So do neither of us have the high ground?
    Not if you're a Stalinist, no.

    Stalin slaughtered his own people regardless of race, while Hitler murdered primarily Jews.

    I suppose that is a difference, if you want to split hairs.

    Stalin was anti-Semitic much like Hitler was, and much of his persecution was aimed at Jews. He just didn't make it a primary point of his propaganda.

    As far as sheer body count goes, Stalin's was higher.

    BTW I think the great man theory of history is BS.

    A lot of the people murdered in each instance where victims because willing executioners existed who took advantage of the prevailing political circumstance.
