    Hi everyone,

    I was just on the internet and I saw an article on Barack Obama being a liberal fascist.

    I found it quite striking - the notion of a liberal fascist seemed quite oxymoronic, but I'm not a great fan of Obama and this kind of makes sense.


    What do you think?

    It's on the New York Daily Sun (.com) if you're interested.

    Well no it doesn't.

    Fascist is oligarchical governance.

    Obama has put several Republicans in his own cabinet.

    The best a Republican President musters is one..and generally in an inconsequential role.

    I don't know. I see many similarities here.

    'Liberal' is a modern euphemism for progressive totalitarian.

    They are all just slight variations of a theme.

    Liberal Fascist is a contradiction. (if you understand political science terms and concepts)

    You're an idiot.

    Economically, yes. He's quite fascist, but I see his takeover of GM, his practically making the CEO of GE a Cabinet position and over regulation of everything else, a means to his ultimate end, namely "transforming America as we know it.
    Take Health Care, for instance. ACA has regulated private insurance and health care providers into scapegoats. He knows that he can make them out to be the villains when costs continue to rise, likely exponentially once obamacare is fully implemented.
    He'll say something like, "We tried, but the insurance companies are only out to hurt the chirun and we have no choice but to nationalize health care."

    Modern Liberalism is the new home of totalitarianism. The USA still has an armed populace who oppose this, so they have to tread slowly -- and carefully

    Can't imagine even Jillian accomplishing this.
