Killed hundreds of millions of his own people and I'm not exaggerating when I say that.

Starved (unintentionally), executed, persecuted, banished, and destroyed millions of lives.

If they revere Mao, then they're all screwy in the head.

Thank you Mao, for destroying what China could have been... Thank you CCP for continuing to prevent China's potential of growth and inspiration in a GOOD way. Nobody in the world trusts China's "diplomacy" and global ideals.

"..and ran it virtually uncontested until his death on Sept. 9, 1976."

This is simply wrong. I stopped reading after this.
