"illegals coming in and killing cops" is pretty baseless, but these people will find some article where it happened and make it seem like it's some widespread phenomenon when its statistically all but non-existent.
there are people i know who either they or their fam came from socialist countries who legit fear socialism, and while they may be using the worst examples (venezuela vs denmark) as their basis, i can at least understand their concern on some level. Then there are those like your neighbor where 'socialism' it's just an all encompassing buzz word for everything they're scared of, which is mainly darker people.
