When in doubt, go with a red scare

A week ago, Fox News hosted a discussion, exploring whether market instability is the fault of Democrats. As the Republican network saw it, Wall Street is worried that a Dem will win the presidency in November, and as a result, investors are feel anxiety about the future. This anxiety leads to volatility, and before you know it, presto — Dems are to blame for the market.

Most notably, Fox News featured analysis from Jonathan Hoenig, who (I kid you not) represented CapitalistPig Asset Management, and told Fox News viewers:

"What worries me about the Democrats is that if you listen to them, their message is so explicitly socialist. I mean, at every opportunity they seem to have this contempt for capitalism, this relentless pursuit of collectivism and this total distrust for free markets. If you put all the politics aside, their goal is a national health care program. Their goal is environmentalism. They see bigger government in every element of public life. That has never been good for America and it has never been good for the market either."

'Explicitly socialist." He was not, in case you were wondering, kidding. Jonathan Hoenig, whose work I am not familiar with, seriously argued that Clinton, Edwards, and Obama "seem" to have "contempt for capitalism."

Don't be surprised if this is part of a trend. Glenn Beck, resident clown at CNN's Headline News, launched his own red scare on the air this week.

On the January 24 edition of his CNN Headline News program, Glenn Beck asserted that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton's desire "to get back to the appropriate balance of power between government and the market … sounds like the Soviet Union," and that "Comrade Clinton has railed against the excesses of the offensive executive pay packages and an out of whack tax code that favors the wealthy while holding down the middle class." […]

Beck added that "promising to steal from the rich and give to the poor" only worked for former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin "because he killed 50 million people to force them to live that way." He concluded that Clinton's "fiscal ideas are plenty reason enough" not to vote for her, adding: "Unless you're [Venezuelan President] Hugo Chavez." Later in the program, Beck said of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards: "Now, put a red star on his furry head. He's a communist."

Remember, CNN, home of the self-described "best political team on television," pays this nut handsomely.

I love Glenn Beck.

In fact I just bought his book.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Um yeah, the democrats are the masterminds of a lot of evil socialist ploys.

What I especially hate is Medicare (it was much better when old people couldn't afford to get sick) and Social Security (we should allow the free market to ensure that the elderly are clothed and fed, it worked great prior to the institution of Social Security)

Its just cartoon politics - part of how the media likes to polarise things.

"Hard Left" in the US means Center-right everywhere else. That's pretty funny - but "save us from these evil, socialist center-rightists" doesn't really have the same ring to it ;)

Yep. That'll free up some funds for more wars which in turn will give way to more no bid government contracts to Halliburton. That's how capitalism works under a Republican administration.

Who's paying for the war, Marc? Who gave no bid contracts as a consequence of the war in Iraq? You gotta stop drinking that kool-aid and switch to real juice called the truth...it'll set you free, brother.
