Obama is Not Like Hitler...But More Like Lenin...

Original post made by Beth, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jul 15, 2010

Obama is leading our nation backwards into chaos parallel to the early years of 20th-century Russia. In the early 20th century, Bolshevik revolutionaries led by Vladimir Lenin pieced together a bureaucratic authority that quickly developed into a totalitarian government.

Lenin imposed government on the people and will systematically dismantle personal freedom. As more and more of the private sector is regulated and controlled by big government, all categories of society will fall under the umbrella of one central authority.

Lenin imposed upon Russia a Decree on the Suppression of Hostile Newspapers justifying a series of measures to stop all of the press that spoke out against the revolution.

Lenin, in establishing the young USSR, assigned a Control Commission to oversee the government departments for the sake of imposing authority and policing rumors or insinuations that are critical of the party.

Lenin studied revolutionary Chernyshevsky, while Obama studied socialist-activist Saul Alinsky. Lenin was a collective agitator, while Obama was a community organizer. Lenin, like Obama, believed the public is no more than an instrument of the party, and both emphasize the importance of seizing power and getting things done, whatever the cost.

Obama, like Vladimir Lenin, has waged his war against capitalism. It is wrong-minded, blaming capitalism as the cause of corruption.

Obama is setting up the network and laying a foundation for egregious misuse of power. Obama is laying the foundation for dictatorship. He is deliberately bypassing checks and balances, using exclusive executive order to govern.

Understand history...it is repeating itself. We must stop this march to totalitarianism by Obama.

You can make a huge difference in Pleasanton by VOTING McNERNEY OUT.

This list was copied/pasted from an opinion piece at American Thinker. Posting opinions is an exercise in free speech, but it in no way makes the opinions into facts.

The poster exhorts people to understand history yet clearly lacks an understanding. If they really understood history, they wouldn't target Obama as the reason why the executive branch has been accumulating more power over the other branches. It's been going on for well over 200 years!

...and the Tea Party just keeps nuttier and nuttier. Nice try at Glenn Beck-style right-wing revisionist history.

Just a guess...that Stacey, you do not have school age children, therefore you don't give a rip that Obama and his marxist buddies are bankrupting this nation...and are severely destroying our children's future and prosperity. Therefore you'll defend our Communist President...and his band of Czars, and puppets...like McNerney...REGARDLESS of the consequences.

I despise anyone who defends this Communist who is destroying America. Looks like you are one of his biggest fans.

Beth,

Whether or not I have school-aged children (which is none of your business, btw) is no excuse for your ignorance of history. I wasn't defending Obama, just pointing out where you need to do a little more reading and come up to speed on the bigger picture.
