You may recall the Obama White House Christmas Tree included mass murderer Mao Tse-Tung ornaments last year.
And, no less than two of Obama’s top officials have praised Mao Tse-Tung publicly in the past.
They need to read this…
Mao Tse-Tung murdered 45 million of his own people during the Great Leap Forward.
The Independent reported:
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”.
Mr Dikötter, who has been studying Chinese rural history from 1958 to 1962, when the nation was facing a famine, compared the systematic torture, brutality, starvation and killing of Chinese peasants to the Second World War in its magnitude. At least 45 million people were worked, starved or beaten to death in China over these four years; the worldwide death toll of the Second World War was 55 million.
It would be nice if Obama officials actually read something about Mao before they started praising him in public.
