‘Destroyer of USSR’: CPI(M) Puducherry mocks late Gorbachev with Thanos meme

We dwell in an period the place to talk rudely about anybody is taken into account dangerous and to talk rudely of the useless is an absolute no-no. 

So, when Mikhail Gorbachev handed away, tributes poured in from the world over, together with from those that won’t agree together with his legacy and blame him for the disintegration of the Soviet Union.

Even Vladimir Putin, who visited the hospital after his demise and paid his final respects, dialled down the criticism, admitting he had a ‘big influence on world historical past’.

Nonetheless, one one that had no chill was the CPI(M) Puducherry’s social media handler.

After Gorbachev’s passing, the CPI(M) Puducherry unit shared a tweet captioned: “Mikhail Gorbachev, a traitor to socialism and the destroyer of the USSR, died on the age of 92.”


Together with the caption, it had three photos:

1) A cartoon of Gorbachev’s notorious Pizza Hut business

2) A chart of the 1991 Soviet Union referendum (probably the most well-known referendum pre-Brexit) which requested if the USSR must be preserved as a ‘renewed federation of equal sovereign republics’ through which the overwhelming majority had voted ‘Sure’.

3) A Thanos-themed Gorbachev meme which was a greater crossover than the Avengers.

For the uninitiated, the meme is predicated on Thanos’ transient journey to the world of the Soul Stone the place he meets a younger Gamora who asks him if it was worthit (killing her to get the Soul Stone).

Besides, Thanos is changed by Gorbachev and younger Gamora is Pizza Hut. The truth is, one’d want Derrida to deconstruct what was going by the admin’s head as he used a theme impressed by maybe probably the most capitalist organisation on earth to mock Gorbachev for ‘destroying socialism’.

In a world the place politics is essentially the artwork of the doable and few keep on with their ideologies, it’s heartening to see some proceed to endorse what they consider in.

The meme was broadly appreciated on social media with many, together with those that don’t vote for the Communist Get together.

Others felts that it was in ‘dangerous style’.



Apparently, neither the CPI(M)’s official Twitter deal with or outstanding leaders like Sitaram Yechury have tweeted to condole his demise.
