Sure, Lots Of Capitalists Talk This Way

Carlos Watson (who ?) of MSNBC, said this in 2009:

"Today I want to talk about a word that we're hearing more and more, and that's the word socialist. You hear it from a lot of conservatives these days, that's usually critiquing the President, or more broadly Democrats. And while that's certainly a legitimate critique, there certainly is an ideology that can and should be critiqued at certain times, it also some times is just a kind of a generic conservative bludgeoning tool. And that's alright, too, because you hear it on the Democratic side as well: rightwingnut, what have you.

But what concerns me is when in some of those town hall meetings including the one that we saw in Missouri recently where there were jokes made about lynching, etc., you start to wonder whether in fact the word socialist is becoming a code word, whether or not socialist is becoming the new N-word for frankly for some angry upset birthers and others. I hope that's not the case, but it sure does say to you what David Brooks said the other day on T.V., which is that more credible conservatives have to stand up and say that there's a line that has to be drawn, that there's a line of responsibility that's important, and that extends to the words that we choose including how choose even legitimate words like socialist."

From that point on, calling his Chairmanship a socialist was verboten. It was as if Party Member Syme had struck it from the Newspeak Dictionary as far as the Progressiveviks were concerned. Never mind the fact that is was as true as Global Warming theories are false, the Progressiveviks and their allies in the lamestream press repeatedly wagged their finger at anyone who dared to use the new unword. "Racist!" they cried. "Nazi! Homphobe! I'll bet you don't even recycle! Go worship at your Glenn Beck shrine! Go iron your hood and robes!"

 So what do they say now about Chairman Obama's latest gem ? Take it away, Alinskyite Prime:

 "I do think at a certain point you've made enough money."

 Call me crazy and off my meds, but that's not exactly a capitalist attitude, is it ?

 Even Al Sharpton, everyone's favorite race hustler and anti-semite, knows it's true. Over to you, "Reverend" Al:

 "...the American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they voted for Barack Obama."

 At the risk of being sent to The Ministry of Love for my hatespeech, I'm going to say it loudly. BARACK OBAMA IS A SOCIALIST! Now, for those of you who are still unconvinced, let's take a little stroll down Cloward and Piven Way and let's look at a few tidbits the Ministry of Truth, er...uh...the lamestream media wanted you to forget :

"And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy to people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiments as a way to explain their frustrations"

 "So we're going to provide a $4,000 tuition credit, every student, every year, but, students, you're going to have to give back something in return. You're going to have to participate in community service. You're going to have to work in a homeless shelter, or a veteran's home, or an underserved school or join the Peace Corps." (Funny, in the middle of two wars and all kinds of undeclared shadow wars how he left out joining the military. Another rant for another time.)

 "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times...and then expect that other countries are going to say OK"

 "Because our individual salvation depends on collective salvation."

 "I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors [empahsis mine] and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets" --from Dreams of My Father

(Can anyone imagine our Dear Leader at a Sex Pistols concert ? Neither can I. I think Sid Vicious just rolled over in his grave like the Founders do on a daily basis.)

 "Political discussions, the kind at Occidental had once seemed so intense and purposeful, came to take on the flavor of the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union." From Mao's Little Red of My Father

Of course, we could go on, but why beat a dead socialist horse ? (Don't get me started on that "no one should go broke because they become sick" or "no one should go broke because they go to college" crap, either.)

The handwriting is on the Berlin Wall, folks. We The People are going to be turned into We The Victims.

God help us all.
