Are EU and U.S. Blind to ‘Putin’s Right Wing’ Manipulations?

Front-National        In one stroke of ‘mad genius,’ Russia’s Putin has managed to: 1) Shake up the European establishment through his support of dozens of winning extreme right wing candidates; 2) Further weaken the EU towards separation; 3) Dash the new Ukraine leader’s hope for EU partnerships; and 4) Left the United States alone in its quest to get Western Europeans to agree on more sanctions against Russia.

In short, as he has Europe’s Far Right idolizing him, Putin’s almost invisible strings moved the world closer to acknowledging that by annexing Crimea, and threatening a takeover of Eastern Ukraine, he has started World War III.

Seemingly oblivious of his motives, and hoping to secure stronger business interests, Western European leaders flock toward Putin. But from their usurpations under Russia during the Cold War, Eastern European nations cringe in fear at his manipulations. And looking past the apparent stupidity of their Western neighbors, they cry out to the United States for protection.

Several commentators point out that Russia directly financed the rise of the ‘new right’ in recent EU elections.  Right-Wing-Terror-risingEven Andrew Higgins, in The New York Times admits:  “Russia has added to its allure through the financing, mostly with corporate money, of media, research groups and other European organizations that promote Moscow’s take on the world.

“Even among far-right groups, the sympathy for Russia and suspicion of Washington are . . . Focused on clawing back power from the European Union’s bureaucracy, . . . at odds with policy makers in Brussels and the conventional wisdom of European elites.

But they also reflect a general crumbling of public trust in the beliefs and institutions that have dominated Europe since the end of World War II, including the Continent’s relationship with the United States.”

In his  discussion of ‘Putin’s Far-Right Admirers All Over Europe,’ Andrew Foxall points out: “Russia does not just gain from its propaganda being legitimized in European political institutions. It also furthers its geopolitical designs to destabilize Europe by seeing pro-Russian politicians and governments come to power on the Continent.”

Different kinds of wars––hot, cold, propaganda, spiritual, etc.––go on all over the world, but as First World War angels of The Lord teach, one must understand how the forces of evil work within each of these wars.

Far Right Western Europeans claim particular concerned about what they see as the moral decline in the United States. On the one hand, Satan tempts individuals and nations to revel in certain sins. On the other hand, he raises other people and nations to proudly criticize the revelers.

Only God’s people, faithfully praying for their nation, can turn around such temptations.  Christians should pray for their leaders, not because they agree with them politically, but because that prayer is the only force on earth that can reverse schemes of evil:  “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way (2 Thessalonians 2: 7.)”

The major problem for false accusers is that pride is a greater sin: “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16: 18).” Other sins can be repented of and forgiven, but ultimately, pride was Satan’s unforgivable sin and will be his downfall!
