Yea, I think that's a key distinction.  It is highly politically correct to swear at
and cuss out the bourgeoisie. It is crypto-Christianity and parlor room manners to
make a principled argument about swearing about the goddamn capitalists.

The bourgeoisie is a motherfucker.

Of course, we are against swearing at other workers.

I'm not interested in creating new idolatry here, but I have never seen such behaior
by Fidel Castro- before, during or after the Revolution- in regards to other
Communists (except Pol Pot, but I think everyone took a shot at him).
