The western mass-media costing on service of liberal ideas have begun information war against the Euroasian ideology and its carriers in Russia
Some days ago the Canadian newspaper «National Post» has published article named «Russia’s new imperialists» which has been devoted the Eurasian ideas. More precisely, to the misunderstood scrappy data, deformed in a prism of liberal profanation and the western alienation. In the inflamed mind of the author of this publication all marks of Russian history have mixed up and the westerner modernist VasiliyTatischev became the Eurasian thinker and «the Eurasianist debate goes back to the time of CatherinetheGreat».
If to leave out from the personal judgements of owners, it is possible to find out with ease that the newspaper had expressed ideological engagement, though did maneuvers before elections, acting as that on the party of conservatives, on the party of libe
But it’s only the beginning. Getting data from doubtful sources in kind of pseudoscientific researches of AndreasUmland who takes empiric knowledge for his works about eurasianism from the air, the author deliberately creates an impartial picture of modern Eurasian ideas, for reliability inserting into article of the citation from AlexanderDugin and passages about a life of the LevGumilev.
Author wrote, that Dugin has «admiration of ReinhardHeydrich - one of the chief organizers of the Holocaust - and he is reputed to be close to the Russian Prime Minister and former president, VladimirPutin». Further goes about visit of the leader of the Eurasian movement to South Ossetia and smooth transition to that «Eurasian ideology ignores the basis of modern scholarship, as we know it in the West. That is because a growing number of Russian scholars reject Western empiricism and the epistemological assumptions of our scholarship. Not surprisingly, Eurasian writers are sought out by larger and larger segments of Russian society and the ruling elite».
Further he tries to understand Gumilev’s ideas about ethnogenesis and passionarity cycles, but considers it as absurdity that has not prevented to publish Gumilev’s book in million circulations, and «when Vladimir Putin visited Gumilev University he said that Lev Gumilev was «the greatest Eurasianist of our times» and that "his scholarly works are a brilliant contribution ... to thinking about history.»
Adequately to understand the reason of occurrence of this publication, the knowledge that the western gnoseological racism which also called liberal democracy, does not take into consideration any alternative sights on world order (whether it be the position of Russia, China or Latin America, with their rich cultural and historical heritage which is not entered in narrow frameworks of sociohistorical process of the West) will be insufficiently. It is quite good to look at tools of this gnoseological racism – those who helps to fool the western inhabitants and with instructive idiocy continues to sow liberalism seeds.
The author is GeoffreyClarfield and he is a Foreign Affairs Advisor to the «Canadian Coalition for Democracies», founded in 2003. The term of NGO was born in the corridors of power of Washington, and the Canadian democrats are brother-in-arms with such funds as «Freedom House» against Iran, for example, and another various faces of authoritarianism. However, it has not prevented for the editorial board to offer unreserved support to Israel during its conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon during 2006.
The matter is that the owner of the newspaper is the known media magnate and Zionist DavidAsper, son of IsraelAsper who died in 2003. By the way, before 2000 «National Post» was part of «Hollinger International», a media empire of ConradBlack. Back in 2000, Conrad Black and Israel Asper have met during Bilderberg meeting in Brusells, when Black have a lot of troubles with his newspapers. By the way, Black has conservative visions, but Izzy Asper was leader of Manitoba Liberal Party, connected with CFR and similar structures.
To feed up western narratives based on fears in front of Russia it is hardly possible to name this attempt successful.
But if to leave out from the personal judgements of owners, it is possible to find out with ease that the newspaper had expressed ideological engagement, though did maneuvers before elections, acting as that on the party of conservatives, on the party of liberals. The basic accent became on foreign policy, which as at the U.S. republicans and democrats in many points coincided. The first big scandal has inflamed in May 2006, when the newspaper has compared Iran to Germany of Hitler. The story proved to be false, but not before it had been picked up by a variety of other news media and generated comment from world leaders. Comments on the story by the Canadian Prime Minister StephenHarper caused Iran to summon Canada’s ambassador to Tehran for an explanation. On May 24, 2006, the editor-in-chief of the newspaper, DougKelly, published an apology for the story on Page 2, admitting that it was false and the «National Post» had not exercised enough caution or checked enough sources.
Canadian Islamic Congress has been active monitoring media coverage for anti-Muslim or anti-Islam sentiment from1998 has singled out the «National Post», saying the paper «consistently is No. 1» as an anti-Islam media outlet. But the newspaper feels hostility as we see, not only to the Muslim world. In sight of liberal journalists there is Russia with its national interests which David Asper & Co wish to reduce to imperialistic prejudices. The reason is covered in other pillar of liberalism - avidity and greed.
«When we hear about a claim by Russia to oil wealth that we believe to be in Canadian waters, when we hear that it has planted a Russian flag under the ice of the North Pole… we need to understand that these are not random events», - wrote Mr. Clarfield. Canadian journalist afraid because of oil, placed under the arctic waters! And that it «journalistic investigation» was not such trivial, he’s summarises: «They are an expression of Eurasianism, the new ideology of 21st-century Russia. It is the latest version of Russian nationalism. It is hierarchical, imperial, expansive, militaristic and non-democratic. It celebrates and endorses the authoritarian continuity between Soviet Russia and the present regime. We ignore it at our peril».
Unlike liberals with their troubles, we, Eurasians, do not ignore the western ideas and carefully study their errors once again to show their inconsistency. To feed up western narratives based on fears in front of Russia it is hardly possible to name this attempt successful. And that who will deliberately defend a failure course of liberalism, and that who on ignorance will join these ideas, sooner or later it is necessary to answer. As at us tells «ignorance of the law does not relieve from responsibility».
