    New Report: Mao Killed 45 Million (But He’s Still Cool)

    New Report: Mao Killed 45 Million (But He’s Still Cool)

    Mao Zedong caused the death of 45 million people according to a scholar who was given unprecedented access to Chinese Communist Party archives.  As reported by The Independent in Britain:

    Mao Zedong, founder of the People’s Republic of China, qualifies as the greatest mass murderer in world history, an expert who had unprecedented access to official Communist Party archives said yesterday.

    Speaking at The Independent Woodstock Literary Festival, Frank Dikötter, a Hong Kong-based historian, said he found that during the time that Mao was enforcing the Great Leap Forward in 1958, in an effort to catch up with the economy of the Western world, he was responsible for overseeing “one of the worst catastrophes the world has ever known”.

    Mr Dikötter, who has been studying Chinese rural history from 1958 to 1962, when the nation was facing a famine, compared the systematic torture, brutality, starvation and killing of Chinese peasants to the Second World War in its magnitude. At least 45 million people were worked, starved or beaten to death in China over these four years; the worldwide death toll of the Second World War was 55 million.

    Not that it’s a big deal.  Mao’s still cool.  And one hell of a political philosopher.

    It's what people that worship the anti-establishment don't know about their heroes that keeps scum like this alive in the hearts of many a freshman student. If you think about it, Che killed or had killed plenty himself along with any other person of this leaning.

    You have to give Mao credit for one thing: His writings on the Protracted People's War have inspired thousands of exploding Al Qaeda members and their like.

    When Glenn Beck was covering Mao during his Van Jones/Anita Dunn exposures earlier this year, he had this information on, with documentary images to illustrate the horror. Quoth Anita Dunn: "….one of my favorite philosophers, Mao Tse Tong…" (aka Mao Zedong, the "cool" PC name).

    The people who surround Obama, the "select chosen" of his administration, are of the same mind as Anita Dunn, when you delve into their character and beliefs. Sickening.

    Thanks for helping to expose this evil murderer for what he was – and is: the "cool" mass murderer of his own people, who the Left reveres. Shameless, evil – the Left worldview.

    well, murderer or not, he wasn't a dummy when it came to politics.

    For instance, Mao is absolutely correct to say that power comes at the end of a gun. The difference is that he applies that to mean the people shouldn't have guns. I, on the other hand say, that this is exactly why we have a second amendment.

    If you want to be depressed just read the comments section. For the most part it consists of excuses, justifications, and whining about capitalism.

    One person actually claimed that the Church's refusal to push condoms was an even worse crime than the state sanctioned murder of 45 million people.

    "Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history."
    –David Rockefeller, August 10, 1973 in the New York Times
    He made this statement after Mao murdered 60 million people!

    I don't understand why we don't watch influential people who idolize Mao more closely.
