Communist mass-murderer Mao Zedong, "Chairman Mao", "The Great Helmsman" (Tse-Tung can also be spelt Zedong. In translation the name means 'To Shine on the East'.)

Mao Zedong (26 December 1893 – 9 September 1976) was a Chinese military and political dictator and ruthless mass-murderer, who led the Communist Party of China (CPC) to victory against the Kuomintang (KMT) in the Chinese Civil War aided by the Soviets and Americans, and was the leader of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) from its establishment in 1949 until his death in 1976. He is also responsible for the greatest number of deaths known by any leader against his own people, and for unmeasurable cultural and economical destruction in China.


Mao in 1949

Bolshevists and their lackeys regard Mao as one of the most important figures in modern world history. Mao is still a controversial figure today, over thirty years after his death. He is ironically held in high regard in still Bolshevistic China (2012), where he is often portrayed as "a great revolutionary and strategist" who eventually defeated Chiang Kai-shek in the Chinese Civil War, and transformed the country into a major power through his policies.

Mao's Marxist communism entered China via Russian Stalinism, and High up in the Political Department of the Red Army in China were also the two communist Jews, W. N. Levitschev and J. B. Gamarnik, who in 1936 was its head and had a powerful influence on Mao and his policies. Jews had procured a prominent influence on China long before this when Jew, David Sassoon, and family established the insidious Opium Trade in China from 1832 until he died in 1864 which left millions addicted to Opium and made the Jewish Sassoon family famously wealthy.

Also the Soviet Jew Mikhail Borodin is well known for weapon delivery and advising the Chinese government between 1923 and 1927.

Many of Mao's socio-political and economic programs such as the Great Leap Forward (1959–1961) and the Cultural Revolution (1966–1976) are revealed by critics from both within and outside China for causing severe damage to the culture, society, economy and foreign relations of China, as well as enormous and unnecessary loss of life; a peacetime death toll in the tens of millions (often estimated from 65,000,000 to over 100,000,000) through brutality, mass starvation from disastrous economic and grossly incompetent agricultural schemes, and by the wholesale murderers of dissidents and opposing groups.

Although still officially venerated in China due to widespread propaganda and the lack of education with the majority peasant population, his influence has been largely overshadowed by the political and economic reforms of Deng Xiaoping and other leaders since his death.

Due to the survival of Bolshevism in China, in 2011 Mao is also ironically recognized as a poet and calligrapher more than a mass murderer and incompetent leader.

Red Terror

Late in his career, Chairman Mao took a radical turn. Khrushchev’s 1956 “secret speech” against the memory of Stalin had made Mao fear that China would one day take a “capitalist road” and seek détente with the West. In order to forestall this deviationism, Mao launched the Great Leap Forward (1958–1962). The Chinese people were conscripted into a war against nature, forced onto disastrous agricultural collectives, compelled to build useless steel furnaces in their backyards—shrines to a cargo cult of industrialization. Tens of millions of people died in the famine that resulted. Mao’s legitimacy was shaken by the famine. To reassert control, he launched the “Socialist Education Campaign.” Its slogan, “Never Forget Class Struggle,” was a call to seek out and destroy class enemies. Mao attacked schools as redoubts of bourgeois intellectuals and exams as a means of class reproduction. He suggested that students should nap through lectures and cheat on exams. He said that the Ministry of Culture would be better described as the “Ministry of Foreign Dead People.” Five million party members were punished and tens of thousands were driven to their deaths. But this was nothing compared to the Cultural Revolution. In 1966, Mao lost patience with the party structure as a means of revolutionary action. He formed a committee to promote a directed form of anarchy, violence from ­below approved by the powers that be. The Cultural Revolution Group was launched on June 1 with a People’s Daily editorial: “Sweep Away All Monsters and Demons!” The group was led by a sycophant named Lin Biao, but its most iconic member was Mao’s fourth wife, Jiang Qing—who, Dikötter suggests, had once sublimated her sexual jealousy at Mao’s ­infidelities into hypochondria but found a more exuberant outlet in ­political terror. [...]
In August of 1966, Mao and Lin Biao directed the Red Guards to destroy old ideas and old culture. The emboldened students put up big character posters announcing their intention to smash not just the ideas but the material artifacts of bourgeois decadence and imperialism. They attacked ordinary people in the street, “forcibly cutting their hair, slashing narrow trouser legs, chopping off high heels.” Shops, libraries, cemeteries, and holy sites—including pagodas, churches, and mosques—were destroyed. Statues, tombstones, and books were smashed or burned. Pets—considered bourgeois decadence—were massacred. Homes were looted and vandalized. State functionaries confiscated the finest items, including many priceless antiquities. The Red Guards got away with this behavior for a little more than two years because the Cultural Revolution Group had praised them and ordered the army and the party to stand down. By 1968, nearly everyone had tired of the Red Guards’ aggression, and when Mao sent a box of mangos to a work team that had decided to discipline the Red Guards, all of China was elated. Finally, the madness could be resisted. People began to observe a cult of mangos, complete with icons, reliquaries, and pilgrimages. Worshipping a dictator’s box of fruit may sound bizarre, and it was, but this shows just how relieved the Chinese people were that an army of brats would no longer have free reign. At the end of 1968, the Red Guards were sent to the country to learn from the peasants—a euphemism for internal exile.[1]

