The Decemberists, the Indie rock band that opened for Barack Obama's Portland, Ore., rally on Sunday that drew an estimated 75,000, often opens its own shows with the National Anthem of the now-defunct Soviet Union, according to Wikipedia.

The only thing that still amazes me about the left are the number of them that don’t admit to being Marxists.
The same kind of terrorists who support Obama did this:
Never apologize for them.
Never appease them.
ohplease, ohplease, ohplease...may this happen on YouTube.
So what? The vast majority of the YouTube population is under 30. You think anyone under the age of 30 knows what the Soviet national anthem sounds like? You think anyone under the age of 30 can identify a national anthem of any country at all? Do you think they have any idea at all what the USSR was? It doesn’t matter, the sheep are being led to slaughter...
This could be a major embarassment for Osama, considering all his talk about talks with Russia and China, and Iran.
Well, like, um....okaaaaaaay....
It is a very stirring anthem, but I still favor the Czarist Imperial Anthem.
Will The Decemberists be touring the remaing 56 states? We would be more than happy to provide a warm welcome here in good ole Virginia.
They know that they would be defeated soundly in the political arena if they expose themselves in a way that the common voter understands.
That’s why they put a smiley face on their fascism/communism and sell it to the people in the guise of “caring” about them.
Now Defunct Soviet Union... Don’t tell Putin that!!!
I’m just amazed that Wikipedia thought these no-talent boobs deserve an entry in their on-line PC encyclopedia. How many other garage bands are in there?
Putin restored it as the Russian national anthem a few years ago. It’s a catchy tune, admittedly. But of course Barry Hussein would never dream of opening his rallies with the American national anthem - phony patriotism and all that.
So, I guess it's up to us old soldiers to educate them. This is not an impossible task.
Russia now uses the melody from the Soviet anthem, and plays the old one on VE day.
Apparently Obama doesn't know what it sounds like, either.
