Someone who has difficulty distinguishing between social and economic ideas. They tend to believe that by allowing "economic freedom" they are promoting democracy and liberty, and that the economic control hurts them greatly. At the same time, they are quick to eliminate freedom that really does affect people's well-being.
Republican: OMGWTFBBQ you Democrats are such fascists!
Democrat: Actually, fascists believe in a free economy and social control, which is the complete opposite of our beliefs and very similar to your Republican view.
Socialist: The USSR was not real communism. We are equated with fascists, but usually we believe in more social freedom than anyone except anarchists.
A late '70s/early '80s post punk band. One of the first and one of the best, they have inspired most of the alternative scene around today. Although never too famous, the cult group is widely acclaimed by critics and musicians. Basssists and drummers love the fantastic playing of rhythm section Dave Allen and Hugo Burnham, while guitarists are amazed by Andy Gill's original style that lacks solos or any traditional method. A great band with a lot to say about economics, war, and society in general.
Some diehard Go4 fans get mad that bands like Franz Ferdinand, The Futureheads, Arctic Monkeys, and especially Bloc Party are sound so much like Gang of Four. I think it's great that they're finally getting some well-deserved recognition after 25 years.
Members of the radical Islam movement. As long as they are losing, they are allowed to be killed, beaten, arrested, convicted of war crimes, and called terrorists.

While the USSR was occupying Afghanistan in the 80s, Soviets said that rebels were counter-revolutionaries and insurgents, whereas the US called them freedom fighters. The freedom fighters were members of the same group as "insurgents" in Iraq today.
To kill, torture, and rule imperially.
Nationalist: I'm so glad we liberated those Iraqis!
Socialist: Yeah, the more people we liberate the fewer hate us.

A classic tale revealing the evils of captialism.
