Stand Up, Damned of the Earth

Michael Ramirez, 10/19/11:
Ramirez seems to be insinuating that the folks who toppled the Soviet Union back in '89 were anti-capitalist, anti-American Commies.

And, to be honest, they probably were, given that particular historical moment and the political makeup of the USSR.

What on earth that has to do with anything going on at the moment is a mystery; surely Ramirez isn't trying to equate Wall Street -- which hasn't fallen, by the wall, and looks exceptionally healthy -- with Gorbachev's USSR?
