1. I found this on definition.com

"Pinko is a critical term coined in America in 1925, originally to describe a person regarded as being sympathetic to communism, though not necessarily a Communist Party member"

2. Back in the McCarthy era, Communists were "Red" and sympathizers were "Pink" (sort of red).

Of course, somewhat ironically, today the GQP is "Red."

3. Indeed. Fitting, isn't it!

Remember “Better Dead than Red”?

That was a major battle cry of the hardline “Commie-haters”.

I could legitimately say I’d rather be dead than red because I’d rather be dead than ever to vote republi-CON.

4. Nowadays, Republicans say something else

"I'd rather be Russian than a Democrat."

How fucked up is that?
