“The Marxist, liberal activist…” Republicans have no idea of what anything to the left of Richard Nixon might mean.
Just like they did with “socialism,” the Fascists are manifesting precisely what it is that they fear: they’re “normalising” Marxism in the political discourse (& contrasting it with themselves, to boot - good!)…
If it takes radicals to get rid of racist, paranoid, idiots, so be it.
And yes, liberals and progressives want to walk the halls of congress. The alternative is to have right-wingers there instead.
Members of two ‘free-market capitalist’ parties calling each other ‘socialists/Marxists’ and ‘Fascists’ demonstrates the general political and historical illiteracy in what must be one of dumbest polities in the so-called ‘developed’ world.
