Russia provides the Perfect Antifa Nazi/White Supremacist Analogy

From Stet­tin in the Baltic to Tri­este in the Adri­atic, an iron cur­tain has descended across the continent.

There still seem to be some includ­ing in media, who can’t seem grasp the con­cept that despite their name, their pro­claimed oppo­si­tion to Nazis and their vio­lent con­fronta­tions with the equally vile David Duke crowd ANTIFA is noth­ing but a bunch of vio­lent left­ist thugs.

So that being the case I’d like to thank the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion for giv­ing the per­fect anal­ogy for this sit­u­a­tion (via hot air and twitter)

They fleshed out their objec­tion in a face­book post that said in part:

There are var­i­ous ways to deal with incon­ve­nient his­tor­i­cal facts. You can take them on the chin or ignore them. Sadly, the lat­ter is what the Pol­ish author­i­ties have been doing recently. You see, politi­cians in War­saw con­tinue to deny the Soviet Union’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in Poland’s lib­er­a­tion from fas­cism and the restora­tion of Pol­ish inde­pen­dence, after the Sec­ond World War.

This argu­ment would have some weight if it wasn’t for two sim­ple facts:

The Russ­ian Inva­sion of Poland in Sept 1939.

While Hitler was invad­ing Poland from the west offi­cially kick­ing off World War 2 in Europe, the Soviet Union was invad­ing from the west in accor­dance with their nations pact with Hitler. Ed Mor­ris­sey explains:

Soviet troops invaded Poland from the east after Nazi troops had invaded from the west. That pact not only sealed Poland’s fate for decades, but also that of Esto­nia, Latvia, Lithua­nia, and that of Fin­land for a much shorter period. Had the Sovi­ets not signed that pact, World War II might never have hap­pened at all

Six years before the famous pho­tos of US troops shak­ing hands with their Russ­ian allies as their armies met in Ger­many com­ing from oppo­site direc­tions, Russ­ian Troops where shak­ing hands with Ger­man Troops as their armies met in Poland after div­ing up the coun­try between themselves.

It wasn’t until June 1941 when Hitler attacked west turn­ing on the Sovi­ets that the Russ­ian peo­ple and the Soviet gov­ern­ment joined the “Down with Hitler” and “Down with Nazis” team.

The Com­ing of the Iron Curtain.

After the US and British forces drove the Ger­mans out of France, Hol­land, Bel­gium and Italy and Caused them to pull out of Greece, Den­mark and Nor­way those coun­tries had their inde­pen­dence restored, and gov­ern­ment of their people’s own choos­ing put back in place. Even in the west­ern part of Ger­many and Berlin, pop­u­lar democ­racy was restored and peo­ple were free to live as they choose.

Mean­while not only did the Sovi­ets retake and keep Esto­nia, Latvia and Lithua­nia that the Nazis had grabbed on their way east they occu­pied Poland, Hun­gary, Roma­nia, Bul­garia, Czecho­slo­va­kia (now the Czech and Slo­vak republics) set up pup­pet gov­ern­ments and ruled with an iron hand and crush­ing pop­u­lar move­ments for self gov­ern­ment in Hun­gary and Czecho­slo­va­kia from 1945 till the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

The Soviet Union did the Nazis out of Poland but it was the efforts of St. Pope John Paul II, Lech Walessa and the Rea­gan Admin­is­tra­tion that finally led to the actual lib­er­a­tion of Poland over 40 years after the last Nazi sol­der had retreated.

So what does this his­tory teach us? It reminds us of two crit­i­cal facts

The Sovi­ets and the Nazis were rivals both try­ing to expand evil empires that brought slaugh­ter and oppres­sion to those who they ruled.

That you can be the most effec­tive Nazi killers of all time (as the Sovi­ets were) but still be no good rot­ten bas­tards who should be con­demned, con­fronted and con­tained for the sake of human­ity and freedom.

That in a nut­shell is the real­ity here in Amer­ica when it comes to ANTIFA.

No amount of anti Nazi rhetoric on behalf of ANTIFA makes the any­thing other than a bunch of masked thugs no bet­ter than the Nazis or White Suprema­cists who they rivals of and the only rea­son why they are por­trayed oth­er­wise is the same rea­son why the crimes of Com­mu­nists like the Sovi­ets get short shift in media and acad­e­mia is because they share the same left­ist ideology.

From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the continent.

There still seem to be some including in media, who can’t seem grasp the concept that despite their name, their proclaimed opposition to Nazis and their violent confrontations with the equally vile David Duke crowd ANTIFA is nothing but a bunch of violent leftist thugs.

So that being the case I’d like to thank the Russian Federation for giving the perfect analogy for this situation (via hot air and twitter)

They fleshed out their objection in a facebook post that said in part:

There are various ways to deal with inconvenient historical facts. You can take them on the chin or ignore them. Sadly, the latter is what the Polish authorities have been doing recently. You see, politicians in Warsaw continue to deny the Soviet Union’s participation in Poland’s liberation from fascism and the restoration of Polish independence, after the Second World War.

This argument would have some weight if it wasn’t for two simple facts:

The Russian Invasion of Poland in Sept 1939.

While Hitler was invading Poland from the west officially kicking off World War 2 in Europe, the Soviet Union was invading from the west in accordance with their nations pact with Hitler. Ed Morrissey explains:

Soviet troops invaded Poland from the east after Nazi troops had invaded from the west. That pact not only sealed Poland’s fate for decades, but also that of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and that of Finland for a much shorter period. Had the Soviets not signed that pact, World War II might never have happened at all

Six years before the famous photos of US troops shaking hands with their Russian allies as their armies met in Germany coming from opposite directions, Russian Troops where shaking hands with German Troops as their armies met in Poland after diving up the country between themselves.

It wasn’t until June 1941 when Hitler attacked west turning on the Soviets that the Russian people and the Soviet government joined the “Down with Hitler” and “Down with Nazis” team.

The Coming of the Iron Curtain.

After the US and British forces drove the Germans out of France, Holland, Belgium and Italy and Caused them to pull out of Greece, Denmark and Norway those countries had their independence restored, and government of their people’s own choosing put back in place. Even in the western part of Germany and Berlin, popular democracy was restored and people were free to live as they choose.

Meanwhile not only did the Soviets retake and keep Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania that the Nazis had grabbed on their way east they occupied Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia (now the Czech and Slovak republics) set up puppet governments and ruled with an iron hand and crushing popular movements for self government in Hungary and Czechoslovakia from 1945 till the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

The Soviet Union did the Nazis out of Poland but it was the efforts of St. Pope John Paul II, Lech Walessa and the Reagan Administration that finally led to the actual liberation of Poland over 40 years after the last Nazi solder had retreated.

So what does this history teach us? It reminds us of two critical facts

The Soviets and the Nazis were rivals both trying to expand evil empires that brought slaughter and oppression to those who they ruled.

That you can be the most effective Nazi killers of all time (as the Soviets were) but still be no good rotten bastards who should be condemned, confronted and contained for the sake of humanity and freedom.

That in a nutshell is the reality here in America when it comes to ANTIFA.

No amount of anti Nazi rhetoric on behalf of ANTIFA makes the anything other than a bunch of masked thugs no better than the Nazis or White Supremacists who they rivals of and the only reason why they are portrayed otherwise is the same reason why the crimes of Communists like the Soviets get short shift in media and academia is because they share the same leftist ideology.
