Protestor in Tennessee wearing hammer and sickle symbol on shirt

You have to love the union protestors wearing communist symbols on their shirts. I am not sure how many people know what these symbols mean, but hopefully a few do. The news story on the disruptive union and student protestors is available here.

Supposedly 11% of our population find communism the ideal solution.

I recall a statement by PJ O'Rourke about how he used to be a Marxist in his college days...but that the Marxism he held to would have been unrecognizable to Marx himself.

Although appropriated by the Soviet Communist party, the hammer and sickle was originally used to convey the "working classes", the agricultural and industrial workers. Therefore, as a stand-alone symbol, the symbol's relation to the union membership and their plight is apropos.

At least the protestor is using an appropriate historical symbol to communicate her perspective. Many Tea Party "leaders" can't even get basic historical facts straight.
