Watch: there are going to be more examples coming out of Republicans quoting Chairman Mao. Anyone seriously interested in global events and politics will have read Mao’s writings, and I really hate to tell you this — but it’s not all sheer evil.
What Mao did in China and the policies he enacted that resulted in mass murder — that was evil. I agree on that. What he wrote about politics was often perceptive in the same way Machiavelli’s writing was perceptive.
