LaBarbera Award: Igor Panarin

Jim Burroway

March 4th, 2009

A Russian “scholar” has some remarkable predictions for the U.S. in the coming years. President Barack Obama will order martial law, the U.S. will split into six rump-states by 2011, and Russia and China will emerge as the new superpowers of a new world order. He’s been predicting the U.S.’s demise for more than a decade, but he’s pretty sure he has it nailed this time. Why?:

Paranin argued that Americans are in moral decline, saying their great psychological stress is evident from school shootings, the size of the prison population and the number of gay men.

Paranin isn’t just some ordinary loon. He’s a former spokesman for Russia’s Federal Space Agency and reputedly a former KGB analyst. He is currently the dean at the Foreign Ministry’s school for future diplomats, and he makes regular appearances on Russia’s state, err, “guided” TV channels.

Panarin also thinks that Alaska is destined to revert back to Russian control. If that happens, Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin character will definitely see Russia from her front porch.

It’s odd that he actually supplies a date. That makes the whole thing falsifiable (though probably revisable). The secret to good predicting is to give a date and an event, but never both together.

Alaskans will never submit to Moscow. I would leave Colorado and return to Alaska to defend my homeland.

As for the 6 state theory following the imposition of marshal law: yeah right. Everyone knows the United States will be split along Red State/Blue State lines. Red States will descend into religious theocracy motivated by a desire to return to conservative 1950′s ideals that never existed. While the Blue States will finally be able to shuck off the rediculous notions of “God, Guns, Gays”.

Clearly this person is NOT crazy. Moral in this country decline, no culture. People scare even see each other eyes. Lie each other with a smile on face. Financial structure is corrupt, medical field service is expensive and not qualify, mostly this system look like Anarchism rather then capitalism. Well., turn your face to the some true facts!
No one care about you, everyone look inside your pack.
