Russian immigrants joining Republican Party. Hmmmm. Now why would that happen?

by editor on January 4, 2011

You live under an oppressive leftist dictatorship. You escape. You finally make it to America. You look at the two major parties and decide to join one rather than the other. Why would that be?

Those who've lived under Communism erect statues to Ronald Reagan, not Democrats.

SILive.com has the Republican ramifications:

Many Russian immigrants to the “red borough” of Staten Island are flocking to the Republican Party, saying that the national Democrats’ “socialistic” policies remind them too much of the top-down oligarchy they fled in their native land.

With many of the borough’s Russian arrivees already owning businesses and active in civic organizations, their muscle could help the Island GOP solidify electoral gains made this year, when the party took back congressional and Assembly seats.

Let’s see now. They erect statues honoring Ronald Reagan in the former Communist satellite nations. Those who fled Communist Cuba become Republicans. And those who fled the Communist Soviet Union become Republicans.

Seems to be a trend here. One the American left will never understand.

Not just Russian Americans, but also Cuban Americans. When they come to this country, and hear Democratic liberals, and even the far left speak, and or see their policies. They mirror the same symptoms of the disease that made them leave their country. There are a lot of people more on the left, and within the Democratic party who have socialist ideology, big government agenda. Russians, and just about any other group who left a communist country- are afraid of that crap- so they lean more to the Republicans who are anti all of what they ran from.

Leftists and muslums are equally a threat and need to be treated as we would cockroaches and flies.

I am not a Republican, but I am a conservative. Socialism sucks and anyone with a brain and uses it who comes out of such a regime will not want to live in it once out. It is a fact… just fact.

I have a friend, MS degreed chemist. Wife is RN, mother a chemist, father a PDd college professor. All had to live together in a small apartment in Moscow because they could barely make enough money to scrape by. Their main source of income was mother working the black market.
Immigrated to America 12 years ago because he was diagnosed with diabetes and knew he would soon die under the wonderful Russian government health care system. these people see the current regime as something they have seen before and are hard core anti-progressives. They think the “progressives” here are utter fools and can’t understand why they dont move to Russia where what they want already exists. I dont understand either.

Interesting. Suddenly I want to talk politics with my Russian in-laws I only see twice a year and see what they say. All I currently know for sure is that, on the last visit, we went to the gun range, and one started pulling out fun stuff like 75-round drums for his AK.

Mine love this country — here, if you work hard, you can prosper. Back there, you work hard, Uncle Ivan comes and takes it, unless you pay him off.

I have talked to a lot of Russian immigrants here in WA State, and they are coming unglued… let’s just say they are not a fan of “Comrade” Obama.

That’s because they know a communist when they see one.

Wow! I’ve never seen this video before. Apparently not many people took notice because it is so much more pervasive now! Hopefully there are enough people out there who recognize the signs. VIVA la RESISTANCE!
