Don’t Fear the Commie

| May 21, 2016

(With appropriate apologies to Donald Roesner and Blue Öyster Cult.  Regular TAH readers should recognize the inspiration for what follows.)


He said, good times now have come
Threat from Karl Marx now is gone
No one should fear the Commie
Not in the wind, the sun or the rain . . . never be like they were
Come on people . . . don’t fear the Commie
Come talk to the hand . . . don’t fear the Commie
They’re no longer a threat . . . don’t fear the Commie
Baby that’s the plan . . .

Da da da da da
Da da da da da

Dissidence is done
Once was here but now is gone
The kulaks and “enemies”
Are in the gulag for eternity . . . kulaks and “enemies”
40,000 men and women everyday . . . like kulaks and “enemies”
40,000 men and women everyday . . . redefine “happiness”
Another 40,000 coming everyday . . . you can be like they are
Come on people . . . don’t fear the Commie
Come talk to the hand . . . don’t fear the Commie
They’re no longer a threat . . . don’t fear the Commie
Baby that’s the plan . . .

Da da da da da
Da da da da da

Ignore those chains around your heels
Come with us to the killing fields
Or to Hotel Lubyanka
Where you check in but you never check out
Your door kicked open when they appear
Dissenting voices shall “disappear”
The curtains part and then they appear . . . saying don’t be afraid
There will be no pain . . . still they showed their fear
They forced them to their knees . . . as they started to cry
“Useful idiots” said goodbye . . . now would become like they are
Cocked pistols in their hands . . . one bullet enters the brain
Come on people . . . don’t fear the Commie


“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
— George Santayana


Author’s Note: the “one bullet enters the brain” line above is not a reference to suicide. A single pistol shot to the back of the head of a restrained prisoner (some accounts indicate the prisoner was forced to kneel) was the method of execution used by the NKVD at the Ostashkov prisoner of war camp during the Katyn massacre and, reputedly, elsewhere. The KGB also reputedly used the method.

Any sane person who is not a moron fears any and all authoritarian regimes.  Historically, Communism taking power has uniformly resulted in one thing:  the establishment of an authoritarian regime that has little or no respect for human rights – or for personal freedom.

    A moving target is always harder to hit.

    Perhaps the unbelievers should be forced to read ‘One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich’ without a puffy latte at hand. Or even better, visit the bone fields of Stalin’s pogroms…

    ‘Stalin’s regime is believed to have caused the deaths of approximately 20 million people.[2] Most of them were Soviet citizens. Some of the more notable mass graves include:

    Bykivnia – containing an estimated 100,000–225,000 corpses[3][4]
    Kurapaty – estimations range from 30,000 to 200,000 bodies found[5][better source needed]
    Butovo – over 20,000 confirmed killed[6]
    Communarka – about 10,000 killed [7]
    Sandarmokh – over 9,000 bodies discovered[8]
    Kolpashevo – over 1,000 bodies discovered in 1979, and then disposed of on instruction of the local party chief.[9]
    Other Stalin-era killing fields have been discovered,[10][11][12] one as recently as 2010.[13] In the areas near Kiev alone, there are mass graves in Uman, Bila Tserkva, Cherkasy and Zhytomyr.[14] Some were uncovered by the Germans during World War II; Katyn and Vinnitsa being the most infamous[15]

    In July 2010, a mass grave was discovered at St. Petersburg, which contained the corpses of 80 military officers executed during the Bolshevik “Red Terror” of 1918-21.[16]’ – Source Wiki, with citations.

    Yes, there’s no reason at all to fear the Commies… they’re just the boogeyman in the shadows… aren’t they?

    And in a few hours, he will indignantly huff about how he’s ignoring us while posting several paragraphs of how wrong we are.

    For all those beaten, for the broken heads,
    The fosterless, the simple, the oppressed,
    The ghosts in the burning city of our time…

    For those taken in rapid cars to the house and beaten
    By the skillful boys with the rubber fists,
    -Held down and beaten, the table cutting the loins
    Or kicked in the groin and left, with the muscles jerking
    Like a headless hen’s on the floor of the slaughter-house
    While they brought the next man in with his white eyes staring.
    For those who still said “Red Front” or “God save the Crown!”
    And for those who were not courageous
    But were beaten nevertheless.
    For those who spit out the bloody stumps of their teeth
    Quietly in the hall,
    Sleep well on stone or iron, watch for the time
    And kill the guard in the privy before they die,
    Those with the deep-socketed eyes and the lamp burning.

