FALSE

Ginagamit na ang terminong red-tagging bago pa man nabuo ang Communist Party of the Philippines noong 1968.

Mula ito sa McCarthyism o “Red Scare” ng U.S. noong Cold War kung saan walang habas na inaakusahan ang sinumang pinaghihinalaang komunista nang walang sapat na basehan at sa hindi makatarungang pamamaraan.

Ang red-tagging o red-baiting ay isang delikadong gawain. Binibigyang katwiran nito ang pananakot, pagkulong, o pagpaslang ng mga awtoridad sa mga kritiko, miyembro ng progresibong grupo, at maski ang mga nakikilahok sa mga aktibidad na saklaw ng Article III ng 1987 Constitution (Bill of Rights).
