It’s been back for a while. But now it’s got a real true bounce to it.
With a much cleaner application than fascist (the all-purpose paint the Left uses for whatever displeases it), commie captures about every mental inclination, facial tic, or answer to anything that the Left has.
Now, I know that there are some people who laugh at commie, but it gives good weight in its revival. It’s not as if using it would be like using some absolutely meaningless word to describe what’s happening — like, say, if someone went around calling a political program “Change!” or something. Now that would be just silly.
Commie, though, really seizes the new atmosphere and calls it by name.
