Why Isn’t Communism as Hated as Nazism?

Why Isn’t Communism as Hated as Nazism?


When people describe particularly evil individuals
or regimes, why is it that they use the terms “Nazi” or “fascist,” but almost never
“communist?” Given the unparalleled amount of human suffering
communists have caused, why is “communist” so much less a term of revulsion than “Nazi?” Communists killed 70 million people in China,
more than 20 million people in the Soviet Union (not including about 5 million Ukrainians),
and almost one out of every three Cambodians. And communists enslaved entire nations in
Russia, Vietnam, China, Eastern Europe, North Korea, Cuba and much of Central Asia. They ruined the lives of well over a billion
people. So, why doesn’t communism have the same
terrible reputation as Nazism? Reason Number 1: There is, simply put, widespread
ignorance of the communist record. Whereas both right and left loathe Nazism
and teach its evil history, the left – and I’m talking about the left, not traditional
liberals like Harry Truman or John F. Kennedy – has never loathed communism. And since the left dominates academia, almost
no one teaches communism’s evil history. Reason Number 2: The Nazis carried out the
Holocaust. Nothing matches the Holocaust for pure evil. The rounding up of virtually every Jewish
man, woman, child, and baby on the European continent and sending them to die is unprecedented
and unparalleled. The communists killed far more people than
the Nazis, but never matched the Holocaust in the systemization of genocide. The uniqueness of the Holocaust and the enormous
attention rightly paid to it have helped ensure that Nazism has a worse name than communism. Reason Number 3: Communism is based on nice
sounding theories; Nazism isn’t. It’s based on heinous sounding theories. Intellectuals in general – including, of
course, the intellectuals who write history – are seduced by words – so much so, that
they deem actions as less significant than words. For that reason, they haven’t focused nearly
as much attention on the horrific actions of communists as they have on the horrific
actions of the Nazis. They dismiss the evils of communists as perversions
of “true communism.” But they regard Nazi atrocities (correctly)
as the logical and inevitable results of Nazism. Reason Number 4: Germans have thoroughly exposed
the evils of Nazism, have taken responsibility for them, and have attempted to atone for
them. Russians have not done anything similar regarding
Lenin’s or Stalin’s horrors. To the contrary, Lenin, the father of Soviet
communism, is still widely venerated in Russia. And as regards Stalin, as University of London
Russian historian Donald Rayfield puts it, “People still deny, by assertion or implication,
Stalin’s holocaust.” Even less so has China exposed the greatest
mass murderer and enslaver of them all, Mao Zedong. Mao remains revered in China. Every Chinese currency note has his picture
on it. Until Russia and China – and Vietnam, and
Cuba, and North Korea – acknowledge the evils their countries committed under communism,
communism’s evils will remain less known than the evils of the German state under Hitler. Reason Number 5: Communists murdered mostly
their own people. The Nazis, on the other hand, killed very
few fellow Germans. “World opinion” – that largely meaningless
and amoral term – deems the murder of members of one’s own group far less noteworthy than
the murder of outsiders. That’s why, for example, blacks killing
millions of fellow blacks in Africa elicits almost no attention from “world opinion.” And Reason Number 6: In the view of the left,
the last “good war” was World War II, the war against German Nazism and Japanese
fascism. The left does not regard wars against communist
regimes as “good wars.” For example, the American war against Vietnamese
communism is regarded as immoral, and the war against Korean communism – and its Chinese
communist backers – is simply ignored. Until the left, and all the institutions influenced
by the left, acknowledge how evil communism has been, we will continue to live in a morally
confused world. In the meantime, all good people owe it to
the victims of communism to learn what happened to them. Even worse than being murdered or enslaved
is a world that doesn’t even know that you were. I’m Dennis Prager.

