Obama Threatens Military Chaplains with Arrest

October 4th, 2013 - 11:50 pm


Past performance is no guarantee of future results:

The pundits like to slice and dice our country into red states and blue States: red states for Republicans, blue States for Democrats. But I’ve got news for them, too. We worship an awesome God in the blue states, and we don’t like federal agents poking around our libraries in the red states.

— Barack Obama, then still a candidate for the US Senate in Illinois, in his keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston, which put him on the map as a leftwing politician with a future.

Words. Just words:

In a stunning development, some military priests are facing arrest if they celebrate mass or practice their faith on military bases during the federal government shutdown.

“With the government shutdown, many [government service] and contract priests who minister to Catholics on military bases worldwide are not permitted to work – not even to volunteer,” wrote John Schlageter, the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services USA, in an op-ed this week. “During the shutdown, it is illegal for them to minister on base and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so.”

— As spotted today by Bryan Preston at the PJ Tatler, who writes, “Lord Obama Threatens Chaplains with Arrest If They Minister During the Shutdown.”

And that’s on top of the testimony from Sue Martinek, president of the Coalition for Life of Iowa, to the House Ways and Means Committee back in June regarding her group being hounded by the IRS due to their religious faith:

“[T]he IRS continued questioning us,” Martinek continued. “On June 22, 2009, IRS Agent Richards sent us additional written requests, as follows: ‘Please explain how all of your activities, including the prayer meetings held outside of Planned Parenthood are considered educational as defined under 501(c)(3).”

She added: “Organizations exempt under 501(c)(3) may present opinions with scientific or medical facts. Please explain in detail the activities at the prayer meetings. Also, please provide the percentage of time your organization spends on prayer groups as compared with the other activities of the organization. Please explain in detail the signs that are being held up outside of Planned Parenthood and explain how they are considered educational.’

“We have a sadist in the White House,” Bryan writes today. “Is there a Democrat out there with a conscience who will stand up against this? One?”

OK, Priests. Time for a gut check.
May GOD GO WITH YOU (as I'm sure he will).

What "you didn't build that" is all about is Obama's belief that the individual is of negligible worth and none at all outside of the state, which he now considers to be himself. "You didn't build that!" means "Individuals are nothing. The state is everything". Textbook fascist.

"Against individualism, the fascist conception is for the State; and it is for the individual in so far as he coincides with the State, which is the conscience and universal will of man."
"Fascism conceives of the State as an absolute, in comparison with which all individuals or groups are relative, only to be conceived in their relation to the State."
"The Fascist conception of the State is all-embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. Thus understood, Fascism is totalitarian, and the Fascist State -- a synthesis and a unit inclusive of all values -- interprets, develops, and potentiates the whole life of a people."

The above are the words of Benito Mussolini and I can see no significant difference (other than Mussolini being more eloquent probably because he had a much higher IQ) because there are none, between his words and those of Barack "Barackito 'You didn't build that (- the State did)' Obamalini" Obama. If Benito Mussolini was a fascist, and he was, so is Barack Obama.

The audacity of hope was for his campaign
Tyranny, thuggery and demonization are for his reign
His candidacy was rather like that of a Harry Houdini
His presidency is shaping up to be much more like that of a Benito Mussolini

Although he tries to slip it all in under another guise
To all his fascist action most foul we must still be wise
In spite of all the Harry Houdini lies
Dancing in Obama’s evermore Benito Mussolini eyes

Barackito Obamalini, la, la, la.

Frankly, it would not surprise me if Barack Obama's real father was a sperm donation from Benito Mussolini.
