It was my understanding the Corporate interests labeled the steel workers Union as Commies or Bolsheviks utilizing heavy advertising in newspapers and basically gathered public sentiment against the Unions. This was around 1917, it worked back then to get public interest to vote against itself as now.
Not disagreeing with your comments, just adding what I remembered as part of the story.

Republicans are just as much into socialism as anyone has ever been, it is just that Republicans are into socialism for the few, not socialism for the many.
When both the Left and the Right advocate socialism, the Republican Right corporate socialism and the democratic Left, socialism for the many, what is the relevant question, as regards socialism? —— that socialist resources of the many are good for the few, the Republican Right, but socialist resources for the many’s benefit the democratic Left are bad because the wide dispersal of resources to the many diminish socialist benefit to the few, the Republican Right. This justification of Right-Wing Republican socialism for the few at the expense of the many is a “greed is good” philosophy that has as a result of the collapsed economy and “borrow and spend” governance cost the 70% MAJORITY Common Population trillions of dollars in expenses to reconcile Right-Wing Republican socialism for the few at the expense of the many; it is time for these socialist resources to be clawed back from the few tor the benefit of the many.
The Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Republicans have been vehemently agitating against socialism and communism since the Russian Revolution in 1917, and all during that time the Right-Wing Conservative EXTREMIST Republicans have been employing BOTH socialism and communism for themselves and their minions, while decrying socialism and communism for the many; if corporate socialism and corporate communism is good for the Right-Wingers, and it must be, because they cling to it like stink on a dead skunk, it must be just as good for the Left-Wingers. The Right-Wingers decry socialism and communism for the Left, because it dilutes and diminishes corporate socialist and communist benefit for the Right from socialized collection of tax revenue by the U.S. Government; when both the Left and the Right are seeking the same socialist and communist benefit, Right-Wingers claims that socialism and communism for the many are nothing more than hollow sophist rhetoric in support of their “greed is good” philosophy—— nothing more.

If you base your knowledge about him on the Bible, Jesus would seem to be a hypocrit.
But, if he was a good person, he wasnt a Capitalist.

Hilarious! Christianity definitely leans toward a socialist perspective, though it can never be imposed. See Acts 2 & 4 for examples.

And when The Lord returns, she will socialize even socialism!
Make October (and every month) GOP Self-Awareness month.

Jesus wasn’t socialist. He was a hard core, right wing,
extreme capitalist and a Republican.
And, he still is.
