They non-aggressively invaded Poland together.  :lol:

Still wasn't an alliance. The Germans knew the Soviets also had their eyes on Poland so they opted to split the country with the Soviets, who at that point had given up on building a coalition and wanted Germany to focus on the West, as to prevent the Soviets from attacking them as well. Plus, it wasn't really a secret that Stalin also hated Poland for numerous reasons, ranging from personal pettiness to the obvious desire for land grabbing.

The closest they got to actually forming an alliance was when the UK and France were preparing to bomb Baku but had to scrap it since Fall Gelb was launched.

Is this an attempt to say the USSR wasn't so bad?  Good luck with that.

 

Stalin’s extremely brutal 30-year rule as absolute ruler of the Soviet Union featured so many atrocities, including purges, expulsions, forced displacements, imprisonment in labor camps, manufactured famines, torture and good old-fashioned acts of mass murder and massacres (not to mention World War II) that the complete toll of bloodshed will likely never be known.

An amoral psychopath and paranoid with a gangster’s mentality, Stalin eliminated anyone and everyone who was a threat to his power – including (and especially) former allies. He had absolutely no regard for the sanctity of human life.

In February 1989, two years before the fall of the Soviet Union, a research paper by Georgian historian Roy Aleksandrovich Medvedev published in the weekly tabloid Argumenti i Fakti estimated that the death toll directly attributable to Stalin’s rule amounted to some 20 million lives (on top of the estimated 20 million Soviet troops and civilians who perished in the Second World War), for a total tally of 40 million.

Oh, wow, Stalin was a terrible person? I never knew.

I also pointed out that land grabbing was one of Stalin's goals which is why eastern Poland and turning a blind eye to what he was going to do in the Baltics, Romania, and attempted to do with Finland was enough to buy him off to get the non-aggression pact.

So, again: Not an alliance.

Of course it's shadow banned.  That's pretty standard for any video that can be seen as criticism of the left in any way.  

I don't find her videos to be biased at all.  I can see what she's talking about in the body language analysis.  She clearly knows what she's talking about.  

How would you know?

I also don't understand the point of lumping the 20 million casualties the Soviets suffered in WW2 on Stalin. Feel like it's more apt to put those bodies on Hitler seeing as how, y'know, his actions were the ones that killed them.

This is among the most depressing thing about current politics.  There ARE folks out there calling the shots straight.  There ARE folks letting us know what is fraud, what is propaganda, and what are lies.

But to the brainwashed, they are part of the lies of the "left".

I got in trouble for this a long time ago, and I guess I will get in trouble for this again:  But if people can be convinced that lies are truth and truth is a lie, atrocities come easy.  

Let's be clear, SB:  Snopes is a leftist lie.  Politifact.com is a leftist lie.But Donald Trump is the truth.  

What can be done about this?

Why are y'all using terms and phrases Democrats, the party of slavery and segregation, used?

Painfully ironic that the guy loves the Republican Party, who used to be the party of Lincoln and fiscal responsibility.

Trump fighting ‘liberal paper straws’ with $15 plastic set during campaign

By Mark Moore

Forget the debate between socialism and democracy — the 2020 election is coming down to a contest between paper and recyclable straws.

President Trump’s reelection campaign is calling on supporters to reject “liberal paper straws” that turn soggy and “stand” with the president and “buy your pack of recyclable straws today.”

The website touts Trump’s tubes as BPA free, 9-inches long, laser-engraved with the president’s name and made in the USA.

They go $15 for a pack of 10.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, stirred people’s political appetites for the straws in an email on Friday.

“I’m so over paper straws, and I’m sure you are too. Much like most liberal ideas, paper straws don’t work and they fall apart instantly. That’s why we just launched our latest product – Official Trump Straws,” he wrote. “Now you can finally be free from liberal paper straws that fall apart within minutes and ruin your drink.”

 

At least Trump is aware that his supporters suck...

Because the only alternative to Trump is pure Marxism. 

That's why they give mealy-mouthed rebukes to him telling four women of color to go back to their own countries.  They claim to not approve of it, but they'll continue to allow it since they think it's either him or the ghost of Stalin past.

The guys in TATF had a hissy fit a couple of years ago when I said Manual is homophobic for asking draftees if they like men. The excuses made were pretty terrible.
