"Have you ever stopped to think, comrades, why such a bitter hatred is expressed for Stalin, why the whole glorious period of the soviet people and it’s Party, when Stalin was at the head, is blackened so shamefully?
Don’t you see a logical connection between attacks and slanders against Stalin and songs of praise for the leaders of imperialism, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and others whom N. Khrushchev has called “reasonable men” who “enjoy the absolute trust of their people” who are “earnestly concerned with the preservation of peace”, the death of whom, as in the case of Kennedy he described as a “great loss for mankind” and proclaimed a day of mourning even for the communists?
Only a charlatan, a man without character could behave as N. Khrushchev has done towards Stalin, to whom, when he was alive, he used to sing the most rapturous praises, whom he used to call “great Lenins close friend and comrade in arms”, “friend of the people and beloved father”."
