Peter Hitchens 'Why I Like Vladimir Putin' at the University of Bristol

I put this out in the Guardian reader's section, Comment is Free, CIF, but the Guardian moderators promptly removed it. In the small print below it said that it did not confirm to community standards. At this point I had only a few articles removed by the Guardian moderators, but I was baffled as to why they would remove this article, especially as Peter Hitchens is part of the establishment and hardly radical. But after a while I got more articles removed and I began to feel uneasy about this because the Guardian, a newspaper of the left, wouldn't let me put out anything left. It felt like Big Brother at work.

I then went online and found out that this had happened to thousands of Guardian readers and this was the reason why the CIF section was so dominated by raging right wingers without much comeback from the left. The left simply weren't being allowed to post. I eventually ended up on permanent moderation where I couldn't get anything out of substance.

In this clip below Peter Hitchens says why he likes Putin and is baffled why the West is picking a fight with him. He can only think that Russian under Putin is an independent nation which is not under Western control. But why is that such a crime, and one that means risking the lives of billions of people in a useless war? The West is truly evil, where the controlling neoliberals are just right wingers who are relaxed about gays.

In this article below Peter Hichens says that he is surrounded by people who think they can win a war with Russia. He says they have no idea how bad war is. It is shocking to see the West, who we are constantly told stands for freedom, democracy, fairness, and against anyone deemed bad, is itself truly evil to the core. The industrial-military-banking complex has sucked $trillions from the tax payer pretending it protects them when more than likely it will kill them. A massive scam run by crooks. Tearing up the Middle East was easy for them and doing the same to Europe is not as far fetched as my friends think. The US neoliberals are thinking the unthinkable.

PETER HITCHENS: Forget 'evil' Putin - we are the bloodthirsty warmongers


We think we are the heroes, setting out with brave hearts to confront the Dark Lord, and free the saintly Ukrainians from his wicked grasp.

This is all the most utter garbage. Since 1989, Moscow, the supposed aggressor, has – without fighting or losing a war – peacefully ceded control over roughly 180 million people, and roughly 700,000 square miles of valuable territory.

The EU (and its military wing, Nato) have in the same period gained control over more than 120 million of those people, and almost 400,000 of those square miles.

Until a year ago, Ukraine remained non-aligned between the two great European powers. But the EU wanted its land, its 48 million people (such a reservoir of cheap labour!) its Black Sea coast, its coal and its wheat.

So first, it spent £300 million (some of it yours) on anti-Russian ‘civil society’ groups in Ukraine.

Then EU and Nato politicians broke all the rules of diplomacy and descended on Kiev to take sides with demonstrators who demanded that Ukraine align itself with the EU.
