The Great Revolution Was Great! (Counter-rally in Leftist Stronghold)
Communists for Kerry ^ | August 14, 2004 | Communists for Kerry

Posted on 08/20/2004 9:16:00 PM PDT by Begin

On August 14, 2004, Communists For Kerry took up position in New York City's Union Square. For those of you not familiar with Union square, it is a sight to behold every Saturday. It is populated with every left wing nut group ranging from the Peoples Front of Judea to the Front For the Liberation of the Madagascar Dung Beetle. Needless to say we had to turn it into Soviet Union Square.

So the arrival of Lenin, Che and Castro didn't even warrant a second look. We hung our posters, distributed fliers with the Get Our Of Gulag Coupon on the front and the Party-Approved Slogans For Spontaneous Protests on the back. We handed out band aids from a box marked Kerry's free health care for all, delivered short but passionate speeches - End the two Americas and create one homogeneous welfare state! - and played communist marches using a bullhorn connected to an iPod.

At first the libs that came by to view our material were devoid of any sense of sarcasm, irony or satire. One individual who approached me said, "get your commie crap out of here; you're making John Kerry look bad!" Other libs thought we were really "cool" (wow, our heroes, real communists!).

That is until they read our literature and their faces turned to that angry twisted expression that only the lib face can do when confronted with a differing point of view (see: Bulldog licking piss off a nettle).

Next came the intellectual elitism. We were chastised by some angry gentlemen who became as confrontational as only tolerant liberals can be at the sight of opposition (see: Yeti, Loch Ness Monster & Happy Liberal).

They accused us of - wait for it folks - I kid you not . . . "fooling the average dumb American." Yes, folks, all of us are average dumb people, ignorant hicks who can't think for themselves and must instead be ruled by educated classes. If only we had read Noam Chomsky instead of bowling with a few of our neighbors. Then perhaps we wouldn't be driving those evil V8 pickup trucks and SUVs. We would be driving European cars with a hair dryer for an engine of course, as all enlightened people do.

Most people , however, took us at face value and had a laugh with us or at our expense. The "Free Healthcare" seemed to go down a real treat with everybody, even some die-hard libs were happy for a nanosecond.

As it turns out, the hardcore commies and radicals on Soviet Union Square are easier to get on with and have a decent political debate with than your average New York City Liberal. One bunch of young libs even went so far as to spend some of their trust fund on Super Soakers and splash their brand of tolerance upon us. They ran around us with plastic water guns calling us names and squirting water into our eyes -- and there didn't happen to be a single flower around that we could stick into their barrels. They disappeared as quickly as they came, running to tell other peace-loving, anti-gun comrades about their slaying of the dragon of violence and intolerance. It was about to start raining anyway.

They actually believed that six simpletons dressed as communist icons talking a load of nonsense could fool the average dumb American. We were called a "threat to society" and our actions were "reprehensible." But somehow the two young guys visiting New York from Oklahoma figured our sarcasm and irony straight away. The supposedly ignorant hicks passed the irony test better than the New York elites did. Apparently they hadn't received the lib memo.

Out-freakin'-standing!

What's sad is that the CPUSA is backing Kerry to the hilt, so you fellas were right on the money.

Front For the Liberation of the Madagascar Dung Beetle.. a noble undertaking indeed. ;-)

This striking scarab beetle Helictopleurus quadripunctatus from the dry forests of Madagascar is one of many scarabs that collect and bury dung on which to rear their larvae. This particular species will utilize only the pellets of dung from the Verreaux’s sifaka, a type of lemur.

I absolutely LOVE your site...unfortunately, I did not realize y'all were posting at the same time. Sorry for the duplicate posting!

I also posted on your site a link I thought you might be interested in : Sovietski Collection. Really nice items.

"Sovietski Collection, headquartered in San Diego, CA, was founded in 1992 shortly after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Mitch Siegler, the company’s President, began traveling to Russia more than a decade ago and soon discovered a treasure trove of Russian-made products which he felt would appeal to American consumers. With Sasha, his Russian partner, Mitch began buying unusual gear, optics and military surplus produced by large, military factories. They also discovered antiques and vintage artifacts, like samovars, coins and silver tableware as well as enchanting handicrafts, like matryoshkas, lacquer boxes and folk art, which they began marketing in the U.S. The company began publishing the Sovietski Collection catalogue in 1994. In 2001, the company began publishing a second catalogue, Treasures from a Bygone Era, which offers an exciting array of European and European-inspired home décor and furnishings, jewelry, and decorative accessories."

Oh dear, it seems that some Freepers think that I am a part of Communists for Kerry. To clarify: I am in no way associated with that group. I simply thought that this rally was particulary funny, and decided to post a thread. Sorry for any confusion.

This is genius. I knew it was satire as soon as I sensed the positive tone to every attack. True communists and liberals act like Kerry does with the Swifties: Spiteful, acidic, depressed, and vengeful

Best line [New Yorker libs] using their trust funds to purchase super soakers...
