‘Useful idiots’ line up to support M-103

The term “useful idiot” has been attributed to the Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, who toppled the czar in October, 1917.

Lenin’s exact word in Russian was “simpleton” to describe people in the West who served his purpose, but were neither truly aware of who was using them, nor the cause they served.

On Sunday, a blatant exhibition of “useful idiots” was on display at Toronto City Hall.
