Obama's New Gestapo-like Website "AttackWatch.com" (Updated With Video)
Sept. 13, 2011 - Barack Obama is at it again: He wants you to snitch on anyone who is critical of him. (See video below.) In Obamaland, thinking and speaking freely is considered to be an offense. "AttackWatch.com" is a subpage of my.barackobama.com, which is produced by Obama For America. There, Americans are asked to report "smears" against Obama. In other words, to report people for exercising their right to free speech, free thought and, yes, the right to utter incorrect statements about politicians. We've seen this before from the White House. In 2009, Obama's propagandists asked Americans to narc on anybody who criticized Obama's proposed health care legislation: "If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org." The Gestapo would admire Obama's clever use of the Internet, which can be much more efficient than knocking on doors at three in the morning. But, again, to keep my liberal friends from wetting their pants, I repeat that Obama is no Hitler. Actually, Obama is more like Benito Mussolini in the early days of his rule of Italy. Remember Linda Douglas, sitting at her White House computer, complaining that "facts are stubborn things?" At that time, an uproar of indignation went up across America. Typical of that reaction was this from The Freedom Medium: "And now this administration wants you to drop a dime on anyone who says something against their agenda? What's next, swastikas?" That was August, 2009. Two years later, we're seeing it again. No swastikas, of course, but the same Third Reich stench of thought and speech intimidation. Back in early 2008, when unaccomplished Illinois State Senator Barack Obama was still running for President, some people called him a fascist. Some still do, of course, and they are laughed at an mocked just as they were in 2008. Perhaps, however, they are mocked a bit less in late 2011, however, for we have seen for ourselves that Obama has indeed displayed some fascist behavior. Keep in mind that "fascist" does not necessarily mean "Nazi," and I am in no way saying that Obama is a genocidal lunatic a la Hitler. Jonah Goldberg's book "Liberal Fascism" showed us how modern U.S. "progressives" are the true heirs to the European fascists. Goldberg himself said, "I reject entirely the idea that liberals today are literally Nazi-like, particularly if we are going to define Nazism by what 'they were known for.' Liberals don’t want to invade Poland or round up Jews." No, but I know plenty of them who would round up "the bankers" and "the rich." A scapegoat by any other name is still a scapegoat. Obama seems to like some modern Gestapo-lite tactics, however. To wit, that new website of his. It asks people to "Get the facts. Fight the smears." How can people "fight the smears?" Simple: Snitch on friends, coworkers, neighbors, and anybody else who you repeats a rumor or forwards an email that is critical of Obama. Is it just coincidence that the color scheme of "AttackWatch.com" is black, red and white -- the colors of the Nazi flag? Let's hope so, but I have a dark feeling that there was something Freudian going on in the head of the page's designer. Don't forget to report this post to AttackWatch.com.
