What's This Doing On American Catholic?

Something for the weekend.  I have always loved the Internationale, while detesting almost everything about the old Soviet Union (the government, not the people who suffered under it), Marxism in all its meretricious manifestations and all Communist states.  The video above is filled with the type of agit\prop scenes that bored to tears Soviet citizens for generations.   My love for the Internationale extends only to the tune and not to the lyrics which I find banal beyond belief.  Good tune-hideous nightmarish movement, that had succeeded in killing a bit under 150,000,000 human beings as of 2006.

  1. Seems like today’s American President’s policies mirrors many of the policies of the old Soviet Union that caused the death of untold millions. The lifting of the Mexico City policy, the funding of Planned Parenthood, the elimination of the conscious clause, and soon the lifting of restrictions on embrionic stem cell research will only accelerate the murder of innocent children not only in the United States, but around the world.

  2. Poor Shostakovich suffered dearly because he would not totally succumb musically to this kitsch.

  3. Nice posters, too. And I like the silent film MOTHER, based on a novel of the same name, in which the eponymous mother, a revolutionary, is run down by a squad of Czarist cavalry — as with Mel Gibson being ripped apart in BRAVEHEART and the whiny what’s-his-name freezing to death in TITANIC, it is a feel-good moment.
