If you’re looking for a funny and educational review of how disastrous Marxist-inspired communism has been for mankind, you can do no better than a series of videos produced by the comedy website Flappr.net.
In a provocative and refreshingly audacious three-part documentary series, Professor James O’Flannery collaborates with the team at Flappr, a conservative satirical blog, to take viewers on a sweeping journey through Chinese history, leading up to its modern incarnation.
The title is “The Chinese Revolution: Good Thing or Bad Thing?”, and the ensuing series thoroughly answers that question.
With communism on the rise, especially in places like Portland, Flappr offers some excellent counterprogramming for kids who don’t learn about the evils of communism in their government-run schools. It’s the antidote for concerned parents who might be startled when their teenager returns home spouting blood-stained ideologies.
O’Flannery, a.k.a. Professor Jimbo, is charmingly irreverent and politically incorrect. Throughout the series, he punctuates deep dives into significant moments in Chinese history with touches of humor.
Yet, beneath the chuckles lies a solid foundation of research. O’Flannery doesn’t just opt for comedic relief; he enlightens, providing viewers with a concise understanding of China’s vast dynastic history and its influence on the nation’s present cultural landscape. There’s a finesse in the blending of historical fact and fiction, ensuring viewers are both entertained and educated.
Key events and figures like Mao Zedong, the Great Chinese Famine, Xi Jinping, and Richard Nixon’s trip to China are addressed in a manner that showcases the complex tapestry of China’s metamorphosis. The fast-paced editing ensures that the series remains engaging throughout.
For those who find themselves drawn to Flappr’s distinctive style and take on the events of the Chinese communist revolution, there’s more in store. The production house has also crafted insightful examinations of Russian and French political landscapes. And word on the street is that an American Revolution installment is in the pipeline.
This is not just another historical documentary. It’s a vibrant, occasionally cheeky, and thoroughly insightful exploration that prompts viewers to question their understanding of history and its relevance today.
