A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Maobama Wants YOU

Posted by Godefroi on March 18, 2009

Taken from a commentary at American Thinker.
 
A sitting President of the United States is “organizing a political organization loyal to him, bound by a pledge, outside the government and existing party apparatus. The historical precedents are ominous.”

[…]

But there is a new organization on the political scene — “Organizing for America,” announced by President Barack Obama in late January but officially unfurled last weekend.

Obama describes OFA as a “grass-roots movement” but OFA is a “project” of the Democratic Natrional Committee.

As Politico reported, OFA will take the 10 million person database built up by the Obama campaign “to mobilize support for the president’s legislative agenda.”

A visit to the OFA website reveals that supporters are not simply asked to sign up, they are asked to take a pledge. A pledge to support — not the flag, not the constitution, not the country, not even the Democratic party, but Obama and his “bold plan.” OFA does not use the Democratic Party logo but the “O”-shaped logo of the Obama campaign in which the red white and blue of the flag are abstracted to soft pastel colors.
[…]

You will not find any mention of OFA`s governing structure, their budget, their bylaws, or their officers at the OFA website. Donations to the website go to the DNC, but OFA is managed out of the White House. If you click on the comments button, you are taken to a link to the White House email.

So we have a Movement — this is their term, not mine — organized by, and loyal to, a sitting President. Pledge canvassers, armed with your name, will ask you to pledge loyalty to the President too. A president whose term has already become a permanent campaign, is signing up ground forces in a mass organization pledged to personal loyalty to their Leader.
Does anyone know of any historical precedents for this in the United States?
Did Mitch Stewart, youthful director of OFA, who asks Obama’s acolytes to organize “neighborhood by neighborhood”  study anything at school about Mao‘s “Red Guards?
How about Fidel Castro‘s “widespread system of neighborhood informers“?

Or Hugo Chavez‘s use of “neighborhood committees“?

 
Did Stewart learn anything about democracy at all?
Do any of Obama’s pledged servants understand why a sitting president has no business creating and deploying his own supporters to help organize their neighbors? 
Keep in mind that these acolytes have renounced any thought of questioning the actual policies of the maximum leader. Whatever he says, they are for it. They have given their word.
 
And they are coming to have a talk with you.
 
Remember, people, that he stated that he wants a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as our MILITARY.  Isn’t this a great way to get that ball rolling, under the guise of a harmless association of mere political supporters?
As Thomas Lifson wrote, “This is not the way a democracy is supposed to operate.

  1. If one of these Obamabots accosts me, somebody will have to go my bail.

    This is another demagoguery tactic. Can’t people see and understand that?

    “Can’t people see and understand that?”

    Apparently not, unfortunately.

    I made it through the day without one O-bot knocking on my door. You?

  3. This is quite a hot information. I think I’ll share it on Facebook.
