But America’s socialist roots…. sorry, that is a laugh. From day one, this nation has had a free market and a capitalist heart. The fact that we have instituted social programs, certainly does not mean we are a socialist nation. Even as a capitalist nation we have to care for those unable to care for themselves, and have managed to allow government to mandate that we care for those too lazy to work too. Never mind all the local, state, and federal workers, who are really only glorified welfare recipients anyway, as much a parasite on the working class as any other deadbeat.

How about the CEO who launched D-day?

Socialism wins. We haven’t won a war since.

Supplies were commandeered and rationed. FDR employed millions in public works to support the war effort and domestic growth.

We have not won a war since.

They are fascists. Is that a goad or are you serious? US patriots believe in liberty and justice. We are the people who threw off the kings. Fascists are just another type of king. They take power by force, like a king, and they use everyone like a beast of burden, like a king and both kings and fascist believe that other humans have no right to freedom and liberty. The Nazis were just a very sick and dark type of fascist, often believers in the occult and magic. Not rational thinkers at all, even though they feign rationality through their perversion of Darwin and Nietzsche.

So that is who is condemning the socialists.

Socialism in America is also responsible for such traditions as the 8 hour work day and those weekends you enjoy so much, along with abolishing child labour. Americans have a short memory, but you all owe the socialist factory girls and other workers for the blood that was spilled fighting for your rights.

Nazis, who killed blacks, gypsies and Jews, were BIG patriots.

More, “socialists” died fighting the Nazis in WW2 than Americans. 20+ Million Russians died whereas only 600,000 Americans.

Hummm…moreover, you miss the point.

A “social democrat” is a capitalist, just one who cares about a functional healthy balanced society.

Book to follow soon!

You mean to say that the people of the Soviet Union, where 20-30 million died during WWII, didn’t fight the Nazis? I can’t wait to read your book, professor.
