Conservapedia: Soccer is Socialism: "The nature and rules of soccer very much resemble socialism in many ways," claims the group-edited right-wing website Conservapedia. "The 'no hands' rule can be compared to socialist tax policies. ... The game forbids frequent stops, which can be compared to 'carbon footprint' efforts to fight supposed global warming. ... The US is often treated unfairly by other nations in the game, one reason being soccer's lack of popularity in the US -- socialism always claimed to favor the absolute will of the majority rather than personal and economic freedom of the individual."
