communist hatred on yahoo answers?

I know america was virtually at war with the ussr fairly recently but whenever anoyone voices a commie sounding opinion on yahoo answers they get shouted to the floor by american users who mostly dont actually know what communists are but where influenced by US propaganda. The ussr when under stalin and after him (but not before) is a terrible example of cummunism as is china and parts of korea. In india (rebel states) and cuba are much better examples. So basically can someome please explain to me why, without saying things like communists suck or they stand against freedom explain rationally why the us users detest reds?

Update:

TD did i not just say that china was a bad example of a communist country did you read this or did you just instantly start ranting?

    if you think there's a prevalence of anti-communist sympathies on yahoo -- ask a question about atheism. that will get the hate-mongers boiling.

    Lets start with addressing some ignorance here

    1. For starters pure Communism has never been practiced anywhere in the world so has never "failed"

    2. The reason Cuba lives in poverty is because of a unfair US trade barrier that prevents practically all Imports and Exports other than cigars

    3. True while Communism is a failed system, democratic socialism (not communism) is what is practiced in Europe and works perfectly fine

    4. You all think America is so high and mighty but last time I checked America is:

    22nd in the world in education (behind mostly Socialist countries)

    87th in health care (Behind mostly Socialist Countries)

    5. Sweden is considered one of the highest qualities of life and its Socialist, imagine that!

    6. Stalin and Castro were dictators, which is the opposite of Communism, where the working class (proletariat) are in power which make the USSR and Cuba degenerated workers states, and by no means Communist.

    I live in America and my mind has not been swayed by American Propaganda. Why don't you go read a book rather than foxnews.com to get your economic information. By the way for your information Neo-Conservatism shares many basic ideals with Trotskyism.

    Communism is the antithesis of what America stands for. America is based upon a capitalist system and believes the marketplace (for ideas as well as goods and services) provides, by far, the best and most reliable avenue to ensure efficient and free trade of ideas and goods. Communism, on the other hand, does not recognize that some things are more valouable than others and is simply destined to fail. By hte way, Cuba, India and Korea are not true communist areas either. Frankly, one will never be able to exist. The closest will be a dictatorship or aristocracy.

    Cuba is a GOOD example of Communism? Weren't they supported by the USSR? What is so darn good about Cuba anyway? All I ever see is that Cubans want to leave or get Castro out. They have no freedom of expression.

    There have been something like seven or eight communist regimes in the world, and ALL of them sucked about as much as Stalin. Communists make no room for human rights or individual freedom or self-determination. And if that's not the answer you like, tough, that's still the answer.

    Communism as as far Left as you can get basically. It is a failed policy, and noone should be so far down on one end of the political spectrum. That is Communism (the Ultra Left) and Fascism (the Ultra Right). There are many levels in between, like your Moderates, Conservatives, Liberals, Neo-Conservatives, Libertarians, they all fall into place somewhere on the political spectrum.

    Anyway, if your so far down on one side, your going to have many problems, and just look at Communism, it has failed all over the place in Eastern Europe, and in Asia.

    Because the main communists that Americans (like myself) are exposed to are those of the Cold war, primarily Stalin and Lenin.

    Communism has killed millions and it has failed all over the world..only the dying decrepit Castro still clings to Marx's rantings. Cuba is a s hole. China has already moved to a market economy.

    I think that people should have a negative view on communism, especially since Stalin killed 20 million people in the time of his leadership.

    Communism is disgusting wherever it was practised. Communism is just a particularly vicious form of fascism. It is just like NAZIsm.

    Castro has tortured and murdered lots of people.

    Millions have died because of Communism, but there are always some really stupid people who cannot learn from history.
