Remembering today, on his birth anniversary, a man who gave birth to an ideological cult responsible for the murder of 100 million people.
"Who is a communist? One who reads Marx. Who is an anti-communist? One who understands Marx."
Mao. Great Leap Forward. Killed 45 million in 4 years flat. #Communism independent.co.uk/arts-entertain…
"Deaths have benefits. They can fertilise the ground." - Chairman Mao (ref: Mao: The Unknown Story; Chang, Halliday)
When Communism resulted in Cannibalism. (ref: Mao: The Unknown Story; Chang, Halliday)
Mao, the very same Mao who KILLED upwards of 63 million, OF HIS OWN people, is WORSHIPPED by some here. THIS is the true face of Communism.
The one book the Communists wish had NEVER been written, is the one book that MUST be read. amazon.in/Black-Book-Com…
Why Do People Become Communists? STUNNINGLY brilliant piece, by @jeffreyatucker. A must-read. (via @meritocratic) libertarianinstitute.org/politics/peopl…
Typical. Red when can't pay the bill; Blue when over the hill. #UKElection2017 twitter.com/i/moments/8746…
BBC: Three quarters of Venezuelans have lost on average 9 kgs in the last year. A third are eating two or fewer meals per day. #COMMUNISM
Of what Dr Ambedkar wrote on Islam (newslaundry.com/2017/04/14/amb…) replacing the word 'Islam' with 'The Left' makes for an interesting reading.
Believe me when I say that the Left is a disease for which there is NO cure. You CANNOT change them. But you can EXPOSE them.
Nothing typifies communists and Communism more. A fortnightly magazine commemorating October Revolution in December. Late by two months.
SICKENING, but entirely expected, behaviour of Left activists and Editors towards their colleague at the Wire when she was assaulted by the wrong mob.

I repeat: there exists NO cure for this vile cult. So be careful. Don't catch the infection. m.facebook.com/story.php?stor…
It is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE for me to keep relations with the communists. I am an implacable ENEMY of the Communists. - BR Ambedkar

Dr Ambedkar on Communism. Direct. DEVASTATING.

Do read my column: newslaundry.com/2018/02/26/hin…
Thus spake EMS Namboodiripad, founder of CPI(M), on Dr Ambedkar's Constitution.

He wanted to WRECK IT FROM WITHIN. (source: Kafila)
EMS Namboodiripad, founder of CPI(M): Caste System is a SUPERIOR economic organisation. Working Class is SUPERIOR to the Dalits.

No wonder Dr Ambedkar detested the Communists and their anti-science cult. "I am an implacable ENEMY of the Communists." outlookindia.com/magazine/story…
Lenin being brought down in a square in Tripura.

Much as it was an eyesore, this is UNACCEPTABLE. The previous govt was a democratically elected govt and this statue was put up by it via legal means. One expects the governor @tathagata2 to order action against these hooligans.
Shocking. Hon'ble Governor @tathagata2, are you saying these people who brought Lenin's statue down had the necessary govt sanction to do so? And since the new govt hasn't taken up office yet, did you give them the legal sanction? Please clarify. Thank you
Lenin ka statue girane wale bhaiyon aur beheno, ek dhakka zara Modi ji ki Leninist policies ko bhi de do. Badi meharbani hogi.
Glad to learn that the driver of the bulldozer used for toppling Lenin has now been arrested, according to Ipper Monchak, SP, South Tripura.

If this nation has to run, it has to run according to law, not emotions or vigilante justice.

Well-done, @Tripura_Police.
Murderous dictator. Architect of the Red Terror and Cheka. Oversaw a great famine and economic collapse. Fell from a great height. Lack of hair meant fall couldn't be cushioned. Rest is History. To know more, read Pipes.
Some images from the #KisanLongMarch.
Protesting farmer: "After the protesters were arrested, CPI (M) workers came and set the tents on fire."

Dr Ambedkar: "Communists say there are only two means of establishing Communism. The first is violence. The other is dictatorship of the proletariat." thenewsminute.com/article/tents-…
Here it is, STRAIGHT from the horse's mouth. Comrade Sitaram Yechury: "When I entered St. Stephen's, you had on the chapel written, CHAIRMAN MAO IS OUR CHAIRMAN. 13 students were expelled. Those were the GREAT Maoists of the time. Some of them are EMINENT academicians today."
SHOCKING. CPI(M) passed a resolution HAILING the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

These same Communists supposedly fight for Human Rights. 10,454 people were KILLED in the Tiananmen Massacre. CPI(M) hailed it. VILE. (h/t @NivePrasad; ref Pax Indica, Tharoor) books.google.co.in/books?id=URqYQ…
This man's party, the CPI(M), passed a resolution HAILING the Tiananmen Square crackdown in which 10,454 innocents were ruthlessly MURDERED.

THIS is the true face of Communism. LOOK at it. REMEMBER it.
China has put ONE MILLION Muslims in internment camps. Muslims are being FORCED to eat pork. (independent.co.uk/news/world/asi…)

The US has demanded sanctions against China. (abcnews.go.com/International/…)

And yet, Mr Yechury & CPI(M) remain SILENT. Why? COMMIE EKTA. theatlantic.com/international/…
The Lost Revolution and the Gandhians with grenade-launchers. A breathtakingly BRILLIANT essay by @KanchanGupta on the curse that continues to consume - Communism; and how it is the seed that ultimately sprouted Urban Maoism. Again, BRILLIANT. openthemagazine.com/article/essay/…
For all those who emerged from our Education system with degrees in the Humanities but did not become communists, leftists, illogical, entitled dunderheads, I have nothing but RESPECT.

You must have read the same biased books, had the same blockheads as peers; HOW did you do it?
Thugs of Hindostan as a challenge to Hindutva’s cultural hegemony.

PEAK Left Intellectualism.

The enduring image in my mind right now is that of the gangly bespectacled Swamy pointing at the heavens and asking J dot Asthana: Excuse me, sir. What is the procedure to UNREAD this?
Aurangzeb was the finest of Mughal emperors, says the communist.

When I remind him of the genocide perpetrated by Aurangzeb, the man says that's all lies.

NO difference between Aurangzeb apologists & Holocaust deniers. Twisted minds, in need of IMMEDIATE medical intervention.
