Why does our society have such double standards about fascism and communism? Both are sheer evil, but one seems to get a lot more slack. For example, the extremes of McCarthyism were definitely wrong and completely indefensible, but a lot of Hollywood people were card carrying Communists in the 50s and 60s. Would they be considered such heroes today had they been Nazis? My local shopping complex has a bar called “KGB”. I doubt “Gestapo” would attract quite the same crowd.
I’m not saying Jezebel condones Communism, it’s just that I see a lot of articles like this and it frustrates me.
