Is Donald Trump a copycat Stalin? Does he have the makings of a dangerous dictator?
Is Donald Trump the New Stalin? A bizarre question, it would seem. To most people, I believe, it wouldn’t even occur. To answer it, a few words first about Stalin. We can then return to Trump. Read More
This article will be of some academic interest to the Stalin watchers who frequent our site. It is intended as an aperitif or introduction to a far more controversial article to be published here tomorrow, entitled “Is Trump the New Stalin?”
Stalin with his daughter Svetlana. She was to deny that her father ever married a “Jewess” called “Rosa Kaganovich” and maintained that no such woman even existed. She would have been astonished to learn that her father was a “Jew” and would have laughed at anyone who made such an absurd claim. Read More
“This particular film was extremely important to me, and it felt almost like a mission. I wanted to bring knowledge about the famine genocide, the Holodomor, to the Western world, and that’s why I did it.” Ian Ihnatowycz, Bitter Harvest Producer
Bitter Harvest (2017) is a film inspired by the love and rediscovery of the writer Richard Bachynsky Hoover’s ethnic heritage. On a trip to the homeland of his Slavic ancestors he began to ruminate on how to capture the story of the Holodomor on film. With small acting parts in a variety of television series Bachynsky Hoover was learning the ropes of the film and entertainment industry. He went again to Kiev, investigating his family history.
It was 2004 and the Orange Revolution was in full swing — he saw first hand a Ukraine in the midst of upheaval. He learned that Western audiences had never seen the Holodomor dramatized on film — a dramatically different situation compared to that other genocide that has become a touchstone of Western Civilization and both a sword and a shield for Jewish and Israeli interests through endless promotion in the media.

“The forgotten Holocaust: How Stalin starved millions to death in a grotesque Marxist experiment which many in Russia STILL deny. A new book by Anne Applebaum, ‘Red Famine: Stalin’s War on the Ukraine’, leaves no doubt about Stalin’s responsibility.” — Daily Mail lead-in.
An article published yesterday in the Occidental Observer will help to reinforce the facts presented in the article below. See Bitter Harvest: A Brilliant Film on the Ukrainian Holodomor, by Bryan Christopher Sawyer. This will be published soon on the Darkmoon site as a companion piece to the article you are about to read. (JSM, Ed.)
WARNING: DISTURBING CONTENT
It was Stalin who personally signed the official orders to seize all the grain in Ukraine and starve 7-10 million people to death. The actual details of the genocide were left to Stalin’s closest friend and associate, the Jew Lazar Kaganovitch, often erroneously claimed to be Stalin’s brother-in-law. For graphic details of the 1932-1933 mass murder in Ukraine, see the 7-minute video at the end of this article.
The distinguished historian Robert Conquest, who died recently at the age of 98, is credited by many as being the first modern writer to reveal the full extent of the horrors of Stalin’s regime. His books had a powerful effect in tarnishing Stalin’s image by dragging into the harsh light of day the horrific crimes against humanity for which Stalin alone was responsible. Read More
I have a Russian correspondent who keeps writing me “angry” emails and ticking me off for my alleged “Russophobia” and my negative attitude toward Stalin. He is a Stalin apologist and does not like to hear a word of criticism against the Man of Steel. His name is Alexander M. (Is that him on the left? I don’t know. Could be.)
When I say “angry” emails, I am overstating the case. Alexander is an extremely well-informed Russian and all his emails exhibit an affable sense of humor as well as total sincerity. He has never antagonized me or been rude to me in any way. So I like him quite a lot. I can’t take offense at polite and good-humored antagonists who simply point out my errors.Read More
