Is America heading towards fascism? It’s a question that every American should be asking themselves. We have a governmental system with complete power. A Main Stream Media that suppresses opposition and criticism of the Obama administration . A Congress that is regimenting all industry and commerce. A President that emphasizes aggressive nationalism and often criticizes America when abroad. This pretty much meets the definition of what fascism means. Or does it? Let’s see some examples of current events:
Department of Home Land Security (DHS) released a report about potential Right Wing Extremist that may cause Man Made Disasters in the homeland.
In a footnote in the report, right-wing extremism was defined as hate-motivated groups and movements, such as hatred of certain religions, racial or ethnic groups. It went on to say, “It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.“
The intelligence assessment issued to law enforcement last week said some military veterans could be susceptible to extremist recruiters or commit lone acts of violence.
Are they taking about domestic terrorism? Oh wait, that’s now called Man Made Disasters by DHS. U.S. Soldiers returning from Iraq or Afghanistan, as possible recruits, for what? What an insult to our enlisted men and women of the military. So, if you are either a Pro Life person, a anti illegal immigration person, or a returning active duty military soldier, you could be a possible Man Made Disaster.
First lets consider the Tax Time Tea Parties that took place all over the country. Here in Hilo, there were over a hundred people that came out to protest. There were more Tea Parties all over Hawai’i: Lihu’e on Kaua’i, Kahalui on Maui, Honolulu on O’Ahu, and on the Big Island Kona and Hilo. Hundreds of people showed up and expressed their displeasure with the government spending of our money.
Remember that Joe HairPlug Biden, our Vice President, said it’s patriotic to pay higher taxes.
With the exception of Fox News, most of the other news outlets either ignored the events and played it down, or tried to discredit the message by belittling the 1st Amendment right to demonstrate through insults and shouting down protesters. Just listen to this CNN reporter that injected her opinion on government spending and tried to shame the protester who was just demonstrating his Constitution right to demonstrate.
If she is a journalist, then who cares about her opinion? A journalist is supposed to be objective and balanced in reporting events. But she interjects her opinion by saying this is a FOX News, Right Wing demonstration against government.
There’s more coming out about this reporter and the smear tactics that CNN spreads. Several other Tea Party protesters captured more about this reporter and what happened after.
This so called reporter, certainly not a journalist, is the same reporter that spread lies and myths about the “Jena 6” case in Louisiana, in which 6 black students were charged with beating a white student.
Fascism: the first rule, eliminate dissent. Rush Limbaugh refers to the Main Stream Media as the Drive By Media and for a very good reason. They arrive, spray misinformation, then leave skid marks out of the parking lot.
During the Tea Parties, the MSM, especially NBC, used language that was vulgar and demeaning calling the people attending the Tea Parties as Tea Baggers. The contempt for the average American Tax Paying voter by the MSM is demonstrated by their bias in reporting stories.
Only part of the story
How much of the real story are you getting. When a event like this happens, where does the newspaper place the story? On the front page, or buried in the back of the D section of the paper. Print media, like the MSM televised, are cut from the same cloth. They are bias in the way the story is reported.
Our Hilo newspaper to its credit, the Tribune-Herald, printed the Tea Party story on the front page, below the fold. There’s no problem with that, because Hilo has its attention on more important matters. The Merrie Monarch Festival is taking place here in Hilo and it has pretty much gotten everyone’s attention. However, there was a strong showing of people supporting the Tea Party to take back our Government.
More demonstrations of suppression of Free Speech is shown here when a reporter was handcuffed and arrested for being a journalist. He was just asking questions.
John Zigler, a Real journalist , got handcuffed and arrested for ….. journalism.
This guy is only trying to ask questions, just questions, and gets arrested. Isn’t journalism about asking questions? Is not asking questions about questionable journalism permitted?
This pretty much sums up the tea parties, freedom of speech, freedom to associate, freedom to demonstrate. It was a great event and a great historical message to the Obama administration. Our right as citizens to demonstrate, to voice our displeasure with the government spending our money in corporate bailouts, banks, automobile companies, insurance companies. If anyone thought the Bush administration was spending too much money at a half a trillion dollars, just look at what 14 Trillion dollars looks like. It may seem like everything is OK now, but wait a year when it’s time to pay off the borrowing. Hyper-inflation and taxes will be high and we will feel it bad.
The government has classified people who protest as a possible terrorist Man Made Disasters and Right Wing Extremist.
You Might Be A Right Wing Extremist If
LETS DO IT AGAIN
