This post has been translated into other languages. Italian version (traduzione in italiano). French version (en Français). Bulgarian version (Българска версия). Romanian version ( Versiunea română). Spanish version (en Español ). Portuguese version (em Português).
Bad reactions have been reported by those watching this video.
Vomiting, loss of appetite, rage, sadness, nausea, dry heaves, stomach pains, nightmares, feeling suicidal, fear, shaking, trembling, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, chills, headaches , inability to move, spinal chills, churning stomach, anorexia (weight loss due to not eating), flashbacks, insomnia, crying, laughing and crying simultaneously, agoraphobia (inability to go outside), anxiety, depression , loss of consciousness (passing out), urinating on oneself or feeling one is about to urinate on oneself and inability to stop thinking of the video.
Many viewers have said that they were sorry they watched it in the first place and are warning everyone else not to watch it. Be careful if you email the video link to others – people have reported angering their friends by sending this to them.
Other fears were more spiritual: some feared that watching this had permanently harmed their souls. More commonly, people said that they would never be able to forget this video as long as they lived. One person has said that they will never be the same after watching this video. Another said they will be frightened for the rest of their life. Others are saying that they will be scarred for life.
A few long-lasting reactions, including reactions that look like anxiety, depression or a combination, lasting rarely for months but generally for a much shorter duration.
One hospitalization has occurred due to this video. A worker watched the video in his office, was so upset that he went outside to have a cigarette, and was shaking so hard, he could hardly smoke it. He then fainted and hit his head on the sidewalk, knocking out some teeth. If you faint easily, do not watch this video!
If you think you may react in any of these ways, please reconsider whether you really want to watch the video.
This horrible video seems to be a Russian Nazi reaction, in part, to horrible videos made by Chechen rebels recently in which they behead Russian soldiers.
One of the worst of those videos ever made is Six Russian Conscripts. Italian translation (E’ disponibile la traduzione italiana di questo articolo, intitolato Nessuna Pietà per i Russi!). French translation (en Français). Portuguese translation (em Português). In my opinion, it is much worse than this video.
New information has just come out proving that this video is real and not a fake. Kistaman Odamanov, a Dagestani, saw the video on the Internet and identified the man who was beheaded as her brother, Shamil Odamanov, 23. Furthermore, the rest of Shamil’s family and many acquaintances in his village also recognized him in the video.
Shamil went to Moscow to find work and possibly a wife in 2005. He disappeared in mid-April 2007 and has not been seen since. This implies that he was kept alive for three months somewhere before he was killed in mid-August.
Kistaman recognized Shamil by his face and the clothes he was wearing. Russian law enforcement has found where the opening scenes of the video were shot, but they have not found where the executions took place, nor have they found any bodies, blood or other forensic evidence.
Nevertheless, authorities are now treating this case as a homicide. German law enforcement is also involved, implying a German neo-Nazi angle. The Tajik in the video, who appears to have been executed by shooting, has yet to be identified.
Much more on the story that the video is real and not fake on my blog here.
Many have asked the name of the song in the video. The song is “Rus” by the Russian folk-pagan metal band Arkona. You can watch a video of the band playing the song on this blog here.
This is the Russian neo-Nazi decapitation execution video that took the Russian Internet by storm in early August 2007 (the video topped search engine and blog hits for Russian sites). The video is titled The Execution of a Tajik and a Dagestani. It’s a video of Russian neo-Nazis executing two “Blacks” – that is, two White men – one from Dagestan and one from Tajikistan .
For an inquiry into whether or not reasonable people would consider Dagestanis and Tajiks to be White, see my meditation on the subject here.
This video aroused tremendous controversy on the Net for a short while after it appeared. A group called either National Socialism/White Power or National Socialists of Rus claimed responsibility for the video, but authorities said they had never heard of either group.
Rus is the name of the ancient Viking state centered around Kiev – the Kievan Rus. This was the first Russian state, and the name Rus is widely used by nationalists instead of Russia.
This video is well done at least, with some great heavy metal music playing in the background. It was shot in early August 2007, soon before it was released on the Internet.
The video was originally posted on the Russian version of the Live Journal website by a user named vik23. Western news reports say it was originally posted there by a user named “anti-Gypsy,” but he was just one of the ones who reposted it later. It subsequently appeared on many Russian-language neo-Nazi internet sites.
It was quickly removed from most of the sites where it was found, and the National Socialism/White Power site (the name of the group that committed the murders) was overwhelmed with hits.
The video opens first with a Nazi flag and a machine gun sound in the background, then a shout in Russian of “Glory to Rus!”. Then it shows a pan of a Russian town in the countryside. Next it shows a lake surrounded by a forest.
