Pravda made a bold statement over the weekend: the communists have won in America with Barack Obama. Why? Because, much like Russia's past communist leaders, Americans re-elected him for a second term without so much as a stated economic strategy for success. Not even Glenn could disagree with the Russian "news" outlet.
"This is Pravda. And they are saying Obama is bringing America old‑style Soviet Communist practices. And Putin is perfect and he has learned. Again it's only spin. They are only trying to make us look bad, but what they're saying about what we're doing is 100% accurate," Glenn said. "And I love this: Obama was recently reelected for a second term by an illiterate society, and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya, and Syria. He plans his next war with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way."
TheBlaze reported that the majority of the article contrasts Obama and Putin, portraying Putin as a traditional American conservative interested in lowering taxes and shrinking government in order to grow the economy. As Glenn noted above, most of this is just spin for Putin. But much of what Pravda says about Obama following many of the old school communist tactics are also true.
Pravda writer Xavier Lermer said, “Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law."
He also wrote of Obama, "He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion."
