Gooper Brownshirt Tactics On Dissent

I can't believe that Move On didn't know they were gonna get hit hard for this ad. Anyone who has watched the GOP over the last 6 years would certainly know that the reaction from the Right would be over-the-top.

However, I don't see the American people being swayed by the opinions expressed on Cabal News so much anymore.

The Republican Brown-Shirts Are at it Again

A. Alexander, September 16th, 2007
The Republican Brown-Shirts are at it again. They're being oh-so-Nazi-like in their attack on an American group that has dared to exercise its right to dissent (John McCain says they should be thrown out of the country .. Nazi, much?). This time the Republican Jackboots are assailing MoveOn.Org, for articulating something that a recent poll found a majority of Americans believe to be the case, i.e. General Petraeus would, during Congressional testimony, willfully misrepresent and manipulate the facts and data regarding Iraq.

The Republican Brown-Shirt Brigade is attacking MoveOn even though they know that Petraeus has a history of being both a known Bush-backer and, when it comes to the situation in Iraq, a proven manipulator of reality. Should anyone not believe the above stated facts, just read the General's Washington Post op-ed published on September 26, 2004; Page B07 and titled, "Battling for Iraq."

Does any of this sound familiar ... like recently before Congress, familiar? In 2004, three years ago, Petraeus claimed, "18 months after entering Iraq, I see tangible progress," and he insisted, "Iraqi leaders are stepping forward, leading their country." Petraeus's biggest 2004 lie: "Today approximately 164,000 Iraqi police and soldiers (of which about 100,000 are trained and equipped) are performing a wide variety of security missions."

Really? There were, in 2004, "100,000 Iraqi police and soldiers trained and equipped"? There may not even be that many Iraqi police and soldiers trained and equipped in 2007 ... there certainly weren't that many in 2004. Sure, the 'Loyal Bushies' and their lapdog Generals, Petraeus included, liked to make such claims, but every assessment had proven them liars.

Still, despite Petraeus's track record of lies, manipulations, and a willingness to prostrate himself before Bush and for Bush's benefit, the Republican Brown-Shirts are attacking MoveOn. And, of course, America's corporate-owned media goes along with the absurdity. The media never once point out Petraeus's history of dishonesty, dishonor or, getting down to the real issue, his dream of running for president as a Republican.

On some level the GOP's Jackboots do want to defend Petraeus's "integrity," such as it is (no doubt it is fully inline with the 'integrity' of a party of perverts and corrupted politicians) but mostly they really hope to bully the media into being too afraid -- using the New York Times as the example -- to allow dissenting voices access to their pages and airwaves. Ultimately, intimidation is the real objective of the Republican Brown-Shirts. MoveOn's truthful Petraues portrayal is simply one more excuse for the Republicans' oh-so-Nazi-like Shock Troops to try and intimidate dissent into submission.

The tactics that are being employed by today's Republicans are not a little like the tactics employed by Hitler's Brown-Shirts, their tactics of trying to intimidate dissent into silence are EXACTLY the tactics that Hitler's henchman employed. America's feckless corporate-owned media, New York Times included, will cower to these attacks ... MoveOn and other Progressive organizations must not! They must hit back and, too, begin to expose the Republican tactics for what they are ... an oh-so-Nazi-like attempt by Republican Brown-Shirts to stifle dissent.
