GEORGE WILL vs VLADIMIR PUTIN
Referee: Mike King
we dive into the stinking cesspool that is George Will's recent and vicious attack piece on Vladimir Putin, a few words on
the topic of 'sophistry' are in order.
Sophistry is a rhetorical art form which relies upon ingenuity, fallacies and specious
effectiveness rather than
soundness of argument. A 'sophist' (in the modern day sense of the word) is therefore a person who
debates adroitly but
reasons superficially. In some cases, sophistry is used to cover up one's underlying
ignorance of the subject matter. Other times, the purpose of sophistry is to deliberately mislead.
What distinguishes the sophist
from the run-of-the-mill ignoramus or liar is his ability to sound intelligent and well informed. In some cases,
the sophist will indeed display sound reasoning and deep knowledge on a given topic. But when an ignorant sophist opines on
matters which he does not understand, his bloated ego compels him to 'fake it'. Whether he is a cunning liar or simply a puffed-up
fool, the tactics of the sophist are the same.
Sophists are generally quite erudite and engaging, combining a powerful
command of the language and excellent diction with a vast vocabulary of $100 words that they throw around to impress their
weak-minded targets. The really effective sophists are also skilled at using body language to enhance their phony facade of
deep wisdom. Dramatic pauses for effect, nose in the air, pensive looks, constipated
grimaces while speaking, pen-in-hand while making a point, and a hand-to-the-chin-and-lips (ala Rodin's 'Thinker' statue)
are some of the more recognizable gestures of the show-time sophist.
In the fake-ass worlds of Academia, Journalism, Hollywood
and Politics, these
pseudo-intellectual imposters are a dime-a-dozen: Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Bill Moyers, Peggy
Noonan, Ann Coulter, George Clooney, Charlie Rose, Charles Krauthammer, Rachel Maddow, Bob Costas, Chris Matthews, Diane Sawyer,
Brian Williams, Cokie Roberts, Sam Donaldson, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Alan Greenspan, John Kerry, Prince Charles, the late William
F. Buckley and so many others.
But if there is a 'poster
boy' for American sophistry, it would have to be the smug bow tie-wearing mega nerd of 'This Week' fame, syndicated columnist
George Will. Often referred to as one of the "smartest men in America", the highly articulate Will, depending on
what day it is, will vacillate between sublime brilliance and stupendous sophistry. As an Establishment-approved 'conservative', this is not surprising. The Leftist-Globalist PRC (Predatory Ruling
Class) will allow Will to shine 'from the Right' from time to time; but when it comes time for all hands (Left and
Right) to come on deck in service of a major Globalist agenda battle, count on Boy Georgie to slather on the seditious
And at this point in history, there is no
agenda item more pressing than the vilification of Vladimir Putin. Enter, from stage Right: Vladimir Putin’s Hitlerian Mind, by George Will, with line-by-line block rebuttal by your logically sound intrepid
The Russian president’s fascist revival in Eastern Europe poses a unique threat to the West
Vladimir Putin’s fascist revival is a crisis that tests the West’s
capacity to decide.
When Will speaks of 'fascism', he means it in the mythological sense of
the word, not the historic. You know; big bad Hitler plotting to conquer Planet Earth and exterminate or enslave all non-Aryans
blah....blah...blah. Notice how Will cleverly embeds the allegations of a "fascist revival" and a "crisis"
as a given, and then quickly redirects the subject to how the West should handle it.
Salesmen refer to this cunning rhetorical tactic as 'assumptive selling'. Sorry George. We will not allow you get
away with slipping such poisonous assumptive 'mickeys' into our journalistic drinks. Either prove your underlying premise
of a "facist revival' (in the sense you mean it), or cut the crap about some dangerous "crisis" caused
George Will uses an 'assumptive selling' close to sell the Putin-Hitler
Putin’s serial amputations of portions of Ukraine, which
began with his fait accompli in Crimea, will proceed, and succeed, until his appetite is satiated. Then the real
danger will begin.
Here we have a combination of outright lies with deliberate omissions.
The term "serial
amputations" implies that Putin iniated Crimea's reunification with Russia as well as the uprisings in Eastern Ukraine.
Those are flat out lies that can only be sold by deliberately omitting the true circumstances of the events which preceded
this crisis. Will knows full well that angry Crimeans and Eastern Ukrainians only rose up after
a democratically elected National government was violently overthrown by NATO / CIA- backed puppets.
coups; how "Hitlerian"!...No;
scratch that. Hitler and the 'Nazis' actually came to power peacefully and democratically.
