Kukryniksy. Tanya. Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya's Feat. 1942


74 years ago, in the waning days of November, the Western world wrote off the USSR. The Wehrmacht was in Moscow Oblast, in the Podmoskovie (Moscow suburbs)… all the pundits said that it was only a matter of time before the Germans held their victory parade on Red Square. Why didn’t it happen? Well… for one thing, the heroism of countless millions of courageous people like Z A Kosmodemyanskaya. She died, but she didn’t submit to the rightwing fascist scum.

Look at those who call themselves “conservatives”… their economic and social programmes are almost identical to those of the Nazis… that’s why they excused the Nazi excesses. The Nazis “made the trains run on time”, crushed the unions, and wanted to keep “subhumans” (Slavs, Greeks, and Jews) in subjection. American Republicans applauded that until Pearl Harbor… after all, they wanted to do the same themselves… crush the unions, keep “subhumans” in their place (Mexicans, blacks, Muslims), and to destroy every vestige of the New Deal (including Social Security).

You may support the fascist mindset of the Nazis and Republicans… or you can take on the courage of Zoya and fight them. I’ve chosen the latter… I’m not alone…
