Vladimir Putin: Russia does not need minorities

Sunday, May 26, 2013

On February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia.

He said:

"In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, for instance, then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law. Russia does not need these minorities. These minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of many minorities. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities who come here are NOT Russians!"

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a standing ovation that lasted for five full minutes!

This is totally right for minorities coming from outside the territory of Russia.

But in the autonomous republics within the Russian Federation such as Udmurtia, Tatarstan etc etc, it is the Russian settlers who should learn the language fo the nation they occupy the territory.

The purveyors of multikulti in Christian lands - the Joosky Tribe members read it, and they immediately get a heart attack, and viola, they croak on the spot.

Clever, very clever, Mr. Putin....

Good point.

It is a good Nationalist perspective. But, does Russia respect the ethnic majority rights of it's former "colonies" (Soviet Socialist Republics - SSR) to determine their own citizenship, language, cultural and demographic right to self-determination ? Does Putin apply the same standard to the Baltic Republics or Ukraine ?

Inclusive is the repatriation of the former Soviet colonial settlers to their native lands.

Irrelevant BULLSHIT.
Only Russia proper is the agenda, and NOT neighboring countries.
Transparent, stupid SHILL.
You ain't intelligent enough for these readers.

My, my such strong, vulgar language for an open-minded, cultured person. It seems as though the comments contribute to the conversation.

For the record, " ain't " :'t

"Although widely disapproved as nonstandard and more common in the habitual speech of the less educated, ain't in senses 1 and 2 is flourishing in American English."

Actually it is us - you and I - who determine language, as a matter of consensus, both in the adoption of words and definitions. "Ain't" was historically proper in this way: "I ain't." It was Dickens who expanded and popularized its use in the form of "we ain't" and "it ain't." Doesn't matter - Americans have never cared too much for British formality.

those who are 'easily' offended by this-are obviously muslims...
and those who get incited enough to illicit 'violent behavior' for words like this-are just plain 'bad people' anyway-and should 'Never' be put into positions of power-those who read or hear putin's words-and are angry enough to kill someone over them-are Not Good People-and should never be put into law making or any official positions of power.
