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.

Brother Ajamu on the Great October

________________________

The capitalist oligarchy that runs this state would rather that the people in this country not know that this is the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. The idea that ordinary workers could take power and run a state is an idea too powerful for the masses to know about.

7 November 2017. From the KPRF Website: The Light of October Guides Us to the Future!

________________________

I saw something like this on the KPRF website’s homepage. I looked up the original image, edited it to be somewhat like the image on the website, and “Englished” the text. I may not have much free time, but I’m not forgetting the Great October. I AM translating Comrade Zyuganov’s message, I’ll have it up this evening or tomorrow.

The Light of October WILL guide us to the future!

7 November 2017. The Spirit of the Great October Still Lives… “Invincible and Legendary” in 1943 and in 2017

The October Spirit still lives on in the Donbass Peoples Republics… that’s why the oligarch-misruled USA hates them and tries to destroy them. Christianity and Socialism march together… a match made in heaven. In the USA (and in its Uniate junta in the Ukraine) false “religion” and crapitalism march together…  a match made in hell. You can choose the Reds or you can choose the crapitalists… choose wisely.

The October Spirit lives on… especially, in the Army, which still considers itself the Red Army (it refuses to give up the Red Star and the Victory Banner). If you ask most real Russian people, they’d tell you that they respect I V Stalin. No… none of them (except for a few goofy nutters) believe him a saint. However, most Russians will tell you that Stalin was a great leader and that he was the man for that hour. No… people do know what he did. Yes… people do compare his accomplishments to his barbarities and conclude that he was, on balance, a great leader. No… not a good man… not a saint… perhaps, not an exemplar… but a strong man who got the country through one of the most-trying crises in Russian history. Remember this… Stalin passed that test… Tsar St Nikolai didn’t. Most Russians want Volgograd to revert to “Stalingrad”… as one told me:

We won the war at Stalingrad, not Volgograd. It’s time to undo that drunken Ukrainian’s [Khrushchyov’s] vandalism and historical revisionism.

Russia embraces ALL of its history… which includes the Great October. That’s healthy. The USA refuses to acknowledge its history. That isn’t healthy. I know which one I’d consider the more worthy… I confide that I’m not alone in thinking that…
