Democratic socialists like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are all the rage with both the media and the Democratic Party (redundant, we know), and our go-to visual aid for describing the democratic socialist platform used to be these banners carried by the New York City Democratic Socialists of America.

Fortunately, we have a new visual aid courtesy of the steering committee of the Democratic Socialists of America, San Francisco:

Aw, check it out! They’ve all got matching hammer and sickle tattoos on their middle fingers. How cool is that?

Wow! The only thing worse would've been a swastika.

Unpopular opinion – This is literally no different than getting a Swatika tattoo https://t.co/ViYYAGkMff

It's all part of the "our political belief killed 100 million people in the last century" starter kit.

Your steering committee is celebrating a symbol of mass murder.

When I was a young pup in DSOC, predecessor to DSA, many moons ago, we were at least nominally anti-Communist. How can you actually wear such a blood-drenched symbol? Have you read any history of the horrific crimes of Communism? I only hope age gives wisdom.

At least democratic socialists admit they're communists now

You'll be covering that up as soon as you read a history book.

If they brand themselves, that will save us time later.

Good job, now everyone who sees you will know in advance how dumb you are and to avoid you.

Yeah, that can’t possibly backfire on you.

Maybe you should build a time machine so you can visit the "good old days" of the 1970's Soviet Union. What's not to love about bread lines, repression, and depression induced alcoholism?

You do know about all the mass murders, prison camps, oppression, starvation, and genocide committed under the hammer and sickle, right?
This pretty much advertises you as a terrible human being, like an MS-13 neck tattoo.

Noticing no wedding rings. Unsurprisingly having a family makes you realize how atrocious socialism really is.

Don't see any callouses on those hands. It is an elitist group, not a workingman's one
— Husband-Bot (@TomLynn7) December 12, 2018
Three hands that have obviously never held a hammer OR a scythe. Fitting.
— ?UnacceptableTweets ? (@UnacceptableTw1) December 12, 2018
Looks like soft hands guiding a train wreck. Soft hands that have never worked a sickle or a hammer.
If you're branding yourselves, what do you have in store for the proletariat?

You know those are permanent, don’t you?
