...dwarfs the handful of aberrant pro-Nazi academics in America."

No sh*t. I've never met a pro-Nazi academic, though.



In 1983 the Indiana University historian Robert F. Byrnes collected essays from 35 experts on the Soviet Union –– the cream of American academia –– in a book titled After Brezhnev. Their conclusion: Any U.S. thought of winning the Cold War was a pipe dream. "The Soviet Union is going to remain a stable state, with a very stable, conservative, immobile government," Byrnes said in an interview, summing up the book. "We don't see any collapse or weakening of the Soviet system."

Barely six years later, the Soviet empire began falling apart. By 1991 it had vanished from the face of the earth. Did Professor Byrnes call a press conference to offer an apology for the collective stupidity of his colleagues, or for his part in recording it? Did he edit a new work titled Gosh, We Didn't Know Our Ass From Our Elbow? Hardly. Being part of the American chattering class means never having to say you're sorry.

I know I'm preaching to the choir, but it's worth the read.

You can take the Soviet out of Russia, you cannot take the Russian out of Russia.
I respect the Russian people and so should you.

I've heard more than one politician in this country say that that the end of the Soviet Union was the worst thing that ever happened. Putin has said the same thing as well, if I recall.

I think Vince Cable said he admired Mao more than anyone.

So yeah, culturally it lives on in the minds of these idiots.

I've only read the first page so far, but it's good.

Bump for others.

I have often thought that fellow-traveling academics, hollywood lefties, Abraham Lincoln Brigade members and the like - all of the mob who shilled for the USSR from 1917 until the end - should be rounded up, and the dead ones dug up, and publicly humiliated. They possessed a rare combination of gullibility, hubris, and evil that should not be permitted to pass quietly from the world.

fuck Russia and the Russians. They're the thugs of Europe and would be better suited belonging to the continent of Africa.

No.

I'm sure there are many nice individuals but anytime you get 10 or 13 of them together they seem to want to pile on top of a shitty armored vehicle and invade other countries. Fuck them and fuck their murderous government.

Some dipshit of an Arfcommer posted pictures a few years ago of his Soviet-themed gun room. Soviet flags all over, seem to recall a propaganda poster or two.

It's a losing battle against drooling stupidity.

Eloquently stated. But it didn't end in '91. It's still going on. The communism isn't flourishing in Havana or Pyongyang––its most fertile ground is in American university campuses. I say that because that is what I'm familiar with, but based on what I've read, this phenomenom is not restricted to american schools.

That doesn't have to mean that he agrees with the ethics or politics, though.

I have real Nazi stuff, myself. I don't agree with the ethics. I would love a Russian gun room with propoganda posters and stuff. And, it can be interesting to see the traces of those old posters popping up in modern western culture - like subways in London. Actually, I really love those old posters that folks have. It's pretty cool stuff.

If you have a room dedicated to Nazi or Soviet propaganda, flags, etc, there are only two possibilities: You are an idiot who doesn't know what those things actually mean, OR you are actually a Nazi or Soviet communist.

Its perfectly possible to enjoy old posters or whatnot without taking it to a retarded level.

Let's include the shills for the 'Maoist' red revolution that paralleled the Soviet political and social genocides.

Evil does exist. It is real. Denial encourages it and allows it to flourish and spread.

you'd pull out 1/3 the House and 1/4 of the Senate and most of the White House Staff and probably 1/2 the School adminstration and 90% of the College admins and prof's in 50 states

Yeah I don't think that means he supports communism, just that he likes Soviet guns and equipment. There are a tons of people on this site with all sorts of Soviet crap that are far from communist.

It means the Russians as a people have suffered far more hardship than the average American can ever imagine and they have managed to survive as a people.
Something to consider as we the people are marched along a socialist path.
Communism, Socialism, Capitalism, Democracy, Republican ideals are all concepts of government while the heart and will of the people are what make a nation.
Flying fuck Jesus ain't got nuthin to do with it and you probably still have not one clue as to what I am saying,,,
