Rasputin was a creepy cult leader who raped many women.

Wtf are they doing?
If there is one real-life story that resembles a fairy tale, it is the Bolshevik Revolution.

Clearly,. There is an indoctrination agenda
Lenin does mention Rasputin. He calls him a "monster"
Another time in 1917 to drag on the provisional government
This sounds familiar
Rasputin was selecting members of the cabinet and even the highest ministers.
Some members of the royal family were smarter than others...these people chose to stay away..hands off.
The Tsar purged his ministers worse than Stalin but they focus on Stalinist purges.
This feels dumb.
The Tsar's interior minister had imaginary conversations with spirit Rasputin.

The British ambassador called him "mentally deranged"
The Tsarina was a terrible human being.
The Tsarina criticized the peasants for wanting bread. She called it "hooliganism"

This was her "let them eat cake" moment.
Trotsky kinda always sucked.
This was Lenin in 1917 speaking about Rasputin and Romanov as nitwits.

Interesting to see the things that move.people:. Mass execution and slave labor (not a problem)

Me commenting on don't make false comparisons between USSR and Germany: Oh I must comment.
Why didn't you click on our links: Bykivnia Graves were mostly "found" during the Nazi occupation period by "Nazi Collaborators"

Kurapaty: They found a mass grave with 50 people, 100 people and another with 300 people.

That's vastly different than Nazis graves of 35k! ImageImage
In Toksovo, so far people have been able to find a mass grave of 20 people. Image

Babi Yar is a ravine in the outskirts of Kiev. In 1941, 34,000 jews were massacred in one of the many "genocide by bullets" in the Eastern Front.

On 19 September 1941, the German army with the help of the Einsatzgruppen entered Kiev as the Soviets were pushed out Image
This was the order issued by the Einsatzgruppen asking Jews to report to a street in Kiev and asking them to bring their valuables and jewels. Image
All the rumors you hear:
a)Soviets greeted the Nazis as liberators: Mostly false.
b)City dwellers are the collaborators! Image

It's the ideology. They insist the government is free and no one does systemic analysis to evaluate it.
16 weeks of the constitutional conventions, the founders said the constitution was ready. 39/42 had signed it.

George Mason refused to sign it because it did not have a bill of rights! Image
That wasn't an oversight. George Mason had proposed the bill of Rights beforehand and he got voted down 10-0. Image
