A Whiff Of Fascism
From Obama's White House

by Matthew Vadum - March, 29th, 2009 - American Spectator

Reports say that the head of GM is quitting under duress from the Obama administration ...

As Mussolini said, "Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."

For the president of the United States to be able to, effectively, fire the head of a major corporation is not a road America has ever headed down before.

Then no "community organizer" with an Alinsky style hatred for free enterprise has ever been President before.

The most amusing aspect of the entire auto bailout process, or shutdown, is where Obama promises to "stand behind" anyone who buys a car during the reorganization period. I wonder who will do the work, the post office? Or does Obama really mean what he says. That he will "stand behind" them so he can watch them suffer. With his avowed Alinsky plan to deceive people into hating capitalism, that would be the better tactic.

What this proves more than anything else is the total disconnect between the real world and Obama's view of the world. He sees the financial leaders of banks and brokerage firms as people he needs to do business with. He sees no value to real producers of goods, like the auto companies, except as they provide jobs for unions. The disconnect could not be more obvious. He fires a man who has done an incredible job of restructuring GM, cutting their bloated work force in half, while refusing to fire a single head of a bank.
