IT WASN’T JUST ABOUT JEWS – BUT JEWS WERE THE FOCUS:
Until 1971, Russian Jews Amongst Russian Non-Jews, Who Applied To Emigrate From Russia Were Refused.
THIS IS A LESSON AMERICANS & CANADIANS WOULD DO WELL TO HEED:
From 1960 To 1971 – Jews & Others Were Made To Be Criminals Only For Wanting To Be Free.
These Applicants who Wanted to Emigrate Out of Russia Prior to 1971 (From 1960), were Referred to as Refuseniks. However, Many Non-Jews who made Application to Emigrate from Russia were Generally Granted their Application or Refused Without Punishment . . . But Not Jews, Which Delivered Selective Justice. Does that Sound Familiar in our Context – Justice For Thee But Not For Me.
Being A Refusenik Had Grave Consequences.
Just by Making an Application to Emigrate from Russia was a Confession of Disloyalty to Mother Russia, because, if One Loved Russia Above all Else, why would Anyone Want to Leave? And if a Person Wanted to Leave Russia, why Should Russia Continue to Provide Largesse to the Applicant & His or Her Family?
Theoretically . . . In Russia – EVERYONE Had A Job. And as a Result of Having a Job, EVERYONE was Entitled to Housing, Food, Medicine, Education – Etc, as Inadequate as all the Russian Social Services Were – It Was Better To Have Whatever Services The Government Provided – Than Nothing.
If You Didn’t Have A Job . . . You Were Entitled To Nothing. Which Made the Applicant & His or Her Family Derelicts, which was Against the Law. So Until the Application for Emigration was Accepted, which it Rarely was . . . The Applicant was a Non-Citizen of His or Her Own Country, Living ILLEGALLY within Russia’s Borders.
It Was A Catch 22 . . . You Were Guilty For The Application, You Were Guilty When Waiting & You Were Guilty For Being Refused.
SO WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE PEOPLE WHO WERE CALLED REFUSENIKS?
Because they were Denied Work, Had Nowhere to Live & No Means of Feeding Themselves or Families, and had No Support Otherwise, they were Deemed Derelicts, which was a Crime Against the State, which Meant Arrest & Imprisonment Most Often in a Work-Camp, In The Russian Hellhole Of The Gulag (Siberia).
Just As An Aside . . . From The Age Of 18-On, I Threw Myself Into the Fight to Free the Refuseniks as a Member of the Montreal Jewish Defense League, to Do all that I could as an Individual and as Part of a Group to Stand-Up for the Refuseniks, which Included some Serious Civil Disobedience.
I Won’t Go Into That Part Of My Life Which I Look Back-On With Great Pride, Other than to Tell you that as a Small Cog in a Much Larger Wheel of Defiance & Resistance . . . The Russian Juggernaut Broke-Down – And Let My People Go.
SO HERE’S THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS STORY TO YOU & ME . . . HERE & NOW:
The Russians Crushed Their Jewish Population . . . Through the Dire Intimidation of . . . Becoming a Non-Person in Russia with a Total Loss of Job, Pension, Income, Stature & Accessibility to Health Care, Restaurants & Most if Not all Social Activities.
Does This Not Seem Similar To What We’re Living With Now?
We’re Not In The Position Of The Refuseniks . . . Where we will be Sent to a Forced Labor Camp in the “Gulag” for Defying our Government, But, for Americans & Canadians who Refuse to Comply to Unconstitutional Laws, We Are In The Same Position, where we Could Lose Everything . . . Becoming National Pariahs Amongst our Neighbors, Friends and even Relatives.
We Are Living In An Age Of Our Governments Having Exceeded Their Mandates, Which Are Stripping Us Of Our Freedoms.
DON’T TAKE THIS LIGHTLY – OUR GOVERNMENTS HAVE BECOME CRIMINALS:
The Governments Forced Some of Us who the Governments Deemed Non-Essential to Lock Ourselves Away from our Friends & Relatives, from Religious Observances, Schools & Social Events.
We’ve even Been Forced to Miss Funerals, Weddings & The Births of our Own Children, where Family & Husband Support were Forced Not to be Present at the Time of the Birth. And we Missed the Passing of our Elderly Parents, when our Parents were Forced to Die by Themselves, while Being Denied a Last Visit and a Last Touch from their Loving Family Members.
