Just to refresh your memory, a few days ago, I wrote about how the Obama campaign had the Secret Service harass a private citizen merely for telling an Obama campaign worker that Obama was a socialist and a baby killer who would let babies die in hospital closets.
That private citizen is the brave Jessica Hughes, who has responded to my earlier post in the comments, which I am now posting here because I think it’s important for all my readers to see.
Umm, I am the woman they visited. I hope you don’t take me as rude interrupting your thread, but I wanted to thank you for posting this and also make a comment.
Since I went public with this I have been contacted by many people who have encountered the same situation. In one case they allowed the Secret Service into their home although they had no warrant and the agents proceeded to confiscate several fictional ‘murder-mystery’ books this man owned. Why? And is this constitutionally appropriate? I have heard the arguments that Bush instituted the Patriot act, but this tells me that the law must be more carefully worded so as to ensure it is not misused. Did they drag me off to a gulag? No. Could they have tossed my house if I let them in? Yes. And who would have stopped them? Even the FBI later said I have no recourse and they have no jurisdiction over the Secret Service. To read the detailed report of what occurred you can check my blog at freezethefascism.blogtownhall.com.
I would not insult those who suffered in either Communist nations or under Nazi Germany or in Fascist Italy by comparing my situation to theirs, but I want this brought to light because in those nations, if people had spoken up at the point when the abuses were relatively small perhaps they would never have been able to carry off such atrocities unchecked.
Further, I want to say that as a Christian myself, I have a great heart for Israel. May I venture to say that while the Jewish population of America may desire support for Israel from the U.S. government, they are well served in that goal by the Christian people of this country who also desire to see Israel remain whole and respected for being both the land of the Chosen People and where the man we believe to be the Messiah was born and died. I find it very farfetched that Sarah Palin would demand conversion from any Jew while I find it quite likely that she will be a ‘pit-bull’ for Israel, siding with her in offering no quarter to the usurpers of her right to exist. Doubters should study the history of the appeasement policies of the Left and how well they worked in eras like WWII and the Cold War.
Beyond simply supporting Odinga, Obama has a family history there. His own father was a supporter of Odinga Odinga (Raila’s father). Obama Sr. came to the U.S. and studied here to further his abilities in the gov’t of Kenya. He abandoned Barack and his mother to go back to Kenya where his attempts to join Odinga Odinga in replacing the (then) current govt. When it failed and O sr fell out of favor he became a drunk who eventually killed himself in a drunken wreck. Obama speaks at length about how this affected him in his memoir. He discusses his desire to relate only with blacks, that he ceased letting people know his mother was white. His heros were radicals like Frantz Fanon and Malcolm X. He discusses relating more to X than to Dr. King. Now we see him affecting the outcome of an election on the side of the son of the man his father failed to move into office. How much more of a connection would it take to seem inappropriate?
Well the list goes on but I won’t take any more of your time. I just want to say that I appreciate what you did here, and I ask those who are supporting Obama to really look at his past. Fascism is always a youth movement that is about Change for Change’s sake and fascism is what I see coming from Obama.