    For those who carry the scars, who walk lame – for those
    Whose nameless graves are made in the prison-yard
    And the earth smoothed back before the morning and the lime scattered.

    For those slain at once.
    For those living through the months and years
    Enduring, watching, hoping, going each day
    To the work or the queue for meat or the secret club,
    Living meanwhile, begetting children, smuggling guns,
    And found and killed at the end like rats in a drain.

    For those escaping
    Incredibly into exile and wandering there.
    For those who live in the small rooms of foreign cities
    And who yet think of the country, the long green grass,
    The childhood voices, the language, the way wind smelt then,
    The shape of rooms, the coffee drunk at the table,
    The talk with friends, the loved city, the waiter’s face,
    The gravestones, with the name, where they will not lie
    Nor in any of that earth.
    Their children are strangers.

    For those who planned and were leaders and were beaten
    And for those, humble and stupid, who had no plan
    But were denounced, but were angry, but told a joke,
    But could not explain, but were sent away to the camp,
    But had their bodies shipped back in the sealed coffins,
    “Died of pneumonia.” “Died trying to escape.”

    For those growers of wheat who were shot by their own wheat-stacks,
    For those growers of bread who were sent to the ice-locked wastes.
    And their flesh remembers the fields.

    For those denounced by their smug, horrible children
    For a peppermint-star and the praise of the Perfect State,
    For all those strangled, gelded or merely starved
    To make perfect states; for the priest hanged in his cassock,
    The Jew with his chest crushed in and his eyes dying,
    The revolutionist lynched by the private guards
    To make perfect states, in the names of the perfect states.

    For those betrayed by the neigbours they shook hands with
    And for the traitors, sitting in the hard chair
    With the loose sweat crawling their hair and their fingers restless
    As they tell the street and the house and the man’s name.
    And for those sitting at the table in the house
    With the lamp lit and the plates and the smell of food,
    Talking so quietly; when they hear the cars
    And the knock at the door, and they look at each other quickly
    And the woman goes to the door with a stiff face,
    Smoothing her dress.
    “We are all good citizens here. We believe in the Perfect State.”

    And that was the last time Tony or Karl or Shorty came to the house
    And the family was liquidated later.
    It was the last time.
    We heard the shots in the night
    But nobody knew next day what the trouble was
    And a man must go to his work.
    So I didn’t see him
    For three days, then, and me near out of my mind
    And all the patrols on the streets with their dirty guns
    And when he came back, he looked drunk, and the blood was on him.

    For the women who mourn their dead in the secret night,
    For the children taught to keep quiet, the old children,
    The children spat-on at school.
    For the wrecked laboratory,
    The gutted house, the dunged picture, the pissed-in well
    The naked corpse of Knowledge flung in the square
    And no man lifting a hand and no man speaking.

    For the cold of the pistol-butt and the bullet’s heat,
    For the ropes that choke, the manacles that bind,
    The huge voice, metal, that lies from a thousand tubes
    And the stuttering machine-gun that answers all.

    For the man crucified on the crossed machine guns
    Without name, without ressurection, without stars,
    His dark head heavy with death and his flesh long sour
    With the smell of his many prisons – John Smith, John Doe,
    John Nobody – oh, crack your mind for his name!
    Faceless as water, naked as the dust,
    Dishonored as the earth the gas-shells poison
    And barbarous with portent.
    This is he.
    This is the man they ate at the green table
    Putting their gloves on ere they touched the meat.
    This is the fruit of war, the fruit of peace,
    The ripeness of invention, the new lamb,
    The answer to the wisdom of the wise.
    And still he hangs, and still he will not die
    And still, on the steel city of our years
    The light falls and the terrible blood streams down.

