Why do college liberals always defend him as 'the good guy?'

Why do you like to build strawmen?

No one likes tankies.

Liberals means progressives in America.
>>3965691
Three basic reasons: He lost, so it's easy to romaticise him; Stalin is objectively evil, so his rival must be objectively good; and "global revolution" is a meme that appeals to infantile young minds more than "socialism in one country" does.
>>
>>3965747
In pop-political discussion, sure. But you're on a humanities board. Go be a brainlet somewhere else if it's too much to handle.

No, fuck off. & Humanities was a fucking mistake.

He never had the time or authority to do anything horrifically evil.
>>
>>3965936
Lmao
>>
>>3965936
>>
>>3965691
Because most of his memery came in exile where he supported more democratic ideals mostly just to piss Stalin off, he had no problem gunning down people expressing those exact ideas at Kronstadt 20 years earlier
>>
>>3965691
Nobody does.
A good question is why do so many people on /his/ defend Hitler as the good guy?
>>
>>3965936
KRONSTADT
Seriously just based on his proposed policies for the workers, Trotsky would've been certainly an even worse tyrant thann Stalin was.
>>
>>3966323
>Nobody does.
So you've never been to college then?
>>
>>3966516
My uni is filled with progressive liberals who find both nationalists and radical marxists "scary".
>>
>>3965954
>>3966193
>>3966493
Kronstadt and the Green armies had it coming
the Red Army never actually gassed peasants, but they should have
>>
>>3966537
Any reason for the quotations around (((scary))) or are you just grammatically unsure and subversive?
>>
>>3966516
I have been to uni and the only one of hundreds of students I conversed with who unironically called himself a “commie,” still espoused to detesting all the major leaders of the Soviet Union (Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, etc), claiming they gave communism a bad rep.
So, nice try.
>>
>>3965691
I can't tell if this is actually a common thing or if it's an overblown stereotype to make a group of people look bad
>>
>>3966589
The latter
>>
>>3966589
This, it reminds me of the che guevara shirts, people wearing them likely don't know shit about che at all, people see commies where they don't exist
>>
>>3966493
>KRONSTADT
Never studied Russian history before but this seems like the kind of thing people should know about. In the west, the Bolsheviks and Trotsky specifically always get treated like peace loving revolutionaries that used violence as a last resort. Not surprised the pro-communist education system has tried to cover this kind of stuff up desu.
>>
>>3965747
Progressives still aren't communists, and most don't defend them.
>>
>>3965691
because college liberals are really really stupid people and they do everything for fashion and virtue signaling anyway
>>
He was more fanatically revolutionary than Stalin. Like he actually wanted to destroy the concept of family, spread the Revolution to Europe and was an actual feminist just to put some examples.
>>

Where do you think you are?

Have you?

literally never happened

lolno, westerners are happy if they can name any European communist leader outside of Lenin, Stalin and Gorbachev.
>>
>>3967049
More of the /leftypol/ victim narrative I see
>>
>>3967076
East Euro here, not sure if Greece counts as western but the amount of trotskyists, anarchists, marxists and other communist subhumans I met in Greece was unbelievable. They also have one of the most resourceful commie parties in Europe with their own TV network included in regular cable packages and everything, and they're organizing strikes like every week. I never felt the need to get the fuck out of a place ASAP as when I was in Greece.

>>3966583
He used quotation marks because he was quoting the progressive liberals at his uni.

Learn to read.
>>
>>3966584

That is not true.
>>
>>3967096
In this context, Greeks should count as Eastern because they actually have some experience with communists.
>>
>>3967096
btw resourceful means "smart/capable" not "having resources/rich"
>>
>>3967150
Whatever.

Well, he kinda wasn't. In 1918 Russian rabbis cursed the Bolshevik Jews and removed them from Jewish community.

irrelevent to the fact that leftypol outright discusses shilling on /his/ and the fact that its painfully obvious when you do.

Doesn't his alone have greater traffic than the leftypol meme?
>>
>>3967322
And 4/pol/ has far greater traffic than 8/pol/ yet it's 8/pol/ doing all the work.
