Does the average American hate socialists? If so, why?

    No, although there is considerable discomfort with the word "Socialist", the average American already IS one. You get hurt on the job, you expect Worker's Comp. Someone gets disabled, you file for Disability. You certainly do that for your friend or relative, and you certainly want your parents to get their Social Security income rather than supporting them yourself in their old age. But you are probably uncomfortable about the word "Socialism" because Billionaires like Trump have told you it is bad.

    Possibly

    because they have the wrong idea about what socialists actually advocate

    Or because they know they themselves would lose some undeserved privileges if socialism would be applied

    Very few Americans know any Socialists, ie people who stand for the abolition of the wages system and establishment of a classless society.

    Because like hates like.

    And for the record, these are Trump bootlicker sorry excuses for Americans. 🥴

    Don't get the Democrats and moderate Repubs mixed up with Trump bootlicker Republicans.

    Trump bootlickers want world and money domination. The rest of us are survivng with morale.

    most people don't want the government owning everything. the government can't do anything right. the government should get out of people's way and let them be the best they can be. and if Venezuela is anything to go by as an example of socialism, you can give that a very hard pass. CAPITALISM WORKS!!

    No, just the below average Americans. Because socialism would cost the morbidly rich some of their fortunes.
