Russian Communists: Latest Indy Movie Is Historically Inaccurate

Pen Hysterical Letter That Cannot Be Improved Upon By Blogger

I shit you not.

The party’s central committee called Steven Spielberg’s film an attempt to “slander Soviet Communists” and poison the young against them. It called Ford and Blanchett “capitalist puppets”.

“Our moviegoers are teenagers who are unaware of what happened in 1957,” said Sergei Malinkovich, the chief of the St Petersburg Communist Party chief. “They will go to the cinema and will be sure that in 1957 we made trouble for the United States and almost started a nuclear war. It’s rubbish.”

Party members were equally scathing in comments posted on its website. Andrei Gindos said: “Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett are second-rate actors serving as the running dogs of the CIA. We need to deprive these people of the right to enter the country. And then finally we will defeat Moose and Squirrel! Mwa ha ha haa.”

I might have tampered with that last bit.

Read the whole thing. The letter conjures up the very caricature of old-timey Soviet propagandists. They threaten to beat the actors if they visit the USSR Russia.

Seriously, though. Blanchett and Ford...'running dogs of the CIA?'

I love the wording and the notion. I slurp it up. Let us all dip our balls into this concept.

The article goes on to allow some Australian chickie archaeologist to get all red and puffy about Indiana Jones' archaeological technique and ideology. She impeaches the “imperialist assumption that artefacts [sic] in far-flung parts of the world needed ‘protection’ supplied by the West”.

Proving that PC anti-Western programming has so infected Western academia that they no longer recognize the merits of the tradition they have casually inherited or what immense good it has done in 'far-flung parts of the world.'

And that for the Left, all entertainment is propaganda, and must be kept on-message.
