Shades of McCarthyism and the cold war!
Will the stupidity never end?
Just be a progressive, ala Teddy Rossevelt or FDR, and the idiots on the right will label you a card carrying communist.
On what basis?
On the basis of their own idiotic and warped thinking!
If you don't goose step to their ultra conservative, right-wing tune, prepare to be denounced as the lowest of the low as far as their world-view is concerned. If anything favors the savaged 99% who are not among the privileged rich aristocracy, it's automatically relegated to socialism, and the worst of all socialism -- communism.
I guess that makes me a communist, although I've never been acquainted with a known communist and wouldn't even know or want to find out where to start to get in touch with the Communist Party, which is not exactly a monolithic entity here in the USA -- and most of the rest of the world.
My shock, indignation and, thus this blog, resulted from this article I just read: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/11/allen-west-democrats-communist-party_n_1417279.html
Can anybody really be that stupid?
