Presidential Message on the National Day for the Victims of Communism

Useful to have on hand, next time someone starts pontificating about Nazis and forgets to mention the human excrement waving Hammer & Sickle flags.

Issued on: November 7, 2018

Quote:
On the National Day for the Victims of Communism, we honor the memory of the more than 100 million people who have been killed and persecuted by communist totalitarian regimes. We also reaffirm our steadfast support for those who strive for peace, prosperity, and freedom around the world.

Since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, we have witnessed the effects of the tyrannical communist ideology—anguish, repression, and death. Communism subordinates inherent human rights to the purported well-being of all, resulting in the extermination of religious freedom, private property, free speech, and, far too often, life. These horrors have included Ukrainians deliberately starved in the Holodomor, Russians purged in the Great Terror, Cambodians murdered in the killing fields, and Berliners shot as they tried to escape to freedom. The victims of these and many other atrocities bear silent testimony to the undeniable fact that communism, and the pursuit of it, will forever be destructive to the human spirit and to the prosperity of mankind.

Today, we remember all who have been denied the great blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness under oppressive communist regimes. Together, we mourn the unbearable losses so many have endured under communism, and we renew our pledge to continue advancing the cause of freedom and opportunity for all.

shoot, the chinese have more than a hundred million names in the records of people they killed by public beatings or planned starvation between 1958 and 1976...the estimate is prolly low, by half.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.


The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

There is a Communist Revolution happening at this very moment in America. It's moving fast now, as their window of opportunity is closing thanks to President Trump. They won't give up without a fight--be ready.

Thank God Pence is President of the US Senate, and as long as we hold 50 votes against the communists elected by republicans, Pence can break any ties.

The Swamp will outlast Trump.

We had GOP senate, house, and president. And they did nothing despite all the pre-trump rhetoric. Because the Swamp told them what to do.
