Terminally Stupid People Have Always Been With Us

We’ve Seen the Likes of the Teabaggers Before

By WILLIAM BLUM

A US Army 6-page pamphlet, “How to Spot a Communist”, informed us that a
communist could be spotted by his predisposition to discuss civil
rights, racial and religious discrimination, the immigration laws,
anti-subversive legislation, curbs on unions, and peace.  Good Americans
were advised to keep their ears stretched for such give-away terms as
"chauvinism", "book-burning", "colonialism", "demagogy", "witch hunt",
"reactionary", "progressive", and "exploitation".  Another
“distinguishing mark” of “Communist language” was a “preference for long
sentences.”  After some ridicule, the Army rescinded the pamphlet.
