I'm sure Stalin felt the same way

High Country Conservative adds his two cents to the big Kite Flight protest yesterday at Appalachian. He adds detail to the (I'm sorry, how else can I describe them) nutjobs who called for the event, The World Can't Wait.

HCC points out how these Bush-haters just love them some Stalin. Just look at the group's FAQ.

Upon reading it, yet another movie scene comes to mind. I envision Reck emboding one of the lead roles in the classic movie, "Poltergeist":
"Cross over, children. All are welcome. All welcome, go into the light...There is peace and serenity in the light."
One question - does the communist leadership in China allow ordinary citizens the opportunity to "open up avenues to get to the society they want"? Does Cuba? Did Stalin's Russia?

Yet Bush is the enemy, as the FAQ HHC quotes continues with:
But to turn the question around, if you refuse to pitch in to November 2, when you know that this is what has to be done, just because there are communists in it, then you need to think about how well that worked back in Nazi Germany (when the many forces opposed to Hitler could not find the ways to unite).
Nutjobs. No other word describes them. Shame on the campus paper for not seeing an obvious contradiction in its editorial - applauding an event "the Revolutionary Communist Party helped initiate" while also bragging about "free speech zones" on campus.