    why did communis look bad
    it they fight Nazi And defeat them with alliance

  2. Perhaps you need a refresher course. The reason Communism isn't reviled as much is because it was created by Talmudic Jews, and was facilitated by the same Marxist and Zionist lunatics who control most of the global media, entertainment, public education, publishing houses, and all the other tentacles of propaganda that they control. The internationalist Jews HATED Orthodox Christian Russia, and tried to destroy Czar rule there for over a century. Communism, just like "Capitalism", are essentially both tools to destroy Christianity, which is the aim of the Talmudic Rabbi's who descended from the same Pharisees that Jesus kicked out of the temple for their usury schemes and their wickedness. You say the Russians killed their own, but that's just not accurate. If you read Solzhenitsyn, he specifically tells how most of the NKVD enforcers were Jews, NOT RUSSIANS, and they hated Russians, which is why they were picked for their brutality. Almost 75% of the original Bolshevik heads were Jews, including the mass murderers Yagoda and Kagonovich, and naturally Lev Bronstein (aka Trotsky) was the point man for the 1917 takeover, and where did he get all of his millions and his people from? From Wall Street banker Jacob Schiff, who hosted Trotsky in New York City (why else would a poor "Russian" revolutionary be riding around New York City in expensive carriages for 4 months?) and gave him 25 million in gold (1917 dollars) and NYC Jews who were trained in rebellion tactics. Naturally, Nazism and Fascism emerged to fight Bolshevism and international communism, which had violently taken over Bavaria in 1918 before the Freikorps wiped them out. Even as early as 1920, the Bolsheviks tried to conquer Europe when they invaded Poland, but were beat back by the brave Pols, who sadly could not drive back the Soviets 19 years later.

  3. What about slavery and colonialism practiced as state policy of US, its western and Arab middle east allies?
    What about the first Holocaust systematically wiping out the half of Iranian population after the first world war between 1917-1919?
    There are many systematic crimes which have been committed throughout history on behalf of western countries: Wiping out of native Indians in America combined with systematic slave trade forced imported from African continent.
    The destruction of native Indians on Canadian territory.
    Wiping out the native population of Australia, the Aboriginals.
    The problem is that western nations are very proud of their culture and denying systematically the historic facts of what they have done to other cultures and nations.
    It is easy to hide behind the protecting wall of democracy and condemn the rest of the world while denying your own historic mistakes.
    Even if the atrocities committed by Russian and Chinese deserve clear condemnation, it would be nice of western countries to become self critic, too and see what they have done to other cultures and nations.
    Only by doing so, we all as the entire human race would have the chance to survive and live a peaceful and harmonious life together.

  4. There's only one thing I want to point out and it is that not all people who claim to be communists committed atrocious actions themselves. (Not counting mao zedong, joseph stalin, etc, and their followers)

  5. First of all you consider moasim and Stalinism with communism. Ask any person on the left they will tell you Stalinism and moasim is bad.

  6. А есть ли различия между демонократией и социализмом? В одном случае РАБотаешь на дядю, в другом на общество и себя. Хватит врать! Фашизм и национал-социализм разные вещи. Фашизм был в Италии, а в Германии национал-социализм , плавно переделанный под фашизм.
    Союз здравомыслящего социалистического населения земли жив. Рим с римским правом и Англия с морским правом вертят миром как хотят не во благо населения земли. Всем добра и миропонимания!

  7. The real answer to the title of this video is that Jews composed 5% of the Russian population yet 70%of the Bolshevik leadership that killed more Christians than German Socialists killed Jews. Communism is Jewish.

    “Some call it Marxism – I call it Judaism.”
    Rabbi Stephen Samuel Wise, president of the American Jewish Congress and the World Jewish Congress
    =
    “Anti-Communism is Antisemitism.”
    Rabbi Stephen Samuel Wise, president of the American Jewish Congress and the World Jewish Congress

    Isn't it remarkable the Jew on the video omitted that?

  8. So why doesn't communism have the same terrible reputation as Nazism?

    Reason Number One: They have much better music.

  9. Reason number 7, communism was created by Jews, the same reason that "the holocaust", or any thing about it, can never be disputed without the disputer being shamed and vilified, in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

  10. A communist state has never actually existed, all of the so called ‘Communist’ countries, yet actually they were socialists, so do your research next time before making such a video

  11. Pretty much nazism or whatever they call it was more worst then communism cause when stalin did those things he took a new huge country and turned it to the strongest super power saved the world and died

  12. Why capitalists are not memes of evil? They enslaved the whole world and killed more than any regime and evil the world. Why Europeans are taken as demons or devils incarnated?

  13. You didn't mention the Russian Gulogs, Why did the Nazi Camps have 88 thousand survivors and the Russians had none? I would think a "Death Camp" would have no survivors, and a POW camp, thousands.

  14. Ehm They communist Killed 1 person every minute and stalin had the kill list as well that he wrote Every Day

  15. I love communism because of one person
    Stalin he's so amazing
    I love him
    Communism is so much better
    Then Nazism
    Because stalin was amazing
    Who cares if stalin killed more people Hitler killed them with intent
    Stalin is amazing
    I ripped my arm for him I
    Starve myself for him
    Hahaha
    Hitler was disgusting he made the swastika a bad sign and killed some people
    And … ok I don't care about what he did but he attacked stalin so I consider him terrible

  16. Adults have their reason to like communism, though some aren’t very good.

    Us millennials,

    “We never said it was good or bad, we just make fun of it with countryhumans and memes.”

