Lew, in our new progressive revision of history, the Goolag commands we gotta keep demonizing that old Rebel battle flag of 158 years ago while praising Mexican Marxist avant-garde artists of the Popular Front vanguard of the 1930s and 40s.
Forget that Communist regimes were responsible for the deaths of over 100 million of their own enslaved peoples, while the armies of the Confederate States of America were responsible for exactly how many deaths of their own inhabitants in the War for Southern Independence? And how many did the Damn Yankee invading armies murder?
Reminds me of this 1939 Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA) Chicago rally featuring the towering icon of the Great Emancipator himself, Abraham Lincoln.
No Confederate flags were permitted to be unfurled in those environs.
Evidently the Commies always knew old Abe and where his ideas and true heartfelt sentiments lay.
This 1939 rally was in the period of the Hitler/Stalin Pact which united the two murderous totalitarian rivals in a satanic alliance to attack Poland and further divide and conquer Europe between them.
But that is inconvenient history which must be shoved down the Orwellian Memory Hole.
And no one should dare compare or see a historic parallel between these actions and Lincoln’s War for Coercive National Unification with his murderous invading armies looting, raping, and pillaging their way across the South, transforming its subdued inhabitants into conquered military provinces.
Forget you ever read or saw that comrades.
