Soviets Aren’t Fans of Indy

OK, the last comment in the excerpt below says it’s ‘anti-Soviet’ propaganda…well, duh. The Soviets are the bad guys, there’s nothing redeeming about them, so yes, you could say it’s anti-Soviet propaganda. The full article says that the Communist Party in Russia claims it’s anti-Russian, which the movie is not. These people just want something to complain about because they aren’t in control of their own country anymore (and good thing, too). Maybe next time, they should win a cold war and then they can make whatever movies they want to.

ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) –
Russian Communist Party
condemned the new “Indiana Jones” film on Friday as
crude, anti-Soviet propaganda that distorts history and called
for it to be banned from Russian screens.
“What galls is how together with America we defeated
Hitler, and how we sympathized when Bin Laden hit them. But
they go ahead and scare kids with Communists. These people have
no shame,” said Viktor Perov, a Communist Party member in
Russia‘s second city of St. Petersburg.
Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett (are) second-rate actors,
serving as the running dogs of the CIA. We need to deprive
these people of the right of entering the country,” said
another party member, Andrei Gindos.
Vladimir Mukhin, another member of the local Communist
Party, said in comments posted on the Internet site that he
would ask Russia’s Culture Ministry to ban the film for its
“anti-Soviet propaganda.”
