New Culture Minister Proposes Burying Lenin
RIA Novosti ^ | 6/9/12

Posted on 06/21/2012 7:07:41 AM PDT by marshmallow

Russia's culture minister suggested on Saturday burying the body of former Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin and turning his Moscow mausoleum into a museum, but warned that it was only his "private opinion."

Speaking to Ekho Moskvy radio, Vladimir Medinsky said it was "absurd" that the Bolshevik revolutionary's embalmed body was still on public display by the Kremlin walls.

The founder of the Soviet state has been in his tomb since his death in 1924.

"The body of any person should be laid to rest, as has been from time immemorial," Medinsky, who replaced Alexander Avdeyev as Culture Minister in a government reshuffle last month, told the radion sation, adding that "all rituals" pertaining to the burial of a state figure should be observed.

They should move his body around Moscow placing it in various positions from week to week. Maybe one week lying in bed watching TV. Next week sitting at a piano. Week after, reading a magazine while sitting on the john, etc.

If Russia is truly done with Communism and are now “Capitalists”, why do they still support Marxist dictatorships such as Venezuela, Cuba, other far left regimes throughout Latin America, the ChiComs and North Korea? Their criticisms of Obama being a Socialist are bogus. If they really are now opposed to Socialism/Communism they would join us (pre-Obama) in condemning these regimes, not help build them up.

Did Communism Fake Its Own Death in 1991?
American Thinker ^ | January 16, 2010 | Jason McNew

In a [] 1984 book [New Lies for Old], ex-KGB Major Anatoliy Golitsyn predicted the liberalization of the Soviet Bloc and claimed that it would be a strategic deception. ..."

"Golitsyn's argument was that beginning in about 1960, the Soviet Union embarked on a strategy of massive long-range strategic deception which would span several decades and result in the destruction of Western capitalism and the erection of a communist world government."

"Golitsyn published his second book, The Perestroika Deception, after the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991. This book contained further analysis of the liberalization, in addition to previously classified memoranda submitted by Golitsyn to the CIA. The two books must be read together to get a complete picture of Golitsyn's thesis."

“I came, not to praise Lenin; but to bury him. The evil that men do live after them. The good is oft interred with the bones, So let it be with Lenin.”

No, hopefully away from it. Putin is Lenin's descendent. Perhaps its he who does not want Lenin buried.

How about simply:
1. Burning his body.
2. Changing the name of Leningrad back to whatever it was called before that maggot rose to power.
3. Changing the history Russian history books to portray Lenin and all of his friends and successors as the evil slavemasters they were/are.

That was done 20 years ago. Since then, it is now again called St. Petersburg.
