describe particularly evil individuals or regimes, why is it that they use the
terms “Nazi” or “fascist,” but almost never “communist?” Given the unparalleled
amount of human suffering communists have caused, why is “communist” so much
less a term of revulsion than “Nazi?”
killed 70 million people in China, more than 20 million people in the Soviet Union
(not including about 5 million Ukrainians) and almost one out of every three
Cambodians. They enslaved entire nations in Russia, Vietnam, China, Eastern
Europe, North Korea, Cuba and much of Central Asia. They took or ruined the
lives of well over a billion people. So why doesn’t communism have the same
terrible reputation as Nazism?
Number 1: There is, simply put, widespread ignorance of the communist record.
Whereas both right and left loathe Nazism and teach its evil history, the left
– and I’m talking about the left, not traditional liberals like Harry Truman or
John F. Kennedy – has never loathed communism. And since the left
dominates academia, almost no one teaches communism’s evil history.
Number 2: Nazis carried out the Holocaust. Nothing matches the Holocaust for
pure evil. The rounding up of virtually every Jewish man, woman, child and baby
on the European continent and sending them to die is unprecedented and
unparalleled. Communists killed far more people than the Nazis, but never
matched the Holocaust in the systemization of genocide. The uniqueness of the
Holocaust and the enormous attention rightly paid to it has helped ensure that
Nazism has a worse name than communism.
Number 3: Communism is based on nice sounding theories; Nazism isn’t. It’s
based on heinous sounding theories. Intellectuals in general – including, of
course, the intellectuals who write history – are seduced by words – so much
so, that they deem actions less significant than the words which provide cover
for them. For that reason, they have focused far less attention on the
horrific actions of communists than on those of Nazis. They dismiss the evils
of communists as perversions of “true communism.” But they regard Nazi
atrocities (correctly) as the logical and inevitable results of Nazism.
Number 4: Germans have thoroughly exposed the evils of Nazism, have taken
responsibility for them and have attempted to atone for them. Russians have not
done anything similar regarding Lenin's or Stalin's horrors. To the contrary,
Lenin, the father of Soviet communism, is still widely venerated in Russia. And
as regards Stalin, as University of London Russian historian Donald Rayfield
puts it, “People still deny, by assertion or implication, Stalin's holocaust.”
also failed to expose the greatest mass murderer and enslaver of them all, Mao
Zedong. Mao remains revered in China. Every Chinese currency note has his
picture on it. Until Russia and China, Vietnam, Cuba and North Korea acknowledge
the evils their countries committed under communism, communism's evils will
remain less recognized than those of the German state under Hitler.
Number 5: Communists murdered mostly their own people. Nazis, on the other hand,
killed relatively few fellow Germans. “World opinion” – that largely
meaningless and amoral term – deems the murder of members of one's own group
far less noteworthy than the murder of outsiders. That’s why, for example,
blacks killing millions of fellow blacks in Africa elicits almost no attention
from “world opinion.”
Number 6: In the view of the left, the last “good war” was World War II, the
war against German Nazism and Japanese fascism. The left does not regard wars
against communist regimes as “good wars.” For example, the American war against
Vietnamese communism is regarded as immoral and the war against Korean
communism – and its Chinese communist backers – is simply ignored.
left--and all the institutions influenced by it--acknowledge how evil communism
has been, we will continue to live in a morally confused world.
meantime, all good people owe it to the victims of communism to learn what
happened to them. Even worse than being murdered or enslaved is a world that
doesn’t even know that you were.

CHANTILLY, Va. (ABC7) — When
their order was not ready as fast as they wanted, three men argued with McDonalds
employees and one showed a gun and threatened to kill the employees, police
The three men went into the McDonalds
in the Chantilly Shopping Center at about 9 p.m. Thursday. When their food was
not ready, an argument broke out. One man pulled up his shirt to show a gun in
his waistband and threatened to kill the employees, according to a statement
from Fairfax County Police.
After leaving the restaurant, the
three men were arrested nearby.

Kyle Emmanuel Harris, 19, of
Chantilly was charged with brandishing a weapon, simple assault, possession of
marijuana and disorderly conduct.
Erisk Cruz, 18, of Centreville was
charged with possession of a controlled substance and disorderly conduct.
Brian Abrego, 18, of Manassas was
charged with disorderly conduct.
Ed.Now that these sub-humans have
been “ratted-out,” the question becomes what will they do to the McDonalds
employee who called police?
