* In the ''Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom'' thread ''Literature/{{Reds}}'', [=MacArthur=]'s [[DayOfTheJackboot counterrevolution]], which included letting Klansmen run wild across the South, and assassinating Huey Long, and the Louisiana State Legislature, all because the Communists won a fair election. In-universe, this is what triggers the Second American Revolution.
** In another ''Alternate History'' thread, ''Literature/TheAngloAmericanNaziWar'', [[spoiler:Acting Fuhrer Himmler]] crosses this when he issues Order 571, which has German forces destroy several culturally-significant cities, thousands of years of irreplaceable history, [[IfICantHaveYou in preference to allowing the Allies to have them]]. [[spoiler:This includes a thorough destruction of Paris, ''which is televised to Britain'']]. [[EvilIsPetty Modern historians in this universe compare the Nazis' actions to a jealous, bitter ex-spouse squirreling away some assets and then ruining everything they can get their fingers on]].
** In another thread ''[[spoiler: Rumsfeldia]]:Fear and Loathing in the Decade of Tears'', the sequel to ''Literature/FearLoathingAndGumboOnTheCampaignTrailSeventyTwo'', it is hard to know when [[spoiler: [[PresidentEvil Donald Rumsfeld]] ]] sails over the line, but there are some things: killing[=/=]disappearing political opponents, [[spoiler: using voting fraud to win the 1984 election]], ripping all forms of worker's rights and environmental regulation, giving military aid to [[AmoralAfrikaner Magnus Malan]]. [[spoiler: But the worst moment is when Liberty Legions are ordered to kill wounded soldiers so as to not pay for their welfare]].

** ''WebOriginal/ZhirinovskysRussianEmpire'': Vladimir Zhirinosvky and the UIS jump around horizon several times, with genocide, political repression, and international thuggery. But [[InUniverse the specific moment]] when the world community realized how insane Mad Vlad was when he sent a letter to Helmut Kohl, proposing a ''joint Nazi-style invasion of Poland'', followed by locking Poles in concentration camps, and later organizing attacks on the German, Israeli and Polish embassies.
