Anti-Communist Revolutions are Spreading
Left-wing “progressives” and the “libertarian” Infowars.com website of Alex Jones are having a nervous breakdown over events in Ukraine. The anti-communist revolution has the potential to reveal who is really committed to the notion of a “Free World” and seek to protect it against a resurgent Russia. There are lessons here for freedom-loving people around the world.
Ukrainian-Americans are elated. “The Ukrainian revolution has won today and it’s very emotional for me,” writes Oleg Atbashian, a writer and graphic artist from the former USSR who was born and raised in Ukraine.

In reality, this humorous entry isn’t far from the truth. A “Good Bye Lenin” website shows the number of Lenin statues being toppled so far. A video shows some being toppled while this photo list has pictures of the statues that have been targeted.

Obama has been supported by an inner circle at the White House with analytical assistance from some elements of the U.S. intelligence community.”
This used to be called “appeasement.” It still seems to be the left’s foreign policy.
