    President Obama on Monday pardoned 78 people and granted another
    153 commutations, amounting to the most acts of clemency by a
    U.S. president ever in a single day. White House Counsel Neil
    Eggleston added that Obama is considering clemency for
    individuals who have contributed significantly to human progress
    by "bending the arc of the moral universe toward justice" – even
    though they were not U.S. citizens and are dead.

    Presidential "posthumous pardons" are scheduled to be extended
    to such legendary international icons as Joseph Stalin, Mao
    Zedung, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh, the Kim dynasty of North Korea,
    and Che Guevara along with his comrade-in-arms, the recently
    deceased Fidel Castro. Eggleston revealed that Hollywood
    celebrities were consulted on this decision and concurred. Jane
    Fonda, for example, spoke warmly about Ho Chi Minh. Michael
    Moore felt certain Stalin and the others would have voted for
    Hillary Clinton.

    According to Obama, these legendary figures have been unfairly
    maligned by the sensationalist right-wing media. Slanderous
    language such as "mass murder," "show trials," "political
    repression" and "concentration camps" has been used to downplay
    the highly significant accomplishments of these leaders. Stalin,
    for example, helped defeat Hitler and liberate half of Europe.
    Mao’s Cultural Revolution led to the emergence of a China whose
    billions kept the Obama Administration in power for eight years.

    Yes, President Obama is aware that mistakes were made – "you
    can't make an omelet without breaking eggs" – but nevertheless
    is convinced that these leaders were “on the right side of
    history.” Obama recalls with fondness the many hours he spent at
    Harvard reading and re-reading Mao’s Little Red Book, which he
    still considers a more important influence than The Federalist

    Mr. Eggleston concluded with the comment that these presidential
    pardons are intended to help advance the righteous struggle of
    the oppressed masses around the world. Media organizations such
    as CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post can be
    trusted to make sure that the initiatives launched by Stalin and
    Mao and continued by Obama are irreversible despite the election
    of Donald J. Trump.

    Such meaningless buzzwords as "mass murder," "show trials,"
    "political repressions," and "concentration camps" are only
    aimed to distract the public from real issues and from the
    greater message of social change they represent.

    Opinion polls indicate that many Americans continue to view
    these historic figures more negatively than positively, but
    experts say this is only because many among the polled segments
    still remember the subjects' virulent anti-Americanism and
    occasional military confrontations with the U.S.

    However, Barack Obama believes that personal grudges should be
    beneath the station of the U.S. President, who must discern the
    "arc of history" and be able to bend it toward the greater good.

    These presidential pardons will go a long way to restore
    universal justice and shape the future struggle of the oppressed
    masses in this country and around the world. Recent demographic
    shifts and professional coverage by trusted media organizations
    will ensure that this progress becomes irreversible.
