Good crap, another moron who tries to compare Trump to Hitler. Do you know any history? Do you actually know anything about Hitler and the Nazis? The answer is no, you don't. Because if you did, it would take a truly self-serving, shameful person to try to make the comparison.

And yet this same twit supports socialism. Stalin just by himself killed more people than Hitler did. Add in Lenin, Pol-pot, Mao, Castro, North Korea. I am certainly not downplaying Hitler, he was evil and murderous, but this lie that Trump is like Hitler is coming from the mouth of some one who supports an ideology that has killed millions (and all under one century)

Well stated. The irony of people like AOC and others making the Trump / Hitler comparison, while they support a form of govt that has oppressed, tortured, and killed so many millions, puts their ignorance and stupidity on full display.

The Holodomor, Katyn Massacre, Gulags, are but a few of the atrocities that Stalin's Communist state committed. Stalin's communist regime is responsible for around 20 million deaths.
But you will never hear public schools teach about his atrocities. My school didn't. There was one guy in school who told me that Stalin killed more of his people than Hitler did. He didn't tell me much more than that but no teacher ever said that much about Stalin. Hitler was the only bad guy who ever lived and "Uncle Joe" doesn't even get mentioned for his atrocities.
If other schools are the same it's no wonder why younger generations have such a hard on about living in a communist society!
They think everyone will get the same everything and all will be equal. Just a beautiful utopia. They will all STARVE equally! Famine is communists greatest weapon against their people. But have fun getting this across to people who has a very unhealthy fondness of communism.

no love for communism it has proven itself a failure but your claims of 20 million are way out.... unless you are counting the Russians that died fighting the Germans in WWII, which i would insist died because the Germans invaded Russia in 1941.
As for schools and the US, you must be under 20 as the amount of cold war propaganda against the Soviet Union was non stop in the US during the Cold War. Obviously you went to a bad school and are not able to research for yourself.

Mao killed more than 20 million. And the cold war was a long time ago. Higher education is filled with communist sympathizers. You've obviously been out of the loop for a long time.

Well 20 million seems to be the number that keeps popping up. Like with the 6 million in the Holocaust. Of course there is also people who says 6 million is too high or it just didn't happen. I wasn't there on either one and if somehow I was I would most likely lose count. This is the Soviet Union we are talking about. They lie and cover things up. Their own people had no idea how many troops died in order to defend Moscow and other places. Stalin tried to blame Katyn on the Germans and then they was prohibiting further investigation. The allied prisoners, liberated by the Russians, agreed to be released in the Yalta agreement that screwed over Poland and the Cossacks was never released.
The number could very well be more than 20 million.
If we was to consider the number of people who was replaced, had their lands seized, etc. The numbers would definitely be much more.
I graduated in 2012. Not that long ago but I am older than 20. And how is one going to look up something they had no idea existed? If I tell you to look up a one-eyed-one-horned flying purple people eater and you never heard of such a thing would you have thought to look it up on your own?
I was under the impression that the Holocaust was the only mass genocide as well. There was one teacher senior year who showed us a movie about the Rwanda genocide. You can imagine my shock to learn there was more genocides other than just the Holocaust. I never thought to look anything like that up while I was in school and it was never mentioned. Other than Rwanda with that one teacher, I was never taught anything about other atrocities besides the Holocaust.
I see where Sydney B mentioned Mao. Never heard of him while in school either. And I still don't know much about him.
Yes Hitler invaded the Soviet Union and we shouldn't have assisted the communists as much as we did. We should have just let them fight it out. Why did France and England only declare war on Germany for Germany's invasion / occupation of Poland when Russia did the exact same thing? Stalin was doing a military build up at the time and it's very likely he had his own plans of invading Europe. Hitler took him by surprise and gained the initiative with operation Barbarossa.
As General Patton said, "We may have been fighting the wrong enemy (Germany) all along. But while we're here (on the Soviet border), we should go after the bastards now, 'cause we're gonna have to fight 'em eventually."
That wasn't mentioned either.

Obviously you have not done your research either: https://www.nybooks.com/articles/2011/03/10/hitler-vs-stalin-who-killed-more/

Even if you add up the famine in Ukraine to the deaths in Gulags and purges of Stalin, Hitler's actions still beat him. Maybe you didn't learn history at school or it is not taught in your area, but it was Germany than annexed Austria, then the Sudetenland, then the whole of Czechoslovakia, then attacked Poland which started WWII, then after defeating France, launched Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet Union. None of those actions were peaceful and in all of them many people died. (This is before we get to the holocaust and other atrocities against civilians) The actions of Germany directly led to the deaths of 25 million plus people, yes Stalin was bad and a murderous bastard but Hitler's policies beat him out on pure numbers.
