I heard today that Stalin's bust is going up at the D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Va. That's right. Come this Veteran's Day they are putting up a memorial to this man of courage, leadership, and integrity.
I'm outraged. This guy was a mass murderer on the scale of Adolf Hitler!
When I heard this about the bust, I thought "no way." In Russia, they are tearing down monuments to Stalin and we're putting one up here.
I thought it was just a goof. But it's not.
You can read an interview with the artist who's sculpting the bust at The Washington Times. Here's another piece that appeared on a local central Virginia newscast not far from the D-Day Memorial: WSLS 10
Stalin was a very bad man. He was allied with Hitler and helped him start WWII, killed 10,000,000 of his own people, murdered 20,000 Polish doctors, professors, and officers, shipped millions more to Siberia (including 2,000,000 Poles who came under his control), and on and on.
This guy needs a bust at the National D-Day Memorial?
