Commie rats.

An interesting piece by Louis Nowra, the well respected australian playwright who Authored one of our texts last year, Cosi. via John Quiggin.
In part this is an answer to my Che Guevara question. I guess he was an arsehole after all. I think the reason why it is still seen as acceptable to have communist leaders portrayed without the stigma of a fascist leader is the same reason why many left liberals in the world support the UN, of course in practice it's a piece of shit but there are noble ideals behind them whereas for fascism there are no such ideals that would be seen as politically appropriate at the moment.

UPDATE: David McKnight has a very good answering piece.
