Some crazy SOB’s to be sure.

I could add one more name to the list, but that would be racist do not you know.

Hitler has successfully made his way as a symbol of tyranny and illogical totalitarianism, but very few people know that he was not the worse among the lot. There are a number of other mad men and mass murderers in history.

Following is the list of 8 historical rulers who were as mad as Hitler and even more of a lunatic.

  1. Urban II

Nowadays a pope is associated with creation of harmony and divine spiritualism that is a based on peace and love preached by Jesus Christ. But like many other things, historically Popes in the past have been found influencing politics and causing  wars.

One such figure was Urban II, who orchestrated the most deadly religious conflict in the history of religion. . Taking the control in 1088, Urban II had to constantly compete with his rivals. Urban II started a war warmongering campaign to start a war in the Middle East. He used influence and propaganda to amass a massive Army that ended up mercilessly slaughtering 200,000 ,Muslims and Christians alike, in and around the Holy Land. This started a 200 years long war between Muslims and Christians known in the history as ‘The Crusades’.

  1. Pol Pot

In his 22 years of rule over Cambodia as a leader of Khmer Rogue Pol Pot had reportedly killed between 1 to 3 million Cambodians. This might seem low compared to others on this list, but if you consider that this constitutes almost 25% of Cambodia’s population, these numbers do seem pretty high.

Pol Pot banned any education, religion and finance under his rule. Any educators or educated people he could find were executed, since he thought that education and religion are the cause of the all the ill of the society, and that he wanted to make Cambodia a pure state. He constructed a policy to move people out of the cities and send them to countryside, where they were forced to work on farms. Pol Pot’s policies not only killed scores of his people with starvation and disease, he successfully isolated Cambodia from rest of the world and shattered the economy to its core.

  1. Robert Mugabe

Undoubtedly the ‘poster boy’ of 20th century corruption and manipulation, Robert Mugabe destroyed Zimbabwe economically and morally during his long reign. His hunger for power and money resulted in a large number of people drowning in poverty and deprivation. Land grabbing, destroying homes, violation of human rights, killing opponents, persecuting homosexuals are some of the crimes from a long list of atrocities Mugabe committed in Zimbabwe.

It is estimated that a third of Zimbabwe population was killed by Mugabe; a massive 6 million human beings.

  1. The Kim dynasty

At the heights of tyranny, manipulation and corruption the ‘Kim dynasty’ have enjoyed power over North Korea for almost 70 years now. Few things never change, every ruler in the Kim dynasty was worse then his predecessor. The tyranny started when Kim Il Sung took to throne after successfully killing 2.8 million people during the Korean war. Under the disguise of progress and restoring country’s pride, the ‘first Kim’ (some people get confuse between the Kims so it is sometime convenient to refer to them as that) killed scores of his fellow countrymen. His son Kim Jung il, the ‘second Kim’ managed to slaughter more then 3 million Koreans including his opposition, party members and some of his family relatives as well. In the 90’s under Kim Jung il 3.5 million people died due to a famine created by the policies of Kim Jung il. He successfully manipulated the situation and blamed US and other western countries for the killing. The current leader ‘Kim Jung Un’ is following in the footsteps of the other Kims by adopting the same iron fist ideology. Recently he killed his uncle with a huge anti aircraft gun, suspecting that he was conspiring against him.

  1. Hong Xiuquan

The story of Hong is the textbook case of how a single traumatic incident could transform someone forever. Hong Xiuquan had very humble beginnings and grew up as a very bright young man. He was regarded as most respected provincial scholar in North China in 19th century. But after failing an Imperial exam he went through a nervous breakdown and started claiming that he was the son of God, the younger brother of Jesus Christ. He started a rebellion against Buddhism, Confucianism, and mainstream Christianity. He fought a number of battles with groups of various religious and political affiliations. After winning a decisive battle in 1853 he started ruling the city of Nanjing. He established his own rules and laws in the city. During his rule a large number of people were killed, some merely because they did not agree with Hong’s doctrine. He banned polygamy while keeping scores of concubines for himself and controlled his subject by fear and death.

