Skip to comments.The Left is trying to rehabilitate Karl Marx. Let's remind them of the millions who died in his name

I can't quite believe that I've just sat through ten minutes of BBC television in which British journalists Owen Jones and Zoe Williams have defended Karl Marx as the prophet of the End of Capitalism. Unbelievable because I had thought Marxism was over with the fall of the Berlin Wall when we discovered that socialism was one part bloodshed, one part farce. But unbelievable also because you'd have to be a pretty lacking in moral sensitivity to defend a thinker whose work sent millions of people to an early grave.
I don't want to have to rehearse the numbers but, apparently, they're not being taught in schools anymore so here goes. Sixty-five million were murdered in China starved, hounded to suicide, shot as class traitors. Twenty million in the USSR, 2 million in North Korea, 1.7 million in Africa. The nightmare of Cambodia (2 million dead) is especially vivid. "Reactionaries" were sorted out from the base population on the grounds of being supporters of the old regime, having gone to school or just for wearing glasses. They were taken to the side of paddy fields and hacked to death by teenagers.

The left is not only aware of communism’s death toll, they enthusiastically endorse it.
Considering how much of world history has been rewritten by revisionist, most will believe anything the left feeds them.
China is Marxist.
And is a massive source of things we import every day, and sell throughout America.
Bring businesses home. Now.
Those who control the past control the future? Only short of divine intervention, and that always comes.
Let us NOT forget the little Austrian Corporal and the 13 million he murdered out right, or the 50 million who died in the war he started. Nazis are just socialists with a fancy name.
And snazzy uniforms.
Like the saying goes, “those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it.”
Maybe the BBC can defend Charlie Manson next - he killed so few compared to the Communists... but he’s still an evil son of a bitch... and that’s what they’re praising, right?
I see the confidence of communism's supporters (mostly in academia) growing rapidly in this country. They sense that they have victory within their grasps. And, sadly, due to a completely uneducated electorate, I believe they may be right.
These people are traitors. The British seem to forget that their Opium war is now waged on them.
Eat thine own country with the blessings of foreigners and fascists, all the easier to crush you.
Save for later
the difference between socialism and communism is the difference between seduction and rape! In the end, you still got screwed.
“The left is not only aware of communisms death toll, they enthusiastically endorse it”
Yep. Even if they “seem” to be on the same side.
All gangs endorse the demise of their rival.
Bloods vs Crips come to mind.
Control is the game.
Reference new york city election results from Tuesday’s election.
Just wow- unbelievable.
Let’s also remind them that killing commies is a proud American tradition.
