Putin Looks To Make Equating Stalin, USSR to Hitler, Nazi Germany Illegal

Russian lawmakers are looking for prohibit people from comparing the behavior of the Soviet army and Joseph Stalin to the actions of Nazi soldiers and Adolf Hitler.  Russian President Vladimir Putin called for the bill to be introduced after a meeting of the Presidential Council for Culture and the Arts in October. Opponents of the legislation criticized her for violating freedom of expression. However, supporters of the bill argue that it is not about clamping down on what people say, but recognizing Russia’s contribution to Hitler’s downfall.

Indeed, the comparison of Stalin to Hitler may not be fair, because when it comes to mass murder, Stalin makes Hitler look like a lightweight. But that is of no concern to old Vlad, who wants “a balanced assessment of Stalin.”

It is impossible to make a general judgment. It is evident that, from 1924 to 1953, the country that Stalin ruled changed from an agrarian to an industrial society.”

Fair enough.  Bernie Sanders once similarly claimed that Fidel Castro was not “all bad” because he taught Cuban children how to read.  So we really need to give these mass murderers a break, because as Stalin himself said, “A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.”

And nobody knows it better than Putin himself.

But when it comes to suppressing freedom of speech, the Russian tyrant doesn’t hold a candle to the radical Left in America. In fact, when it comes to giving out a Free Expression Award, choosing between Vladimir Putin and Susan Wojcicki( CEO of YouTube) is not a tough call.

Here is a short list of things that will get you doxed and fired by the radical Left faster than it takes Gavin Newsom to make a French Laundry reservation:

But getting back to tyrants, Putin has an easy life in the sense that he does not need to worry about fixing elections. Putin’s approval rating in Russia currently stands at 65%. It is down from 88%, which means he needs to catch up on killing the opposition. Russian people sure love their tyrants. And the young generation of Americans can’t wait to get one of their own.

According to PEW Research, 40% of young Americans no longer value freedom of speech.

According to Harris Poll, over half of young Americans now support socialism.

And because Joe Biden shares their sentiment, American youth loves him. Sure, you can argue that in terms of dead bodies, Joe Biden’s policies have either already surpassed, or will soon surpass Vladimir Putin’s impressive record. But the important thing is Joe Biden has established a regular schedule, including coffee in the mornings with the first lady. And CNN cannot put a price on that accomplishment.

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.
