All bow down! The (not so) pretty picture that has been and will always be Communism and its supporters.
A little collateral bloodshed on behalf of The People is to be expected.

UPDATE 5/1/18: A Happy, Happy May Day! The NY Times celebrates the many successes of Communism’s first glorious century, neglecting to mention the scores of millions of dead bodies, enslaved souls and the all-round misery it has gifted humanity.

UPDATE 2/2/18: How many ruined lives and dead bodies does it take to realize that Marx/Lenin/Stalin/Mao/Castro/Che/Ho/Chavez and all their fans and imitators around the world had/have REALLY bad ideas? Perhaps freedom might be a better solution…that is, if ruthless, heartless power and control over millions is not one’s goal.

ORIGINAL POST 10/28/17: If the recent birthday of the U.S. Constitution is something to celebrate, the centennial of the Russian Revolution, October 24, 2017, is not. (By conspicuously ignoring this landmark, the Russians themselves seem to agree).Marxism as world power politics based on envy, hatred, division, lies, tyranny and murder was launched a century ago; and all humanity within and beyond the former Soviet Union continues to be infected, leaving human liberty in permanent, potential peril. Those who doubt are invited to look upon  scores and scores and scores of millions of corpses left in Marxism’s wake and still piling up in such remaining People’s Paradises as Cuba, North Korea, and China.

Who countenanced and described it better than Orwell with “Animal Farm” and “1984”? And within our own porous American borders, we are still plagued by those insatiable pigs, more equal than the rest of us, tirelessly promising Transformation and Equality for All Americans…while delivering only enslavement for the masses and total power for themselves.

 Trump’s election represents America’s re-awakened will to eradicate those pigs from our politics and re-introduce the basic American concepts of INDIVIDUAL life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. NOW is perhaps our final opportunity to turn back an historical century of horror, the cancerous living hell Lenin & Stalin (and his Alinsky-inspired American counterparts Barack and Mrs. Bill) have envisioned for us.

We dodged this one...for the time being.
We dodged this one…for the time being.

  1. My father was exiled to the Soviet Gulag. and through a miracle, he got out so I have a keen interest in this subject. Here are two relevant quotes, the first from historian Alan Charles Kors, the second from a broadcast by baseball announcer Vin Scully. I hope these are of interest.

    From historian Alan Charles Kors’s “Can There Be an ‘After Socialism’?” for the Atlas Society, Sept. 27, 2003:
    No cause, ever, in the history of all mankind, has produced more cold-blooded tyrants, more slaughtered innocents, and more orphans than socialism with power. It surpassed, exponentially, all other systems of production in turning out the dead. The bodies are all around us. And here is the problem: No one talks about them. No one honors them. No one does penance for them. No one has committed suicide for having been an apologist for those who did this to them. No one pays for them. No one is hunted down to account for them. It is exactly what Solzhenitsyn foresaw in The Gulag Archipelago: “No, no one would have to answer. No one would be looked into.” . . .
    To be moral beings, we must acknowledge these awful things appropriately and bear witness to the responsibilities of these most murderous times. Until socialism—like Nazism or fascism confronted by the death camps and the slaughter of innocents—is confronted with its lived reality, the greatest atrocities of all recorded human life, we will not live “after socialism.”
    It will not happen. The pathology of Western intellectuals has committed them to an adversarial relationship with the culture—free markets and individual rights—that has produced the greatest alleviation of suffering; the greatest liberation from want, ignorance, and superstition; and the greatest increase of bounty and opportunity in the history of all human life.
    This pathology allows Western intellectuals to step around the Everest of bodies of the victims of Communism without a tear, a scruple, a regret, an act of contrition, or a reevaluation of self, soul, and mind.

    Vin Scully’s broadcast. You should listen to this on You Tube. It’s priceless. It’s got a humorous component. When reading, remember it’s from a live broadcast of a baseball game.

    “Perez, 25 years old, originally drafted by the Tigers. Lives in Venezuela. Boy, can you imagine you’re a young kid, you’re playing in the United States, you’re from Venezuela, and every time you look at the news it’s a nightmare… Socialism failing to work, as it always does, this time in Venezuela. You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden, there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez. Hello! Anyway, 0-and-2.”

    1. Aw, c’mon. Let’s give communism/socialism just one more try. What are we batting? 0-93? I’m sure we’ll get it right this time. By the way, I mention Vin Scully as virtually the only unchic, un-Progressive in Obama’s final passing out of Medal of Freedom party favors last fall. One more honor now rendered meaningless. Look up “Medal of Freedom” in the search function at the top of the left column. Vin must’ve been asking himself how he’d gotten mistakenly mixed up on that list.

  2. As usual, you’re ahead of me. I figured you’d know about Vin Scully, but I really appreciate the context you created. As to the Alan Kors, it summarizes the goals of much of my creative work of the last twenty-five years. He received a Medal of Freedom as well, but I think it was from George W. Bush
