Posted on 02/22/2014 2:02:52 PM PST by Robwin
Ukrainian protesters tore through towns all over their nation, ripping down statues of Vladimir Lenin, the communist dictator who had forced the Ukrainians under the Russian yoke after the Bolshevik revolution.
The Ukrainians drove their corrupt, pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovich from the capitol of Kiev, while the opposition leader former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was freed from prison.
Amazing images of protesters tearing down the iconic face of socialism V.I. Lenin (also known as Vladimir Ulyanov) erupted into a fury on social media last night.
These photos are truly inspiring at least to those able to recognize the significance of young people yearning to throw off the legacy of an oppressive system of government: socialism.

Obama MSM reports “Ukranian people love their socialism to pieces’
Good. I support smashing commie to statues to tiny bits.
Good. I support smashing commie to statues to tiny bits.
I love this. How ironic they used a hammer.
This was in December....
It’s raining Lenin - Hallelujah
It’s raining Lenin - Amen
I’m gonna go out - I’m gonna let myself get
Absolutely soaking wet
Oh oh...Obama and Soros won’t like that...
Obviously , they know something Obama and the Democrats do not.
I like the picture, not sure of the guy smashing the statue wearing what appears to be a Palestinian keffiyeh (scarf). A lot of protesters wear them thinking it’s cool (huh?), so am not sure if he’s about freedom from socialism/marxism, or is whacking old Vladimir Lenin because he was an atheist (whom muslims hate greatly)or Russians in general because of their long time feud in the Caucasus and invasion of Afghanistan. Anyone have some light to shed on this?
Guess I missed that part of “The Longest Day” where the red army stormed ashore at Normandy.
Alas, not a lot of hope for Fremont at this time. Seattle and it’s neighborhoods are so thoroughly infested with leftist cockroaches presently it’s incredible (and seemingly hopeless). Just driving through the place makes me want to take a shower. There’s always been a deeply entrenched left-wing establishment there, but I do remember Seattle during better times. Such a lovely place...sad what happened.
I understand it is made of bronze? Would mean it is hollow, yes? Some enterprising patriot with a working knowledge of chemistry may yet find the right kind of acid to apply some night which would melt that evil bastard’s metal head.
Nice and quiet like.
Amen to that. Lenin was lot more evil than he was made out to be.
It was all that upstaging by Stalin.
The bloody hand is a nice touch. The place is full of leftists. Stupid ones too. I get a kick out of where the statue is - in front of a Taco Bell(?) and all sorts of other Capitalistic stores and businesses. The statue has a decoration on it of some sort a lot/most of the time. Rainbow crap for gay pride days, goofy hats, etc.
I get such a kick out of it as I just view it that they are defacing Lenin, and the ideas that he stood for. That was the intent of the guy that brought it over - he wanted it to stand in America as a sort of war trophy.
So that is how I view it.
One of the people I shoot NRA Highpower with told me he had a few beers once in Fremont and on the way to his car, relieved himself on it. He also told me that it was obvious when he did it that he wasn’t the first to do so.
Wow - Lenin’s not communist enough for them...
The goal of socialism is communism.
The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.
Vladimir Lenin.............................. (this one sounds like zer0's US today. )
Now that's entertainment.
Per the photo, why did the sculptor give Obama a beard?
Obama: No! Sacrilege!
Stalin had just about zero to do with D-Day itself. He was too involved with his own troop/resources build up for his take over assault on Eastern Europe. He sided with Roosevelt vs Churchill to manipulate where the invasion in the West would occur. (That was it!) Churchill wanted to just keep pushing north from Italy as we were already there, but that would have put the US/British forces right in the middle of Stalin’s expansionist agenda, as we would have had to swing east of the Italian Alps through today’s Slovenia. The Normandy invasion quickly bogged down and Churchill had to practically beg Stalin to begin his Eastern Campaign early to ease German resistance on the Western Front. The Soviet push, Operation Bagration, began 16 days after the D-Day Invasion. Stalin’s bust must go!
Smashing Lenin statues is a clear symbol of something. :p
As long as they don’t smash statues of Borodin, Shostakovitch, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakoff, Rachmaninoff...
Nope, but he’s just right for Pootie-Poo. I bet he’s shedding a tear in the Kremlin tonight.
A front end loader with a bucket would take care of nice and quick.
But Mr. Edwards said that regardless of what Stalin did on the Eastern Front, none of his forces were on the shores of Normandy that day..................................... Little known fact, yes there were Russian troops at the Normandy Landing. They were assigned there to help our forces via Propaganda Units, to talk the OST Troops into surrendering. It was also a front page story in what I believe was Stars and Stripes 6/44 if I recall correctly. I read it at Ft.Leavenworth, in their Library Achives. I was surprised to see it, photos and all.
Because if Obama had a statue, that's what he'd look like.
Wow, I bet that felt good
I hear ya Gene.I am watching this closely. I just hope they do not go from the frying pan into the fire
Where is that statue?
