Liberal critics love to mock the right when we use the tag lines Socialism or Communism when describing the direction President Obama is taking our country. Ridiculing people and facts is SOP (standard operating procedure) in their circles mainly because it makes them feel superior and gives them a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
Although most of the time, we on the right, use those words for affect in this instance and instances of policy enacted over that past 120 or so days — it’s completely appropriate!
State Run T.V. is one of the primary indicators (and one of the best tool s wielded by those who seek to control media, message, and news) that socialism is creeping into your society. Now it seems as though our White House and this administration has created and is using its own media to report on events!
Here’s and example from the White House Youtube Page:
Now I know what your saying, so what? this is no big deal…. and you might be right but barring other media from coverage because you apparently want it covered a certain way is exactly what State Run T.V. is!

The next step into Socialism, and Communism, is the existence of state ran television. Most people in this country wouldn’t look at this hard, since we are surrounded by constant media, but the White House has decided to have it’s own media reporting on events.
Read the TV pool report: “Your Pool was not allowed to go over and shoot POTUS with the team shooting hoops. We protested loudly.”
Now we know why: Obama White House officials decided to do their own media report on the visit, complete with cuts, interviews, and chyrons identifying who’s speaking.
Also, just like a network, they have their own little logo!
Critics will always view the beginning small steps toward socialism as irrelevant minor issues that have no real chance of taking hold or becoming the standard for a couple of reasons A) because they mostly agree with them B) because these changes to Socialism or Communism don’t happen overnight the argument is a non-starter.
The second reason is exactly the plan liberals have laid out and for decades in order to pass their radical agenda — not with sweeping, shocking reform but in increments.

If state run television. nationalize banking, nationalized health care, silencing the opposition, and tracking it’s citizens isn’t socialism, then you would also enjoy living in China. I hear they are hiring.
