Political Wire - Rep. Steve King (R-IA) declared in a radio interview that same sex marriage is part of a socialist agenda to undermine "the foundations of individual rights and liberties." Said King: "Not only is it a radical social idea, it is a purely socialist concept in the final analysis."

Socialist regimes have tended to be quite reactionary, when it comes to 'family values'.
Eric Honecker's last argument for leaving the wall up was that it kept AIDS out of Eastern Europe, by blocking the spread of "decadent Western sexual mores" (i.e.: the homosexuals).

When reactionaries use words like socialism, it has nothing to do with history or dictionary definitions. "Socialism" is just the latest hot-button word for everything that good old-fashioned conservatives consider evil. It has neatly replaced some of its predecessors like "communism", "atheism", "anarchy", and "liberal".

The propagandists who use such words have no knowledge of or regard for what the words actually mean. They just twist them around to hypnotize their undereducated herds of human cattle into stampeding against anything that resembles progress, reason, or a better life themselves.
