestors and new Ukrainian government are pretty close.

Those who openly provide excuses for why Putin's actions are justified are Putinists (though they are a very small group)

39. Fellow "Putinist" here. "Putin is a bad actor. Russia's military incursion is wrong. Non-military

steps should be taken against Russia."

By this definition, there are a lot of "Putinists" at DU.

I think it's more like Hungary in 1956.

50. Doesn't Russia have legitimate property/security claims to the Black Sea Fleet in Crimea?

I don't see that Russia has moved to annex all of Ukraine. It seems that have moved to secure their naval base property and ground access thereof.

Pardon the wapo link but there is an interesting (if a bit self serving) Q&A article:

Russian forces in Ukraine: What does the Black Sea Fleet in Crimea look like?

93. Careful...logical thought is not welcome in DU debates.

 

You have to have a black/white imperialist bent and keep common sense out of these matters.

55. actually I was talking

 

with russian friends familiar with the situation last evening and both she and he voiced concern about all the nuclear material that could fall into the wrong hands, both the ultra-nationalist(rightwing fascists) responsible for starting this mess. Yes america is backing the fascists, again. And Putin is worried about terrorists groups getting their hands on the nuclear material(suitcase nukes, ect)also, and both my friends stressed that this is probably the situation? Are they wrong? Not a big worry with all the madness, chaos, anarchy and mayhem going on now in the Ukraine?

64. I'd say your thoughts are on the situation are in line most the people here

at least from what I've seen.

There does seem to be two 'extreme' camps with limited followings though. One side that seems to think Russia should be bombed by the US/NATO for it because they think the world is a video game in which there are no real consequences. Then there are those who truly do seem to have a love for Putin and put the blame of everything taking place on the US/Obama/Europe, and view Russia as the great benevolent liberators. I don't think you or the majority of people fall into those camps, but rather somewhere in between and people are just too quick to jump on others for having slight differences in opinions. Which in turn leads to people assuming motivations and putting words into other people's mouths.

If only DU had a place where "Putinists" could gather ... a safe haven, of sorts, where a Putinist can get their Putin on.

Any thoughts, Manny?

72. I can't decide whether I like Putinist or Putinista better

 

And regarding Ukraine, to me its not a question of right or wrong, I simply think its none of our business. I'm guilty of not being a typical American who thinks the whole world is our personal property, and that we are in charge of whatever happens in it. Shocking, I know.

80. Papa Putin will teach you how to love, my Putinka. You sing him nice lesbian lullaby for me when

next you see him, da?



$50 billion and a rainbow ray
Rodnina and Kabayeva will pass you the torch
They'll teach you to submit and cry in the camps
Fireworks for the bosses. Hail, Duce!

Sochi is blocked, Olympus is under surveillance
Special forces, weapons, crowds of cops
FSB - argument, Interior Ministry - Argument
On [state-owned] Channel 1 - applause.

Putin will teach you to love the Motherland.

In Russia, the spring can come suddenly
Greetings to the Messiah in the form of a volley from
Aurora, the prosecutor is determined to be rude
He needs resistance, not pretty eyes

An bird cage for protest, vodka, nesting doll
Jail for the Bolotnaya [activists], drinks, caviar
The Constitution is in a noose, [environmental activist] Vitishko is in jail
Stability, food packets, fence, watch tower

Putin will teach you to love the Motherland

They will turn off Dozhd's broadcast
The gay parade has been sent to the outhouse
A two-point bathroom is the priority
The verdict for Russia is jail for six years
Putin will teach you to love the Motherland


Motherland
Motherland
Motherland


And sing nice hymn as well, da?

Virgin Mary, we beseech you...

84. Putinits don't think it's wrong to invade Crimea

Not think Putin is Hitler.

You know, like idiots asking "why" splitting up a country is bad.

Owning and re-framing the issue is a clever way to marginalize those who think it is an issue worth discussing, while remaining critical of the instigator Putin.

Putinists would dismiss anyone daring to be critical.

than I dislike the preznent to whom Putin suggested should change the law so that he could run [strike]the U.S. into the ground[/strike] again.
