The West Is Under Attack – Konstantin Kisin | Modern Wisdom Podcast 499

Konstantin Kisin is a podcaster and an author.

The West has had a bad run over the last few years with accusations, every ism and obia under the sun. Having grown up in the Soviet Union however, Konstantin has a unique perspective on just how bad a nation can be and has some home truths to remind everyone of.

Expect to learn whether we should be bothered that Jordan Peterson and Dave Rubin are banned from Twitter, why the term Political Correctness has some very communist roots, how a Russian disinformation agent predicted everything we’re seeing in 2022, whether we’ve passed peak woke, if both-sidesism is a grift and much more…

  2. Agree with most of what Konstantin says, he has a fine mind, and it is always useful to hear an outsiders view of your nation. But one matter caught my attention. Re. the illegal immigrants arriving in Britain by boat. They are not escaping war, they have arrived from France, a safe, western country, having also travelled through numerous other safe countries first. It looks very much like a shopping expedition, on the hunt for the best bargain, which, it appears, is good old, soft touch Blighty. And the huge majority are young men, unlike, say, those escaping Ukraine, who are nearly all women and children.Their behaviour, showing disdain for our laws, and jumping the queue of often more worthy candidates, actually makes many Brits reluctant to accept genuine Refugees.

  3. EVERYONE WITH ANY PRIDE is innately Racist, meaning Tribal! There is NOTHING WRONG with thinking you OR your people are “better” than other people! NO BIG DEAL! You TRY to prove yourself to others. Are Africans, Mexicans, Indians, Chinese, Samoan people racist? YES!!! It’s NOT A BIG FUCKING DEAL! The West needs TO STOP being so accepting of immigrants WHO HATE them. We ARE ALL ENTITLED to loving OUR OWN PEOPLE ABOVE ALL OTHERS!!

    Lastly, MY USA is a 74% CHRISTIAN and a 66% European “White” citizenry! ANY FORCED change to this is “ethnic cleansing” by definition, GENOCIDE. READ MY COMMENT 10x, memorize it, AND SHARE it. 💪🏻😡🖕🏻✝️🇺🇸

  4. As someone who appreciate and respects people in the centre, you have no value to those on the left or right when things really heat up, you've just doubled your enemy if you think you can take them both on at the same time.

  5. Konstantin seemed to invite us to believe that Americans had no need to travel
    outside their own nation because they were living in a utopia.:)

  6. Has 'wokeness' peaked? Try getting a job as a white male. If there is any other candidate from a preferred group, the Woke are in charge and they prefer to hire and promote their own. Multiply that by the number of hiring decisions made each day, going on decades, and consider two things, first, the enormous institutionalized wealth transfer, second, the institutionalized incompetence that must attend decades of hiring people of lesser competence. There's an old joke. How does science progress? One death at a time. Now consider the magnitude of the 'woke' institutional ballast. In schools. In courts. In the media. In churches. In police forces and the military. In knitting clubs for God's sake. It will take decades for this to change… and the Left's 'gift' is that it ALWAYS leaves bodies in its wake, great piles of them in pursuit of what Thomas Sowell rightly calls the unconstrained vision.

  7. both the left and the right are wrong but the right is hardly a threat these days, it's the left you all should be concerned about. They have subverted universities, institutions and the government in America and many other countries like France and Australia. The left ruined universities, they ruined the entertainment industry so much that anybody is hard pressed to find a good show or movie these days. Top Gun Maverick and The Terminal List are the only movie and show I can think of that has not been ruined by the radical left woke.

    Conservatives are more or less in the middle, but yet the far left portray us like we are on the far right like with the alt-right, which is not true at all. Being in the middle is in the right and being on either extremes is in the wrong. Since the far right is hardly a threat these days because very few identify with that ideology compared to the overall population, you have to look at the far left and you should be able to conclude that you practice radical extremism, surely you are not in the right.

    The radical left has to be annihilated come election.

  8. The West has the Barbarians, the rest of the World has experienced this for the past 400 years. Crusades, Colonization, Extermination of certain tribes, constant wars between Germans, English, World wars were all Western wars. The west ist scared it is losing the Hegemony it has been enjoying, no hegemony no World dictatorship.

  9. Aha ! Yuri Bezmenov and the subversion of the west, excellent topic, this gets to the heart of the matter, is it Russian money? Chinese or some unknown anti-christian financial power closer to home?

  10. I'm American but have lived many years in numerous European countries. I see no valid basis for America bashing. Europe has loads of problems of its own, and man, it's far more racist than the US. I was shocked at the casual racism I heard. Listen to how they talk about gypsies, for example. Europe's superiority complex is based on ignorance and media distortions.

  11. It's a little strange that he should begin his discussion talking about how there are cultural differences between the states and how this is such a great thing, then complain about federalism and subsidiarity (which seems to be the primary reason the Supreme Court is striking down federal laws created by the judiciary). There will always be ethical differences between different people. Why not just let people vote with their feet? And, exactly, how much can you be said to be supporting democracy if you're supporting the most non-democratic institution in the U.S. (the courts) simply making up policy from the bench, as with Roe v Wade?

  12. Konstantin, you come across as a fairly reasonable human being, but for the love of God please realise that the "utopia" that these people strive for will never be a thing, as there's too many different cultures entirely living in one tiny space, who segregate themselves, and its just not human nature anyway, as we're a tribal species for God's sake, and it also will be the end of the English people and culture as we know and cherish it today, as they're practically advocating for open borders. There is no end game to immigration for them. We've already been made a minority in a few of our cities, and it's projected to be entire country if immigration trends continue. Give it a couple of hundred years and the English ethnicity will be bred out of existence. This will be inevitable as more foreigners keep on moving into our spaces and we are naturally going to be forced together, and the fact we have lower birth rates to immigrants. We're not even having the healthy 2.1 children. We're at replacement levels. Please talk about this for us. Do you think you could have Professor David Coleman on your podcast? Someone from migration watch?? We need help.

  13. I'm white English. I wouldn't piss on what Britain has become let alone defend it. My grandad lost an eye in WW2 and look what happened. I did a decade in HM Forces back in the day. What are you actually defending in the west? The replacement/denigration of your people? Having your sons at the back of the queue in their ancestral homeland? A global urinal for economic-immigrant race-baiters? Yeah, no.

  14. The way he talks about abortion is spot-on. A sane voice. And because he comess from the former Soviet Union, there's an edge to his concerns about what is happening to free speech in the West.

  15. What is the far right? They called trump far right.. A life long Democrat reality TV star. I don't think the middle has time to worry about the right.

  16. I think a smart thing is to define what your even talking about when beginning a conversation with some of "left & right" or capitalism, socialism etc.
    The even smarter thing to do, if the other person will humor you, is to ban the use of those words entirely, which forces you both to cut straight to the ideas in question. I notice we chase our tales endlessly when using terminology like right/left which never made sense. I can't help but think whoever made those political words up wanted to keep people confused on purpose.

  17. President Trump was voted in 2000 by the people but the election was STOLEN.
    Watch “2000 Mules”.
    The machine was infiltrated by Italy, Germany, Venezuela, China and then sent back to the United States. Do the research!
