The Silent Voices of Stalin's Soviet Holocaust and Mao's Chinese Holocaust

A great article by Timothy D. Naegele in about what I feel is an INTENTIONALLY ignored political fact ...
Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung were the most ruthless killers of their own people in the 20th Century, and perhaps in the entire history of mankind.

They were responsible for the world’s deadliest holocausts—or the mass destruction of human beings—yet their victims have never been identified or honored. It is time for the silent voices of those who died to be heard, and for these human tragedies of epic proportions to be recognized fully.

The famous Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal once spoke about the duty owed by survivors of the Nazi Holocaust to Jews and non-Jews alike to insure that other holocausts did not occur again, and of course he was correct. Memorials have been erected to those who died at the hands of Adolf Hitler’s thugs. However, those noncombatants who were killed by Japan prior to and during World War II, and by the Khmer Rouge under Pol Pot in Cambodia, and in Africa and elsewhere are forgotten.
I wonder why these democides (not a spelling error -- do research on democide) have been ignored? Reason, for discussion:

The socialist and communist sectors of the US (the media, Hollywood, etc) don't want the handiwork of their favorite systems to be known. Walter Duranty of the New York Times ignored the slaughter of 10 to 12 million Ukranians by Josef Stalin in 1932 -- 1933, and admitted to the US Ambassador in Berlin that he was the tool of Soviet Propaganda. Was he fired? no.. He won the Pulitzer Prize.
