i've posted the fate of a few American Communists over the years, people like Emma Goldman and Lee Harvey Oswald, ...people who think Communism is the greatest thing since sliced bread , until they actually get to Russia and see what the reality is.
i stumbled across this the other day.
The Purge of 1937
A number of senior KPD leaders in exile were caught up in Joseph Stalin's Great Purge of 1937-38 and executed, among them Eberlein, Heinz Neumann, Hermann Remmele, Fritz Schulte and Hermann Schubert, or sent to the GULAG, like Margarete Buber-Neumann. Still others, like Gustav von Wangenheim and Erich Mielke, denounced their fellow exiles to the NKVD. Willi Münzenberg, the KPD's propaganda chief, was murdered in mysterious circumstances in France in 1940. The NKVD is believed to have been responsible.
these people fought for Communism in Germany, then when they are exiled, the same system and people they are fighting for , kill them.
is there any other clear defenition of stupid?
