I honestly can not think of any other word for it. Years ago, I read a lot of Gramsci which offered brilliant descriptions of fascism in action. It was not so much that these thugs who beat up union members, peaceniks, and socialists were following orders from top down, yet nevertheless their terrorism was essential to the fascist state.
Now it would be unfair to suggest that Obamafacism even remotely carries out the physical thuggery of Gramsci’s Italy, but their rhetoric and faux outrage does share similarities. The most recent is the character assassination of Hillary Clinton in regards to her reference of RFK. Prior to dealing with the lies and distortions of the Obamafacists, lets examine reality.
Here are some responses from Obamafacists via Cannonfire.
This Bitch has really done it now!!
HRC’s intention is clear: Some RW gunman, lone or not, *could* make an attempt on Mr. Obama’s life
“Bitch” is too kind a word to describe this megalomaniac.
Yes, I know the anonymity of the web brings out all sort of Obamafacists. Renee from Crawford’s Take recently wrote how her post was blocked from River Daughter. I go to this site daily and have always found them fair. While it is a site for Clinton supporters they welcome honest dialog, even from Obamabots and Naderites like me. It seemed strange that Renee’s post would be taken down. Here is a reference to her post.
Renee”, watch the video (Argus Leader link above). She does *not* say that she is waiting for Obama to get assassinated. She first mentions her husband’s and then RFK campaign going through June. Stop smearing Hillary with distortions. Don’t the obamabots have numerous blogs where they can vent their Freudian psychodrama rage? Not here please.
And they talk about the working class as being uninformed voters. I think Renee has a good head on her shoulder, but there is no excuse for this kind of ignorance. Watch the frickin video, no where does she remotely suggest as Renee argues that Obama ought to be assassinated. Renee should be ashamed of herself, while it may be standard practice on Daily Kos and HuffPo, it is certainly beneath her.
Even RFK Jr. has a press release calling for the Obamafacists to grow up.
I have heard her make this reference before, also citing her husband’s 1992 race, both of which were hard fought through June. I understand how highly charged the atmosphere is, but I think it is a mistake for people to take offense.
If Obama wants memorilize himself onto some past canidate, it should not be RFK, but Eugene McCarthy. Let’s now give homage, the RFK Funeral Train is coming through.
