In 1934 a high-ranking member of the Communist Party, Sergei Kirov, was assassinated, Cornell historian Holly Case wrote in The Chronicle Review. His death, likely orchestrated by Stalin himself, was used to initiate a mass persecution that would result in over a million imprisoned and hundreds of thousands killed.
Actually, shes a bit off on the casualty count, we observed. ...
The late Alexander Yakovlev, the lifelong Soviet apparatchik who in the 1980s became the chief reformer and close aide to Mikhail Gorbachev, and who, in the post-Soviet 1990s, was tasked with the grisly assignment of trying to total the victims of Soviet repression, estimated that Stalin alone was responsible for the deaths of 60 to 70 million, a stunning number two to three times higher than estimates in The Black Book of Communism, Grove City College historian Paul Kengor has noted.
...Case wrote in a letter to us. Many of Stalins victims came before that due to collectivization and dekulakization, which was likely why he initiated the Purge in the first place (to create scapegoats for those atrocities). I would appreciate it if you would acknowledge your mistake and withdraw your post, otherwise I will simply conclude that you are ideologically motivated rather than interested in the truth not unlike Stalin, in fact.
... the UN, never a virulently anti-Soviet source, has noted that during the Ukrainian famine (1932-1933), It was estimated that about 25,000 Ukrainians were dying every day during the Famine. ..." & from the Russian Archives themselves, by way of the Library of Congress: ...During the ensuing Great Terror, which included the notorious show trials of Stalins former Bolshevik opponents in 1936-1938 and reached its peak in 1937 and 1938, millions of innocent Soviet citizens were sent off to labor camps or killed in prison.

So.. you’re just here to promote your own stuff, huh?
How many hits have you gotten out of this marketing plan?
Have you paid anything for this advertising?
Hitler was a nowhere piker compared to Stalin.
The message is this: Communism kills entire nations. The idiot Baby Boomer generation saw this in real time when the Khmer Rouge did exactly what the Evil Right Winger’s said they would in the aftermath of their victory: they massacred 2.5 million people, about 1/3 of the Cambodian populace.
Communists always do this. They brook no opposition and make no apologies for totalitarian power.
And we have the very same people now in power in Washington.
Imagine what they really have in mind for us.
I have a great analysis of the situation, but..

This pulls him close to Mao for #1.
Why not just post the entire article instead of incongruent snippets?

I like finding out about web sites or sources of information that provide a counter to the leftist media onslaught.
Free Republic is a great place to find out about conservative sites or resources we might not otherwise come across.

Official policy is “If it’s yours, post in full.”
If you don’t like official policy, take it up with the one who makes it.

I and I am sure many others learn of new resources from Free Republic all the time and are greatly appreciative of it.
I am sure Admin Moderators will take care of their own business.
Apostrophe alert: right wingers, not right winger’s.
You’re missing the point.
Read it AGAIN.
Especially the “send traffic FROM FR to somehwhere else” parts.
When someone cuts in front of you in line, do you wait for a cop to show up and dress 'em down?
No, they just complain about it.
And then gripe to everyone else about it.
Just like they’re doing here.
3 Similarities between pimp-busters and democrats:
1. They want to define who is a journalist.
2. They utilize techniques that work against their stated goald (posting in blog threads... thus bumping the thread and provide more hits)
3. They interchange “policy” and “suggestion” as convient to them. The title of your “policy” post was “A Suggestion for Bloggers Who Post at FR”.
