Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.
So, let’s take a stroll down history lane for a brief tutorial of the infamous brown shirts of Adolph Hitler. It might help us understand a bit better Obama’s purple shirts, aka the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and other assorted thug groups that have stepped up to do his bidding against those who aren’t standing idle as he tries to cram his dangerous policies down their throats.
Adolph Hitler established his brown shirts as a political force to terrorize political opponents on the streets, which discouraged political competition. Eventually, they envisioned themselves to be a new German revolutionary army, wreaking havoc in the streets despite Hitler’s order to lie low as he carefully maneuvered for dictatorial power. As a result, they were squashed in favor of the black shirts, aka the SS, a group that grew from being Hitler’s personal bodyguards to an organization formed through Hitler’s secret alliance with military chiefs to ensure that when the current president, Paul von Hindenburg died, he would succeed as dictator.
In May 2009, Andy Stern, the president of Mr. Obama, boasted to the Las Vegas Sun, ” “We spent a fortune to elect Barack Obama — $60.7 million to be exact — and we’re proud of it.” And as reported by Michelle Malkin, the union’s leadership is getting its money’s worth. http://michellemalkin.com/2009/05/13/big-labors-investment-in-obama-pays-off/
While the leadership lives high and mighty, they deploy their rank and file on the streets to use the “power of persuasion”, and if that doesn’t work “the persuasion of power” (per Andy Stern himself), to ensure Obama’s policies aren’t “maligned” by angry patriotic American mobs. Here’s an example of just what Stern means by persuasion of power: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtDRx3h8JJA&feature=related.
ACORN, aka the red shirts, is no slouch in this game either. While they haven’t resorted to such reported violence, they certainly aren’t shy about throwing their weight around, while rallying local law enforcement to assist in their cause of ensuring nothing as deplorable as open discussion and peaceable assembly get in the way of “their man’s” healthcare plans. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHqt1f46v3Y&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ebreakdownofamerica%2Ecom%2F%3Fp%3D351&feature=player_embedded
Finally, we cannot forget the Black Panthers’ role in ensuring that law abiding citizens know exactly what’s coming to us as we make our way to vote in our democratic elections. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neGbKHyGuHU. In return for their service, the Obama administration dropped all charges of intimidation brought against the three gentlemen in question.
There seems to be striking similarities between Obama’s special shirt groups and Hitler’s brown shirts. It will be interesting to see how widespread their activities become over the next 15 months while we battle against the Democrat’s numerous un-American policy proposals, and hope for some new balance of power in the Congress by the end of 2010. In the meantime, do we have enough controls in our military to ensure Obama can’t create his own SS? All military members are required to pledge a loyalty oath to the constitution and protect it from enemies foreign and domestic. Are patriotic Americans expressing their disagreement with government healthcare plan a domestic enemy that threatens the constitution? Let’s hope not.