    We thought we were done with these things but we were wrong.
    We thought, because we had power, we had wisdom.
    We thought the long train would run to the end of Time.
    We thought the light would increase.
    Now the long train stands derailed and the bandits loot it.
    Now the boar and the asp have power in our time.
    Now the night rolls back on the West and the night is solid.
    Our fathers and ourselves sowed dragon’s teeth.

    Our children know and suffer the armed men.

    AAAwww c’mon folks, Communism ONLY killed about 100-150 MILLION during the 20th Century and today’s babbling snotnosed know-it-all “useful idiots” edjumucated in places like Hahvahd, Yehl, and UC Berserkely JUST WANT TO GIVE IT ONE MORE CHANCE!!! I say instead of that they can move to some “Workers’ paradise like Cuba, Venezuela, or North Korea. Yeah, the intended end product of Socialism is communism AND IF SOCIALISM IS SO GREAT then how come the Venezuelan Government can’t even get enough shit paper for their people, let alone enough food? GUESS WHO IS the riches person in Venezuela today? Hugo Chavez’z daughter, that’s who, SOCIALISM IS A SCAM.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Oh, guess what? The Venezuelan army is being asked whether they are going to back the constitution or Maduro. He’s seized and closed more businesses just this past week. Real worker’s paradise there, right? (snrrk!)

        • Lars Flaming Mangina says:

          But… but… it’s social economic redistribution of wealth… it’s a bug, not a feature… if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor… why does it BERN when I pee????

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      This blog post is from Feb. 2016, with links to backups.

      This is more recent and even more interesting. Inflation is forecast to go to 1642%.

      Yeah – it’s wonderful, isn’t it? An incompetent ass running and incompetent government with no idea how to make things work. Food isn’t just controlled, the government seizes what you stock in advance.

      Socialism is SO WUNNAFUL!!!

      I think I’m going to puke. Oh, and I do stock my shelves thoroughly, but I think I may buy tomatoes in bulk and can them. There’s an organic farm up the road that should be selling them this summer. I’ll have to ask them about their free-range laying hens, what they do with them when they’re not producing any more eggs.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        While I’m at it, I skimmed through The Organic Prepper’s blog spot. Good spot to go to. She even has advice on how to do stocking up on a tight budget or in a small space. I think I’ll ream out the pantry shelves next month and add some shelf levels.

        • Jarhead says:

          Ex….looks again like we share another common interest. Here’s a real shocker for you if you’ve never read it. It’s a wake up call from someone who has been there.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          If you’re looking for a company that builds high-efficiency wood-burning stoves for heating/cooking, Woodstock Soapstone Stoves is the place to go to.

          And North Bay Trading offers dry beans, mixes, dried fruits and dried veggies in bulk containers.

          Sometimes, I do think the Amish had the right idea. Don’t get too involved in modern tech.

          Those posts by the Bosnian commenter confirmed for me that living IN a city is the dumbest thing you can do if you expect to survive a disastrous event like civil war. He’s right when he says that money becomes worthless. Use it to stock the shelves ahead of time. Portability is absolutely vital, as is the trade value.

          On the other hand, you do have to pick where you want to live. I knew people in the 1970s who were quite convinced that a nuclear war was going to start at any minute. I’m just glad I moved OUT of Chicago a long time ago.

          I think the Red Cross gives an emergency first aid class that is worth taking.

          My cat’s groomer has a disinfectant (Ro-Kill) that is diluted with water and will kill any surface infectious agents. A gallon jug will last for years because you dilute it so much.

          What I noticed about those photos of Venezuela’s civil unrest is that there is NO BREAD available, probably because the ingredients (yeast and flour) are not available.

          I use dry bouillon like Knorr’s products for cooking because they are cheaper than the canned stuff, a jar lasts a long time, and they take up less space than the canned/boxed stuff. But you should know how to make your own stock and store it, if possible.

          You should ALWAYS have a copy of Stocking Up available, a basic first aid manual, and a copy of Green Kitchen Handbook, plus a book that IDs plants by picture AND use, such as medicinal properties.

          OK, I’m done lecturing.

  6. The Other Whitey says:

    Some might recognize this from an earlier thread, as the challenge went unanswered.

