Everything that America stands for is being opposed by the resurgence of communism with its profound hatred of private property as the root of alienation and exploitation in society. Inequality and the injustice that is believed to flow out of that inequality of ownership is, for the communist mentality, the starting point for a radical critique of American society, indeed of Western Civilization. The left rejects belief in and gratitude for the fact that the U.S. rose out of the British rights framework which is inherently capitalistic. The liberty enshrined in our leading documents and law is closely justified by its support of private property as an inalienable right and by Christian values derived from a 2000 year old abiding faith in the God of the Bible and in Christ His Son. Communism, by contrast, arose out of a Germanic cultural and dialectical mindset that was atheistic, so we are not surprised that communism should be so repulsive to our citizens.
In American politics we have many contenders for the Democrat Presidential nomination using deceptive rubrics such as Democratic Socialism, Green New Deal, Black Lives Matter (remember Stokely Carmichael in the sixties with the clenched fist power to the people?), progressivism, and even liberalism in a way wholly different from classical liberalism. Bernie Sanders self-labels as a Democratic Socialist, but has participated in the Democratic caucus in the Senate, and is now a leading contender for the Democrat Party nomination for President. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez self-labels as a Socialist but was elected to Congress as a Democrat.

I wouldn’t mind if the idiot learns about hammers by thumping his thumb but I’d just as soon he doesn’t thump mine.
Democratic socialism = socialism = communism (and if you don’t agree with them then it’s off to the gulags for you).
Only the visible aspect of communism is resurging, its body has been hard at work on its "long march" for many decades.
It is now going visible because it is unafraid of public criticism - indeed, it has gained growing vocal public support and is unconcerned about effective political opposition.
Some argue America's education system, its media and a sufficient number of its politicians are so contaminated that we have passed the tipping point.
If you have any doubt, find Yuri Bezmenov on YouTube and spend a few minutes listening to his thought from the 80's.
Socialism/Comunism - Where you have no rights and politicians control every aspect of your life, while enriching themselves at your expense.
Now that they have destroyed the goose that laid the golden egg, so to speak, Labor can't score enough recruits
So NOW-Liberals and Communists have to educate A NEW group of disaffected losers that they TOO are exploited, disserved, cheated, oppressed... etc. “There is no lie on earth the public gobbles-up as greedily than the lie that they are cheated, oppressed, exploited... etc.”
