And if he created Lennon, why'd he go and make a Hitler?

from Mac Miller – Desperado Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Mac questions how (in the context of these lyrics) God could bring Vladimir Lenin into the world, who was mostly responsible for the Soviet Union and murders of those who opposed him, but not learn his lesson after how wrong it turned out. God would still go on to create Adolf Hitler, a butt-hurt artist who was single-handedly responsible for quite possibly one of the worst genocide’s in history, The Holocaust.

Another interperation is that how could God make a person like John Lennon of The Beatles (Mac Miller is like them to these young kids), who is all about peace and love, and still have created someone as evil as Hitler, cleverly pointing out the stark contrast in the Christian deities ways.

Lenin

Hitler

Lennon