The city of St. Louis passed a
resolution to honor Anthony Lamar Smith Friday. His mother and her husband were
there to accept. Jason Stockley, the white ex-police officer whose
Friday acquittal in the death of Smith sparked days of protests.
Stockley left, Smith right
Alderman John Collins-Muhammad
introduced the resolution and
presented it to Smith's mother, Annie. "I invited her here today to
let her know the city of St. Louis and the Board of Aldermen shares her pain,
her frustration, and her deep dissatisfaction with the turnout of everything
that has happened."
Board of Alderman President Lewis
Reed read the resolution before the legislative body and addressed Annie Smith.
"I'm a father of four so I can
understand how difficult this is for you. You have my heartfelt condolences. We
stand with you at this time," Reed said. "This resolution is the
highest honor that this board can give to any organization or individual. When
you look back at history, at this time, and you see the changes that has
happened so we have a criminal justice system that is fair to everyone that
comes in contact with it and we have a police department that works better with
its citizens. You're going to see amongst those records, your son's name. Know
that he ushered on some change in our city and across this nation. This is
going to be a better nation because we won't forget what happened on the
streets of the city of St. Louis. Lets give them a big round of applause."
Ed.Words fail me. But note the way in which the principal actors are portrayed, with Jason Stockley appearing in a quasi-mug shot while the heroin dealer appears with his daughter. Yeah, he was a good boy...
Dems Protect Child Rapists and Fight Trump
California lawmakers up to these days?
Daniel Greenfield:“In addition to the
multiple gratuitous legislative attacks on President Trump, which are as
bizarre as they are unprecedented, there was a bill, introduced by Senator
Scott Wiener of San Francisco, to remove sex offenders from the sex offender
registry. Wiener claimed that the sex offender registry was homophobic. The
bill, which passed, will allow child rapists to be removed after 20 years, and gives child pornography
distributors a pass after 10 years.
Harvey Milk stamp
spokesman for Governor Brown, whose former pal Jim Jones would have been
thrilled by the legislation, spoke glowingly of the bill. But this is a state
in which a statue of another Jim Jones ally, Harvey Milk, the Democrat
pedophile who lured runaway teens, decorates San Francisco City Hall.”
Gerard Dols told of how – as a
physically disabled teen – the “very nice” Harvey Milk had encouraged him in
1977 to run away from his Minnesota home and come to San Francisco.
According to Dols, Milk told him,
“Don’t tell your parents,”
In his glowing book “The Mayor of
Castro Street,” Randy Shilts wrote of Milk’s “relationship” with the
McKinley boy: ” … Sixteen-year-old McKinley was looking for some kind of father
figure. … At 33, Milk was launching a new life, though he could hardly have
imagined the unlikely direction toward which his new lover would pull him.”
The bill instructs the governor to
proclaim a “Harvey Milk Day” and designates “that date as having special
significance in the public schools and educational institutions” and encourages
them to “conduct suitable commemorative exercises.”
I guess having sex with older men
would be a suitable commemorative exercise.
But Harvey Milk, deceased politician
and gay icon, didn't just limit himself to molesting underage boys. It
was much worse than that.
“Rev. Jones is widely known in the
minority communities here and elsewhere as a man of the highest character, who
has undertaken constructive remedies for social problems which have been
amazing in their scope and effectiveness,” Supervisor Milk wrote President
Jimmy Carter seven months before the Jonestown carnage.
"Rev" Jim Jones
The purpose of Milk’s letter was to
aid and abet his powerful supporter’s abduction of a six-year-old boy. Milk’s
missive to the president prophetically continued:
“Not only is the life of a child at
stake, who currently has loving and protective parents in the Rev. and Mrs.
Jones, but our official relations with Guyana could stand to be jeopardized, to
the potentially great embarrassment of our State Department.”
John Stoen, the boy whose actual
parents Milk libeled to the president as purveyors of “bold-faced lies” and
blackmail attempts, perished at Jonestown.
December 17, 1978 - New York Times -
Determined to help elect politicians friendly toward his People's Temple, the
Rev. Jim Jones ordered what former temple members say was an organized campaign
of fraudulent voting practices that included importing busloads of illegal
voters to cast their ballots in this city's 1975 municipal elections.
Among those named by some of Mr.
Jones's former followers as recipients of his political support were Mayor
George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, both of whom were shot and killed in
their City Hall offices, three weeks ago, allegedly by an enraged former city
Voter fraud isn't a problem. Just ask
Milk had used Temple volunteers,
wrote endorsement letters, and, in a hand-written note, told Jones "my
name is cut into stone in support of you - and your people."
