I am sure this is something that many have noticed. They hate Trump for obvious reasons and love to **** on America's founding fathers for owning slaves and such yet they will glorify Stalin, Che Guevara, Mao Zedong, Castro and friends. All of which did FAR worse than even viewing by today's standards is ANYTHING the aforementioned did. Yet let's talk about how evil and horrible and disgusting all those guys from 200 years ago were.

I've never heard anyone Stalin, and haven't seen anyone defend Mao since before I was born.

Since you are just making things up, why not throw in Darth Vader, Voldemort, and Sauron??

Uhh..Have you not seen the news? Look at how in Canada Justin Trudeau praised Castro after he died, as well as other countries.

Conservatism, doesn't have dictators and tyrants. That crap is culled quickly.
It ain't my choice... It's yours.

No one speaks of such things that I am aware. I believe that this is a straw man argument.

On the other hand the comment may innocently reflect an over-active imagination.

You have short term memory loss!
Right after Obama took office, several of his cabinet appointees were praising Mao.
Anita Dunn, Obamas communications gal, got behind a podium and went on and on about Mao.

He was also widely criticized for having done so.

How many dictators has Trump praised? (Pro tip: Google is your friend.)
