I think that old white American blue collar men use the word "marxism" as a cover up to justify racism and xenophobia. I think they just need something to point their finger at that sounds more reasonable than outright coming out and stating the truth that they are in fact racists and islamophobes.

It's not that there is in fact anything wrong with marxism. These people just need to convince themselves there is in order to justify their continued oppression of minority groups.

Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

You are paranoid. The threat of socialism and the devastation it brings is real.

The problem is that many black Americans are sensitized to see racism where there is none. Imagine what is like to grow up and hear you have no chance because of racism 24/7 from the cradle to the tomb. The media and black leaders talk about this 24/7. This causes RACIAL PTSD and people start to see racism where there is none. Blacks raised in Africa do not have this PTSD.

Every white supremacist says the same thing.

It's wonderful because it allows them to target some non-racial ideology while knowing deep down that their resistance to marxism is what keeps white men in power and keeps minority groups oppressed.

There is absolutely no threat of socialism. If you fear a socialist world then it is you who is being paranoid, not me.
