Whole Foods CEO: ObamaCare Is "Fascism"

This Whole Foods guy is not what I expected the Whole Foods guy to be.

choing his statement yesterday that he regrets using the word “fascism,” Mackey explained, “That was a bad choice of words, but traditionally socialism means that the means of production are run by the government and in fascism the means of production are still owned by private individuals but they’re controlled by the government. And what’s happening. Our health care system is moving away from free enterprise capitalism towards greater governmental control. That was a poor choice of words due to the baggage and associations that go along with it. So now I’m just calling it ‘government-controlled health care.’”

An unsatisfied Costello then challenged Mackey, saying, “You realize when you say ‘fascism,’ it brings up Nazi Germany and all sorts of things. And we really want that kind language out of our public forum at the moment, don’t we?”

“Apparently you can’t use that word in America any longer, it’s taboo,” Mackey fired back.

I'm sure we all remember the media constantly objecting to "fascist" comparisons for George W. Bush.

“You realize when you say ‘fascism,’ it brings up Nazi Germany and all
sorts of things. And we really want that kind language out of our public
forum at the moment, don’t we?”

"at the moment". hmmm...

It is interesting how we can no longer call what is "fascist", "fascist". That term became associated with Moussolini and, through him, with Hitler and Nazis. On its own, it's a legitimate political and economic philosophy. In fact, many people in this country, though they don't acknowledge it by that name, seem to subscribe to it.

"Legitimate" does not mean "right".

-----------------------------------------
I think he means that it's a poor choice in that calling something "fascist" tends to invoke a knee-jerk reaction as opposed to an honest evaluation of what the word really means. So instead of honestly evaluating his statement, people decide that since they can't find any gun-toting secret police then his statement must not be true.

Posted by: junior at January 18, 2013 01:10 PM (UWFpX)

38 This guy has said stuff like this before.

He talked about revamping his company's health care to a voucher system that put the onus on employees to price shop and not abuse/waste their vouchers recklessly. You know, free market style. It was totally at odds with the entrenched liberal mindset about what employer healthcare should be, i.e. pay for all my shit at 100%. His system actually worked and saved him and his workers money and both sides were satisfied with how Mackey's plan worked.

He's still a libtard who voted for TFG. Only he's kind of like Steve Jobs, his real-world policies are at odds with what his politics are.

What's outrageous is that a guy whose company employs 73,000 people should be concerned about costs. How dare he pay any mind to increasing costs per employee. Just follow Obama, don't complain and get a waiver. It's what should be done.

Oh, you may not specifically need gas chambers and goose steps, but you'll have the functional equivalent nonetheless. There is a reason that every Statist regime from the Nazis to Mussolini's Italy to Stalinist Russia to Moaist China racked up huge body-counts.

Mass-murder and Statism go together like a horse and carriage.

47 Nazi Germany was fascist. It was not the ONLY fascist government to ever exist, and its fall did not mean the terminal end of fascism. If we're not allowed to suggest that something fascist is, in fact, fascist, just because by doing so we "conjure up images of Nazis," then in a few years we'll have to create another word for the exact same definition, which in another few decades we'll ALSO have to strike from the language.

"You do realize that when you use the term Obamunism it conjures up images of the Obama regime and the free shit army, right? And we really want that kind language out of our public forum at the moment, don’t we?"

Was a slur applied by the transnational-socialist USSR against their WWII enemy national-socialist Germany because attacking fellow socialists does not work well in propaganda, so they used Italy's fascist party as a surrogate slur.

If you actually believed that, and were tired of Bush, a vote for TFG (the first time) does not actually qualify you for the death camps. It's just strikes 1 and 2.

59 I think in reality he probably calls himself a Libertarian.

I would agree, he is certainly a capitalist though, and he knows his customers. It was pretty damn brave of the guy to say anything against Obammy. But I think he is safe because they do not take EBT. That is the real reason liberals love to go there. They claim its organic and all that crap but they really hate the "little" people who are actually on govmint assistance.

