Is Hillary Clinton a socialist? Lou Dobbs seems to think so. During the Fox Business Network’s Thursday night coverage of the Democratic National Convention, the popular host remarked Clinton’s acceptance speech gave off socialist vibes.
“From that little girl to now, somehow along the way she became as close to a socialist as I could ever possibly imagined,” Dobbs said. “I gotta believe there are CEOs and shareholders by the millions across the country who are wondering, ‘Oh my gosh, they’re going after my company!'”
But William Murray, chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition, sees the Democratic nominee as more of a hybrid.
“What I hear in Hillary is a central planner, which is socialist in nature but also appeals to crony capitalists,” Murray told WND.
Murray, who chronicled the history of central planning in his book “Utopian Road to Hell: Enslaving America and the World with Central Planning,” asserted big corporations have nothing to fear from a Hillary presidency, but small businesses will get crushed by her.
“She is a socialist, yes, but she’s also a crony capitalist,” he said. “She will help Wall Street, she will help the big defense contractors, and she will do this all at the expense of real competition and the little man. If we take a look at China, we take a look at the big socialist countries in Europe like France, they utilize the big corporations in order to achieve their socialist agenda.”
