Hahaha this is fantastic.
Well everyone loves to talk about socialism as if it's something that's well known, and this video featuring Glenn Beck demonstrates the problem with this.
As you can see, Glenn Beck is very, very loose with the term "Socialist", to which he applies to many programs and even countries that the Actual Socialist Vising The Program states outright are not socialist things.
Beck emphasizes how important it is to talk to real socialists if this is something America is dealing with today, and this socialist seems to disagree fundamentally on what socialism is. Beck of course scoffs it off with clownish behavior, funny faces and jokes, but the guest is very accurate.
The best point:
Of the 4 candidates on the ballot for the 2008 Presidential /Vice Presidential election, Sarah Palin was the most socialist.
Why? Because as Governor, she decided that oil profits would be collectively owned by the people of Alaska, and passed legislation that took money from oil companies and distributed it among the masses.
Holy shit that's a slam dunk. Beck is literally speechless so he makes funny faces.
The problem I see here is that not only are the two sides of debate not seeing things differently, they are using the same words to signify extremely different things, so when a Tea Party person talks about Socialism and an actual Socialist talks about Socialism, they are talking about VERY different things.
