Reminder: October Is Red History Month...
Yes, this October is the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.
You know, the left-wing revolution that led to the murder of 30 million Russians and Ukrainians, most of whom were rural farmers and small town people living outside the major cities.
Leading up to that was Czar Nicholas II being forced to step down as leader -he was persuaded by members of the government that it was the only way to avoid civil war.
He and his family were then arrested, being accused of working in collusion with a foreign country (in that case, Germany).
An interim leadership took over. They were more “moderate” and from the more respectable establishment political system.
But the radicalized groups of insurgents were already rampaging through the streets in violent protests, assassinating officials, terrorizing citizens and sabotaging infrastructure, all the while shouting slogans of “JUSTICE” “EQUALITY” and “TOLERANCE”.
By October of that same year this multi-ethnic “international brotherhood” of social justice warriors forced the interim government to step aside and they took over.
It helped that the press was on their side and even church leaders cautioned against resistance to these vicious thugs. After all, only “rednecks” and “haters” would be against the Bolshevik cause of “social justice”.
Within days of grabbing power the revolutionaries began to destroy churches, execute preachers and began the mass slaughter of tens of millions of rural peoples who were no doubt a threat because they were backwards, ignorant, bigoted and clinging to their guns and bibles.
Surprisingly, much of the military sided with the leftists. Many didn't, but they were no match for the highly organized leftists who had spent decades converting people from every strata of society to their insane and murderous ideology.
They took over what was left of the independent press, appointed new generals for the army, created their own secret police, named new governors for every region, new mayors for every town and new teachers for every school, and so on. The new way would be the rule of the land and anyone who opposed or resisted would be labeled “mentally deranged”, “terrorists” or just “enemies of the people”.
I point all this out for no particular reason whatsoever.
Just thought it was an interesting bit of history.
