The Socialist That Killed 50 Million People...

While the focus of many books and articles today is on China’s successful economic reforms, dramatic new figures for the number of people who died as a result of Mao Tse-tung’s policies are surfacing, along with horrifying proof of cannibalism during the Cultural Revolution.

It is now believed that as many as 60 million to 80 million people may have died because of Mao’s policies-making him responsible for more deaths than Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin combined.

Gong said killer is not a strong enough word to describe Mao. “He was a monster,” she said.


  1. Stalin killed 52 million.

    Mao killed 66 million.

    I know, the cartoon's got it wrong.

  2. What amazes me, as edutcher suggests, is how proud leftists are of their butchers, and yet how humble they are when talking real numbers. Those numbers may be closer, but they are still just middle-ranges of average estimates. Even then, only of those where a name and date exists. How many just disappeared? Many. Many millions. Tens of millions. Yeah, the Simpsons is on the wrong side of things, though their numbers may be just typical ignorance.

  3. Doist-Confusionist-buhdist wisdom: They were all going to die anyway.

    Marxist wisdom: They all died for the greater good, so it was a bargain.

    Modern socialists: That was an aberration. Real Socialism doesn't need to kill anyone.

    Lenin-Moa-Stalin-Hitler-Gore-Clinton-Obama Wisdom: I got mine, so what difference does it make?
