I don't get how tankies seem to think that "The Hungarian revolt in 1956 was a communist revolt" is somehow US state department propaganda when the actual propaganda line is that it was an anti-communist revolt that shows the evils of communism.

@deathpigeon no, the propaganda is that the ussr was simultaneously "spoopy communism" and also "too evil even for real communists". in any case, "hungary 1956 was a worker's revolt" is mostly a trotskyist take. the reality is that it was hungarian nationalists and anti-soviet forces that sought UN support.
