    It's still very much the mindset among many today, hence our Usual Suspects who constantly declare anyone and anything they disagree with "socialist" without any apparent understanding of the meaning of the term.

    Fair enough.
    In the UK many moderate socialists are frightened of Jeremy Corbyn's socialism, but he does seem to be surging forward at this time.

    These days I vote for a person rather than which party they belong to.

    There must be a whole bunch of political '''kill' terms for doing damage to any opponents. Trouble is, the public can be so auto-prejudiced so easily.

    It sure takes guys to choose politics for a job, I reckon.

    I wondered if you'd catch the humor.
    National Socialist Party wasn't pure socialism, but government
    did exert enormous control over the means of production.

    How was Marx a tyrant? The man wrote some books, and died.

    Talk about putting the cart before the horse.

    Jesus wasn't a Marxist. Marxism didn't exist yet.:confused:

    I don't do humour on Saturdays.
    Socialism isn't really about words and titles, it's about actions.

    He created an ideology that led to the starvation, death and oppression of millions of people. A tyrant/monster/whatevs suits him just the same.

    Yes.
    Tyrants all.

    Let's call it Tyranny, rather than anything else.

    Actually they do. I even cited them for all to enjoy. Just because you had a commie college professor lie to you about Che doesn't mean that erases reality.

    Your sources are lying. Citing something does not make it true.

    Starving millions to death is not love.

    Jesus fed people. So therefore he is not a communist.

    Communist "re-educate" (kick their teeth in) people that disagree with them.

    The worst Jesus ever did was chase a tax man with a whip, can you blame Him? So He was not a communist.

    Communism is about manipulating the desperate into handing over all their rights, labor, dignity, and money for the (false) promise of security and prosperity.

    Jesus gave love and only ask for love in return. He was not a communist.

    No, it's not well known. That's because it's false. Che was one of the greatest men to walk this Earth, if not the greatest.
