Actually Stalin was a Christian and even trained to become a priest, then used the methods of organised religion to oppress and murder his own people. He attacks the Church as it was a threat to his power but in WWII then supported and promoted Orthodox Christianity as motivation to fight the Germans. Even after the war Orthodox Christianity in the SU rapidly expanded again, with thousands of Churches reopening and as long as they didn't question the Communisty government they were left alone.

So yes, Stalin was a murderous arsehole of the highest order, but he was no committed atheist, so please get your facts right.

did you make this shit up yourself just now, or did you read this from some other idiot and decided to adopt as your "truth"?

You're free to research yourself Stalin's relationship with Christianity and the Church over his lifetime. (However I am surprised you wouldn't know this anyway) You can have you own opinion but you can't have your own facts I'm afraid.

Tell me ONE book that you read that talks about stalin's relationship with the Church. Just ONE.

I BET you didn't read a single biography on this bastard. My work on interpreting the archives has actually been used in writings of biographies and history books. You don't have to believe me, but you do have to read actual research to be able to write an opinion as stupid as the one you wrote. stalin's religious education had no influence on his rule. The church was actually used for spying purposes. Tens of thousands were murdered by the soviet regime from 1924 to 1941 for the crime preaching religion or taking kids to church. I personally interpreted hundreds of verdicts.

Stalin was a bastard, a total and utter bastard that much I agree on. However to say his religious education had no affect on him in later periods is pure wishful thinking to justify your opinion.

Neither this nor what the mozais-idiot said in comments is true. stalin was a brutal gangster in Georgia (the country). He met the commie revolutionaries in prison. When he got out he continued to be a gangster and murderer but he was even more brutal now because he was raising money and getting weapons for the revolutionaries. He was one of a number of notorious gangsters that were recruited in this way - and then became major players in the communist party.

No. Antifa are anarchists, and Stalin was super authoritarian.

Stalin never, ever, ever once in his life tried to win a democratic election.

He rose to power as a party bureaucrat in a one-party state. He didn't run on promising equality: he ran on promising rapid industrialization. Private industry had already been taken over by Lenin.

You can't just take what you hate about your least favorite politician today, cross out the words Bernie Sanders, and write Joseph Stalin's name in its place. Doesn't work that way.

Never won an election. That must be the liberal revisionist version of history. In November 1901, he was elected to the Tiflis Committee of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (RSDLP), a Marxist party founded in 1898.[53] In November 1905, the Georgian Bolsheviks elected Stalin as one of their delegates to a Bolshevik conference in Saint Petersburg.[84]

Literally none of those elections mattered in the "rose to power" sense. The Bolsheviks didn't HAVE any power until 1917. They may have had internal elections for organisational purposes but that is not what the meme was getting at AT ALL and you know it.

"Stalin never, ever, ever once in his life tried to win a democratic election."

"Oh, what about these elections he ran in and won...?"

"NEVER YOU MIND THAT! Pay NO attention to the man behind the curtain!!!"

Cute.

I think you're speaking in English because I recognize some of the words, but what on Earth does your question mean?
