Hitler did nothing right.

Lol every one knew he would be on this list

I admire how he gained power but hate his guts

Joseph Stalin Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin was a Georgian dictator, and was the leader of the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953. Holding the post of the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, he was effectively the dictator of the state.

He did ten times worst than hitler so he should be number 1

This guy should be first he killed way More people than Hitler!

He killed pretty much "hmm lets see...EVERYONE!?!

Mao Zedong Mao Zedong, also transliterated as Mao Tse-tung and commonly referred to as Chairman Mao, was a Chinese communist revolutionary and founding father of the People's Republic of China, which he governed as Chairman of the Communist Party of China from its establishment in 1949, until his death in 1976. more.

He has to top this list in an objective sense, seeing how he killed the most people (estimated between 49-78 million). Whether it be through his failed economic policies which led to famine & starvation, or his state killings among others, his actions led to many dying and as such is inarguably the biggest killer in terms of state leaders in recent history. - Mrveteran

Pol pot is a massive idiot in my opinion he is just as bad as Hitler even though he is less popular then Hitler. He also has a lot in common with Hitler because Hitler killed Jews and pol pot killed monks and they both had death camps but pol pot sent people from his own country to work in the camps and he also set loads of mine fields and he killed hundreds of innocent people. us Brits are lucky he did this horrible stuff in Asia not here in Europe like Hitler however we are very lucky he is now dead and no longer living people should still celebrate his death today.
