Communists Everywhere!

The Glenn Beck program gets unintentionally better and better.

Looking past Glenn’s assertion that liberals and progressives are but a step away from building gulags, he is correct that you can find communist symbols at some of these iconic locations, and many had contributions to them made by prominent communists such as Diego Rivera (who would not alter his Man at the Crossroads as to remove a depiction of Lenin). But it’s likely not a grand illuminati conspiracy like Beck seems to believe, but the fact that many artists were communists, especially in the 20s and 30s.

History and a Litigious Society

Almost too bizarre and comical to be true. From the Telegraph.
"The grandson of Joseph Stalin has begun a libel suit against one of Russia's leading liberal newspapers, accusing it of lying in an article that stated the wartime leader had killed Soviet citizens."

Jams has a lot more on this.

The Perpetual Campaign

The pic above from comrade Zombie. I can’t blame the Democrats (or any political group) to bring their message to the people, especially as this current Democrat tries to do to healthcare what many before him has failed to do, but the thought of living through yet another campaign so soon after the recent election makes me a bit pale at the moment.
