Young people have too little first hand knowledge of Communism.
They have been taught a idealized, revisionist version of Communist dictatorships, mass murder and suppression of human rights.
The American academic community portrays Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin, and Vladimir Lenin as heroes of 'working class comrades' despite the FACT that they murdered upwards of 70 million of their own people who happened to not agree with their dogma.
Young people don't know what they don't know, so maybe we can have some empathy with their youthful naïveté. But for most of us who witnessed the fall of the Iron Curtain, we will never forget the dark cloud that Communism cast over the planet for decades.
At least half of the Democratic Party falls in that category, so they have no excuse, except that they have been brainwashed to identify with the communists, kind of like Patty Hearst, who after she was abducted by the Symbionese Liberation Army, eventually joined their radical left wing cause, even helping to rob banks. She later claimed to have suffered from a Stockholm Syndrome Effect, a condition where a captive, after long periods of isolation and brainwashing psychologically identify with and have sympathy for, their kidnappers.
After 6 or 8 years of advanced educational indoctrination in our hijacked college system, most graduates have succumbed to the collectivist mentality that is drummed into their heads by the leftist academic cartels.
Joseph Farah, the founder of WND.com (World News Daily) and a former revolutionary communist himself in his youth, says the Communist Party USA's website coverage is so effusive in its enthusiasm of Hillary and the Democrats,
it puts MSNBC to shame.
That is hard to believe.
“Back in the day when Stalinists Gus Hall and Angela Davis were regularly nominated by the party as presidential and vice presidential candidates every four years, U.S. Communists actually had beefs with the Democrats,” he said. “But, in recent years, the party ceased those efforts in favor of a united front with the Democrats, with whom they have very few differences, if any."
“Spend some time reading and digesting it (the Communist Party 2016 Election Platform). Try to discern any major differences between the Communist Party’s concerns, sensibilities and solutions – on issues from ‘gay’ rights, to unfettered immigration, to renewable energy, to wealth redistribution, to condemning cops as racist, to universal health care – and those of today’s Democratic Party.”
Good luck finding any....
