Confirmed: Anita Dunn's favorite philosopher is the worst mass murder the world has ever seen

Last year, Anita Dunn, President Obama's former White House Communications Director, said her two favorite political philosophers were Mao Zedong and Mother Theresa. Why she included Mother Theresa when she wasn't a politician or a philosopher I will never understand.

But how does she explain Mao Zedong being a favorite philosopher? What could she have possibly liked about his philosophy considering he murdered his own citizens by the millions? I'd also like to know if she would like to amend her comments now that it's been confirmed that Chairman Mao's legacy is covered with blood of 45 million Chinese men, women, and children.

Mao Zedong exterminated 45 million of his citizens during his "Great Leap Forward." That's 45 million Chinese citizens starved, worked, or beaten to death in a span of four years. The evil that Communists are willing to commit has no limit:

Mao Zedong, founder of the People's Republic of China, qualifies as the greatest mass murderer in world history, an expert who had unprecedented access to official Communist Party archives said yesterday.

Speaking at The Independent Woodstock Literary Festival, Frank Dikötter, a Hong Kong-based historian, said he found that during the time that Mao was enforcing the Great Leap Forward in 1958, in an effort to catch up with the economy of the Western world, he was responsible for overseeing "one of the worst catastrophes the world has ever known"...

Between 1958 and 1962, a war raged between the peasants and the state; it was a period when a third of all homes in China were destroyed to produce fertiliser and when the nation descended into famine and starvation, Mr Dikötter said...

State retribution for tiny thefts, such as stealing a potato, even by a child, would include being tied up and thrown into a pond; parents were forced to bury their children alive or were doused in excrement and urine, others were set alight, or had a nose or ear cut off. One record shows how a man was branded with hot metal. People were forced to work naked in the middle of winter; 80 per cent of all the villagers in one region of a quarter of a million Chinese were banned from the official canteen because they were too old or ill to be effective workers, so were deliberately starved to death.

When a government determines that the collective must be protected at all costs, it can justify any action no matter how monstrous.

What with the White House Christmas tree bedecked last year with ornaments bearing Mao's image I would suggest the he might be barry's favorite philosopher/role model (especially since he shared office space with two of Chicago's most famous maoists for a number of years).

Maybe when they are done reeducating us about obamacare they can reeducate us about how mao was a great humanitarian.

In the effort to "Progress" us forward a little milk might get spilled. No big deal. They're just "little people" anyway.

Jim Addison:

With what I know of Anita Dunn and some of her associates, I suspect Mother Theresa was thrown in purely for "balance" - Dunn figured if she added the beloved figure, she could get away with mentioning Mao, who is her real hero. Like most modern American admirers of Mao, she would hesitate to just come out and say it.

And Mother Theresa seemed the ideal foil for the task: she was an old white nun who served the suffering poor, people who had nothing, so her work would help excuse her Catholicism in the eyes of the liberal academics, especially as many of them share Dunn's love of Mao.

Kim is of course quite correct - Mother Theresa never publicly opined on politics, and her philosophy can be boiled down to a single word: "Serve." Her ministry was not one of teaching, preaching, theologizing or philosophying. It began and ended with serving others, the least, the last, and the lost.

Mao murdered many many more than that four years' 45 million -- and maybe more than 200 millions. Anita Dunn's favorite, non-living, fascist monster -- and Henry Kissinger's "most-intelligent" -- was also history's most prolific-ever child rapist and likely raped around 10,000 children. (A record likely to live in ignominy -- and only ever challenged by the recidivist, treasonous, predatory, lying, looting, thieving, mass-murdering co-serial rapist Billy-Bubbah Blythe ["Cli'ton"] Gang -- and a few other (il)liberals)

Only the Chinese could be missing 45 million people and keep it a secret.

John F, Glenn Beck ripped her a new one, iirc.

That may have something to do with her being a FORMER communication director.

Or she may have let out her philosophy a bit early in the cycle. Timing, don't you know.

"Great Leap Forward" = "Fundamental Transformation"

But sadly for Barry and his appartachiks we won't go quietly...or at all.

This November 2nd we have a chance to abort Chairman Obama's "Great Leap Forward".

The scary part is that some liberal pundit waxed poetic about 'how much could be accomplished in one day if only we could emulate the Chinese'.

Once again you wingnut conservatives are unfairly smearing a liberal because she admires, excuse me, loves a guy who did his job really well.

What ever happened to striving for excellence?

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

2nd Amendment puts the power of the gun in the hands of citizens. The Chinese peasants did not have the arms to defend themselves from the government. The American people have the arms to change the government, if required. Those who tried to implement such actions here would find themselves and their families and all living relatives on the wrong end of those guns. Somebody should ask her what it was about Mao she likes and really dig at her to find out what it is.
