If anyone yet doubts that Fascism comes from the left and not the right, one need look no further than the new Chief of Staff appointee for President-Elect Obama.  Rahm Emmanuel was quoted in 2006 as pushing for the same sort of “Civilian Force” that Barack Obama mentioned a couple of weeks ago that should be “just as well funded” as the military.

“Somewhere between the age of 18 to 25 you will do three months of training. You can do it at some point in your college time,” he said. “There can be nothing wrong with all Americans having a joint, similar experience of what we call civil defense training or civil service.”

Now those of you who think this is “fear-mongering” I will quote a prominent Democrat who recently said something along the lines of: “If it walks like a duck, and it talks like a duck…then it’s a Duck.”  And then please recall how this author’s position on the William Ayers’ association had nothing to do with Terrorism but instead with a radical view of the purpose of public education.

REQUIRING civil service from the youth of a country is a CORE TENET of Fascism, in EVERY CASE. Here’s the video:

Obama is of course “softening” the requirement on his “change.gov” website.  It used to read:

Originally, under the tab “America Serves,” Change.gov read, “President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in under served schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps. Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year,” the site announced.

But now the end of it instead reads:

“…developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.”

So now instead of legally requiring students to participate, the Government would simply bribe them with cheaper education to participate.

Meanwhile, the FEATURED ARTICLE on Wikipedia today is the “anti-tobacco movement in Nazi Germany”.  This, of course, was the number one progressive chink in Mike Huckabee’s armor, so perhaps if he was the President-elect and started pushing for a no-smoking ban, then someone somewhere would be drawing similar comparisons, but nevertheless…there is no conceivable way for any Federal Agency to develop or enforce a “Civilian Defense Corps” without a MONUMENTAL and…yes…Fascistic, overreach in Government power and influence.  The obvious question is: what are they going to learn, and who is going to teach it to them.

Should we be scared?  Yes.  We should be.  This is where we have to start asking, “What kind of change?” A question that might have been asked more appropriately about 10 days ago.

Rahm’s “Civilian National Security Force”

  • So, based on the change, Obama’s moving towards the center. Right?

    Maybe I can get a job teaching these kids. In 50 hours, I could go a long way towards helping them develop a healthy suspicion of government. And maybe even have enough time to teach them about the government’s role in the never-ending erosion in the purchasing power of a dollar.

    Of the ‘Corps’ listed on his site, the ‘Clean Energy Corp’ sound like the neatest one. Maybe they go door to door explaining to cut lights off when you leave a room, don’t leave the water running when you brush your teeth, etc.

  • “moving to the center” to you translates as “hiding his intentions” to me. Making it “voluntary” doesn’t comfort me in the least.

    Income tax withholdings started out as “voluntary” as well.

  • Great observation on the “voluntary” aspect of this. I have no idea what makes this different from the national guard, and it seems like a backdoor draft to me. Since I am over 25, I fully support this, and think it should be enacted in February. This is who the kids voted for, and I’m sure they’ll embrace this with open arms, until they have to start waking up early and doing push-ups.

    Emanuel did this in Israel and obviously thinks it is a neat idea. The best thing the GOP can do is let this administration make a few big mistakes.

  • I’m over 25 but I have a 2 and half year old. And even though I’m inclined to believe that by the time he is of age, whatever totalitarian bullshit that Obama et al. enacts can be reversed (and possibly enacted again…an reversed again for all I know), I’m more hesitant to take the chance.

    And I do not care whether the GOP benefits or not. This administration will make mistakes, but I have NO confidence in the GOP’s ability to take advantage of it, and I’m beyond caring about them at this point.

    It’s not up to the GOP; it’s up to us.

  • To see a video about young people being recruited to be environmental police, type in the following sentence into Google search.

    Al Gore’s Green Pioneers program to fight global warming!

    “Al Gore has announced the new “Green Pioneers” program, a children’s organization that will fight global warming and work to safeguard our environment. Green Pioneers Camps will be established across the U.S., and members will pass out literature, monitor energy consumption, and the like.”

    Another form of civilian policing–this time through recruiting youth into “Green Pioneers” program. I have heard that Obama may give Al Gore a spot in his administration or at least use him as an adviser.
