Spitting on Stalin: Hungary, 1956
All over the world, people have risked death, exposed themselves to danger and to hardship–to be free. Most of them wanted to be free from so-called “socialist” governments. No one talks about the Iron Curtain anymore, but in 1956 it was a real thing. And the people of Hungary put their lives on the line to get rid of it. But the Soviet Union intervened to crush them.
A few years later it was refugees from Cuba, risking their lives to escape from communism and come to America. Because freedom is that much better than socialism! And worth risking everything, to get it.
What would those people make of us today, passionately flirting with socialism, shrugging our shoulders as the whole Democrat Party cruises down the Far Left speedway, on fire to “fundamentally transform” our country into a Third World hell-hole?
And once they do it to us, there’ll no noplace left to go.
