‘Enemy of the people’ is a Russian — not an American — term

This is a partial list of "enemies of the people" (mostly Russians critical of the Putin regime), which was published on a Russian website called "Enemies of the People.Ru" and widely distributed by Russian media and social networks in late summer 2014. Boris Nemtsov, Putin's most outspoken opponent and #2 on this list, was murdered next to the Kremlin only six months later. The list included not only domestic "enemies," but also some westerners such as Hillary Clinton, Zbigniew Brzezinski, George W Bush, John McCain, Joe Biden, Condoleezza Rice, Margaret Thatcher, Queen Elizabeth, Denis MacShane, and Michael McFaul, who was the US Ambassador in Moscow at the time. The neighboring countries were represented by former presidents of Ukraine and Georgia Victor Yushchenko and Mikheil Saakashvili respectively. Surprisingly, some former Soviet and Russian leaders were also there, such as Boris Yeltsin, Mikhail Gorbachev, Nikita Khrushchev and Lev Trotsky. At the same time, Lenin and Stalin were missing.

“Persons committing offenses against public, socialist property are enemies of the people.” 

The Constitution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics,
   approved by the Extraordinary VIII Congress of Soviets of the USSR on Dec-5-1936

An enormous and completely justified effort is now going to determine how Moscow influenced the US elections last year and what the nature of contacts between the Putin regime and the Trump team have been, but in doing so, some have missed one aspect of this situation that can be seen with an unaided eye.

And it is this: Donald Trump and some of his supporters are introducing Russian terms like “enemy of the people” and “dark forces” into American political discourse, a development that can only cheer the enemies of democracy and freedom everywhere and encourage the enemies of those values in Moscow.

Donal Trump's enemy of the people tweetWords matter and changes in the vocabulary with which people talk about the circumstances around them can change those circumstances in ways far more profound than more obvious actions because they create a new situation in which things that were not possible in the old one become all too likely in the new.

SELECTION OF SEX SLAVES FROM NEW ARRIVALS OUT OF THE "ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE" (OR THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS) BY GULAG BOSSES: Women-"enemies of the people" were inspected by the job assignment commission in the nude. Liked women were assigned to the camp household duties where they became sex slaves. If they refused, they were assigned to fell trees and other such hard physical labor or were incarcerated in solitary confinement cells for "delinquency" and starved there. ("Drawings from the GULAG" by Danzig Baldaev, a former guard)

(“Drawings from the GULAG” by Danzig Baldaev, a former guard)

And what is worse, the acceptance of such new terms opens the way to others. Now that Trump has called leading American media outlets “enemies of the people,” one of his supporters, Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky), is blaming unspecified dark forces for pushing the US toward a war with Russia.

At the same time, Lenin and Stalin, on whose orders tens of millions of Soviets were killed, were missing.

Those tempted to view such rhetoric as simply overheated should remember three things:

  • First, it was Stalin who used the term “enemy of the people” to justify the liquidation of his opponents and to spread terror in Soviet society, a tactic that other totalitarians have routinely copied with countless real-world victims as a result.
  • Second, disgraced US President Richard Nixon had an enemies list, but they were his enemies. He did not call them “enemies of the people” because however much he hated those on that list, he remained within the American political tradition that accepts the existence of opponents in politics and the media regardless of how much one differs from them.
  • And third, as George Orwell and others have pointed out, the abuse of language opens the way to the abuse of people. Calling anyone “an enemy of the people” represents an effort to strip them of their rights as a human being and citizen and makes it all too easy for those who use such terms to take the next step of get their followers to do so.

Vladimir Putin may have achieved more of his goals in undermining the US and democracy by getting some to follow his lead in language than he has so far in getting his way in policy. Tragically, unless these linguistic “innovations” from Russia are combated, the other concessions the Kremlin wants will not be long in coming.

        It only proves that Dwarfstanians are masochists- the harder their leaders beat and terrorise them, the more those leaders are revered. It’s no coincidence that Dwarfstan’s most popular leaders are Ivan the Terrible and Stalin- NOT, as would be the case in a normal country, Aleksandr II for ending serfdom.

