Mao: the Man and the Butcher

Recently, Obama administration communications director, Anita Dunn recently praised Mao-Zedong at a high school graduation speech as a "favorite political philosopher" and one of "two people I turn to most" for inspiration. I am utterly fascinated that people who ought to know better haven't come down on her for this. This is an outrageous admission that would have received mass condemnation had she replaced Mao with Adolf Hitler or Josef Stalin.

Because in fact a China scholar, Prof. R.J. Rummel estimates that Mao was more lethal than Hitler or Stalin. Perhaps Dunn has not received the scorn she is due for her remarks because of the failure of history teachers and professors in this country and elsewhere to teach and highlight the mass murders committed in the name of "progress" and "reeducation" by Far East regimes.

But it seems the political Left knows what it is doing. Mao Zedong is, in fact, a hero to many of them. Ms. Dunn's remarks were calculated to draw into this worldview the young and impressionable minds of high schoolers.

This is very, very sad. We are witnessing the takeover of our great nation and its institutions by the Far Left - led by a glib, leftist professor. I pray daily for the fall of this administration and their quick exit from the national and world stage. And, no, Obama's fall would not be our nation's fall. Yet may God open the eyes of this people that we may regain our sight to see how far we have fallen.

>"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
