Jezebel off-Target

I am certainly no fan of fascism (like Orwell I loath any form of totalitarianism) but it seems to be a bit rich to be getting outraged about this when everywhere you go you see this.

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.
