Tea Party Fascists: Allen West calls for mass censorship of US media

• RawStory.com
 
Rep.-elect West is not the first to compare the release of confidential US documents by WikiLeaks to a terrorist attack. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, and Rep. Peter King (R-NY) have made similar comparisons. Even CNN bought into the analogy, wondering if WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is a "journalist or terrorist" during its coverage of the secrets outlet. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said the person who gave WikiLeaks 250,000 secret diplomatic cables deserves the death penalty. Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) said the New York Times, who published documents released by WikiLeaks, "committed at least an act of bad citizenship" and said the news agency deserves "very intensive inquiry by the Justice Department." In sharp contrast to lawmakers like Rep.-elect West and Sen. Lieberman, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has suggested the world needs "more WikiLeaks."

Temper, it just makes me think of what an inept leader I am. Soon as I saw it in print, Tea Party Fascist I thought "well there's another good idea down the drain.

See, if I was thinking ahead, which is something I seem to be doing less and less of these days, I would have seen the only way to counter the neobaggers, the teaocons, would be to make the intellectual space utterly unattractive and thence what I really should have been doing for the past 2 years is founding the Neo-Crypto-Fascist-Youth-Brigade-For-Christ. A prophetic religious order loosely organized around the teachings of Glen Beck. And we can have websites devoted to poorly photoshopped pics of Sarah Palin and Nancy Pellosi in swimwear.

Yeah we could to that or we could just go to Denny's. Who's down for Denny's!

 See?  Power does tend to corrupt - and - makes a man begin to think he is a god.
