Founder of todays China killed 45 million of his own people
(TibetanReview.net, Sep05, 2010) Recently declassified Chinese Communist Party archives show that the Great Helmsman, Chairman Mao Tsetung's regime cased the greatest "man-made famine" the world has ever seen, reported the ANI news service Sep 3, citing a new publication from Hong Kong. Mao's Great Famine, by Frank Dikotter, Professor of Humanities at the University of Hong Kong, is reported to show that 45 million Chinese people were killed between 1958 and 1961.
Chinese propaganda posters of the late 1950s show smiling young workers marching jubilantly towards unity under the benevolent Great Leader. However, the historian is cited as saying, the reality was that workers were more likely to be found lying dead in the gutters of rundown towns or falling, weak from starvation, in the paddy fields. All around would be the stomach-churning signs of neglect, food shortages and death dealing poverty. People often risked their lives stealing grain from the fields.
The newly opened party archives are reported to show that starvation drove some peasants to actually eat the earth itself before dying. Many houses in the smaller towns were pulled down to provide building materials, with their former occupants forcibly herded into collectives, or, worse, left to live wild. Some of the elderly workers, too frail to keep up with unrealistic production quotas, were put on slow starvation diets.
The book is cited as saying Chairman Mao, who is revered by the current regime with his portrait hanging on the Tiananmen Square, was not the warm father of his people, but a foul, heartless dictator, who had thrown his country into frenzy.
And while the ordinary people of China fell into the depths of hell, corruption was reported to be rampant at every level of Chinese society from those in Chairman Mao's own coterie (all of whom lived a luxurious life) right down to the small local officials. For example, in a town just outside Beijing, the head of a retirement home systematically stole food and clothes earmarked for the elderly, condemning them to a winter without warmth or padded jackets. Most were said to have died as soon as the frosts appeared and their bodies were left unburied for over a week.
Just for perspective picture 420+ of these stadiums filled.
Communists are the number one mass murderers of the 20th Century, hands down.
This comes as no surprise to anyone who has been paying
attention. Only the personal accounts have been lacking
but now they’re coming to light.
This is news? Only for those that refuse to see the obvious.
That stadium holds 107,000 people?
central planning hell
In that picture, I believe in now holds over 114,000.
I like how you tie in obamacare and the fact that communism always results in dead people.
Aren’t there folks in the obama admin who admire mao?
Birds of a feather.
wow, that’s big
I like your tagline.
Biggest in the nation still I believe, and a blast to be there on game day too.
Hi. Thanx. ;~ )
...and I thought the Rose Bowl was big ...
It would not surprise me. The road to h-ll is paved with good intentions (that just don't work).
The ultimate trump card of the global statists is the food supply.
Their use of such tools as “cap and trade” (tap and bleed) and the EPA controls over land use and farming, their control of private property, and their abuse of the interstate commerce clause to control what people can grow on their land (by charging a confiscatory fee) are all designed in large part to centralize control of the food supply.
The recent trends in the various bread baskets of the world indicate a cooling trend, despite the lies from the eco-commies.
Folks, this is very dangerous. We do not have the excess food-manufacturing and storage capacity that we used to have because of the above control issues and because we have grown complacent thinking that our technology and the weather will always allow us to produce and abundance of food.
This is no longer the case. And we are at a very dangerous point in that one small event could cause massive food shortages.
In the last couple of years, the western provinces of Canada have exhausted the government-funded subsidies for crop failure — and this happened because of a very slight drop in temperature and increase in rain. Those weather patterns usually migrate to the upper midwest and central region of our country.
Read my tag and make it a part of your lives.
yeah I just have to shake my head when somebody waxes on about how much he “admires” mao
Precisely why he is so beloved by the left.
