Congressman Broun of Georgia is warning of an Obama dictatorship:
Broun cited a July speech by Obama that has circulated on the Internet in which the then-Democratic presidential candidate called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.
“That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did,” Broun said. “When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.”
Obama needs to invoke Godwin here and declare victory.Â I’m not exactly in favor of Obama’s plan for national indentured servitude of young people, but can we dispense with the fear mongering and start worrying about why large numbers of Republican voters stayed home this election?Â Â Can we start worrying about why young people are increasingly lost to Republican candidates?Â Â Obama won.Â Get over it.Â He’s not going to be the moderate centrist people are hoping for, but he’s also not going to be Hitler or Joe Stalin either.Â I can promise you I won’t like what’s coming, but right now we have to worry about being strong opposition, not floating paranoid theories about brownshirts.Â I expect to find that kind of crap coming from obscure web sites and blogs (you know, like this one), not from the mouth of a United States Congressman.
