Communism and the Coronavirus

Written by Andrew Linn on April 6, 2020

With over one million people being infected with the coronavirus (including over 58,000 dead), various guidelines and precautions are being encouraged or mandated in order to halt the spread of this pandemic.

But these guidelines and precautions haven’t stopped a bunch of spring breakers from vacationing in places like Florida, Mexico, etc. And apparently a significant portion have contracted the coronavirus while on vacation and brought it back with them.

No doubt a majority of these spring breakers are millennials. And no doubt a majority of them have a favorable view of socialism (which is practically communism with manners). And some of them have a favorable view of communism as well. In fact, Paul Kengor mentions in his book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Communism that he was given a t-shirt by one of his former
students which stated “Communism has only killed 100 million people. Why not give it another shot?”

While some estimates put the death toll created by communism at 100 million, some estimates suggest even higher numbers.

Needless to say, communists do not care much for human life. In fact, they are obsessed with death. For example, when Joseph Stalin was asked how long he was going to continue killing people, he replied “when it is no longer necessary”.

Che Guevara would later make a similar statement.

Which brings me to the People’s Republic of China with a population of over one billion people. It also has the world’s largest military, along with a stockpile of nuclear weapons. In addition, the Chinese have engaged in cyberwarfare and space-based warfare.

Of course, the pandemic appears to be the result of negligence in China’s wet markets and not biological warfare as some people have speculated. But China’s handling of the situation demonstrates the indifference and incompetence that occur within communist regimes. It is also another indicator of how the communists value human life, especially since Mao Zedong’s communist revolution in China resulted in millions of deaths. And the death toll would

continue during his reign, particularly with the Great Leap Forward and the
Cultural Revolution.

It should also be noted that Mao Zedong did not fear the possibility of nuclear war. As he once stated to Nikita Khrushchev and other communist leaders in 1957: “We shouldn’t be afraid of atomic bombs and missiles. No matter what kind of war breaks out- conventional or thermonuclear- we’ll win. As for China, if the imperialists unleash war on us, we may lose more than three hundred million people. So what? War is war. The years will pass, and we’ll get to work
producing more babies than ever before.”

Fortunately, Khrushchev and the other communist leaders did not share Mao’s viewpoint. Nor did Khrushchev share the views of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara when they advocated nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis, which was partly why Khrushchev removed the Soviet Union’s nuclear missiles from Cuba.

Meanwhile, there have been toilet paper shortages in some areas of the United States due to the pandemic. But it pales in comparison to the shortage of toilet paper (and other goods for that matter) in the socialist nation of Venezuela. In addition, unemployment has increased while liberals continue to push their leftist agenda.

So China, the world’s most populous communist nation (which claims to be advancing the cause of the working class) has actually hurt the working class worldwide, due to its negligence in handling the outbreak of the coronavirus.

And that is what you get when you live in a communist regime.

Also, if you or someone you know has been infected by the coronavirus, you or them can contact the Berman Law Group in Boca Raton since they are putting together a class-action lawsuit against China. And there’s a chance they will succeed in doing so. So feel free to sue those commie bastards. In fact, I encourage you to do so.
