That's what ACORN CEO, Bertha Lewis says here at the Young Democratic Socialists winter conference ( Hitler's party was called the National Democratic Socialists...but that's just an un-related co-incidence):
Here is the CEO of ACORN, calling herself a socialist, saying that she's pushing a socialist agenda. From Gateway Pundit:
One of Barack Obama’s first big “community organizer” jobs involved ACORN in 1992. He worked along side ACORN before he became an elected official. Obama also trained ACORN employees. He represented ACORN in court. Obama worked with and protested with ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN in 2008 for voter registration efforts.
And, ACORN even canvassed for Obama in 2008.
In 2009 Obama promoted a top ACORN operative, Patrick Gaspard, who’s organization was fined $775,000 for election violations, to a top post in the White House. Gespard is helping shape domestic policy today.
Obama has appointed a self-described communist (Van Jones), a woman that spoke of her admiration for mass-murderer Chairman Mao (Anita Dunn), has himself spoken of his belief that the Constitution is flawed because it does not re-distribute wealth, in an interview in 2001:
... the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution...
... the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you. Says what the federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn't shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change.
The reason the Constitution says what the government CANNOT do, not what it CAN do was essential to the Founding Fathers, who, at all costs wanted to constrain its possible growth into an all-encompassing power. That is what they had just fought a war to be free of. They wanted it's role to be minimal and to leave people the hell alone.
That to our President is a problem. The Constitution he was sworn to uphold is a problem. For him, it is essential to ignore the government's role as defined by the Constitution, and to accelerate it's transformation into an all-powerful wealth re-distributive engine. What you have will be decided by those who know better than you what you need and deserve. Your rights will come from the government not God, as the Founders stated:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness... (Declaration of Independence)
Notice: endowed by their Creator, not their government.
Notice: pursuit of happiness, not guarantee of happiness. You are free to pursue owning a home. You are not guaranteed to own a home.
Yet we are told home ownership, healthcare, and an increasing long list of other things that we are free to pursue are "our rights."
Those rights are nowhere to be found in the Constitution or Declaration.
Yet SOMEHOW, despite all of this, it is still seen as a smear, even hate-speech, to call him a socialist, let alone Marxist, communist or fascist.
Yes, fascist. Lets get one thing straight, Fascism is on the LEFT not the RIGHT. Communists want the state to OWN all private business. Fascists want to CONTROL all private business. It's why Mussolini said,
Lessee. The gov't has merged with banking, housing, the auto industry and health care, giving them, According to Michelle Bachman, control of 51% of what was once private industry. Now they are going for cap n' tax, controlling CARBON, the carbon that touches EVERY industry, the carbon that is in every breath you exhale.
“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”
But don't call that fascist.
In reality, I suppose the only truly accurate label for the policies of The One True Arisen Obamessiah and his minions is Statism- an all powerful, all controlling state. It is where Democrats and even many so-called Republicans have been taking us for years. Obama has merely floored the accelerator, pedal to the metal. Statism fits because they are, after all, post-modernists. A lil' dab of Marxism, a lil' dab of Fascism, what ever it takes to put them selves in a situation of total control, to distribute favor according to their whims. Since they see themselves as so intelligent, spiritual, highly evolved and benevolent, they feel they have a right to that power. And of course, they want that power because they just want to help you.
That is what the benevolent slave owners told themselves in the old south. The slaves were to0 primitive and stupid to help themselves, so he was doing them a favor by keeping them in chains to work for him in exchange for the little bit of food and clothing that he knew they could not possibly go out and get for themselves. This was a very popular narrative, especially in southern literature just after the civil war, reminiscing about "the happy darkies" in the good 'ol days.
He made them slaves to help them.
Oddly enough, the slaves thought they would be just fine with freedom.
If MSNBC and CNN were around back then, those slaves would have been called violent extremists and a danger to society.
People like Bertha Lewis are the supreme irony of our time.
