I was born in the middle of WWII and over my lifetime, I have heard a great deal about Adolph Hitler. However, I never recall ever hearing anything about the evils of Joseph Stalin–you know? The guy whose ass we saved?
I had to learn for myself, Hitler is said to have murdered some 6 million. Well, Stalin murdered 60 million. So, on a scale of evil from 1 to 10, who is a 1 and who is a 10? And remember, this is the guy that the FDR referred to as “Uncle Joe.” My ass. — jtl, 419

“The Grotesquely Stalinist FDR” is the current column. It questions the current libertarian support (my own included) for Russia, and recounts how ‘grotesquely Stalinist’ Franklin Delano Roosevelt was. An excerpt:
… One can well understand why the medieval blood ties that tethered some Ukrainians to the Russians would have been severed by the criminal communist regime, which targeted the Ukrainian breadbasket with a vengeance. The communists robbed the Ukrainian peasants of their fertile farms, forced them into slave labor by corralling them into state-owned, collective farms, and systematically starved them by requisitioning most of their grain. The peasants had been left with a fraction of the amount of grain required to sustain life. Yet these heroic, individualistic farmers rose up against the Reds.
The slogans of the Ukrainian peasantry, in 1919, were “Ukraine for the Ukrainians, down with the Bolsheviks and the Jews (whom they associated with the Bolsheviks), free enterprise, free trade.” Besides the standard mass executions, in order to wipe out this class of people, Stalin devised a diabolical man-made famine which killed up to 10 million.
Fast forward to Kiev, circa 2013, where Ukrainians tore down the statue of the founding father of Bolshevism and a mass murderer in his own right. But that man, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, still reposes in a mausoleum in Moscow’s Red Square.
Why, pray tell?
… Read the rest. “The Grotesquely Stalinist FDR” is now on WND.