Surely, the oh-so-smart Will must also know that the Crimean people, including the Tatar minority, then voted overwhelmingly to return to their historic
Russian Motherland. But why bother to include such pertinent, though inconvenient
details when you are selling World War III?
Ah the 'sins of omission'! The dishonest George Will wants us to forget how his boy John McCain helped to personally incite the Kiev orange helmets of the Kiev rent-a-mob to stage a violent coup."America
stands with you!", declared the warmongering Senator from Arizona to the eventual bomb-throwers of the pro-EU
mobs of Maidan Square.
McCain & his orange helmet-wearing mercenaries, NOT
PUTIN, lit the match in Kiev!
Will neglects to mention how it was the violent CIA-backed and McCain-backed coup (depicted above) that frightened
and upset the Russian-speaking people of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine.
Suppose Ukraine is merely his overture for the destruction of NATO,
the nemesis of his Soviet memory. Then what might be his version of the Gleiwitz radio-station episode 75 years
"Suppose"? Hey George, "suppose"
Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Venezuela, Lebanon (and God knows what other countries) are
merely America's "overture for the destruction of" innocent men, women and children everywhere. Let me
tell you something you warmongering pencil-neck geek; outside of the insane asylum known as "the West", it is the
good ole USA-Israel Axis that keeps people up at night, not
Notice Will's attempt to dust off the Cold War by alluding
to Putin's "Soviet memory"? How did Putin suddenly go from being a 'Nazi' to a 'Soviet' (polar opposites)?
Make up your mind as to which childish ad hominem line of logically flawed attack you want to pursue and stick with that,
USA! USA! The holier-than-thou Will was a huge supporter of the immoral war against Iraq, and he
was silent about America's torture of prisoners, including women and children!
Now George, do tell us about that "Gleiwitz radio-station" you mentioned. (Watch
me ambush this pompous propagandizing punk.)
On the evening of August 31, 1939, Nazi SS personnel pretending to be
Polish partisans seized the station, which was about four miles inside Germany (Gliwice is now in Poland), proclaiming
that Poland was invading Germany to achieve “our just [territorial] claims,” and shot a German prisoner
dressed in a stolen Polish uniform, giving Hitler his pretext for declaring war the next day.
Oh dear Lord. (palm to face, deep sigh)
Please, not the Gleiwitz false-flag fairy tale again. This
coming from a guy who has made a career of mocking 'conspiracy theories'. George, in the modern day vernaculiar of American
teens; "Dude! You are like sooooo busted now!"
Class, here's a bit of real history you'll not hear from sophist Will.
In the days leading up to the outbreak of the German-Polish War / World War II, the ultra-Nationalistic Polish military
government (with the encouragement and blessing of Britain & France)
did indeed 'look the other way' while Partisan Bolshevik gangs repeatedly provoked Germany with cross-border
attacks as well as attacks on Germans stranded in Poland since the post-World War I treaties. When Hitler finally responded,
Britain and France had their pretext for declaring war upon Germany.
Should anyone doubt the aggressiveness and murderous intent of the Soviet-backed Bolshevik gangs of Poland, look
into the massacre at Bromberg which took place less than 48 hours after the Gleiwitz incident. At Bromberg, German villagers
were tied together and physically mutilated by what Will casually describes as "Polish Partisans" (Mostly Jewish
Communists). The abuse of Germans at the hands of these terror gangs is a undeniable fact of history that Mr. Will, again,
conveniently (or ignorantly) omits from his propaganda piece.
Georgie Girl; one more thing. For your information, Hitler never mentioned the Gleiwitz Radio
Station attack during his September 1, 1939 Reichstag
Declaration before the German people;
not once! What would be the point of staging a false attack if you're not going to even bring
it up the next day?
The actual September 1 speech which you
alluded to is linked here, in full, just in case you don't believe me. Please enlighten us, George. Do show us where
in Hitler's speech is the town of Gleiwitz even cited? (here)
German victims of Bromberg
Evidently, this tin-coated turd of the Washington chattering class, in citing the Gleiwitz
myth, wants us to believe that the coming provocations of Putin will actually be Russian false-flags designed to frame Ukraine
or one of the NATO (US)-owned Baltic States. Hey George, ever hear of the
Maine? The Lusitania? Operation Northwoods? Tonkin Gulf? Those were all frame-up attempts that the US now even admits to. Talk about narcissistic-sociopathic projection.
President Johnson used the PHONY election-year attack at Tonkin
Gulf as the pretext for escalating the war in Vietnam.
