A recent study revealed a third of millennials believe President George W. Bush killed more people than Joseph Stalin. In fact, 75% are oblivious that communist governments have slaughtered over 100 million people. This ignorance of history is completely by design. Liberal progressives are actively scrubbing Imperial Japan, the Holocaust, Nazi Germany, and socialism from our history books. They have already succeeded in removing Stalin and other communist dictators as the recent polls revealed.
Stalin initially joined forces with Adolf Hilter leading up to World War II. Since Stalin massacred his own people and starved millions of Ukrainians, he saw no problem with Hilter. Stalin’s breaking point only came after Hilter invaded parts of the U.S.S.R. The Soviet Union quickly changed sides and cooperated with the Allies to defeat him.
The Soviet Union, England, France and the United States divided Germany following the war. Each received a section of the country to occupy. The capital of Berlin was also divided despite its location 100 miles in communist territory. As a result, Western Allies needed to travel through East Germany to deliver supplies to their portion of the capital.
With the Cold War well on its way, Stalin began the Berlin Blockade in June of 1948. He stopped all provisions, including food and fuel, sent to West Berlin from the Allies. Stalin wanted to force the Allies to buy supplies from him. He risked the lives of 2 million West Berliners in a humanitarian war because he wanted complete control of the city.
Unable to interrupt air travel, the Allies organized The Berlin Airlift within days. Planes delivered food, supplies, and fuel around the clock to West Berlin. The campaign was so successful it was embarrassing to Stalin. He stopped the embargo after 11 months. The whole event caused the Allies to separate Germany into two distinct states as opposed to occupied territories.
Stalin now had the freedom he wanted over East Germany, minus West Berlin. For his communist Utopia to succeed in Germany, Stalin had to keep citizens confined. They had to be forced to remain to work in Stalin’s factories instead of migrating to free market West Germany.
In 1949, Stalin built fencing, ditches, and traps, called the “Inner German Boarder.” This “wall” separated the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) from the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany). The wall completely encircling West Berlin began construction in 1960.
While Western Germany flourished, Eastern Germany deteriorated and became desolate. Buildings fell apart. Supplies were highly regulated and controlled. Jobs were scarce and working conditions were deplorable.
The East Germany government only allowed one car in the state, the government built Trabant. It came in any color you wanted, but they all resembled pale blue. East Germans were on a waiting list up to two decades to own one of the worst cars ever produced. At the same time, West Germans rebuilt BMW after several setbacks, including losing their factory in Eisenach to the East. Ask any millennial which brand they’ve heard of or would want to own.
Republican President Ronald Reagan traveled to Germany in June of 1987 and boldly declared, “Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” When the wall fell 2 years later, East Germans rushed the boarder to the freedom in the west. Many citizens drove their Trabants to the “walls” and abandoned them before crossing the barriers into freedom. They could not get out of communist German and away from its oppressive policies fast enough. If millennials knew any of this, they would be running too.
During his 30-year reign, Stalin killed an estimated 20 million of his own people but it could be as high as 60 million. As accurate records were not kept, no one knows for sure.
Stalin lied to and manipulated people to do his will. He called them “useful idiots.” Liberal progressives are doing the same thing to millennials. They are using these trusting and unsuspecting “useful idiots” to push forth an agenda they know Americans would reject if aware of it. Progressives are purposely keeping our youth ignorant so they will agree to whatever “solution” they suggest to America’s problems.
Liberal progressives lie about Stalin’s communism. Now they are lying about Trump’s patriotism.
The same milliennials who know nothing of communist history criticize presidential candidate Donald Trump for wanting to build a wall on the Mexican boarder. They condemn him for doing what one of their heroes did 60 years ago.
If millennials were given the truth, they would see the major differences between Stalin’s wall and Trump’s wall. They would also recognize the obvious contrasts between communism and freedom.
Stalin built his wall to control Germans. He held them captive. During the Cold War, East Germany killed almost 900 citizens trying to escape.
Trump wants to build a wall to keep Americans safe. Stalin’s wall restricted Eastern Germans from the West. Trump’s wall is not to prevent immigration but to ensure we know who’s coming in.
Trump wants to protect US citizens from people who desire to harm us. Millions of Americans agree we just want everyone to come legally through the front door.
There is evidence that ISIS members have already crossed unchecked boarders. They are already here. Without knowledge of where these terrorists are, every military base, public event, marathon, Christmas Party, mall, gay bar and gathering that you, your family, and your friends attend is a potential target. Open boarders, as the Democrats want, would undoubtedly escalate terrorist attacks exponentially. This should be a concern for all Americans regardless of party affiliation.
People risk death by their own government to escape the horrors of communism. Likewise, others break the law and risk imprisonment, death, sex slavery and indebtedness to drug lords for the chance to enter the glories of America’s liberty. This revelation alone should scream volumes to millennials.
The recent poll is a wake up call to us all. If our children are not taught the barbarity and evil that comes with socialist and communist regimes, they will gladly embrace them.
We, as parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, must educate our youth ourselves. After honest study, millennials will discover communism is actually what they are fighting against. It’s up to us to help them learn the truth as we all know the public education system will never do it.
But that’s just my 2 cents.
