Steele under pressure to support RNC resolution calling Democrats "Democratic Socialist Party"

Michael Steele Under Pressure To Call Dems Socialists Will He Buckle?
It isnt easy being Michael Steele these days.

A number of conservative members of the Republican National Committee are pressing the committee and by extension, Steele to officially adopt the position that the Democratic Party is socialist.

Over a dozen members of the conservative wing of the RNC have submitted a new resolution, to be eventually voted on by the entire RNC, that would call on the Democratic party to rename itself the Democrat Socialist Party. If the RNC adopts this resolution, the RNCs official view would become that Democrats are socialists. From the resolution:
.....................................................................................................................................
RESOLVED, that we the members of the Republican National Committee call on the Democratic Party to be truthful and honest with the American people by acknowledging that they have evolved from a party of tax and spend to a party of tax and nationalize and, therefore, should agree to rename themselves the Democrat Socialist Party.
.....................................................................................................................................

And yet if you say they're homophobic they say you're being mean.

How the hell is this anything other than elementary school level name-calling?
