Pravda Lives Up to Its Name

Pravda, which is Russian for "truth", was the mouthpiece of the old USSR. It was formerly known for its anti-western (especially anti-US) pieces.

With the Soviet Union out of the way for about twenty years, though, the periodical can afford to beat up on the US (or at least one person n the US) for altogether different reasons:

"The famed Russian news site “Pravda,” which ironically was formed as the official Communist publication of the former Soviet Union, recently released a scathing opinion column entitled, “Obama’s Soviet Mistake,” in which the author unabashedly labelsthe U.S. president a “Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so.”

The author, Xavier Lerma, goes on to note how Obama’s “cult of personality” has mesmerized the ignorant in America, who will follow the hope and change icon in much the same way as ”fools” still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia....."

The article goes on to rip the anti-business political climate that has been cultivated by the Obama administration. 

The ongoing attack (By our own people) on our culture was not ignored either:

"The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its’ flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free.

“Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law,” Lerma notes astutely.

In terms of all of the U.S. States that have filed petitions to secede from the union, Lerma coins these Americans” hostages to the Communists in power” who will eventually need to rise up in the face of “tyranny.” Lerma concludes with a powerful comparison of the suffering endured for nearly a century under the oppression and brutality of the USSR and quotes Don Mclean’s famed song, “American Pie”:"

It's good to know that at least people outside the US can see where we are going.