--- I should say I do not think they take EBT, I know the fresh market near me does not take EBT. Someone in front of me in line flashed a food stamp card at the cashier, and he looked at the customer like they had just stepped in fresh shit. He then said "We have never taken that here".

60 he's right, it is fascism. It's just that the word fascism acquired a really bad meaning after the left stopped admiring it and starting using it to describe Reagan, Bush, and anyone else who disagrees with them.

"Roosevelt himself called Mussolini “admirable” and professed
that he was “deeply impressed by what he has accomplished.” The
admiration was mutual. In a laudatory review of Roosevelt’s 1933
book Looking Forward, Mussolini wrote, “Reminiscent of
Fascism is the principle that the state no longer leaves the
economy to its own devices.…Without question, the mood accompanying
this sea change resembles that of Fascism.” "

Actually, Ron Paul had it right when he called it "corporatism".

Fascism, the word, has it's root in fascis, or the symbolic bundling of grass or wheat after harvest. The idea is to bundle together the enterprises of the individual under the approval of the State, for greater social strength.

It works, until it doesn't work so well, when people revolt or disagree with what the State wants.

And this is what Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama Jones wanted all along, if you understand what the New Party in Chicago was, which he was a part of in the 1990's , and which the record ofhas been partially scrubbed from the public record.

I'm a big follower of the HGTV fix 'em up shows. They had one recently where a 'vegan' couple was deciding whether to sell their house or list it. The pair of them had as much energy as a 7.5 watt night light bulb in the middle of a power outage. It was pathetic to watch. It was like -- what is the matter with this couple? What possible clue do we have that would explain their loss of energy, exuberance, ability to make decisions? It was a mystery to me.

Well, we do live now in a proto-facist state. That is the reality.

This is what Obama, Organizing for America, David Axelrod and a host of others wanted. The idea that we are a Constitutional Republic is quaint but not operational. It has been questionable for some years, but Obama has put an end to that.

There is no going back, either. There will be no re-birth of the Republic that we once might have known. The political class has gotten a taste of this and likes it, so there is no reprieve from a change of parties in power. We are going to have to live with this for some time, until the culture changes, until we have bloody revolution, or until the country splits apart (subset of the bloody revolution).
The idiots in the Massive Bullshit Media love it, until the government starts to turn on them, which it will in time. It will be a little fun to what those idiots squeal like the little piglets they are.

I honestly don't think Libtards have the wherewithal to deny themselves anything. They might be able to go without their organically grown, locally sourced cruelty-free, sustainably harvested arugula for maybe a week or two, but I don't think their "boycott" will last beyond that. Remember, these are insufferable, self-important, selfish idiots who really aren't into any kind of self-sacrifice. Plus liberals always operate on the assumption that "someone else" will do it. They don't assume personal responsibility, and they always think someone else will pick up their slack.

156 Fascism never was a coherent theory. What it really boiled down to was "what I think is best, is best, and I need the power to enforce it with no checks."

I fail to see how that's any different than the liberal position today. Fascism wasn't limited to the Nazis; the original Fascists didn't go quite as murder happy but didn't do much to improve Italy, either, despite their deluded belief in Il Duce.

Actually, if you ever get a chance, read a biography on Mussolini. He really was the archetypical liberal. He believed in his own infallibility, got the chance to prove it, failed miserably, become whiny and depressed, but never allowed his public persona to admit of doubt.

Not entirely true.

Only pussies regularly shop at Whole Foods. But their produce really is much better (and they do sell non-organic stuff) than most grocery stores around here.

I make my own salsa every now and again. If I want it to be really good, I go to WF for my jalepeno and habenero peppers. Also, if I want really good cheese I'll go there.

For anything else, though, I'll stick with Kroger, Aldi, or Walmart.

Once I had to go there to get some specilized sugar for homebrewing (that was a bit strange.)Also, I might go there to get something from their deli counter (like premade chicken salad.)

Ponder this in light of recent discoveries.

