  •  yep, they were crazy alright (10+ / 0-)

    Just a few on my Mothers lists of who was definitely Communist:

    LBJ
    The UN
    MLK Jr
    About half of my teachers, maybe more
    The World Council Of Churches
    The Kennedys

    They were also extreme Fundamentalist Christians. They believe in a Devil and his gang of demons that roam the world looking to devour souls. Their religion, I think adds to their paranoid world view.

    Richard Nixon was soft on Communism because he didn't nuke Vietnam, but don't think they out right accused him of being a Red.

    I was set to reading Masters of Deceit at a young age, which got me to thinking and questioning and reading more books at the city library.

    Which is why I was a Socialist by the age of 19.
