Virus#26: Chapter 26 Vlad the Impaler becomes TSAR: Putin and Holy Mother Russia

Chapter 26 “Vlad the Impaler Becomes TSAR! Putin and holy mother Russia”

As Russia was pounded by COVIDs its poor medical system collapsed quickly leading to a huge death count. Perpetual President Putin had many physicians daring to criticize the Russian medical system unfortunately fall out of windows to their death. The much-touted Russian COVID vaccine “Sputnik” which the Russian government had boasted a 97% success rate was in fact as documented by other countries having an efficacy rate of just over 50%.

It was during the 2021 vicious second wave of COVID-19 in the midst of massive social unrest that Putin made his classical Russian move of adoration and comfort with absolute control and the arrest of any media he hadn’t already murdered or arrested. Siberia would soon be so full of malcontents it would have to turn its “No Vacancy” signs on.

To divert attention from a medical system that had fallen into disrepair he declared in 2022 Mother Russia and the Holy Russian Orthodox Church a necessity to defeat the unholy COVID-19 and declared himself the new Tsar of Russia with full support of the Russian Orthodox church. A grand coronation and millions of free vodka bottles were handed out to the masses. His trusted oligarch compadres were designated as counts and given political control over various regions of the country.

After the collapse of communism how did billions of dollars of state enterprises end up in the hands of a few oligarchs? Crime, corruption and theft of state property guided by Vlad the Impaler. My Russian cardiologist friends used this term after a few shots of vodka at international cardiologist’s conventions because opposition to Tsar Putin meant death not necessarily by impaling but death nonetheless. His credentials as former KGB head, protection of his clique of loyal oligarchs and perpetual leader of the government took us back to the good old days of Tsarist Russia.

Vlad’s ascension into the Holy Leader of Mother Russia did not quell the rising COVID death rate but insulated him against any criticism as the bearded priests of Russian Orthodoxy reinforced his holy presence.

Putin had been moving toward godliness over the past few years and he had finally attained it. A beautiful Stalinist movement combined with a true Rasputinistic character. A devil in revisionist Russian history. If you think Putin looked rugged bare chested on a horse he looked positively regal with his crown.
