Season’s Greetings from the godless Bolshevik scum:
Christmas time can be so depressing. It brings out some of the worst features of capitalism and rubs them in our faces. . . .
Advertisements spur on feelings of guilt if you don’t buy enough of the right kinds of consumer products for people you love. Creative financing is offered so that lenders can make even more profit. And it is an environmental disaster … more plastic, cardboard and packaging is produced, carted about, and dumped into landfills, vacant lots, and incinerators at Christmas time than at any other time of the year. . . .
If you want to laugh, read the whole thing, which hijacks the Nativity story into a Marxist propaganda tale about the proletarian struggle against bourgeois imperialism.
UPDATE: Adam Baldwin — the actor from Full Metal Jacket, Firefly and NBC’s Chuck — sent me a Tweet calling attention to the CPUSA’s 2009 formation of “a new Religion Commission to strengthen its work among religious people and organizations.” As Baldwin says, this is comedy “gold,” because the chairman of the commission felt obliged to make this admission:
The Bolsheviks adopted an official atheist position, and for many years waged a struggle against organized religion.
To put it rather mildly. One cannot be a believing Christian and also be a Marxist-Leninist. So who did the CPUSA choose to head its Religion Commission? An Episcopalian.
That there’s funny, I don’t care who you are.
