Globalist Propaganda: Its Effect on the Orthodox values of Macedonia

A collection of beleaguered Orthodox Churches has played a vitally significant role in the development of Eastern European culture and society. They have established significant traditional values, moral codes, and beliefs in the frames of their respective cultures and communities that were accepted from the earliest stages in the development of the Balkan nations and were strictly important in the building of the free and prosperous nations and nation-states during the national revivals in Eastern Europe.  With the absence of those values it’s unlikely to think that the societies we see today would have existed without falling in decline.

The Slavic tribes from Macedonia, who initially settled on the Balkans between the 6th and 8th centuries AD, were among the first to accept the Orthodox faith from the neighboring Byzantine Empire. The people from Macedonia were also the first to realize that the use of local vernaculars in the preaching of doctrines and beliefs by the Church, instead of the till-then exclusive Greek language, would bring the support to the faith from the rest of the Slavic people in Europe.

To this end, two clerics from the town of Salonica, Saints Cyril and Methodius, took the roots of the Macedonian Slavic dialects and created the first all-Slavic language (today known as Old Church Slavonic). With it, they preached the Orthodox faith to Slavs from Macedonia all the way to Moravia (present-day Czech Republic), and is still used by all Slavic Orthodox churches. So, in a way, the people of Macedonia were the initial Slavic adherers to Orthodox Christianity and helped spread the values, moral codes, and ethics of the faith throughout the whole “Slavic world.” Even the first autocephalous Slavic Orthodox church, the Patriarchate of Ohrid, was founded on the territory of Macedonia by Samuil, a Bulgarian king native to Macedonia.

The long-lasting Christian tradition in Macedonia today sees a new challenge in a long series of consecutive existential threats. Maybe one that works less conspicuously than the previous, however I think brings a lot of damage, not only to the Macedonian Orthodox tradition and identity, but also the national values of other traditionalist societies on the Balkan Peninsula and in Europe.

I’m speaking, of course, about the liberal and globalist propaganda carried out by the present US government and the European Union that tries to preach its homosexual, so-called “multi-ethnic,” “democratic,” and downright destructive agenda to the people of this region. It’s interesting how the people and organizations pulling the strings of the United States government and its puppet formations like the European Union don’t want to force these ideas exclusively in their own jurisdictions, but the whole world, as it seems.

Maybe Russia adopting those laws banning homosexual propaganda and destructive Western NGOs brings some light of hope to the traditionalist nations in Europe swept under the radar of liberal propaganda machines financed by the US and the EU. However, this year, maybe more than any other since the 2001 ethnic conflict, the Orthodox Macedonians saw more escalations and tensions in their society as a consequence of the activities and influences made by these organizations. In 2015, Macedonia saw:

  • Muslim Albanian terrorist and Islamic extremists entering its borders from the disputed territory of Kosovo and engaging in deadly shootouts with the authorities in which 8 Macedonian police officers lost their lives;
  • extremely violent demonstrations and rallies with Albanian, communist, and homosexual “rainbow” flags that hospitalized 40 police officers and were organized by US financed liberal and communist groups;
  • thousands of illegal immigrants entering the country’s  southern border,  every day, destroying Macedonia’s economy and transport systems;
  • the removal of the Macedonian nationalist prime minister Nikola Gruevski from office just one year after an election that was described as “free and democratic” by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe took place.

Even though Macedonia is the only country in the world with a governing Orthodox Christian traditionalist party, the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization-Democratic Party for Macedonian National Unity (VMRO-DPMNE), there are still many obstacles that prevent the current government from returning Christian values to the society after a long and destructive Communist regime.  The Party of European Socialists-backed opposition party, the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia, last year successfully brought down a government proposed change in the Constitution that would make marriage exclusively a “union between a man and a woman.”

The Orthodox community in the country, although making the vast majority of the total population, is harshly segregated in Muslim-dominated areas. Many Orthodox Macedonian settlements in Albanian-dominated regions were brought to ashes during the 2001 ethnic conflict between Muslim Albanian rebels and the Macedonian Army.

Last year, five Orthodox Christian boys were gunned down by automatic rifles by Albanian Islamists near the Macedonian capital of Skopje. Even the Kosovar insurgents that crossed the Macedonian border this year planned on attacking government institutions, Orthodox churches, and events. Those were the same people that were supplied with arms and financed by the US government during the Yugoslav wars and fought the Serbians for Kosovo.

