'Member when the New York Times denied the Holodomor and shilled for Stalinism? I 'member.

one of the first Western Holodomor deniers was Walter Duranty, the winner of the 1932 Pulitzer prize in journalism in the category of correspondence, for his dispatches on Soviet Union and the working out of the Five Year Plan.While the famine was raging, he wrote in the pages of The New York Times that "any report of a famine in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda", and that "there is no actual starvation or deaths from starvation, but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial_of_the_Holodomor

You don't have the moral high ground.

What the fuck does the New York Times have to do with your source being a convicted criminal banker?

And the famine was in the Ukraine, not Russia. Someone needs to edit the obvious right wing propaganda you have linked, since the author is quoted as talking about Russia, yet the page is about the Ukrainian Famine.

Okay, because genocide denial and shilling for a totalitarian regime is ethical. Makes sense. Shows the paragon of moral virtue that you are.

1 People often referred to the whole of the Soviet Union as 'Russia' 2 Ukraine is often referred to as 'Little Russia', one of the parts of the 'All-Russian nation'.

Okay, so Wikipedia is right-wing propaganda? Only proves my point about shitlibs shirking anything that disagrees with them as invalid.