David Gregory wouldn't get indicted on 21 counts of bribery and wire fraud. Why is wrong when black people do it?

Evaluate their claims in their context. It's bogus, but it's not completely bogus. Many cynics have simply adapted themselves to their environment. This is what you get from a lot of black democrats in response to this type of corruption - oh, sure punish the blackdemocrats for lawbreaking, but you don't punish the white democrats for the same shit.

And we don't, we really don't! Equality under the law is mostly a farce in this country, which invites that sort of speculation amongst the racially aggravated.

You know what is most galling about that interview -- rather than focusing on the substance of his objections to Obamacare, she wanted to shame him for using the word Fascist. She then had the gall to ask him why he was even daring to speak out against the law.



Of course, why would any of us, least of all a CEO of a company employing 73,000 people, have the need to speak on matters of public concern. We have the media and the liberals to tell us what the right opinions are. Once the party line is established, there is no more need for us to question.



I realize the media has always been liberal (at least for the last 50 or 60 years), but until Obama it seemed like they at least were willing to objectively question government actions somewhat (regardless of the party then in power). I guess they are giving up the pretense of objectivity.



But to their credit, they did cover the Lance Armstrong and Manti T'eo thing pretty well. So they have that going for them.

"....if I want really good cheese I'll go there."

There are some things in life where you need the assistance of someone who is totally flamingly gay. Cheese buying is one of those things.

Whole Foods (at least the one I shop at) keeps at least one of these fairies in the cheese and olive section at all times. They know every item, practically skip around to cut you a slice to taste and make excellent recommendations.

It's worth a trip to the store just to catch the show.

I go to the local Whole Foods just to feast my eyes on the bakery case. It's almost like being at a museum, the bakers are so creative. I've bought some goodies as hostess gifts, but so far have only sprung for the tiny little key lime tart for myself.

I like going there, but for me, it's a splurge.

Whole Foods CEO: ObamaCare Is "Fascism"

This Whole Foods guy is not what I expected the Whole Foods guy to be.

choing his statement yesterday that he regrets using the word “fascism,” Mackey explained, “That was a bad choice of words, but traditionally socialism means that the means of production are run by the government and in fascism the means of production are still owned by private individuals but they’re controlled by the government. And what’s happening. Our health care system is moving away from free enterprise capitalism towards greater governmental control. That was a poor choice of words due to the baggage and associations that go along with it. So now I’m just calling it ‘government-controlled health care.’”

An unsatisfied Costello then challenged Mackey, saying, “You realize when you say ‘fascism,’ it brings up Nazi Germany and all sorts of things. And we really want that kind language out of our public forum at the moment, don’t we?”

“Apparently you can’t use that word in America any longer, it’s taboo,” Mackey fired back.

I'm sure we all remember the media constantly objecting to "fascist" comparisons for George W. Bush.

"at the moment". hmmm...

It is interesting how we can no longer call what is "fascist", "fascist". That term became associated with Moussolini and, through him, with Hitler and Nazis. On its own, it's a legitimate political and economic philosophy. In fact, many people in this country, though they don't acknowledge it by that name, seem to subscribe to it.

"Legitimate" does not mean "right".

I think he means that it's a poor choice in that calling something "fascist" tends to invoke a knee-jerk reaction as opposed to an honest evaluation of what the word really means. So instead of honestly evaluating his statement, people decide that since they can't find any gun-toting secret police then his statement must not be true.

38 This guy has said stuff like this before.

He talked about revamping his company's health care to a voucher system that put the onus on employees to price shop and not abuse/waste their vouchers recklessly. You know, free market style. It was totally at odds with the entrenched liberal mindset about what employer healthcare should be, i.e. pay for all my shit at 100%. His system actually worked and saved him and his workers money and both sides were satisfied with how Mackey's plan worked.

He's still a libtard who voted for TFG. Only he's kind of like Steve Jobs, his real-world policies are at odds with what his politics are.

