I swear to Christ. Stalin could’ve gutted a child in front of the whole presidium and tankies would still defend him


TheMossbergMan

One of my friends was told in a discord server by tankie that he deserves to get murdered because he’s Ukrainian, these guys sound exactly like neo-Nazis.


LastMan0ut

”guys were not like nazis at all! All I’m saying is that the Jewish vermin need to be removed from the face of the earth. Workers of the world unite”


LimeAndJuice

Unite in some sort of... National.... Socialist Party of the Workers?


BlazeSmarts

National. Hmmmmm no international. The Global Defense Empire!


LokisDawn

Internationalsozialistische Nichtdeutsche Arbeiterpartei - INSNAP. Just rolls off the tongue, like a rock. Also could be what we call Thanos' actions. Insane Snap - INSNAP.


TheFelineWarrior

Saying that someone deserves to get murdered because they belong to a certain ethnic group…yeah that sounds about as Nazi as it gets.


TheMossbergMan

And it proves that horseshoe theory is real.


TheFelineWarrior

Indeed.


TheMossbergMan

I've seen neo-Nazi show support for the CCP killing Uighurs.


TheFelineWarrior

Oh I’ve seen that too. Stormfront was strongly against the 2019 Hong Kong protests as well (the idea of liberal democracy is, in their words, “Jewish nonsense”).


TheMossbergMan

Idi Amin wanted to build a statue of Adolf Hitler in Uganda in the 1970s.


TheFelineWarrior

Ewwwwwwww.


TheMossbergMan

Spanish dictator Francisco Franco refused to recognize Israel when they declared independence in 1948 and became friends with Egyptian dictator Gamal Abdel Nasser during the Six-Day War in 1967.

Tankies: China isnt fascist shut up lib!!!!!! China is a perfect example of of cummunism!!!!! Nazis: China is fascist and that is based


Bombonel69

Always has been.


steph-anglican

Or it shows that international socialism and national socialism are not that far apart on left right spectrum. I for example consider consider social democrats to be to the right of fascists. With Liberals of various stripes to the right of them.


alexbigshid

I'm of Ukranian descent and I can't say I haven't heard that before


TheMossbergMan

My dad hates me because I’m part Slav, Polish and Ukrainian.


steph-anglican

Why did he have sex with your mother then? Sorry that is a personal question and you don't have to answer it, but really people can be nuts.


WallachianLand

No. They're communists. Even worse. Call them communists to normalize the use of it to refer as genociders


No-Marionberry-166

That isn’t communism.


WallachianLand

The practical results of communism shows that it leads to this. I'm sorry if you don't like the results, but it is what it is, besides, I live in a socialist country, a paradise for people like you, but it's a hell for us who still lives here.


Lebossatron01

Is that not what China currently is?


TheMossbergMan

The PRC has been like Nazi Germany since 1949.


KasumiR

If by 'gutted a child' you mean 'made baby in her gut'... https://medium.com/short-history/young-stalin-affair-f80e8d508012


toxicbroforce

They would say it’s CIA propaganda


draka28

Are you really surprised? Psychological authoritarian personality types can rationalize a defense of almost anything if dressed up in the right self justifying facade. For them the question they always ask when someone representative of their ideologies commits an atrocity is not “who did it and who and how many people were harmed by their actions?” But rather instead the question they first ask is “well what did the people they did it to do to deserve it?” or “what was the outcome they were hoping to achieve?” Basically demonstrating that they don’t actually care that an atrocity has been committed and people have been harmed but rather what the atrocities were committed “for” and why they victims were “chosen.”


somecheesecake

Well that didn’t happen and even if it did the baby deserved it


PaladinOfPelor

He got up in a child's guts and they defend him


TPGopher

Are we sure he didn't?


iwanttobeaneskimo

*that child is a capitalist, he/she deserved it*


beepboopbapbox

These people would shit themselves if they saw the Death of Stalin by Armando Iannuci


onetheblueqres

The child was probably asking for it.


steph-anglican

He basically did. The Central Committee told him that the collection of agriculture would be a total disaster and he did it any way.


followthewhiterabb77

I don’t see how he needed to do anything else. Stalin was an absolute monster and we have records upon records of this shit. The evidence is more than enough for 10 dictators, let alone a single one. Hitler in comparison we have much less evidence of him being a brutal man, apart from his political decisions


Available_Chonkus

"what do you mean it wasn't utopia?"


TheMossbergMan

“No guys, it was a great uptopia, they’re just lying because they get support from the west and CIA!” -some r/GenZedong user as he cries himself to sleep.


ForgottenCrafts

"Capitalism killed more people than communism, the famines are hoaxes made up by western medias" -The same r/GenZedong user as he wet his bed


dariusvarno

Yea lithuania "willingly"(through fake voting and force) was taken to ussr, then about 200 000 of intelectuals and people who weren't fond of ussr ideology were sent to a beautiful trip trough all of russia right to sibearia to see it's magestic greatness (without food or water in animal train carts) :)


Tango-454

"Trotsky killed himself!"


Not_RichardNixon

I don’t get why people believe in western cia propaganda so much. Trotsky killed him self by stabbing himself in the back of the head and with a ice axe. A classic suicide.


Kromovaracun

Tbf I would be very intrigued to watch a film in which Trotsky's death is presented as an hilariously elaborate Clouseau-esque accident.


