The latest from KGB Mike Lawlor? Nothing new in the collectivist propaganda universe. Seems like I've seen that logo somewhere before.

CT citizen disarmament weenies are all aflutter over the latest effort at collectivist propaganda: Connecticut Governor Applauds Anti-Gun Sculpture Made From Shredded Firearms
But you know what? As an ex-communist, that shaking hands logo looked pretty familiar to me. Here's the one made famous by the Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands, which Wikipedia tells us:
The Socialist Unity Party of Germany (German: Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands, SED) was the governing Marxist–Leninist political party of the German Democratic Republic from its formation in 1946 until it was dissolved after the Peaceful Revolution in 1989.
So, there's apparently nothing new in the collectivist propaganda universe. I wonder if Malloy's anti-gun czar KGB Mike Lawlor had any input on the design?
The irony of this is delicious. Using the logo of the communist party that made the name Stasi feared throughout Europe. It really was the communist equivalent of the Gestapo. Oh, yeah. Delicious and oh so fitting.
LATER: And a reader prompts me to recall this Newsweek cover --

Time Magazine's "we are all socialists now" issue used it too.

No question that your communist days helped to uniquely qualify you to recognize and reveal the devices of today's enemy.

God chose the Pharisee Saul for a reason, too. The Apostle Paul had firsthand knowledge of the enemy within. Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, he exposed their hypocrisy for all the world to see.

Keep up the good fight,

The lack of understanding embodied in these fools who desecrate things held dear is monumental and their downfall.

"To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods."

It gets ever more embarrassing to live in Connecticut...

Let's hope we can turn the tide come November

Nothing new under the sun, and nothing that cant be remedied by the proper application of explosives (provided of course that noncombatants are kept clear).

It looks like you hit the nail on the head Mike. :-)

Can heroic soviet statuary be far behind?

I believe the phrase is "Schadenfreudelicious" when this is made public to a wider audience and backfires.
