Supporters of Progressive Taxation Are Communist Totalitarians

"What?!?!" you say? "Young is off on another of his rants," you think?

Well, I'm just applying what passes for "logic" on the far Left. After all, since Howling Latina says that, since the racist Ku Klux Klan opposes immigration, everyone (or at least, every Republican) who supports immigration reform to stop illegal immigration is a racist, too.

And, of course, she takes the de rigeur cheap shot at George Allen, claiming that his prior embrace of the history of Confederate flag must also be racist.

By the same logic, Democrats who jealously guard "progressive" taxation --- the notion that a higher rate should be paid on income earned over certain levels --- which Marx described in The Communist Manifesto as one of the hallmarks of a Communist state must also be closet Communists.
