I had a (assumed) Leftist commenter post a snide remark on one of my posts about Obama and his openly stated plans to become a gun-grabbing tyrant. He said we have no “proof” that Obama is going to try to take our guns (I guess Obama saying he is going to use executive orders to do so is not “proof” to the irrational Left, but…). So, I present the ultimate in proof: a warning from a bonafide former communist nation:
Various armies, such as the Poles, during the Смута (Times of Troubles), or Napoleon, or the Germans even as the Tsarist state collapsed under the weight of WW1 and Wall Street monies, found that holding Russian lands was much much harder than taking them and taking was no easy walk in the park but a blood bath all its own. In holding, one faced an extremely well armed and aggressive population Hell bent on exterminating or driving out the aggressor.
This well armed population was what allowed the various White factions to rise up, no matter how disorganized politically and militarily they were in 1918 and wage a savage civil war against the Reds. It should be noted that many of these armies were armed peasants, villagers, farmers and merchants, protecting their own. If it had not been for Washington’s clandestine support of and for the Reds, history would have gone quite differently.
It should be noted that Pravda is being truthful when it says Washington was partially responsible for the rise of Communism. The American government DID support the Communists, and the political elites in the American Left have openly fawned at the Communist movement ever since. Just read history.
I have just one thing to add to Pravda’s article:
