I've tried to do some research, but I frankly don't want to read paragraphs and paragraphs of policies and their history.
I know CPUSA is important, but in what ways are the two parties different?
As I understand it, when CPUSA shifted to a more bourgeois-oriented program they kicked out the chapters that protested the change, and those chapters became PCUSA, but it would be nice to know a little more about this history.
What are the party's general stances on historical figures like Stalin or Mao, or modern figures like Xi or Putin?
I read on their site that they believe in political revolution, but I'm not sure if they say how they intend to bring about that revolution?
It would be interesting to know which ideologies are represented the most on Lemmygrad. Please vote to let us know.
If you selected "other", please write it in the comments.

Hello Dongistan, we apologize for unfairly removing your community.
We were alerted that members of this community were harassing and trolling GZD's moderators on Telegram, and we moved to remove your community in response to that. The person who alerted us to this failed to provide proof, however, then failed to write a report for a ban in their community. Without strong evidence of their claims, and with them forgoing transparency, we decided it would be best to restore this community and apologize for acting rashly.
Since restoring, we've uncovered evidence that *some* of your members are engaged in harassment of moderators and admins, and breaking our site-wide rules. Please rest assured that their infractions will not change the legitimacy of your community. As long as your members stay within our rules, we won't have to step in.
If you have questions on this matter we will try to answer them. But please understand we have busy lives outside of Lemmygrad, and we will not give our time to people who are only trying to waste it.
I've tested this out over concrete slabs and over nutrient-starved sand. As long as your bed of mulch and good growing material is thick enough you can grow just about anything. Though, even with the modified method where you add bagged dirt on top of the mulch, I found it difficult to grow anything with short roots.
I made this community before Russia's invasion of Ukraine as a place to post headlines and discuss the rising tensions. With the war in Ukraine slowing down, I feel it's a good time to open the community up to discussions about the other theatres NATO is pushing itself into.
Please feel free to post about the wide range of conflicts NATO's engaged in, and their subversive actions against global peace and the legal governments and hegemony of Russia and China.
In my opinion, it would suck to see Lemmygrad - a project I've been on for roughly 3 years - become nothing more than the "GenZedong backup", so to help the new refugees spread out and utilize more of Lemmygrad's communities, here are a few communities I'd like to draw attention to.
I'll start with [ACAB](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/acab) a community that I made for posting about police misconduct.
[Casual](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/casual) is a community where you can post anything you feel like, and have stress free conversations in the comments. [Comradeship](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/comradeship) is in the same vein and is more active. They're great places to meet comrades and get to know Lemmygrad's culture a little better, we pride ourselves on putting community first.
I wouldn't be able to give a comprehensive list of every community, so I'll only do four and close this off with [中国的最新发展 (sino)](https://lemmygrad.ml/c/zhong1guo2), Lemmygrad's equivalent to Sino. A perfect place to post about news in China, discuss Chinese culture or politics, etc.
I'd like users to post communities they'd like to highlight in the comments, as well.
If you've put in a membership application, please hang tight. it can take anywhere between a few seconds and a few hours for the admins to get to your application, y'all are flooding in so fast.
Your applications are read by real humans, thank you for your patience.

> >Officer April Rodgers and the CSPD put on an elaborate sting operation to bust several groups of leftists for a crime they manufactured. April was attempting to get me to participate in a straw purchase and god knows what else. Based off some other people I’ve talked to, I was not the only one who the CSPD targeted. It appears the goal was the create a firearms trafficking group from Colorado Springs to Denver in order to bust every leftist with firearm ties in both cities. Either that, or it was an attempt to pressure me into becoming an informant.
> >I believe it is very important to document and publicly share these types of COINTELPRO tactics whenever they pop up. I work a boring desk job and shoot guns with friends once every two weeks, yet I was specifically sought out and targeted. Be careful y’all, and remember if the vibes are off, leave. Last but not least, fuck CSPD. Over a third of the city of Colorado Springs’ budget goes to them so they can carry out failed political vendettas against anyone who dares not be a conservative christian.
Since the war started I've seen the Ukrainian flag no less than ten times a day, and almost every time (I'd say a solid 8/10 times) it's been linked to something that elicited anger in me. (horrible stuff Ukraine's military is doing, the Azov battalion, shitlibs with bad takes, etc.) and now every time I see the combination of blue and yellow I immediately get upset.
My quick google to try to understand this implies it's Pavlovian conditioning, and I have to agree with that. So, is anyone else getting this, or do I need a vacation from the internet?
I feel like I'm being smothered by Ukrainian footage when I try to find videos from the frontlines. This could, of course, be part of OpSec and I'll fully accept that. But being able to see what's going on, and not have it be over the shoulder of the side I'm rooting to lose would be - at the least - nice.
