2. Regarding Stage 7, Classic Reds..........

and really even Pinkos, have ALWAYS known that the so-called "liberals" will support even the fascists when it comes down to a choice between a full blown anti-capitalist revolt or a fascist state that "saves" capitalism. There's an old saw that I first heard in the '60s from the SDS. It goes:

The fascists will shoot you. The conservatives will cheer the fascists on. The moderates will watch your execution on TV. And the liberals will cry over your grave once you're safely dead. In the dark, after turning you in to the fascists.

That's why Reds don't trust liberals because this is an inevitability in class war.
