Occupier Thanks Former Soviet Citizen for 'Converting' Him to Capitalism, Pro-Israel, Pro-USA

Here, a man who was born and lived for decades in the Soviet Union successfully converts an Occupier to Capitalism, to understand Israel's side of the Middle East conflict, and to pro-American ideals all within a 15 minute time frame. He even thanks the man afterwards.

Give props where they're due, at least the Occupier was willing to hear the man out without screaming in his face, unlike almost every single one of them.

The video was shot during the May Day protests in New York City on May 1, 2012, but is definitely worth posting now for people to view.

  • Fortunately, the United States has collected the best Russian immigrants. (Except for the occasional mobster.)

    And it's a disgrace that an American kid can graduate high school without knowing the difference between a democracy and a constitutional republic.

  • The UN and the British Empire chopped the entire region to pieces. Israel is only one example. The result, Israel is a cutting edge high-tech space age society, surrounded by 3rd world throwbacks.

    India and Pakistan are another example. An imaginary line was drawn in the sand, and it divided an Islamic nation from a non-Islamic nation. The result? India is booming, exporting doctors and engineers and scientists. Pakistan is exporting what?

      2-3 College students pay 1 teachers yearly salary. And that teacher, teaches "lets say" 300 students at a time. Where does the rest of the money go?

      Idiots like you, refuse to make society any better... half of the kids start their independent life with $100 grand in dept to the system, banks own you from the day you make your 1st step.

    It's a shame that American academia is infested with Leninist/Marxist profs that infect the minds of college students these days. Or, we get occupiers that have high school diplomas, or lack-thereof, and know absolutely nothing about what they are "protesting"

  • The phrase "box of rocks" comes to mind. This tool is probably a nice kid in some ways, but he's the poster child for the intellectually impotent young leftists whose idea of "debate" is to reach into a grab bag of shopworn slogans and recite them verbatim without any idea of what they mean or how they fit into the current argument. See how this idiot just picks out keywords from the other guy's sentences and delivers a slogan which loosely relates to that keyword. I've argue More..

  • I don't believe that kid knows what the hell he is talking about. They want change change change but have no clue how or what to change it to. Oh but don't keep changing laws...unless they make it so these lazy assholes don't have to work. The kid is like all the other Occupy people, conformist, brain washed, idiots. This Russian understands how good we really have it here in the US, god bless the US.

    • @rmacl Okay, sure. Just briefly, the Jews control a lion's share of three key entities: the mass media, the U.S. government, and the banks. They use this control to portray Israel as a victim (despite its many abuses) and to buy off American policy makers. This power insures Israel's vast funding and political support.

      I'm not sure they want a piece of the pie w/o working for it. I would say they want equal access to opportunity, which even various SCOTUS's have agreed with.

      The OWS bunch are not politically motivated enough to affect change. They're more like a weak catalyst.

      Most recorded history is probably all BS anyway. If we cant believe what people are telling us now then why should we believe what people said back then? Look at the misinformation from the last presidency which resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of people. And we're supposed to believe what's been recorded by man for the last 1000 years? I call BS.

    • @robbinh00d You just didn't bother to hear the talker's point, did you?
      He was never describing the "horrors of a socialist and/or communist regime". Heck, communism or socialism is a great idea, actually. It's just a fucking impossible thing to achieve with us humans.

      He explained clearly that they were just an easy cover for totalitarianism. An "opium to the people" instead of religion to get them hooked and start a good ol' revolution.
      It's extremely easy to shout &qu More..

  • Anyone who has lived under the Soviet Union or even Communist China, knows how much better Capitalism is, even with its flaws.

    Only people who have never experienced anything else seem to make it sound like the worst thing in the world. Capitalism has its flaws, but its far better than most alternatives.

    In Russia, you will disappear forever if you speak out against the government.
