Found on some forum. This is brilliant, I think. At least 2/3 of local futuretimeliners use this...
Brief guide for anti-Communist trolls
Constantly insist that Marxism is discredited, outdated, dead and buried.
Insist that Marxism is utopian because of its description of future society. For a change, insist that Marxism failed because it did not give a detailed description of how communist society may look like. Do not pay attention to contradiction.
You decide what Marxism really means and who were (or weren't) its representatives. Don’t forget to voice the concern that Stalin took power from Trotsky, despite the fact that you hate them both.
Nothing that comes from communists can be trusted, for except of “secret speech” of Khrushchev in 1956 or some few works of Trotsky.
Refer to the long lists of dead, without worrying about demographics and common sence. Three million? Seven million? Ten millions? One hundred million deaths in total? Do not worry that someone will check your words.
Being asked about exact numbers or historical context, use labels like “ruthless tyrant” and “cruel killer”.
Remember: communism or Marxism is what you want it to be. Feel free to stigmatize the target countries and regimes as “communist”, regardless of their declared ideology, economic policies or property relations.
Any unnatural death that occurs under the "communist" regime can be attributed only to Marxism as an ideology. Ignore deaths that occur for the same reasons in non-communist states. If communists were involved in some kind of conflict, all the victims of this conflict should be added to the death toll of communism.
Everyone ever arrested under the communist regime was most likely innocent of any crime. The communists were arresting only harmless poets and political preachers who just wanted to share their spiritually meaningful messages.
Everything that Stalin did or did not do, carried some sinister hidden reason. Everything.
Remember the classic two-step anti-communist attack. First criticize the post-Stalinist system on economic grounds, claiming that it does not work. If someone refer to economy of Stalinist era, attack it on the grounds of human rights.
Always stay objective. Feel free to criticize the flaws of capitalism, but don’t let anyone suggest communism as alternative. What can you reply being asked about ongoing and often deepening problems in modern world? Freedom! Repeat it until the opponent retreats.
Use words like “freedom” and “democracy” all the time. If someone will demand to define them, resist.
Praise secularism as the way to freedom until you faced a communist. Then play a religious card.
Your key phrase: human nature. For your purposes, the “human nature” is a quick explanation of why political ideas or systems that you don’t like are wrong.
Learn the magic word "totalitarian." It will allow you to connect two ideological antipodes - communism and fascism.
Constantly remind George Orwell. Do not forget to cite "Animal Farm" and "1984".
Do not forget the bitter price: Bolshevik revolution was carried out through violence and bloodshed. This is the fundamental difference from bourgeois revolutions, which were carried out through peaceful democratic procedures, with no violence at all.
Always insist that regardless of the historical and socio-cultural backgroung, gained experience and all other factors, communists always strive to recreate the modern copy of Stalin’s Russia.
Communist regimes have never been popular. Faced with evidence of the opposite, insist that people were brainwashed. Constantly remind about the “culture of fear” and notorious “knock on the door” in the middle of the night.
Remind your opponent that communist leaders were paranoid, they spent too much attention and resources to deter the counter-revolution, as if this threat was still real.
Praise the newfound freedom of Eastern Europe. Ignore the rapid depopulation, huge alcohol and drug problems, political instability, civil wars, ethnic cleansing, sex trafficking and child prostitution, organized crime, high suicide rates, unemployment, diseases, etc. Does all this matter when they have the free speech?
