Socialist and Racist

These are two words I hear tossed around a lot in the "state run" media. So many media people and detractors of the 912 movement use these terms and they mean different things to different people.

These are the webster dictionary meanings for these terms:

racism: belief that some races of men are by nature superior to others.
When we oppose health care, amnesty or cap and trade, they call us racists. What does opposing an unconstitutional law have to do with superiority of race?

socialism: any of various economic and political theories or social systems based on collective or government ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.
Is the takeover of GM, AIG and other financial institutions good examples? How about complete ownership of all college loans? Do they fit the definition? If so, why won't the government and the media call this what it is?

Political correctness is putting a blindfold on it's citizens. Call it like it is!

  1. Here here! Among the many things manipulated and used for ideological means has been our language. Look how easily "liberal" was switched for "progressive" in the 30's or 40's and how "progressive" is being brought back into use now since it lost its negative connotation, or at least sounds more acceptable than liberal does today.

    NPR has recently officially changed the terms it uses for those who defend the sanctity of life and those who promote abortion to be, supposedly, value neutral. I can't give the approved terms here but I'm pretty sure pro-life is not to be used.

    Hard core "choicers" have never called us pro-life, but used the negative connotation anti-abortion and called themselves by the positive sounding pro-choice. What could be more American after all than giving people a choice.

    Calling someone a socialist has moved to the domain of name calling. How dare we?