The Government Made Mega Retailers Richer than they Could Have Ever Imagined, while Contributing to the Bankruptcy of Independently Owned Shops, Service Providers & Retailers.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO THINK HARD TO COME TO A CONCLUSION:
NOT IF . . . BUT BECAUSE – Our Governments at all Levels, Federal, State/Provincial & Municipal Simply Walked Into our Personal & Corporate Lives & Selectively Stripped From us our Assumed Freedoms by Use of Police Intimidation, with Barely a Substantial Resistance from the People . . . WHAT DO YOU THINK THE GOVERNMENT WON’T & CAN’T DO?
The Last Target Of The Government Is The Independent Media, which by all Standards has become The Last Man Standing to Tell the Truth & Expose the Tyranny.
In Canada, the Trudeau Liberals with the Help of the Heavily Socialist NDP and the Fake Conservative Party are Passing Legislation to Curtail Freedom of Expression, By Determining What Is Acceptable Expression & What Is Not.
LET ME REITERATE THIS AGAIN!
Fight Now On Your Feet . . . Or Be Prepared To Live On Your Knees. What Happened Yesterday Will Happened Again.

Howard, you should again allow us to post these editorials to facebook or whatever it is called. This needs to be published far and wide.
Everyone Has The Right To Re-Post All of my Unedited Editorials – HG:
At almost 80 years old, I don’t have much “standing” left in me, but I WILL ALWAYS STAND FOR FREEDOM & LIBERTY!!! They might come haul me away to jail, gulag or whatever, but with my Lord & Savior I will stand until the end. And I dare say, the END for all of us is not far off.
For a long time i have told friends and relatives that we have lost many of our freedoms and will continue to do so every time a New Law or Rule is passed by Local, Provincial (State) or Federal Agencies (not even Politicians but boards, agents etc)…YOU HAVE CONFIRMED AND HIGHLIGHTED THIS WITH THIS BLOG. WE AS A PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER FREE AS THESE PAST ‘ELECTIONS’ and so-called ‘PANDEMIC’ HAVE PROVEN IT. THEY CAN CONTROL AND TELL US WHAT WE CAN OR CANNOT DO AT ANYTIME.WE HAVE LOST OUR FREEDOMS.
How was the USSR able to identify Jews from non-Jews? Stalin created a “homeland” for Jews, a remote place called Birobidzhan. Never mind that Jews had never been there and not many went there after becoming their homeland. But it allowed the government to label all Jews as Birobidzhanis, a designation required on their ID cards, just as those who were from, say, Georgia, had that designation on theirs. Thus, the ability to discriminate against Jews was now made easily to do.
Tragically, you’re giving out wise words. Apathy is costly to freedom. We have been lulled into believing the government will provide for us, without ever considering that it is our production that feeds the government. we can stop it if we think correctly.
OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME CRIMINAL: and we are almost to the place where the Government will be forcing some of Us who the Governments Deemed Non-Essential to Lock Ourselves Away from our Friends & Relatives, from Religious Observances, Schools & Social Events. If things continue as they have since Biden was made President for the next 3 years, we will have no Country.
Hitler’s birthplace Austria will be imposing lockdown on all “unvaxxed” citizens over the age of 12. Which country will be next?
Great editorial.Trudeau and Singh working to control more Canadians using Covid, where are the Conservative they should use this chance to stand up for Canadian Rights and Freedoms…fight for the West with the West getting equal rights just like Quebec or Separate keeping the resource jobs.If You Didn’t Have a Job…You Were Entitled to Nothing.You have to wonder how the US allies in Israel, Taiwan, Ukraine feel about the reliability & power of the US Military not wanting to offending the WOKE!
Soon we will see how the US stands against China as they take over Taiwan. With a Military that is now being depleted due to Vaccine Mandate, our ability to assist our Allies is greatly reduced. Woke fools are going to destroy us from the inside. Life as we have known it is changing daily. When a 17 year old feels the need to stand up against low life destroying private property and is pushed to defend himself and is now being tried for it is shameless. We are on the wrong road, God help us.
