A Red Scare

Sphere: Related Content

The movie Reds starring Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton is to be released soon on DVD. The trailer is a bit odd and can be seen here. What the Russian revolution has to do with today's conservatives or even today's politics is beyond me, but it should get libs all worked up enough to buy it. The movie is pure communist pornography.

On a related note, Vladimir Putin has regressed to the Soviet mindset and his government seems on a mission to exterminate any journalists who criticize them. Just like the Soviet Union hat started with the Russian revolution that Beatty romanticized.

Update: Amazingly, the former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev said this today:

BERLIN (Reuters) - Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, who played a key role in ending the Cold War, said the United States had squandered an opportunity to improve global politics after the Cold War, a paper said on Friday.

In comments that were among the harshest he has made about the United States, Gorbachev compared U.S. foreign policy to one of the deadliest diseases on the planet -- AIDS.

"Today our American friends are suffering from an illness worse than AIDS. And I would say this is the victor's complex," Gorbachev was quoted as saying in an interview with the Netzzeitung.

Here's a man whose country is being led by organized crime in cahoots with leadership and the press has been taken over by the government. He--in the true spirit of TASS and Pravda--neglects these facts and slams America, or more specifically Bush.

Take care of your own thugocracy where critics are being assassinated and stay the hell out of our affairs.

Gorby continues:

Unable to extricate itself from its Cold War mentality, the United States was playing a dwindling role in world politics, while Russia, China, Brazil, Europe, India and Japan were becoming stronger, Gorbachev said.

North Korea, which said on Monday it had successfully completed a nuclear test, was an example. Only China and Russia were in a position to handle Pyongyang, he said.

Yeah, if the definition of "handle" is selling them weapons and info to build their nukes.

As for Russia and the other nations surpassing America in world politics, I surely hope that is not the case and from all accounts it is not. While China is indeed a regional player, they are not an international player. The same can be said for Brazil, India and Japan.