    I challenge the subject of this thread to repeat that shit to my father-in-law. I’ll have the camera rolling as the fucker gets his ass stomped flat by a quiet 61-year-old 5’5″ slim-statured southeast Asian gentleman with diabetes.

    He fought the Cong, NVA, and Khmer Rouge. He got better at fighting after he received training from Americans. He killed communists to defend his hearth, home, and kin. In the end, it wasn’t enough, as the superpower helping him, his countrymen, and their neighbors to the north and east to resist the communists decided to abandon them.

    The communists who took over sent him and his family to a “reeducation facility” (known internationally as the Killing Fields) as “enemies of the people,” not because he had fought against them, but because he’s half-Chinese and could read and write in two languages (Khmer and French). The communists made him watch while they gang-raped his wife. They made him watch when they shot his 4-year-old son in the back of the head. He eventually escaped with the help of a communist who got a little too careless and wound up a little too dead to need his AK anymore, broke his wife out, and made it across the Thai border, where my wife was born. A few months later, they got off a plane in San Diego, and stayed here ever since, becoming naturalized US citizens along the way.

    Come on, asshole. Tell that man that he’s “foolish” to fear communists. You’ll survive, but only because he considers you not worth killing.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      And while he’s at it, TOW, tell Solzhenitsyn that he was foolish, too.

    • Jarhead says:

      T O W….My total in RVN was 32 months. Tanks, USMC. Out in the field probably 80& of the time (first time, that is; 2nd was on a BLT). Of all the chaos, mine was nothing compared to what your father-in-law suffered.

      Nothing would please me more than see Lars run his mouth in front of your father-in-law. Never happen. For all Lars called cowards, HE’S the KING himself.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Geez,Louise! And Venezuela is a fertile country where enough foodstuffs are produced, so that no one should be facing this.

      The appropriate thing to do would be to drown Maduro in a vat of uncooked rice.

  7. Grimmy says:

    Until we start treating all those who align themselves with commiescumism, either hard or softly, in any way, shape or form, as the unambiguous enemy that they most definitely and undeniably are, then we are nothing more than enablers ourselves.

  8. Jarhead says:

    You people are all foolish. Comrade Lars told you so, and he is NEVER wrong…just ask him.

    On a side note, but still related, I’m finally letting off some steam that has been eating at me for a while. The LGBT crowd hijacked an acronym the T A H crowd had been in absolute possession of for years. Would like to take them to court, but all the judges wear the black robes and would likely (In My Humble Opinion) consider themselves wearing dresses and rule against me.

    Dammit, for the last time, it is

    Lars Glam Bolshevik Taylor.

    How many times do I have to sit back and see Comrade Lars insulted by those weird people, even if most of them are special friends and supporters of him?

  9. Roger in Republic says:

    The best meme from the 60’s: Kill a Commie for Christ. True then, truer now.

  10. Ex-PH2 says:

    I have just one little, but pertinent, question: how do you expect to get the poodle to show up when you never call him by name?????

    • ex-OS2 says:

      Rumor has it that Lars is seeking treatment for Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD).

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Don’t you have to have a personality in the first place, in order to have that disorder?

        • ex-OS2 says:

          Although my time here at TAH has been short, my opinion is that Lars has the personality of a “princess”.

          • Jarhead says:

            Good grief ex-OS2….we’re both slipping! You forgot to add cocksucker.
            How we gonna know it’s you otherwise?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      He probably won’t even check in until close to midnight EDT, anyway, so you have to decide if he’s worth it to stay up that late or wait until morning.

      • ex-OS2 says:

        I just started watching Gods of Egypt and will check back later to see if the cocksucker chimed in. I will be enjoying Salted Caramel Popcorn during the movie.

      • Jarhead says:

        Ex….You bring a new dimension to this thread. What if he is a vampire and we had no clue? Is there any place where you can still buy sharpened wooden stakes?

        BTW, DON’T buy one of the alarm clocks with the “Shit Spew” alarm on it. Can’t begin to count the number of times it went off early in the A M to let me know Comrade L. was at it again.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Well, quite frankly, there is such a thing as a psychic (or psychological) vampire – someone whose malignant personality is so demanding of YOUR attention that s/he gets it whether you want to give it or not. They feed off of your anger or other emotions, and even if you break away, they come back for more and more, and it’s all YOUR fault, as usual. They get a boost of something, some psychological energy, out of it.

