Exclusive interview with People's Cube director Oleg Atbashian who faces FIVE YEARS in jail for anti-terror posters

The artwork of Oleg Atbashian, a former Soviet dissident and now an American citizen, is familiar to many conservatives through the satirical website The People's Cube.

He is now facing large fines and up to five years in jail for putting up anti-terrorism posters at George Mason University.

In this exclusive interview, Oleg explains what happened:

Daniel Greenfield writes:

This was supposed to be a two-day poster campaign, to counteract the George Mason University hosting an official national conference for Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which is an anti-Semitic organization with well-documented ties to Hamas, a terrorist group whose stated goal is to exterminate the Jews.

The GMU poster campaign was conceived by the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Selective enforcement is now the main tool of the modern tyrant. Laws are interpreted to prevent any kind of opposition to Marxist and Islamic domination of the culture and legal system.

Posters and other materials supporting far left wing causes and Islamic ones (that at times even promote genocide of Israelis, and Jews overall) can be found on campuses across North America.

Some universities even hold "Israeli Apartheid Week", something which, in Canada, would be a hate crime if it was targeted, for example, at Saudi Arabia.

Bill is right when he says they walked into a dragon’s den without a plan or preparation.

We’re in the middle of reverse McCarthyism. So now it’s clear, that if we don’t maintain McCarthyism we end up at the opposite end of the spectrum. So, McCarthyism it is!! Of course, we’ll have to “do the Benji” first, but lesson learned.

The new McCarthyism will operate in two ways. Arresting Lefty’s on trumped up charges such as this situation. The other tact, is to charge the elites with Breach of Trust. They can’t do what they do in a Rule of Law capitalist democracy without Breaching the Trust that’s been put in them. For example, Trudeau, McCallum and Goodale mislead the public about “refugees” and failed to screen them and put them ahead of Canadians – to whom they have a Duty of Care (but to the immigrants they don’t). So that’s two counts Breach of Trust for each. Part three of the plan,will be to subject ppl applying for certain positions to psychiatric exam. For example, if one is running for Prime Minister. All Lefty’s are psychotic, and it will keep them out.

@ Jay Kelly . . . the accusations by the “Insane Media” against Trump’s appointment was just nonsense . . . several of his Jewish friends came out and said so !
The LS Media today is coming unhinged, don’t you just luv it ?
You live in Montreal . . . lol . . .
that goes a long way to explaining your inability to exhibit critical thinking!
Get back to us in a few years when the ME population reaches 25 or 30%!

I must say we the people of Canada are waking up and its about time, first order of business is get the liberals and their traitor counterparts in the other parties the hell out of power in this Country.

It can not wait for the next election, by that time there will be more laws and bills passed behind closed doors that will make their removal from power impossible.

We, in our little comfortable Canada, do not realize what true oppression is.
Oleg, and people who have lived in the history of oppression such as Poland know the consequences of speaking out for what is right.
North Americans are so shallow, unknowledgeable and sheltered. We haven’t a clue what reality is and what reality can be.
But, we in N. America do not respect or consult with our elders who have seen and lived through the times of these wars, oppressions and what Canada experienced, let alone what Europeans experienced over the last 70+ years.
We are dumb when it comes to history and we are numb when it comes to understanding what history means and can mean in our future.
This is a war on religion. It is the continual fight to oppress, suppress and obliterate Christianity. Call it politics, call it atheism, call it whatever. It is simply good versus evil. That equals Christianity versus secularism.

We can thank the main stream media, the puppets of the Marxists and we can blame ourselves. We neglected to effectively pass down the history, a proper sense of country. In Canada we considered Americans gauche for being openly patriotic. The importance of what our parents and grandparents fought and died for was put on the back burner. Many years of peace and relative stability have made us all complacent.

15 and 16 year olds will be voting in the next election. Forget the millennials they are already too corrupt. We need to make sure the kids coming up are saved from any more globalist propaganda. If it’s not too late, and if we can find a way to do it.

