    Yeah as if he has an answer other than the blanket leftist "you hate everyone that disagrees with you!".

    No, Joe McCarthy was a Senator and the H in HUAC stand for House.

    The big problem was a lack of commie paranoia, not too much of it. Were there more commie paranoia perhaps tens of millions of human lives might have been saved.

    Commie good - Fascist bad.

    It's a huge part of the leftist DNA.

    You say that, but yet you do so.

    Understand that stereotyping is assuming that people within a group who share at least one trait must then also share other traits. When you equate American liberals with Soviet communists and Karl Marx, you're grouping people into collectives so you can denounce them.

    What's more, it's all basically for semantic effect. The idea here is to borrow the negative associations of historical communism (revolution, violence, equality of outcome, political oppression) and apply it your political opponents.

    Um... being called a commie is simply a reference to some of your fundamental beliefs. Like government control over the economy is good, which many on the left undeniably believe.

    Being called what you are, is no more insulting than a boy being called a male, or someone who eats only vegetables being called a vegetarian.

    If what you are is an insult to you, then.... CHANGE WHAT YOU ARE. But you don't go around whining that women who sleeping around with men for money, shouldn't be called hookers. You simply stop being a hooker, and then you won't be called one.

    Ah... the lost art of logic in American society.

    Perhaps you could point out the leftists who are openly commending communism, just to clear up any confusion about your claim.

    Oh please, an old spin on the ever tired "not all liberals think the same" but yet when progressive liberals like you speak of conservatives you do exactly what you condemn here. So spare us all...

    What's more, it's all basically for semantic effect. The idea here is to borrow the negative associations of historical communism (revolution, violence, equality of outcome, political oppression) and apply it your political opponents.
    Semantic? Nah....I believe it is more dead on accurate assessment.
