I’ve had David on the show twice before, following his travels to Korea and Palestine.
Today, we are going to talk about his recent trip to Russia. I am inured to Eurangloland’s blatant anti-Slavic racism and imperial propaganda against a country and its people that have been relentlessly attacked since the great schism between the Catholic and Orthodox Church 1,000 years ago (1054AD). I cut my adolescent teeth reading all the great Russian writers. My father was an expert in classical music, so I got to hear the full range of the Russian School. As a certified science teacher, I have always had a healthy respect for Russia’s extensive contributions to technology, invention and innovation. I traveled to Russia and the Caucasus in 1984, got to see the country and meet the people myself. In a nutshell, I know the West’s Big Lie Propaganda Machine (BLPM) against all things Russia is a load of hysterical bunk.
ABOVE: If this hommage doesn't grip your heart you know nothing about the history of the modern world and the sacrifices made by the Russian and other heroic peoples.
David and his Russian wife, Elena spent time in Moscow, Yalta, Crimea; Rostov-on-Don, Volgograd/Stalingrad, Kislovodsk, Caucasus; and Zelenograd, where she has a residence. Needless to say, their experiences are unique, compared to being passing through tourists, since they spent time with friends and family – normal, everyday Russians with the same dreams and concerns as the rest of us.
Here are quick links to the places they visited,
David kindly sent me a few of his trip photos, which you can enjoy here,
The battle against the Big Lie killing the world will not be won by you just reading this article. It will be won when you pass it on to at least 2 other people, requesting they do the same.
