I think, this is not really what arouses the hate for George Orwell
among the stalinists, but his complete destruction of the stalinist
lies about the revolutionists in the Spanish Civil War in Orwell's
"Hommage to Catalunya".
Orwell had so thoroughly demolished all the lies about the POUM and
other currents who did not fight against the revolution, leaving
nothing of the mountain of lies. That is the real offence which the
Stalinists never pardoned Orwell for.
