The 2020 election has been unique in that instead of lying about support for socialism, many Democrats are coming right out and admitting it.
This is making some Democrats uneasy.
Even die-hard liberal Chris Matthews of MSNBC is not liking it.
The New York Post reports:
Chris Matthews warns of ‘executions in Central Park’ if socialism wins
Better dead than red … said Chris Matthews.
The MSNBC host went into a protracted monologue after the Democratic debate in New Hampshire Friday night in which he condemned the evils of socialism and warned of public executions in Central Park if it ever came to the United States.
“I have my own views of the word socialist and I’ll be glad to share them with you in private and they go back to the early 1950s,” he told a post-debate analysis panel.
“I have an attitude about them. I remember the Cold War. I have an attitude toward [Fidel] Castro,” he added. “I believe if Castro and the reds had won the Cold War there would have been executions in Central Park and I might have been one of the ones getting executed. And certain other people would be there cheering.”

Here’s another clip from the same segment:
When discussing Bernie Sanders, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews goes on a rant against socialism:
“I’ve seen what socialism is like and I don’t like it.”

When Democrats have gone too far left for Chris Matthews, that should tell you something.
It’s shocking that he would say this on the air.
