Archive for January 19th, 2018

When I shared some anti-communism humor on January 14, I figured that it would be quite some time before I had another opportunity to mock that evil ideology.

But that column triggered a bunch of messages, with friends and acquaintances sending me new material.

I figured that was a sign of interest in the topic, so let’s once again have a few laughs.

We’ll start with a couple of Wendy’s commercials. I actually remember the first one from my younger days and it is definitely my favorite because of the (very accurate) way it portrays that totalitarian ideology.

I hope you enjoy the Soviet fashion show as much as I did.

Here’s another commercial from Wendy’s. I don’t remember seeing it on TV.

I don’t think it’s quite as clever as the fashion show, but it still makes fun of how the system tried to control people and deny freedom.

Now let’s check out a couple of images that showed up in my inbox.

This first one is the sarcastic version of a 2013 column that included a poster mocking people who claim that communism has never been tried.

This final image is my favorite.

It’s a more clever version of an image I shared back in 2014 comparing night-time views of North Korea and South Korea.

Let’s close on a serious note. North Korea is a horrifically backwards and evil place.

So while the image is amusing, let’s not forget (as captured by these two short videos) that it actually represents utter misery and unimaginable agony for millions of innocent people.

Something to keep in mind the next time you see some morally bankrupt jerk with a Che t-shirt.
