Isn't there some quote about shooting anarchists like partridges or something?

Yeah not about anarchists. He sent a telegram to trotsky on the kronstadt affair saying 'shoot them down like partridges'.

It was Trotsky who said that. This is the quote from Alaxender Berkman pamphlet/short book called The Bolshevik Myth. I suggest anyone interested in this read it. Also read Makhno's visit to the kremlin. It shows just how out of touch with reality Lenin and the Bolshevik leadership were with reality due to he fact they were tucked away in offices.

"The Workers' and peasants' Government has decreed that kronstadt and the rebellious ships must immediately submit to the authority of the Soviet Republic. therefore, I command all who have raised their hand against the Socialist fatherland to lay down their arms at once. The obdurate are to be disarmed and turned over to the Soviet authorities. The arrested Commisars and other epresentatives of the Government are to be liberated at once. Only those surrendering unconditionaly may count on the mercy of the Soviet republic.

Simultaneously I am issuing orders to prepare to quell the mutiny and subdue the mutineers by force of arms. Responsibility for the harm that may be suffered by the peaceful population will fall entirely upon the heads of the counter revolutionary mutineers

This warning is final."

Trotsky, Chairman Revolutionary Military Soviet of the Republic.

"Trotsky has sent another demand to to kronstadt to surrender, the order containing the threat: "I'll shoot you down like pheasants."

I didn't know that Bolsheviks partook in the country persuits of the landed gentry but obviously its 'revolutionary' if you're murdering anarchists.

Dunno I've seen him wearing some nice suits. I don't know who designed the Red Army's uniform though. Their hats were pretty rediculous.
