New York Times Romanticizes Ideology That Murdered 100 Million Innocent People By Joshua Philipp, Epoch Times | February 24, 2017 AT 2:05 PM Last Updated: February 25, 2017 6:30 am

It has been nearly 100 years since the February Revolution in Russia, which was used by Vladimir Lenin’s Bolsheviks to launch a coup in 1917, beginning a century of communist rule around the world marked by social decay, famine, and genocide.

The New York Times is commemorating this coming anniversary with a new series of articles on communism, the first of which on Feb. 24 omits any mention of the crimes against humanity committed under communist rule. Instead, it writes glowingly about the ideals of communism and asks whether we will see the “phoenix rise from the ash heap of history.”

Most of the world agrees Adolf Hitler was a monster whose totalitarian regime systematically murdered 6 million Jews, among other victims. All told, 11 million people died in the Holocaust.

Yet, in a similar light, why do so many academics who oppose fascism seem to support communism, which has killed in various estimates between 100 million and 150 million people? That’s many times more than died under Hitler.

In Cambodia alone, Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge murdered a quarter of their own population in what are now remembered as the “killing fields.”

Just like the Nazis, in a sadistic fashion similar to a serial killer, the Khmer Rouge photographed many of its victims—young men and women, the elderly, and even young children—before they shot them, suffocated them with plastic bags, or pummeled them to death with clubs.

We can also largely agree that protecting indigenous cultures and traditional beliefs is a noble cause.

Under communist rule, these same cultures and beliefs have repeatedly been marked for eradication. With its own ideology of atheism and Marxist dialectics, the ongoing stance of communist regimes is that their own views are the end of human progress and that all other ideas should be squashed with violence.

Josef Stalin had nearly every Muslim Tatar in Crimea rounded up and sent to camps, where they were slaughtered in the tens of thousands. The Chinese Communist Party still persecutes Tibetan Buddhists, Muslim Uyghurs, House Christians, and Falun Gong practitioners on a large scale.

The communist regimes still in power in China and in North Korea also continue to use Stalin-esque gulags and their vast networks of labor camps.

The New York Times piece seems especially fixed on the days of Lenin. It notes, in a romantic example, one of Lenin’s loyal followers, Semyon Kanatchikov, who “left rural poverty for a factory job and the thrill of modernity.”

Kanatchikov is a good example in this case. He, like most who were duped by communism, appeared to truly believe that it would give humankind a way out—that it would create the paradise on Earth that all communist leaders from Lenin to Kim Jong Un have promised.

Kanatchikov was ultimately purged by Stalin and died in a gulag in 1940.

Lenin had an unkind phrase for people like Kanatchikov. He referred to the idealists who would help communist leaders take power as “useful idiots,” as these people were often later jailed or murdered.

History witnessed many cases like this. Mao Zedong praised his supporters among Chinese students, from whom he created his “Red Guards.”

During the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, Mao used the Red Guard as his personal gang of thugs to attack, humiliate, or kill the “rightists” and landlords, or anyone who had not studied his own teachings deeply enough.

When Mao no longer had use for the Red Guards, he shipped them off to the fields as peasants.

While the Marxist history revisionists still try to argue that communism just hasn’t ever been done right—writing off 100 years of failed examples—I would question how many times humankind needs to fall into the same pit before it learns to take another road.

In every instance, in every country it has been tried, communism has brought waves of murder and misery.

For the people who lived under communism—including those who escaped East Berlin, those who fled the Soviet Union, those who survived the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields, and the countless others still being persecuted by communist regimes today in countries including China and North Korea—the New York Times piece feels scarcely different from a Nazi apology, an apology for cultural elimination, torture, and genocide.

Communism is estimated to have killed around 100 million people, yet its crimes have not been compiled and its ideology still persists. Epoch Times seeks to expose the history and beliefs of this movement, which has been a source of tyranny and destruction since it emerged.


Rabbi Steven Wise stated "Some call it Marxism, .. I call it Judaism". Judaism was the initiating force behind Communism. Karl Marx stated "The only purpose of all other races and peoples, both great and small, is to perish in a revolutionary Holocaust".

The Zohar states that when the messiah comes, all Gentiles in the world will be enslaved, and that ultimately, at the end of the world, all Gentiles will be exterminated and sent to hell under the Angel Duma.

Communism is just giving us a little taster of what is to come to all of us Gentiles in the end, if we continue to let the chosenites rule over us as our 'benevolent' masters. Their hypnotism of us all through their infiltration of our political parties, their controlled media, falsified history, hidden history, and religions is their greatest weapon over us.

Solzhenitsyn reported that it was common street knowledge that if arrested more than likely one would be interrogated by a jew and shot by a jew. The jews will not allow "Two Hundred Years Together" to be printed in English. Just think the largest mass murder in the 20th.century was the work of the jews in Russia.

"Lenin no longer lives, the old Communism may be dead, but the sense of injustice that animated them is very much alive." from the NYT article. You could replace Communism with Hitler or the Nazis and get a sense of the tone of this article.

so the Jews in the western world including New York Times:

"Six Jewish Companies Control 96% of the World’s Media"

So if you see a war, there for sure are some Jews behind that, because media are the most important in wars, not real weapons.

Eg. Saudi Arabia fully supported even with airstrikes by Israel against freedom of Yemen, Syria, etc. nowadays.

The banks are more important in wars than the media. They are the ones that fund them.
