Who Decided GOP is Red and Democrats Blue? (Pinko Press!)

“Pinko” represents people with a tendency toward socialism; socialism represents people with a tendency toward Communism with Communism being the ultimate goal.

In 1976, the Republican Party was identified on the election maps as blue.  In the last four presidential elections, we have been represented as red.  Some in the media said they switch the colors periodically so they don’t appear biased.  How would that be biased?  Because the Communist colors are red?  Maybe the press should consider alternating the colors every other election instead of showing us their true redness.

Hmmm, I wonder what color they will assign to a third party.  How’s white work for you, pinko press?

1976             Democrat Red/Carter                Republican Blue/Ford

1980             Republican Blue/Reagan         Democrat Red/Carter

1984             Republican Blue/Reagan         Democrat Red/Mondale

1988             Republican Red/Bush Sr.         Democrat Blue/Dukakis

1992             Democrat Red/Clinton              Republican Blue/Bush Sr.

1996             Democrat Red/Clinton              Republican Blue/Dole

2000             Republican Red/Bush Jr.          Democrat Blue/Gore

2004             Republican Red/Bush Jr.          Democrat Blue/Kerry

2008             Democrat Blue/Obama             Republican Red/McCain

2012             Democrat Blue/Obama             Republican Red/Romney

So five times out of 10 the GOP has been red and five times out of 10, the Democrats have been blue.  Okay, fair enough, but do you see a pattern easing in here?  Four of those five have been the last four presidential elections.

What about the “off years?”  Wikipedia chose to indicate the off years with Republicans as red and Democrats as blue.  So that’s it?  Republicans are now associated with the color of Socialists, Communists and radicals.  Why not put the red shoe where it fits best—on the left foot!

From where did these colors derive?

On November 2, 2004, Paul Farhi, a staff writer for The Washington Post stated,  “The first reference to ‘red states’ and ‘blue states,’ according to a database search of newspapers, magazines and TV news transcripts since 1980, occurred on NBC’s ‘Today’ show about a week before the 2000 election.  Matt Lauer and Tim Russert discussed the projected alignment of the states, using a map and a color scheme that had first shown up a few days earlier on NBC’s sister cable network, MSNBC. ‘So how does [Bush] get those remaining 61 electoral red states, if you will?’ Russert asked at one point.”

Wikipedia writes, “Since 2000, usage of the term has been expanded to differentiate between states being perceived as liberal and those perceived as conservative.  This reverses a long-standing convention, where the red symbols (such as the Red Flag or Red Star) are associated with Socialist and revolutionary movements, and conservative movements often choose blue as a contrasting color.”

Exactly, Wikipedia, exactly!

For our readers who were taught revisionist history in our public schools and colleges and are, therefore, unaware of red being associated with radicals, below are Wikipedia sites associating the color red with Socialist, Communist and Revolutionary movements.

Soviet Red Army

Little Red Book

Red Square

Red Flag

Five Pointed Red Star

Red Scare

Red Baiting

Red Brigades







When we look at the 2012 election results map broken down by counties, we see a predominantly red map with very little blue.  The truth is, it is the reds that won the election, and the marginalized blues who were left in the corners.  Yet we were told to believe that reds are the Republicans and the blues are the Democrats.  Reality comes more in line when we revert back to the true meaning of the colors that they have perversely betrayed on the American people.

American comedienne Steve Allen once said, “Better red than dead,” meaning he’d rather be a Communist instead of dead.

I will never accept being called a “red.”  I am a true blue Conservative.
