To the liberal elitist, it is slanderous to call anyone, influential in society, a Marxist
As the elite left now works on rehabbing the reputations of Barack Obama's old comrades, Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright (of the many, two whose names got past media filters) my prayers and empathy go out for Rep. Paul Broun, of Georgia -- and my congratulations to him. As you may know, Broun has publicly expressed his concerns over the apparent Marxist history and intentions of the apparent president-elect (11/7, 11/11).
From "Broun's back on Obama; Stands by remarks," by Blake Aued, 11/11, Athens Banner-Herald:
"Broun's neo-McCarthyism has no place in today's political environment," said Martin Matheny, a spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia.Question: is it "neo-McCarthyism" to refer to the actual, documented facts of someone's close, lifetime relationships with neo-Marxists? Well, those, plus an old fashioned Communist, in Frank Marshall Davis, Obama's mentor as a teen. (Nice that Davis went by three names; that way I can link to three sets of documentation.) The Banner-Herald piece goes on:
Comparisons to Hitler are despicable because they trivialize the Holocaust, whether they come from the left about President Bush or from the right about Obama, said Athens-Clarke Mayor Heidi Davison, a Jewish Democrat. "I don't like people who flippantly use either 'Hitler' or 'Nazi' to describe the actions of other people, at all, ever," Davison said.Comments such as this minimize the American holocaust of well over 42,000,000 human beings killed via abortion, since 1973. They also ignore Barack Obama's record of supporting rampant abortion-through-infanticide and his atrocious promise to anti-black, eugenicist Planned Parenthood, to nullify all state and federal restrictions upon abortion through the "Freedom of Choice Act" he has already sponsored.
This light but refreshing dose of post-election journalism goes on:
Broun said in the news release he hopes Obama will be a bipartisan executive and is "eager to work with our president-elect when he is constitutionally correct."May many others in government also maintain an informed and concerned perspective. May more and more of the People learn the facts, as well.
Broun's comments reflect the fears of many Republicans who believe Obama has a shadowy background that wasn't fully explored by the press, said Jim Box, chairman of the Clarke County GOP.
"The question is, where's this guy going?" Box said. "A lot of people are raising suspicions about him."
Broun made headlines nationwide Monday when - based on a Colorado speech when Obama called for a "civilian national security force" - he raised the possibility that Obama plans to establish a Nazi- or Soviet-style security force to impose a Marxist dictatorship.
"That's exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany, and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did," Broun told the Associated Press on Monday. "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 referred to the civilian national security force as part of a call for expanding the Peace Corps and other volunteer programs and encouraging young people to commit to public service overseas and in poor parts of the country, according to a July 2 Chicago Tribune article about the speech.
Media outlets sensationalized Broun's comments about the Obama speech, he said, but he reiterated his concerns about Obama's tax and gun policies.
"I never called Mr. Obama a communist, nor did I accuse him of being Hitler, but I do not apologize for stating the obvious: His socialist views are out of the mainstream of American political thought, and history shows that 'civilian national security forces' bode ill for citizens," Broun said.
