They send their security detail like the Nazis did to come to your family’s home and they start rummaging through it looking for your pink shirt; pretty necklace and skateboard. If they don’t find it then one by one they take your family members away never to return home again.
The liberals who are now the leaders will meet for lavish dinners with Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Kim Jung IL, the Arab Leaders and others, sitting around laughing and drinking and cheering to each other at how they turned America into a Communist State.

You aren’t getting the metaphors in that capitalism gives us a choice…a pink shirt; the right to buy things…earrings or a skateboard with the labor you exerted for the money you not only need but want to use to buy things with. As for grey…it represents bland or no choice. In a country where a person has a pink car…grey is a color choice.
As for the hosting of Arabs among others at their lavish dinner party doesn’t imply Arabs are commies.
