: : Racist? Fascist? Homophobe? Misogynist?

: : The reason I don't defend myself is because I don't care about being called a name. It just doesn't matter. If you want to call me X, fine, have a ball, whatever spins your prop.

: SDF: No, Norman, it's those friendly dictators you support that we're concerned about. And we await the defense of the crimes that will be reported in the little black book of capitalism, too.

: What about it?

: : The targets that you guys present is what interests me, that coupled with the fabulous historical failures of Socialism/Communism/Liberalism/Greeenism.

: SDF: How about the historical failure of Thatcherism for most of the world, as enforced by IMF/ World Bank "austerity plans" and as reported by Laszlo Andor and Martin Summers' MARKET FAILURE and other sources?

Ahhhh, the perfect example; Accuse me of being a Nazi. Fine, I just don't care to respond to that sort of tripe.
Extend the same method of 'argument' and you get the above, ie; nonsensical assertions based on one's own definitions. Contort the definition of 'capitalist' to include the actions of dictators of sovereign countries, misrepresent genocide on the part of foreign leader as being directed from Washington DC for the benefit of Wall St,
create empty but emotional phrases such as 'Thatcherism' and you've got plenty of solid Soviet propaganda ready for the gist mill to make come up with '100 million capitalist deaths'. Is it any wonder the modern Socialist today is the laughing stock of the world?
Sixty years ago you would've been on Goebbel's staff Samual Day Fassbinder.
Anyways, you have to explain why so many people want to come to this country, not Cuba, not Russia, not India, not Africa, not Nicuaraugua, not the Congo, not Beijing, not N. Korea, not Yugoslavia, not Italy, but here, the US, if capitalism is as wicked as you and other Leftist idiots say it is. Why is that Samual Day Fassbinder? What is it that poor and uneducated people all over the world know that you don't? Have they read Hayek and Von Mises? Or have they lived through the political and economic systems that you promote?
