Russia is one of those communist countries that likes to think it’s not really communist anymore. Despite its state-owned businesses and heavy-handed government, Russia’s regime-controlled media likes to hold it up as a shining example of positive progress and enlightenment.
Then there’s America, a capitalist country increasingly turning into a communist stronghold, with state-owned businesses, a heavy-handed government and a regime-controlled media.
That’s not to say that the United States is completely comparable to Russia just yet. But it’s still telling when Russia’s Pravda – a newspaper even liberal-leaning Wikipedia labels as communist – has this to say about America’s most recent electoral decision and its consequences…
“Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.”
“… O'bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like "fast and furious" and there is still no sign of ending it. He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama's fools and Stalin's fools share the same drink of illusion.”
“Russia lost its' civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic… The question is how long will the once ‘Land of the Free’ remain the United Socialist States of America? Their suffering has only begun. Bye bye Miss American Pie! You know the song you hippies. Sing it!”
Again, Russia is more than a little hypocritical in crying “Communist!” At the same time, the article makes some unfortunately accurate points, including how Obama’s “cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance.”
How else could a President actively and obviously stimulating economic and cultural rot not only get a second term but even be hailed as “our lord and savior, Barack Obama?” (And yes, that actually happened on Sunday at the Soul Train Awards, courtesy of Hollywood’s Jamie Foxx.)
Hopefully we can evade the same negative progression that Russia and so many other communist countries have traveled. But judging by Foxx’s absurdly ignorant comment above, we have our work cut out for us.
