I have enduring memories of the lies the communist lecturers at university would tell us about communism. For example, I was informed that my quip that the only difference between Hitler and Stalin was that Stalin invaded Poland from the West, was “puerile”. I think I could find about 100 million reasons why it was not puerile.
Lies About Communism 101 begins with the assertion that Lenin was the good communist and Stalin corrupted it all and is responsible for all the killing. Again, there about 100 million pieces of evidence which disprove this. Here is one:
“Comrades! The kulak uprising in your five districts must be crushed without pity … You must make example of these people. (1) Hang (I mean hang publicly, so that people see it) at least 100 kulaks, rich bastards, and known bloodsuckers. (2) Publish their names. (3) Seize all their grain. (4) Single out the hostages per my instructions in yesterday’s telegram. Do all this so that for miles around people see it all, understand it, tremble, and tell themselves that we are killing the bloodthirsty kulaks and that we will continue to do so … Yours, Lenin. P.S. Find tougher people.”
