  •  I didn't call you a 'red', I said that you (0+ / 0-)

    were engaged in Soviet-style propanda, because you are appealing entirely to emotion,  talking about injustices of the distant past, and villifying anyone who might hold a different view than you.  

    Honestly I wouldn't have a problem with your diary if it weren't for the last part (then it would just be another rah-rah letting off steam diary).  But you are using GW Bush "without us or against us" language by calling anyone who might have union reservations a corporate gun thug.  What's next, calling anyone who disagrees with an affirmative action program a lyncher?

    •  Yeah, Ok, McCarthy Jr. (5+ / 0-)

      talking about injustices of the distant past

      Yeah, real ancient. Anti-union kossacks do need to be called out to see which side they are on. This is an easy way to pick out the fan club politics of personality crowd from those that care about issues like so called free trade via NAFTA and WTO practices unions tried to fight against while "loyal Democrats" supported Bill Clinton in those endeavors.

      Clapping louder for politicians and the Chamber of Commerce whether tacitly(using their propaganda via "Soviet style propaganda" which is revealing) or not.

    •  I think saying something is "Soviet Style" is (0+ / 0-)

      pretty much the same as calling it "Red". Nowadays the word "red" has a different connotation (red state, blue state) but "Red" when those lyrics were written meant "communist" or "Soviet".
