This past week, Chairman Zero’s descent into corrupt, third-world dictator status accelerated with three major developments.
- An Emerging Controversy That Chrysler Dealerships Owned by Republican Donors are being closed, while those owned by Democrat Cronies are being remained open. The Republican dealerships being closed are among the most profitable, while some Democrat-owned Dealerships are being given a monopoly in their local market. The decision about closing dealerships was made by Obama’s appointed “Car Czar” Steven Rattner. This puts me in mind of dictators like Hugo Chavez, Robert Mugabe, and Fidel Castro confiscating property and handing it out to political cronies.
- Political Appointees at the “Justice” Department abruptly halted an investigation into the Thug tactics of the Black Panthers used to intimidate voters in the 2008 Elections. A Civil-Rights Activist from the 1960’s was appalled by the actions of the Black Panthers, which included telling white voters, “You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.” The Justice Department has officially become the “Just Us” Department.
- The Obama Regime has announced a crackdown on “any person” who criticizes the Stimulus Package. The language used in the announcement has creepy echoes of every rationalization used by the government to take away human rights (free speech in this case.) These are “extraordinary circumstances,” and for the good of the nation, we can’t allow any speech that would threaten economic recovery; it’s like when the Iranian mullahs shut down the opposition press, or Hugo Chavez shut down the only remaining opposition television station. (And the American left cheered!)
And we are only four months into this Chicago thug’s regime. What more is to come?
