Historian Srdja Trifkovic explains why the Nikki-Haley American elites hate Russia:
” … The most significant trait of the Bolshevik terror during the civil war and in the ensuing decades was the promotion of a quasi religious forma mentis based on anti-Christian zeal, and the parallel insistence on the creation of a New Man divorced from his ancestors, his naturally evolving communities, and his culture. As Trotsky wrote in 1924,”
Man will make it his purpose to master his own feelings, to raise his instincts to the heights of consciousness, to make them transparent, to extend the wires of his will into hidden recesses, and thereby to raise himself to a new plane, to create a higher social biologic type, or, if you please, a superman.
“Today, Russia is in recovery, while America’s dominant elites are gripped by a rather similar kind of madness. Abroad, ever since the fall of the Berlin Wall, Russia has been pursuing conventional, national-interest-based policies, while the United States has pursued global hegemony. ‘History has called America and our allies to action,’ George W. Bush announced in his Leninist 2002 State of the Union Address. ‘We’ve come to know truths that we will never question.’ The same principle has been reiterated enthusiastically in Obama’s Reagan-plus ‘vindication of the idea of America,’ and reluctantly by Trump in the aftermath of his defeat by the Swamp.
At home, Russia is emerging as the last major European country that remains true to its roots. America is enthusiastically destroying monuments—Confederates today, the Founders tomorrow. Russia is unencumbered by obsessive self-examination. America’s elites have used allegedly enlightened and progressive ideas and ideals to create a plethora of isms, and to promote a complex Cultural Marxist paradigm of unlimited grievances and victimhood. Just like the Bolsheviks, they judge all things not on the grounds of their legality, legitimacy, or natural morality, but—as per Charlottesville—strictly on the basis of their ideological contents.
The Bolsheviks were evil; but they were also blinded by their own notions of imminent world revolution, and thus unable to resist the state-rebuilding force of Stalin’s ‘socialism in one country.’ Their heirs in today’s America are demonstrably more dexterous in Gramscian terms, but just as criminally insane: Quos deus vult perdere, dementat prius. Their citadels—the media and academia—are literally beyond redemption. It would be in the American interest for the flyover-country deplorables to develop a strategy of permanently excluding them from the nation’s political and cultural scene. …”
