Eurasianism

We recently wrote about Alexandr Dugin and we have also written about Vladimir Putin. We now wish to present a few quotes from an article by Matthew Raphael Johnson, a scholar of Russian Orthodox history and philosophy, who discusses the works of several Eurasianist thinkers. While his article, which is sympathetic toward the ideas of Dugin and others, does make a few good points, it also confirms that Eurasianism is fundamentally incompatible with, and opposed to, European civilization and White racialism.

“The Eurasian idea is one that both defines those within it as well as excludes those without. In this case, the ‘other’ is the ‘West.”

“there are three basic concepts of Russian Eurasianism that can serve as the basis of foreign policy. In all cases, the idea of the USSR lies at the root.”

“The USSR needs to be reborn”

“In Ukraine, the far Eastern coal and steel areas remain staunch Russian supporters and, to a great extent, neo-communists.”

“Savitsky stresses that the Mongol occupation was not destructive for Russia, but quite the opposite. The Horde was a culturally advanced people who protected Russia from the inroads of western religious ideology. All occupied lands, so Savitsky and Most Eurasians would argue, did well under Mongol administration.”

“Most importantly, Savitsky argued as early as 1928 that the future belongs to Asia.”

“Russians are not Europeans, or at least not entirely European. Russians are mixtures of Slav, Mongol and Turkish blood that help inform their genetics. This means that Russians are genetically related to the Caucasian and some Central Asian peoples. In addition, this ‘third world’ blood makes the Russians an ideal intermediary between Asia and Europe, or even Europe and the third world.”

“In Russia’s case, the Eurasianists do not normally use an ethnic criterion of membership”

“the Slavic and Turkic connection is clear – the Slavs will be dealing with Asians as equal partners within a single ‘civilizational space’”

“The Eurasianist—naturally—sees southern and eastern Asia to be the future.”

Eurasianism is not limited to Russia and Putin fanboys in the West. The Hungarian Jobbik party’s leader Gábor Vona believes in Eurasianism, on the basis that, according to him, Hungarians are actually a Turkic people, which should unite with other Turkic peoples. This view is called Turanism. Vona incorrectly believes that Hungarians and Turks are “brotherly nations” and “connected by common blood”.

dugin vona Eurasianism

Alexandr Dugin with Gábor Vona

An article describing a lecture which Vona held in Turkey reports that Vona said:

“Jobbik will never cooperate with any ‘right-wing’ Western radical organization that considers Turkey and Islam enemies. . . . Anti-Islamic and anti-Turkish Western European hate-mongers can only learn from Muslims and the Turks . . . The Jobbik president stressed that Jobbik considers Turkey and all other Turkic peoples kindred nations . . .  Islam [is] humanity’s last hope in the darkness of globalism and liberalism.”

Eurasianism presents itself as an alternative to modernity. But radical Islam is also an alternative to modernity. We would obviously not support Islamism, no matter how opposed it is to liberal democracy and MTV anti-culture. Both Eurasianism and Islam are world-views for non-Whites and mixed peoples. Such world-views might or might not be good for them – and if they are good for them, if they unite and strengthen non-Western nations, odds are that it would be bad for us.

A note on Alexandr Dugin

The National Policy Institute (NPI), lead by Richard Spencer, is holding a meeting of sorts this autumn in Budapest, Hungary. The Putinist pseudo-philosopher Alexandr Dugin will speak at this meeting:

budapest square ad A note on Alexandr Dugin

A possible reason is that Spencer is married to Nina Kouprianova, also known as Nina Byzantina, who has translated Dugin’s works into English.

“Byzantina” spends much of her time on Twitter defending Vladimir Putin and the Soviet Union, going so far as to claim Stalin was not a mass murderer. Interesting to note here is that Stalin was a Georgian – not an ethnic Russian – and “Byzantina” practically brags about her Georgian ancestors. Georgians are a mongrel Eurasian people.

Why is this important anyway? Because Alexandr Dugin is most certainly not a supporter of White racialism or even of European civilization. He believes in Russia as a Eurasian power. Dugin’s Russia is a multiracial and non-racialist state outside of European civilization, allied with non-European powers against the West.

