I agree on one level that shouting things like "Communist" or "Socialist" is not necessarily attributable to "racism" in every case. However, I do believe that for some, it is a way to mask the racism in a more socially acceptable way.
Yelling something like "Go back to your country" is probably a more clear indication of racism though.
Women are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
but surely you can't overlook the fact that some people do disagree with him simply becasue he is black, or his middle name is hussein?
and surely you can't believe that right wing talk radio/tv hosts don't use the word "hussein" as a code word for "arab"?

All so much blather and so little substance. But that's what happens when you take a subjective view of a nebulous group that may or may not exist and start trying to apply undocumented concepts to prove your unsubstantiated opinion.
There are and will be people who have and will use euphemisms for the N word. Sometimes the ‘socialist’ label is a euphemism. I would not say that it is always that because there are people who call President Obama a socialist because they either do not have an understanding of what socialism is or their definition is overly broad. Some people may believe that child labor laws are ‘socialist’ because they ‘impede’ the rights of a business owner to use the cheapest form of labor that the market can provide.
There are also others who call Mr. Obama a ‘socialist’ just because they know that ‘socialist’ is a pejorative term. The same can be said about using the label Nazi or fascist.
The other thing is on his board the tactic is used as a troll mechanism.
