This Is How Much Russians Hate America…

American-Flag-Doormat-Video-Screenshot-300x300

In Russia, shopping malls are putting out American flag doormats for people to wipe their feet on, and there are stores that are selling toilet paper with the American flag imprinted on it.  Surveys show that Russian attitudes toward the U.S. are now even worse than they were during the end of the Cold War, and ordinary Russians are blaming America for everything from the overthrow of the Ukrainian government to the collapse of the ruble.  The Russian government has just authorized a new military doctrine which identifies the United States as a top threat, and commentators on Russian television are using extremely strong language to condemn the United States.  In fact, one of the most prominent Russian commentators has referred to the United States as “the kingdom of the Antichrist“.  To the Russians, a new Cold War has erupted, and they very clearly view the United States as enemy number one.

But in the U.S., things are completely different.  Most Americans feel absolutely no animosity toward Russians or their government.  And most Americans do not consider Russia to be a “threat” whatsoever.  In this country, “the Cold War” is a relic from the past, and our relationship with Russia is very low on the list of political issues.  Most people seem to feel that the current tension between the U.S. and Russia is a temporary thing that will fade away eventually.  Nobody is making Russian flag doormats or selling toilet paper with Russian flags on it.

So most Americans have a really hard time grasping what is going on inside Russia right now.  Even if they have heard about how much Russians hate us, they don’t really understand how this could be possible.

And most Americans have no idea that the Russians even have a special derogatory word for us now.  The following is an excerpt from a recent New York Observer article

If you talk to a Russian about the international political situation, sooner or later you will be informed that there is a country in North America that you never heard of. Its name is ‘Pindosia,’ ‘Pindostan’ or, more officially, ‘United States of Pindostan,’ and you will be told that one part of it, called Alaska , used to belong to Russia. Part of the word – ‘stan’ – stands for underdeveloped state, as in ‘ Pakistan ’, ‘ Kazakhstan ’ or ‘ Uzbekistan.’ The citizens of this country in plural form are called ‘pindoses’, in singular – ‘pindos’.

So exactly what is a “pindos”?  Personally, I found the definition to be quite surprising

The word ‘pindos’ in Russian is highly offensive, and defines a helpless creature that is a product of a very bad educational system, one who can survive in this world only with the help of different gadgets.

The animosity that Russians have for the United States runs very deep, and it has been growing over time.

In fact, back in the 1990s, 80 percent of Russians actually had a positive attitude toward America…

Today, according to the respected Moscow ‘Levada Center,’ which measures political sentiment in Russian society, 74% of Russians have negative feelings towards the USA . It hasn’t always been like this – in the 1990s, 80% had positive attitude toward America.

Right now 76% of Russians hate Obama personally and only meager 2% like him. In 2009 only 12 % of Russians had extremely negative feelings towards Obama.

What a difference a couple of decades makes.

Today, anti-American sentiment is everywhere.  This is especially true in Moscow.  As I mentioned above, you can now find American flag doormats outside of shopping malls and business establishments

Russian business owners are using American flags as doormats as resentment over U.S. economic sanctions puts the squeeze on traders.

Customers have been filmed wiping their feet on the fabled stars and stripes as they enter and exit stores across Moscow, as struggling retailers take a hopeless swipe at their Cold War adversaries.

Posted below is video footage that shows one example of this phenomenon…

And as economic conditions get even worse in Russia, this anti-American sentiment will continue to grow.  At this point it doesn’t even matter if Americans are really to blame for something or not.  If something goes wrong, the finger will be pointed at the United States.

This includes the staggering decline in the price of oil.  Many Russians are firmly convinced that a U.S./Saudi conspiracy is behind it.  Even Russian President Vladimir Putin appears to be buying into this line of thinking…

“We all see the lowering of oil prices. There’s lots of talk about what’s causing it. Could it be an agreement between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia to punish Iran and affect the economies of Russia and Venezuela? It could.”

