Obama The Fascist: Let Me Keep Counting The Ways

January 11, 2012

Update: It’s not very surprising that the VERY NEXT DAY after I publish this we find out that Barack Obama  plans to create “an Internet ID for all Americans.”  FASCIST!!!

In April of 2o11 I wrote a VERY long (you know, because of all the facts and documentation I had) piece entitled, “Why I Call Obama A Fascist.”

My “favorite” Obama is a fascist article is an oldie but goodie available here.  As you read, it just keeps getting creepier and creepier the way Obama liberals have repeatedly targeted our children (like Freddie Krueger, but without the claws).  And if you don’t believe me, remember this little gem?

And who can forget that adorable little plastic-eyed little Hitler Youth girl:

There is something just …. seriously WRONG with Democrats since they found their messiah.  Like the Stepford wives after coming back from the clubhouse.  Only our Democrats were more than a little bit off even before Obama or they wouldn’t have voted for him in the first place.

Since that “Why I Call Obama A Fascist” article I’ve written lots of follow ups about this little fascist species of weasel, such as (from the oldest to the most recent):

You put it all together – or just be lazy and take each piece separately – and Barack Obama is a FASCIST.

Here’s the latest installation about Barack Obama, our beloved Führer.

I mean, let’s play a little game called “IMAGINE IF BUSH DID THIS“:

Homeland Security Given Green Light to Monitor American Journalists
Posted on January 9, 2012 at 11:44pm by Tiffany Gabbay

Under the National Operations Center (NOC)’s Media Monitoring Initiative that emerged from the Department of Homeland Security in November, Washington has written permission to collectand retain personal information from journalists, news anchors, reporters or anyone who uses “traditional and/or social media in real time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed.”

According to DHS, the definition of personal identifiable information can consist of any intellect “that permits the identity of an individual to be directly or indirectly inferred, including any information which is linked or linkable to that individual.”

RT adds:

Previously established guidelines within the administration say that data could only be collected under authorization set forth by written code, but the new provisions in the NOC’s write-up means that any reporter, whether someone along the lines of Walter Cronkite or a budding blogger, can be victimized by the agency.

Also included in the roster of those subjected to the spying are government officials, domestic or not, who make public statements, private sector employees that do the same and “persons known to have been involved in major crimes of Homeland Security interest,” which to itself opens up the possibilities even wider.

The department says that they will only scour publically-made info available while retaining data, but it doesn’t help but raise suspicion as to why the government is going out of their way to spend time, money and resources on watching over those that helped bring news to the masses.

According to RT, the website “Fast Company” reports that the NOC Monitoring Initiative has been in play since at least early-2010 and that the data is being shared with both private sector businesses and international third parties.

(h/t: RT)

Barack Obama has been an abject disaster for civil rights.  He is, according to the left, WORSE than the hated civil rights trampling George W. Bush ever was.  Even the Nation acknowledges this fact.  Even the Daily Kos acknowledges this fact.  Even the Socialist Worker acknowledges this fact.

And, yes, he’s targeting United States citizensObama can order you murdered now.

The Democrat Senate is going to vote on whether Obama can create a police state.  According to the obviously leftist ACLU:

The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world.

There are just a lot of things that “the ordinary homeowner” would say “can’t happen in the United States.”  Except they ARE happening.

Good thing Obama is watching those journalists.  Yes, they love their Führer now, but can he trust them?  It is better to keep them under surveillance to make certain of their continued loyalty, yes?

Democrats must suppress free speech and control the media narrative in order to advance their agenda.  That’s why they’ve been trying so long to do precisely that a la the Fairness Doctrine and other overtly fascist euphemisms.

History has a way of repeating itself:

…..Any opposition to Hitler is ruthlessly eradicated. Tens of thousands are imprisoned. Journalist Stephan Laurent dared to criticize The Fuehrer…..

I am writing this from cell 24. Outside a new Germany is being created. Many millions are rejoicing. Hitler is promising everyone precisely what they want. I think when they wake to their sobering senses, they will find they have been led by the nose and duped by lies.”

It’s bad, but in the age of Obama – just before the coming of Antichrist – it’s going to get a LOT worse.

Mainstream Media Tyranny-Helpers: Reuters, CNN Allow Themselves To Be Human Shields To Protect Libyan Command/Control Center

March 21, 2011

Here’s one: Gaddafi is a tyrant, and mainstream media “journalists” apparently don’t mind helping him stay in power as they pursue their own tyrannous agenda:

EXCLUSIVE: Libyans Use Journalists as Human Shields
By Jennifer Griffin & Justin Fishel
Published March 21, 2011
| FoxNews.com

 EXCLUSIVE:  An attack on the compound of Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi on Sunday had to be curtailed because of journalists nearby, Fox News has learned.

