Of course the Russians love their children, you dumb bass player!

I hate it when another pundit puts down an idea that I had before but never put into a post. I am referring to some words in the latest great Ann Coulter column "Ann Coulter: Let’s Make Russia Our Sister Country!". Now, I will warn my readers right here and now, or better yet, give you a "heads-up" (hahaha, pun intended) that the column on VDare has a picture of Russian ladies on top (not sure if that comes with the Ann Coulter column, but well worth your time.)

OK, may as well include it, I don't see any copyright:

Anyway, (concentrate, concentrate!) Miss Coulter does a great comparison, as we have also, in a paragraph in this post about the "Neocons" of comparing the leftists opinions about Russia now (they are evil!) versus during the entire time it was the Soviet Union (give Communism a chance!).

Just a snippet from the great column:
Have you guys heard of the Evil Empire? Now Democrats are hypersensitive to a Russian leader’s flaws?

Liberals were cool with the show trials, the alliance with Hitler, the gulags, the forced starvations, the shooting down of American planes and goose-stepping through Eastern Europe.

But that was when the Russian leader was Joseph Stalin or Nikita Khrushchev—not the beast Putin!

Back then, liberals were spying for Stalin (Julius Rosenberg’s code name: “Liberal“), the U.S. president was calling the bloodthirsty dictator “Uncle Joe,” and The New York Times was covering up Stalin’s infamous crimes. In the storied history of fake news, the Times’ Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer Prize for his false reports denying the Ukrainian famine, in which more than 7 million people were deliberately starved to death.

As far as the Times is concerned, those were Russia’s halcyon days!

Back when Russia was actually threatening America with nuclear annihilation, Jimmy Carter warned Americans about their “inordinate fear of communism.” Sting sang that “the Russians love their children, too.”

OK, that last part, that was what I'd thought about a number of times in the past - Sting's lyric from his song "Russians" from back in 1985. OK, who's Sting? Yeah, one of those one-name musical artists like Madonna, or Bono, whom PeakStupidity reprimanded heavily in the past for running his damn mouth about stuff he doesn't understand, which is the crux of this post also - just Ann Coulter beat me to it, by that much!

Here are the lyrics in question:
Mister Krushchev said, "We will bury you."
I don't subscribe to this point of view.
It'd be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Russians love their children too.

Of course the Russians love their children, Sting, as almost all parents do, but that has no bearing on your statement about the Cold War, which is why you should have just concentrated on the good melody and your great bass guitar. Mr. Krushchev indeed said "we will bury you" in a speech back in the 1950's, as he pounded his stinky shoe on the podium (musta been pissed). We thought, especially by the late '80's, that this guy was wrong, but the way things are going now, with the lefty infiltration of media, government, and education, he may have been right. We may yet get buried, just not in the way we imagined during the time of Sting's song. OK to the point,

Listen, Sting, the Russians could have loved their children to death back during the Soviet Union/ Cold War era, but what did that have to do with the fact that they had no control over the Soviet government? Back then, that was in contrast to the situation in the United States (I can't say that now, sadly). So, if Mr. Krushchev and the inner party had decided to go ahead and try to bury us via the use of ballistic missiles tipped with thermonuclear weapons, the Russians and Americans could have kissed their children lots, but many of us would also have been kissing our asses goodbye. You need control of the usually psychopathic people that rise to the top of any big government - they don't give a rat's ass about your children, see?

Now, all that said, I forgot to mention that this guy Sting was a member of a 3-piece band called The Police before his really good solo career. It seems that whenever the lead singer is also the bass player, the sound is just really great. Think of Rush (Geddy Lee on bass) and The Beatles (McCartney on bass).

Rather than post a youtube embed of "The Russians, in keeping with PeakStupidity's incessant lecturing about the melody and sound being much more important than lyrics anyway, we present The Police's "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da":

Because the bass guitar makes this song as great as it is, you've just gotta have some decent woofers to really enjoy this.

I'll give the 50 to 1. I'll round up my 50 feminazis for my Russian and y'all round up your own 50. Don't follow me - I'm headed for Madison, Wisconsin.

I like the idea of more cordial relations with Russia. Can we do a huge 1-for-1 exchange and send all of our feminazi wymyn to Russia in exchange for bringing Russian women over here? How about we send 2 feminazis over for 1 Russian woman? 3 feminazis? Do I hear 4??

I think part of it is how stupid a lot of them are. The tattoos I mean.

Once upon a time a sailor got a naked chick tattooed somewhere, one that he could make dance by flexing or something.

That has something.

Someone getting Pikachu or Goku (characters from anime cartoons popular in the US over the past few decades? That's just idiotic.

Plus occasionally you see photos on the internet of dubious reproduction of English words and phrases.

The same thing goes for Westerners who get Asian pictograms tattooed on themselves. I've seen a couple where what they got tattooed wasn't anything like what they thought it said.

Guess some Chinese guy could make a funny web site with dumb ass foreign devils. If they did funny stuff that it.

One small tattoo on an ankle or something wouldn't bother me, but I just saw a lady today with otherwise very nice legs, but one was tattooed up as far as I could see ...

Something interesting about that photo of the women, is that none of them have tattoos.

Somewhere along the way I've acquired a distaste for them.

I guess it is my inner cool kid, when something gets trendy I sneer at it. It's good to be aware of exactly what you feel and why.

But dammit, I'm always right; so it really isn't cool.
