Pravda, a once powerful USSR newspaper, has come out of the woodwork to call President Obama a “Communist without question.” Given the paper’s understanding of the Communist regime, its statement has rung true with far right wing conservatives who are constantly looking for any chance to attack the POTUS.
The President Obama communist comment was part of an article titled “Obama’s Soviet Mistake” in which the newspaper offers a biting critique of the President’s policies.
In the article, author Xavier Lerma says Obama’s “cult of personality” has served to mesmerize the ignorant in America. The author says “fools” are following Obama just as they had Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Lerma writes:
“Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”
In a laughable twist, the author tries to turn around the situation by claiming that Vladimir Putin has been sounding more like a “Ronald Reagan” type figure then the very conservatives serving America today.
In comparing Putin to Obama, the writer offers these recent statements from Putin:
“…we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.
“The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.
“There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.”
Pravda use to be the central voice for the communist party in the USSR; what might be most amazing is that this largely irrelevant newspaper is still managing to create a communist stir.
