The world watched and Satan smiled.
From J J. Sefton.
It’s also the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. Sunday was supposed to have seen the glorious cadres of Antifa storm the White House and raise their swastika, er hammer and sickle, er whatsits on the flagpole and declare victory over whitey, or something. It fizzled. That said, considering the GOP softball team, Mandalay Bay, Sutherland Springs and Rand Paul – yes I am including all those things so sue me – as well as what’s happening on campuses and the looming nexus of the Left and Islamofascism on our shores, we ignore these bastards at our own peril. No matter what, our country and its sacred institutions have been so thoroughly damaged over the past 50-100 years (especially the past eight) that despite the complete failure of communism and socialism that has ruined nation after nation and caused the death of at least 150 million people in less than a century, the school systems are still infested with diehards who are mind-raping another generation of our children. That has to be stopped, some way, somehow. And that’s the real war we have to fight. Or elections don’t mean a damn thing. That said…
GET OUT AND VOTE!!!
One of the saddest byproduct of WW1 was the collapse of Tsarist Russia. Led by a decent but totally clueless Nicholas II and a Russian army led by incompetent Generals fighting a 20th century war with 19th century tactics. Russian solders died by the millions. The economy of Russia which had been doing fairly well prior to the outbreak of WW1 was devastated by the war. This of course led to a perfect storm of conditions that led to the overthrow of the Tsar in February 1917.
Unfortunately Through a series of missteps the Provisional Government was itself overthrown in November of that year. The opportunity of creating a truly representative democracy in Russia was crushed. Replaced with the so called dictatorship of the proletariat. This endured for the next 74 years until Dec. of 1991 when it all came tumbling down.
In the meantime we had the spectacle of show trials , mass executions, and Gulags. The Gulags provided the slave labor that enabled the Soviet State to become a world superpower in such a short time and during WW2 was able to drown the Nazi armies in a sea of Russian blood.
The least of a Communist dictator’s worry’s is public opinion.
Could such a revolution happen in America? The truth is that unlike the violent take over of Russia that happened in ten days. America has been experiencing a slow motion revolution since the 1930’s.
Six phases from freedom to misery.
Scarcity, terror, and the mass murder of more than 100 million victims are communism’s main contributions to human history. As we mark the centennial of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia on November 7, we should never forget that legacy. Communism is a fount of human misery and death. Few today really understand what that system of so-called government is all about.
In a nutshell, communism enforces a privileged elite’s centralization of power. This means it always puts too much power into the hands of too few people. They tend to weasel their way into power as their ventriloquized agitators use talking points like “justice” and “equality” while promoting a false illusion of public support.
And then there is this.
More than four-in-ten U.S. millennials would prefer to live under socialism than capitalism, according to a new survey by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.
When given the choice to pick a preferred system of government, 44 percent of millennials responded that they would rather live in a socialist country while another seven percent opted for a communist state. Capitalism, on the other hand, was preferred by 42 percent of millennial respondents, with the remaining 14 percent split evenly between fascism and communism.
“Communism isn’t back: It never left. We simply forgot about it.”

Now it not that there hasn’t been knowledge of the atrocities of Communism/Socialism, in Russia, China, Cuba, Cambodia, North Korea, and lately in Venezuela. There are dozens of books and documentaries widely available to read and view. Have millennials ever bothered to read and study them? One thing is likely certain, their
college professors political commissars certainly don’t encourage it.
These idiots should go live with the people of Venezuela for six months.
Share equally the misery.
