Putin Backs European Anti-Immigrant Neo-Fascists. Will He Set US Policy? Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
Update, July 26: 11:00 am:

A commentator below has posted a link to a news story about the latest apparent ISIS inspired atrocity, the beheading of an 86-year old priest in France. This gives rise to the question whether there is anyone on this planet who has done more to help ISIS recruitment efforts than Donald Trump's alleged good friend and supporter Vladimir Putin, who has been creating countless new jihadists by propping up the brutal Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad by military force and thereby putting the security of the American people in even greater danger.

My original post follows:

In the past day, there have been several news stories to the effect that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, with whom Donald Trump reportedly has close ties, based on Trump's extensive business interests in Russia and some kind words he has had to say about Putin, may have tried to influence the US presidential election by arranging to hack into thousands of DNC emails and releasing ones which could prove embarrassing to the Hillary Clinton campaign to Wikileaks on the eve of the DNC convention.

The Hill which is not exactly a mouthpiece for the Clinton campaign and has arguably run more stories about Hillary's own email problems than any other single media outlet, reports as follows on July 25:

"The leak of 20,000 stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is almost certainly an attempt by the Russian government to influence the presidential election, security experts say.

Such a maneuver would be unprecedented and is stirring speculation that Russia is trying to ensure that Republican Donald Trump wins the White House.

'I think we are probably in full scale, "Yes, this is Russia trying to influence the election so they can have the person they prefer at the top of the American government," said James Healy, a director at the Atlantic Council who has worked on cyber defenses at the White House."

Because of the conceivably great influence that Putin could have over US immigration policy if he succeeds in arguably helping to determine the results of the US election and installing a possible friend and supporter in the White House, it is instructive to look at Putin's record of backing extreme right wing, neo-fascist anti-immigrant politicians in Europe.

USA Today reported as follows about a year ago (on June 25, 2015):

See:

Russia and Europe's extremist parties find common cause

www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/06/25/russia-flirts-with-far-right-parties/29099107

"Russia and anti-immigrant extremist parties across Europe are forging an unlikely alliance over their shared antipathy for the European Union and NATO and admiration for President Vladimir Putin's strongman style of leadership."

Among right wing extremist leaders with well documented authoritarian, anti-immigrant positions who are mentioned in the above article as having received support from Putin are Viktor Orban of Hungary's Fidesz party and France's National Front party led by Marine Le Pen, as well as far right parties in Germany, Austria, the UK and other European countries.

Europe's far right and Putin

(I am sorry - finding reliable Slate links is not always as easy as one would wish: please go to Google for find this story.)

If Trump takes over our government with any degree of help from Russia's strongman, would Putin's support for right wing extremist anti-immigrant policies in Europe (though not necessarily in his own country, as will be discussed in a forthcoming post) be replicated in America?

Shouldn't our immigration policies be determined by the American people? Do we need help from a foreign dictator?

    Looks like your superpowers are growing Roger Now, it is every your post is followed by the heinous crime of fake mozlem "refugees".

    This time these violent animals behead elderly priest during the service in church. No wonder Trump is gaining votes in poll. He is 100% right on this issue.


    Elderly priest, 86, is 'beheaded' by two ISIS knifemen shouting 'Allahu Akbar' after they took nuns and worshippers hostage at French church

    Way to go Roger. Way to go.

    Thank you for your post once again highlighting the threat that ISIS and its barbaric agenda of atrocities pose to all humanity.

    If there is one person on earth who can be said to bear more responsibility for the rise of ISIS in Syria than anyone else on earth except Syrian tyrant, torturer and mass murderer Bashar Al-Assad himself, it would be Donald Trump's alleged good friend and supporter Vladimir Putin, who has been propping up Assad militarily and thereby creating more and more jihadists in reaction, while destroying all US-backed moderate, non-jihadist opposition to Assad.

    Donald Trump has pledged to wipe ISIS off the face of the earth and that is one of the very few areas where I agree with him. Our government is not doing enough to eliminate this scourge of humanity.

    But Donald's promise rings hollow in the light of everything that his reported buddy, Putin, is doing to support Assad, who is arguably the greatest recruiting tool that ISIS has ever had.

    What is your plan to eliminate ISIS? Is suggesting that all Muslims on earth could be terrorists, as Donald Trump has been doing, going to hurt ISIS? Or is that helping its recruitment efforts even more?

    Again, "Desi supremacist" Unregistered 222 trying to make a point about Mexican immigrants... What this moron cannot figure out is that Mexican-Americans and Mexican nationals (legal residents and undocumented people) ARE THE ETHNIC MAJORITY in the State of Texas, thus nothing new about dealing with criminal aliens...in fact, one key legal adviser of Trump dealing with immigration issues happens to be an associate of a law firm that represents aliens that have criminal records!...hypocrisy at its best.

    Perhaps this firm should offer its professional legal services to those criminals and ask Trump Enterprises to cover the expenses.

    [Note:I have deleted the last paragraph of this post because it contained an unsubstantiated personal attack on one of the other people commenting above.

    I would respectfully remind everyone commenting on this site that discussion of the issues are always welcome; personal attacks on other people posting comments are not. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law]
