We cannot doubt man's capacity of inhumanity to man.
Outrageous that the king of England, the czar's cousin and almost twin look alike, refused refuge to the czar and his family after the Bolshevik revolution.
People of the sleeping inclination cannot accept the violence being meted out on the world because they cannot fathom that such cruelties could be possible. They are. Look at history.
The Bolsheviks were inhuman thugs.
The intolerant leftists of today are rapidly heading that way.
Haven't watched the video yet but I wanted to share this from an article I just read on the murder of the Romanovs:
"Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn makes the point that those who describe the Bolshevik Revolution as the 'Russian Revolution' slander the victims. It was not a Russian Revolution; it was an anti-Russian Revolution. 'You must understand: the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred, they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you in America call the ‘Russian Revolution.’ It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality, is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators.'
I am in no way excusing the execution of the Romanovs. I am pointing out the context. This was at the tail end of WW1. I don't think it's possible to overestimate the carnage of WW1....it was like the whole of the European continent was laid waste. In Russia alone 2 million soldiers were killed, 3 million were injured and over a million civilians died of starvation and other war related causes.
As I say I am not excusing the barbarity.......only saying that it was a time of general barbarity, the scale of which we cannot comprehend.
Have you seen the photo of the Romanovs on the rooftop ? I bet they cried out -“who killed the Kennedy’s “ when after all- it was you and me...Potemkin House and Garden...(it’s getting late)
Thanks for linking this interesting documentary film. Presidents, Kings, Emperors, Czars and Supreme Soviets are all detestable peacocks. As for the Eastern Orthodox Church, I feel it's authorities have also earned their rightful place in the pantheon of cowards and hypocrites. Here in Brooklyn I can not forget the locked entrance doors to the darkened ecclesia on Holy Saturday, April 2020. There are no leaders where there are no individuals of strong conviction.
My mother had a huge “coffee table” book on the Royal Family of Russia (I have in storage). The art, jewelry, antiques, and the beautiful splendor of this family is breathtaking. What they endured and were victims of is seen throughout history.
Thank you Celia for sharing this. When I was in high school in 1967 I read the book “Nicholas and Alexandra - An Intimate Account of the Last of the Romanovs and The Fall of Imperial Russia” by Robert K Massie.
I found it in my local library in the small farming town I lived in in SoCA. That was my first introduction into the story of The Romanovs. The story fascinated me and over the past 55 years it has lingered in my memory. This short film brought it all back for me. I’m going to revisit the book. They were such a handsome and elegant family.
The Romanov family was not subservient to the West elites so they mobilized the Bolshevik Jews to remove the Romanov families.
When the orcs come for you, take five with you. The system can not sustain those numbers . Be the Orkin man., FFF/22BOH
They all have names, address, and routines.

Thank you Celia.
Is that why Tsar abdicated because the ppl were poor and he wasn’t? Is that why the Bolsheviks came to fruition? Why is there still a belief that Anastasia is still alive? Was Rasputin helping the enemy? I will finish watching. Did Rasputin have an affair with the Tsar’s wife? And Did Nicholas the son ever heal from hemophilia?
This man's wife was killed.... CURRENTLY. Let's discuss what's happening NOW:
Nicholas Romanov’s misrule was undergirded by grinding poverty for the vast majority of peasants, sadistic exploitation of Russia’s nascent working class, periodic pogroms unleashed against the Jews, and two avoidable & unnecessary wars that cost the lives of millions whilst revealing the utter rot that pervaded the Russian aristocracy. It is most regrettable that ‘Nicky’ wasn’t held accountable for his crimes against the Russian people and the captive peoples of his realm.
"Nicholas II Regarded Pogroms As Natural"
(Jewish Telegraphic Agency Mail Service)
"Czar Nicholas II regarded pogroms as a natural phenomenon. according to an article on the Czar by the publicist. Ernest Judet, appearing in 'L’Oeuvre.' M. Judet quotes a number of letters written by the Czar to his mother.
In one of the letters. written after the 1905 rising. he wrote: 'I do not believe that everything that is now going on in Russia is due to the Russian people. The labor strikes are organized by the Polish and Jewish engineers. The world accuses us of making pogroms. but I believe that the pogroms are a natural appearance. The Jews wish to dominate over Russia and over the Russian Czars. We defend ourselves. The Minister of the Interior, Trepov, is fighting well. He is doing a holy work. But the Minister Witte is courting the favor of the enemies of Russia, the Jews.'”
The video made me cry, but I thank you for sharing it. There is nothing wrong with feeling our feelings and facing the ugly side of human nature. We need to face it. There is a dark shadow that resides in everyone's psyche. We need to integrate and heal it.
I watched a video interview with Russell Brand and Gabor Mate yesterday from about four years ago. Dr. Mate talked about unresolved childhood trauma that plagues our society. It's so very pervasive, and why we have such a sick and dysfunctional society.
