    It’s time to declare the Democratic party a national terror threat with them pushing for a political system in America that’s already led to ‘death by government’ for tens of millions!

    Reporting within their story that leftists are absolutely giddy as the post-Constitutional system created in America following the attacks upon us on 9/11, allegedly created to go after radical Islamic terrorists in far-off lands, is turned against the American people here in the USA, this declaration of white nationalists being a major terror threat in America isn’t grounded in reality as Conservative Activist Candace Owens recently told Congress.

    And with Democrats almost across the board now pushing for socialism aka Communism for America, and Americans and the world having absolute proof that Communism across the planet has led to more than 100 million people being brutally slaughtered by ‘government, PROVING that the political system Democrats are trying to bring in to America is much more of a TERROR THREAT than so-called ‘white nationalists’ ever could be, why aren’t McAleenan and the DHS going after the entire Demonrat party for pushing for a political system in America that almost always leads to ‘death by government‘, with hundreds of millions slaughtered by such totalitarian political systems?

    Well as the DC Clothesline story points out, this is about the establishment regaining control of the narrative and the move goes hand in hand with the FBI declaring “conspiracy theories” a “new domestic terrorism threat” and DARPA/the Pentagon moving to suppress “fake news” on social media.

    Communists have used walls and machine gun towers to keep their people in. If they had a truly wonderful system, none of that would have been needed. Communist tyrany is so blatant and "in your face," it makes you wonder why anyone would see it as something good.

    As a way of controlling and having power over other people and the society available only to the few who become the elite. I also think it is out of envy over others who have a better life them themselves. Socialism like that always is about controlling your rights and freedom to achieve the lowest common misery factor for the many and giving wealth, authority and power to the very few. I knew a Romanian person who live under communism and he came to USA and told me life was very bad under the communists. He is an enthusiastic Trump and republican supporter and has fear and loathing for the socialists to be gaining power here. He basically despise these social democrats for what they might do here.

    In the mind of the socialist or communist, the 'common good" is what counts the most, as they will willingly give up personal liberties in order to have ease/comfort and pleasures!

    Yes and they don’t understand that. Thus your comment becomes a muted point.

    the perception is that Socialism is Precursor to out in out communism.

    THat of course is a false perception.

    Please Y1 give examples where Democratic Socialism has lead into the sort of Communism identified in the OP.

    There is a broad spectrum of Socialism, ranging from the post WW2 British system to Stalin & Mao Communism. The long term alliance with the US meant that Socialism survived in the UK, though the struggle with Capitalists caused the premature collapse of the post war Socialist government. Nevertheless, the Conservative government of McMillan et al implemented many Socialist policies. The 1980s government of Thatcher reversed the gains & its effect continue to this day.

    Socialism is democratic, with free elections and a concern for peaceful implementation.

    Communism is a dictatorship, controlled & enforced by military power.

    The world problem is that the US agencies, CIA & FBI do not understand this essential difference. Thus in Chili the popular elected Socialist regime of Allende was undermined by the CIA & the military dictator Pinochet was installed. The same thing is happening in Venezuela. Socialism "fails" because of US sanctions that impoverish the regime.

    The thread title "Democratic socialists want a type of government that murdered 100 million people last century" is absolutely wrong! We want a true democracy - Government of the people, by the people for the people.

    We need living wages to be paid to all employees, and the very rich & the corporations to pay taxes on their income & profits. All need to contribute from income, by taxes & national insurance to provide health care & pensions.

    A great deal of expenditure could be made available by promoting international peace & security, rather than massive arms expenditure.

    Socialism holds to government take over of the major business units, like energy and transportation, take over medical , and to have BIG taxes on people, all under "common public good!"

    No. Socialism sets up publicly funded bodies to organise & run such businesses, with profits used to improve services. These are NOT government bodies.
