Indiana Jones pisses off Russian communists. In other news, there are still Russian communists.

Seems like the sad, sad vestiges of the revolutionary vanguard are none-too-happy about the new Indiana Jones movies, calling it 'anti-Soviet propaganda'. Communist party member Andrei "Still Backing the Wrong Horse" Gindos had this to say:

"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."

Oh man. Running dogs. I missed that kind of talk. Of course, there's something inherently funny about a dude complaining about being unfairly characterized in a Hollywood film, yet talking like a stereotype from a 1960s spy novel. I also find it curious that the Russian communists are taking exception to this film rather than, say, the majority of American films made between 1945 and 1989

Here's a few things for these communists to keep in mind:

  1. Nobody likes a sore loser.
  2. The complaints of a thoroughly discredited political ideology will get sympathy from exactly no one.
  3. When you lose a global political struggle, people will probably poke a little fun.
  4. Communism? Really? We're still doing that?

Chill out, guys. Seriously. Go buy a Coca-Cola and enjoy the silly fun of Indy IV, brought to by the wondrous workings of the free market.
