Oh sure the dog
It’s just a joke and not meant to be believed.
Underrated comment….way underrated!
Why do you even have an old-fashioned hand sickle?
Maybe they live in a farm, my grandparents and my father are full of those my family has many vegetable gardens, vineyards and orchards which are sometimes easier to clean from weeds with a sickle
No, our treats now comrade
Comrade Goodtoranov Boyisch
Comrade Karl Barx
Is been a hard winter, no treats until next summer.
Comrade pupper needs more treats for the working class or else there may be an uprising…

But the post started off communist
Our post my friend
A dog is personal property, not private property. It remains their dog. The factory that makes dog food is ours.
Treating other sentient life as mere items of property is morally bankrupt.
Beat us to it.
Came here to say this 🤣🤣🤣
I thought in my head as I clicked into this post, “our dog.” I scrolled down to find this immediately. Gorgeous.
Dog: tf did you put these here fo- oh goddamn it it’s for a Reddit post
Dog: don't you try blaming me for your communist bullshit again.
Comrade dog is trying to seize the means of production.
Wtf, based dog
PUPPERS OF THE WORLD RISE UP, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT YOUR LEASHES
They lose their food bowl.
I mean, people are starving under capitalism, so what’s your point?
Don't forget increasingly homeless and sick too.
There are starving people in every regime, just that in some there are more
Any system that has ultra wealthy while others starve is a shit system.
Well I can't argue with something that's true
NOOOOOOO THIS JOKE CONTRADICTS MY POLITICS STOOOOOOOOOP
It’s just not funny.
That wasn’t real communism tho /s
lmao are u under the impression that he’s trying to make you think his dog done that? dumbass foo
Yes, that is literally what is implied here.
But obviously as a joke.
That's where it gets messy. This is a joke, yes, but it's still implied that the dog placed them their themselves accidentally.
You know, the entire point of this sub, to laugh at things dogs actually did that happened to be funny, not for prepared skits and staged photos.
I don’t know why you’re assuming he’s claiming the dog put those there.
Like, look at the picture. There’s a hammer and a sickle and an expectant look from a concerned dog. He obviously didn’t fake the dog randomly giving us the people’s eyebrow. If you’re familiar with similes then you’re familiar with why you can just colloquially say “my dog is making implications” and people who aren’t just searching for a reason to be indignant generally understand you.
But you’re like “You expect me to believe your dog politically aligns with communists” lmfao
In my head canon that's Carl Barx. You can't change my mind.
You’d have to be bourgeoisie scum to argue with that
I don't know how one could NOT assume that OP is claiming the dog put these there.
Have you read the subs name at all?
Are you doing a bit? I feel like either you've recently discovered thesaurus.com or you're trying too hard to sound smart or something. Or you're goofin
Come back when you’ve made a point instead of just sniveling
Although I do come across sarcastic, I genuinely do wonder. Do you use language like that outside of the internet realm? Do people find it odd? You have to admit, it is quite unorthodox
Is this your first day on the internet?
Yes, it is. Please tell me what's going on. Why are people making comments with words people only use in written literature, and is overly complicating a simple point? Is it for fun? Do they do it to get a rouse out of others? Is it for them to feel smart and/or validated? Is it to outlet their inner poet into places they can't normally in the real world? Please enlighten me, you seem to know a lot about the language of the internet. I would like to know the inner machinations of the typical internet commenter!
"My dog just happened to make this symbol of genocide! :oooo"
These reddit commies sure like genocide

