A couple of days ago, I noted that the CEO of Whole Foods Market had called ObamaCare a type of fascism. My column in today’s American Spectator discusses how the thought police have cowed him into walking back that statement. This is what he originally said:
Technically speaking, it’s more like fascism. Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn’t own the means of production, but they do control it — and that’s what’s happening with our health care programs and these reforms.
This outraged the Obamazombies, of course, particularly the President’s toad eaters in the “news” media. So, within a couple of days, he was saying things like this:
Well, I think that was a bad choice of words on my part … I don’t know what the right word is.
I regret using that word now because it’s got so much baggage attached to it … I think I’m going to use the phrase government-controlled health care.
What a wimp. He was right the first time but didn’t have the courage to stand up to the media bullies who jumped all over him for his thought crime. To read the rest of this pathetic tale, click here.