Putin has discarded the minor inhibitions of what NATO calls his “hybrid
war” — giving slightly surreptitious aid to Russian separatists; brazenly infiltrating Russian soldiers
in unmarked uniforms. Russia has invaded Ukraine, although the Obama administration likes the semantic anesthesia
of calling it an “incursion.” Putin does not pretend that it will be, like President Nixon’s
1970 “incursion” into Cambodia, temporary.
Ah, Georgie Girl; you better rewrite that last paragraph. How can Putin's
alleged infiltration of Ukraine be simultaneously "surreptitious" (stealthy) and "brazen" at the same time?
That doesn't make any sense wonder-boy. Come on now. Get your lies straight, dork!
In falsely accusing Russia of invading Ukraine, Will is repeating a claim which originated
with the gangsters of Kiev; the same CIA-backed gang of criminals that violently overthrew an elected Russia-friendly government.
To take such a claim at face value is bad enough for someone regarded as "one of the smartest men in America". But
Will's regurgitation of this lie becomes even more laughable when we hear the actual 'testimony' of the key 'witnesses' that
the sophist New York Times quoted when it originally broke this false invasion story on its front page.
From the August 28, 2014 NY Times:
"On the highway in
Novoazovsk on Tuesday, Sgt. Ihor Sharapov, a soldier with the Ukrainian border patrol unit, said he had seen tanks
drive across the border, although they were marked with flags of the Donetsk People’s Republic. “I tell you they are Russians, but this is what proof I have,” said
Sgt. Aleksei Panko, holding up his thumb and index finger to form a zero."
wonder boy of the Washington Press! Pardon my skepticism. But might you be able to produce parties a tad bit more credible
than Sulzberger's Times, or Sgt. 'zero evidence' Panko? Please?
Well now, George. As the 2003 "Colin
Powell and the Weapons of Mass Destruction" issue above (and also 100 separate stories over a 1 year period) proved;
if The New York Times says so, it must be true!
So, suppose Putin, reprising his Ukrainian success, orchestrates unrest
among the Russian-speaking minorities in Latvia, Lithuania, or Estonia. Then, recycling Hitler’s words that
his country “could not remain inactive,” Putin invades one of these NATO members. Either NATO invokes
Article 5 — an attack on any member is an attack on all — or NATO disappears and the Soviet Union,
NATO’s original raison d’être, is avenged.
Here we ago again with "suppose". What kind of rubbish is this?
"Suppose"? This is pure logical fallacy.
I were to assume that my neighbor two doors down, whom I know nothing about, wants to kill me. Should I call the police and
have him arrested? Imagine:
9-1-1 Operator: "9-1-1. What
is your emergency?"
Me: "I am 'supposing'
that my 'fascist' neighbor wants to come and kill me. You must come and arrest him!"
9-1-1 Operator: "Has he threatened you in any way?"
Me: "No dispatcher.
He has been 'slightly
surreptitious' about his 'brazen' ambitions. But you have to stop him!"
9-1-1 Operator: "I'm sorry
sir. But we can't arrest anyone without probable cause. What actual evidence do you have that he intends to harm you?"
"I have 'zero evidence'. But that is further testament to his Hitlerian cunning and Stalinist brutality. His sinister
'fascist-Soviet' plot has been concealed, even from me."
"Perhaps you should speak to him?"
"What good is talking? Neville Chamberlain tried that. He had a choice
between shame and war. He ultimately chose both."
9-1-1 Operator: (rolling eyes) "I'm
sorry sir. But we can't do anything about this. Good day sir."
Me: "Wait! Before you hang up on me, I would remind you of the Glieweitz incident, and reiterate the folly
of Neville Chamberlain's 'appeasement' of Hitler at Munich. You do know about those events, right?
Hitler.... Mussolini .... Hitler ... Hitler ....
Isolationism ..... Nazis .... Hitler ....Stalin ..... Rommel.... Zyklon B ....Hitler.... Auschwitz... Hitler."
Operator: (with sound muted, turning to colleague) "I'll
keep this lunatic on the line. You call the insane asylum. Tell them to send some very tall and strong white-coats to this
Georgie, your comedy routine would be funny if it didn't
portend World War III, which is exactly what you are suggesting here! Speaking
of war, George, given the fact that you seem to always advocate for bloodshed, why did you run off to Oxford instead
of putting your own life on the line during the Vietnam War? Too smart to die, eh Chicken George?
And one more thing wonder boy; I cut you some slack earlier with "fait accompli"
because the term has become common; but nobody in America uses Frenchified terms like "raison d’être", except puffed-up, bow tie-wearing, over-educated, under-intelligent
sophist sons-of-bitches. Just say, 'the most important reason' and stop showing off; goof-ball!
