The Daily Mail has instructed its readers to avoid the film, The Death of Stalin.
In an editorial piece the Mail said, “This film is not funny. It is little more than an attack, by the liberal metropolitan elite on a great patriot.
“Joseph Stalin was a deeply intellectual man who was also a published poet by 1917. Go to any creative writing course and it is filled with frustrated members of the liberal metropolitan elite. Their frustration is expressed in this deeply unfunny attack on a man who was a great patriot.”
The Mail then goes on to say that in Russia’s hour of need, during the great patriotic war, Stalin was there to lead his country. “Who would you rather have leading you in a time of war?
A namby pamby, liberal do-gooder who would run away from the enemy or a man of steel? Let’s face it, the only man of steel the lib-tards have heard of is in comic books.”
Many critics of the papers stance have pointed to the inhumanity and lack of basic human rites associated with the Stalinist regime. It has been suggested that this may be something the paper shouldn’t support.
The paper countered this saying, “People are fed up with human rites. It’s just an excuse for lawyers to make money from tax payers whilst allowing terrorists to walk the streets unfettered. If Stalin were in charge there would be less terrorism. Stalin understood the dangers of human rites.”
This isn’t the first time this week a national newspaper has caused controversy. The Sunday Express was forced to admit that its article entitled, “Himmler; monster or visionary socialist?” may also have missed the bullseye in terms of facts.
The writer of that piece has met criticism of that piece by saying, “Himmler was obviously a socialist. He lifted society up by eradicating poverty. He was also a member of the National Socialist Party who believed in strong centralised Government. That’s definitely socialism because it says Socialist in the name, dummy.
“If our readers don’t heed the lesson and keep voting Tory they’ll get Corbyn and socialism.”