But because the majority of voters are idiots (and not morons, like you people here) and the media IS getting a first-hand view of what Obama ate, we're stuck. We can't use the actual words, can't tell the truth, because the media starts screaming "racism!" at the top of its collective lungs, and high-profile rumpswabs like Chrissy Matthews and Neblett start talking about code words and dog whistles.

48 Nazi Germany was fascist. It was not the ONLY fascist government to ever exist, and its fall did not mean the terminal end of fascism. If we're not allowed to suggest that something fascist is, in fact, fascist, just because by doing so we "conjure up images of Nazis," then in a few years we'll have to create another word for the exact same definition, which in another few decades we'll ALSO have to strike from the language.

"You do realize that when you use the term Obamunism it conjures up images of the Obama regime and the free shit army, right? And we really want that kind language out of our public forum at the moment, don’t we?"

I would agree, he is certainly a capitalist though, and he knows his customers. It was pretty damn brave of the guy to say anything against Obammy. But I think he is safe because they do not take EBT. That is the real reason liberals love to go there. They claim its organic and all that crap but they really hate the "little" people who are actually on govmint assistance.

--- I should say I do not think they take EBT, I know the fresh market near me does not take EBT. Someone in front of me in line flashed a food stamp card at the cashier, and he looked at the customer like they had just stepped in fresh shit. He then said "We have never taken that here".

61 he's right, it is fascism. It's just that the word fascism acquired a really bad meaning after the left stopped admiring it and starting using it to describe Reagan, Bush, and anyone else who disagrees with them.

"Roosevelt himself called Mussolini “admirable” and professed
that he was “deeply impressed by what he has accomplished.” The
admiration was mutual. In a laudatory review of Roosevelt’s 1933
book Looking Forward, Mussolini wrote, “Reminiscent of
Fascism is the principle that the state no longer leaves the
economy to its own devices.…Without question, the mood accompanying
this sea change resembles that of Fascism.” "

Actually, Ron Paul had it right when he called it "corporatism".

Fascism, the word, has it's root in fascis, or the symbolic bundling of grass or wheat after harvest. The idea is to bundle together the enterprises of the individual under the approval of the State, for greater social strength.

It works, until it doesn't work so well, when people revolt or disagree with what the State wants.

And this is what Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama Jones wanted all along, if you understand what the New Party in Chicago was, which he was a part of in the 1990's , and which the record ofhas been partially scrubbed from the public record.

Well, we do live now in a proto-facist state. That is the reality.

This is what Obama, Organizing for America, David Axelrod and a host of others wanted. The idea that we are a Constitutional Republic is quaint but not operational. It has been questionable for some years, but Obama has put an end to that.

There is no going back, either. There will be no re-birth of the Republic that we once might have known. The political class has gotten a taste of this and likes it, so there is no reprieve from a change of parties in power. We are going to have to live with this for some time, until the culture changes, until we have bloody revolution, or until the country splits apart (subset of the bloody revolution).
The idiots in the Massive Bullshit Media love it, until the government starts to turn on them, which it will in time. It will be a little fun to what those idiots squeal like the little piglets they are.

Remember, these are insufferable, self-important, selfish idiots who really aren't into any kind of self-sacrifice. Plus liberals always operate on the assumption that "someone else" will do it.

Actually, it's from the fasces, bundle of rods used as a 'holster' for axes in Roman times and a symbol of authority then, as shown in the logo for the Italian Fascist Party. Correct on the 'strength through unity' part though.

168 BackwardsBoy, my sit on your ass comment wasn't meant for you. You took a minute to give me some input. My sign wasn't finished yet and there were others around who I also admire and whose help I wished to enlist and get a consensus on whether it was "Horde worthy" and they just blew me off.

169 I went in my nearest Kroger a few days ago, buying stuff to send our boy. Picked up a couple of hunting magazines for him.

The check-out woman asked if I was into hunting, and I explained they were for my son. Told her he is into guns and is in the military.