        I think that describes the poodle to a T, don’t you?

        The ‘point & laugh’ works as well as wooden stakes and garlic, although I do wonder if garlic in the poofy latte would work.

        • Jarhead says:

          Thank you for your diagnosis Dr. Ex. You seem to have nailed it first effort. Realizing the self-boost is part of the gig, Comrade L. is ready for admittance to the ward.
          The point and laugh prescription might not be effective in this case. The patient might be so angered and offended that he might formulate the James Fritch
          interpretation again. Last thing we need is for Comrade Poodle to contemplate acting out once more. Can you quietly refer him to the Grandiose Poodle Clinic?

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          A home for homeless mudworts, perhaps?

  11. Joseph Williams says:

    I dont fear the Commie or any of the others that want to rule my life. I have plenty of ammo .

  12. Jarhead says:

    Getting late here and I’m tired. Where oh where is Comrade Dracula???? Surely someone left the lid loose.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Well, it IS the weekend, Jarhead, and he may have chosen to go to a youth rally or a mosh pit headbanger concert.

      Sometimes, you can through out every lure but the fish are somewhere else in the pond.

  13. The Other Whitey says:

    Remarkable! The Attention Whore has found a forum in which he actually doesn’t like being the center of attention, and thus refuses to slither out of his hole!

    You know he’s read this entire thread, and is pouting like a motherfucker over it.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      No shit! He THINKS he’s SO much smarter than the rest of us, but didn’t bother to make his poodle-dicked ass a part of the discussion. Maybe “poodle dick” is far too bold of a nickname for him and we should heretofore refer to him as “WONDER WUSS”?

      Did he flat-out WUSS or maybe he couldn’t get his ponytailed Perfesser’s approval for his planned talking points?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      However odd this may sound, there are several possibilities:

      1 – he might have found a weekend job some place like a coffee shop

      2 – he could just be rolling over and going back to sleep

      3 – he knows he’s being watched and that someone will sound the alert if he shows up, so he’s pouting in a corner

      • The Other Whitey says:

        Or more likely he finally sweet-talked his hand into not rejecting him again. Remember who we’re talking about, after all.

      • ex-OS2 says:

        4- he is trying on new brony costumes for BronyCon 2016.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        … or he’s just a complete waste of time and finally figured that out himself. Then who does he argue with?

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        5 – He WILL NOT post one of his empty long-winded, say-nothing essays until he gets the approval of one of his tenured freeze-dried-hippie perfessers whose feet he slobbers at.

        6 – He has run through his weekly/monthly allotment of free internet time at his school and/or local public libraries.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          7 – He’s not in school any more and has most likely been kicked off the campus.

          • Jarhead says:

            8. While visiting the Grecian Bath House
            He became enamored with a 15 year old who had a mind of mush but was hung like a donkey. Comrade Poodle Dik took the young man under his wings and is currently molding him for gay pRon. Not to mention that Comrade Poodle Dik is teaching the young man to stand at busy intersections holding signs that say, “People who fear Communism are foolish.”

  14. Ex-PH2 says:

    Considering how much STUFF we surround ourselves with, I wondered if there were any ordinances against hanging clothes to dry outside on a clothesline where I live. It just happens that 19 (count ’em) states have statutes that make BANNING clothesline (solar) laundry drying illegal. Which means that in the summer, if I had room, I could hang the sheets on the clothesline, prop them up with the clothesline pole, and run through them like I did when I was 9.

    Considering how much it will save on the electric bill, I can’t think of any good reason to ban it, except that some people think it makes a home look like – what? hillbillies live there, or something? To me, it just means you’re saving money.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Just look at the percentage of Municipalities that ban them in the Peoples’ Republik of Mexifornia! Forget saving energy, they’re far more concerned about not offending liberal yuppies!

  16. L. Taylor says:

    So much paranoid foolishness.

    We are far far far more likely to have right wing authoritarianism in this country than communism.

    We are on the brink of choosing between a fascist and a kleptocratic oligopolist beholding to the international finance regime.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      Hey, there you are, fuckstick! We knew you’d show your ass sooner or later. You’re nothing if not predictable.

