Mao was another leftist who liked to use “forward” in his slogans.

Americans need to remember that among Hussein’s inner circle, Mao is admired.

Of note are the comments on the BBC forum from the shills for the Chinese government. Look at how several of the comments are essentially regurgitations of talking points. The Chinese are very clumsy in their censorship efforts.

Mao Zedong is one of the Left’s patron saints.
His memory is sacrosanct, regardless of any minor mistakes he may have made. After all, in order to make an omelet, you must first break some eggs.

At least no corporate overlords were eating lush banquets while the people starved./s Only communists overlords should get to do that.

(End the occupation. Annex today.)
Yang, aged 72, is neat, small, swaddled in two jumpers despite the shafts of winter sunlight that stream across his desk. He is rummaging through his shelves on the hunt for a book whose title is important: by a Western author whose name has slipped his mind.
"Something about slavery?" he says. I try the name Hayek and after a bit of transliteration it works. He had stumbled on Friedrich von Hayek's The Road to Serfdom in a library and chuckles with mild scepticism when I tell him it is probably the most influential book in Western economics:
"Before I read Hayek, I had only read works the party wanted me to. Hayek says that to use the state to promote a utopia is very dangerous. In China that's exactly what they did. The utopia promoted by Marx, even though it is beautiful, it is very dangerous."
GMTA...even in the PRC.

“Yang Jisheng: The man who discovered 36 million dead.”
Heh. I thought this was going to be about some guy looking into our recent election numbers.

(So I [God] gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. Psalm 81:12)
We react with horror when we read 20th century’s history of concentration camps, mass starvation and deaths at the hands of the communists in China, socialists in Germany, the Maoists in Cambodia. These were all political regimes that demanded top down control by the state, enforced at the point of a gun. Millions and millions died for opposing the state, more died as innocent bystanders who just wanted to live and be left alone. We wonder how could the people let this happen?
Just don’t look at America’s truly innocent that just wanted to live their lives but never had a chance to take their first breath. The numbers are comparable.
We now call this euphemistically “health care” and some claim it is a right. Will we ever look back on our history and wonder how could the people let this happen?
