In His Own Words

Via Observador, uma discussão entre o fedorento(?) gato RAP e o pessoal do Acidental sobre as preferências políticas do humorista. Pessoalmente, estranho a atitude dos acidentais ao questionarem o direito à liberdade de expressão de um cidadão, mediático ou não! Mas, tal como no Observador, destaco o seguinte parágrafo do último post do gato (meus destaques):
"Como é possível continuar a ser comunista depois de todos os horrores praticados por comunistas em todo o mundo? Para mim, que sou um marxista não-leninista, é um argumento particularmente absurdo. Não vejo que haja qualquer nexo de coerência entre considerar que as críticas de Marx à sociedade capitalista são acertadas e aprovar o que fez Estaline. Do mesmo modo, não é verdade que é possível continuar a ser cristão depois de todos os horrores praticados por cristãos em todo o mundo? Ou é forçoso que quem segue a doutrina de Cristo se reveja em Torquemada?"

Caro RAPper, um pequeno(!) esclarecimento. Nas palavras do "mestre" (meu destaque):
"Let us consider the actual, worldly Jew -- not the Sabbath Jew, as Bauer does, but the everyday Jew. Let us not look for the secret of the Jew in his religion, but let us look for the secret of his religion in the real Jew. What is the secular basis of Judaism? Practical need, self-interest. What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money. Very well then! Emancipation from huckstering and money, consequently from practical, real Jewry, would be the self-emancipation of our time.... We recognize in Jewry, therefore, a general present-time-oriented anti-social element, an element which through historical development -- to which in this harmful respect the Jews have zealously contributed -- has been brought to its present high level, at which it must necessarily dissolve itself. In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Jewry"

Faz-me lembrar as palavras de outro germânico...

Outros exemplos (meus destaques):
"The purposeless massacres perpetrated since the June and October events, the tedious offering of sacrifices since February and March, the very cannibalism of the counterrevolution will convince the nations that there is only one way in which the murderous death agonies of the old society and the bloody birth throes of the new society can be shortened, simplified and concentrated, and that way is revolutionary terrorism.
[Karl Marx, 1848]

Rules of the Communist League (Art. 42): Removed and expelled members, like suspect individuals in general, are to be watched in the interest of the [Communist] League, and prevented from doing harm. Intrigues of such individuals are at once to be reported to the community concerned.
[Marx e outros, 1850]

It would perhaps be as well if things were to remain quiet for a few years yet, so that all this 1848 democracy has time to rot away.
[Karl Marx, 1851]

May the devil take these peoples movements, especially when they are "peaceful".
[Karl Marx, 1852]

Society is undergoing a silent revolution, which must be submitted to, and which takes no more notice of the human existences it breaks down than an earthquake regards the houses it subverts. The classes and the races, too weak to master the new conditions of life, must give way.
[Karl Marx, 1853]

The Scandinavians and the Germans have in this way found that they cannot base their respective national claims on the feudal laws of royal succession. They have had the even stronger experience that they, the Germans and the Scandinavians -- who both belong to one overall race -- will only pave the way for their hereditary enemy, the Slavs, if they fight with one-another rather than uniting.
[Karl Marx, 1853]"

Pois.... falam, falam, falam!
