Is MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell a socialist?

There are 37 comments on the dailycaller.com story from Nov 5, 2010, titled Is MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell a socialist?. In it, dailycaller.com reports that:

Lawrence O’Donnell is a socialist. At least, that’s what the MSNBC commentator himself told Glenn Greenwald when they duked it out on the air Friday on “Morning Joe.” “I am a socialist,” O’Donnell said. “I live to the extreme left.” Glenn Greenwald, a columnist for Salon.com, ran a column on Wednesday that attacked the election coverage by the news networks — criticizing O’Donnell’s commentary in particular. “Ten minutes was the absolute maximum I could endure of any one television news outlet last night without having to switch channels in the futile search for something more bearable,” Greenwald wrote, “but almost every time I had MNSBC on, there was Lawrence O’Donnell trying to blame “the Left” and “liberalism” for the Democrats’ political woes.” Greenwald said, “this ‘analysis’ is false,” citing the massive losses of seats by Blue Dog Democrats in the House.

There are different kinds of socialism.

There is socialism in terms of government run social programs that are OFFERED (not mandated) that offers aid to underpriviledged and victims of society as well as the elderly and sick.

Then there is socialistic morals like saaaay, class differentiality. Meaning seperation of people based on wealth, race, and personal life preferences.

I have no quam saying I support the former but denounce the latter.

Am I going to label myself as a "Socialist"? hahaha Not on such a broad term so to give you a spinning point. I label myself as a Will Rogers Democrat with a common sense approach to any and all subjects.

I don't support everything the Dems do, and I support very little the Republicans do,... but I have NEVER feared my government.

290 Bills in the Senate, filibustered by Republicans

27 nominees filibustered in the Senate.

This week, all discussions from Republicans center on repealing healthcare.(Not jobs creation)

Yeah, your party is for the little guy, as long as he is CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

Get that shit outta here Turdblossom.

No I didn't, I said when it comes to taking advantage of Socialism, you and I (and every other American) are no different.

We're all Socialists through our actions.

Words mean nothing.

Why are so many on the right Christian yet against socialism?
Jesus taught socialism.
Why do the Christian right get so upset about taxes?
Jesus just said to render unto Caesar.

Jesus also said, "Forgive them, for they know not what they do".

The right wingers are much like the Islamic extremists. They do their bidding under the guise of religion.

I still think if more people traded their bibles for a bong, the world would be a happier place.
