A New Red Scare Is Coming

From “Second Thought”. ( YouTube / Nebula )

If you thought McCarthyism was gone…well, no such luck. In this episode, we’ll discuss the US’ newest wave of reactionary, anti-communist rhetoric and legislation. As capitalism’s popularity wanes among the American population and the economic system begins to show signs of impending collapse, we should expect more kneejerk measures like these to try to rally support around a failing system.
