The irony to all this is that I support the Democrat party along with other Communists. We never actually seriously have thought of a Communist winning an election. Although Socialist have pulled it off which is remarkable and commendable. It is also rather funny to me that it is you "progressives" who resort to name calling toward me or disrespectful comments toward me. I use to get angry about it. Now I just smile and chuckle as you go and check the correct ballots.

Remember Comrade which party had a open Socialist run for President.
Comrade, if you truly want to advance your cause, then drop the vernacular "comrade" for starts. The negative connotations of "comrade" throw up a shield impervious to your ideas, no matter how correct they may be.

My Russian-born wife laughs at your use of comrade, and believe me she benefitted from the communist system in many ways. The harshness of our capitalist system are difficult for her to take.

Three facets of her Soviet experience were negative. One, her grandfather, who fought the entire length of WWII, "disappeared" for several months. He was sent to gulag without any trial. He was a party member, and one of his sons, an engineer, to this day will explain the benefits lost with the loss of Soviet communism, and they are substantial.

Another: Lines. Lines everywhere, for everything. A daily chore. Late dinners were the norm as a result.

Utter male chauvinism. In an environment where "superiors" absolutely will lord any power they have over those who don't have any, many women learned that crossing yourself and submitting often were part of the bill for having your leaky faucet repaired.

If so, don't call the police. They're all guys, and they know how hysterical women can be.

All of that crap and worse, much worse, is intimately associated with the use of "comrade." Keep using it if failure is your goal.

My wife just read my post. She indeed began laughing at your use of comrade. Those in the USSR who used the term were what we'd today call "party hacks."

Try brothers and sisters, comrade. They have a much warmer connotation.

That's why Jimmyb, Sabcat and the various and sundry incarnations of excalibur used to use it as a slur of the left constantly.

Although now for some reason that absolutely defies any logic at all, the slur of the day has become Nazi.

Espousing the same positions generating accusations of commie and Nazi? Only in their alternative fact-filled world.

No, not really. Though i can only speak for myself more often than not i am using it either as a reference to animal farm or to point out the socialist tendencies of the post and/or poster. Depending on the context.

Many of todays leftists refuse to acknowledge how utterly murderous that communism has been over the years. In fact they celebrate it.

I find it amazing that in todays America people can find themselves assaulted for wearing a "make America great again" hat publicly and people do not bat an eye at the same time you can see many people parading around w/ che, Marx, Stalin or whatever orher communist is currently en vogue t-shirts w/ no problem at all.

You live in a dream world - here 'Comrade' was the normal term of address not only in the CP but also in the Labour Party. It's probably the fact that we pronounce it properly that confuses you.

He made the assumption that Communism revolves around Russia. Yes, Russia may have been where Red October occurred, but a belief in Marx does not require one to fawn over Russia custom

I'm doing it...?

What am i doing?
You said:

That is it, the labels...the focus on the differences and using them tl create groups and then pitting them against each other. That is identity politics. Then using that in the perspective ofoppressor vs oppressed is Cultural Marxism.

You used three labels.
