Is America Now A Fascist State?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
When the news broke that movie maker Dinesh D’Souza’s had been indicted by Obama’s so-called Justice Department, I had cold chills run up and down my spine. I thought: “Well, it has finally happened. The US is now a fascist state.”
How long are Americans going to allow their freedom and liberty to be crushed under the jackboots of the Obama Administration? How long? Huh?
So you think Fascist is too harsh a term, do you? Well, let’s take a closer look.
OK — so what is a fascist? According to The Urban Dictionary a fascist is “someone who believes in a totalitarian state rule by a supreme leader (dictator) who controls everything possible and treats people harshly — to gain the leader’s own success….”
Sound familiar? In a piece by John Griffing, published at American Thinker, Mr. Griffing says the following: “At its core, fascism is really just a system where government, through agreements with the private sector, controls virtually all property and income indirectly and Obama has embraced this template.”
Mr. Griffing goes on to say: “Fascism is correctly associated with tyranny since nations that employ the tenets of fascism almost always transition from a republican or parliamentary form of government to some sort of personality cult usually centered on an economic “savior.” Fascism requires extensive state control, and if this control is not centralized in a singular personality, the results will be muddied and plagued with excessive overlap. All of Obama’s actions have highly fascist overtones.” Read the entire article here: http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/07/american_jeopardy_what_is_fasc.html
It is gratifying, to say the least, to find someone who agrees with our viewpoint of Obama and his regime. It is truly frightening to see America being fundamentally changed from a constitutional republic into a fascist dictatorship under Obama. But, that is what we have in America today.
What? You say it can’t happen in America? Well, I hate to disagree with your assessment, but dear reader, it already has happened. The task of freedom loving Americans now — IS TO CHANGE IT BACK! That goal is becoming ever more difficult, with every passing day, as the line between the private sector and the public sector is being systematically and intentionally blurred by the Obama Regime. You may not wish to admit it, even to yourself, but, as Mr. Griffing says in his article at American Thinker, “individual liberty can often be conditioned on complicity with state aims, as manifested in the private sector sphere.” He is spot on!
Look, we Americans are being “conditioned” by the Obama Regime to jump through any hoop Obama should hold up in front of us.
Many weeks ago we warned of an avalanche of taxes on the horizon for America. That avalanche is about to come rumbling down to crush the last remnant of resistance to the Obama fascist agenda. There are twenty-plus NEW TAXES about to be levied on Americans — all associated, in some way, to Obamacare. And it will get worse… count on it!
Obama and the democrats have bankrupted America. We are broke. There is no more money available within the government budget to stave of the insolvency of America.
So what must happen? Huge tax increases. As Charles Krauthammer has warned us: “There just isn’t enough to cut elsewhere to prevent national insolvency. That will require massive tax increases, most likely a European-style value-added tax.” Read the entire article here (SOURCE) http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/15/AR2010071504593.html?
Americans who have already been mentally “conditioned” will simply lie down and allow the Obama taxes, such as a VAT tax, to wash over them. Those of us who are not “conditioned” will fight it every step of the way. Even the Vat tax is the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. It cannot cover the shortfall of funds America faces in the future.
Only a strong fascist leader could “condition” Americans to accept what is coming next — the looting of the individual American. Obama is setting the stage with his campaign on income inequality. What he’s talking about, dear reader, is socialism, plain and simple.
In an article at the American thinker written by Kyle Anne Shiver and entitled: “Barack Obama, the Quintessential liberal fascist” Shiver says: “Neither did Barack Obama invent the political “ideology of change,” nor design its carefully crafted propaganda. While media folks talked of the tingles up their legs and the brilliant rhetoric of Barack Obama, they were heralding the speaker only, not the creator of the movement and its slogans. That would have been Saul Alinsky, the man who took fascism and cunningly made it appear to casual observers every bit as American as apple pie.
Barack Obama is merely the movement’s closer, the quintessential liberal fascist with a teleprompter.” Read the entire article here: http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/05/barack_obama_the_quintessentia_1.html
As much as I dislike admitting it, we HAVE become conditioned “not to see the forest for the trees.” We inhabit Obama’s fascist America, yet we don’t seem able to see it for what it is.
Today we Americans seem to lack what the military refers to as “situational awareness.” Just as on the battlefield where lack of situational awareness can easily lead to the demise of the individual, it can also lead the people of a country into placidly standing by as their nation is hi-jacked and “fundamentally changed,” from a nation where the government serves the people — to a nation where the people serve the government.
That has already happened. The question now is — can we change it back to its rightful condition. We have a chance this coming November to say to the would-be Leftist dictators of the world, including those-who-would-be-king right here in America …NO! We will now allow you to steal our liberty, our freedom, our COUNTRY from us. We cannot allow the chance to save America pass us by. It MAY be our last chance.
Are WE to be the generation that lost America? Think about that. We have just over ten months to save America. The Right side of the political spectrum must come together as a unified force to defeat the denizens of the Left. We must cleanse our garden of the evil Leviathan.
