This is a miserable attempt by Russia Today to rehabilitate Joseph Stalin, the gravedigger of the Russian Revolution. Stalin’s purges of the 1930’s murdered millions of Bolsheviks who had fought in the Civil War (1918-1922) against the tsarist White Army & its imperialist backers. This made the USSR more vulnerable to Hitler’s surprise attack in the summer of 1941, which almost succeeded. Only Russia’s vast expanses, unlimited manpower, and centralized production (a product of the 1917 Revolution) saved Stalin in WWII.
Joseph Stalin was a crude & ignorant being, who played little role in the Russian Revolution. As an early Bolshevik, Stalin worked his way up the growing bureaucracy through intrigue & back-stabbing politics. He ordered the exile, and eventual murder of Leon Trotsky, the greatest revolutionary theorist of the 20th century.
Russians were lied to for decades about their history, which is why the grip of Stalinism still remains, nearly 30 years after the fall of the Soviet Union. Stalin has nothing to do with Marxism, and he is correctly understood as the planned-economy version of Adolph Hitler. Only pseudo-intellectual fascists like George Szamuely try to rehabilitate him.
This was a comment that RT refused to post, which is why it is now published here. Notice there is no profanity, no threats of violence, nor slander. Just the truth, which is even worse for these people. That’s why it’s denylisted.
Here’s another recent New York Times propaganda piece, this one is intended to rehabilitate violent LGBT feminism. “‘Overlooked No More: Valerie Solanas, Radical Feminist Who Shot Andy Warhol’ by Bonnie Wertheim. Overlooked is a series of obituaries about remarkable people whose deaths, beginning in 1851, went unreported in The Times.”
The Andy Warhol Museum is aware of this article, but refuses to condemn it, due to their gay politics. For these epigones, it’s okay for Valarie Solanas to shoot Andy Warhol. If that’s not fascist, then what is?