      By the way, you may have noticed the challenge above awaiting your answer.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      WTF about the Narcissistic Emperor-wannabe currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in DC who constantly and unconstitutionally tries to override Law and the Constitution via his manifold Executive Orders, o rat turd pudding-head? Funny how you wait until Sunday evening to spout off thinking you’ll go unnoticed! If Socialism is so great, then why the shortages among other things in Venezuela? Did you know that THE richest person in that country is none other than Chavez’s daughter? L. Taylor, you have little more than composted goose shit for brains and not a lick of common sense. Remember your accusations about MY military career? I said I see them as “Projection” and another poster here lent credence to that. You’re a conceited dysfunctional know-it-all that won’t ever to be able to keep a steady job as anything other than a Government bureaucrat, you’re too incompetent to make it anywhere else. If socialism is so great then move to Cuba, North Korea or Vemezuela, I’ll even pitch in for your one way ticket!

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        You left out the part about inflation predicted to rise to 1642%, API. When basic supplies are short, money becomes worthless. Happened in Germany in the 1930s. Unfortunately, when basic supplies to make something are nowhere to be found (bread: wheat flour, yeast, sugar, salt) it doesn’t matter how much money you have, you can’t buy something that does not exist.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          You’re right I did Ex-PH2, I just wanted to follow the KISS rule when I wrote that. I wonder if whatshisface will slither back to sneer at us yet again? Maybe he shows his posts and our responses to his Perfessers to kiss up to them as well?

      • The Other Whitey says:

        Lars thinks that if he just waits long enough to sneak the last word in, he wins.

    • Jarhead says:

      FINALLY!!!! Now we know the bait he can’t resist. Dangle a quote from A Proud Infidel and Lars just can’t let it pass without taking a big bite. Maybe A P I has figured it out and now wears after-shave with a confrontational smell to it !!!

      No matter how much logic, how many revealing stories about current North Korea and its abuse of its own people, on and on….Comrade Poodle Dik is stuck on his own failed perception. Not much reason to think we can consider reaching or helping him, as it is impossible to help an idealist who feeds on claiming HE is the Chosen One with All the answers. Alcoholics always refuse to admit their problem, that being alcohol to begin with…..Comrade Poodle Dik will always deny his position of highly self-rated discourse being one based primarily on mass confusion. His Motto: “Dazzle them with bullshit, confuse them with questionable facts,
      and give the non-believers a smoke enema when possible.”

      IMHO, there is only ONE solution for Comrade Poodle Dik…put him and The Other Whitey’s father-in-law in a MMA cage with no doors. ONLY the winner crawls out. Now THAT would be worth a high premium.

      Once again, this is the same idiot who told us on this very site, “People who are afraid of Communism are foolish”. Another f–ckin’ Commie-lover who blamed us for the RVN war. Another low-life shithead who watched the last American plane leaving RVN with as many possible fleeing their home country. Probably watched it sitting on the Lazy Boy smiling while he finished another bottle of scotch…all the while trying to spank his monkey.

      One day Comrade Poodle Dik will leave us when a bunch of impressionable school age kiddies appear to be buying his rhetoric and bullshit.

        Hey Jarhead, I was a yard ape when that that happened and Lars is younger than me. IMHO it’s likely he was sucking on a bottle and shittimg in diapers when that went down and that’s IF he’s even that old!

        • Jarhead says:

          A P I…for some reason I thought Comrade
          Poodle Dik had a little age on him, and that he had mistakenly written as if to suggest he had some personal involvement in the RVN war.. With the old adage in mind (“with age comes wisdom”), looking back at his postings, I am truly of the opinion he is no older than perhaps 18 or 20 at the very most.

          • The Other Whitey says:

            Lars claims he was an ossifer in the Army. But then again, Lars is full of shit, so take that claim for what it’s worth.

          • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

            Naw, according to a couple of reliable sources, Wonder-Wuss McGoose Turd WAS an Ossifer and IMHO not much of one if he acted then like he does now. I always *COUGH* heard rumors that Officers and NCOs who were that holier-than-thou smarter and conceited ended up having their coffee cups and mugs “teabagged” or worse when no one was looking.

