DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS OF

AMERICA TO KNOW WHAT A REAL

SOCIALIST WAS?

>> WE DON'T THINK THAT THE

DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS OF

AMERICA ARE SOCIALISTS.

>> WAIT SO, THEY ARE NOT

SOCIALIST.

>> NOT IN OUR OPINION.

>> THIS GUY WHO APPARENTLY

THINKS CAN PULL OFF THIS HAT,

HE IS RICK ALEXANDER OF THE

SOCIALIST ORGANIZER PARTY.

>> I WOULD SAY WE STAND FOR

THE 99% MORE THAN THEY DO

ALSO THEY SOUNDED GIND OF

LIKE SOCIALISTS, ARE YOU

SURE THEY ARE NOT SOCIALIST.

ARE SOCIALISTS BUT THEY

STILL REPRESENT THE 1%.

OKAY.

ARE YOU NOT A SOCIALIST.

>> NOW I'M NOT TRAYING TO

START NOTHING BUT THE

SOCIALIST ORGANIZER SAYS

THAT YOU'RE ACTUALLY WORKING

FOR THE 1%.

SUCCESSFUL IN AFFIXING HIS

SOCIALISM IS USED TODAY IN

THE AMERICAN POLITICAL

CONTEXT LARGELY AS A KIND OF

RHETORICAL WEAPON AGAINST

ONE'S ENEMIES.

>> WHALE THIS GUY REMINDED

ME OF WHY I LEFT COLLEGE, I

STILL DIDN'T KNOW WHY SO

MANY PEOPLE CALLED OBAMA A

SOCIALIST.

SO I FOUND THE NEXT PERSON.

>> I BELIEVE HE'S A HYBRID,

A SOCIALIST COMBINED WITH A

FASCIST.

>> THAT IS THE WORST KIND OF

HYBRID.

>> I THINK HE'S A SOCIALIST

BECAUSE HE WANTS TO TAKE MY

MONEY WITHOUT MY PERMISSION

THAT I PAY THE IRS AND USE

IT TO BAIL OUT GM AND

CHRYSLER.

>> SO HE'S WORKING WITH BIG

BUSINESSES TO TURN AMERICA

IN A SOCIALIST NIGHTMARE?

>> THAT IS PRETTY CLARE,

YEAH.

>> OKAY SO, YOU CAN PROVE TO

ME THAT OBAMA IS A

SOCIALIST.

>> WELL, I THINK IF YOU

WATCH EVERYTHING THAT'S

HAPPENED OVER THE LAST THREE

YEARS IT'S CLEAR WILL YOU

FIND THAT HE PRETTY MUCH

FULL BLOWN SOCIALIST SYSTEM

OF REDISTRIBUTION.

>> RIGHT, BUT DO YOU HAVE

PROOF.

>> I, LISTEN I CAN ONLY

GUESS BUT I'M WATCHING IT

EVERY DAY.

>> SO YOU CAN FEEL IT.

>> IT'S A FELL THERE IS NO

PHYSICAL PROOF.

>> AND IN TODAY'S DAY AND

AGE HAVING NO PROOF IS GOOD

ENOUGH FOR ME.
