Okay, I am about to reach my first 1000 followers and I thought it would be nice to give away some cool soviet related things.
YOU WILL WIN
A Soviet war medal. (You will be asked to pick one when chosen.)
A Soviet Ushanka.
A portrait of Lenin. (The photo will be folded to make it easier to send.)
A collection of Soviet coins. (Also with a 1941 Nazi Germany coin.)
Some Soviet badges. (including a plain red one with simply a hammer and sickle.)
A flag of the USSR. (If I am able to, I will allow the winner to choose a flag from a Soviet Republic of their choice.)
In order to win all you have to do is reblog this, it’s that easy! But if you can follow, that would be appreciated.
This giveaway will end September 2, 2013. The anniversary day when Ho Chi Minh proclaimed the independence of Vietnam and the establishment of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.
The winner will be chosen at random so the more times you reblog, the better.
I will send to anywhere in Europe, USA and South America.
If you need to see photos of said prizes, just send an ask and I will do my best.
Good luck, Comrades!!
My native American headress came ^.^ it has these lovely little leather discs on the sides and also little fox tails hanging down.
This is actually exactly what I needed after a horrid day at work and then being an emotional drunk all evening haha
everyone who is reblogging this hating on this girl needs to calm the FUCK down. Saying that she can’t wear this because she’s white is like saying that an african american can’t wear sophisticated dress because they’re black. Shut the fuck up and grow the fuck up. Nearly everything we have today is culturally diverse. Get with the fuckin’ times.
You don’t get it.
Continue failing to understand.
So… Black women… Can’t be sophisticated or wear “sophisticated dresses”? Are you trying to be racist or does it just come naturally?
While I agree that the US has not yet become a full blown fascist state, I think your commentary severally understates how far we have gone in that direction.
The line between the “private” and “public” sectors as are establishment refers to them…
It’s hard to work with a definition of fascism based solely on history because the examples of governments most widely regarded as ‘fascist’ (Germany, Italy, Spain, possibly Japan) were so different from each other. Fascism has never been a consistent ideology, even within individual countries it’s hard to make out a definitive strain of fascist thought. Look at Italy, they were monarchists, they were republicans, they were syndicalists, they were capitalists. It’s like Mussolini said, “fascism is 100% reaction”.
I’d almost say that calling the present system in the US fascist gives fascism credit where it isn’t due. The US system is far more stable and better equipt to sustain itself than any fascist one has been. How long did the longest fascist state last? As far as the ruling class were concerned, fascism was a quick means to an end - if Hitler hadn’t been so successful in gaining support from the working class the bourgoisie would have quitely deposed him in 1935, with a mansion and a title and the honour of being remembered as the man who saved Germany.
In my view, fascism is just what liberal capitalism looks like when it’s in crisis, preferably with a war economy. It is always the bourgeoisie’s last resort and will never leave their playbook. Even when there is no crisis, the ruling class will always wisely pander to a small fascist movement, willing to do their dirty work when the traditional methods fail.
This is why the fight against fascism is not a ‘single issue’ It’s one important front in the fight for working class self emancipation.
“But?!?! I Can’t Be Racist Because…” [SHORT FILM]
“But?!?! I Can’t Be Racist Because is the first short film brought to you by theliberatedzonetv to commemorate the 47th anniversary since Malcolm X’s assassination.
“But?!?! We Can’t Be Racist Because…” touches on the issues in a day-to-day and global context of white supremacy in order to try to open up the in-depth discussion and understanding that we need so desperately.
Is racism a thing of the past?
Are white people victims of racism too?
Do you feel uncomfortable/awkward when white people emulate Black culture?
Does Black culture ‘belong’ to everyone?
Does suffering in Africa have nothing to do with people living in Europe?
Are YOU aware of how you fit into the white supremacist structure enforced by imperialism?
CAN WE SPEAK OPENLY AND HONESTLY ABOUT RACISM?

Submitted by K., who says, “I thought in light of all the anti-birth control shit that’s been floating around, you would appreciate this. BTW, i know this person is conservative, making his post even funnier.”
Yup, why would anyone support policies that would increase potentially unwanted pregnancies? OH WAIT…
Oh man. They can tell women what contraception they can’t use, but when it is aimed at men, it’s outrageous!
From Gary Kamiya:
If in the year 2000 the U.S. president had told the American people that the government would soon begin using robot planes to track people, including U.S. citizens, all over the world, and would reserve to itself the right to detain and kill them…
I need more oc. but typing takes effort. hmm
