    Re: Who's worse: Genghis Khan, or Hitler?

    Just saw this thread, and I don't think it's been pointed out that some of you may be dissing your direct ancestor. 1/200 men (and presumably, women) are direct descendants of GK, and if your direct ancestors are originally from the area where GK rules, it's about a 10% chance.


    So somebody on this thread might be dissing great- great- grandpa.

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Yeah I can believe he took pleasure in torturing people, but I just wonder if he conquered the world so he could do it or if he just found that to be a perk of the job.

    I think he probably considered it a requirement of the job. Remember, we're talking a brute among brutes - he had to be brutish in order to keep them in line.

    Another example of a different kind of evil to Hitler's would be Eichmann, who seemed to have little personal investment in carrying out the holocaust but did so blithely under the impression that that's what a good soldier would do, and took pride in his efficiency.

    While WWII was the deadliest war in history, with between 40 and 72 million deaths, the Mongol conquests come close, having result in between 30 and 70 million deaths. And by worldwide population, the Mongol conquests were much deadlier, 17% vs. 1-3% of living people having been killed.

    List of wars and anthropogenic disasters by death toll - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Each man committed genocide on an unprecedented scale, but today Genghis Khan enjoys an amount of notoriety, akin to that given to Alexander the Great.

    So is one man more evil than the other? And if so, who?
    After watching the other side of Hitler in a series on youtube "Hitler - greatest story never told" I am convinced that Hitler was NOWHERE as bad as Zionist media makes him out to be. not perfect, but not any worse than Zionists considering the situation not told on MSM

    Probably because they know less about him, his victims, and methods. But the amount of people he killed, as a percentage of the global population, is pretty staggering and was no stranger to systemic slaughter of innocents, nor genocide

    That's all speculation.

    All we can really know for sure is that he had some good swimmers...
