I’ve noticed that when conservatives start blathering on with their useful far right idiocy on the subject of communism of the former USSR they start acting just like Antifa. When conservatives start railing against communism, they start getting irrationally offended just for the sake of being offended even though there’s no reason why anyone in a western country should have a deep emotional connection with communism. They get this extremely disingenuous righteous anger followed by expressing hope for violence against communists, which can include anyone who doesn’t share their far right views on communism. This is the exact same pattern of behavior as the regressive left. When someone starts expressing irrational anger at something when they have no justification for their level of emotion, it’s a sign of projection. Conservatives use the former USSR to project problems with idealistic political system that can’t work because of human nature and claimed all men are created equal but led to the murder of 100 million people.
Communism doesn’t work because of human nature either. The solution is not “somewhere in the middle.”