  17. Because it's NOT at ALL AS BAD. Stop being dumb. Communism will make it's comeback in Eastern Europe and then the entire world. You have to wait and seeee.

  18. Why are you saying that everybody hates Communism more than half of Russians Wants U. S. S. S Back And old People much of them hates Democratic country they live in Moldova is total trash after their independence.

  19. History is written there is no more Soviet Union or else but Nazis committed war crimes and many terrible things much more terrible then Communists if you had to compare with Capitalism this would be something different but 20 Million people died because of Nazi Germany war crimes so please don’t discuss about shitty obvious things

  20. Hitler didn't kill his own people pssssh, where tf did he get this from?

    "Before the clock strikes 12, I will make sure every Jew has succumbed to death for a New Germany must be a clean Germany."

    Do your research Prager U 😂

  21. Because Communist are awesome , with creating superpowers and always causing donald trump to shit in his pants , and even nixon , all countries communist, you will find faster progress. Red Salute.

  22. Vietnamese here. In this country, the public is brainwashed deeply that they hardly know what happened. Ho, like Mao, did horrors and the VCP, like CCP, have been doing evil to people…without being exposed. They are confused because they are brainwashed to take the regime as equal to the nation. VCP is no Vietnam, is a regime that rules people living in the region.

    The purpose of this comment is for Vietnamese like me, who learn English, to read and know about the history and most importantly, to change their mind.

  23. Communism can never be bad mouthed by losers like this..These are nothing but propaganda against socialism, communism, which, without any doubt created a classless society in large portions of the world, thereby snatching power from landowners and giving power to the poor, the oppressed.

    Long live Revolution.

  24. communists will NEVER admit this but the soviet communists are RACISTS like the nazies were. They killed and deported and forceable assimilated turks, germans, uralics, balts, ukrainians and belarusians, jews even, ethnic groups from the caucasus mountains, and a plethora of other ethnic groups throughout the USSR. FACTS . So the communists are as bad as adolf hitler. #truth

  25. There is a museum about comminism in Budapest (Hungary,Europe) called the house of terror. As i am hungarian, 1956 was rough.

  26. Ok hear me out.

    I am just a kid who has a friend that suports communism.He talked me about it like it was a god idealogy that wants to share their resources whit every citizen.Some of you wont belive me but i was around 9 years old when he was telling me about communism and its leaders.And now i see the communism as a god way.Most of you will dissagree but think about it,i personaly think that Stalin was a bad guy even if I support communism but of he didnt make his people go to gulags very common and wasnt that rhutles leader, i bet world would look at communism in a better way.This is only in my option.Maybe its because of the leaders that promoted communism. If they were better communism whoud be at better state.I am gonna end how because it took me a while for this.

    Bye!😉

  27. Not to mention that all "communist" countries weren't actually communist at all, but socialist. Countries like Russia did adopt communism, but in practice, it was socialism. So socialism is the real evil, not communism!

  28. 12 August 1944 – Sant'Anna di Stazzema. A village in Tuscany (Italy).

    From 560 local villagers killed by Nazi’s, at least 107 were children (the youngest of whom, Anna Pardini, was only 20 days old).

    Evelina Berretti, a pregnant woman (one of the total eight pregnant women) had her stomach cut with a bayonet and her baby pulled out and killed separately.

  29. Why dont they write the evil history of America
    Like invading the most beautiful with the best military and the best healthcare in the Middle East for no reason
    IRAQ Americans killed and raped iraqi citizens for the oil
    Where are the weapons of mass destruction huh?

  30. Here’s the thing, COMMUNIST IS NOT NAZISM, and really communism isn’t like nazism or killing people, etc.
    Communism is really like people reaching equal rich, rich have to gave money to poor so they can reach equal rich, which failed.

  31. Lets just say this that communism killed off more people than the nazis. And both of them are very bad, but in my opinion communism was a lot worse.

  32. Why does Nazi Germans get blamed for their actions I'm not saying what they did is good but the soviets killed thousands of Mongolians Koreans Japanese Germans Romanians Bulgarians polish Hungarians and Czechoslovaks not including people who died because of communism which include vietmese Cubans angoligolns Congolese Somali Ethiopian Albanian Yugoslav Australian's south Koreans American's Cambodian and Laos most of whom died in hard labour and got tortured and show trials most never returning to their home country's and we all rember how Nazi Germany invaded Poland but we don't rember that the Soviet union did it at the same time and while the Nazis killed them quickly with gas the Soviets made them die from diesese cold and by beating them to deaths from johb

  33. Prager U is a cesspool of absolute stupidity. Communism has never existed maybe a good reason that its not viewed as nazism? The 2 biggest propagandists of the 20th century, the ussr and the usa both agreed on the same things but for different reasons. The United States called the soviet union communist as a cudgel to attack them for what they said they were, the ussr called themselves communist to try to gain legitimacy and distract from the top down totalitarian oppressive regime they were. Prager just regurgitates this nonsense as if its real. Why doesn't this idiot mention 500 years of colonialism?

