I'm no fan of many of the Dems initiatives, but that's just pure propaganda to suggest they are just like communists and dictators as I often hear from conservatives.
For starters, NK and Cuba are dictatorships. China was a dictatorship as was the USSR. Now China is an oligarchy. They can call themselves "communists" until they're blue in the face. They're not and never were.
Communism is a pipe dream. But that's not the point. The point is, the 45 million people who call themselves Dems, are not like them at all. That's not to say what they want is a good idea. It's not, but trying to vilify them all into dictatorship loving murderers is absolute propaganda.
