If It’s Thursday, Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) Is Calling Obama a Dictator « The Washington Independent
Blake Aued has the scoop on the latest of many rants from the ultra-conservative Georgia congressman on the subject of whether President Obama is becoming a dictator. (The first came days after the 2008 election.) “He told a meeting of the Morgan County Republicans on Wednesday night,” Aued reports, “that Obama already has or will have the three things he needs to make himself a dictator: a national police force, gun control and control over the press.”
He has the three things that are necessary to establish an authoritarian government. And so we need to be ever-vigilant, because freedom is precious.
Broun’s a believer in the “Obama wants to create a civilian army” myth, which he goes on about at length.
