Gorbachev on the “New World Order” circuit again
In the last 20 years, has there been any speech by Gorbachev that didn’t mention a “new world order”?
Jasper also mentions Gorby’s messiah complex:
For many Gorby worshipers, the former Soviet dictator is not only “The Man Who Changed the World” but “The Man Who Saved the World.” David E. Hoffman, who writes for the influential Foreign Policy journal (published by the Washington Post) appears to be one of those. He wrote in a March 1, 2011 article that Gorbachev “may have saved the world.”
Gorbachev has gone the extra mile to cultivate this savior image, regularly comparing himself to Jesus Christ, making reference to Calvary and referring to the “crosses and suffering” and “crucifixion” he must bear. In an interview with the major German newspaper Spiegel he said that the break-up of the Soviet Union “is the pain and cross I shall have to bear until the end of my days.”
Spiegel reports that “he compared his journey to Jesus’s journey to Calvary, when once before, ‘people had spat on their redeemer.’ ”
He is greatly pained, reportedly because though he is celebrated like a rock star throughout most of the world, he is rejected and scorned by most of his Russian countrymen. According to Spiegel:
He concealed his pain with a dash of megalomania. A painting by Russian artist Andrei Myagkov hung in Gorbachev’s dacha outside Moscow where only a few friends were welcome. It showed Gorbachev as a shadow of the savior: Jesus has Gorby’s birthmark on his right hand, which is bleeding.
Jesus, of course, did not jet about the globe socializing with media moguls, corporate titans, central bankers, royalty and celebrities. He did not have his image splashed across magazine covers and television screens, or receive awards and homage from the high and mighty of this world. He was not interested in the worldly power with which Gorbachev and his globalist brethren are obsessed.
I remember coming across the painting in question once in an obscure image shack repository on the internet. See for yourself:
