And not only did West not apologize -- or receive significant criticism from his fellow Republicans -- his revealing response was to raise funds off it.
Communists, of course, murdered more than 100 million people in the past century, if you add up the rough total of butchery by Vladimir Lenin (Soviet Union), Joseph Stalin (Soviet Union), Mao Zedong (China) and Pol Pot (Cambodia). This is the reason people were understandably offended at Miami Manager Ozzie Guillen's recent comments professing admiration for Cuban Communist dictator Fidel Castro.
But there were no widespread protests or requests for censure in West's case. Instead it was greeted as an almost unremarkable part of the new normal. A military man of West's rank understands the magnitude of his misstatement. So I'm assuming that he was sincere in the accusation. To equate liberals in Congress with communists is like equating conservatives in Congress with fascists -- something only the most brain-dead Occupy protester would attempt.
And just for a moment imagine if a liberal member of Congress made an equal and opposite accusation, saying that all the members of the tea party caucus were Nazis. It would be rightly greeted with wall-to-wall outrage.

Are we talking RED SCARE!, or reddish vigilance?
