Hello Kitty Communism

Oh, the Commissar will be most displeased with this display of decadence from CPUSA (via QandO). For instance, want to show your support for the proletariat? How about a Karl Marx Lunchbox?

Karl Marx wrote much food for thought. Here's a box to put your lunch in. Hungry for more? Click image.

No? A bit too childish? You could always buy a Commie Bear for your appropriately socialistic sweetheart:

Commie bear! It's the Communist Party USA logo on a teddy bear. Click image to shop for a variety of items sporting the CPUSA gear - hammer - sickle logo.

Have they figured out that they've lost the war, and now they're just cashing in on the wreckage of 90 years? Or are they so benighted that they have no idea how baldly ironic Communist merchandising rights are?

(Note: I would have posted the images of the merchandise here, but even though I would have appreciated the delicious irony of being sued by the Communist Party over property rights, I decided not to expose myself to the potential hassle.)
