In a recent commentary, country music legend Charlie Daniels says he believes socialism might be coming to America and places a lot of the blame on our country’s public school system.

He also says the U.S. might not elect a socialist in 2020, but that doesn’t mean we’re out of danger’s path.

“I don’t believe that America will accept or elect a socialist candidate in this election cycle, but if something isn’t done about the education of the coming generations there will be a successful socialist candidate sometime in America’s future,” Daniels said on his website.

Daniels said it won’t necessarily be “a crusty old pseudo-communist like Bernie Sanders or a shrill-voiced shrew-like Elizabeth Warren,” but perhaps, “some even-tempered, unflappable young man or woman who does not resort to name calling and political histrionics, but simply stays on message proclaiming the universal fairness of a system that makes sure everybody is treated equally.”

Daniels’ further explained how some future socialist wolf in sheep’s clothing might emerge.

“A person who has been schooled and prepared for the task of selling the masses on the nobility of collectivism,” Daniels said. “A smooth, even-tempered individual who will have all the answers at their fingertips, a rebuff for every objection, an explanation for every instance of failure, the mechanics and mistakes that had turned every other socialist experiment into a disaster.”

“And this likable, sophisticated, urbane new face will become the darling of the media and dominate the airwaves, the hero of the Hollywood airheads, magazine covers and TV specials the wunderkind, the hope of America, adored by leftist governments around the world,” he added.

Daniels Has Long Supported Trump

Daniels has been a longtime champion for conservative causes and an avid supporter of President Donald Trump.

On the Democrats’ Russian hoax, Daniels said last year, “I don’t think there’s anybody in Congress who actually thinks that anybody in the Trump administration actually colluded with the Russians to the detriment of the United States. You know, I don’t think there’s anybody who really believes that. I think they’re just doing it, trying to make political points — trying to get one guy thrown out of office and another one put in.”

“You know, if all the time, if all this energy, was put together on something meaningful …” he added.

Charlie Daniels is currently on tour with award-winning country artist Travis Tritt.