          • Hondo says:

            Jarhead: you might be thinking of a former commenter here who went by the screen name “vietnam war protestor”. He was of that age, was IMO a blithering leftist idiot (sound familiar?), and if I recall correctly implied or stated outright that he’d been a draft evader.

    • Hondo says:

      Talk to those in the gulag’s graveyards about “paranoid foolishness”, Taylor. Or go to Kaytn and tell those buried there the same.

      Go to the Ukraine, and tell that to those millions deliberately starved to death by Soviet policy during the Holomodor. Or to the souls of the tens of millions starved to death by famine deliberately created as a matter of policy under Mao.

      Go tell the same to those buried in the graveyards of China’s prisons. Or to those who died in North Korea’s labor camps – if you can find wherever it is they bury them.

      Go educate those resting in graves near Vietnam’s “reeducation camps”. Or those dead buried near to the prisons of the Khmer Rouge. Tell them that there’s nothing to fear from Communism.

      Or go to the final resting places of those shot trying to escape East Germany during the Berlin Wall era. Tell them they have nothing to worry about.

      Might want to pack a lunch, though. It will take a while to convince 140+ million lost souls that no one should fear those who deliberately murdered them.

      Any form of authoritarian dictatorship is to be feared. But historically, those authoritarian dictatorships imposed by Communists have been the worst of the worst. And Communists have historically imposed such nasty regimes whenever they took power.

      You really are an intellectual “piece of work”, Taylor. And I don’t mean that as a compliment.

    “We are far far far more likely to have right wing authoritarianism in this country than communism.”

    As compared to Obama’s authoritarian personality?

    • The Other Whitey says:

      It is so because Lars says so.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Yeah, “right wing authoritarianism”, WTF about the manifold increases in Federal Government Regs in the past few years along with the IRS assaults on Right Wing Organizations such as Tea Party groups, Lars the wet noodle dick?

  18. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    TO THOSE who say Lars has nothing, I respectfully disagree. One, he has his Inferiority Complex as well as his undying dedication to proselytizing rampant airheaded stupidity.

  19. Ex-PH2 says:

    Guys, guys, guys – listen up!!! I have a much better and far more practical idea.

    Give the Poodleboy a one-way ride, with armed escort, to present-day Venezuela and drop him off in one of the major cities. We’ll see just how long he lasts that way. An angry crowd is an ugly thing.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Here’s something to consider: Venezuela’s wheat production up to 1988 was about 1,000 MT (million tonnes) per year, with 1966 showing 2,000MT. In 1988, wheat production ceased altogether. Green coffee production averaged around 950,000 to 1,000,000 60KG bags per year until Chavez took over. Then it dropped severely to around 500K 60KG bags. Same thing with rice, but for some reason, not only has crop production dropped under Chavez and Maduro, these products are not getting to the general populace because they are rationed and restricted.

      To quote another author: ‘Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world. It should be rich. But it isn’t, and it’s getting even poorer now, because of economic mismanagement on a world-historical scale. The problem is simple: Venezuela’s government thinks it can have an economy by just pretending it does.’

      Neither Chavez nor Maduro thought that the price of crude oil would drop from $140/bbl (high) to $25/bbl(low) and depended far too heavily on oil production and sales to support a laughably incompetent government. They depended entirely on oil sales for everything and look where it got them.

      As Mikhail Gorbachev essentially said in his farewell speech, mismanaging resources is not the way to run a government.

      This, of course, does not occur to a nominally-aware stool pigeon like the poodle because until he started getting a government check in the Army (what HE told us), he was a bum.

      Meanwhile, the rest of us were working for a living and are now enjoying the fruits of our labors.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        So now just WHERE IS Lars with another one of his sneering snotnosed lectures about just what uninformed brainless minions we are for not kowtowing to his imaginary brilliance?

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        API, look at the bright side. He’s a moving target that stumbles over his own ignorance.

        Rouseff in Brazil has been deposed. I do not expect to see Maduro, who is an incompetent ass, in charge too much longer. According to one news source, in Venezuela, Caracas is as bad as any Bosnian town during that civil war.
