Storm Trooper Tactics Used By Anti-Health Care Reformers
When Hitler lost the German Presidency, over 63% of the vote was against him in the run off election, he and his followers resorted to bringing chaos to the streets, which included initiating political violence that led to murder to obtain their goals.
Washington State Congressman Brian Baird (D) and North Carolina Congressman Brad Miller (D) have both reported death threats along with the Capitol Police reporting that other members of Congress have received threatening emails.
One has only to look at the “mob” mentality taking place in the Town Hall debates on Health Care to witness the revival of this “fascist” technique of inducing chaos, intimidation and shouting down legitimate debate.
Fox News’s Glenn Beck followers turned a Tampa Town Hall meeting into a near riot while overwhelming organizers and planners.
Francis Schaeffer, son of the leading far-right Christian leader for the anti-abortion movement, recently had this to say about the “thuggery” taking place at the Health Care Town Hall Meetings:
Here’s the emerging American version of the fascist’s formula: combine millions of dollars of lobbyists’ money with embittered troublemakers who have a small army of not terribly bright white angry people (collected over decades through pro-life mass mailing networks) at their beck and call, ever ready to believe any myth or lie circulated by the semi literate and completely and routinely misinformed right wing — Evangelical religious underground. Then put his little mob together with the insurance companies’ big bucks. That’s how it works — American Brown Shirts at the ready.
The Beck’s; Hannity’s; O’Rielly’s and Limbaugh’s all talk about how Orwellian the Health Care Reform issue has become but they push their mob to a frenzy as they copy the actions of the early 30’s Nazi minority to obtain their end goals.
