Punishing Achievement

Penn and Teller characterize the Obama tax plan. (I doubting Penn and Teller had anything at all to do with this video, but they're in it)

(via Randy)

The folks making that observation at the end of the video apparently don't know that the word "socialist" is code for black. (What am I saying? Of course they know that. They're the ones using the code!)

All code aside, for many Americans, a socialist is a rather discredited thing to be, what with all the history of mass murder and famine and gulags and all. Which is why this evidence is being avoided like the plague by the major media. Evidence of Sarah Palin's husband's fringe party affiliation 20 years ago is newsworthy for our hard-working press, but the prior political party memberships of the Democratic presidential candidate are off limits. Talk about a code.

Read more about Obama's relationship to the socialist left in the U.S. Congress. It's helpful to remember that there is an ongoing movement within the U.S. government to radically redistribute wealth and restructure the entire economy according to collectivist principles. And voters deserve to see the extent to which Barack Obama is a part of that movement.
