I still don't understand. You say you know they're not communist (in 
fact, they have been traditionally and foundationally notable 
ANTIcommunists, which is what gives PRC the shits with them), but you 
still call them "commies". In this case I'm missing the irony or 
facetiousness or joke or something. Is it like calling the POTUS a 
commie? Or Canadians, or Australians, or just about everyone except 
die-hard libertarians?
