KIND THOUGHTS ABOUT THE ULTRA LEFT
Mao Tse-Tung was responsible for more deaths than anyone else in history, and subsequent powerholders in the PRC have not been that much more humane.
Fidel Castro and Ernesto Guevara were responsible for the murder of tens of thousands.
Josif Broz Tito was an vicious thug. Ceauçescu was a psychopath. Erich Honecker passionately enjoyed killing animals, and ordered his border guards to shoot people trying to escape to the west.
All revolutionary regimes have imprisoned hundreds of thousands of their own citizens for political purposes, usually in utterly brutal conditions.
European Communists unwaveringly supported violent terror in the third world, most significantly in Cambodia. Though they have since then rebranded themselves as "socialists", they still applaud the excesses of Stalin, Mao, and PolPot.
[It is instructive, for instance, to research the antecedents of the Dutch 'Socialistische Partij' (SP) - important leaders of this party were for years affiliated with the Maoist fringe, and to this day continue lauding murderous revolutionary movements. The key search-term is "Kommunistiese Eenheid Nederland - Marxisten Leninisten" (Ken-ML). The Chinese government provided covert logistical and financial support to the pro-Peking propagandists in the Netherlands and other European countries throughout the sixties and seventies, as has been revealed by news articles and government reports over the past decade and a half. Yet these mercenary traitors to their own people are still allowed a political role in Western Europe; many serve in the parliaments and government departments - the official national news organizations are almost uniformly sodden with their kind. In whatever function one now finds them, they unabashedly provide aid and support to terrorist movements in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.]
Here in the US the far left slavishly ape the Europeans in their continued support for the Venezuelan brute, the ambulatory corpse in Cuba, the petulant sexagenarian in North Korea, and the madman Mugabe.
As well as the murderers and cutthroats of Hezbollah and Hamas.
Given the monumental human suffering that the far left have been responsible for since 1917, in a perfect world every one of those people would be lined up and shot.
NOTE: This little rant is actually in praise of the internet in general, and social-networking sites in particular. It may not look like it, but it is.
