Obama Gets Scarier
Barack Hussein Obama seems to be an empty skin, chosen by the liberal elite because he's mulatto, has a name that reminds them of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, has the most liberal voting record in the Senate, and seems like the sort of amiable moron who would be easy to control. But what if there's actually something behind his ostensibly meaningless rhetoric about "change"?
Thanks to the full-throttled support of the leftist media, few even know about his recent call for a vast "civilian national security force," to be as powerful as all our Armed Forces combined, apparently some nightmarish cross between Hitler Youth and the Gestapo. In the context of discussing his plans to impose involuntary servitude on the same young people who provide so much of his support, he intoned:
We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.
They won't have to knock quietly at your door if someone turns you in for being a racist or homophobe or global warming denier. They'll have the manpower to raze your whole town. You don't mess with a "civilian national security force" with an annual budget of around $439 billion.
Blue Collar Muse raises just a few of the concerns that this would evoke in any sort of responsible media:
The questions are legion and the implications of such an organization are staggering! What would it do? According to the title, it's a civilian force so how would it go about discharging "national security" issues? What are the Constitutional implications for such a group? How is this to be paid for? Is this accounted for in some of Obama's currently proposed tax increases or will we need more taxes to fund this enterprise? The statement was made in the context of youth service. Is this an organization for just the youth or are adults going to participate? How does one get away from the specter of other such "youth" organizations from Nazi Germany and the former Soviet Union when talking about it?
Bellows Obama, the expert on patriotism:
Loving your country shouldn't just mean watching fireworks on the 4th of July. Loving your country must mean accepting your responsibility to do your part to change it.
Obama appears to be a blathering idiot, as unaware of the meaning of his words as a talking bird. But we still need to ask ourselves: Change it into what?

Yep, take away our rights to gun ownership and then send in the Storm Troopers.

I wonder what dept. they'll come under? Homeland Security or BHO's new Dept. of fair and equitable income distribution? Will the jews be the first to be targeted?

Einsatzgruppen. They do the stuff the old fashioned police and military won't do. You know, enforce "change".

I'm sure he loves his country. I'm just trying to figure which country that is.

We already have the FBI, CIA, National Guard, military reserves, BATFE, not to mention police at the state, county, and local levels. So why would we need another "law enforcement" group as big as the military, when the headcount of all of the above (excluding the military reserves) already exceeds that of the military, and a civillian group at that? And that in itself is interesting - does he want it to be a civilian group because he thinks that since it is not a government group, the Constitution does not apply to them, just as bounty hunters can do some things that the police would need a warrant for? This is just plain scary, from how we would pay for it (soak the rich, probably) right down to why we would even have it.
The Soviet Union. East Germany. Romania. North Korea. Fascist Italy. Nazi Germany. Venezuela. Cuba. China. We've seen all of this before, with the "youth groups" and the "national police force" and the terrible atrocities that were committed under just such systems. I understand that the media is completely in BHO's camp, but shouldn't this scare even them?
Hitler was elected to his office. So was Hugo Chavez. Instead of just being worried that a bunch of leftists are about to elect an empty suit, I now begin to worry that the suit is not only not empty, but filled with a wanna-be Napoleon in JFK clothing.

Why is this a surprise? The man is a marxist if you have been paying any attention at all you should have known this at least a year ago.

Actually, Van, rather than the GeheimStaatsPolizei (Gestapo) or the Hitler Youth (National Socialism's answer to the Boy Scouts), this bunch that Doh!bama is proposing sounds most like the old Brownshirts, or SA, Ernst Rohm's thugs who enforced the Nazis' policies by brute force (not just "Do as I say, not as I do," but "Do as I say or I will literally kick your ass").
Yes, the next four years under Doh!bama (if this Marxist piece of garbage actually wins; I'm looking forward to lots of reports of Dhimmicrat stuffing of ballot boxes, to include all the felons, illegal aliens, various other criminals and dead people they can register and get to vote, multiples of times) promise to be dark indeed (no pun intended). A new SA, maybe the "Green" SA? Entirely possible; entirely probable, in fact . . .

Many people on the Left's hate for the military has morphed to fear as the armed forces have become more Christian, more conservative, and more "Republican" than the general population. The Clintons did their best to feminize and corrode military culture, but Obama apparently has bigger plans. I think Barrack wants his own parallel organization that can be run by people from his side of the culture. It would be a way of weakening the military by diverting/diluting funding to an organization dedicated to the Democratic Party (kind of like NPR, except with guns),

Someone should call Obama Headquarters and let them know that their 10,000 brown shirts have been laundered and are ready to be picked up! I can't believe all his minions are still foaming at the mouth in anticipation of seeing this dirtbag elected!

"Loving your country must mean accepting your responsibility to do your part to change it."
Of course- the sure sign of somebody loving their country is that they want to change it. Why haven't I realized this?!?!??

On the question of how the civilian force will be paid for, that's easy. He plans to disband the military and use the funds from that. After all, international security matters can be handled by diplomacy. All we have to do is talk nice to the evil people of the world, and we will be safe.
This guy is either seriously deranged, actively trying to overthrow the republic, or the dumbest f*ck to ever run for president.

When he says,” We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” I don’t think he intends to match the current military budget. It is far more likely he will cut the military budget in half and spend the other half on this “civilian force”. I can’t think of an easier way to cripple the greatest fighting force in the world.Is this the change we can believe in?

Seeing as his retoric has taken on the ton of El Duce. I have decided to call him Obamalinni.

I think Obama has the "Nation of Islam" in mind.
The man is a puppet for ACORN, the unions and George Soros.

civilian national security force? Ironically we already have something like that, they're called the Minutemen, they are attempting to protect us from colonization from the south and Obama can't stand them.

"All we have to do is talk nice to the evil people of the world, and we will be safe." Nah, you just keep promoting unlawful regime changes and placing puppet figures that are pro-imperialistic, then it will all be good...see, no change needed. You know your ways already blew in your face, so just keep up the denial.
