The House Of Special Purpose

16 July 2010 @ 09:50

This is the Ipatiev House in Ekaterinburg, Russia…

It was code-named The House Of Special Purpose by the Bolsheviks.  Lenin ordered that Nicholas II, ex-Tsar of all the Russias, and his family be imprisoned there, but that was not the ‘special’ purpose.  This is the Tsar and his family:

Parents: Nicholas, Alexandra
Children [in birth order]: Olga, Maria, Tatiana, Anastasia, Alexis

On the night/morning of 16/17 July 1918, the family was awakened, told to dress quickly as they would have to leave in a hurry, ushered into a basement room, and were murdered by a bunch of local Bolsheviks.  From Wikipedia:

Around midnight Yakov Yurovsky, the superintendent of The House of Special Purpose, ordered the Romanovs’ physician, Dr. Eugene Botkin, to awaken the sleeping family and ask them to put on their clothes. The Romanovs were then ordered into a 6×5 meter semi-basement room. Nicholas asked if he could bring two chairs for himself and his wife. A firing squad appeared next and Yurovsky announced:

“ Nikolai Aleksandrovich, your relatives have tried to save you, but they had not to. And we are forced to shoot you by ourselves… ”

Yurovsky then began to read the decision of the Ural Executive Committee (Uralispolkom), and Nicholas said “What?” As the weapons were raised, the Empress and the Grand Duchess Olga, according to a guard’s reminiscence, had tried to cross themselves, but failed amid the shooting. Yurovsky reportedly raised his gun at Nicholas and fired; Nicholas fell dead instantly. The other executioners then began shooting until all the intended victims had fallen. Several more shots were fired at the victims and the doors opened to scatter the smoke. Some survived the gunshots, so executioner P.Z. Yermakov stabbed them with bayonets because the shouts could be heard outside. The last ones to die were Anastasia, Tatiana, Olga, and Maria, who were wearing several pounds (over 1.3 kilograms) of diamonds within their clothing, thus rendering them bullet-proof to an extent. However they were speared with bayonets as well. Olga sustained a gun shot wound to the head while Anastasia and Maria were said to have crouched up against a wall covering their heads in terror until Maria was shot down, and Anastasia had been finished off with the bayonets. Yurovsky himself killed Tatiana and Alexei. Tatiana died from a single bullet through the back of her head. Alexei received two bullets to the head, right behind the ear. Anna Demidova, Alexandra’s maid, survived the initial onslaught but was quickly murdered against the back wall of the basement, stabbed to death while trying to defend herself with a small pillow she had carried into the sub-basement that was filled with precious gems and jewels. Military commissar Peter Ermakov, in a drunken haze, stabbed at the dead bodies of the former Czar and Czarina, shattering both their rib cages in a pool of blood.

The bodies were then loaded into trucks, taken into the woods, desecrated, and buried.

This is the room where they were slaughtered in the name of Leftism:

This brutal murder of a whole family was certainly not the first, nor would it be the last, such action perpetrated by Leftists in their various ‘glorious’ marches to bring about Heaven on Earth [hundreds of millions of souls cry-out to us], but in it, in this one action, is to be found the ultimate representation of where Leftism will always lead: to the slaughter of innocent human beings in the name of ideas — ideology.  Logic dictates that there can be no other end.

As long as Leftism is allowed to thrive, to just exist, then the Olga’s, Maria’s, Tatiana’s, Anastasia’s, and Alexis’s of this world are not safe from the barrels of Bolshevik guns.  If the Leftists were to control the world, they would turn the whole of it into a House Of Special Purpose.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Donald Douglas for linking over at American Power.

SIDENOTE: The whole family have been declared Saints by the Russian Orthodox Church…they are certainly Martyrs of Freedom…

Requiescat in pace

    Your assessment of where leftism must always lead is absolutely correct. No matter how tame or moderate leftism appears as the leftist policies inevitably fail, the blame is laid on Capitalism and the policies become more extreme and anti-liberty. This is why, for instance, I am always astounded that any thinking person would attempt to make a distinction between say Evan Bayh and Joe Stalin.

    That’s an excellent piece, and spot on right!

    That was a great post, Bob. The primary difference between our left and the Bolsheviks is that our left hasn’t enough power to do the atrocities that marked the 20th century. If we don;t stop them, at some point, the 100,000,000 dead in the last century will seem trivial in comparison.

      Matt: You’re quite right; the Russians didn’t nip this thing in the bud and look what happened.

      Nicholas and Matt: Thank you.

    “If the Leftists were to control the world, they would turn the whole of it into a House Of Special Purpose.”

    Substitute “Mohammedans” for “Leftists” and the sentence remains a true statement.

    So, while competing for the role of torturer/executioner, Mohammedans and Leftists are allied with respect to the “special purpose” of annihilating … who? … well, really, anyone they don’t like, which, given their intrinsic blood-lust, is everyone but themselves and, if need be, all their current friends as well.

    This profile is that of a demonic personality, of non-human genetic stock. There is but one way to deal with such: accelerated Darwinism. Exorcism is not an option in such cases.

      Spot-on, but I do think various forms of Exorcism are very useful.

    Quite a post, one I’d really like to share with my readers- so linked today at RR.

    Have a great weekend, Bob-

    This is such a powerful post, Bob. I did not know the entire circumstances of this Brave families murder. What horror. This is what the lefties bring. I could see them doing it here – maybe not in the same fashion, but the end result would be the same. Anyone they deem “not helpful to the state” or whatever, will be killed.

    God rest their souls and all people throughout history who were butchered by thugs everywhere.

    Excellent post, and great blog! My first visit here, and I’ll definitely be back. Found you via Reaganite Republican, and am glad I did. Great work. I agree with your concept; the leftists are not simply a threat to liberty and our economy, they will, unchecked, eventually be a threat to the lives of any who oppose them. They just don’t dare do that yet.

    The operative word being “yet.”

    Good job.
