Many of Those Condemned in the Trials of the 1930s WERE Guilty


Some of the “best people”, that is, our intelligentsia, turned on the FSB’s director because he pointed up that some of the people convicted in the trials of the 1930s were actually guilty, as they wish to do nothing more than condemn what they call the “crimes” of the Bolshevik authorities. What he said was:

Although many say that this period saw a massive fabrication of charges, the archival material shows objective evidence in a large proportion of criminal cases, including famous “show” trials. That the group around Trotsky wanted to overthrow or even eliminate I V Stalin and his colleagues in the VKP (b) leadership wasn’t fiction, as were the ties of these conspirators with foreign intelligence services. In addition, many of the defendants in those trials were members of the nomenklatura and officers of the security organs long involved in corruption, arbitrariness, and official injustice.


Are you telling me that all the repressed Old Bolsheviks were innocent? On the other hand, is it just because a part of the intelligentsia sees these people as their historical predecessors, and is afraid of a similar verdict by the court of history and in the verdict of the people? In fact, the only true innocents were those few people who didn’t betray the tsar and their faith, who suffered for their allegiance to them. Many of the New Martyrs were amongst them. However, the collective sins of many Russian classes are obvious to me… as is the justice of the punishment that struck them. By the way, only Protestant rationalists, contrary to Scripture and Tradition, believe that sins can only be personal.

Was the peasantry, who seized land from the manors, perfectly innocent? Who was innocent amongst the clergy, who only protested when it affected their corporate interests… or, the aristocracy, many of whom donned red cockades… or, the Duma Deputies, industrialists, and party leaders who plotted against the tsar in wartime… or, the Red commanders who shot down their own people? The Lord God isn’t mocked. True is His justice. He metes out according to our just desserts. This isn’t just about the past.

Hillary Clinton isn’t only unprincipled, corrupt, and amoral… she demands hero-worship at all times. Her nose gets out of joint if one doesn’t kiss her ass incessantly and vociferously. Vladimir Vladimirovich refuses to kiss her ass…  he also doesn’t demonise her, but he won’t kiss her ass. Hillary hates all those who won’t be her sycophants… therefore, in her eyes (and in the eyes of her besotted followers), Putin is “evil” and she must destroy him. However, that’s beyond her power, so she throws juvenile tantrums and bootless hissy fits, repeated verbatim by her more-than-Stalinist claque. Be charitable to anyone in your circle of friends who happens to run amongst the Hillarybots… they’re a rather totalitarian lot, so some will say some rather nasty and untoward things in public… forgive them, for they’ll do anything demanded of them by their group (why, I don’t know… I’m simply observing what’s there). I’m thinking of one person in particular… I prefer to recall the person who showed kindness in the past… not the lockstep partisan that I see today. You’d do well to do likewise. We’re Christians… that’s what we do…