Mass murders

According to historians who studied Soviet archives before and after the fall of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin likely killed between eleven million and 20 million people. However, given the widespread and often unrecorded deaths of the Stalin years, it’s certainly possible that that number is even higher. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the literary giant who wrote harrowingly about the Soviet gulag system, claimed the true number of Stalin’s victims might have been as high as 60 million. Most other estimates from reputed scholars and historians tend to range from between 20 and 60 million.[2]

With this understood, the Soviet Union appears the greatest megamurderer of all, apparently killing near 61,000,000 people. Stalin himself is responsible for almost 43,000,000 of these. Most of the deaths, perhaps around 39,000,000 are due to lethal forced labor in gulag and transit thereto. [...] Then there are the lesser megamurderers, such as North Korea and Tito's Yugoslavia. Obviously the population that is available to kill will make a big difference in the total democide, and thus the annual percentage rate of democide is revealing. By far, the most deadly of all communist countries and, indeed, in this century by far, has been Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. Pol Pot and his crew likely killed some 2,000,000 Cambodians from April 1975 through December 1978 out of a population of around 7,000,000. This is an annual rate of over 8 percent of the population murdered, or odds of an average Cambodian surviving Pol Pot's rule of slightly over just over 2 to 1. In sum the communist probably have murdered something like 110,000,000, or near two-thirds of all those killed by all governments, quasi-governments, and guerrillas from 1900 to 1987. Of course, the world total itself it shocking. It is several times the 38,000,000 battle-dead that have been killed in all this century's international and domestic wars. Yet the probable number of murders by the Soviet Union alone--one communist country-- well surpasses this cost of war. And those murders of communist China almost equal it.[3]

That title of history’s most murderous dictator belongs, according to many historians, to Mao Zedong. According to The Washington Post, his “Great Leap Forward” policies between 1958 and 1962 resulted in the deaths of at least 45 million people,[4] other sources estimate 65 to 100 million murdered.

Private life

While China has terrible hygiene, Mao had worse.

The Private Life of Chairman Mao: The Memoirs of Mao's Personal Physician is a memoir by Li Zhisui, Mao Zedong's personal doctor. It explains how:[5][6][7][8]

  1. Mao rarely bathed. Even if he did, he disliked soap and water method. Rather, he preferred to be scrubbed with steaming towels, an old Asian custom.
  2. Mao did not brush his teeth. He preferred to rinse his mouth with teas, which was also old Asian custom. Apparently, his teeth were decayed.
  3. Mao did not like flush toilets. For years after he became the most powerful man in China, he defecated in the palace gardens. Finally Zhou Enlai was able to convince him to use an indoor bathroom.
  4. Mao often had an assortment of body lice and skin infections. He often just dropped his pants in public to scratch himself.
  5. Mao did manage to sleep with thousands of women. He had huge orgies in his customized bed. He was very crude in his language, with an apparent obsession with flatulence. He also liked to make vulgar jokes to shock people. His doctor was chiding him about hygiene when Mao informed him that when he was with girls, "I wash my prick in their c***s." He infected nearly 3.000 women by sexual relations, because he had trichomoniasis and genital herpes.
