I HATE when this type of crap gets posted as fact and forces me to defend the Orange Cheeto....
He did not struggle at all. He has repeatedly denounced them for well over a decade. PLEASE STOP WITH THIS CRAP.

"I hadn't heard any of them describe themselves as Marxist."

Yeah, rapists, child molesters, and serial killers generally don't advertise themselves as such, so why would an equally vile group (da commies) do any different?

Look here...

...and see for yourself.

As for what I like to call 'em: intentionally paintin' with a broad brush, I call 'em 'communitarians', a grouping that includes all democrats, all progressives, most republicans, most conservatives, a great many libertarians, and a few others I'm too lazy to list...pretty much any group, or person, promoting many over one, 'we' over 'I', is -- one way or another -- in cahoots with the commies.

"They are not equivalent."

Absolutely they are...race-haters vs commies...two tribes of rabid chimps tossin' crap at each other.

Only the child-rapers are worst (and not by much).

Trump condemned the good people; people who confronted hate and hate promoters. But our wacko extremists here deny it. Complete with associating shit and DanaC. A child response from one who is suppose to be an adult. Trump sympathizers and supporters cannot reply logically - will resort to cheap shots - this time shit.

Trump is doing exactly what wacko extremists love. Even the most conservative business leaders are now leaving him in droves for good reason. Even my most conservative friends, who never voted anything but Republican, voted for Hilary. But then these are better educated people - saw what was obvious long ago.

Rise of hate groups was openly encouraged by Trump in many campaign rallies. Anyone who thinks logically saw Timothy McVeigh types encouraged by Trump.

Wacko extremists in the Trump administration are being removed. Bannon this time. Apparently their arrogance and ignorance (that justified their wacko extremist views) was too much even for Trump.

Accurately stated: the president of the USA struggled to condemn them, and then cast equal blame onto the other side. Only those brainwashed by fake news and their emotions would deny that. Trump blames everyone else (even his staff) rather than himself. Amazing that any president could be worse than George Jr.

"the good people"

There were none there, just race-haters and commies.

By golly you're right. Under empathy they say;

There it is in black and white, "comrades". Everybody knows that's commie talk, so they must be closet Marxists.

Dunno - but I consider myself a Marxist. And I am happy to say so. As are most marxists I know.

Mind you it doesn't carry the same stigma over ere.

Not a communist mind - a Marxist and socialist.

My point is that your claim that people who are marxists are going to shy away from naming themselves as such may not hold water. Given that most people don't consider them on a par with child rapists.

Unlike self-avowed nazis.
