Another definition of Communism

Check out the posters from this anti-civil rights rally from about fifty years ago. I finally understand why the signs of so many teabaggers from current protests make so little sense. When they use the words 'communism' and 'socialism', they are not referring to economic policies. This is what they are getting at. This is what they were taught communism means by their parents. (There's even an Antichrist poster in there too!)

Wow. Nice catch. Racism is sooo 1960's. Almost as embarrassing as being caught with a pair of bell-bottoms. But socialism, still in (or out of) style.