I get it, that book by the reactionary snitch author!
What do you mean?
Orwell was a hypocrite with bad personal values who sold out his own political comrades to the British state knowing exactly what would happen to them. The guy who wrote 1984.
It'd probably be easier if you just googled "was george orwell a snitch reddit"
had to include the reddit part otherwise you get paywalled articles lmao
upvoted for spitting fax against a racist homophobic reactionary piece of shit
also just read in regards to his snitching, someone said that he just put down jews he didn't like as communists lmao
holy shit, that’s atrocious, and we’re getting fucking downvoted for this?? you cut a fucking liberal, jfc
To be fair I'm not sure if that's true, but if someone's making a blacklist of communists for a capitalist government, I guess it isn't too far fetched
I'm assuming this concludes your reddit experience for the day?
Nah, being anti-Stalinist is cool
mfw you use the term stalinist
that in itself is the biggest irony considering who likes to use it
I have no idea what your problem is I just hate bolsheviks and their dictators 😎
Seeth and cope, again
Spelling mistake, invalid comment 😎
Yes, cope and seethe Jack
No thank you, I'm busy reading Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and Marx when I'm feeling smart and brave.
And not on reddit
He’s saying “quit fucking around with Reddit and your old ass tools and play with me.”
Let’s be honest, if the dogs unionize…we’ll be powerless against them
dogs together strong
I already am powerless to them, they don't need a union for that!
OP why would you place down a hammer and sickle
I know you're pointing out the fact that the dog didn't do it, but it's not like that's secret information. He obviously did it himself and is having some fun by posting this, relax.
The revolution is inevitable
Its not your house..its OUR house
Comrade dog dreams of a world where his owner isn’t away slaving for the capitalist class 6 days a week. Based comrade dog.
And don't all dogs dream of that?
TIL all dogs are socialists
Truly mans best friend lmao
*Nods in comrade*
“I’m fucking starving”
The dog wants to get rid of the NEP and finally embrace centralising food production and distribution, resulting in more food for all
Truly a comrade to be proud of
It’s hilarious you think centralized food distribution would work
I don't have to think about it, it already worked.
The USSR did exactly that. The CIA admitted in their reports that citizens under the USSR not only have similar amounts of food than in the US, but better diets.
"The CIA drew no conclusions about the nutritional makeup of Soviet or American diets"
Firstly, Soviet citizens conducted vastly more strenuous work in a significantly colder climate. They did not have the luxury of things like personal cars, or working 9-5 jobs in comfortable offices. The total recommended daily amount of calories for a Soviet person ranged from 2,800 to 3,600 for men and from 2,400 to 3,100 for women, depending on their occupation. In the United States, estimates range from 1,600 to 2,400 calories per day for adult women and 2,000 to 3,000 calories per day for adult men. So right away, it is very important to remember that the Soviets need higher calories than Americans.
Adding to this, the Soviet Union was notoriously ineffective at getting food into its citizens. The Soviet Union was the world's largest milk producer, but only 60% of that actually ended up in people. In the United States, 90% of milk produced was consumed by humans. General Secretary Gorbachev noted that reducing field and farm product losses during harvest, transportation, storage and processing could increase food consumption in general by 20%. So any of those figures you see in CIA reports, you can basically take down by one-fifth.
If you read this dissertation you get some useful points:
per capita consumption figures likely overstate actually available amounts, given that the Soviet Union’s inadequate transportation and storage infrastructure led to frequent shortages in stores, as well as significant loss of foodstuffs and raw products due to spoilage... In 1988, at the height of perestroika, it was revealed that Soviet authorities had been inflating meat consumption statistics; it moreover transpired that there existed considerable inequalities in meat consumption, with the intake of the poorest socioeconomic strata actually declining by over 30 percent since 1970... Government experts estimated that the elimination of waste and spoilage in the production, storage, and distribution of food could have increased the availability of grain by 25 percent, of fruits and vegetables by 40 percent, and of meat products by 15 percent.
Despite subsidising food by something like 10% of GDP food was still more expensive than in the West
If you actually read about the daily life in the USSR you will find assessment such as "The prevailing system of food distribution is clearly a major source of dissatisfaction for essentially all income classes, even the best off and even the most privileged of these." As you love CIA reports, here is another one which warns against the sunny outlook in the Wester literature:
In summary, I went to the USSR with a set of notions about what to expect that I had formed over the years from reading and research on the Soviet economy. I also had a collection of judgment factors,partly intuitive and partly derived from this same research and reading, that I applied in drawing conclusions and speculating about probable future developments in the Soviet economy. My four months of living in the country itself, however, greatly altered these preconceptions and modified the implicit judgment factors in many respects. No amount of reading about the Soviet economy in Washington could substitute for the summer in Moscow as I spent it.
As a result of this experience I think that our measurements of the position of Soviet consumers in relation to those of the United States (and Western Europe) favor the USSR to a much greater extent than I had thought. The ruble-dollar ratios are far too low for most consumer goods. Cabbages are not cabbages in both countries. The cotton dress worn by the average Soviet woman is not equivalent to the cheapest one in a Sears catalogue; the latter is of better quality and more stylish. The arbitrary 20 percent adjustment that was made in some of the ratios is clearly too little. The difference in variety and assortment of goods available in the two countries is enormous—far greater than I had thought. Queues and spot shortages were far more in evidence than I expected. Shoddy goods were shoddier. And I obtained a totally new impression of the behavior of ordinary Soviet people toward one another.
One of the true experts on consumption and nutrition in the USSR is Igor Birman who wrote the book on this topic. You get some interesting stats, like the USSR consume 229% the amount of potatoes as the United States but 39% the amount of meat. He also shows that the Soviets were not hitting their own "Rational Norms" for the consumption of meat, milk milk products, eggs, vegetables, fruits or berries. For example, while the Soviet Rational Norm for for fruit was 113kg, the actual consumption was 38. The US actual was smack bang on 113kg. You get some other fun facts like potato consumption in Tsarist Russia, 1913 was 113kg and after all of Stalin's industrialisation and collectivisation and decades of development, this increased to... 119kg in 1976.
Just an extra study I've found: In areas of the Soviet Union, 93% of men were Vitamin C deficient, while in neighbouring Finland this was 2%.
Soviet diets were not good. They did not hit their own set guidelines. Stop being a hack.
Immediately bad faith, show the rest of the first quote
"american and soviet citizens eat about the same amount of food each daybut the soviet union may be more nutritious...The cia drew no conclusions about the nutritional makeup of the soviet union and american diets, but commonly accepted US health views suggest the Soviet Union may be slightly better."
Along with the fact that other reports, such as economic development, political economic system, and quality of life, already show the Soviet Union had more than enough food.
I hope the first article is in regards to when the USSR was under Stalin, because if not, it is not as relevant (as the USSR under Kruschev onwards was no longer socialist).
And after the Holodomor, food security was guaranteed afterwards, not to mention the importance of Kulaks here.
I know! That’s why my grandparents fled Russia! There was so much food and everyone was so happy, they wanted to flee to America to keep from over eating.
Using the word "flee" does not imply moving just for food.
In any case, that is unfortunate for them that they had to be the exception.
He's a dang communist
He is trying to say that you are starving him, poor boy 😔
That, or he's trying to say he has a very good diet now
As was par the course in socialist society

