Russian News Outlet Pravda Labels Obama a ‘Communist’ in Scathing OpEd
http://www.theblaze.com ^ | November 26, 2012 | Tiffany Gabbay

Posted on 11/26/2012 1:32:03 PM PST by NKP_Vet

The famed Russian news site “Pravda,” which ironically was formed as the official Communist publication of the former Soviet Union, recently released a scathing opinion column entitled, “Obama’s Soviet Mistake,” in which the author unabashedly labels the U.S. president a “Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so.”

Now this is funny. When the former official publication of the communist Soviet Union calls someone a communist, you better take notice. But then again, anyone with a half a brain knows the Kenyan is a communist. Let's see if Bill O'Reilly touches this one with a 10 foot pole. Hannity of course will. If loudmouth Bill even mentions the article he'll call it nonsense. CNN and PMSNBC will not air the story in any form.

Pravda hates commies now worse than almost half the USA does! It’s so funny. If it wasn’t tragic. It might TAKE the USA getting burned that bad to teach it that lesson.

“And, as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.

No angel born in Hell could break that Satan’s spell

And, as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite, I saw...

Satan laughing with delight the day the music died

He was singing, bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry

Them good ol’ boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing...

This’ll be the day that I die

This’ll be the day that I die

So, the question remains:

How long will America suffer and to what depths?

Who would know better than those who are/were Communists? He’s following the guidelines to the letter while we are told we don’t see what we see, or hear what we hear,or know what we know.

If 30 years ago you told me that one day Pravda would criticize a US president as being a communist, I’d figure someone was high on something. Perhaps I’m high right now, and this is just a very long and very bad “trip”.

This just a battle of wills on who will be the dominate communist country in the world.

So far, our former republic has the upper hand and ‘Thank Obama (formally God), we will be number one. /s

Hmmmm.....
The Ghosts of Hungarian Communism Haunt U.S. Oct 22, 2012: Thomas Peterffy, who in 1965 fled Communist Hungary, recently put out an ad stating:

I grew up in a socialist country, and I have seen what that does to people. There is no hope, no freedom, no pride in achievement. The nation became poorer and poorer, and that’s what I see happening here. As a young boy I was fantasizing about one day going to America, making a success of myself, the American dream. America’s wealth comes from the efforts of people striving for success. Take away their incentive with bad-mouthing success and you take away the wealth that helps us take care of the needy. Yes, in socialism the rich will be poorer, but the poor will also be poorer. People lose interest in really working hard and creating jobs. I think this is a very slippery slope. It seems like people don’t learn from the past. That’s why I’m voting Republican and putting this ad on television".

AND...

"It is with a strange feeling that those of us who come from the Soviet Union look upon the West of today. It is as though we were neither neighbours on the same planet, nor contemporaries -and yet we contemplate the West from what will be your future, or look back seventy years, to see our past suddenly repeating itself. And what we see is always the same, always the same as it was then: adults deferring to the opinion of their children; the younger generation carried away by shallow worthless ideas; professors scared of being unfashionable; journalists refusing to take responsibility for the words they squander so profusely; universal sympathy for revolutionary extremists; people with serious objections unable or unwilling to voice them; the majority passively obsessed by a feeling of doom; feeble governments; societies whose defensive reactions have become paralysed; spiritual confusion leading to political upheaval.What will happen as a result of all this lies ahead of us. But the time is near, and from bitter memory we can easily predict what these events will be".
Excerpt from "West's Betrayal of Civilisation" by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

30 years ago, in 1983, I remember when KAL-007 was shot down. At that time, just from craps and giggles, I asked this question. "What if in the future, the USA became the USSR and the USSR became the USA? Also, what if we, the US, became the Evil Empire?" I could hear a pin drop. I was 17 then, a junior in high school.

Russia has some ways to go but in many cases, freer than we are now. Putin, although former KGB, he is more of an authoritarian on things, but that always has been Russia. Even so, here in 2012, I have to borrow Pogo Possum's favorite quote, "I see the enemy, he is us."

Ever feel like you went to sleep on planet Earth and woke up in "Bizzaro World" where everything is backwards? Well, peeps, we are here.

This is irony, writ large and would be amusing were it not true. Unfortunately for America, it is true. And it only took us about 60 years to get to this sorry state where the American voters choose a hardcore Marxist to ‘lead’ their country, even as he systemically destroys it’s economy and it’s power. Our constitutional freedoms are already being contracted and will disappear completely before Obama and the Democrats are done with us. This will not end well and some day far in the future historians will be perplexed to note that we did it to ourselves.

There is one HUGE difference between Putin and Obama.

Putin loves his country and wants to make it number one in all things.

He will probably succeed............

Obama hates his country and wants to tear it down as fast as possible.

He will probably succeed...........

Obama and his fellow rats are communists to the core. The president is as spineless as Allende, as self-obsessed as Kim Il Sung, and as morally bankrupt as Stalin.

Pope Pius XI: With God and Jesus Christ excluded from political life, with authority derived not from God but from man, … the chief reason of the distinction between ruler and subject has been eliminated. The result is that society is tottering to its ruin because it no longer has a secure and solid foundation [Quas Primas].

While it may be very long and very bad, this time it’s real.

And yet nobody heeds the call for dividing the United States into the “Real USA” and the “SSA”, Soviet States of America.

The borders are already there. Just look at the map of the “red” areas (oh, unfortunate term!) and the “blue” areas from the recent election, divided by counties.

The “red” section is almost contiguous, the “blue” pockets are scattered and isolated from each other. The “red” part is capable of stand-alone economic strength, the “blue” areas are conclusively demonstrated to be unable to prepare or maintain any position of moral authority or business acumen.

Look at Detroit, and ask yourself, why foreign automobile manufacturers do not take over the now empty manufacturing facilities there? They go to Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Georgia and Texas. And build from the ground up.

One thing about it...the author definately knows America:

The author, Xavier Lerma, goes on to note how Obama’s “cult of personality” has mesmerized the ignorant in America, who will follow the hope and change icon in much the same way as ”fools” still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia.