British sources confirmed that seven Storm Shadow missiles were ready to be fired from a British aircraft, but the strikes had to be curtailed due to crews from CNN, Reuters and other organizations nearby. Officials from Libya’s Ministry of Information brought those journalists to the area to show them damage from the initial attack and to effectively use them as human shields.

The curtailment of this mission led to a great deal of consternation by coalition commanders, sources told Fox News, but they opted to call off the mission to avoid civilian casualties.

During a Pentagon briefing on Monday, coalition commanders said the huge compound was targeted due to its air defense systems on the perimeter and a military command and control center. It was not targeted to kill Qaddafi, commanders said.

Meanwhile, U.S. military officials said on Monday that Qatar is sending six planes to Libya to participate in support missions, becoming the third Arab nation to send aircraft to the African nation. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) also announced on Monday that its role in Libya is “strictly confined” to the delivery of humanitarian assistance in Libya.

In coordination with Turkey, the United Arab Emirates has sent a ship loaded with medical and humanitarian aid to Libya — in addition to two UAE planes sent to the country last week.

The U.N.-approved no-fly zone over Libya is working and will soon be expanded to Tripoli as aircraft from additional coalition countries arrive in the region, the head of U.S. Africa Command said on Monday.

U.S. Army General Carter Ham told a Pentagon briefing that coalition air forces were continuing missions to sustain the no-fly zone and that Libyan ground forces were moving south from rebel-held Benghazi showing “little will or capability” to operate.

Ham said U.S. and U.K. forces launched another 12 Tomahawk cruise missiles over the past 24 hours at sites controlled by Qaddafi. The targets included regime command and control facilities, a surface-to-surface missile site and an air defense station, according to Ham, the operation commander who added that there was no direct coordination among allies and anti-Qaddafi rebels.

Once again, Fox News demonstrated it’s “right wing bias” by refusing to send a reporter to a location at the invititation of Libyan officals.  The senior Fox News reporter on the ground (Rick Leventhal) suspected the Libyans were trying to use him for propaganda, if not as a human shield.  This behavior by Fox News is quite unfortunate.  They really need to listen to icon of progressive journalism Walter Lippman (according to liberal intellectual Noam Chomsky):

The intelligent [elite liberal] minorities have long understood this to be their function. Walter Lippmann described a “revolution” in “the practice of democracy” as “the manufacture of consent” has become “a self-conscious art and a regular organ of popular government.” This is a natural development when public opinion cannot be trusted: “In the absence of institutions and education by which the environment is so successfully reported that the realities of public life stand out very sharply against self-centered opinion, the common interests very largely elude public opinion entirely, and can be managed only by a specialized class whose personal interests reach beyond the locality,” and are thus able to perceive “the realities.” These are the men of best quality, who alone are capable of social and economic management.

As journalist great Walter Lippmann saw it:

Adherents of democracy, he wrote back in 1925, “encourage the people to attempt the impossible”—that is, to exercise sovereignty, and this can only result in their “interfering outrageously with the productive activities of the individual.” This must at all costs be avoided “so that each of us may live free of the trampling and the roar of a bewildered herd.” Even earlier, in his Public Opinion, Lippmann seized on the behaviorism of J. B. Watson (his book, Psychology from the Standpoint of a Behaviorist appeared in 1919) to bulwark his attack on democracy. For the mechanical behaviorist view of thinking as pure stimulus and response of the human brain as a mere switchboard—was the source for Lippmann’s invention of the concept of mental “stereotypes.” With this, Lippmann reduced the “reality” of democracy to the manipulation of the “herd’s” mind by the propagandistic conditioning conducted by the elite. Similarly, psychoanalysis and pragmatism appealed to Lippmann—as did eugenics for a time—as scientific demonstrations of the irrational and amoral nature of man, as clinchers that the masses, in Mencken’s phrase, were the “booboisie.”

Then, of course, there are the great words of another fellow who has profoundly shaped American progressive journalism, Edward Bernays:

In describing the origin of the term Public Relations, Bernays commented, “When I came back to the United States [from the war], I decided that if you could use propaganda for war, you could certainly use it for peace. And propaganda got to be a bad word because of the Germans … using it. So what I did was to try to find some other words, so we found the words Counsel on Public Relations”.

And Fox News, of course, just isn’t living up to this tradition of wise and benevolent propaganda at all.  Unlike the heroic journalists who placed themselves in harms way to get the story and to prevent the hated West (because until they are fully socialized they remain the greatest enemy) from undermining the wise and benevolent leadership of Jeremiah Wright’s and Louis Farrakhan’s esteemed friend Muammar Gaddafi.

Jeremiah Wright was Barack Obama’s pastor and spiritual mentor for about 23 years, so he’s clearly a profoundly spiritual and wise man.  And Louis Farrakhan is black, and therefore the virtuous victim of white bigotry.

