Last November, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell proudly declared himself a socialist on national television.
On Wednesday, "The Last Word" host took this a huge step further saying the whole idea that Americans are rugged individualists is an illusion because they're all really socialists (video follows with transcript and commentary):
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: From our first days as a nation, we have put our faith in free markets and free enterprise as the engine of America's wealth and prosperity. More than citizens of any other country, we are rugged individualists, a self-reliant people, with a healthy skepticism of too much government.

He does look like the type.
Most Americans are too busy working to know or care about what this socialist thing may be.
The ones living off the system generally paid in, or are to stupid to care.
Lawrence O’Donnell is probably worth over $100 million from his West Wing residuals.
Just another limousine liberal who wants his hand in your pocket to pay for his socialism.
I really hate scumbag liberal hypocrites like this.
Has anyone else noticed that socialism is never for the actual socialists. but only for us proles ?
Lawrencio, you are a pussy with a loud mouth and I’d bet you crumple faster than crepe paper.
He needs to leave the liberal cloister, get out in flyover country and meet real people who actually perform some useful work for a living.
Socialists are the scum of the earth.
Unfortunately, O’Donnell is more correct than we would like to admit. Look at how Americans welcomed the New Deal and Great Society socialistic takeovers from government. Almost without substantial debate. And despite their socialistic nature, Republicans won’t even challenge them to this day.
He is correct when speaking of urban detritus, trash and filth washed and deposited in American cities.
Yeah, I thought so, too./sarc
You are being nice. Socialists live to destroy our Republic and transform it into a hellhole. If they succeed and collapse our Republic, then I pray that they receive true justice, without any mercy. Absolutely no mercy.
Make no mistake, they are out to destroy our Country as it exists; they are the enemy of Freedom. We are fighting a slow motion war -- they are just not man enough to fight outright. Their violence is through increased taxes, regulations, and relentless verbal assault on our way our life.
They are truly the enemy within. I pray enough Americans wake up before we reach the point of no return.
You’re preaching to the choir.