Through the use of extremist left-wing groups and NGOs, the United States Embassies and the European Union are undoubtedly pushing a Globalist idea much to the expense of the centuries-old values and social orders of the traditions in Eastern Europe, with a sole purpose, as it seems, of creating a stateless people-less form of anarchy in which the people, ripped off their moral and religious beliefs, serve only one purpose – money.

    Do you belong to Serbian Orthodox Church or non-canonical Macedonian Orthodox Church (not recognized by Serbian, Greek and other Orthodox Churches)?

    • Phillip Romanski

      I was baptized in the Macedonian Orthodox Church – Ohrid Archbishopric. I don’t think that at that time (circa 90s) the church was disputed in the same manner as today, however its independence was never fully recognized by the Serbian Orthodox Church since the break-up in 1967.
      I’m not going to get into the politics of the whole situation, but I’m really happy and optimistic about the recent efforts by the two churches, succeeding the terrorist attack in Kumanovo earlier this year, to finally resolve the issues and settle down ideological differences in order for these two churches to reestablish cooperation and religious integrity.
      As a devout Orthodox Christian I’m an active member within the Church and inner sources say that the negotiations between the churches are due to start in Autumn this year. Hopefully in the future we’ll see more collaboration between the Serbian and Macedonian Orthodox leadership and clergy.

    Love the article! I think it’s a positive thing to finally speak out on the Globalist agenda in Europe. Whereas liberal leftist ideas are taken with open arms in West European countries like Sweden, Norway, Belgium, or whatever, the Eastern Europeans are strong enough to reject them and fight them. The Globalization effort by America in these regions is pretty powerful and possibly the largest consequence was the social and political split in Ukraine.
    Today, we as Christians instead of giving support to the Orthodox Macedonians, we give it to radical Albanian Islamists hell-bent on destroying Balkan society. What they want is to create a pan-Balkan state under the model of Kosovo where drug trafficking, human trafficking, murder, rape, prostitution, organ theft, and chaos are widespread and rampant. They want to create an immoral and irreligious society where the American elites can thrive in a foreign social anarchy.
    I say, when our Christian brothers need help, give them help, give them support, don’t eradicate them.

  • John

    How do you feel about persecution of archbishop John and others?
    What do you think about participation of communist authorities in creating Macedonian Orthodox Church?

  • Fr. John+

    John, pardon me, but your comments (while not intentional, I am hopeful) are appearing to be ‘fire starters’ in this article, to demean, downplay, and otherwise de-legitimize the article’s main points- the desire of the Macedonian People to be their own Folk, have their own Church, and be LEFT ALONE on the world stage.

    The only people who constantly use the tactic of de-legimization of another race/religion/ethnos in the West today, are the Jews… as we know, the consummate negaters, doubters, and destroyers of civilization, wherever they may be found.

    One could just as easily (and with far more application to TY’s readership) talk about the immoral and illegal establishment of the OCA in the USA, by the Soviet (non-Canonical) Orthodox, during the 1970’s…but that’s ‘not done’ in the SCOBAdox world these days. In a similar fashion, asking leading questions about the Macedons’ and THEIR church, are not germane toward illuminating the evil of the ‘great Satan’ – i.e., the jewish-dominated West, and her cult of death.

    I would say, in this instance, the image of “the log vs. splinter in the eye” that Our Lord talked about, would far better to be applied, than questioning an Orthodox Christian’s confession as he seeks to enlighten those of us in the beknighted West about his nation and the problems they are facing.

    • John

      I am just asking. But trust me, there is something behind creating Montenegrin, Croatian and Macedonian Church.

  • Lew

    Didn’t some Jew just try to start a color revolution in Macedonia? I recently read that somewhere, but now I can’t find it.

    • Phillip Romanski

      Yes, I think it was George Soros, a main player in the Jewish globalist agenda, who directly financed the groups, organizations, and political parties that made large destructive protests earlier this year in which, I think, 38 police officers were hospitalized.
      Official statements say that it was a failed “color revolution”-styled coup d’etat whose main goal was destroying the identity and national sense of the people in Macedonia.
      Ron Paul made a statement on the situation, which I think grasps it firmly, you can check it out here-

  • tom

    are you optimistic about greek-macedonian relations? I usually only hear the greek side of the discussion.

