Socialist scare-talk

Whatever Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stand for, it certainly isn’t community ownership of the means of production, which is, the last time I clicked on the Wikipedia page, literally what socialism means …

[A]ll the people who are moaning about socialism in America today need one another desperately. Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are considered radical, edgy politicians because they argue for things like an increased minimum wage, following in the footsteps of noted commie thugs Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush. This shores up their reputations with their own bases, who never have to ask themselves why American socialism is well to the right of the Conservative Party under Harold Macmillan 60 years ago. It also gives right-wingers their jollies. In other words, everyone wins, a desirable and, dare I say, socialist outcome.