And of course it isn’t just the Russians that are thinking this way.  As Mike Whitney recently pointed out, other prominent world leaders are also blaming the U.S. and Saudi Arabia for the oil price crash…

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro seems to think so. In a recent interview that appeared in Reuters, Maduro said he thought the United States and Saudi Arabia wanted to drive down oil prices “to harm Russia.”

Bolivian President Evo Morales agrees with Maduro and told journalists at RT that: “The reduction in oil prices was provoked by the US as an attack on the economies of Venezuela and Russia. In the face of such economic and political attacks, the nations must be united.”

Most Americans simply do not understand that anti-American sentiment is running extremely high all over the globe right now.

A few decades ago, the United States was one of the most loved nations on the entire planet.

Now it is one of the most hated.

When it comes to foreign policy, Barack Obama has made mistake after mistake and he has been alienating lots of people.

And as far as the Russians are concerned, the era of “friendship” with the United States is long gone.  The trust that had been established between the two governments is totally broken, and they now consider us to be their number one strategic enemy.

So what does this mean for our future?

    The Russian and American People share the same deep antipathy for the US government. Don’t let a few bigots color your perception. People are for People. It’s government that is the problem and the People’s responsibility to reign in our criminal government.

  • Mike_Mann

    What an excellent idea! Maybe we can import some of these mats into the U.S. to show our solidarity with Russians. The only modification I would make is to superimpose the U.S. flag with the Star of David, which would be showing exactly who it is our government is serving.

      I really love your comment….

      • Mike_Mann

        Thanks cama9, it’s always refreshing to meet a fellow traveler on that lonely road called Truth. Using the Russian mats and toilet paper is a great idea for releasing some of that frustration that has built up over many years’ worth of living under the rule of people who are destroying our country.

        Should those of us who are awake ever learn how to unite and take back our country, how about we round up all of our “representatives” that have made the obligatory trip to Israel to pay homage to their masters by donning the beanie and placing their heads or hands against the Wailing Wall and put them on trial for treason (for starters).

        We can then send the unrepentant, guilty ones back to Israel, super glue their heads to that Wall, and pull it down on the whole bunch of them.

    I very doubt if the average Russian hates the average US citizen. They perhaps don’t have a high opinion of the Washington degenerates that are also a threat to the American people and everyone else on the planet.

    • Dr NoNo

      The world over hates our corrupted government. Americans are simply sleeping.

      “Anyone who has followed the ongoing crisis in Eastern Europe and Ukraine knows the very hostile view that the establishment news media and Washington political class have of President Vladimir Putin of Russia and his policies. In the halls of Congress and in the mainstream press -almost every night on Fox News – serious charges are proffered against Russia’s president and his latest outrages. Sanctions and bellicose measures get enacted by the House and Senate overwhelmingly, with only meagre opposition and almost no serious discussion.”

      I dunno, theyve had this propaganda shoved at them for 60 years.
      Kinda like kids in Americans schools are coming out thinking Obama is great, republicans are mean and taxes are good for the economy.

      The Russian govt Im sure is the ones printing these things.

      • RebelPatriot

        They have probably has some of those views since 1918 when Woodrow Wilson sent troops to invade Russia during the Bolshevik revolution.

        • Mystical_Groove_American

          and Woodrow Wilsom was a Dimocrat dipshit like you and your buddy Obama.

    From watching You Tube videos of Russian car crashes, meteors crashing down on their towns and East Ukrainians being slaughtered by US backed Kiev Nazi animals, I’ve come to know the Russian people. They are strong, independent and honorable and I like them. It’s a shame a few nuts in our government who make US foreign policy has to ruin our reputation.

