A Dark Day in History

Today, for traditional conservatives and monarchists ranks with the execution of HM Charles I, and 14 July 1789 and the subsequent execution of HMCM Louis XVI. It is the anniversary of the Russian Revolution. I wish I could border this post in black as a sign of mourning.

Communism has slaughtered in the vicinity of 100,000,000 people since its achieving State Power in Russia.

From The Black Book of Communism, quoted in The Commentator:

USSR -- 20 million
China -- 65 million
Vietnam -- 1 million
North Korea -- 2 million
Cambodia -- 2 million
Eastern Europe -- 1 million
Latin America -- 150,000
Africa -- 1.7 million
Afghanistan -- 1.5 million
Communist movements, parties not in power -- 10,000
Included in the estimated 20,000,000 killed in the Soviet Union alone were at least 4.000.000 mostly Catholic Ukrainians in the artificially produced famine called the Holodomor.
Here is the first monument to the Holodomor in the world, in Sir Winston Churchill Square, Edmonton, AB.

And here is a link to the Wikipedia article, List of Holodomor Memorials and Monuments.

Below is an article from the Wall Street Journal, Communism's Bloody Century.

And this is the result!

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
