Optimus Prime a Communist?
Mac vs. PC, GSM vs CDMA, PHP vs ASP, there are many things that tear Laptop Ninjas apart, but one thing we can all agree with is that Optimus Prime is pretty much the coolest character of all time. If you don't think so, please leave my site.
Hovever, it seem that just like his saturday morning contemporaries The Smurfs, he is also a communist, at least he likes to chill in China when he's not kicking Decepticon Ass. Deep in the heart of the Yunnan Provice stands a (lifesize?) statue of the the greatest leader of all time.
Just like Mecca, I predict that we'll start seeing thirty something fanboys making pilgrimages to this remote location just to see this awesome testament to the keeper of the Matrix. I know I'm booking my tickets now.
As for his political leanings, we can't say this is a suprise. I mean, it may seem a little weird, but if the Autobots are the ideological opposite of the Decepticons then they have to be communist. The Decepticons are a finely tuned military machine that is waging war and killing the environment to satisfy their thirst for 'Engergon' without any regard for the wellbeing of the planet or other cultures. Now who does that remind you of?
