A nationalist once said -  
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.....

.....An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself......

...For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly....

Indebted to the very ideology of communism and not #China. Not only there in China, but one may find it in capitalist #US, #CzechRepublic, #Guinea and even in #Nepal as well, which was celebrated to be a #Hindu nation by the sanghis themselves in the quite recent past.
No one can find even a vestige of #SanghParivar when one seek for it outside India and that's the very reason why the global homosapiens could not get in to solidarity with it. Those can set aside their impression that communists can be targeted in the space of the current
tension. The 56 inch - gauged - chest will also be questioned and audaciously reprehended. The unparalleled and squeamish thing in between is all the neighbouring countries have now turned against us. It's not #Pinarayi Vijayan who visited china more than 6 times within such

While demanding #humanitarian aid from across the #globe, the #Palestinian Authority spent $2.1 billion to fund #Islamic #terrorism between 2011 and 2018.
Billions of #dollars in foreign aid have been unaccounted for – money that was supposed to go to #Palestinian citizens under the oppressive and #militant #jihadist government run by President Mahmoud Abbas and the #Islamic #terrorist group #Hamas

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
