WATCH: Why isn't communism as hated as Nazism?

StaffRebel Columnist

In his latest video, Dennis Prager explains why communism isn't as hated as Nazism, despite the fact that it really should be.

Communists ruined the lives of over a billion people, yet many remain ignorant of this. Because the Left dominates academia, the crimes of communism will never get the attention they deserves.



Prager adds that historians “dismiss the evils of communists as perversions of 'true communism'”.

And is there some reason that The Rebel’s spell checker has not recognized the spelling of MAGADAN for several years now?…

Westerners in " denial" is also illustrated by the website of Compass Tours International where a happy and grinning group of offroad motorcyclists pose setting off on a romp down the Road Of Bones… I wonder if they would be quite so “jolly” if their tour guides led them through the gates of Auschwitz? The road to Magadan is literally built on the bones of the corpses of hundreds of thousands of Soviet dissidents who perished in the Siberian winters… But hey; it’s evidently just more “scenic highway” to that happy group…

All excellent points Dennis Prager…. But a key one I think is the fact that Russia, unlike Germany, has never taken “responsibility” for the millions they killed in “Mother Russia” or the countries of Eastern Europe which they occupied right up to 1991…. While the Russian mentality allows such “studious ignorance” it is a wonder that more people and refugees from Eastern Europe are not listened to by the rest of today’s world… Indeed, in many of Eastern European countries the NKVD era secret files remain closed and gathering dust in old archives… The Russians also don’t encourage memorial visits to the Siberian gulags or readily talk about the “Road Of Bones” to Magadan… And that is Putin’s wish that it remain so…

The NDP in Canada is a socialist party but it is the same as communism. People generally do not know anything about communism and even consider it a good idea. They have no clue as to the devastation it causes and the close to half a billion people that were killed by the communists in their own country. It’s what John Lennon’s song, “Imagine” was about, but is so ridiculous. Did John Lennon do any research on communism before he wrote this unrealistic song. If he did, he wouldn’t have written it sitting in his multi-million dollar mansion with words like imagine no possessions, it’s easy if you try….

The people who support Communism wouldn’t last very long living under this regime.

Since the early 1930s, Communists have been infiltrating our Educational Systems. After WW2 this 5th column of Communist’s increased to all Western Countries.

There are an awful lot of people out there, who have an evil seed planted in their minds, who think Communism is not really bad.

Astute observation, Allan.

The fact that the left cannot see the history of murder and oppression of Communism attests to the intellect of the average leftist/socialist.

They rightfully hate Nazism, but do not hate an even greater evil. … “Oh, but we will do communism properly!” … dunces

Has a familiar ring to it: Muslim “extremists” are a perversion of True" islam.

This is why they removed history from education. They don’t want the younger generations to see the horrors that await them.

So true. Freedom allows for the festering of communist ideologies in a total state of ignorance. If our youth saw the actual grinding horror and fear in communist countries, they would see this differently. Instead we subject them to professors and high schools that wax eloquent of the utopian ideology of a communist state. A polish immigrant once told me that she felt so free here. We need to cherish that.