Obamabot check-out woman: "Ain't it great that President Obama is getting us out of all the wars?"

I just looked at her, grabbed my bags, and walked out.

171 Doesn't this guy know that he's offending pussies, and only pussies shop at Whole Foods?

Not entirely true.

Only pussies regularly shop at Whole Foods. But their produce really is much better (and they do sell non-organic stuff) than most grocery stores around here.

I make my own salsa every now and again. If I want it to be really good, I go to WF for my jalepeno and habenero peppers. Also, if I want really good cheese I'll go there.

For anything else, though, I'll stick with Kroger, Aldi, or Walmart.

Again - the claim doesn't have to be completely true, only partially true. I'm just saying to acknowledge their persperctive. It's not correct, it's bogus - but it's not completely bogus. There is some merit to it. We live under rule of the connected.

It is in that context, in that reality, that they are able to so easily rationalize re-electing him. Elect a white politcian and he will steal for his white buddies, and be a hero for it. Elect a black politician and he steals for his black buddies, he might go to jail for it, sure he's breaking the law, but at least this thief steals for them.

Not go get off topic too much, but I am interested in what the big deal is with Breitbart. I've followed politics since 95 or so and Breitbart only came to may attention in the last 4 years or so and i wouldn't have considered him a top tier conservative thinker. i have nothing against him but he seems kind of overhyped and I don't think crashing the weiner presser did much for the conservative movement.

344 Fascism and its cousin corporatism rely on the idea that individuals don't matter except as they are organized into groups. Thus, every group's purpose is to support the state and rely upon the state to benevolently protect and succor them. Ironically, interest group liberalism/pluralism theory has a lot in common in that disorganized individuals don't really matter. Interest group liberalism posits that the state is neutral while interest groups duke it out in the arena for winning policy fights. In authoritarian fashion, the state is not neutral but instead harnesses the conflict between groups for the betterment of the state. In reality, we know from empirical experience that the state is not neutral and uses conflicts to advance its power (see rational choice theory).

How authoritarian the modern state chooses to be differs by whether the group and its goals are favored by the state or not. See the differing treatment of Occupy versus the bonus army by authorities or the differing treatment of Bill Ayers compared to Randy Weaver, David Gregory's treatment versus Adam Meckler etc.

Whole Foods here is for soccer moms who can afford the pricier food (close to upper class rates), and show up the moms who have to shop at grocery stores in the middle-class bracket or lower.

You are one of EPA's casualties of war and the left will not let you engage in your work competitively.

I am as angry as I am in my posts at times, precisely because of folks like you SC who are harmed by the Neo-Gaia cult.

382 Kinda of confusing how the Costco guy, a very capitalist business model, supported Obama and the Whole Foods guy, business model aimed at old hippies, is calling O a fascist. Strange times in which we live.

383 He's the hippy libertarian type. There are a lot of them in the Ron Paul community.

385 It is interesting how we can no longer call what is "fascist", "fascist". That term became associated with Moussolini and, through him, with Hitler and Nazis. On its own, it's a legitimate political and economic philosophy. In fact, many people in this country, though they don't acknowledge it by that name, seem to subscribe to it.


The same could be said of the outright socialism that cannot be called such (well, I mean the non-fascist socialisms).


I have made the argument about the racists, which is taking it to the extreme in our culture, as to why they should not be dehumanized and shunned and silenced with outrage at their racism. Is a crypto-racist really any better than a racist? Apart from making it easier to tolerate with denial?

Yup.


Plus the far communist left agrees with him anyway, they've been calling the USA fascist for 50 years. (Correctly. Their solution of communism is idiotic, but points for recognizing a fascist state). They complained right off the bat they want single payer, not fascism. It's stuff like this that lets them justify why Whole Foods isn't evil korpurasheun food.


And the L.I.V.s just blink and pretend like they understand.


And the pretentious rich limo-liberals can't find any place more pretentious and expensive to buy arugula.


This isn't unusual for Whole Foods and it won't have any effect on sales I doubt.
