An American Kulak

Lenin targeted the middle-class Soviet farmer first. Labeled the Kulak, this farmer was slightly different than the peasant farmer as he own a horse, or land, or both. 250 acres? You're a Kulak. Are you turning a profit at farming? You're a Kulak.

Three years after Lenin's takeover the Soviets suffered their first mass famine. Like all Soviet famines to follow, it had nothing to do with weather or other natural event. It had to do with big government. In this first famine, it was the removal of Kulaks from the farms. As you can guess, their success was what made them a target, but it was their productivity that could not be replaced.

Un-intended consequences always follow liberalism, and people either suffer or die. Always.

Here is another Bankrupting America video. She is a modern-day Kulak. No Checka (yet). No forced relocation (yet). Just oppressive policies directed at the Left's internal enemies. The makers, not the takers.


The Russian famine of 1921, also known as Povolzhye famine, which began in the early spring of that year, and lasted through 1922, was a severe famine that occurred in Bolshevik Russia. The famine, which killed an estimated 5 million, affected mostly the Volga-Ural region.

Do we really have to repeat the mistakes of the past just so libs don't have to admit their ideology is evil?
