Short article. Had to write it. Couldn't help it.
If ignorance is a demonic force it definitely manifests itself in the statements by Joe Scarborough as well as in the statements by our MSM pundits. November 2, 6am, Moronic Joe answers to the statement by some pundit regarding the 'civil war in the GOP ranks' and 'stalinist vicious persecution of their own.'
'Stalinist'? Of course, I understand that 'Nixonian' could offend Nancy and 'Hitlerite' (he killed the whole bunch of his comrades during the ' Night of Long Knives') could offend Hitler ( he is our buddy still, just behaved badly), so the pundit uses the only historical figure he remembers from High School. But how about 'Robespierian'? Too long? How about 'Bushite' then? That one viciously went for anyone; remember Paul O'Neil?
Caught my drift? But I am just warming up because we have Moronic Joe on the prowl and off he goes:
- Joseph Stalin, that's the guy who killed 40 -50 (easy, huh?- MS) million of his own people. Made Hitler look like an amateur; 6 million against 40 -50...
Wow, Joe, the joggler of the millions of dead! No wonder we have such an abysmal level of morality in this country. But here is wisdom: If Stalin had kiiled 40-50 (following Joe, the merciless moron of the Y2009) million people, then it would mean he killed about 2 million per year of his power period (1929-1953). But you see, about 27 million people died in the war with Hitler only in the Soviet Union, so if we add those to the Hitler's list and subtract from the Stalin's we will get about equal score. If we consider not only the Jews (Joe just killed the Jews only; he doesn't know better)- then Hitler kind off regains an authority, at least in Europe. But as I said, Joe cannot offend Hitler, our buddy who misbehaved.
Now, the truth is that Stalin didn't kill millions of people. Millions died because of his socio-economic policy. But if we consider the people dying from the socio-economic policies, please, Joe, let's then count in about 1 million people who died as a result of the US occupation of Iraq and hundreds of thousands who died in Afghanistan. We did not kill them. We just denied them the right to live. Joe should know that; he is a 'conservative' guy who 'doesn't give a damn about Europe'. That is, of course if he doesn't make stupid remarks about its history.
And last but not least. If we consider the RATE of killing people, by all means USA keeps the first place in that department. Killing 100000 Japanese civilians in a MINUTE by the nuclear bomb is unsurpassable. So maybe Joe should use the metaphor, 'Like Enola Gay'. Not a chance, I know. Still, I would advise Joe, the Moron to be careful with the Uncle Joe's ghost. Sometimes they come back.
