Communist treachery

Communist advocates neglect to mention massive social failures and horrific mass killings of their own people over the past century.

Researcher Valentino defines communist ‘mass killings’ as at least 50,000 intentional deaths over the course of five years or less, of unarmed civilians “under conditions of essential defenselessness and helplessness of the victims", such as in Stalin's Soviet Union, China under Mao Zedong, Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge and regimes in North Korea, Vietnam, Eastern Europe and various nations in Africa.

Highest death estimates usually account for crimes that governments committed against civilians, including executions, the destruction of populations through man-made hunger and deaths that occurred during forced deportations, imprisonment and forced labour.

Since 1945, communists committed 14 of 38 mass killings perpetrated by non-democratic states outside the context of war. Communists are prone to mass killing, hence, they attempt to disarm their populations soon after they gain power.

The Soviet Famine of 1932–1933 and the Great Chinese Famine, which occurred during the colossal failure of the Great Leap Forward, have both been "depicted as instances of mass killing underpinned by genocidal intent."

Whether mass killings, politicide, genocide, geno-politicide (killing of political, economic, ethnic and cultural groups), holocaust, terror executions, state killings, criminal manslaughter, terror starvation, inciting violence, insurrection, extermination, repression, classicide or crimes against humanity, communists viciously executed all of these loathsome methods to control citizens.

In 2017, Professor Stephen Kotkin wrote in The Wall Street Journal that “communism killed at least 65 million people between 1917 and 2017”. Death estimates vary between 60 to 150 million souls!

He writes, "Though communism has killed huge numbers of people intentionally, even more of its victims have died from starvation as a result of its cruel projects of social engineering."

These numbers are brutally staggering.

Canada is not exempt from despicable communist thinkers. Many in Canada teach school children and others hold high government positions.

To ‘admire’ and sustain regimes that reigned horror and bloodshed upon innocent people and caused untold misery and heartache is reprehensible.

Millions of mothers, fathers, children and good souls were filled with fear, wickedly tortured and butchered in secret and thrown in mass graves by savage communists whose heroes herald humanity’s shame and infamy.

Today, socialism’s deliberate lies corrupt morality, teach CRT, attack religion, proclaim white supremacy and attack the family.

Lest we forget, communist/Marxist treachery is underhandedly alive in our own country.
