I'm searching for a quote by a prominent Weimar politician about the liberals who equate Soviet style Communism to genocidal German national socialism where he (correctly) proclaims that the equivalation of the two systems "inadvertently" betrays a preference for fascism. I can't attribute the quote properly therefore cannot give appropriate historical context to my ideological opponents (mostly within my family). I just want to own the libs I'm related to who say "stalin was worse" on pure ideological instinct by giving them a source who is politically aligned with them.
r/ChapoTrapHouse and r/MoreTankieChapo have both been banned by the Reddit admins, and we're probably not far behind, but we want to delay the inevitable for as long as possible. In the past few months there has been an noticeable upsurge in what would be classified as "hate speech" on this subreddit, namely wishing death upon right-wing politicians affected by Coronavirus such as Boris Johnson, Jair Bolsonaro and Jeanine Anez, as well as the usual stuff like "kulaks deserved worse", "landlords deserved worse", "gusanos deserved worse" etc. Obviously the admins don't actually care about this stuff and are simply looking for any excuse to purge communists from Reddit entirely, but nonetheless the mods of r/communism would like to reiterate that comments which call for killing people will be removed and you will be banned for posting them, let's not make the same mistakes.
You guys are so utterly DUMB I can’t even deal with it mentally. You want all of your rights taken away? #negativeIQ

Not a communist myself but a friend said that the Soviet Union did not wish to spread through the globe. That sounds incorrect when you read the Communist Manifesto, that would be my understanding. Is my reading correct?
China has 100 billionaires in their allegedly Communist Party. The country produces billionaires at a faster rate than any other country. There are suicide nets outside of some of the factories. It seems to me like there is no sign of anything close to socialism in China, yet people on here constantly defend them. Why?
Ive heard many takes on the idea of Stalinism and Stalinists like that it is just war communism, that it reflects the cult of personality surrounding him, or the idea that he created a russian nationalist idea of communism. I personally sometimes call myself a Stalinist or a tankie, because I've read a quite bit of literature from stalin and other ml revolutionaries and think that stalin did some pretty great things within the ussr. Often these labels get put on ML's (like myself) which are often the people who ironically call them but i feel like they dont actually have any basis in reality.
What is up with y’all and calling every critique of a “communist” country propaganda?? My dude, I’m not getting fed CIA Propaganda because I think that China isn’t a communist or socialist country
