Capitalist Propaganda: “Greed”

Posted on September 5, 2010 7:36 pm

From 1979, economist Milton Friedman goes knuckles to nuts against Phil Donahue with “Greed”:

Two things struck me while watching this:

1) Liberal talking points haven’t changed.

2) There was once a time in this nation when liberal talk show hosts allowed conservative guests to finish making their points.

Take some notes, Chris Matthews.

    Chris Matthews? Is she still on TV?

    A few more points for you, Harvey:

    3) Liberals still don’t realize how idiotic they look and sound when they go on TV and pretend to be intelligent.

    4) Donahue was yet another TV liberal that spent his life competing for viewers in order to increase sponsorship dollars so that his show might be more successful and he could make more money…umm, the definition of a full-blown capitalist.

  3. Dodsfall says:

    I was shocked to remember there was a time when a liberal would allow a guest to state his point without shouting him down with accusations of racism or corporate payoffs.

    Progressives today have learned they do not have a legitimate logical argument to make, so they now just screech madly and throw their poo.

    I love that the ones who are the hardest on capitalism, Donahue, Michael Moore, Pres Obama, are the ones who try the hardest to benefit from it.

  6. robotimecop says:

    Donahue obviously is not a very good liberal, he never once accused Milton Friedman of being a racist or a homophobe.

  7. Capitalist_B says:

    Friedman’s reliance on direct observation is appalling in an economist. Why, he all but admitted that he’d drop his precious “greed” in an instant if he found an alternative method that did a better job of improving the lives of the lot of humanity(!) We must cling more blindly to our ideologies and mold reality to our positions, not the other way around(!)

    (Isn’t Friedman the coolest?!)

  8. MarkoMancuso says:

    I want to punch Donahue in the face! I am confident this is normal.

  9. DrEvil says:

    Donahue hasn’t learned anything in the last thirty years. A few years ago when he had a show on MSNBC, Neal Boortz basically schooled him the same way. Donahue couldn’t even understand the concept of libertarianism and insisted on referring to Boortz as a conservative. Old Phil is dumb as a box of rocks.

    Have an Evil day
