    “Leninism was born, grew up and got stronger in the merciless fight against opportunism.” But then the bourgeois emotional-driven mossbacks and cunning criminal Stalinists gutted and transformed Leninism into a hollow, cult-driven ideology where the masses were misled and misinformed (and continue to be). Note the misled textile union workers holding posters of Kaganovich and Kalinin, two ultra-conservative bumpkins who were the antithesis of socialist progressive thought.

      Here is a new word for you…Obamunism. Its much worse than Leninism and Stalinism put together.

      • L.S.Zlatopolsky says:

        So,the USA is currently under the bootheel of Obamunism?

        Spoken like a true middle-class american; knows NOTHING of the real world, but is prepared to defend the FoxNews lies until they inconvenience him. Stalinism KILLED millions, poisoned thousands of square miles of the planet and destroyed what used to be a beautiful country. The Republicans brought on 9/11, started the war, & the bank failures, & the bankruptcies, & the melt-down of the economy! Maybe if you looked in the mirror, you could spot the REAL cause of the decay, and it ain’t Obomunism!!!

          um, actually, Obama is responsible for our current malaise.

          • DO says:

            um, actually, one Obama wouldn’t be able to run your country down so far on his own. It started way, way earlier, probably during Raegan’s administration.

    Hope the OGPU men got what they deserved, like all Chekists.

    Russia’s greatest natural resource is those big, healthy Russian women. You need to start listening to them.
