people waking up

a quiet coup

"If U.S. corporate media were not complicit in the Quiet Coup staged by Neoconservatives of BOTH major political parties since December 2000, we would have been thoroughly informed about all of the following, with their implications and ramifications. But corporate media has so much to gain by its complicity, and so much to lose by fulfilling its responsibility in a supposed democracy, that it has gone along with the misinformation, neglect, and cover-ups.

The Democrats refused to contest either the 2000 or 2004 elections, despite glaring irregularities and violations of precedence. Democrats have continued to vote for most of the Cheney/Bush agenda, both foreign and domestic, over the last seven and a half years, with very few exceptions."

I have done more than a few posts on this and it ic complicity and a fear for retribution against those who do speak up as unfailingly happen. Check this out in relation to what you posted!
Remember the 14 common threads of Fascism: keep the entire world in mind but particularly how everyone of them applies in America today. This is scary!

* 1. Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism. Bingo!

* 2. Disdain for the importance of human rights. Bingo!

* 3. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause. Bingo!

* 4. The supremacy of the military/avid militarism. Bingo!

* 5. Rampant sexism. This is the only thread "I hope" does not apply here but does with the Islamists

* 6. A controlled mass media. Bingo!

* 7. Obsession with national security. Bingo!

* 8. Religion and ruling elite tied together. Bingo!*

9. Power of corporations protected. Bingo!

* 10. Power of labor suppressed or eliminated. Bingo!

* 11. Disdain and suppression of intellectuals and the arts. (at the link read how it does apply)

* 12. Obsession with crime and punishment.

* 13. Rampant cronyism and corruption. Bingo!

* 14. Fraudulent elections. Bingo!*
Read the explanations it's alarming
Even more frightening is a collection of news articles dating from the start of the Bush presidency divided into topics relating to each of the 14 points of fascism including proof in pictures.Blow by blow examples in pictures of American Fascism under Bush
Talk about this, spread it where it can get heard!

Anyway no one capable of a thought process can deny what is happening today unless they are one of the enablers.

nice list, aver. patriot!
betmo, One of the most pressing political concerns is accountability by the media and both houses of Congree, Repubs and Dems alike. They have all failed our country.

Get used to it, because I'm telling you right now, whoever sits in the white Outhouse for the next four years, is going to have us looking out of the same windows - with new frames is all!