  • John

    Lew, I don`t know if that guy is jewish but he is certainly connected with western intelligence services. His name is Zoran Zaev. We can conclude this because information that he is using against Gruevski is probably obtained by foreign intelligence services. Main reasons for colored revolution in FYROM are:
    1. Turkish stream – FYROM is the weakest link
    2. Gruevski is cooperating with Russia and China

    Henry Kissinger once said that to be an enemy of America can be dangerous, but to be a friend is fatal. FYROM is good example of that, their Minister of Defence is former albanian terrorist Talal Xhaferi. FYROM is a failed state in every sense.

    So-called Macedonian, Montenegrin, Bosniak nations are results of constructivism, manipulation and propaganda. About Macedonian case you can read on:
    About Montenegrin on:

    Bosniak nation scam is too obvious.

    I hope that everything will fall into place, and that one day Serbia will get 39%, Bulgaria 10% and Greece 51% of this territory.

    • Phillip Romanski

      John, I must warn you that you’re propagating a globalist idea that resembles the style of Jewish elite George Soros whose manipulation in the internal politics of small countries like Macedonia leads to catastrophic results in their societies.
      The people of Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia, and Croatia, unlike what you might think, have their own history, culture, and a linking sense of belonging. Yes, maybe all South Slavic peoples resemble each other in one way or another, but they have their own nations and identities. Even more so, I would argue, than today’s Serbia.
      Internationalism and Globalism are products of Jewish manipulation, adopted in the Western culture, and I can only conclude that under that influence you’re making you’re arrogant remarks on other cultures.
      You, as someone who’s advocating the partition of nation-states, and their dismantlement, in my opinion, shouldn’t make conclusions on these stories.
      My belief is that every nation with a sense of belonging to a land has the right to organize and create its own separate nation. Just like the Palestinians in Palestine, Syrians in Syria, Macedonians in Macedonia, etc.

  • G.M.

    Golden Dawn’s trenchant chauvinism on the Greece-Macedonia question is a troubling rejection of the pan-European idea. Nationalist parties should be able to put aside petty familial conflicts & advocate that the imperiled European peoples stand together against the aliens who threaten them, both those outside & those within the gates.

  • John

    One of the postulates of global demonstration of power is belief in almightiness of constructivism, manipulation and propaganda. Every organismic theory that instists on gradualism, evolvability, long duration, need that communities develop good quality connections by long-lasting practice and experience, is in public discourse treated like political incorrectness that leads to fascism. Only this instrumental “background” can explain why mechanistic metaphors are considered good and organismic bad.
    Best example is universal hostility that modern academism has developed towards idea of solid nation and nationalism, wherein at first glance is not clear why internationalism is good by itself, and nationalism is by definition bad.
    Behind that are economic, political, geopolitical and other interests that by all available mechanisms of power are concentrating on destabilization and separation of classical nations, from which new artificial identities of smaller, fluid and unsustainable nations should appear.
    Exploration of phenomenon of nation and nationalism experienced great progress in second half of XX century. It started immediately after WWII as critical reconsideration of organistic understandings of nation. All of that happened under influence of terrible war destruction, genocide and holocaust for which barbaric celebration of nation and racist glorification of one nation over others was blamed for unanimously. This is exactly why need for demystification of millennial and eternal nations gave first incentive for development of constructivist approach to a given phenomenon: instead of glorification of nations as eternal, unchangeable organic creations, their historicity, recentness, dynamism and changeability are to be shown.
    Another incentive came from functionalist approach to history and political and sociological theory. In short, rebutting the custom that nations are represented as eternal projects that are goal and purpose by itself, functionalists insisted on fact that nations are constructs created in certain time period (modern history) with concrete, very practical purposes. So, nations are not of eternal but recent origin, and they are not goal but instrumentality, they represent constructs created for the sake of concrete functions (forerunners of this are marxists, they argued about it with liberals in 19th century).
    Dispersion of nationalisms and incitement of local differences leads to destruction of solid national states and creation of quasi-states that are much easier to blackmail, make them dependent and drive into regional and global integration.
    Communists separated Vardar (or Old) Serbia from Serbia, I hope that in future Serbs will reclaim what belongs to them.