Tango-454

And after they'd made a sequel with Epstein- nevermind they killed themselves


steph-anglican

Yep 20 stab wounds to the back the worst case of suicided we ever saw. :-)


seffay-feff-seffahi

Tankies hate Trotsky (not for legitimate reasons, but because Daddy Stalin said to), so I doubt they would deny his assassination.


[deleted]

You think they like trotsky


avggamer241

Colonel Sanders killed himself


draka28

Ohh no 😲 OBJECTIVELY WELL DOCUMENTED FACTS!!! 😱


kiddpancham

# our only weekness # QUICK SAY THATS RECIST


daspaceasians

Being Vietnamese meant that whenever I said Communism is evil because of all the shit the Communists did to my family, I usually get told that I'm brainwashed. Rather quite annoying seeing as I'm a Historian of the Vietnam War.


[deleted]

I love how they don't even try to hid the fact that they're all actual children.


TheMossbergMan

I bet this guy blasted the USSR national anthem in public and wonders why nobody is laughing.


Linepool

I know right, this kid prob goes to 8th grade.


ChocoOranges

Literally children lol


PVChapaev

I got upset because I found it overly simplistic, then I remembered it's half a page in like a grade 8-10 school book and I've spent way too much time reading about the development of Stalinist USSR, then yea its a pretty good summary.


seffay-feff-seffahi

Stalinism really did a number on the USSR's psyche. I've been reading more about the later Soviet Union, Lenin's Tomb by David Remnick at the moment, and 80% of the material is *still* about dealing with the aftermath of Stalinism.


Shoopshopship

What exactly do they disagree with? I thought they were proud of these things


TheMossbergMan

They didn’t like it when anyone calls out the human rights abuses committed by Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong.


Velociraptor_pope

The control of arts scares me the most. You don’t see good music coming out of The USSR during the 60s. All the good music was coming from The US, Britain and France.


buttsalamander

Looks like a middle school textbook. No surprise there, hopefully the kid grows out of his tankie phase soon.


PaladinOfPelor

This came from an 8th grade textbook guaranteed


gadzikk

Are tankie subs full of 13 year olds?


luigimini

Told you theyre all 13.


UnbuiltAura9862

The denial is just straight-up both funny and painful at the same time. XD


TheMossbergMan

Commies have the most thinnest skin.


Trenix

Educational flair, 😂.


Kromovaracun

In fairness, the Stalin Constitution was introduced in 1936, not 1937.


MrMescaline

I though Maosits hated Stalin and the USSR


Kromovaracun

Mao was pretty annoyed by de-Stalinisation when it happened and continued to use images of Stalin on party propaganda well into the 1960s. The PRC split with the Soviet Union precisely because it was disestablishing parts of Stalin's legacy under Khrushchev.


ChocoOranges

They are dengists. There is a separate Maoist sub and they hate that sub. Ya I know, internet commie politics is pretty convoluted lmao


Shullers1

communists when they finally reach freshman year


plscome2brazil

The only tankies I respect are those who admit that it happened and support it in the form that it actually came in. Not "muuh utopia", "muh cia lies", "muuh not real cumminzim". Just like the nazis who admit that the Holocaust was real and it wasn't enough. Both are pretty rare breeds. Everyone else besides them are pretty much children who can't accept reality. They don't understand that the communist ideology has brought a massive amount of human suffering, second to European colonialism.


Dr_Sir1969

Imagine being upset over the truth


sizz

Communism is a religion, lysenkoism is synonymous with young earth creationism. Communist utopia is synonymous with islamic caliphate. Calling you a fascist/ imperialist is synonymous calling kaffir/heretic. CIA is Satan himself. When a religious zealot confronted with conflicting facts, you brain natural state is to reject the facts. You see all the time even on Reddit, tankies label contradicting information as " western propaganda", CIA disinformation, imperialism, etc and dismiss it. They are victims of congitive dissonance. Pattern searching within information is a sign for conspiracy theorists or schizophrenia, they try so hard to find tidbits information to dismiss or strawman sources. Learning about psychology and metacognition you can see tankies fall in this trap all the time.


strongbud82

And how is it ppl can't see the parallels in todays politics blows my mind.


Fappyboiiiii

Had the same textbook I think.


SoryE11

"the truth" this book itself shows how much propaganda is in western history books


aMarinaSimp

I dislike Stalin, but British text books are comparing the USSR (that defeated nazism) with the Nazis. It’s just stupid man, they’re making the comparison to make brits hate Russians. So I agree with this reaction


stoned_jack_baller

Wow sounds oddly familiar to western govts of today


2024AM

exactly what parts?


stoned_jack_baller

State controlled schools and science, propaganda, censorship are the most obvious


KnockKnockKGB

WHATABOUT WHATABOUT—


TheMossbergMan

I thought you were libertarian?


stoned_jack_baller

Yeah, state run schools and science, secret police, propaganda and censorship, cult of a leader. I don’t get why I’m getting downvoted. Do you guys not pay attention to what’s going on recently? I mean aside from the clear dictatorship and terror aspect I see some similarities.


TheMossbergMan

Because your comment sounds like you’re defending Stalin.


stoned_jack_baller

Definitely not, I was observing how far western govts have drifted in that direction


WalbrechtBayern

How?


KaChoo49

🤨


IoweIl

This sounds like the kind of book that was the start and end of everyone’s education on communism here.
