I know people who have escaped from totalitarian countries, coming to America seeking the freedom which we have taken so much for granted. In point of fact, we’ve all but squandered the greatest gift the Almighty ever granted any people. What remains to be seen is whether we have the sand to do the job. We’ve made a bare start with the Republican sweep of the Congress.
So far, it’s been a mixed bag, with Republicans deal-making to get a two year extension on the reduction of the Clinton tax increases… How easily we forget. We watched as our new speaker-in-waiting, who has been making very conservative noises all this time, jump out and announce his intention to appoint two highly dubious re-treads to key committee chairmanships. If that wasn’t enough to rattle your cage a little, he then appears on a nationally syndicated Marxist-controlled television interview program, where he blubbers like a baby. No wonder our political enemies have a tough time taking us seriously.
Looking around the country, we’d better be getting damned serious about stopping this Marxist agenda dead in its tracks. To see a mirror on today, one only need call upon the past. There are some disturbing parallels between the America of today and the rise of the National Socialists in pre World War Two Germany. The demonization of certain selected groups, the centralization and subordination of industry and commerce by the government, the organization and maintenance of a private army (the Brownshirts), later replaced by the SS and the Gestapo.
In the beginning, all they did was march and act like street thugs… reminiscent of Barry Hussein’s SEIU street thugs. It didn’t end there. We know where it ended. Names like Bergen-Belsen, Belzec, Auschwitz-Birkenau are seared across the face of history for any who seek to find.
Janet Napolitano and her ‘Homeland Security’ are behaving an awful lot like a national police force. Now, instead of groping nuns and little girls, they have taken to silencing their critics by staging raids on American citizens who have the nerve to speak out against what they see as a supposed security system wildly out of control and observably extra-constitutional.
It is a truism that absolute power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It would take very little for this out-of-control, authoritarian agency to morph into Obama’s police state. It would be unfortunate indeed.
This nation is not Europe. We’re not used to kowtowing to elites here. It doesn’t sit well with us as citizens, as Americans.
We will fight you and defeat you, there will be nowhere to hide… America is on the march.
