On This Labor Day Please Remember the 94 Million Killed by Communist Workers Party in the 20th Century
Labor Day is Communist Workers Party Remembrance Day.
On this Labor Day please remember the 94 million brutally murdered, starved, beaten to death and assassinated by Communist regimes in the 20th Century.
According to a disturbingly pleasant graphic from Information is Beautiful entitled simply 20th Century Death, communism was the leading ideological cause of death between 1900 and 2000. The 94 million that perished in China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Afghanistan, and Eastern Europe easily (and tragically) trump the 28 million that died under fascist regimes during the same period.
During the century measured, more people died as a result of communism than from homicide (58 million) and genocide (30 million) put together. The combined death tolls of WWI (37 million) and WWII (66 million) exceed communism’s total by only 9 million.
It gets worse when you look at the lower right of the chart—The Natural World—which includes animals (7 million), natural disasters (24 million), and famine (101 million). Curiously, all of the world’s worst famines during the 20th century were in communist countries: China (twice!), the Soviet Union, and North Korea.
And today as you enjoy your holiday with family and friends please remember the starving people in Venezuela ruled over by Socialist tyrants.
