A little Murzilka NEVER hurt anyone… aren’t you sorry to have listened to the lying Red haters? “Call me a commie, I won’t fear… you done praised me, thank you, dear!”

Ninety years… and still going strong. There be some VITALITY in them REDS. Turn LEFT… it’s where all the decent and caring people are…


Most Soviet children remember well the yellow fluffy protagonist of the popular children’s magazine Murzilka. The first issue came out exactly 90 years ago. Murzilka is a popular children’s literary magazine. Published since May 1924 for children aged 6-12, over its 89 years in print, this beloved children’s magazine never missed a release, not even during the war. From May 1924 to May 2011, more than 1,020 issues of the magazine appeared.  In 2011, Murzilka entered the Guinness Book of Records as the “longest-running children’s magazine”. Its mascot is the yellow fluffy fairy-tale creature Murzilka, which in turn got its name from an undersized forest prankster and troublemaker that existed in popular children’s books in the late 19th century… a little man in a frock coat, with a cane and monocle. One may compare it to the famous Yellow Kid Mickey Dugan, the lead comic strip character that ran from 1895 to 1898 in Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World, and later William Randolph Hearst’s New York Journal.


The Amerikantsy Free Market banksters want Russia to scuttle the legacy of the USSR wholesale… they can kiss my ass! They want everyone to abandon their time-honoured ways and imitate them down to the smallest detail, including destroying all traditional norms. The Amerikantsy have to understand that not everyone is like them and not everyone wants to be like them. Much, if not most, of the USSR’s legacy was good… much of it was innocent and pure and yearned for a fair order of things… it was better, in fact, than the selfish rightwing “Rugged Individualist” Free Market rot spouted by the US Republican Party. Let’s put it plainly… you can have the healthy communitarianism spread by Murzilka or you can have the evil grasping insatiable Me First greed of the planned “communities” of American suburbia. You have a choice… choose well.

I choose selfless communitarianism… that was Our Lord Christ’s Choice, after all (he chose to be incarnate in a workman’s home… not in a rich man’s mansion)… I agree with G A Zyuganov, Christ WAS the First Communist!
