Gov't control using starvation

The horrific event, known in Ukrainian as the Holodomor (literally, murder by starvation), took place in 1932-1933, less than twenty years after Ukraine was forcibly incorporated into the Soviet Union. Determined to force all Ukrainian farmers onto collective farms, to crush the burgeoning national revival, and to forestall any calls for Ukraine's independence, the brutal Communist regime of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin embarked on a campaign to starve the Ukrainian people into submission.

The Soviet government confiscated all the grain produced by Ukrainian farmers, withheld other foodstuffs, executed anyone trying to obtain food, and punished those who attempted to flee. As a result, in the land called the Breadbasket of Europe, millions of men, women, and children were starved to death.

And guess who was covering for Uncle Joe Stalin during all of this? Some writer named Walter Duranty from... wait for it... The New York Times!

He even got a Pulitzer Prize for his glowing tributes to how swell Uncle Joe was doing. I guess the NYT has a display of all the Pulitzers their staff have won over the years, but hear tell that Duranty's, while still displayed, has a black ribbon or something on it. That's big of them.

If there is enough civilization left to record the fact, after the revolution here and resulting total implosion of global economy and transportation web, Obama and the Dhimmicrats will make Stalin look totally bush league. The global famine resulting from the collapse of the transport web will result in 100s of millions - if not BILLIONS - of deaths world wide.

Since the leftists cannot conceive of and thus prepare for the coming catastrophe, they will surely perish in disproportionate numbers. One can hope that the gene that contributes to such mental shortcomings will be eliminated from the gene pool within a couple of generations. If so then future historians will call the coming calamity "the great culling" and consider it a positive event for the long term health of the species. When you factor in the fact that - so far as I am aware - NO muslim country feeds itself, the long term benefits to our species could prove to be considerable.

There is a silver lining to every dark cloud if you only look for it hard enough.
