You may remember Paul Broun, a Republican congressman from the state of Georgia. His last 15 minutes of fame came awhile back when he tried to forbid our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan from reading "porn," which he defined as magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse.
Broun, you see, loves Jesus, and has concluded that he must impose his particular religious beliefs on society as a whole - to help save the world, you know.
Broun is back in the news, confirming that he is not just a twit from Georgia, but a truly evil man. Why is it so many of these born-againers stink of sewage and rot?
Broun is claiming "President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist dictatorship." The reason is because back in July, Obama made a speech which suggested that we establish a civilian national security force. An Obama spokesman said that this referred to a proposal for a civilian reserve corps "that could handle postwar reconstruction efforts such as re-building infrastructure -- an idea endorsed by the Bush administration."
Broun, however, thinks he knows better than Obama what Obama meant. This kind of civilian national security force, says Broun, is "exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did.
"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."
So, to Broun, Obama is either like Hitler or Stalin?
The man is obviously an ignorant moron, and exemplifies how difficult it will be for the Democrats to "reach across the aisle" and work in a bipartisan manner for the good of the country. How do you work with someone who's as nuts as this clown?
If Broun is really worried about a military force, he ought to be fussing about the fact that Bush has, for the first time in history, and in aanother show of disdain for our Constitution, put U.S. Army combat troops on the streets of America to help keep "law and order" in time of crisis.
Whether that is Hitlerian or Marxist is really irrelevant. It is scary as all hell!
Update: Broun has apologized for calling Obama a Marxist. No word yet as to whether he will apologize for comparing Obama to Hitler.
