For Glenn Beck


Have you heard it on the news
About this fascist groove thang
Evil men with racist views
Spreading all across the land


Don’t just sit there on your ass
Unlock that funky chaindance
Brothers, sisters shoot your best
We don’t need this fascist groove thang
Brothers, sisters, we don’t need this fascist groove thang
History will repeat itself
Crisis point we’re near the hour
Counterforce will do no good
Hot you ass I feel your power
Hitler proves that funky stuff
Is not for you and me girl
Europe’s an unhappy land
They’ve had their fascist groove thang
Brothers, sisters, we don’t need this fascist groove thang
Democrats are out of power
Across that great wide ocean
Reagan’s president elect
Fascist god in motion
Generals tell him what to do
Stop your good time dancing
Train their guns on me and you
Fascist thang advancing
Brothers, sisters, we don’t need this fascist groove thang
Sisters, brothers lend a hand
Increase our population
Grab that groove thang by the throat
And throw it in the ocean
You’re real tonight you move my soul
Let’s cruise out of the dance war
Come out your house and dance your dance
Shake that fascist groove thang
Gotta say I really like this later version:

And this dance remix:

  1. WOW! That’s completely original: a Lefty calling anything or anyone he doesn’t like or who disagrees with his narrow-minded ideology a “fascist”. Well, original except people like: Stalin, Mao, Castro, Kim Il Sung, and Pol Pot and completely ignoring the fact that Mussolini (who created “fascism”) started out on the international left and his fascism was really nationalized socialism (loving universal healthcare, minimum wages, universal education, Social Security and absolutely hating Capitalism and America)

  2. A government is socialistic if it is inherently hostile to Capitalism, if it refuses to let a market economy flourish. Socialism is basically Corporatism, whether you have multiple corporations serving the state “for the people” or the state being a corporation with an absolute monopoly on production (which is the far-leftie version, outside the impossibility of Anarchism).
    Now Americanism, which Beck favors, is a system with a market economy, highly-decentralized and checked power, and a bill of rights that vigorously defend a set core rights that are never up for a democratic vote.

  3. Socialism is corporatism? And it is also against capitalism?
    You’re a very confused person.
    Question: why are conservatives and teabaggers almost completely funded by big, monopolistic corporations, and Democrats are not? Why do you think the Koch brothers and the Walton family (bother very near the top of the wealthiest Americans list) are some of the primary funders of the right?
    Conservatives are not against decentralized power. What do you think a huge, $1.3 trillion military budget (Reagan and Bush) is ABOUT?
    You might be surprised to find that progressives and the honest tea baggers have a lot of common ground, if you are willing to honestly examine ways to restrict the power of large, monopolistic corporations over our lives.
    Unfortunately everything Beck and the rest of the right favor would greatly increase the power and wealth of the largest corporations at the expense of smaller corporations, small businesses and the rest of us.

  4. Another question:
    Is building a public road “socialism?”
    I know conservatives hate public schools, but what about the Interstate Highway System that Eisenhower built. (And, yes, I know that the right thought Eisenhower was a communist agent…)

  5. Where to begin. When faced with an ideological spiel based on ignorance it’s difficult to find a starting point.
    1) why are conservatives and teabaggers almost completely funded by big, monopolistic corporations, and Democrats are not? Why do you think the Koch brothers and the Walton family (bother very near the top of the wealthiest Americans list) are some of the primary funders of the right?
    Most “grassroots” dem orgranizations (ACORN, SEIU) aren’t even such; they’re top-down organizations. Evidence (besides the federal funding records you can find) is the pre-printed signs, T-shirts, cards and even pre-written chants that are given out along with the busing that the centralized leadership pays for.
    But onto the idea that the “Tea Party” is “completely funded” by corporations. The Koch brothers funded Americans For Prosperity and FreedomWorks. Two advocacy groups that: 1) don’t run the Tea Party, and have 2) Very little to do in organizing it since there are hundreds of such advocacy groups nationwide that make up the Tea Party. See
    here.

    Besides, the Dems now get
    more money
    from corporations than the GOP does.
    2)What do you think a huge, $1.3 trillion military budget (Reagan and Bush) is ABOUT?
    That’s the Defense Budget, which the overwhelming majority goes to foreign aid (remember the aid for Haiti in the last Defense bill?). The rest (about $450 billion) is split among troop pay and training, equipment, Research Grants, the G.I. Bill, Military Academies, ROTC scholarships, etc. Yes, that’s right, of the sliver of the Federal Budget the Pentagon sees the majority of it is used for education.
    But, even then I agree that we should stop spending our “blood and treasure” on foreign wars.
    But, in reality, it’s the social spending that’s the problem. President Obama’s utterly failed so-called “stimulus” spending has now cost more than Bush spent on his wars.
    And, my point wasn’t I am anti-corporate. In a market economy, where the government doesn’t play favorites, corporations can exist and be a benefit to the nation. The problem comes when (In socialist fascism) the government favors and lets control the means of production (labor and other resources) a few corporation; or in a socialist economy, the government controls all means of production (like the health care industry, the education industry, the auto industry, food production, housing production, etc*) and itself become just a corporation itself.
    Yes, there is common ground between “progressives” and Tea Party members. But the “progressives” need to stop saying “TeaBaggers” and they need to put aside their blinding ideology and listen.
    Building a road? Eh, there are functions in an economy we don’t want the market to take care of. It’s not that the market can’t do it more efficiently, it’s just that it’s better for society to have it out of the hands of the market. Things like courts, the military and security. The market can do these things more efficiently, but these things are not judged by their efficiency; but by an output that is just. So it is necessary to have a little bit of Socialism mixed in with the market economy. To use an analogy: to drink a little bit of a poison (alcohol or socialism) can be good for the system; to overload the system with any poison (alcohol or socialism) kills it.
    I know you’ll just dismiss the links I put in as “right-wing links”; but you shouldn’t, they really argue from fact for their points.
    *Starting to sound like the Obama economy, right? But Obamanomics really is based on corporatism; just a corporatism that wishes to turn the U.S.A. into a monocorporation.

  7. Rather than respond to all the nonsense in that comment, just this:
    “That’s the Defense Budget, which the overwhelming majority goes to foreign aid (remember the aid for Haiti in the last Defense bill?). ”
    There is a thing called “The Google”, and people can go look things up. $2.9 billion went to help Haiti. The foreign aid budget is I think about $25 billion out of around $1.3 trillion military budget.
    (Note for teabaggers, billion has 9 zeroes, trillion has 12.)
