People mad about Che shirts that Defend Russia is the retarded right at its best.
I didn't say we should hold a parade for Lenin and Stalin. I said we should remember how much of the battle and death happened on the eastern front with Russia fighting Germany. What do you want? To just forget it and act like they contributed nothing to WWII? I mean that's what it seems like.
Yes the Soviet Nazi war was a battle of two monsterous leaders/govts but let's not act like we could have defeated the Nazis without the Soviets. I mean we would have eventually after we nuked Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, etc but that didn't happen.
All i am hopeful for is remembering the monsters for who they were and not forget that folks like putin were not only vessels of that in line but want to return to power in the same vein. Want to celebrate those soldiers sacrifice? Let’s also point out the suffering they created following orders.
They didn’t fight for our ideals. Our ideals whether they stand the test of time are far superior. those soldiers died for a system that remains corrupt and in opposite of some of the greatest ideas man has ever laid out.
If we are celebrating sacrifice by soldiers, there is no limit to what ideology in default we also are not rejecting .