"Suppose" that the "raison d’être" of this pompous propagandist,
this slippery sophist, this warmongering weasel, this tin-plated turd, this bow-tied butt-hole is to deceive his
gullible sycophants at the behest of his Globalist masters.
Although no one more thoroughly detested Hitler’s regime
that General Erwin Rommel served, Winston Churchill acknowledged in January 1942 in the House of Commons the talent
of Britain’s enemy: “We have a very daring and skillful opponent against us, and, may I say across the
havoc of war, a great general.”
George, please! Enough with the childish and irrelevant World War II analogies!
The whole theme is so bloody darn played-out and juvenile. It's always a sure sign of an empty intellectual arsenal when one must resort to the tiresome mantra of
Hitler-Hitler-Hitler-Hitler-Hitler. We can forgive a college freshman for engaging in such juvenile pre-sophistry, but not
"one of the smartest men in America".
Putin is, the West should similarly acknowledge, more talented and dangerous
than either Nikita Khrushchev or Leonid Brezhnev. Their truculence was not fueled by fury. Putin’s essence
is anger. It is a smoldering amalgam of resentment (of Russia’s diminishment because of the Soviet Union’s
collapse), revanchist ambitions (regarding formerly Soviet territories and spheres of influence), cultural loathing
(for the pluralism of open societies), and ethnic chauvinism that presages “ethnic cleansing” of non-Russians
from portions of Putin’s expanding Russia.
Putin is "more dangerous than Khrushchev or Brezhnev", eh George? Really?
Really?! You have truly gone off the deep end now. Even your eldest son Jon is capable of better reasoning than that.
I'm sorry George. That was uncalled for on my part. Let's leave Jon out of this. God
bless his gentle soul. But then again, how many Iraqi children have been born with much worse birth defects as a result
of the Depleted Uranium of the Iraq War which your poison-pen made possible?
George, you were already a snot-nosed teenager at some
high-falutin' prep school when Khrushchev
brutally smashed the Hungarian freedom uprising with his tanks. And you were at Princeton or Oxford about the same time that Khrushchev's
agent, Fidel Castro, overthrew
the Cuban government and then hosted Soviet missiles. Later that same year (1960), the nut-case Khrushchev removed his shoe and pounded
it on the lectern at the UN, and later threatened to "bury" America. Surely you haven't forgotten such gross
displays of "truculence" (aggressiveness) and "fury" on the part of Khrushchev?
No "fury" from Khrushchev the shoe-banging
tyrant, eh George?
And what of Khrushchev's successor, Brezhnev? George; you were a full-fledged
member of the DC Idiocracy when Brezhnev deliberately destabilized Southern Africa and Central-South America
with proxy Red revolutionaries. One year after the death of the notoriously pompous Brezhnev, his own successor,
KGB boss Yuri Andropov, presided over the reckless shoot-down of KAL Flight 007, and then
tried to cover up the mistake (which may have actually been provoked by US elements). When has the calm statesman Vladimir Putin ever behaved with such "fury-fueled truculence"?
don't even go there with the Malaysian Airline incident which now has all the appearances of having been a puppet Ukrainian
KAL 007 (1983) / Old school, hard-line Commie Brezhnev
And what is this "ethnic chauvinism" that you falsely accuse Putin of, and
that you predict is coming? Surely you must know that Putin is very popular among Russia's Tatar, Central Asiatic and
Muslim minorities; so much so that Russia's small minority of violent 'White Power' skin-heads (cultivated by the CIA)
have mocked Putin for "feeding the Caucuses" and tolerating Islam.
Speaking of "ethnic
chauvinism" and "ethnic cleansing", George; how is your idol Bibi Netanyahu doing these days? When are you going to do a piece about Israel's on and off genocide campaign in Gaza, George?
George Will is a passionate defender of Bibi Netanyahu and his
genocidal RACIST handiwork.
In the rarefied Anglo-Judaic circles in which hypocritical snobs like George Will move among,
even the slightest criticism of "the State of Israel" (bow your head in reverence as you say that) is regarded
as 'anti-Semitism' - or perhaps even (drum roll) ......"Hitlerian".
George, shut your dirty lying stinking mouth up. Seriously, just shut the flip up!
Left: Russia's ethnic minorities and Muslims admire and respect
Right: Oh-oh George! Somebody forgot to tell
the Jews of Russia that Putin is the new Hitler!