But Wright’s relationship with the controversial Farrakhan extended far beyond an award.  In 1984, Wright personally accompanied Farrakhan to Libya to meet with Muammar Gaddafi in Tripoli. In 2008, Wright even predicted his association with Farrakhan and Gaddafi may cause political headaches for Obama’s presidential aspirations: “When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli to visit [Gadhafi] with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell,” he said.

And, of course, it almost certainly would have.  Except the “intelligent minorities” understood that revealing the truth would have outraged the ignorant “bewilderned herd.”  Fortunatey, the tremendous journalists from Reuters and CNN were on hand to prevent that from happening.

Just as they were fortunately on hand to prevent the evil American and British pilots from taking out Gaddafi’s primary command and control facility.

Of course, if you are a true believer in mainstream media journalism, you are an atheist.  But even though you obviously can’t thank God for the presence of the media, you should thank somebody (Big Brother Obama, perhaps?) that mainstream media outlets like CNN and Reuters were on the scene to keep manipulating the bewildered herd’s mind through the construction of propagandistic condition.

Media WILL NOT Be Fair To Sarah Palin

September 25, 2008

Were reporters “banned” from Sarah Palin’s meeting with foreign leaders?  Does this show that Sarah Palin is not ready to stand on her own, and that the McCain campaign is either fearful or has something to hide?  Can Sarah Palin not handle the media?  How about “not.”

Fox News put this “story” into perspective:

The Associated Press and other media outlets reacted with alarm when the McCain camp kept reporters from attending a photo opportunity with Sarah Palin and foreign leaders at the U.N. on Tuesday. AP reporter Sara Kugler wrote that reporters were banned “so as not to risk a question being asked of Palin.”

The McCain camp later relented, but there was no concern by the AP in July when Barack Obama conducted similar closed-door meetings with European leaders.

And by the way, the Center for Responsive Politics reports Kugler donated to the liberal 527 group America Coming Together (ACT) during the 2004 campaign. Kugler gave $342 to the now-defunct voter registration group. ACT closed up shop after being fined $775,000 by the Federal Elections Commission in 2007 for violations of federal campaign finance laws.

So what do we learn?  We learn that the Associated Press reporter who used the loaded term “banned” has a history of supporting the left.  We learn that the McCain-Palin campaign was only asking for similar courtesy from the media that Barack Obama asked for – and received without questions about his competence.  And we learned that the media has no intention of being fair or objective.

I’ve said this before: if the media were just fair, and reported objectively and accurately without constant “editorializing,” I believe the Democratic Party would go the way of the Dodo bird.

Obama Wishes U.S. Could Be Like China

August 22, 2008

Hot Air jumped all over this stunningly revealing statement from Barack Obama. I figured I might as well pile on:

Everybody’s watching what’s going on in Beijing right now with the Olympics. Think about the amount of money that China has spent on infrastructure. Their ports, their train systems, their airports are vastly the superior to us now, which means if you are a corporation deciding where to do business you’re starting to think, “Beijing looks like a pretty good option.”

Ed Morrissey had this to say by way of comment:

Well, as long as you forget about the oppressive Communist government and the lack of freedom and the Internet filtering and the re-education camps … China sounds really groovy.

Does Barack Obama understand the nature of the Beijing regime? The reason that the government can afford all of this spending is that they control the means of production and the wealth of the nation. They can confiscate what they want at will and spend it where they like. And in Beijing, they spent it where the cameras would be pointed.

Unfortunately, most of what the cameras see is just a facade, as Dale Franks points out at Q&O:The Chinese infrastructure that so enthralls Obama remains decades behind that of the US.  What infrastructure China manages to build, however, gets its energy from oil and coal, not from wind and solar.  China has become the highest emissions nation in the world and shows no sign of slowing itself down over concerns about anthropogenic climate change.  In fact, the air in Beijing is so bad that outdoor Olympics events almost had to be moved.

Meanwhile, the regime where Obama thinks the world would love to do business maintains itself through brutal oppression.  China blocked access to the Internet for international journalists despite promising to allow full access to reporters for the Games.  They arrested reporters covering peaceful protests.  And these are the actions they took while trying to make themselves look good.

If Obama wants us to build up American infrastructure, he can start by ending the flow of American wealth overseas for energy.  Create hundreds of thousands of jobs by building the American energy infrastructure through drilling in the OCS, ANWR, and interior shale formations.  Lower capital-gains tax rates to encourage more investment and generate more revenues (and jobs).

America needs a President who can see past the facades.  Obama has given every indication of gullibility, first with his pledge to conduct presidential-level diplomacy without preconditions with regimes like Iran, Cuba, and North Korea, and now in declaring China the place to do business.  Obama isn’t at all ready to lead this nation; he’s not even ready to run a business, with thinking like this.

Barack Obama’s statement on China betrays a fundamentally stupid as well as fundamentally amoral understanding of both the economy and the world.
