2. A ban on the discussion of the lustration and crimes of the Cheka-NKVD-KGB.The absolute sanctity of this organization from the day of its founding to the present day;
3. Unremitting Judophobia;
4. Loyalty to the present authorities, the cult of Putin, stories about the economic and social prosperity of Russia under his leadership;
5. Promoting the Chechen war "down to the last Chechen". Stories of "perfidious Chechnya attacking poor Russia". Mythological tales of the "hundreds of thousands of Russians" killed by Chechens in the early 1990s, before the start of the first war. Two years ago they gave a figure of 20,000 Russians killed - today that figure is already a million;
6. Xenophobia, racism, justifying the actions of skinheads, and pogroms;
7. Savage hatred of deserters and traitors from the ranks of the KGB;
8. Anti-Americanism and anti-Westernism reminiscent of the time of the cold war in its intensity;
9. Nostalgia for the USSR as a totalitarian empire and a great power feared by the whole world;
10. Restoration of Soviet historical concepts and propaganda clichés, excluding only internationalism;
11. Hatred of the intelligentsia, particularly emigrants, seen by the "G team" as "traitors to the motherland";
12. Hatred of dissidents and human rights advocates, political prisoners and journalists, from both Soviet times and the present day;
13. Hatred of perestroika, its ideology, its personalities and events. Hatred of the time of Yeltsin and Yeltsin himself;
14. The new element in the "G team" ideological arsenal is that all dissidents (or simply dissenters) are accused of "Russophobia". This is now the equivalent of "anti-Soviet agitation and propaganda", which was the 70th article of the Criminal Code during Brezhnev's time.
These goons descended full force on the RRBlog the day Dr. Magerovsky died. It was like the RRBlog inherited the goons from his blog. Back then the RRBlog allowed comments from anyone. Within hours of the notice of Dr.Magerovsky's repose, I had to change the blog settings so that I could screen comments before they were published. Then for the next 2 months I tried to show these (MP Zealots) that they were not welcomed on the RRBlog. That they are unwelcomed phased them not at all. They soon figured out that I was not going to publish their comments, so they started addressing their comments directly to me, knowing that I had to read their comments in order to moderate them.
RRBlog did not get the full gamut of a whole GTeam. We got a scaled down version. I saved copies of the comments in a file hoping to someday study their characteristics and tactics. But, this LaRussophobe article has done a beautiful job of that, and then some. Saves me the grief, and I'm truly grateful.
Before reading this LaRussophobe article, I referred to the GTeam commentators as MP Zealots, hecklers, and sometimes I called them goons. But goons did not seem to be a perfect fit since goons terrorize their targets. I did not feel terrorized. But I was more than annoyed. Heckled was a better description. But it was a menacing heckle. To boo and hiss is one thing, these MP Zealots have a quality of hatred that stands out above the normal capacity of a human being for hatred.
Their hatred was the first thing I noticed. This is their salient characteristic. They hate all of ROCOR. They laugh hatefully at the stupid part of ROCOR that fell for the union. They venomously despise the part of ROCOR that got away. They hate the R-splits, too.
To my great grief, some of the goons harassing the ROCOR Refugees blog appear to be members of ROCOR(MP). It was not long ago that such a menacing spirit was easily found in MP, but not in ROCOR. That has changed. It is very sad to see.
Other things I noticed:
-whenever I made a post, they had some kind of inane comment within hours.
-their comments would be made anytime, during times when everyone else was in Church. Even the first week of Lent did not slow them down a bit.
-Immediately after Dr. Magerovsky's repose, a goon descended on RRBlog with comments showing no respect for the dead or for the bereaved. Showing no fear of death. What horror for a human soul!
-I could really only discern maybe 4 different personalities from the supposedly several authors.
-Some of the psychological manipulation techniques were rather advanced. As if the goons could have been trained. Whether it is formal training or just demonic assistance, is hard to say. Demons are masters at psychological manipulation.
-The goons were desperate to get me to look at their blog. Often the comments contained a link to their blog or a link to a post in their blog. This was even after they knew I was not going to publish their comments. They sent me emails with links right in the subject line. (I say "sent" past tense because now I have their emails blocked. If they still send it, I do not know.)
Before I changed the settings on the blog so that only team members could comment, I did an experiment. I posted a post saying that a post was soon coming. Guess what? The goon, within a few hours, commented on that!
The LaRussophobe article is worthy of some study. There are clues in it that point to witchcraft. Some people say hypnosis instead of witchcraft. Hypnosis is similar to witchcraft. Both involve demons controlling a person's thinking and behavior.
The Goons are under hypnosis or under a spell. There are clues in the article. The biggest clue is this:
There is a spell that does this. It prohibits the victim from being able to speak unflatteringly, truth or lie, of the subject and to not be able to bear even hearing anything unflattering spoken about the subject. I do not know the name of the spell. I have seen this spell at work on two people in my life. So, for me, because I have seen it at work, this is a first clue. Someone who has not seen what I have seen might not list this clue as the number one indication that the goons are under witchcraft/hypnosis.
A big part of this clue is the objective observation from an outsider that the goon-victim is compelled against his will. "It drives them..." "It forces them..." Something characteristic of witchcraft is that it can compel a person against their will. How successful how soon depends on the strength of the victim's will. Ordinary everyday demons that we "invite" into our lives can not make us do something we don't want to do.
√ Notice how many times the word "hate" or "hatred" is used in this article to describe the goons. Hatred is the motivation of demons. This hatred has an inhuman quality to it. "Savage hatred." This goes beyond the usual influence demons can have over a person.
√ Notice words like "strange" or "unusual" when goon behavior does not make human sense. Why do the goons not care about their reputations? Why do the goons love what they hate?
√ "Usually, even after the most measured, innocent mention of 'lustration', the 'G team' starts shouting in unison about 'bloody repressions of democratic murderers' and 'witch hunts', after which they just lapse into obscene hysteria."
If it is so unbearable, why don't they just turn off the computer and go read a book or something instead? Not one of them copes with the unbearableness by just leaving. It's because they do not have the option to leave. They MUST stop the mouth from saying what they can not bear to hear. Even if it means "lapsing into obscene hysteria" at which point the person who was speaking just gives up.
"The wave of evil roaring out of a dark sea upon mankind is beyond human power to stop. The best Christians can hope for is avoidance. So not attempt to stop it with your weak hand. Avoid it, protect yourself from it, and that is enough for you. Get to know the spirit of the times, study it so that you can avoid its influence whenever possible." (St. Ignatius Brianchaninov †)
