    Default GOP congressman warns of Barack Obama dictatorship; alludes to Hitler

    WASHINGTON -- A Republican congressman from Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist or fascist dictatorship.

    "It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force," Rep. Paul Broun said of Obama in an interview Monday with The Associated Press. "I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may -- may not, I hope not -- but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism."

    Broun cited a July speech by Obama that has circulated on the Internet in which the then-Democratic presidential candidate called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.

    "That's exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did," Broun said. "When he's proposing to have a national security force that's answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he's showing me signs of being Marxist."

    Obama's comments about a national security force came during a speech in Colorado about building a new civil service corps. Among other things, he called for expanding the nation's foreign service and doubling the size of the Peace Corps "to renew our diplomacy."

    "We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set," Obama said in July. "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

    Broun said he also believes Obama likely will move to ban gun ownership if he does build a national police force.

    Obama has said he respects the Second Amendment right to bear arms and favors "common sense" gun laws. Gun rights advocates interpret that as meaning he'll at least enact curbs on ownership of assault weapons and concealed weapons. As an Illinois state lawmaker, Obama supported a ban on semiautomatic weapons and tighter restrictions on firearms generally.

    "We can't be lulled into complacency," Broun said. "You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I'm not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I'm saying is there is the potential."

    Obama's transition office did not respond immediately to Broun's remarks.

    Yes we did missy! Funnily enough I grabbed the article off Faux News but it's an AP job so I found the last bit that Faux neglected to publish:


    Obama's idea endorsed by Bush administration
    The Obama transition team declined to comment on Broun's remarks. But spokesman Tommy Vietor said Obama was referring in the speech to a proposal for a civilian reserve corps that could handle postwar reconstruction efforts such as rebuilding infrastructure — an idea endorsed by the Bush administration.

    Broun said he believes Obama would move to ban gun ownership if he does build a national security force.

    haha does this douche even realise how retarded he sounds?
    i'd love to take one of these idiots and actually quiz them on 'radical' marxist and socialist philosophy. i'm pretty certain they wouldn't have a fucking clue.
    it's funny he mentioned the guns. i was reading somewhere yesterday that ever since obama took off in the polls before the election, gun sales have been going up - right-wingers are scared obama's gonna take away their right to build their own private arsenals at home.

    That, too. A lot of this is a right to bear arms issue. I've been crusing the right-wing blogs and this comes up on every single one of them, including Obama's "Thugocracy." WTF? The world is scary enough without them making up this shit.

    You should try it, its amusing. I had a nice big fat argument the other day before the election where a frriend was telling me that Obama and Reverend Wright were staunch Marxists in that church....rolls eyes.

    Goddamn fearmonger. Just more of what the GOP dished out to cow the masses during the past 8 years. Like the ultra conservative agenda worked for this country.

    I wonder if this idiot voted for Defense Authorization Act of 2006, which nullified The Posse Comitatus Act enacted after the Civil War. That's something to be concerned about.

    Shouldn't there be an IQ test before someone can run for public office? Goodness gracious this is the party we're supposed to believe will protect this country? Why yes, I guess I'm convinced, we should probably begin a recall proceeding imediately - we certainly cannot put people to work and we certainly cannot have bridges that don't fall down...why that's just just just just un-American. I'm fine here with my substandard education, my bible, my KFC, Walmart and Uzi.