It is not only the liberalism infecting the West that Dugin objects to, but to the West itself, as a civilization.

Aleksandr Dugin on White race A note on Alexandr Dugin

Alexandr Dugin on the White race. Not only liberalism, but White civilization itself, must be destroyed, according to Dugin, and therefore he supports the anti-White policies of Zimbabwe.

Furthermore, Dugin, in an article titled “Isaac Luria and Sabbatai Zevi in Russian Orthodoxy”, writes that “. . . I was also reading the precious books of Gershom Scholem, whom I consider to be the greatest traditionalist thinker.” The Jewish writer Hannah Arendt remarked regarding Scholem, who was a Jewish Kabbalist: “Basically, [Scholem] believes: The midpoint of the world is Israel.”

Dugin has condemned America for being “racist” and he opposes ethnic nationalism. He dismisses criticism of Jewry as “paranoia”, and is open to alliances with the communist SYRIZA party in Greece.

Here are a few quotes from the translation of an interview in Der Spiegel:

The Western civilization is a racist, ethnocentric civilization. Every Westerner is a racist . . . But my opinion is: the civilizations of the West and the East are completely different. The Eastern one is superior in respect to defending herself against the Western racism. . . . The Western European ethnocentrism is a constant . . . All European philosophers are racists. . . .

We Russians are no nationalists, we never were a nation. When we speak of the “Ours”, it isn’t meant ethnic. The Chechen or the Uzbek are also included. . . .

Eurasia – that’s Russia and her partners. Turkey, Iran, China, India. The post-Soviet space, which even includes Mongolia. . . .

SPIEGEL: You say: “There are no critics of the Putinistic course anymore. And if there are critics, they are mentally ill, and they must be sent in the control of doctors. Putin is everything, Putin is indispensable. “. Is that really by you?

Dugin: Yes.

More could be said of Dugin, but this should suffice. He is clearly anti-European and anti-White.

Such a person does not belong in a White racialist meeting.

Tragically, the otherwise admirable site The Occidental Observer has chosen to promote this NPI event.

White nationalist delusions about Russia

The crisis in Ukraine is unfolding at full speed, and White Nationalist circles in the West are closely following the events. A lot has already been said about the deep cultural and historical divide separating the western, Europe-oriented part of Ukraine from the eastern part, which has strong ties with Russia. With Russia’s military moves in the Crimea, some are even prophesying the onset of the Third World War.

Timeline of Putin’s Crackdown on the Far Right

(2003) Putin has condemned the use of a number of political parties in the last election campaign nationalist slogans such as “Russia – for a Russian.” “Those who it says – it is either dishonest people, so just assholes, or it provocateurs” [...] “The prosecutor’s office must respond to manifestations of this kind, if it finds in certain actions constitute a crime,” [...] “We have the relevant article of the Criminal Code,” [...] “As for those parties that during the election campaign allowed sort of thing, frankly, I did not see it, because it really did not watch carefully for all the debate. But if such facts are, I will talk to Attorney General asking him to review what is known about it. Reaction should be.”

http://www.news24.com/World/News/Putin-apologises-for-racism-20050927

(2005) Putin: Russia’s Federal Security Service, the successor agency to the KGB, should be used to fight extremist nationalism and racism in society [...] “The security services, especially the FSB, should become an important link in an effective opposition to extremism,” “Russia has always had strong national unity and cohesion among the peoples living on its lands,” “One must understand that militant nationalism, xenophobia, and calls for violence, and inter-ethnic conflict threaten the stability of our multi-ethnic state.”

(2006) Putin, speaking at the parade for the 61st Victory Day anniversary on Tuesday, said the Soviet defeat of the Nazis should be a warning to those seeking to revive fascism today. Speaking against a backdrop of rising intolerance and racially motivated violence in Russia, Putin linked today’s extremism and xenophobia with the fascist menace of World War II. “Those who are once again trying to raise the defeated banners of Nazism — those who are planting racial hatred, extremism and xenophobia — are leading the world toward a dead end,” “The downfall of fascism should become a lesson and a warning that retaliation is inevitable.”

