1 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.
First, the caption to this list is completely wrong. If you have ever read "The Communist Manifesto", you would know that no where does the ideology state that murdering political dissents are part of communism. But, that is not to defend the ideology, not Stalin.
Stalin was a horrendous leader. Lenin did not want him to take power because he knew that Stalin would abuse it. Stalin managed to get himself the position by manipulation. Stalin's purges killed 20-40 million people, most of them (over 99%) were innocent.
He caused a thing called the holodomor or Ukraine holocaust. Search it up. And he killed more than Hitler.

Ordered more people executed than any Nazi or other Communist.
This man was an idiot too.
No wonder Stalin disliked him.
Killed more than any other man in history.
3 Pol Pot
Pol Pot, born Saloth Sar, was a Cambodian revolutionary who led the Khmer Rouge from 1963 until 1997. From 1963 to 1981, he served as the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Kampuchea.
Pol Pot's Cambodia made Mao's China or Stalin's Soviet Union look like a paradise. He basically deported the entire urban population out of the cities in just one night and brutally executed anyone suspected of being an intellectual; meaning anyone who had an education and even those who had glasses. The executions were usually carried out by beating the victims to death with shovels or pickaxes to spare bullets, and then the bodies were dumped in mass graves. Some people were buried alive. During Pol Pot's tenure the Vietnamese minority in Cambodia was horribly persecuted. Vietnamese people and many other minorities including Thai and Chinese, were mutilated, raped and killed. Even babies and toddlers were murdered in all sorts of disgusting ways. Not to mention, Pol Pot also abolished monetary economy and reset the calendar. His aggressive foreign policy caused Vietnam to invade in 1978; however, the invasion soon turned into a humanitarian operation after the Vietnamese noticed ...more

9 Nicolae Ceaușescu
Should be far higher. He was one of the worst dictators of the Eastern Bloc. He was initially a decent leader but then became a paranoid megalomaniac who ruined his country. Romania still hasn't fully recovered from this beast's misrule. He admired figures such as Stalin and Kim Il-sung and attempted to make his country like North Korea.
