From a reader.

By the way, the illustrated tactic is one of the demonstratedly-effective cures for Bolshevism.

    That technique would cure communism too.
    Heh !

  2. Great art work (oh, wait – probably happened millions of times over): maybe should be a required computer screen back drop just as a reminder for all the good (socialist) folks out there ….. like all bad things, it’s always best when it happens to someone else.

  3. Tinnitus: Brought to you by the People’s Socialist Utopia!

    • Military service frequently leaves a person with the “perpetual sound of freedom” echoing in ears. WHAT?

      A bullet to the back of the head cures pretty much everything – except, of course, bullet to the back of the head.

  5. Speaking of Bolsheviks lol this one’s too good to not pass on. It seems Burlington College (VT), a private college is closing it’s doors after taking on to much debt. The president of the college who took on the debt was none other than Bernie’s wife. Burlington’s motto is “Start a Fire” and indeed it appears they have done just that. Ms. Sanders’ efforts to borrow 2 million dollars succeeded after some creative accounting and then she resigned receiving a $200k parachute. The debt load then ignited an interest rate and payment fire which the university, despite it’s best efforts was unable to extinguish. In short, socialism was great until they ran out of other peoples money?

    It’s unlikely that wealthy alumni donors will come to the rescue.

    Perhaps the students will chip in some dollars to save the “vaunted institution of ‘high’ learning?

      Tom: Irony of ironies. I had to laugh when I saw the motto: START A FIRE. They could do a bust-out. Burn the place down and collect on the insurance. Arson is not called “Jewish Lightning” for nothing.

    Allow me this comment, please. The National Socialist regime 1933-45 had these people for neighbors. The NS regime came along because the Bolsheviks were killing millions and abolishing private property. The Bolsheviks were infiltrating Germany. So I ask you, why was the NS regime the enemy, and the Bolshevik regime our “ally”?

    And, what would you do if Stalin was your neighbor?

  7. @William Wilson:

    WWII has a nickname, The War To Save Uncle Joe (Stalin). AKA The War To Save Communism.

    Poland and Eastern Europe did not see what was coming. I bet, if you were to give them choice, most would have preferred the Nazis to the Commies.

    Instead we gave them all over to the Commies.

    General Patton’s views in next post:

  8. His duties as military governor took Patton to all parts of Germany and intimately acquainted him with the German people and their condition. He could not help but compare them with the French, the Italians, the Belgians, and even the British. This comparison gradually forced him to the conclusion that World War II had been fought against the wrong people.

    After a visit to ruined Berlin, he wrote his wife on July 21, 1945: “Berlin gave me the blues. We have destroyed what could have been a good race, and we are about to replace them with Mongolian savages. And all Europe will be communist. It’s said that for the first week after they took it (Berlin), all women who ran were shot and those who did not were raped. I could have taken it (instead of the Soviets) had I been allowed.”

    This conviction, that the politicians had used him and the U.S. Army for a criminal purpose, grew in the following weeks. During a dinner with French General Alphonse Juin in August, Patton was surprised to find the Frenchman in agreement with him. His diary entry for August 18 quotes Gen. Juin: “It is indeed unfortunate, mon General, that the English and the Americans have destroyed in Europe the only sound country – and I do not mean France. Therefore, the road is now open for the advent of Russian communism.”

    Later diary entries and letters to his wife reiterate this same conclusion. On August 31 he wrote: “Actually, the Germans are the only decent people left in Europe. it’s a choice between them and the Russians. I prefer the Germans.” And on September 2: “What we are doing is to destroy the only semi-modern state in Europe, so that Russia can swallow the whole.”

    By this time the Morgenthauists and media monopolists had decided that Patton was incorrigible and must be discredited. So they began a non-stop hounding of him in the press, a la Watergate, accusing him of being “soft on Nazis” and continually recalling an incident in which he had slapped a shirker two years previously, during the Sicily campaign. A New York newspaper printed the completely false claim that when Patton had slapped the soldier who was Jewish, he had called him a “yellow-bellied Jew.”

  9. AND CONTINUED:

    The unmistakable hatred which had been directed at him during this press conference finally opened Patton’s eyes fully as to what was afoot. In his diary that night lie wrote:

    “There is a very apparent Semitic influence in the press. They are trying to do two things: first, implement communism, and second, see that all businessmen of German ancestry and non-Jewish antecedents are thrown out of their jobs.

    “They have utterly lost the Anglo-Saxon conception of justice and feel that a man can be kicked out because somebody else says he is a Nazi. They were evidently quite shocked when I told them I would kick nobody out without the successful proof of guilt before a court of law . . .

    “Another point which the press harped on was the fact that we were doing too much for the Germans to the detriment of the DP’s, most of whom are Jews. I could not give the answer to that one, because the answer is that, in my opinion and that of most nonpolitical officers, it is vitally necessary for us to build Germany up now as a buffer state against Russia. In fact, I am afraid we have waited too long.”

    And in a letter of the same date to his wife: “I will probably be in the headlines before you get this, as the press is trying to quote me as being more interested in restoring order in Germany than in catching Nazis. I can’t tell them the truth that unless we restore Germany we will insure that communism takes America.”

    Eisenhower responded immediately to the press outcry against Patton and made the decision to relieve him of his duties as military governor and “kick him upstairs” as the commander of the Fifteenth Army. In a letter to his wife on September 29, Patton indicated that he was, in a way, not unhappy with his new assignment, because “I would like it much better than being a sort of executioner to the best race in Europe.”

    On October 22 he wrote a long letter to Maj. Gen. James G. Harbord, who was back in the States. In the letter Patton bitterly condemned the Morgenthau policy; Eisenhower’s pusillanimous behavior in the face of Jewish demands; the strong pro-Soviet bias in the press; and the politicization, corruption, degradation, and demoralization of the U.S. Army which these things were causing.

    He saw the demoralization of the Army as a deliberate goal of America’s enemies:

    “I have been just as furious as you at the compilation of lies which the communist and Semitic elements of our government have leveled against me and practically every other commander. In my opinion it is a deliberate attempt to alienate the soldier vote from the commanders, because the communists know that soldiers are not communistic, and they fear what eleven million votes (of veterans) would do.”

    In his letter to Harbord, Patton also revealed his own plans to fight those who were destroying the morale and integrity of the Army and endangering America’s future by not opposing the growing Soviet might:

    “It is my present thought . . . that when I finish this job, which will be around the first of the year, I shall resign, not retire, because if I retire I will still have a gag in my mouth . . . I should not start a limited counterattack, which would be contrary to my military theories, but should wait until I can start an all-out offensive . . . .”
