Does The Liberal Party think our PM shares Joesph Stalin's Worldview?


I don't accept the apology by the Liberal Party Web Team. Our Prime Minister is being compared to Joesph Stalin  and the assassination photo may have made the finalist panel.

Calculating the number of victims 

Researchers before the 1991 dissolution of the Soviet Union attempting to count the number of people killed under Stalin's regime produced estimates ranging from 3 to 60 million.[70] After the Soviet Union dissolved, evidence from the Soviet archives also became available, containing official records of the execution of approximately 800,000 prisoners under Stalin for either political or criminal offenses, around 1.7 million deaths in the Gulags and some 390,000 deaths during kulak forced resettlement – for a total of about 3 million officially recorded victims in these categories.[71]

Making light of the human suffering at the hands of Communism through Joesph Stalin is unacceptable and may be officially endorsed by the Liberal Party. Is there no level the party won't stoop to?

Being reduced to twenty seats at the next election would be too generous.

Update: thank you Patrick Ross for the reminder


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As of March 2008, Ukraine and nineteen other governments[20] have recognized the actions of the Soviet government as an act of genocide. The joint statement at the United Nations in 2003 has defined the famine as the result of cruel actions and policies of the totalitarian regime that caused the deaths of millions of Ukrainians, Russians, Kazakhs and other nationalities in the USSR[21]. On 23 October 2008 the European Parliament adopted a resolution[22] that recognized the Holodomor as a crime against humanity.[23]
