In this thread here about Elia Kazan, we were discussing whether or not he was a contemptible coward (my vote is Yes) and many Dopers made the point that those he outed really were Communists. And since, as we all know, American Communists are comparible to Nazis, The Klan and NAMBLA this should be perfectly fine.
Look, I’m a born and bred Capitalist. I like my form of government even with all its flaws but this does not mean that American Communists are eeeeevvviiiillllllll cloven-hooved baby rapists.
With all of the demonizing going around between the different parties in our own democratic system, I shouldn’t be surprised by this. I guess I’m not. Surprised, that is. What surprises me is how much head-nodding the bystanders do. Ayeup, Communists. Not illegal, but, hey-- we tolerate the KKK so there you go.
