27 September 2014. WTF! It’s Got to be Russia!

00 Dugin with Old Believers. 27.09.14

______________________________

This is A G Dugin, one of the chief ideologues of Eurasianism, in a remote settlement somewhere in the back of beyond of Russia. It looks like a bunch of Old Ritualists. Russia has its own ideology, it doesn’t need the West’s non-culture and hedonism. No thank you… we’re happy with our ways. The West REFUSES to see this… it hates us, in consequence (for if we were intelligent, we’d kiss their ass and tell them how brilliant and bright they are). People do things that they do for a reason, kids… we don’t hate the West and its people… simply put, their grasping ways and greedster ideology just don’t fit an Orthodox People (that’s why the konvertsy obsession with the Republican Party is so oxymoronic and obtuse)… that’s that. WTF! It HAS to be Russia… you can’t understand it with your mind, you can only accept it for what it is

18 August 2014. WTF! It’s Got to be Russia!

00 izba in Russia. 16.08.14

______________________________

The above is a real-life izba (Russian log house)… it’s not a museum exhibit. People actually live in it… and, let me tell ya, izbas are WARM n’ COSY in the wintertime… Russians do know a thing or two about cold. Why the colour? That’s simple… when snow covers the ground from November to March, it makes it easy to find home when it’s all white, the wind is biting despite wearing a quilted jacket and furs, and it’s -20 (-4 Fahrenheit) outside. People do things that they do for a reason, kids… WTF! It HAS to be Russia… you can’t understand it with your mind, you can only accept it for what it is

6 June 2014. WTF! It HAS to be Russia…

00 russian feast. 06.06.14

______________________________

It’s feast time! Sunday is Pentecost, the end of the Easter season. You’d best feast, for another Lent is coming up, which isn’t as long as the Easter Lent (it only goes until Peter and Paul), but that’s Orthodoxy for ya! WTF! It HAS to be Russia… you can’t understand it with your mind, you can only accept it for what it is
