Jesus H. Christ, since when did Stalin become synonymous with Marxism? We
can play lots of these sorts of games - since the U.S. was founded on
genocide and slavery, can we say these are synonymous with "liberalism"?
Oh, and just what was specifically racist about Stalin's purges? And when
Trotsky criticized Stalinism, was he doing so out of anti-Marxism?
