In their recent club promotion letters, they have featured the face of Joseph Stalin. This man is responsible for the deaths of thousands of Russian citizens, religious followers, and supporting the early development of the Third Reich. During times of starvation, Joseph Stalin has promoted cannibalism as an act of survival.

The creator of this promotional letter must find this poor soul's suffering pretty damn hip, huh?

If you have any respect for all living things of this Earth, then you will understand that promotion of this night using the portrayals of such figures IS NOT TOLERABLE.

Promoters of KGB night must tell their benefactors to seize distribution of this club night's letter. If they continue using this to promote their club, we will establish an opposition.

I'm sorry if you like the night, but this letter is unacceptable and disrespectful of the victims of communism.

I have not seen the new ads... that image link is broken. I do think that using Stalin is lame.

I have recently been informed that the reason they were using a picture of Stalin in their promotional letter was as a statement against the earlier club.

That must be pretty personal though. The good thing is that they are not using him to promote their new night.

guess we'd better tell all those 80's [and beyond] neo-folk, industrial and darkwave bands to quit using fascist imagery also.

i mean, while we're at it.

Everyone is afraid of symbols.

Symbols that get me all riled up are team mascots such as the cleveland indians, washington redskins, atlanta braves, and kansas city chiefs. then again maybe i should be honored? lol oh well, what can you do?

Those mascots ain't shit bro, the sole (no pun intended) fact that Nike made a special shoe exclusively for native Americans is enough honor to last a lifetime!!!

Oh how I could go on about this subject. Lets just say I have a bunch of backgrounds. I will stay neutral...for no...until I release some material.
