Watch liberal MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow in this video. Watch the whole thing. She’s leading us through what may amount to the most terrifying fascist speech ever delivered to the people of the United States. The sitting president is moving toward setting up a legal structure that will place people in ‘prolonged detention’ BEFORE they have committed any crime or have even been charged with a crime if they are determined to be a possible danger to the United States. Maddow points out how this is the exact premise of the science fiction film Minority Report which was based upon a Philip K. Dick story. This is a well-known liberal commentator who says at the end of the video that this Obama speech is ‘one of the most radical proposals for defying the Constitution that we have ever heard made to the American people.’
The American Civil Liberties Union has responded with short statement.
The bottom line is that this president is shocking human rights and civil liberties organizations all over the world with his rapid move toward fascism. These are largely liberal organizations that once looked upon Mr. Obama as a welcome change from eight years of assaults on civil liberties. They and many liberal voters in the United States are profoundly disappointed and legitimately horrified at what they are hearing from this president.
So, if you write or say something that makes someone somewhere in the Obama administration decide that you might be some sort of danger in the future, you could be arrested and held in a new separate legal structure that could keep you imprisoned indefinitely – forever.
That is a profoundly un-American and illegal idea.
