This is a mugshot of Václav Havel. There are at least two others of the Czech playwright. Who can deny that this proves that the dissidents of Czechoslovakia were nothing but convicted felons and criminals who for years and years were — thankfully — never allowed to join or to influence the communist government in Prague?
By contrast, Gustáv Husák, the president and communist party leader for almost 20 years was never investigated by the police (secret or other) nor was any other communist honcho (unless, of course, like Alexander Dubček during the Prague Spring of 1968, they went against the accepted policies of the élite, the country's deep state, and the communist superpower in Moscow). How — how on earth — could the people of Czechia and Slovakia be so dastardly as to elect a convicted felon like Vaclav Havel as president of Czechoslovakia (the very first after the communist era)?! (Thanks for the Instalink, Sarah Hoyt.)
Then we have a prison photo of Alexander Solzhenitsyn (not technically an official mug shot). This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Russian leaders (communist or other) such as Stalin, Brezhnev, and Putin, none of whom were ever indicted (not once), were far better people and much more upstanding citizens than that sorry excuse for a convicted felon ever was. Other people whom the Kremlin occupants were obviously superior to include Andrei Sakharov.
Next (below), we have a photo of Martin Luther King Jr having his mugshot taken in Birmingham before going to a jail cell from which he wrote his famous letter. Obviously, someone creating as much havoc and spewing as much hate speech as MLK Jr should never had had his "Letter From a Birmingham Jail" published and disseminated for the nation and the world to read.
As for Nelson Mandela, finally, what business does that convicted felon have in being in the South African president's office?! That's the second convicted felon who got elected to the presidency (although for the first time, not for the second). It's scandalous! It's a travesty!
In conclusion, can't we say that Americans are lucky?
America has finally figured out that people in the West were wrong to demand that the Soviet Union, Communist China, and like régimes should imitate the United States. Instead, the USA should try to become more like a banana republic such as China, Cuba, or Venezuela.
Thus, we must hope the party in power can use their wisdom to transform the United States into a one-party state in order to use kangaroo courts to put more Republicans and other enemies of the people behind bars and, indeed (why not?), park them inside concentration camps.
