Posted on 09/26/2017 9:05:33 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax
When people 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?
Communists 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 doesnt communism have the same terrible reputation as Nazism?
Reason 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 Im 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 communisms evil history.
Reason 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.
Reason Number 3: Communism is based on nice sounding theories; Nazism isnt. Its based on heinous sounding theories. Intellectuals in general including, of course, the intellectuals who write history...

Because liberals are commies.
It is odd considering how little difference there actually is between them.
But the “nice” liberals haven’t realized where their presuppositions will lead them.....
Because commies have better PR.
Generally speaking, most people who originally call other people Nazis ARE communists/socialists.
Unfortunately, most were conditioned to believe the Nazis weren’t socialists like themselves.
It is for me.
Because mass murder is ok if you do it to your own people.
Because US schools have filed in their history lessons, AND because the crimes of Nazism are MUCH more ‘visual’ and ‘literally’ documented.
Low intellect types NEED graphics to comprehend ANYTHING, so all the WWII films of openly and patently criminal Nazi conduct go a long way with the people who CAN’T/DON’T READ.
“Why Isn’t Communism As Hated as Nazism?”
Because college professors and demoncraps are Commies.
I agree! You’re just talking about what shade of lipstick you put on that pig.
In terms of genocide, Hitler was a piker compared to the commies.
Traditional liberals, like Thomas Jefferson, are fine, but today’s liberals who call themselves progressives are commies who won’t admit it to themselves and prefer another name for their perversions.
Why do you think?
Another home run by Prager.
Because the entities who should be tasked with educating people that communism is responsible for more than 50-100 times the murder and death than the Nazi ideology, are all communists and socialists at heart.
Media. Education at all levels. 2/3 of all politicians.
Because the Nazi’s attacked the mother home ...
Solely because of marketing.
My Freep tagline was changed recently, but it said something like:
“When you are a Hammer and Sickle, everything else looks like a Facist.”
I just found out recently that is a variation of what is called “Maslow’s Hammer”...learn something on FR every day.