  1. Josef Stalin

In our imaginary class of most ruthless, bloodthirsty tyrants, Stalin sits next to Adolf Hitler. Undoubtedly, Hitler massacred scores of Jewish and non-Germans around Europe, but most of Stalin’s’ victims were his own countrymen, people he ruled over. Starting from 20’s all the way to 50’s, Josef Stalin ruled soviet Union with an iron fist. For a brief period of time during the WWII Stalin sided with Europe but for a major chunk of his rule he stood against west. Stalin kick started the cold War with west that lasted almost half a century. During his reign Stalin had massacred from 10 to 30 million Russians. He carried out a purge multiple times against any opposition to keep the power over Russia. The highlight of Stalin’s atrocities is ‘Hunger Extermination’; an artificial famine that resulted in 8 million deaths in Ukraine alone.

  1. Mao Zedong

Known to the world as ‘Chairman Mao’, Mao Zedong ruled People’s Republic of China from 1949 to 1976. Mao took to reign after winning the Chinese Civil War and vowed to bring China to the World stage as a developed nation. His first step toward his goal was the wide scale encouragement of economic growth and increase in population. He was succeeded in achieving both, but at very high ‘human’ cost.

 

In the first three years of his ambitious plan that he dubbed as ‘The Great Leap Forward’ in 1958 an estimated 45 million died due to famine and starvation. Mao’s policies also contributed heavily in encouraging an unstable society from within. The instigation of one child law alone caused the death and abandonment of an estimated 100 million infant girls, since most of the Chinese wanted boys as their only kid, the What Culture reports.

  1. Genghis Khan

The opinion about Genghis Khan vary in nature and tone a great deal, depending upon who you ask. For most of Asians and Chinese Khan is a cultural hero who brought freedom and prosperity for his people. While for the Iranians and people of the Middle East Khan was the most ruthless murderer world had ever seen. Historically Khan slaughtered a close to 15 million inhabitants of Persian plateau. As compared to Mao’s killing figures these numbers seem a fraction but on percentage scale it was a great chunk of Iranian population. Iran could not get to that level until the middle of the last century. Another rather daunting fact about Khan is that 8% of Chinese men are descendants of Genghis Khan; this means 0.5% of World’s population has Genghis Khan’s blood in their veins.

Gun Control Dictator Style

This is from Godfather Politics.

All murdering tyrants agree gun control works for them.

 

dictators-gun-control

 

“All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.” — Mao Tze Tung ( 1938)

How ironic that those who are calling for gun control are those who want the guns so they can have the control.

It is of interest to the American people to take note of those who they entrust to serve them. We are a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, yet time and time again in this country we have leaders in government who put on the guise of “patriot” and then turn out to be the criminal in garb.

We learned in the past about the criminal acts of anti-gun mayors. We found that anti-gun mayors are criminals themselves, guilty as charged, within their own ranks of such crimes as tax evasion, extortion, accepting bribes, child pornography, trademark counterfeiting, perjury, and one demigod mayor was even convicted of assaulting a police officer.

The crimes that these anti-gunner mayors are convicted of suggest they are public enemies rather than public servants. No wonder they want to take guns from law-abiding citizens.

These politicians know all the while that where the citizenry operates in the rights given to them without government interference, namely the right to bear arms, crime diminishes. And with mud on their face, they know when they interfere with the right to bear arms, crime skyrockets.

What we see is that some of today’s politicians are magnifying the crimes they are placed in office to prevent.

They allow crime to be promoted through entertainment and when the crime is committed, they are there in hopes to grab the guns away. This is exactly how criminals in government operate. They demonize the gun, not the criminal.

Friends, this mentality is like blaming spoons for people being overweight, as if to say the act is apart from the actor.

Since criminal politicians refuse to look at history, which can be at the present our greatest teacher, it is very clear that gun banners know exactly what they are attempting to do – put the Second Amendment in the crosshairs.

