Strange Bedfellows: Teabaggers and a Militant Russian Nationalist
Igor Panarin, a radical Russian professor, has been predicting for years that the United States would collapse sometime during the year 2010. The shattered remains of America will be divided into about five or six regions.
Southwestern states because of their heavy Hispanic populations will merge with Mexico. Alaska will revert back to Russian control. The poorest of the Midwestern states will probably form their own nation, and the northern Midwest will either merge with Canada or form its own nation. The northeast will become part of “global capital and finance” based in London. And the West Coast will become part of China, of course, because of the large Chinese population and the fact that those Left-Coasters are using computers that were made in China.
The above tinfoil-hat rantings don’t have much of an audience even inside Russia, let alone anywhere else. But now the absent-minded professor has found a new cult following inside the United States. Guess who.
I guess these pitiful teabirthers need all the friends they can get. And since they obviously hate their own country and everything it stands for, they might as well hitch themselves to a Russian crackpot who wants America to collapse.
Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily (Home of the Afterbirther™), is one of Panarin’s followers. Farah says he isn’t “buying into Panarin's entire prediction” but says “there's something to it.”
Panarin made a recent trip to the United States and was surrounded by worshippers in Houston and Washington, D.C.
Question of the day: What’s the difference between a Greek Orthodox priest and a Muslim terrorist? Tomato, Tomahto, right?
Hell, them furriners with their dorky hats and funny robes, they all look alike. And what the hail are they doin’ here anyways?
In Tampa, a Greek Orthodox priest, who was visiting the U.S., got lost and asked Marine reservist Jasen D. Bruce for directions. The Marine conked the priest on the head with a tire iron and then chased him for several blocks, shouting “Terrorist!”
Now, what was all that liberal claptrap about military recruiters lowering their acceptance standards.
