This is what I said in real life:

I've snarkily remarked that "progressive" is what we called ourselves when it became dangerous to be liberals, "liberal" is what we called ourselves when it became dangerous to be socialists, "socialist" is what we called ourselves when it became dangerous to be Communists, etc...

But to be clear, most Americans who are openly "progressive" would never ever think of themselves as Communists.