Looking back, who has committed murder in the largest degree? Dictators Adolf Hilter, Mao Tze Tung, Josef Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, etc.

Time and time again, it has been a corrupt governments that has responsible for the mass murder of their own people under the deceptive guise of “gun control,” all of which the dictators implemented.

Keep in mind these people promised their citizens protection and freedom upon the forfeiture of their means to defend themselves and those freedoms.

How many times, I ask, does history need to repeat itself?

Let’s parallel history with the present ideology and methodology that those in the past blueprinted to implement gun control.

Mass murderer Adolf Hitler at a dinner talk on April 11, 1942 said:

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.”

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Josef Stalin, the dictator of the Soviet Union from 1924 to 1953, said: “If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Mao Tze Tung, communist dictator of China, said:

“War can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.”

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Idi Amin, president of Uganda from 1971 to 1979, said:

“I do not want to be controlled by any superpower. I myself consider myself the most powerful figure in the world, and that is why I do not let any superpower control me.”

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Pol Pot, who created in Cambodia one of the 20th century’s most brutal and radical regimes, was responsible for killing one million of his own ‘educated,’ yet unarmed citizens.

Our forefathers did not arm the American people for the purpose of hunting, but rather to protect themselves from those who were doing the hunting, namely the tyrant King George. The second amendment is only to vouchsafe our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and to ensure all of the other rights given unto us by our Creator.

The wisdom of the framers of the Constitution, once again, is found consistent with the lessons of the Bible they used as their bedrock for civil law. The people’s individual protection should always be a primary concern of government “of the people.” In a righteous country, self-government reigns by the constraint of Christian morals. The civil government that desires such a monopoly of force (i.e. they are the only ones with guns) is a threat to the lives, liberty, and property of its citizens, for that government ceases to be “of and for the people.”

George Washington, our first president, said:

“From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.”

This is from Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms Ownership.

We are forgetting history and the evils there.

The things that happened then can and will happen again.

We are slowly losing our freedoms.

November 6,2012 is our chance to retake America.

We must decide between America and Ameritopia.

 

 

During an involuntary moment of leisure, with nothing else to do, I recently found myself watching a program on the Public Broadcasting System. I’d seen — and even written about — other episodes of Rick Steves’ European travels before, notably his special on Iran, which ought to be shown to every war-mongering chickenhawk in America, if for no other reason than to see if it really is possible to die of shame.

This time, the subject was the ancient Polish city of Krakow, which has many attractions for tourists, especially those interested in history. Unfortunately, a significant part of that history is represented by the nearby sites of Auschwitz and Birkenau, where murder became an industrial process under socialist utopianism, and millions of Jews, Gypsies, gays, Russians, Poles, and others died as a result.

It is absolutely essential, in this connection, never to forget that Adolf Hitler, exactly like all his mindless, souless idolators, was a creature of the Left. “Nazi” is an abbreviation — a pet name, if you will — of the German words for “National Workers’ Socialist” party.

I’ve seen many other programs about the Nazi Holocaust — or Shoah (the “Catastrophe”) as it’s also been called — and so have you. Along with the Turkish slaughter of the Armenians, the Chinese “Massacre of the Landlords”, Stalin’s deadly crimes, (I would also include what happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki), and the insanity of the Cambodian Killing Fields, the Nazi Holocaust, the principal horror of the 20th century, was the crowning achievement of untrammeled statism in an age which, not by any means coincidentally, saw the rise of the gigantic super-government.

The 20th century was a century of mass-murder and war.

The 20th century was a century of unprecedentedly powerful government.

Plenty of “deep thinkers” have tried to account for the nightmare of the 20th century without taking the rise of the super-state into account. Philosopher and author Jacob Bronowski, sifting the muddy ashes of the martyred dead at Auschwitz through his fingers, declared that it was the “moral certainty” of the Nazis that killed their victims, and that humanity must cease striving for certainty of that kind.

