Why the American Left Hates Russia

Why the American Left Hates Russia, by Julio Severo.

China, the largest communist nation in the world, has stolen entire computer banks of information from the U.S. government. Their new weapons systems look suspiciously like the U.S. weapon systems. China has manipulated trade markets and its currency to steal from America its wealth, and its trade secrets.

Yet, there is no U.S. hysteria against China. No U.S. sanctions or boycotts on China, which is officially atheist and communist. On the contrary, in spite of the Chinese attacks, left-wing president Barack Obama and right-wing president Donald Trump officially visited China and showed respect for its communist rulers.

In contrast, Russia … has been consistently accused, by the mainstream left-wing media in the U.S., of cyber intrusions during the 2016 presidential election. …

So if communist China’s actions are worse than Russia’s actions, why is Russia the favorite victim of attacks from the U.S. … media, the Democrats, and the Left in general?

The United States tolerates kindly even Saudi Arabia, which has fomented Islamic terror around the world. 9/11 was committed by Saudi terrorists.

But America does not tolerate Russia.

What accounts for such extreme intolerance? The answer is very simple: Russia today embodies everything the U.S. Left hates.

Russia is Christian. In fact, Russia is the largest Christian Orthodox nation in the world. Russian Christianity is not similar to the U.S. evangelicalism. The United States is the largest Protestant nation in the world. Russian Christianity is more similar, in some traditionalistic respects, including in the worship of saints, to Catholicism. …

Writing in the Washington Times, L. Todd Wood said, “Visiting Moscow reminds me in some ways of the American South. There is a new church going up on every corner in the Russian capital. You can’t help hear the bells ringing somewhere during the day from some church or monastery nearby. The golden domes dot the landscape.” …

Russia is mostly white. Although 30 percent of Russia is Muslim, Russia tries to protect its culture by brutally repressing Islamic extremism. Russia treats its Muslim citizens and mosques just as Israel treats its Muslim citizens and mosques. …

For the most part, Russian women hate feminism. They had the opportunity to experience real “equality” during Soviet times — and they didn’t like it. “Why should I want to act like a man and have to do everything?” Russian women ask. Sex roles are very defined in Russia to the horror of the cultural Marxists in the West. …

Russia has a law banning homosexual propaganda. The law simply makes it a crime to expose homosexual propaganda to children and teens. While in Russia parents who do not want their children being indoctrinated in the homosexual lifestyle are respected, in the West generally and in America particularly, homosexuality is being crammed down children’s throats in school, over the objections of most parents. …

Conclusion:

The Russia hysteria in the West is today largely driven by the American Left and can be explained in a very simple way: Russia is Christian, white and conservative… everything the Left loves to hate.
