Why on earth are these people supporting a Stalinist?

What would convince any normal human to vote for a Stalinist?

Yes, the left is loopy, the left-liberal though seemingly sane, is still PC for all that. But why mass rallies for a Stalinist?

I spoke with one of these and he saw only bloodied noses being given to ‘establishment’ pollies who had ignored the rank and file. Interesting but that’s precisely our motivation with UKIP, Farage and Brexit.

Farage? That far right fascist! Explain, I asked. Well, he’s a racist, inn ee?

Er no, quite the opposite. Deaf ears.

So these idiots have got some notion that promises of free handouts or whatever Corbyn is offering are all he’s about. Oh yes, plus ‘freedom’.

Freedom? From a Stalinist? Have these people at these rallies ever been to Russia, seen the devastation even today, heard old men and women on Stalin?

Of all the worrying things today – and Sturgeon is the latest – nothing worries me more, politically, than people actually calling Corbyn ‘populist’. Oblivious to what a Stalinist is about.

    Fascism is an invention of the Left. It always has been. The endless posturing over it being ‘right wing’ is absurd, regardless of what Google and wikipedia present. The Left hold a monopoly on oppressive government. Always have, always will.

    That people fervently support Corbyn is easy to explain: they have never known want, insecurity, suffering. Never had to fight in wars, never known them. Never known hunger or want and have lived charmed lives with a generous, extensive state giving them all they want. They are rich, comfortable and safe. Of course they believe other people should have things for free. After all, they’ve everything they want, why shouldn’t everyone else?

    It is the luxury of arrogance, of ease, of decadence. They don’t care how it ends up. They just want more. People like that are never going to vote for a party that says you should work and earn your living, that achievement has to be earned. They want it all, because that’s what they’ve got without putting effort in. They are why civilisation falls.

      Indeed Errol, that’s almost a eulogy to generation snowflake.
      Left to their own devices they would perish, and may well do so when the magic money tree is barren.

    Corbyn may have won the battle over ‘leadership’ of the Labour party, but he is far from being the controller. Look behind the leader’s chair and there are several others who are pulling the strings. When Livingstone was the deputy leader of the old LCC, there were few who did not know that he was the real power behind the throne. It was his socialist policies which were introduced. So it will be for Corbyn, probably a nice enough bloke, but a naive simpleton in thrall to the union leaders who will demand he repay them for their support by, in turn, supporting their policies. Scargill did it with the NUM funded Labour party and being responsible for bringing down a Tory government. Corbyn’s parameters, or should that just be ‘masters’, aren’t interested in the democratic process of elections. They just want the power, no matter who they have to destroy, and no matter what the majority of the voting population want. And once they get in, a few changes in the law will make it impossible to get them out.

    Those amongst us who have seen the horrors of Soviet Russia, the Communist Bloc states, along with their miserable inhabitants, know only too well that the histories, the novels, the detailed lists of the tortured and the downtrodden; all were true.

    The modern Flower children just cannot understand, until they have actually seen it, the awful power of the true Communist State in operation!
