They even censor The One Himself

HuffPo edits Obama’s joke calling himself ‘strapping young Muslim socialist’ - BizPac Review:

Is O a Muslim? No. But he is an enabler, promoter, protector and apologist for (and to) Islam.

Is O a socialist?  Not in the classical sense of outright "State ownership of the means of production", but in the National Socialist and EuroSocialist sense of regulating your property so heavily that, while you retain paper ownership and fiscal responsibility for it, the government tells more and more how you may, may not or must use it; and of taxing you at such rates as it may deem appropriate, since, in reality, you did not build that yourself and other people have needs more dire than yours and you have made enough money as it is.

Which is fascism, no? Fascism is nebulous, but I am under the strong impression that the single most defining aspect of fascism is its economic policy - the union of state and corporation in a way that affirms private ownership and "capitalism", but where the state directs the actions of these private economic bodies as it sees fit. So, an industry/company gets a call from the dear leader, who instructs them that the nation needs more tanks and less economy cars, or the nation needs more corn and less cotton, or the nation needs some grand ship or zeppelin of unprecedented size to show the nation's strength and prestige - and the private sector retools their factories, changes their crops, or produces or hands over that great ship all for the good of the nation. I could be wrong, but thats how I understand the basic economic model of fascism.

I think that can be part of fascism. It was certainly the National Socialist form of socialism, regulation rather than confiscation.
