Jonas Alexis, a prolific writer for the sleazy “alternative” media tabloid Veterans Today, continues his literary crusade to exalt Vladimir Putin as a warrior against “satanism” and the New World Order.
In a recent piece, Alexis fawns over some Putin comments, which he calls “a pointed rebuke to Satanism.”
Alexis interpreted Putin’s comments as a rebuke of pedophilia. He and other Putin sycophants tend to take at face value what Putin says, as opposed to what he does, because the latter shows a very different side to the Russian strongman less in line with the “traditionalist” persona he has constructed via strategic public statements and staged photo-ops.
Back in 2006, Putin was filmed making an extremely disconcerting pedophilic advance on a random young boy. Putin knelt down, grabbed the boy by his sides, rubbed him a bit, pulled him forward and then conspicuously lifted the boy’s shirt and kissed him on the stomach, before darting off.
To make matters worse, Putin attempted to explain the kiss when questioned by media, saying with weird pedophilic undertones:
He [the boy] seemed to me very independent, very serious, but at the same time a boy is always vulnerable. He was very sweet. I’ll be honest: I felt an urge to squeeze him like a kitten, and that led to the gesture that I made. There was nothing behind it really.
The incident prompted former FSB agent turned exiled dissident Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned with polonium-210 in London in 2006, to write a blog post accusing Putin of being a pedophile. Within that post Litvinenko charged that a video tape existed of Putin having sex with young boys, but that when Putin was appointed as FSB chief in 1998, he went about destroying all compromising materials on himself.
Of course, neither the kiss nor Litvinenko’s claims conclusively prove that Putin is an active child molester – solid proof of that will be hard to come by in a state where Putin rigidly controls the entire police and intelligence apparatus, as well as the corrupt courts and judiciary. But it is disturbing and suggestive of tendencies in that direction. Apologists have tried to dismiss the kiss as simply “friendly” playful fun, but have you ever seen another person kiss a child’s stomach in public who is not their own and who they had never even met before? A kiss on the forehead, maybe, but the stomach?
When I posted the Putin boy-kiss video on my YouTube channel, a volcanic eruption of righteous indignation came from triggered groupies and trolls, with one commenting: “I would love it [if] Vladimir Putin kissed my stomach.” Others threatened to unsubscribe and boycott my channel for daring to show Putin in an unfavourable light. This seems to be the general mentality of the groupies: deny, deflect, shirk and excuse anything that makes Putin look like less than the personification of all that is good and righteous.
Yet you’ll notice a stark difference in the response to a video I uploaded showing former American Vice President Joe Biden creepily fondling young children in public: the majority of the commenters offered unfettered condemnation of Biden as essentially a pedophile, with some even calling for his imprisonment or execution.
So, weird pedophilic behaviour on the part of a US politician is swiftly identified and condemned for what it is, but when Putin is caught engaging in similar strangeness, the opprobrium is directed at me for highlighting it while putrid rationalizations are made to excuse Putin’s behaviour.
Some might ponder why Putin would do that so publicly, almost like he was inviting negative publicity on himself. But it makes more sense when considering that Putin is a sociopath who gets a rush from flaunting his extreme power and untouchability in public. A 2005 incident where Putin purportedly stole the Super Bowl championship ring from NFL Patriots franchise owner Robert Kraft and then refused to give it back, has convinced some that Putin is also a kleptomaniac, a person who gets a high from stealing.
Putin’s political strategy has been cleverly crafted by his “political technologist” sidekick Vladislav Surkov, who has, through a house of mirrors type illusion, created a populist and traditionalist mythos around Putin, getting the Russian president to say things that would appeal to many different groups from Christian conservatives, to left-wing anti-imperialists to white nationalists, all designed to disorient opponents and throw off critics.
Hacks like Jonas Alexis, who use dubious and flawed arguments to bolster their hero worship narrative, knowingly write distorted propaganda for an essentially tabloid website whose own editor-in-chief confessed to deliberately printing mounds of disinformation. Even if Putin was genuine about everything he has said that hints at a traditionalist worldview, that doesn’t negate all of the skeletons lurking in his closet. Just because Hitler was correct in analyzing certain trends and negative influences on Germany in the 1920s and 1930s, it does not make him a saint whose moral transgressions should just be forgiven and overlooked.
Moreover, you could just as easily exalt Christian Zionists on the same basis. They likewise take traditionalist positions on things like gay marriage, homosexuality and transgenderism. Does that make them worthy of adulation and praise? I don’t hear the Putinists fawning to John Hagee or Pat Robertson. Why not?
Alexis has tried to depict Putin as a “moral” giant battling NWO “satanists,” ignoring all of the murder and intrigue that led to his criminal rise to power and his continued duplicity to maintain an iron-grip hold over Russia. So long as Putin makes some mealy-mouthed statements that are contrary to the more excessive leftist precepts dominant in some Western societies, all political evil will be forgiven.
