Kindergarten Konservatives tossing the word “socialism” around like ketchup and mustard at a barbecue as if they actually knew and understood exactly what they are talking about. No need for a meme, just quote the guy who knew, understood and functioned in government at a time when the primary scare word was “communism” and not the big “S” that KK’s use to appear smart when they mention it.
Socialism is a scareword they have hurled at every advance the people have made in the last 20 years.
Socialism is what they called public power.
Socialism is what they called social security.
Socialism is what they called farm price supports.
Socialism is what they called bank deposit insurance. Socialism is what they called the growth of free and independent labor organizations.
Socialism is their name for almost anything that helps all the people. – HARRY S. TRUMAN, speech, Oct. 10, 1952
