White House Communications Director Anita Dunn Praises Mao

| by FRC

President Obama's White House Director of Communications, Anita Dunn, is trying to say her graduation speech praising the late Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong was all "tongue in cheek." Really? Judge for yourself:

She says in the clip that the communist leader, the worst mass murderer in human history, is who she "turn[s] to most." In the history of America , I can't think of a single, more radical statement than this one.

The Black Book of Communism
, which was edited by Stephane Courtois and a number of fellow French leftists, is the best resource for the crimes, terror, and repression of communism. It is widely respected and viewed as authoritative because no one can impugn the motives--or the careful research--that supports this great work of truth. Here's just one short passage: "Excluding the deficit in births... the loss of life linked to the famine in the years 1959-1961 was somewhere between 20 million and 43 million people. The lower end of the range is the official figure used by the Chinese government since 1988."

Even the communist regime in Beijing acknowledges that 20 million of their fellow Chinese died under the dictatorship of Mao Zedong. Twenty million starved to death in just two years. Have we ever had an administration staffed with people so indifferent to human suffering, so ignorant of history, so simultaneously callow and callous? Where does Obama find these people? Unfortunately, prestigious universities are turning out thousands of them.
