Due to the anti intellectual nature of American discourse it is hard to know exactly what people mean when they claim something is fascist or Socialist, almost like the terms are inter change able, which if you look at the dictionary even with a skim you see how wrong that is , people might as well be grunting and throwing their poo, that makes about as much sense

Round 1
Pro
people feel that they can define a word any way they want a term has certain specific qualities, this is indicative of how anti intellectual Americans have become
Con
In order to understand what is going we must first start from the start.

Language is used to communicate with one another. In order to have the best use of language it would be optimal for people around you to speak the same language so that you are hearing and stating the same language. This is due to different languages having different societal norms attached to it. A joke in one language would be really offensive in another.

Now speaking about the two words directly:

Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterized by social ownership of the means of production and workers' self-management, as well as the political theories and movements associated with them. Social ownership can be publiccollective or cooperative ownership, or citizen ownership of equity.

Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of far right-wingauthoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy[3] which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

So if it wasn't clear if people follow these two different they are referring to two different things.

people feel that they can define a word any way they want a term has certain specific qualities, this is indicative of how anti intellectual Americans have become
For this to be fulfilled my opponent requires to show some sort of data that anti-intellectual Americans state this. I await for them to do so. I above have shown they are two different things so it is on my opponent to state otherwise.

This isn't your argument. You are using someone else's. Please next round give your argument or have the consent of the people making the video.

1st Source is Simpsons. It is an exaggeration and a cartoon.
(Side Note: Fun Show)

2nd Source is a book. You didn't link a book you linked a video talking about a book. No evidence was given in the video nor in the comments. 
(Side Note: Pakman is better but Destiny is the best. If you can't take Destiny beating Michael Brooks in a debate then your loss)
Round 3
Pro
Okay my argument is there have been books by experts written about how unbleivably stupid americans are and if you want from of that? i've posted the proof already, so there
Con
You posted a video of a person talking for a radio. 
Another is Simpsons.

Your burden was not fulfilled and I have fulfilled mine.
