I am amazed the Bush one hasn't received the same treatment.

Also, I am a little freaked out that it looks more lifelike than he does! The wax figure looks like something is going on behind those eyes, unlike the real one

Ah, but are you sure the one in office is the real one? Maybe they replaced him already.

Your comparison is *somewhat* off the mark.

Except Lenin is a bit more loved in Russia than Hitler in Germany .

Plus they don't need a wax figure, they got the real thing.

Update: I have now made it my life's goal to rip Lenin's head off.

For Capitalism!

And Freedom!

And Democracy!

And big-ass gas-guzzling SUVs!

I will probably be executed by angry Russians, but don't worry.

And no you can't have my stuff.

Well, if you were to think of any reasons, how about mass murdering the Russians and dreams of world conquest?
Just a thought...

That other girl on that Paris-Movie-trailer that is not Paris...wasn't she one of the daughters on "Step by Step"?

Do you make a concerted effort to be one of the most dull and uninteresting crypto-trolls here or does it come naturally to you?

Sometimes the first alternative does in fact amuse me.

And if I was to explain the culprit's motivation to attack a wax figure to an Iraqi or Russian person, I might use such an analogy - under the condition that Lenin's / Saddam's image in Russia / Iraq is as bad as Hitler's in Germany. But when I try to explain this to US citizens, then I obviously have to use an example that they can relate to. Comparisons like "The relationship between nation A and foreign dictator A is analogous to the relationship between foreign nation B and foreign dictator B." won't leave you any wiser.

This isn't about Hitler's role as a dictator but about his role as a focal point of mutual hatred in Germany's postwar society and the commercialization of his image next to a historically charged site, so I'll stick to my analogy.

Or as one Berlin citizen dryly remarked: "Finally! An attack on Hitler that succeeded!"

Yeah, like I said. Germans have earned a Master's degree in self delusional PC self hatred hypocrisy. Most all of you followed him once, and much of Europe too. In fact, the very Reich Chancellery showing on your map as the Führer bunker was once defended to the last by remnants of the Swedish and French Waffen-SS volunteers.

Go choke on it if you must. I prefer to recall history as it really was, and I don't care what people think.

Are you really that idiotic?

I don't believe anyone posting on this forum was alive by even a close margin during World War 2. Get your ire focused in the right spot.

What stupidity.

A common misconception, mostly due to heavy influence of some anti-Stalinist pro-red quarters in the United States during much of the 20th century.

Lenin managed to kill off at least 5 million Russians/Ukrainians etc in his 6 year tenure and apart from Stalin or Hitler ("Socialism in one country", remember?) dreamt of actual Communist world conquest, since the Bolshevist "revolution" would in the mind of his times never survive if not spread to at least every corner of the globe that mattered.

Not bad for such a short reign, I must say.

I do agree that it is important to acknowledge historical accuracy. Glossing over the past only makes it more likely that we will end up repeating our mistakes, and that would not be in anyone's best interest. Though we ourselves are not charged with the crimes of the past, we are charged with safeguarding the future.

No, actually, your comment makes no sense at all. Am I to take it you prefer to change history as it suits you simply because we were not "alive" by then? Either that, or I might be forced to regard you as a total moron, which I prefer not to.

So please explain whatever ire inspired the meandering blabbery of your recent post.

Nobody's changing history, racist idiot. I don't care what you regard me as, it's clear you have nothing to offer this site but bigotry.

Go fuck yourself.
