Sean Spicer, the president’s communications director, is slimed because he made a reference to 20th century Hitler’s crimes in connection to 21st century Syrian Assad. Social media and the broadcast and cable outlets then went crazy. Some even demanded he resign--as though Hitler were the only Socialist who killed his own citizens. We all know Spicer was not referring to gas chambers to kill Jews, disabled, gypsies and enemies of the regime, but to the gas used as a WMD.
Why is every misstep or bad guy referred to as “Hitler” by the left--often their favorite appellation for GW Bush--when it was their team, the Communists, who killed 100,000,000 of their own citizens in the 20th century? Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. Don’t know? Because throughout the 20th century the United States had and still has, embedded Communists in our own government. As we entered WWII, FDR’s administration was riddled with them ignoring the slaughter going on, especially of Christians and anyone with property.
Following the collapse of the Soviet Union a commission chaired by Alexander Yakovlev reviewed archives revealing the Communist slaughter of Christians by drowning, freezing, castration, shooting, mutilation, burning, crucifixion, boiling in tar, scalping, strangling--savage atrocities killing priests, nuns, monks and faithful congregants. The death toll was in excess of twenty million and it continued well into the 1960s. Our leftist media, academics and politicians ignored it then and ignore or make excuses today.
In chapter 17 of a biography of Yakolev: "Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, the three creators on neo-Cainism. The main
criminals of the century. It is a lesson that many, indeed most,
historians of twentieth-century Russia, have yet to learn. Yakovlev
especially stressed Lenin’s role in the persecution and murder of
children, a fact generally not known. The Bolshevik authorities took
hostage the children of the 1921 Kronstadt rebels and later the
offspring of peasants who opposed collectivization ."
Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, and his ABC wife Claire Shipman actually had Soviet era posters hanging in his home as art--where was the outrage?
