Well, it looks like the fascists (not just the communists/marxists like Van Jones) are starting to come out of the liberal closet:
Watching both the health care and climate/energy debates in Congress, it is hard not to draw the following conclusion: There is only one thing worse than one-party autocracy, and that is one-party democracy, which is what we have in America today.
One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages. That one party can just impose the politically difficult but critically important policies needed to move a society forward in the 21st century. It is not an accident that China is committed to overtaking us in electric cars, solar power, energy efficiency, batteries, nuclear power and wind power. Chinaâ€™s leaders understand that in a world of exploding populations and rising emerging-market middle classes, demand for clean power and energy efficiency is going to soar. Beijing wants to make sure that it owns that industry and is ordering the policies to do that, including boosting gasoline prices, from the top down.
Our one-party democracy is worse….
It seems liberals really are just industrial barons trying to enslave the masses to win the biggest bucks. Where is human rights, individual rights, the right to life? All lost in the envy of ‘elites’ who can order others to do their bidding. Now that Prince Obama is failing, they have come to the realization that it better to stop pretending they believe in America, democracy and free markets. The facade is falling due to their frustration that America is rejecting their idiocy.
The only problem with arrogant elites like this well known, once popular journalist is their arrogance so outstrips their intellect and ingenuity. They are not leaders. They visionary fantasies are seen as the jokes they are. This nut job thinks the oppression of China is preferable (since he naively thinks he would be in the ruling class and not simply a human cog in the state factory).
Their lack of ability and vision means the world would be better off under their jack boots? The quietly confident ,silent majority that make this country tick are about to slap these arrogant buffoons upside their oversized heads.
Update: Here is the knucklehead in his own words. If feel like running the fool over with a tank. At any rate, it seems Friedman is most upset that the GOP is leaving Obama to the hell that is the Democrat party:
With a few notable exceptions, the Republican Party is standing, arms folded and saying â€œno.â€ Many of them just want President Obama to fail. Such a waste. Mr. Obama is not a socialist; heâ€™s a centrist. But if heâ€™s forced to depend entirely on his own party to pass legislation, he will be whipsawed by its different factions.
Apparently being a smart opposition is unfair. Apparently it is unfair of the GOP to force Obama to lead his own party. What does this say about Obama?
