I'm pretty sure they're foreign. Or voted for Obama. Either way, they're communists.

George Washington had 9 inches over Kim; the Lincoln/Stalin match up was no better. Of course they were going to dominate. Still need to find a way to shut down Khrushchev outside the 3-point line, though.

Don't look at Obama. Putin was clowning him beyond the arc when the teams went to their benches in garbage time.

When I see Washington and Lincoln, I think democracy rather than capitalism.

Why not? Lincoln already kicked Genghis Khan's ass, so Uncle Joe shouldn't be a problem.

No way, his idea of a physical game is touch football.  You need someone that can get in there and mix it up.  Maybe Teddy.

I get that North Korea is kinda doing their own thing now, but Stalin? Are you doing the "Communist Party isn't really Communist" thing?

Abe "Land Grant" Lincoln and George "Pay Your Taxes or I'll Send Secretary Hamilton to Your House with a Small Army" Washington would be considered totalitarian socialists by today's political standards.

Stalin was a Stalinist. So is the North Korean regime.

It's what happens when you get off on the wrong exit on your way to communism.

There's always Andrew Jackson.  Nikita may get a shot on him, but Jackson has a killer rebound.

Yes but Stalin still claimed the mantle of the Communist Party, whereas the North Korean ruling party calls itself the "Korean Workers Party" and officially subscribes to Kim Il-Sung's juche philosophy instead of Marxism-Leninism.

One might expect that had Karl Marx himself taken over (or was elected to lead) a government, he might have had to pursue different policies than what he advocated for in the Communist Manifesto, because reality still dictates what you actually do.

As does Xi Jinping. Claiming to be communist doesn't make you communist.

I can claim the mantle of the last living heir to the throne of the Mayans.  Doesn't make it true.

And the first question is for you, Karl Marx. The Hammers - The Hammers is the nickname of what English football team? 'The Hammers? (shot of Karl Marx furrowing his brow- obviously he hasn't a clue) No? Well bad luck there, Karl. So we'll go onto you Che. Che Guevara - Coventry City last won the FA Cup in what year? (cut to Che looking equally dumbfounded) No? I'll throw it open. Coventry City last won the FA Cup in what year? (they all look blank) No? Well, I'm not surprised you didn't get that. It was in fact a trick question. Coventry City have never won the FA Cup.

A number of the smaller religious groups in the U.S. such as Bruderhof Communities, United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, and many more.

Adhering to communist ideology. Julius Martov and Leon Trotsky (before he sold out).

HA. I live in the middle of a giant Bruderhof community. They're the most capitalist sons-of-anabapstists I've ever seen. They buy and sell everything. Except soap.

Fark.com: not-news so fresh, it has to pass through reddit's /r/forhire and then onto the front page via /r/pics upvotes, then through the digestive tract of Deadspin, before it's served up warm for you.

What happened to this site?