The camera zooms in on the forest and shows two men bound, gagged and hogtied on the ground.
One man is clearly terrified. Next it shows the two frightened men apparently saying, unprompted, in heavily accented Russian, through their gags, “Russian National Socialists arrested us,” as they are bound by hands and legs, kneeling, in the forest. There is a large Nazi flag in the background.
The video then shows an extremely unskilled executioner – a masked man in combat fatigues – coming up behind one of the captives and grabbing him to the same shout of “Glory to Rus!” He then starts sawing the poor guy’s head off, but does a lousy job of it.
The poor guy screams a bit at first. Yet the incompetent executioner spends far too long – 90 seconds – sawing the guy’s head off.
There is controversy about the grunting and gasping sounds you hear as the guy’s head is being sawed off. Some say it is the executioner panting in frustration as he tries to saw off the poor guy’s head. Others say it is the victim himself inhaling blood through his throat or lungs. I’m not competent to judge who is making those horrible sounds.
Finally he chops the poor sod’s head off and then tries to put the head on the decapitated body, but the head keeps rolling off the body. He needs to take lessons from Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, who did an excellent job of balancing US Apache helicopter engineer Paul Johnson’s decapitated head on the rest of his body.
Finally, we are shown the other hostage bound and gagged. There is the same shout, “Glory to Rus!,” and he is quickly dispatched from behind with a shot to the head, whereupon he topples into a freshly-dug grave. The video then shows two Nazi bastards, completely covered from head to toe, giving the obvious salute in front of a Nazi flag.
Originally, Russian law enforcement was divided on whether or not this video was real, then they decided it was fake, but recently there is proof that it is real, and Russian LE is now treating the video as evidence in a homicide case.
I never thought it was fake because you can’t fake a video like this unless perhaps you are a major motion picture company with a large budget.
Some wonder how any Russian could possibly support Nazis, given that they invaded the Soviet Union, an action that resulted in 27 million Soviet deaths, 4½ times more than were killed in the Jewish Holocaust© that gets drilled into our heads day and night.
To understand how a Russian could be a Nazi, one needs to understand the nature of the bloody fascist-Communist struggle in the 20th Century, a history covered up by anti-Communist cant for the simple reason that the fact that no one fought fascism like the Communists would make Commies look good.
Study the history of the 20th Century from a real historian, not a professional hack like so many nowadays, and you will see that Communists and Nazis had one of the worst hate-fests of the past century.
Those 27 million Soviets did not die in WW2 because the USSR so loved the Nazis that they gave the world 27 million of their only sons and daughters. The same tapestry was played out everywhere in Europe during WW2 – every time the Communists and Nazis faced on the war-field, the bodies piled to the sky and the atrocities – on both sides – were too numerous to count. This was no lovers’ quarrel.
They were seen as an inferior race, a weak “slave race” unable to defend themselves. In particular, Hitler, in his manic and crazed anti-Semitism, felt that (Russian) Slavs had allowed themselves to be enslaved by Jews. He meant the “Communist Bolshevik Jews” who Hitler felt ran the USSR.
Since only a bunch of no-good Commie human beings were being genocided during the Nazi invasion of the USSR, this episode has been widely ignored by Western history books. Would Stalin have lost, probably 10′s of millions more people would have died in the USSR and elsewhere, Nazism would have been much more successful, would have menaced the world, and may well have conquered it.
The Nazi project was clear; as bureaucrats, they wrote it down. The Slavs (yet not the Estonians, the Caucasians, Cossacks, various types of Turks, Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Turkmen, Azeris, Tatars, Kalmyks, Karachays, Arabs, Armenians and Georgians) were inferior, to be replaced by Germans through starvation, murder, enslavement and deportation, with the resulting depopulated lands to be given to the Germans for their lebensraum.
During World War 2, 6 million dead Poles (only 50% of whom were Jewish), or 30% of the population, were killed. Similarly, in Belorussia, 25% of the population was dead by the end of the war. In Russia, 27 million were dead, 15% of the population. All of these were “Slav” nations to the Nazis.
Stalin’s mad purges of the late 1930′s were to some degree wild attempts to stave off the emerging Nazi threat by purging and even executing Trotskyites and Bukharinites who were not only openly sympathizing with the Nazis but were also advocating a Nazi invasion of the USSR, if you can believe that.
So the Stalinist purges, criminal and insane as they were, must be seen in the context of the looming Nazi invasion. Yet most of the victims of these purges were innocent people.
