wait, did they legitimately just use wartime casualties as a justification for painting Mussolini as a worse figure? There are loads of better things to look at, predominately his reign in Italy and how he handled dissenting opinions, or how absolutely useless he was as a leader.
If we’re to use wartime casualties as a beacon for a person’s “badness”, then literally every wartime leader is practically just Hitler - regardless of what they believed in. You could argue with this logic that Lincoln was worse than Hitler, because Lincoln’s war was one of the bloodiest in history.
Not to mention that Mussolini was just carrying on the policy of colonialism of Italy, that wasn’t their first rodeo in Ethiopia.
whats yours all opinion on jacobins. is there anything i should know?
They’re pro-imperialist / regime change socdems. Their magazine is written by USers, for USers, to make themselves feel superior to those evil “authoritarians” in the global south.
Are you asking about the Jacobins (of France) or about the magazine called “Jacobin”?
i would guess the tweet is from the magazine right?
Yes. So, you want to know about the magazine? It presents itself as a socialist magazine. But actually it expresses support for western imperialists’ rightist coup attempts in countries like China, Venezuela, or Belarus’. Here an article by the Grayzone about a conference they organized together with some others: https://thegrayzone.com/2019/07/06/dsa-jacobin-iso-socialism-conference-us-funded-regime-change/ Jacobin magazine published articles in support of the Hong Kong and Belarus’ “protests”, and an editor of that magazine wrote an opinion piece for the New York Times saying that “socialists don’t want Biden to lose” the US election.
(You can search for “Jacobin” here on this instance some more examples of what’s wrong with them: https://lemmygrad.ml/search/q/Jacobin/type/All/sort/TopAll/page/1 )

Stalin’s mentioned because Jacobin represents the Anti-Communist Left in the west. They don’t care what the war was about, or that Stalin’s a propagandized figure in western media, they just wanna convince their readers that Marxism-Leninism is on par with Nazism or any other vile ideology.
Liberals say a lot of stupid things. Post incidences here.
