Except that it was the Communist Russian Government that ruthlessly killed the Tsarists.

But why let facts get in the way of good propaganda.
No they did. The backlash was just stronger because the commies had better optics. The commies killed a whole lot more people then the tsarists, but they needed that backlash for optics.

Im a anti-commie myself raised by family members that ran to the states from the regieme. I have utterly no sympathy for any commie that doesn't live by their principles (which is 99.9999% of them), and I think communism is a generally shit idea and does not possess inherent empathy.

The Tsarists did target them as threats to their regieme. Lenin and others where exiled to Siberia for this reason.

Edit: Communists fear truth more than they fear violence or repression. Truth is humiliation, while repression or violence served to validate their desire for importance.

Yeah. Extremists *want* repression and violence, because it not only validates their importance but it justifies their own violence.

My church had a Cuban-American guest minister this past Sunday, and I think her introduction was a far more effective anti-communist message than any of this "kill-the-commies" crap, in my opinion.

Yup. The commies power has always been OPTICS. It sounds nice from a distance (and without examination). We have also been using their dialectics for the past 100 years so they define the conversation on a basic language level.

Its like if during WWII the Allies purchased all their engines from Nazi Germany Factories (and I don't mean defectors). No matter how good your troops are, and no matter how good the rest of your everything is, you shoot yourself in the foot before you even enter the vehicle.

There is a strategy thats worth engaging the same way that the commies use and thats with dialectics and wording. And undoing their historical revisionism.

Those are tactics worth adapting. Commies call themselves progressive, socialists, and call their opponents capitalists. Language designed to make their opponents begin on the backfoot.

Call it 'Collectivism, Regimentation, and call yourself Autonomists' and your on your way of removing the sabotaged engines from your trucks.

Yes, and not only that. It is fundamentally counter to human nature. Because the system is deeply flawed, most people just try to get by through gaming the system. I know of very few things that can kill the human spirit of innovation and enterprise the way communism can. Maybe certain kinds of religious fundamentalism come pretty close, but it is quite remarkable, comparing iron curtain countries to others in Europe for instance (I have had friends on both sides in Germany, the Balkans etc.)

Greetings!

Yes, I love how our society has talked, preached, and sought to always be reasonable, tolerant, and kind to Marxists. That approach has kept our society from being entirely infiltrated, overthrown, and ass-fucked by the Marxists. Thankfully, our society hasn't been deeply brainwashed by Marxists, and their jello-gargling, sweet accomplices.

The idea of violently resisting Marxism is just so barbaric!

Everything will be fine. We can cleanse our society of the infiltration and corruption of the filthy, rat-like Marxists by being gentle, reasonable, and loving towards them. "Love is All!", right? ;D

Semper Fidelis,

And at last, each will own the privilege of looking inside himself  to discover what truly resides there. Comfort is an illusion. A false security bred from familiar things and familiar ways. It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

This is the enemy that we face. This is what they want for everyone that opposes them.

SHARK - you use even more extreme hyperbole in your own speech. As you said just a few weeks ago:

Yeah, whiny bitch cock-sucking traitor. KILL THEM ALL. Every fucking Communist hunted down and killed like the fucking evil rats that they are. Communists are not just like preferring a different flavour of ice cream than you or I might prefer--no, they are evil fucking tyrants that want to kill you and enslave you to their godless and terrible fucking ideology.

Fuck the Communists. You damn right they need to be killed. Every fucking one of them needs to bathe in Napalm, baby! ALL OF THEM!

I'm confused here: is SHARK anti-Communist?

Anyway, to bring this back on topic, the problem is not with CRT itself. The problem is that when and how to talk about some topics with an underage son or a daughter is the job of their parents, not of a third party.

I went to a Catholic school (I wasn't ever molested, we had mixed classes, we were taught Evolutionary Theory and I didn't become a Catholic, thank you). When we turned 18 (in Italy this usually happens in the fourth year of high-school out of five) the nuns decided to invite some experts and have a course about "Sexual Education". And even if we weren't underage anymore they first had a meeting with our parents to ask for their approval (AFAIK, the parents agreed. I don't remember talks of resistance. BTW, the course was not mandatory: if someone's parents disagreed they could simply withdraw their sons/daughters).

So we had this course. I learned many interesting things that I already knew and some that I didn't. Yes, they also talked about homosexuality and transgenderism in a frank, non-condemning, way. It was obvious that these two expert knew their job.

And the nuns of a Catholic school who ran the show didn't obfuscate anything - except for a final sermon about "You know what Jesus wants from you." Which was actually refreshing: if you mess up, when you die God will have an interesting chat with you, but it is not the job of your fellows to judge you. Amazing, uh?

So, topics ranging from homosexuality to CRT can be properly tackled - even by a Catholic school in the 1980s. But some people act like if the World started existing only from the moment they were born, and like if their thinking marks the very first time that someone tackled the matter ever. Chaos ensues.

The problem with communism was never that it "didn't work."

The problem with communism, as well as Critical Race Theory, Critical Theory, the "soft on crime because criminals are victims" approach, radical feminism, sexology (e.g. Kinsey), transexualism, etc. etc. is that it all always has and is working exactly the way it was all meant to work all along.

There's one situation in which communism does work, but when I invoke it the tankies get really pissed off. :D

Monasteries and convents are generally communist in practice. However, since they are groups bound together by a single higher ideal (glorification of God, natch), the communitards don't like it.