But it was not moral certainty that allowed the Nazis to liquidate six million Jews and seven or eight million other individual human beings whose existence they disapproved of — not to mention tens of millions more who died in the general fighting of the Second World War. On the contrary, it was a lack of a moral certainty that other people’s lives do not belong to you, and that you have no right, for any reason, to interfere with those lives by initiating force against them.

Either that, or it was timidity — convicted mass-murderer Adolf Eichmann observed that his fellow Germans lacked “social courage” — fear of asserting what anybody with a speck of sanity or decency knows is right and what anybody knows is wrong (among other things, that you don’t round people up, herd them into concentration camps, and murder them). In either case, this is also the principal element in what many thinkers are already lamenting as the death (or suicide) of Western Civilization.

The Nazis were far from alone in their deficiencies of character. Indeed, it was and remains the predominant mode of thought to this day. Almost everybody believes — and are more than happy to use their super-governments to enforce it — that other people’s lives, and the products of those lives, are theirs to take away and use in any manner that strikes them as desirable. That is the psychological and ethical origin of intrusive economic and behavioral regulation. It’s why I cannot support any candidate who advocates any form of taxation at all: taxation is theft; taxation is slavery; taxation is the fuel of war.

Some of us have learned better, and we’re having greater and greater success at teaching others. I believe that’s what the Ron Paul campaign was really about. This could be a century of peace, freedom, progress, and prosperity. It could be the century of the Bill of Rights.

But we have big problems to solve.

Aside from casualties in a conflict that he started, Adolf Hitler murdered about thirteen million individuals. Josef Stalin murdered about the same number trying to collectivize Soviet agriculture and vainly attempting to appease his own crawling paranoia. Mao Zedong slaughtered 50 million human beings. Overall, in the battered, bloody 20th century alone, states killed one hundred million of their own people — a crime called “demicide” — in acts entirely separate from war,

But here’s the news, and it is not good.

All of this bloodshed (over 2 million 55-gallon barrels of the stuff from 1900 to 1999; double it to include “legitimate” fatalities of war) pales pathetically beside the unspeakably evil scheming of the usual parties who have deluded themselves into a belief that they have a right to tell other individuals what to do, indeed, that in some way they own those others and can do whatever they like with them,

In The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, crusty old Walter Huston famously declared that the world was “being shaved by an insane barber”. The mysterious B. Traven’s anarchist novel was written in 1927. The classic John Huston/Humphrey Bogart movie was produced in 1948.

Today’s world is being led by maniacs not one bit less demented and malevolent than Jim Jones of the People’s Temple and Marshall Applewhite of Heaven’s Gate. In the name of saving lovely Mother Gaia (an idea fully as nutty as joining the Mother Ship behind the comet Hale-Bopp), the “dominant culture” of so-called progressives and liberals is nothing more than a giant, wealthy, and powerful suicide cult. The degree they have revealed of their deadly ambitions would put Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and the entire Ottoman Empire to shame.

All of this would seem as perversely laughable (the Jim Jones poisonings probably raised the aggregate intelligencde of the San Francisco Bay area by a measurable percentage) and dismissable as any other death cult, except that it consists of most of the leaders of the United Nations and key members of the current Obama presidential administration.

The cult’s supporting policies are embodied in a U.N. declaration entitled “Agenda 21”. They’re quite open about it — look it up on their website — although everything is couched in environmentalist terms. Every time they employ the word “sustainable”, be sure to check your chamber and your magazine. Basically, “sustainable” refers to any activity or undertaking that will make your life shorter and more miserable. Anything that makes life longer or more enjoyable is not sustainable.

Somehow, they have divined that the Earth’s “carrying capacity” has already been exceeded by a thousand percent. Their goal is to reverse their achievements of Louis Pasteur, Robert Koch, Thomas Edison, Charles Steinmetz, Henry Ford, and all of humanity’s other great benefactors, and reduce the population of the planet by nine tenths, over which they mean to rule with politically correct benevolence.

They intend to dispose of about five billion people. That’s almost certainly why, for starters, we appear to be headed for a nuclear war in the Middle East, and it thoroughly (and obscenely) explains most of the last half-century’s western foreign and domestic policy decisions. Not irrational, after all, they were just aimed at achieving different results than we’d ever have guessed had they not chosen to brag about them.

