Isn't tearing down statues of Lenin more than 20 years after the fall of communism a little anachronistic?

I mean it's like holding a rally to protest against Nixon.

I always thought the Russians folks did all that fighting to KEEP WARM when their vodka supplies had run out.

My question would be, why is it still there 20 years after the fall of communism.

"Leninopad" - "Leninfall". Such a delightfully appropriate coinage. Squirm in ignominy, wretched Communist worms. Down with Lenin the Oppressor!

Hopefully the Ukrainians get a break from tyranny for a change. But it's still a lovely moment.

It would be nice to see Americans tearing down that statue of Lenin in Seattle. Are there any Americans in Seattle? I’d guess not. That damn commie statue has been standing there for 20 years.

Many Libs are now claiming (on another website) that Lenin and Stalin ruined Karl Marx and his ideas.

It is a symbolic rejection of Russian influence. Putin still thinks like a Soviet.

How many of Lenin did they have? Are there any still standing?
Will they melt them down “for bullets or plowshares”?

Here’s another 5 minute video. The Soros Obsessives are mourning. And there were more such incidents, I’ve seen somewhere a map of over a dozen towns where lenin status went down.

You keep embarrassing yourself, exposing your primitive, ignorant, paranoid obsessions and calling the well informed "Communists".

The video you posted is the same - as far as I can tell by a cursory look - as the one I posted.

Best leave the statue in Seattle of Lenin up, else be labeled "anachronistic" by some here. /

Unbelievable.

on the other side of this

is it only me, or is it a bit strange that now, 20 years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union there were still so many Lenin statues standing in the Ukraine????
