37. Schumer is the one doing the 'red baiting' by attacking a mythical 'far left' that

 

no longer exists.

He can't come out and say "Communists" and "Communist sympathizers" (even though that's what this 1%er probably thinks and means), b/c to do so would open him to charges of McCarthyism.

Instead, Schumer trots out the shibboleth of the 'far left' as though there is any such organized political force left in this country. I wish there were a far left in this country with real political power. Then 1 out of 5 children would not be living in poverty. Kee-rist.