This is more than merely the fascist mind; its ethnic-cum-racial
component makes it Hitlerian. Hence Putin is “unpredictable” only to those unfamiliar with the 1930s. Regarding
the roles of resentment and vengeance, remember where Hitler insisted that France formally capitulate in 1940 —
in the railroad carriage near the town of Compiegne,
where Germany signed the 1918 armistice.
Double face-palm combo with very deep, lung-filling sigh action and
a few shots of vodka on that one.
Hitler-Hitler-Hitler-Hitler.....and did I say Hitler?
If one were to drink a teaspoon of beer for every time some know-nothing DC sophist invoked the name of Hitler (or poor
Neville Chamberlain) to support his case, he would be dead of alcohol poisoning within 24 hours. Good ole Adolf must
have really shaken the Globalist ruling class to its core. Seven decades later and they still can't get the man out
of their heads!
And what the flip is this grand-standing garbage about
an "ethnic-cum-racial component", anyway? Are we playing the Race Card too now, Georgie? "No justice, no peace!"
Are you friggin kidding me, George? This is pure slanderous sophistry in all its stupefying splendor; now set to Latin terminology for the easily
Well George, if you insist
on bringing up the issue of German resentment, I would remind you that Germany was tricked into laying down its arms in 1918,
and then brutally gang-raped at gun-point during the post-war Peace Conferences.
Germany's hyperinflation was the direct result
of Allied oppression. Money became so worthless that wheelbarrows were used to carry it on shopping trips.When the French
demanded resources instead of worthless Marks, they reoccupied the German Ruhr territory in 1924
(above, right). Germans protested but were powerless to stop the post-war shakedown.
Let's not digress too much into the commonly accepted lies told about World Wars I &
II, but let us acknowledge that the post-World War I conduct of the victorious British and French was reprehensible. The same
can be said about what the rapacious West did to Russia following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Remember the Yeltsin years and the Harvard-Wall Street 'privatization shock therapy'?
I know that you do, George. You just don't want your gullible readers to know.
Russia under the drunken President Yeltsin was raped
by American economic hit-men and their Russian Oligarch allies. 'Darkness at Dawn' by David Satter tells the sad story of
a nation brought to its knees. George Will fails to mention how Putin has cleaned up Russia and restored its economy and civil
Since its emancipation by the Soviet Union’s demise, Ukraine
has been ravaged by corruption that frays national sentiment, which even before this was a tenuous phenomenon. In
The Long Shadow: The Legacies of the Great War in the Twentieth Century, David Reynolds of Cambridge University
cites a British diplomat’s 1918 analysis:
one to ask the average peasant in the Ukraine his nationality, he would answer that he is Greek Orthodox; if
pressed to say whether he is a Great Russian, a Pole, or an Ukrainian he would probably reply that he is a peasant;
and if one insisted on knowing what language he spoke, he would say that he talked “the local tongue.”
Ukraine may be an ethnic casserole susceptible to diminishment by Putin’s
ladle. But the Baltic States, by virtue of their NATO membership, are, regardless of their histories or sociologies,
decisively different. And given Putin’s animus, nourished by his negligibly resisted success in Ukraine,
he is more dangerous than the Islamic State.
Because Putin has refused to take Ukraine's bait, and also because Ukraine
(which even Will now admits is corrupt) is not formerly a member of NATO, the Globalists will have a really
hard time legally justifying their war against Russia. It clearly seems as though Will is writing off Ukraine here. The provocative triggering mechanism for NATO's war will likely
come from one or more of the Baltic gangster regimes of Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia - NATO
members all, and US puppets all!
George Will, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, is unwittingly telegraphing the diabolical plan for us.
America's broken promises regarding eastward NATO expansion now has the war-making organization operating right
on Russia's border with the three Baltic States (top-center). War with one means war with all!
Ask the bombed out Serbians of 1999 (former Russian allies - now EU vassals) how wonderful the NATO gang really is. Russia
is right to be concerned about NATO's eastward expansion!
U.S. participation in defense of the Baltic States is unconditional.
Says who, George? Says you?
One or more of the putrid little corrupt regimes of the tiny Baltic States, encouraged,
no, ordered, from behind-the-scenes by their mightier Western paymaster-warmongers, can easily trigger World War
III; a war in which we can safely assume that Mr. Will's 22 year old son, David, will not be fighting in.
Ironically, there is a parallel to World War II, after all!
Polish Ambassador Potocki
exits the White House after a pre-war meeting with FDR. Potocki's own diaries have since confirmed that
FDR had hoped to use the controversy surrounding the "Polish Corridor", which cut through
a dismembered Germany, as a means of engineering a European war against Hitler.