They always have been and always will be a time bomb under our sovereignty,” Putin said.

(2012?) Putin for internet censorship, wants a “barrier to extremism propaganda in the Internet.” “It is necessary to take into account new challenges, i.e. to create a reliable barrier to information spread in the Internet, the propaganda of extremism, national, religious and social intolerance.”

http://www.itar-tass.com/en/c32/536144.html

(2012) Putin has expressed his support of the idea to ban the mentioning of suspects’ and convicts’ ethnicity in the media, with violations of this leading to the possible closure of the media outlet in question. “I agree with you that a criminal has no ethnicity… I do not want to interfere, but if the law comes to me, I will of course support it,”

(2012) Putin vows “Russia will never forget Holocaust”. President Vladimir Putin reaffirmed Russia’s commitment to tolerance and open societies during a meeting in Moscow with Israeli President Shimon Peres. The Russian president said the building represented Russia’s dedication to “eliminating xenophobia and nationalism.”

http://rt.com/politics/russia-putin-israel-iran-258/

(2012) Putin cautioned Monday against attempts to stir up ethnic discord and warned that he was ready to ban nationalist parties as he stepped up his Russian presidential campaign. “I am deeply convinced that attempts to preach ideas about building a Russian ‘national,’ mono-ethnic state contradict our entire millenium-long history,” [...] “If a multi-ethnic society is hit by a bacteria of nationalism it loses its strength and durability. Connivance with attempts to foment ethnic strife and hatred towards people of another culture or faith can trigger far-reaching consequences.” Putin slammed attempts to inflame nationalist sentiments, saying the Russian people throughout centuries served as the backbone of Russia’s multi-ethnic, multi-confessional state. “The Russians’ great mission is to unite, bind together a civilisation,”

(2012) Putin says, Russia must counter nationalist threat. “Today more and more often, under the guise of development of democracy and freedom, various ethnic nationalist groups are raising their heads. They take part in rallies, work on the Internet and among teenagers and students,” Putin said, “In essence they all are pushing, provoking separatist tendencies inside Russia,” the president said, addressing the first meeting of his Council on Inter-Ethnic Relations. “It is important to confront their dangerous influence.”

(2013) Putin requests General Attorney office to ramp up internet surveillance & repression against non-PC Russians. “They hold public actions, spread the ideas in ​​the Internet, almost openly recruit supporters. Your duty – very responsive to attempts to incite ethnic and religious hatred, propaganda of xenophobia and chauvinism.”

(2013) Putin in the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center he donated money to build: “[...] Jewish people for centuries Russia has been and remains a family home. Russia was formed initially as a multinational state, and representatives of the Jewish people have made to the development of our country’s huge contribution – intellectual, inverse, labor. At all times, shoulder-to-shoulder with the other peoples of Russia came to the defense of our country, when it was necessary[...]I am very pleased that opened a year ago, the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center continues this tradition, tells the story of the Jewish people in Russia and in general in the history of the world, is making and will make a significant contribution to that for which it was created – in the development of just that same tolerance, of which I have just said.”

(2013) Putin about Turkic-Asian ex-Soviet “compatriots”: “As for our compatriots, I think that they should be able to obtain citizenship under a simplified procedure, as should all people from the post-Soviet area who are healthy, educated, of an age when they can have children, and adapt easily to our cultural environment. Russia needs such people. I just recently updated my instruction to the Government and the Federal Migration Service. I hope that these procedures will be drafted and applied.”

(2013) Putin urged Russian lawmakers “to develop a simplified procedure for granting Russian citizenship to our compatriots, the bearers of the Russian language and Russian culture, the direct descendants of those who were born in the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, for those who want to take up permanent residence in our country and, therefore, to give up their current citizenship.” In his annual address to the Federal Assembly, Putin said that Russia needs new blood – educated and hardworking people who want to move to the country and consider it their homeland. [...] Critics also argue that the bill may cause an increase of immigration from the former Soviet republics in the Caucasus and Central Asia, adding to the thousands of migrant workers from those regions that have already come to Russia.

