    What is "Rich"? and who's "brainwashed" me? Are their names Bezos, Zuckerberg, Gates, Buffet, Soros and dozens of other Prog Billionaires demanding we continue the policy of open borders and globalization?

    Horseshit. All that was necessary to be tortured and murdered by the Cheka was to be perceived as being a potential threat to the Bolshevik regime.

    Rich people.

    No, more like Trump, Walton, Forbes, Koch: people who've convinced you that the poor - who have absolutely zero power or influence over anyone - are the source of your problems.

    Horseshit. All that was necessary to be tortured and murdered by the Cheka was to be perceived as being a potential threat to the Bolshevik regime.
    Which required you to have a substantial amount of money and/or power. You think some chump mopping floors at a hospital for a living is going to be perceived as a threat to anyone?

    BTW, the high end of the estimated death toll is 1.5M. The low end is 10K.

    What isn't normally taught in history is the fact that there was a corresponding White Terror - the death toll is pretty firm at 300K. We don't talk about that in the US, though, because we supported the White movement.

    Do you know what the death toll was for the French Revolution? Just under 17K (firm), putting it higher than the low end of the Red Terror. But, of course, we don't vilify the French revolutionaries because they weren't communist.
