Putin plays all sides when it suits him.

While sometimes that tactic has short term benefits, it can also bite you long term.

But most Putinboos really claim Putin is some holy man fighting for the good of the right, not just a temporary ally of convenience.


Alliances of the present address the needs of the present. The Allies sent the USSR tons of military aid during WWII, knowing full well that a conflict with the Soviets was possible or even likely.

Certainly isn’t something Putin seems to understand. What with him allowing China to buy up Russian industry out of an irrational fear of NATO.

Sure the rank and file often believe such nonsense.
But here it looks like the leadership was just looking for that sweet cash.

Of course Putin is no one’s friend.
He seeks to weaken and divide Europe, obviously.
Not lead so white Christians crusade against the Muslims and Jews and any of that silliness.

Hence why he also supports with the far left.
Putin is an amoral fundamentally dishonest sleaze of course.


No even the Leadership sometimes believes that apparently. If anything the video proves that they're not the smartest guns in da house.

Putin seeks to weaken european liberal democracies because he knows liberal elites will never truly accept him and have repeatedly sponsored "color revolutions". 2014 Euromaidan was the last straw that convinced him to go into the counter offensive, and initiating active measures.

Thats actually very understandable from Putins perspective. For him the right wing populists are just useful idiots though.

Heinz-Christian Strache, the head of Austria's right-wing populist FPÖ party, met with a purported Russian multimillionaire on Ibiza in July 2017. She offered him campaign support in exchange for public contracts. What he didn't know was that the entire exchange was being recorded by hidden cameras.


Good riddance, obviously. Why is it always the a nationalists that get involved in these sell-out deals with foreign interests?

What do you think? Horribly unfair setup? Or a sign that populism brings with it a degradation of social and governmental infrastructure that risks dragging developed countries away from that status?


Yeah except Globalist politcians whole existance is about selling out, the difference is that it's expected for them too. There isn't a mainstream politician that wins elections that isn't patronized by some rich benefactor. The fact that your trying to frame this as some unqiue thing either showcases your naivetay or insincerity.

Unsurprising; the Far-Right is and has always been an ideological plague. It is parasitically reactionary and as such will always be it's own worst enemy.

Wrong, nearly all forms of fascism (Sans Integralism if you can even count it) have been to some degree opposed to the right wing. Hence "fascism" being more correctly referred to as the Third Position, in a similar way to how Dugin's political theory can be referred to as the Fourth Position.

This is untrue. Reactionary thought is regressive; it advocates the return to a romanticized past, which is why it is intertwined with Conservatism and Traditionalism - two philosophies that staunchly oppose any radical or fundamental change in society and instead prefer to either maintain the status quo or undo progressive policies.

Fascism is Futurist; progressive by it's very nature. Fascism is not concerned with what was but what can be, just as most ideologies do - even ones that conflict with Fascism, such as Socialism, Communism, Anarchism, and Liberalism. The primary concern for Fascists such as myself is the creation of a better tomorrow, not the glorification of an idolized past. Calling Fascism "Reactionary" is tantamount to calling Communism "Individualist".

I'm sure that it's in Austria's interest for their top politicians to be in the pocket of Russian millionaires. Somehow.

That's because Russia will protect Austrian traditions, like Catholicism, and keep Germanic people safe from the Slavic hordes.

No, this is wrong. There is a difference between having pride in your nation's history and trying to relive it. The Fascist State does the former; Conservatives and Traditionalists do the latter.

I can see why you'd think that, but this is a common misunderstanding. Mussolini sought to create an Italian Empire - not to restore the Roman Empire. The Italian Empire was meant to be the continuation of Rome; not it's restoration. The same was true for Hitler and the Third Reich: he was not attempting to restore the old German Empire but instead build a new German Empire. This is why it was called the 'Third Reich'. The objective of both was historical continuity and the inheritance of national legacy, not the restoration of long-defunct states.

This is also true, but these ideologies, groups, and individuals get their Racialist ideals from Conservative/Traditionalist thought of the 19th and 20th centuries. This is why they are Reactionaries. Such ways of thinking were most prominent back then, especially in post-Great War Germany and pre-Civil Rights USA. In Germany these Racialist attitudes manifested in the form of National Socialism, which borrowed ideals from Italian Fascism.