Without Stalin, it is dubious whether or not we could have defeated Germany. For instance, 89% of Germany’s casualties in WW2 were at the hands of the Soviets.
Stalin’s initial retreats were completely sensible.
Behind Russian lines, in occupied Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine and White Russia, a good number of people supported the Nazis. They gleefully joined in the Jew-killing and Commie-killing and fought alongside the Nazi beast. Entire Soviet units went over to the Nazis, especially during the Stalingrad siege, where 50,000 Soviet volunteers fought alongside the German monster.
The fate of the nation and many of its residents was at stake. This was no time for namby-pamby talk of human rights. Justice was swift for Soviets who defected to the Nazi enemy, just as it was for the collaborators from other lands, and as the Soviets pushed the Nazi criminals back in the East, many a traitor and collaborator got a swift bullet to the head. Wail about human rights all you want. This was a war. A war to the death.
Yet never had the Soviet people supported the regime in greater numbers and with greater passion than during WW2.
The notion that Stalin during WW2 was an anti-Semite (parroted mostly by paranoid ultranationalist Jews and crazed anti-Communists) may be laid to rest. As one Soviet author put it bluntly at this time, “You are either an anti-Nazi or an anti-Semite.” The line was drawn.
When the Red Army came into Eastern Poland early in the war, they were wildly embraced by the Polish Jews, an action that Polish nationalists have forever condemned them for. But these Jews were not stupid. They knew their enemy, and he was not named Uncle Joe. He had a little mustache, a jerky walk and an outstretched right arm. The USSR was a potential savior of these Jews, and they knew it.
Every educated Jew nowadays knows how indebted he is to Napoleon. It’s too bad they don’t feel that way about Joseph Stalin too.
Joseph Stalin may have saved all of today’s Jews from Nazism.
Joseph Stalin may have saved all of today’s world from Nazism.
On to Russian neo-Nazis. With the fall of Communism, the Russian neo-Nazi movement came into full bloom as the economy collapsed, and the search for scapegoats began.
The Chechen War made this worse, and the cruelties of the madder Chechen rebels probably drove this incident – they have beheaded some Russians on and off-camera. And Muslim terrorist attacks continue in Russia.
“Blacks,” or people from the Caucasus, are hated throughout Russia, and there are regular murders of them. More recently, there have been attacks on African Blacks, Asians and mixed-race people. The authorities do little or nothing to stop the killings, since they support the mindset behind them.
Neo-Nazi racism is so big in Russia that it is hard to comprehend in a US context. Already by August 2007, the time of the video above, in Russia there were over 50 racist murders of Caucasians – people from the Central Asian Republics , anti-fascist activists and foreigners – 25% more than the previous year’s – which was already way too high.
Can you imagine such a huge Nazi movement and attendant crimes in the US?
The Russian fascists serve as shock troops for Vladimir Putin, giving the lie to the notion that he is a neo-Communist, and proving, as we Leftists long suspected, that he is just some species of Russian fascist.
Distributed along with the video was a manifesto calling for the expulsion of all “Asians” and “Blacks” (people from the Caucasus) from Russia, and then, curiously, for the independence of all of the Russian republics in the Caucasus such as Ingushetia, Dagestan, Chechnya, North Ossetia, Cherkyo-Kabardino, etc. Here is the full text of the manifesto (from the Chechen rebel Kavkaz Center):
Statement of the National Socialist Party of Rus
We Are Part of an Armed Faction of the Party
1. Our party announces the beginning of armed struggle against the Black colonists and those Russian officials who support them.
2. We consider the expulsion of Caucasians and Asians from the territory of Russia to be a necessity.
3. We feel it is a necessity to grant independence to all the republics of the Caucasus (including Chechnya), along with the expulsion of the entire Caucasian population there.
4. We demand the release of all National Socialists from Russian prisons and a halt to the persecution of Maksim Martsinevich.
5. We demand that President putin (in the statement the name was written with lowercase – KC) resign and hand over all power to the National Socialist government, which should be led by Dmitry Germanovich Rumyantsev, the leader of the National Socialist Society of Russia.
6. We recognize the political leadership of a National Socialist Society (NSS). We are the armed wing, operating independently.
7. We will not stop struggling until power is handed over to the National Socialist government.
Martsinevich is the head of a group called Format 18. He has been jailed since July on charges of fomenting ethnic hatred and threatening violence.
Neo-Nazi violence in Russia is out of control. It’s also very high in Poland, the UK, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Hungary and Estonia. There is much more neo-Nazi violence per capita in these places than in the US.
Growing neo-Nazi violence is a menace to parts of Europe, and especially to Russia.
