Obama's Department of Big Lies (DHS)

Here is yet another example of the similarities of the Obama Administration's tactics to those of Hilter's Third Reich. Back in April, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a report with the provocative title "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic And Political Climate Fueling Resurgence In Radicalization And Recruitment." It scared some gullible Americans, and pissed off many more who could it for the Big Lie that it is. Now, we learn just how big a lie that the report really is, thanks to a report by Americans for Limited Government (ALG). reports today (Aug. 12, 2009) that ALG filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to find out just how DHS put that report together, "and how DHS arrived at such a chilling conclusion." According to GetLiberty, "The response from DHS is stunning." Additionally, "the Obama Administration deliberately – and deceptively -- used a frighteningly kooky website to condemn tens of millions of innocent Americans who have fought for their country, cherish the sanctity of life, or stand up for the 10th Amendment." The DHS report was put together by simply cruising the Internet and citing examples of the most extreme web sites. No field research was conducted and none of the cited extremists were interviewed or examined first-hand by any DHS personnel. In other words, the report was based on a relative handful of bizarre web sites and a lot of assumption on the part of DHS and the Obama Administration in a desperate attempt to discredit conservatives in general. Today we hear echoes of this mind set when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and other Democrats accuse conservatives and libertarians of acting like Nazis for asking loud and forceful questions at townhall meetings. GetLiberty wraps up their article with this: "The ALG FOIA response reveals that his Department of Homeland Security violated the trust of the American people in ways never even imagined possible by those whose liberty it has placed in jeopardy. And the President now needs to come clean and tell the American people when he learned about this horrifying attack on personal freedom and why he did not intervene to end the assault." We would add this: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it," said Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. "The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Are YOU a citizen of the United STRAIGHTS of America?