Seems we’re all being force-marched down that road to totalitarianism – AGAIN!
There are more than enough lessons from history, that have also been programmed into us from Hollywood, school, relatives, et al, over the decades, that we should know those lessons by heart. All the road signs to fascism, NAZIism, socialism, communism or what ever ism that subjugates its citizens are present…and we should know better!
So why the escalating surge of anti-Semitism in the West, why the huge losses of rights, liberties and freedoms, why the unequaled theft of our wealth by our masters and keepers (elected representatives) right in front of our very eyes, why the massive ignorance, apathy and complacency?
Just WTF is going on?
Well whatever the f**k it is I ain’t goin’ along with it!

Xanthippa Socrates – they had some mac-tac peel and stick stickers as well, these are a bitch to remove – think solvents and razor blades – they walked into the dragon’s den without any preparation or plan.

It is important to note that Oleg said they used ‘wheat paste’ as the glue for their posters: ‘wheat paste’ is simply flour and water. That is it.

It is designed to be washed off with the first rain. Property damage?!?!? With flour?!?!?

I guess its time for a solidarity protest on Portage and Main to tie up traffic for several hours. Worked for the North Dakota pipeline protesters.

I see Kelly is as a supporter of the north Americanized version of soviet communist repression of dissent/speech/thought. Typical of an obsequious menshevik . Also typical of a groomed subverter is Kelly’s constant non sequitur circular argumentation and logical fallacies – standard operational mode for the marxist perverse dialectic.
commented 2016-11-17 10:54:33 -0500
People need to defy the government and keep their children home. We need to destroy the Marxist monopoly that is brainwashing our children. We need to begin with education, where these rogue ideas are undermining our freedoms and democracy. They don’t teach anything in school anymore, just mind numbing obedience to communism.

Great interview Victor the treatment of this soviet defector is NOT America. Authorities reacted like the US is a soviet-occupied country – this is how dissidents were dealt with there and how they are oppressed in the sovietized US campus.

Oleg’s first mistake was underestimating his enemy – the agents of cultural marxism and the agents of radical Islamic fascism work hand in hand in the west because they have the same goal of deconstructing western culture and institutions.

As the poster depicts the chain of command/funding flow for Hammas-friendly protest orgs from terrorist financing to front groups to useful idiots with placards, standard KGB social destabilization technique – it is much the same as the command and finance chain for American communism – between the two, cultural marxism is the greater threat to a free nation.

As I say Oleg was naive about what he faced the marxist-Hammas alliance goes deep into the legal system – lawfare is a specialty of these subversive movements. As well he should have known that Virginia is one of the most politically correct (AKA sovietized) states next to Washington DC. Horowitz should pay his bills for sending him on such a fools errand.

School boards and small town newspapers , take them over and what a difference it would make
commented 2016-11-17 10:03:38 -0500
That selective enforcement is rampant in the Alberta School Board Association.

Canada has to speak up in a united voice and say not in our Country, no to the corruption, no to the collusion, no to mass immigration, no to laws against freedom of speech that are passed while Canadians no nothing about them until they are passed, thanks to our now corrupted media.

Canada is not allowed to hear news that is not approved by the liberal alliance, doesn’t that just piss you off Canada?

Canada now is a Communist Country, unless you are part of the liberal alliance of course.

Jay quit repeating lies. It makes you a ‘baiter’.
‘I have the sense’ that you are either very stupid or very stupid and evil.

Drew, Islam and Judaism are not “pitting themselves against one another” in Montreal.

Since the election in the United States I have the sense that Jews and Muslims in Montreal are getting along alright.

We need to get along well under the circumstances.

Would Jay Kelly be that well known anti-Semite per chance??
commented 2016-11-17 01:23:40 -0500
Jay Kelly the election was awesome. And it is not a rant , but stating of facts. And the only religion pitting themselves against others is Islam.
commented 2016-11-17 00:52:45 -0500
Oleg Atbashian may get five years in jail for his rant. Not likely, though, because he is a two-bit entertainer.

In the United States, which has just undergone a horrendous presidential election, nerves are frayed.

There is, understandably, a fear of religious jargon pitting one group against another. Jews and Muslims are already feeling it.

Donald Trump has named a well known anti-Semite as his advisor. Some Jewish commentators are hoping this will turn out well. It will not. Donald Trump has made it clear that hatred of “the other” is the currency. Jews will feel it first.
