Wasn’t the name “Congressional Progressive Caucus” renamed in 1991 from another name. To get away from the word ‘socialist’?
I don’t think the name of the caucus was changed, since it was founded in 1991. However, I think they named it “Progressive” specifically to deflect attention away from the fact that they are communist in reality. Most people don’t know that communists have called themselves “progressive” for more than 20 years - they hear “progessive” and think “so what?” People would have been a lot more aware and critical of the dems if they had known what was really going on. (Of course, those of us who have been on FR for a while have known all along who they really are.) Communists are always sneaky about everything they do, and even though these members are proud to be “progressive,” I am sure they will scream when they are labeled “communist” - even though they are. No wonder they are all insane. If I was a betting person, I would start a thread on how long it will be before Nancy Pelosi begins one of her endless tirades (even though he didn’t name names, she will know he meant her, since I believe she considers herself at the top of the list).