(2013) Putin opposes enforcing RF’s border control with ex-USSR states (this includes Turkic and Asian states like Azerbaijan, Tadjikistan, Kazakhstan etc): “The [existence of] visa requirements within the CIS would mean that we are pushing former Soviet republics away from us. We do not need to push them away. Rather, we need to forge closer relations with them. But we ought to make this process more civilized,”

(2013) Putin congratulates Russian Muslims with the start of the holy month of Ramadan. “We are proud of the names of prominent Muslims who have made an invaluable contribution to the strengthening of Russia’s defense of its independence and sovereignty, have done much to preserve peace and harmony in our multicultural society.”

http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&sl=ru&tl=en&u=http://kremlin.ru/news/18566

(2013) Putin: “[...] we should not forget that America’s development began with a large-scale ethnic cleansing, unprecedented in human history. [...] When Europeans arrived in America, that was the first thing they did. And you have to be honest about it. There are not so many stories like that in human history. [...] Then there was slavery, and that’s something that is deeply ingrained in America. In his memoirs, US Secretary of State Colin Powell revealed how hard it was for him as a black man to grow his way up, how hard it was to live with other people staring at you. It means this mentality has taken root in the hearts and minds of the people, and is likely to be still there.”

http://eng.kremlin.ru/news/5571

(2013) Putin: “[...] nationalists must remember that Russia was formed specifically as a multi-ethnic and multi-confessional country from its very inception. Nationalists must remember that by calling into question our multi-ethnic character, and exploiting the issue of Russian, Tatar, Caucasian, Siberian or any other nationalism or separatism, means that we are starting to destroy our genetic code. In effect, we will begin to destroy ourselves. [...] Along with this the different cultures in Russia have the unique experience of mutual influence, mutual enrichment and mutual respect. This multiculturalism and multi-ethnicity lives in our historical consciousness, in our spirit and in our historical makeup. Our state was built in the course of a millennium on this organic model. Russia – as philosopher Konstantin Leontyev vividly put it – has always evolved in “blossoming complexity” as a state-civilisation, reinforced by the Russian people, Russian language, Russian culture, Russian Orthodox Church and the country’s other traditional religions. [...] It has always sought to flexibly accommodate the ethnic and religious specificity of particular territories, ensuring diversity in unity. Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism and other religions are an integral part of Russia’s identity, its historical heritage and the present-day lives of its citizens. [...] However, it is clearly impossible to identify oneself only through one’s ethnicity or religion in such a large nation with a multi-ethnic population. In order to maintain the nation’s unity, people must develop a civic identity on the basis of shared values, a patriotic consciousness, civic responsibility and solidarity, respect for the law, and a sense of responsibility for their homeland’s fate, without losing touch with their ethnic or religious roots.”

Russia’s Chief Rabbi cheered the annexation of Crimea

crimea lazar Russia’s Chief Rabbi cheered the annexation of Crimea

We missed this news item a few months ago:

When Vladimir Putin occupied Crimea, Russia’s Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar was present at the Kremlin ceremony, cheering the annexation.

Lazar, who is a friend of Putin, does not care much about ethnic Russians, and least of all about Ukrainians. A Tablet Magazine article quoted Lazar as saying this regarding his priorities:

When I go to sleep at night, I want to feel that I did the maximum for the Jewish people. My primary interest lies with Russian Jews. After that the Jews in Israel, and in third place all the Jews of the world and after that — if I can, also worry about every person in Russia, to help the Russian government.

In other words, Lazar admits that his ultimate loyalty is to Jews – whether they live in Russia or somewhere else on the globe.

Putin recently met with a group of prominent rabbis, including Rabbi Yitzhak Ovadia, Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel, whose father, who also was Chief Rabbi until he passed away last year, said non-Jews exist only to serve Jews. Putin expressed his support for Israel’s bombing of Gaza. The ongoing Israeli attack on Gaza has killed at least 479 non-Jews, mostly women and children.