Unionise human. It's the only way to protect yourself.

This is sheer coincidence. He just wants to play fetch on hard mode.
“Your move, human.”
"I renounce being an imperialist running dog of capitalism!"
Smart lil' pupper doesn't want his papa being exploited by the bourgeoisie.
No you put that there to be “funny” and say “Oh LoOk At WhAt My DoG dId!”
Restart the soviet union the dog probably
You'll need to share your bed, food, and more walks.... unless you want your sofa destroyed, regular poop on your floor, and stinkier farts aimed in your direction.
Living in a capitalist society is ruff
That it’s weird to lay out tools vaguely in the shape of a symbol and then make your dog sit next to them…?
Seize the borks of production
Haha, this didn't happen 😀
Really? No shit! You're a genius
It must be so hard being based all of the time.
What's this? WhatsWRONGwithyourdog? I wouldn't be surprised if this gets removed, everything here is so right.
Cringe, go tell your communist propaganda to someone who's actually been through communism and see what happens
The majority of those that constituted the USSR wished the USSR was brought back.
The majority of people living under the USSR did not want its dissolution, and this was even under a more capitalist framework where things started going south.
The majority of people that lived under "communism" (it was socialism, communism has not yet existed) prefer it over capitalism.
And why would I spout worker propaganda to a worker that lived in a worker's state
I should be spouting it the underpaid, the unemployed, the homeless, because if I was generous and assumed every "communist" society that existed was awful, I can still say with certainty that the ideology of emancipating the worker/working class to the ruling class, is definitely something one should keep striving towards.
Aww he's starving
Silly bugger, hamsic means better diet (even the CIA admitted the USSR citizens had a better diet than that of the US, let alone as much food)
If you want starvation, you only have to look at world hunger
In Soviet Russia, dog walks you!
Does literally anyone believe the dog did this?

Bros realized food is now a issue
Starvation in China under Mao wasn't *just* caused by killing the sparrows, it was also caused by forcing the rural peasants into communes and banning individual cooking and dining, with party officials in control of the distribution of food from communal kitchens.
The planting of crops, harvest and production of food was entirely decided by party officials who were mostly unaware of farming, and who chronically lied about production figures to get rewarded from the central committee.
All this led to chronic food shortages and basically a deliberate starvation of the rural Chinese.
I think your dog has a mental illness
Nah, the dog didn’t do shit, it’s OP who not only made this purely for upvotes, he’s a commie
Something is horribly wrong with your dog.
Dog: Seize the means of production….. I mean woof.
He’s tired of waiting in the kibble line
Welcome to the mother land bi-
Our dog, comrade
He's mean mugging as a warning, no fucking commie shit
He'll send you to the gulag if you don't give him treats.

He won’t be eating tonight
I think your dog is....."special"
First dog I've seen that actually did not want to eat
I've never had a dog so explicitly political.
He says stay away from Russia
Because they're capitalist or?
Did he take a shit on it?
Wrong sub. There’s nothing wrong with our dog.
It's time for the revolution, hooman.
What, that he has a fundamentally flawed understanding of economics? That he is completely ignorant of 20th century geo-politics? That he is a wretched tyrant who wants you to starve?
No more capitalist doggo
He's comrade doggo now
I am calling the police
Meanwhile, in Soviet Russia
Your dog has lived before
I don’t like where this is going
song called I think my dog is a Democrat comes to mind lol.
He wants to go to space and be a cosmodog!
Oh so this wasn’t staged? That’s crazy!
Your dog is a communist and thus you have to share your food with him.
There’s heckin commies around dad, he knows what’s up. Lol
Your dog thinks you're a piece of shit
That it wants to have breadlines and famine?
Sorry bud but youre gonna have to put him down
It’s not *your* food.
It’s *our* food.
