The recent debacle over the term religious fecal matter has led me to rethink the uses of certain words on this blog. People get mistaken ideas over certain terms that are loaded. I will no longer use the term vermin to describe Communists. This is a personal choice and not a lecture to others who use it for other reasons.
The term vermin evokes images of Nazi description of Jews as subhumans. Communists will be described as accolytes of class genocide, sons of treason and other more creative terms that do not carry historical bagage. This blog has always respected human life in the perpetual fight against mindless utopians who would kill you and I for their failed schemes.
Way back when a similar point was raised when one of the most highly respected bloggers I know proposed burning the Koran. The image of book burning is one that is associated with Nazis. Arson is not a good idea in general and is quite dangerous.
Breaking things with sledgehammers is more fun but there are limited options.
