Maria Zakharova strikes back at Russophobia

We all wish that people like Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman would make a difference in America. We all wish that they would tell the truth about what is happening in the Middle East. Instead, they all have made a conscious decision to ally with the Neocon war machine.

“Russophobia is the gift that keeps on giving.”

…by Jonas E. Alexis

 

Maria Zakharova, Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, has always been fearless when it comes to cutting New World Order agents to pieces. That’s certainly why many NWO agents are scared of her. You don’t mess with her.

We all wish that people like Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman would make a difference in America. We all wish that they would tell the truth about what is happening in the Middle East. Instead, they all have made a conscious decision to ally with the Neocon war machine.

Amy Siskind, “an American LGBT and women’s rights activist,” has recently tweeted that Russian insurance companies should not cover the life of Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States. She said: “Word to the wise for Russian insurance companies: don’t sell Kislyak life insurance.”

Siskin obviously didn’t realize that the Zakharova was listening. Zakharova, who has little patience with nonsense, responded:

“The intensity of Russophobia that has overwhelmed the United States. I do not even hope that Amy will ever learn about who Sergey Kislyak is and how much he personally has done to save Russian-American relations when the Obama administration announced its isolation crusade against Russia.

“But I very much hope that Amy will never learn what the American diplomats were doing, for example, in a number of countries in Latin America, the Middle East, and, of course, in Ukraine, otherwise, it can provoke a crisis of the American insurance system.”[1]

This is obviously a pointed rebuke, and one needn’t an astute observer to realize that there is indeed something called Russophobia among the Neoconservatives in the United States. Russian-born journalist Cathy Young has said:
Aside from a verbal commitment to liberal democracy and the rule of law, what can Western countries do to curb Russia’s anti-liberal influence without risking military conflict? Economic sanctions – particularly when they target the Russian political elite and its properties abroad, as opposed to targeting ordinary Russian consumers – can be more effective than they are often believed to be.”

Young is working for a “libertarian” magazine called Reason. This led one journalist to say:

“What’s up with a ‘libertarian’ magazine pushing economic sanctions? What happened to ‘free trade’ and untrammeled capitalism, supposedly the touchstones of the free market philosophy so energetically celebrated by Reason since its founding in 1969? Isn’t it odd that Reason opposes economic sanctions on Communist Cuba, but wants them slapped on Russia – which is just emerging from 70-some years of its Marxist nightmare? Perhaps one explanation is that the magazine is funded in large part by oil oligarch Charles Koch, of Koch Industries, who stands to make billions if Russian energy exports are blocked by government action.”

What we are seeing here is that Russophobia is everywhere, but true Americans aren’t really buying it. Russophobia is truly fake news.

    Mr. Alexis, given that you normally provide an excellent list of references I was a little surprised to see you didn’t credit the “one journalist” who you quoted. It was Justin Raimondo (a pseudonym) at Antiwar dot com. His fairly lengthy column on Cathy Young’s rabid Russophobia appeared just yesterday, July 10th. Raimondo does some of his best work when he tears apart the puffed up proponents of perpetual war. His column on Cathy Young’s Reason article is well worth reading in full.

    Ms. Young was born in Moscow as Ekaterina Yung (or Jung) which may provide a clue about her hatred of all things Russian.
