We now know that in East Germany, up until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, political prisoners under control of the Stasi, the secret police, were being forced to make furniture for IKEA, the Swedish furniture company.No communist regime is too vile for leftists to deal with. And E. German was one of the most vile.
Mention Franco or Pinochet to a leftist, though, and they'll spit nails and sparks. Men who actually fought to win against communist takeovers of their countries are true 20th-century monsters to the left. Pinochet even survived a communist ambush. Apparently, after the communist filth targeted his country, he was just supposed lie down like a whipped dog and surrender.
Let's see. Where was I? Oh, yes. IKEA. Quality furniture at prices that can't be beat.