Obama’s job (he has masters to obey) was to smash the economic engine of America and crush the philosophy of individual liberty on which it operates. His job is only halfway finished; he needs another term.

The job of Hillary Clinton (and others, like Charles Schumer, Carolyn McCarthy, Henry Waxman, and Diana DeGett) is to strip Americans of the personal weapons that will otherwise make reducing them under absolute despotism so difficult and messy. She is doomed to fail.

Americans have obeyed their last gun law.

The future is plastic. The badguys have their plans. We must make ours. Free people will all make different plans. That is our great strength.

Don’t work with anyone who says it is a weakness.

 

Liberals, Progressives and Socialists

This is by Walter E.Williams in Town Hall.

Professor Williams is correct with his observations.

The quote by George Santayana (1863-1952),

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” 

Sadly the past is being forgotten or ignored.

In Europe, especially in Germany, hoisting a swastika-emblazoned Nazi flag is a crime. For decades after World War II, people have hunted down and sought punishment for Nazi murderers, who were responsible for the deaths of more than 20 million people.

Here’s my question: Why are the horrors of Nazism so well-known and widely condemned but not those of socialism and communism? What goes untaught — and possibly is covered up — is that socialist and communist ideas have produced the greatest evil in mankind’s history.

You say, “Williams, what in the world are you talking about? Socialists, communists and their fellow travelers, such as the Wall Street occupiers supported by our president, care about the little guy in his struggle for a fair shake! They’re trying to promote social justice.” Let’s look at some of the history of socialism and communism.

What’s not appreciated is that Nazism is a form of socialism. In fact, the term Nazi stands for the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The unspeakable acts of Adolf Hitler’s Nazis pale in comparison with the horrors committed by the communists in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the People’s Republic of China.

Between 1917 and 1987, Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin and their successors murdered and were otherwise responsible for the deaths of 62 million of their own people. Between 1949 and 1987, China’s communists, led by Mao Zedong and his successors, murdered and were otherwise responsible for the deaths of 76 million Chinese. The most authoritative tally of history’s most murderous regimes is documented on University of Hawaii Professor Rudolph J. Rummel‘s website and in his book “Death by Government.”

How much hunting down and punishment have there been for these communist murderers? To the contrary, it’s acceptable both in Europe and in the U.S. to hoist and march under the former USSR’s red flag emblazoned with a hammer and sickle.

Mao Zedong has been long admired by academics and leftists across our country, as they often marched around singing the praises of Mao and waving his little red book, “Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-tung.” President Barack Obama’s communications director, Anita Dunn, in her June 2009 commencement address to St. Andrews Episcopal High School at Washington National Cathedral, said Mao was one of her heroes.

Whether it’s the academic community, the media elite, stalwarts of the Democratic Party or organizations such as the NAACP, the National Council of La Raza, Green for All, the Sierra Club and the Children’s Defense Fund, there is a great tolerance for the ideas of socialism — a system that has caused more deaths and human misery than all other systems combined.

Today’s leftists, socialists and progressives would bristle at the suggestion that their agenda differs little from those of Nazi, Soviet and Maoist mass murderers. One does not have to be in favor of death camps or wars of conquest to be a tyrant. The only requirement is that one has to believe in the primacy of the state over individual rights.

The unspeakable horrors of Nazism didn’t happen overnight. They were simply the end result of a long evolution of ideas leading to consolidation of power in central government in the quest for “social justice.” It was decent but misguided earlier generations of Germans — who would have cringed at the thought of genocide — who created the Trojan horse for Hitler’s ascendancy. Today’s Americans are similarly accepting the massive consolidation of power in Washington in the name of social justice.

If you don’t believe it, just ask yourself: Which way are we headed tiny steps at a time — toward greater liberty or toward more government control over our lives?

Perhaps we think that we are better human beings than the German people who created the conditions that brought Hitler to power. I say, don’t count on it.
