Members of the Russian Communist party have called for the new Indiana Jones film to be banned in the country because they say it distorts history.Well, that's rich. This from people who used to erase actual people from photographs, among other sinister distortions of history.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, set during the Cold War, sees Harrison Ford's character battle Cate Blanchett's evil KGB agent.
St Petersburg Communist Party chief Sergei Malinkovich told the Reuters news agency it was "rubbish".
"Why should we agree to that sort of lie and let the West trick our youth?"
He said many Russian cinemagoers were teenagers who would be "completely unaware of what happened in 1957", when the film is set.
What could be more pathetic than being a communist today? They've got to be the most clueless, irrelevant people in the planet. They would be funny if they weren't so mindbottlingly stupid:
"It's rubbish... In 1957 the communists did not run with crystal skulls throughout the US."As always, blame it on the Jews.
The Associated Press news agency quoted Moscow Communist official Andrei Andreyev as saying: "It is very disturbing if talented directors want to provoke a new Cold War."
