This following quote by Bourbon Democrat (very conservative) President Grover Cleveland is often truncated by right wingers:

"Communism is a hateful thing and a menace to peace and organized government;

Right here is where they stop. The thought from Grover's 1888 message to Congress continues.

but the Communism of combined wealth and capital, the outgrowth of overweening cupidity and selfishness, which insidiously undermines the justice and integrity of free institutions, is no less dangerous than the communism of oppressed poverty and toil, which, exasperated by injustice and discontent, attacks with wild disorder the citadel of misrule."