  34. Лять вот это пропаганда уровня гебельса они плохие потому то плохие и поливать что США тоже не ангел и поливать что в Австралии шитали сколько японцев к ним приходят это Пипец так что пропаганда полная

  35. This video goes directly against their other video calling nazism “left wing”.

    Prager can’t even keep their own propaganda in order.

    What a bunch of amateurs.

  36. Here's thing for ya, 1929 America would like to have a word with ya.
    Why not teach just how bad Capitalism can be? Oh wait, they DO that as well. They teach the good and the bad of "All 3" (They show Stalinism,Maoism and other Bolshevik type governments really since communism never really happened since it involves a stateless, classless and currencyless society in Wich the workers collectively own the means of production). They teach when capitalism goes horribly wrong (The Great Depression), They teach what was going on in Germany from 1932 to 1945.

  37. The entire Eastern Europe was overrun first by the Nazi Germany, then by the Communist Soviet Union. Almost the entire Western Europe was also overrun by the Nazi Germany and Britain was attacked but never conquered. The Nazi Germany used its police state system on all people and destroyed Jews and "non-Aryans" while holding the conquered territory in both East and West. The Communist Soviet Union raged across the Eastern Europe and continued its iron rule there for the next 45 years, policing regular people for whatever excuses (dissident or criminal activities against the Motherland or the Communist Party or whatever), separating families, sending people to the gulag camps and forced labour, killing millions of their own citizens and people from the conquered nations.

    Pol Pot killed millions of people in Kampuchea.

    Mao Zedong turned China into Communism, killing hundreds of millions of people in the process. China is still one big police state and continues to "re-educate" its citizens in remote camp sites across the Western China. Their current president is nothing short of a dictator, invested with more power than any leader since the days of emperors of the ancient China.

    The Kim Dynasty in North Korea have oppressed, enslaved, tortured and killed its own citizens since the early 50's. I wonder how many people have died there annually.

    Horrible systems. All these crimes will come into light and all these terrible schemes and structures will be laid bare in the storming fire on the Last Day, when Lord Jesus Christ returns to gather His faithful people. Every conceivable crime will be paid back accordingly, every good deed will be paid bountifully when the King returns.

  38. Agreed. People forget what Communism did to the Romanov family. A lot of libraries in universities won’t carry the old gulag books to teach the young naive sheep.

  39. I agree with qll exept reason 6, i think that people think that ww2 was the last good war because it was a war set in the western world before the last empires fell and the nations where fighting for land, after that all the places where America went to fight were regarded as shitholes that the Americans invaded solely becasue they were communist.

  40. For Pete's sake, even the "Bible" that the Jews claim as their own,
    which is in itself a lie, proves that Jews Lie. Don't EVER believe what
    Jews write or say. Jeremiah 8:8, "'How can you say, "We are wise, for
    we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes
    has handled it falsely?" Do your own research, and then do it again.
    The truth is hidden, seek the esoteric and occult knowledge for truth.
    As for the Jews, they don't own it, and they don't speak it.

  47. Because the 1st Soviet Government was made up of 85% Jews. Bolshevism, communism, Masonic Lodges are all branches of Talmudic Judaism. And you are a very ignorant man or you are spreading lies about Hitler and National Socialism in favor of believing and spreading the lies of Jews that ran the Soviet government.

  51. Its good when every ideology is criticized for whatever evil its practitioners inflict upon the world, but some have it more due than others.

  52. Because the original communist idea wasn't evil, it was just criticism, criticism of exploitation of the workers class and proposals of how to fix it.. exploitation of the worker class was, especially in the 19th century, a huge problem.. nazism at it's core was based around racial superiority, antisemitism etc.. so yeah..that's why.. sure extremist communists caused as much deaths, but the idea at it's core was not a bad idea, just like for example christianity (which also accounts for millions of deaths)

  53. Why is not communism as hated as nazism? Because your propaganda cant stop people from seeing the truth. Because 70% of the facts you showed were false. Bcause the rich are scared of it, while the poor (who are the VAST majority) benefit from it. Because nazism and communism are as same as black and white. Thats why.
