In an AP story, Georgia Rep. Broun (R) warns that Barack Obama could be dangerous:
A Republican congressman from Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist 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.”
Where was Rep. Broun while the Bush administration concentrated power in the executive branch, authorized torture as policy, set up the Department of Homeland Security, introduced us all to “rendition”, and generally set about making many of our civil liberties null and void? I don’t remember getting a peep out of him then. And all that stuff actually happened.
The tune mentioned in the title for Rep. Paul Broun should be obvious. Yes, it does sound crazy, Rep. Broun. Full stop.