    Here’s a simple way to understand the Russian people. Go to You Tube and type in Russian car crashes. Anytime there’s a crash the Russian people get out of their cars to help the injured. They ALL stop, not just one or two. In America maybe 20% of cars stop to help. But we know what A holes the cops are and that they will be there in two minutes so that’s why most don’t stop. Now in China! Holy crap! Not one slant eyed dog eater will stop and help. They will actually run you down if you are lying in the road. They aren’t even human beings over there.

    • Nexusfast123

      It is a real shame as the Russians have made big effort to create an open economy and trade. They are now aligning in a big way with China. Washington has not figured out that threatening people will not end in an outcome you expect.

      • Mystical_Groove_American

        Who have we threatened and how?

          Are you on meds? NATO is surrounding Russia.

            thats tells nothing. And what are they doing while engaged in this fictitious “surrounding of Russia.”?

          • Nexusfast123

            Hundreds of military bases around the world and around Russia.

            http://www.globalresearch.ca/encircling-russia-us-nato-military-bases-in-eastern-europe/15824

            Moving missiles and offensive equipment to the borders of Russia.

            Fermenting unrest in Chechnya and Georgia and now the Ukraine.

            The Russian military posture is purely defensive but be aware that if attacked they will go tactical nukes and then strategic.

          • Mystical_Groove_American

            HUNDREDS of military bases ROFL

  • rybo1

    What a rubbish article. What a naive article. The Untied States, Saudi Arabia, Nato, along with the EU are doing their utmost to bring Russia to its knees economically. Blatant anti-Russian propaganda is overwhelming. It’s little wonder that Russians are filled with disgust concerning the US. The evil empire is right in your backyard and right under your collective noses.

    Sadly
    its not the end result, thats war. Im sure these idiots would welcome
    war with us if theyve been lied to, and buy this misinformation that
    well.

  • Mystical_Groove_American

    And WOW, Im barely awake, I just caught this:
    “Today, according to the respected Moscow ‘Levada Center,’ which measures political sentiment in Russian society, 74%
    of Russians have negative feelings towards the USA . It hasn’t always been like this – in the 1990s, 80% had positive attitude toward America.
    Right now 76% of Russians hate Obama personally and only meager 2% like him. In 2009 only 12 % of Russians had extremely negative feelings towards Obama”

    Since when does Obama = America? He is hated all over the globe. That doesnt mean they all hate America necessarily. it says they hate Obama PERSONALLY.

    Ill bet they didnt have this attitude toward Bush or Clintoon

  • cama9

    The sanctions against Russia are an act of WAR! and our moron government can’t seem to get into enough of them. It needs to grow up and once again adopt the foreign policy expounded by John Quincy Adams: “America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy.” We need to oust all the neocons!
    As for Pindostan – since most students go through the US govt indoctrination centers (public schools), it’s inevitable we’ve become a nation of borgs… or sheeple since that’s what this site is about… and the name seems to fit.

  • Bruce Prentis

    .I just watched two commentators on Fox news just extoll how inept Putin is for not understanding economic policy and that’s why Russia’s economy is in such dire straights. I wanted to puke.

    You can put the blame squarely on the US administration and the UN puppets for Russia’s demise. It really pissed me off to hear such BULLSHIT.Like we are so stupid to buy that utter crap. They really try to insult our intelligence don’t they.

    As far as the flags being used for doormats, well, I can surely understand that. I flat refuse to say the pledge of allegiance anymore. Especially to the maritime Roman Law flag. That whole “…. And to the Republic for which it stands” HELL NO!!!! I refuse to swear allegiance to that. What it stands for is outright deceit, smoke and mirrors, and criminal. It disgusts me anymore what this government has become and I suppose after “waking up and being enlightened” to the lies and learning what this country has been. We have been so damn deceived. It angers me to no end to know just the lies that I am aware of and I”m positive that there’s a whole lot more lies I am not aware of. It outright sickens me. I find it hard anymore to find happiness. I was much happier before being enlightened. That’s for damn sure. What they say is true, ignorance IS bliss

    Give me one of those doormats and TP, I’ll use them too.
