Democratic Socialists harassed, called 'Commies' by group of men at Silver Dollar

A group of Democratic Socialists who were holding a public meeting at a Louisville restaurant Thursday night were harassed and attacked by a group of anti-leftists, according to the owner of The Silver Dollar.

The Louisville chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America was hosting an event at the popular Frankfort Avenue restaurant from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, according to a public Facebook event.

Shortly after the Democratic Socialists had gathered, at least four men began taunting and swearing at them from the sidewalk near the whiskey bar and restaurant's patio and telling them to leave, according to a Courier Journal review of a video from the encounter in the Clifton neighborhood east of downtown.

The police arrived around 8:10 p.m. There were no arrests or severe injuries.

1. Apparently good old boys, whiskey bars and democratic socialists do not mix well in Kentucky.

5. Closet Democratic Socialism is fun for the whole family

Kentucky isn't friendly to anything the color blue save for the Wildcats and the grass.

4. When the USSR collapsed, I thought it would mean the end of red-baiting.

Apparently not. We've seen quite a revival over the last decade.
