Some bloggers, such as Juan Cole, and Media Matters and news media elites have been making fun of or criticizing Glenn Beck for Beck’s implying that Obama might be planning to assassinate Tea Partiers, or others being falsely labeled as “militants,” “extremists,” etc. by the Obama Administration, and described by the DC rulers as “threat” or as “terrorists.” Well, a lot of people either don’t know their history, just from this past century, the history of any regime anywhere in the world that has been a communist or otherwise all-powerful State regime, or they just don’t care. I have written about why the Tea Partiers should be concerned here. And yes, we do have reason to be concerned.
Here are the facts:
- Obama has given himself extended executive powers, including the power to apprehend and detain indefinitely and assassinate anyone anywhere in the world, including Americans, that Obama and his CIA and other U.S. agents have determined are “terrorists,” or otherwise a threat, without due process, without trial, and even without any formal actual suspicion of a specific individual. The Bush Administration knowingly swept up masses of innocent individuals randomly and without suspicion and held them including torturing them at Gitmo and other areas. As long as agents of the mighty U.S. State have accused someone of something, that’s good enough.
- Obama has taken over whole industries, including much of the U.S. automobile industry, the health care industry, and now the financial industry. He’s a socialist, a fascist, and a communist.
- The Obama Administration consists of like-minded individuals such as Elena Kagan, Cass Sunstein and Eric Holster, all of whom approve of Obama’s extended, strengthened dictatorial executive powers, including silencing talk radio, shutting down the Internet and especially censoring bloggers and other sources who are critical of the little Marxist dictator in the White House.
All you have to do is study the history of just the last century, and how the leaders of the major regimes –democratic or communist (same thing) — such as Stalin, Hitler, Castro, Mao, FDR, etc. treated people in their own countries, and just look at Obama’s past relationships with people such as Bill Ayers and Obama’s following of the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals and you would understand what I’m talking about.
Unless, of course, you agree with Obama, and agree that the centralized State in DC should be as strong and powerful as possible and that the people should be serfs for the State, and people who question the authority of the State and criticize it should be “taken care of.”