      Breaking news: the illegal gvt in Kiev sent police on na*is protesting against gvt’s decision to lift the Donbass blockade. Sources claim there are victims. Problem 1: both na*is and gvt troops are heavily armed and if the conflict continues, it may be bloodier than the 1 in Novorossiya. Problem 2: who do we support now? Both gvt and na*is are equally in the right. Blockade is necessary for the destruction of the ppl of Donbass (na*i logic). It needs to be removed coz it harms the ailing Ukrainian economy (gvt logic). Furthermore, in case of serious clashes between the gvt and na*i forces, the breakaway republics may use the lull in fighting to stir troubles in Russian speaking areas of the rump Ukraine.

        As I wrote in response to the same thing you posted above – how do you get from “1 policeman injured and 5 protesters arrested” to “this will be worse than the Donbass fighting”? Calm down.

        Don’t worry about the breakaway republics stirring trouble among Russian speaking areas – it is the Russian speaking people of Ukraine who have most strongly rejected Putin’s “protection”. They do not want to be rueld by the Kremlin .

        And “rump Ukraine” – seriously? Have you looked at a map to see the small sliver of Ukraine that Russia holds in the east?

This is what counts in addition to how violent they are and how anarchistic they act and what kind of personal and property damage they are prepared to cause to get their way. We saw on Maidan how far are the Ukrainian NeoNaZZi willing to go… they are ULTRA VIOLENT and what we saw on Maidan is school example of Foreign Nation Induced and Supported Terrorism.

            Its the other way around – the Russian parliament is full of nationalists who are neo-nazis, just as Putin is. And most members of the Russian Duma admire Stalin, who was a fascist.

            There are few neo-nazis in Ukraine, and they have few if any representatives in Parliament. You just don’t know your basic facts.

            As for Maidan, we saw the opposite to what you say – the real violence came from Yanukvyvh;s police, who were nazis and behaved like them. Virtually all of them are now hiding in Russia, which is where nazis go for protection. But you can continue to lie to yourself as far as you wish.

    Breaking news: the illegal gvt in Kiev sent police on nazis protesting against gvt’s decision to lift the Donbass blockade. Sources claim there are victims. Problem 1: both nazis and gvt troops are heavily armed and if the conflict continues, it may be bloodier than the 1 in Novorossiya. Problem 2: who do we support now? Both gvt and nazis are equally in the right. Blockade is necessary5 of the rump Ukraine.

    1. Avatar Alex George says:

      Funny – the report I am looking at says there was a protest march in Kyiv (public protesting is legal, in Ukraine), they tried to march on the president;s residence, there were scuffles, result was 1 policeman injured and five protesters arrested.

      Its not exactly a new Maidan. How do you get from that to a prediction that this will get worse than the Donbass fighting?

      There is no such thing as “novorossiya” – even the Kremlin has abandoned that idea. And those in favour of the blockade are not seeking the “destruction of the people of Donbass”. Quite the opposite – they want to protect the people of Donbass from those who seek to oppress and destroy them – i.e. Putin’s minions.

        1. Avatar Alex George says:

          They already are paying taxes to the separatists in occupied Donbass (remember most of Donbass remains under Ukrainian control).

          The problem for the separatists is that those taxes will soon be cut off due to the blockade, so the separatists have to get what they can by taking the factories. But they will have to find new workers and new markets for the products.

      In any case, you are just trying to deflect from the situation today, where most Russians admire Stalin, who was himself a fascist and made an alliance with Hitler.

      Russian Nationalism [Fascism] – is a redefinition of former Soviet [USSR} ideology and practices in the current Russian authorities/institutions and leadership. It is based on the ideas of ideological superiority of “Russian Compatriots” and territorial neocolonialism of the former USSR borders. As well as, application of the Russian Orthodox Church theological theory on Russians being the Chosen People. Current Russian government is institutionally and economically similar in structure to Fascist governments in terms of these ideological principles. Russian Nationalism’s ideology is based on the illusion of acceptability of its fallaciously perceived interests of the Russian people. It further will violate principles of international law too imposes on the world its own version of truth of the national interests of its citizens. Current Russian Nationalism’s [Putins] leadership politics is consistent with Fascist totalitarian ideas of, cult of the supreme leader, nationalist great power chauvinism, nostalgia for Soviet [USSR] past and religious traditionalism.
