Thread Name: BS: Obama's Brownshirts?
Subject: RE: BS: Obama's Brownshirts?
I made the mistake of watching Glenn Beck today. There he is, standing at his blackboard, playing college professor, cherry picking his facts. He speaks about the persecution of Germans in this country during WWI, which certainly happens, without mentioning the British propaganda about German atrocities in Belgium and France that fueled that persecution.
Nor does he mention the Red Scare that followed, when the rights of citizens suspected of being Communists were cheerfully ignored.
Then he points to the Obama blackboard, and something they have done and explains why it's like when the government interned Japanese during WWII, or when the Red Cross (Which is not a government agency.) banned German Americans from going to the front in W.W.I, when there is NOTHING like that going on in the Obama administration.
Even worse, Mike Huckabee went to Las Vegas, to tell everyone how terrible it was that President Obama said bankers and brokers wouldn't be allowed to go to Vegas at the public expense. If I ever meet Governor Huckabee, I swear I'll kick him right in the pants!
