The "Best and Brightest," Huh....

Walter Williams is a lot of fun to read.  But sometimes it's gruesome, too...

...The number of war dead pales in comparison with the number of people who lost their lives at the hands of their own governments. The late professor Rudolph J. Rummel of the University of Hawaii documented this tragedy in his book “Death by Government: Genocide and Mass Murder Since 1900.” Some of the statistics found in the book have been updated.

The People’s Republic of China tops the list, with 76 million lives lost at the hands of the government from 1949 to 1987. The Soviet Union follows, with 62 million lives lost from 1917 to 1987. Adolf Hitler’s Nazi German government killed 21 million people between 1933 and 1945. Then there are lesser murdering regimes, such as Nationalist China, Japan, Turkey, Vietnam, and Mexico.

According to Rummel’s research, the 20th century saw 262 million people’s lives lost at the hands of their own governments....

Got the picture?  The Communists win the Kill-em-All race by a mile.  So how do our "best and brightest" react?

...W.E.B. Du Bois, writing in the National Guardian in 1953, said, “Stalin was a great man;... George Bernard Shaw described [Hitler] as “a very remarkable man, a very able man....John Kenneth Galbraith visited Communist China and praised Mao and the Chinese economic system. Michel Oksenberg, President Jimmy Carter’s China expert, complained, “America [is] doomed to decay until radical, even revolutionary, change fundamentally alters the institutions and values.” He urged us to “borrow ideas and solutions” from China....Anita Dunn, President Barack Obama’s acting communications director in 2009, ... said, “Two of my favorite political philosophers [are] Mao Zedong and Mother Teresa.

Trust me, Mao and Mothere Teresa have NOTHING in common.  Anita Dunn is a dummy.

Anyhow, the "best and brightest" have a track record:  they love mass-killers who are in Government. 

Vote carefully.
