    A Bust Of Josef Stalin Opened In Bedford, Virginia, USA

    BEDFORD -- A controversial bust of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin has been placed at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, just in time for Sunday's ceremony marking the anniversary of the 1944 invasion of Normandy.

    However, the placement of the bronze sculpture has not ended the debate over whether Stalin deserves a place at the memorial among other architects of the Allied victory in World War II. Other busts at the memorial include U.S. Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman, and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
    The bust sits atop a pedestal on the eastern edge of the memorial. Sunday will mark the first time Stalin's image will be a part of the annual ceremony commemorating the June 6, 1944, Allied invasion of France to reclaim Europe from Adolf Hitler (scheduled to speak at the 11 a.m. ceremony are Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Tammy Duckworth, assistant secretary for public and intergovernmental affairs in the Department of Veterans Affairs).

    "The Stalin bust dishonors all veterans who are remembered at the memorial and all veterans who have served in the armed forces of the United States and our Allies," said Bedford County resident and veteran James Morrison, who has worked as a volunteer at the memorial. "Stalin was a reviled dictator, responsible for the deaths of millions."

    Wow. How low could you really go? What a spit in the face to any U.S. soldier who gave their life up on D-Day. The Communist Party is and will always be the enemy of the U.S.A and the White Race. And to place one of its figureheads in a memorial dedicated to our fallen heroes is sick and ironic. Looks like the Bolsheviks won after all

    So the Western world, the USA in particular, fought against the scourge of Communism for almost the whole of the 20th century, only to finish up by honouring its most brutal dictator

    This is almost surreal!!! Talk about slapping your own citizens in the face, and Joe McCarthy must be spinning in his grave at 78 revs per second right now

    It could have been worse, they could have added Martin Luther King Jnr or Mandela. No doubt these will be appearing soon enough........

    At least Stalin was a strong leader if a bit bloodthirsty.

    Again another reason why the American citizens are angry and disgruntled at our government. I view it as slow and ever constricting propaganda to destroy our identity. In the past I have stated that you train oxen slowly by just adding a little weight at a time until they don't even know they are trained. I ask my fellow Germanic Americans are we better than oxen?

    I did not know this " little " piece of news until today. Now I'm pissed not only about the boldness these criminals are forcing their treason on us. But also that very few are standing in their way as they change our country right before our eyes. I was never that big of a fan of GW Bush, but I wonder if they would do something like that if he was still president. Further more I know that this would not happen if the someone like Reagan was in office( he really hated stalinism).

    Know I ask what are we going to do about it ? Are we just going to sit and post on the Internet or are we going to at least write letters( you know those pieces of paper we used before the Internet ) to show our disapproval or to show our support for those few who are protesting this? Are we going to find out who's idea this really was or are we just going to accept defeat ? I myself am at least going to write letters or several letters and at least let my voice be heard. We have to face these cowards sometime anyway and once we face them they will expose who they are and why they do the things they do. Also you will notice how quickly they back down when confronted as they really are cowards and so few in number.

    OK, I have vented enough, but I am still going to write letters and contact the VFW and American Legion and ask them why they are not protesting this shame.

    If I lived there I'd use that bust as my personal pissing ground, hey what greater satisfaction can there be than pissing on the face of Stalin

    In all seriousness though whatever your political beliefs are, someone responsible for the deaths of millions should never be given respect or admiration.

    It is kind of funny (ironic, not ha ha) that the man killed more people than Hitler's regime and he is still admired as a "leader". Maybe the towns people in Bedford will see fit to build a monument to Mao as well. Awesome.

    I think it's quite fitting actually. To not include him is to deny reality.







    Our unwarranted participation in the European theater has had many grave consequences which may well lead to our downfall, and the inclusion of Stalin's bust serves as a sobering reminder of this.

    Yes, he did play a part in WWII, but why should he be honored at a D-day memorial ? Was he there, did he organize any troop movements, did he take part in the planning, were there any russian troops at Normandy?

    I do understand the fact the he is a historical figure. The question remains should he be honored with a bust at a D-day memorial or even honored at all. I think his conduct at the late stages of the war should also play a factor in whether he should be hero or a villain.

    But the fact is at that time we were in bed with him, and our invasion of Normandy led to our meeting at the Elbe with Soviet forces in April 1945:



    Not only that, but "D-Day" is used as an annual propaganda event to celebrate the triumph of basically everything that is wrong in our societies, so who cares if they include Stalin? His inclusion might actually cause some people to question what we were really fighting for and whether the war against Germany was worth it.

    The blame-America-for-everything crowd are a bunch of jokers, but we really should have stuck with America First.
